Wishlist Wednesday [#26]

And welcome back to Wednesday PART TWO. It’s always terribly exciting having two posts on one day, isn’t it? Indeed. Today is the end of the RYBSAT read-a-thon which means I’ll be shuffling through all my half-achievements to bring you my wrap-up for both that and the #ReadThemAllThon which finished at the end of last week. I’ve so many books to jump into now, namely new releases – so let the fun begin! In the meantime, let’s drool over more books I want to buy but probably definitely shouldn’t.

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 . . .

Fates
by Lanie Bross

GOODREADS

book one in the Fates series

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy (Mythological)
Author: Lanie Bross
Published: February 2014
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Pages: 336 {hardback}

One moment. One foolish desire. One mistake. And Corinthe lost everything.

She fell from her tranquil life in Pyralis Terra and found herself exiled to the human world. Her punishment? To make sure people’s fates unfold according to plan. Now, years later, Corinthe has one last assignment: kill Lucas Kaller. His death will be her ticket home.

But for the first time, Corinthe feels a tingle of doubt. It begins as a lump in her throat, then grows toward her heart, and suddenly she feels like she is falling all over again–this time for a boy she knows she can never have. Because it is written: one of them must live, and one of them must die. In a universe where every moment, every second, every fate has already been decided, where does love fit in?

Firstly, Goodreads has a little blurbed bit that says that this is suitable for fans of Julie Kagawa and Sarah J. Maas amongst others WHICH IMMEDIATELY MAKES ME GO YES.

Secondly, anything remotely linked to aspects of mythology has me interested. The main character is exiled from the human world. Can you hear my heart beating with joy? I really do love the sound of this book though – the character is essentially doing what she does to ensure that peoples fates unfold correctly. I love this concept. The added fun of the forbidden romance that is hopefully sizzling confirms this book’s place on my Wishlist, that’s for sure.

I’ve never seen this book floating around on the blogosphere, however, which makes me sad. Honestly, people, we aren’t reading enough of the books that came out a couple of years ago – there’s a whole bunch of them I’ve yet to tap into that no-one else is kaffufling over. Tsk. What’s wrong with you?
