Wishlist Wednesday [#23]

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted @ Pen to Paper where we get to feature a book that’s been on our wishlist for a long time that we want to buy/read! I have a hugely extensive list that I keep updated over on The Book Depository so I’m never short of books that I’m wishing on.

Where do I make my lists? First and foremost I use my “sound good” shelf on Goodreads where I basically keep track of all the books I’ve encountered that tickle my fancy. BUT, The Book Depository has my most concise list of all the books that I so dearly want to throw my money at and look at one my shelf.

 This week I’m wishing on . . .

Firelight by Sophie Jordan


Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy (dragons)
Author: Sophie Jordan
Published: September 2010
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 323 {hardcover}

A hidden truth. 
Mortal enemies. 
Doomed love. 
Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki, a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form. 
Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will’s dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away;if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She’ll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.
Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.

Well, I’m not going to lie, the main reason (and possibly only reason) that I want to read this is because it involves dragons. I love the idea that she’s a dragon in hiding because she has the ability to take human form. In fact, just about everything in this plot sounds fabulous and I’d love to grab a copy and read it – one day soon, hopefully!

    1. I know right?! I really hope it’s as awesome as it sounds. It was totally the whole reversed situation that really hooked me. Can things get anymore exciting than dragons in hiding? I don’t think so.
