The Synopsis:

Secrets. Lies. Witchcraft… This is OUR CROOKED HEARTS, a gripping mystery crossed with a pitch-dark tale of modern-day witchcraft, perfect for YA and adult readers.

A dark, compelling and magical suburban fantasy, Melissa Albert takes two women from one family line and seamlessly interweaves a tale of past and present, familiarity and uncanny, light and darkness. It’s a story of mothers and their daughters and of difficult relationships, a story of impossible choices and of secrets held close in the dark; of manipulation for good, bad and for worse… 

About The Author:

Melissa Albert is the New York Times and indie bestselling author of the Hazel Wood series (The Hazel Wood, The Night Country, Tales from the Hinterland) and a former bookseller and YA lit blogger. Her work has been translated into more than twenty languages and included in the New York Times list of Notable Children’s Books. She lives in Brooklyn with her family.

What others say: 

‘EVERY LINE READS LIKE AN INCANTATION, and the result is a book pulsing with magic, one that holds the reader firmly under its spell.’ – V.E. Schwab, bestselling author of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

‘A RIVETING STORY THAT GRIPS YOU LIKE A SPELL until you’re too deep to emerge unscathed! Once again, Melissa Albert reveals the power of magic within a daughter’s grasp and the love of imperfect mothers.” Angeline Boulley, author of Firekeeper’s Daughter

EERIE, EVOCATIVE, AND ELECTRIFYINGLY BRILLIANT. I was immediately gripped from the very first page and completely compelled throughout. I already can’t wait to reread it. Melissa Albert’s writing is magic made real.Katherine Webber, author of The Revelry

Digital Coven #Witchytype review: 

I usually don’t take to young adult novels but the book was gifted to me by a PR and the story looked interesting so I agreed to give it a read. I wasn’t disappointed, as a teenager, I would’ve gobbled this up in an evening. It had an interesting storyline with actual surprises and wasn’t full of cliques and was very well written. The imagery is fabulous and the characters are interesting enough that you wish to find out what the actual truth is. The author creates a very spooky atmosphere and I’d certainly read another book by this author and I say that as someone who prefers darker more adult stories. Highly recommended for a YA fiction book.

Bluebell, the award-winning smart baby monitor brand, has been in touch to let us know that they are launching a Halloween Competition but with an adorable twist this Spooky Season.

What can we say…at Digital Coven, if it crawls or has paws we 100% agree with dressing them in adorable Halloween costumes. Especially, when the lil ‘uns and I have such a beautiful rapport with each other…

Babies, they love me.

Entrants can win several prizes with the top prize being a stay in a haunted manor, The Manor Country House Hotel but don’t worry the ghosts are very family-friendly! To find out more about the Manor check out (My) Emma’s AKA Bunnypuddings Tiktok to see videos and tours of the grounds.

Their staff will attend to the winners as their guests and leave them with a lasting memory of having stayed at a very special location. 

Please note that we cannot promise that any ghosts will make an appearance upon the prize winners stay but the staff are more than happy to reveal all of the spooky stories surrounding the manor upon request. What we can promise is that there are peacocks on site living in the grounds.
