Recipe and Review: Legacy by Molly Cochran

Posted on September 25th, 2013 in Recipe and Review





I have an odd system for rating books.


If I can last 15 minutes on a walk before throwing it at something, it’s not good.  30 minutes– tolerable. If I wind around the neighborhood for around an hour before realizing my feet hurt, it’s a seriously good book.  If I plop down on the porch after said hour and Ben opens the door to check the mail and finds me, it’s a really really  good book.


Legacy by Molly Cochran is in the last category.  Even though I’m tired of the YA paranormal stuff, Legacy mixes traditional witch legends with a wonderful story and strong character with Katy.  I don’t want to give the plot away, but Goodreads’ lists the synopsis here.

My version: 16-year-old Katy is not happy.  Her father is dumping her off in boarding school to live with his new girlfriend in the same town where her mother went crazy and set herself on fire.  Plagued with rumors, Katy is worried about fitting in until she realizes she’s not in a normal town, but a supernatural one made of witches.  Not only is she a witch, but her mother was one of the most powerful witches of her generation.  As Katy learns to harness her powers and more about her family’s secrets, she’s charged with saving the town from dark forces before it’s too late.

When you have a good book, you need something really tasty to eat with it.




Like pie.  I ate three pieces.  Really.  Then I realized 29 is not 19 and three pieces of pie means a date with Pepto Bismol.


Totally worth it.


It’s my sister’s recipe, which she holds as a deep dark secret….


Excuse me.  I have to go run before she sees this.


Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A new fun post awaits!

    That is one pretty pie, Miranda. No wonder you ate three slices!

  2. Joanne Says:

    Beautiful!! I would have eaten three slices as well! (and paid the price lol)

  3. Krysten Says:

    Totally adding this to my goodreads!

  4. Channon Says:

    You walk and read? I couldn’t do that on our road.

  5. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella Says:

    Hehe can you really walk and read? Or is it an ebook? :)

  6. KizzyDoll Says:

    I shall check it out!! I do the same, if it hasn’t gotten me by 15 minutes, it most likely won’t grip me any longer, so it’s a waste to keep reading. Sometimes, I keep reading, thinking it could get better and other times I throw it :) ) x

  7. Couture Carrie Says:

    Three pieces of pie ~ I am impressed!


  8. Erica Says:

    hahah- why do our tummies go on strike as we get older??? That pie looks delish

  9. Amy Says:

    This pie looks totally fabulous!!!

  10. Pam Says:

    It sounds like a good read. My daughter loves these kinds of books… is it too advanced or inappropriate for a nearly 11 year old?

    You should eat as much pie as you want on your birthday!!

  11. Tamara Says:

    Adding to my Amazon wishlist! I hear you about three pieces of pie at 33 vs. at 23.

  12. Dana Says:

    I do love a good YA book every once in awhile. Right now I’m reading Ruby Red at the recommendation of another blog – it’s good. But not as good as that pie looks…

  13. Natasha Says:

    I can agree with having the pie accompanied with some Pepto, but it is also well worth it!

  14. Sara Says:

    This book sounds awesome! But not as much as that pie!

  15. JDaniel4's Mom Says:

    I love the read in pieces too.

  16. joeinvegas Says:

    I didn’t know your sister’s name was Betty.

  17. Juju at Tales of Whimsy... Says:

    LOL I hear ya sister. It’s amazing the things our bodies use to take isn’t it? I use to drink an entire carton of OJ. That would just about kill me now.

  18. Amber Says:

    The book sounds interesting!

  19. Marjie Says:

    Your sister makes a beautiful pie. I am absolutely jealous of her pie baking skills. I’m a SPED Pie Student.

    And you could afford the 3 pieces of pie. After all, it’s a whole year before you get your own personal birthday pie again.

  20. Reeni Says:

    YOU WALK AND READ? So do I!!!! I never met anyone else who could do that or ever saw anyone else doing it! It takes some talent. I used to do it on the city streets of Tucson. Very dangerous. That is too weird. We’re soul sisters.

  21. Liz Says:

    What a gorgeous pie! Thanks for sharing the secret recipe…I’ll never tell :)

  22. Pietro Says:

    A fantastic pie!

  23. SA Busy Kids Says:

    That’s a beautiful pie!

  24. Meghan Says:
