It's been a while now and you must know us. We love books and TV shows so much we have barely time for other things. And recently, we have discovered this wonderful show based on Melissa De la Cruz' books: The Beauchamp Family Series.
I must say, I watched the show and I am in love with it! And after all my excitement and watching all the episodes available, I wanted to share it with you.
Why am I so excited? Because we love Melissa's books and because we see some potential here. If you liked Charmed, maybe this is your show. All the witchcraft, prophecies and deadly enemies are waiting for the Beauchamp witches and it's also a funny and sexy show. Like I said, totally in love with it. Hope it will keep getting this interesting in the future.
Oh, and we don't forget the boys! Did I mention we are totally team Killian? Even the name sounds better after watching the Killian from this show in action. Oh, man... we're doomed! Sexy is not enough to talk about him!
For those who haven't seen the show, you should give it a try. And for those who haven't read the series, here's what all this is about:
Release Date: June 21st 2011
From the author of the highly addictive and bestselling Blue Bloods series, with almost 3 million copies sold, comes a new novel, Melissa de la Cruz's first for adults, featuring a family of formidable and beguiling witches.
The three Beauchamp women--Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid--live in North Hampton, out on the tip of Long Island. Their beautiful, mist-shrouded town seems almost stuck in time, and all three women lead seemingly quiet, uneventful existences. But they are harboring a mighty secret--they are powerful witches banned from using their magic. Joanna can resurrect people from the dead and heal the most serious of injuries. Ingrid, her bookish daughter, has the ability to predict the future and weave knots that can solve anything from infertility to infidelity. And finally, there's Freya, the wild child, who has a charm or a potion that can cure most any heartache.
For centuries, all three women have been forced to suppress their abilities. But then Freya, who is about to get married to the wealthy and mysterious Bran Gardiner, finds that her increasingly complicated romantic life makes it more difficult than ever to hide her secret. Soon Ingrid and Joanna confront similar dilemmas, and the Beauchamp women realize they can no longer conceal their true selves. They unearth their wands from the attic, dust off their broomsticks, and begin casting spells on the townspeople. It all seems like a bit of good-natured, innocent magic, but then mysterious, violent attacks begin to plague the town. When a young girl disappears over the Fourth of July weekend, they realize it's time to uncover who and what dark forces are working against them.
With a brand-new cast of characters, a fascinating and fresh world to discover, and a few surprise appearances from some of the Blue Blood fan favorites, this is a page-turning, deliciously fun, magical summer read fraught with love affairs, witchcraft, and an unforgettable battle between good and evil.

What do you think Book Addicts? Are you willing to give this series a try? Have you read the books?
I don't know If this show will be a success, or not, but I totally like it! And I'm dying to see what happens next and see Killian and Freya together, because girl, things are not always black or white, and the "good" boy ends up being the "bad" boy and the other way around. I would totally choose Killian, that's why we are team Killian.
