Wishlist Wednesday [#25]

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 . . .

Unaware she’s been bound from using magic, Frey leads a small, miserable life in the village where she’s sent after the death of her mother. But a tiny spark starts a fury of changes and she finds herself running from everything she’s ever known. 
Hunted by council for practicing dark magic, she is certain she’s been wrongfully accused. She flees, and is forced to rely on strangers for protection. But the farther she strays from home, the more her magic and forgotten memories return and she begins to suspect all is not as it seems.

I really do love my magic in books so from the get-go this has been a book I’ve been very interested in. I’d wished for ages that someone would give this poor book a cover redo, and then, recently, THEY DID. I waaay prefer this cover to the old one and it definitely has me excited to pick up the book at some point. The idea of someone’s magic being bound and them not knowing about it is bound to be a good story. I just hope that it’s a real page-turner and that the magic is awesome to behold and good fun to read. Fingers crossed!
