Are you stuck at home wishing you could talk about your latest read with your friends? Well you’re in luck! We’re hosting a book club and YOU’RE INVITED!

Join Us for Virtual Book Club!

Our next book club pick is The Curse Workers and we’ll be joined by author Holly Black! 

This magical bind-up includes three books: White Cat, Red Glove, and Black Heart. For this month’s book club, we’ll be reading the first book, White Cat!

We’ve read Legendborn, These Violent Delights, Love & Olives, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, Wings of Ebony, The Last Magician, Take Me Home Tonight, The Sky Blues, The Lucky List, Blood Like Magic, The Witch Haven, Vespertine, and Our Violent Ends.

Now let’s read The Curse Workers!

Cassel Sharpe comes from a family of curse workers, people who have the power to change emotions, memories, and luck with the slightest touch of their hands. And since curse work is illegal, they’re also all criminals. Many become mobsters and con artists, but not Cassel. He doesn’t have magic, so he’s an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family—except for the small detail that he killed his best friend, Lila, three years ago.

Cassel has carefully built up a facade of normalcy, blending into the crowd. But his facade starts to crumble when he finds himself sleepwalking, propelled into the night by terrifying dreams about a white cat that wants to tell him something. He’s noticing other disturbing things, too, including the strange behavior of his two older brothers, who are keeping secrets from him. As Cassel begins to suspect he’s an unwitting pawn in a huge con game, he must unravel his past, and his memories. To find the truth, Cassel will have to out-con the conmen.

The best part is that you can read an Extended Excerpt of The Curse Workers on RivetedLit.com right now!
