The Witch's Daughter
My Thoughts: At first, I was a tad put off by this book because it is told in two different ways. Through journal entries of Bess' current life, and then through back stories of her old lives. The journal entries are sometimes very short and straight to the point which doesn't leave much to the imagination. However, as the story progresses, it is much easier to get into the lives of Bess. I found it very easy to get extremely frustrated about a lot of things that happened to Bess. I so badly wanted her free of her eternal tormentor, and was always very frustrated at each turn. This is definitely a must read in my opinion if you can deal with sometimes slow starts! Also, I admit, in the beginning it may be hard to like Bess as a character because of her attitude. She is very off putting and kind of rude, almost ready to push away any contact from others which makes me wonder why we're learning about her life at all. However, she does chip away at her exterior and does begin to open up to one main character which is where all of the stories of her other lives take place.
