Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, spotlighting releases we (or rather, in this case, Lizzie) are waiting for eagerly.
Title: Wicked Like A Wildfire
Author: Lana Popvic
Coming out in 2017
All the women in Iris and Malina’s family are born with a gleam—a unique way of manipulating beauty through magic. Seventeen-year-old Iris sees flowers as fractals and turns her kaleidoscope visions into glasswork, her twin sister Malina interprets moods as music, and their cold, distant mother Jasmina bakes scenery into decadent treats at her confectionery in Old Town Cattaro, Montenegro.
Jasmina forbids Iris and Malina to share their gleams with anyone, and above all, she forbids them to fall in love—being discovered could shatter the quiet lives they’ve built in their tucked-away, seaside town. But Iris and Malina are tired of abiding by their mother’s rules and rebel in secret whenever they can.
Yet when a mysterious, white-haired woman attacks their mother and leaves her hovering between life and death, the sisters unearth an ancient curse that haunts their line—a wicked bargain that masquerades as a blessing, and binds the twins’ fates—and hearts—to a force larger than life. To save each other, they must untangle a thousand years of lies and reveal their own hurtful secrets. But even the deepest sacrifice might not be enough.
Wicked Like a Wildfire is the first book in a sumptuous, bewitching duology about the power of love, death, magic, and the many faces of beauty
This one sounds so unique! I was sold with the opening lines of the synopsis, kaleidoscope vision? Yes please. I’m getting a tone of Star Touched Queen vibes off this one, and I already feel betwitched! Also, this title had me thinking witches or coven culture will be explored here? I love anything with witches, and especially with Fall fast approaching – I am hunting down future spooky reads!
And now… over to you: what book are you waiting to release? Link me up and I’ll try my best to drop by! 🙂
