Wishlist Wednesday [#38]

After missing this post last week I’m excited to finally talk about this book this week. I’ve been so busy lately mostly because NaNoWriMo is making me want to procrastinate everything including writing my novel. It’s a tricky situation. I’m at 25,000 words at the moment and know exactly where I want to go with it . . . but I’m supposed to be 35,000 words. Oops. How’s everyone else’s NaNo going?

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 . . .

The Last Changeling

by Chelsea Pitcher

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy [Paranormal – Fairies]
Author: Chelsea Pitcher 
Published: November 2014
Publisher: Flux
Pages: 360 {paperback}

A Kingdom at War . . .
Elora, the young princess of the Dark Faeries, plans to overthrow her tyrannical mother, the Dark Queen, and bring equality to faeriekind. All she has to do is convince her mother’s loathed enemy, the Bright Queen, to join her cause. But the Bright Queen demands an offering first: a human boy who is a “young leader of men.” 
A Dark Princess In Disguise . . .
To steal a mortal, Elora must become a mortal—at least, by all appearances. And infiltrating a high school is surprisingly easy. When Elora meets Taylor, the seventeen-year-old who’s plotting to overthrow a ruthless bully, she thinks she’s found her offering . . . until she starts to fall in love.

I don’t think I can express enough how much I love the cover for this book. Aside from that, however, I’m all over anything that promises faeries. Ever since Melissa Marr’s Wickedly Lovely series and Julie Kagawa’s The Iron Fey series I’ve been hooked on faeries in books. I just think that the premise of this book, with the faeriekind being at odds with itself, the tyrannical character that needs to be overthrown, the human who gets tangled up in the mess and the romance that’s sure to happen, SOUNDS AMAZING. So yes, please come into my hands, sweet book.
