Wednesday Wishes

Seems like I say this a lot, but it feels like ages since I’ve done a WW post!!

If you haven’t noticed BW is back to regular posting! So look forward to more activity and hopefully it will be smooth sailing from here on out. I’ve missed my baby! Especially, I’ve missed you guys.

Though my internet is out, so if I don’t respond swiftly, it’s because I’m not smooching off of someone!

The Assassin’s Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke

Genre: YA Fantasy
Series: Assassin’s Curse, Book 1

Ananna of the Tanarau abandons ship when her parents try to marry her off to an allying pirate clan: she wants to captain her own boat, not serve as second-in-command to her handsome yet clueless fiancé. But her escape has dire consequences when she learns the scorned clan has sent an assassin after her.

And when the assassin, Naji, finally catches up with her, things get even worse. Ananna inadvertently triggers a nasty curse — with a life-altering result. Now Ananna and Naji are forced to become uneasy allies as they work together to break the curse and return their lives back to normal. Or at least as normal as the lives of a pirate and an assassin can be.(

Pirates, assassins, a runaway bride! Hello! Why would I not want to read this book?

Avalon by Lana Davison 

AvalonGet it: Amazon | Goodreads
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Holly was forced to leave Avalon at the tender age of twelve, simply because she refused a union with her chosen one. She believes love ruins everything. Holly is sent to earth to live with her guardian family and lives on earth like any normal teenage girl, but she is different, she has a gift. In her senior school year, Holly attends boarding school in England and is introduced to a new student, Leo. She cannot understand why she is so drawn to his dark confident nature. His touch awakens a part of Holly she believed was dormant forever. All is not what it seems. What secret is Leo hiding? And is there more to Leo’s presence in her life?

This one doesn’t come out until November, but I’m very excited about it. The author has promised me a copy. *wink-wink*

The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson 

The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1)Get it: Amazon | Goodreads
Genre: YA Fantasy
Series: Fire and Thorns, Book 1

Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.

Elisa is the chosen one.

But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can't see how she ever will.
Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.

And he's not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people's savior. And he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.

Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.
Most of the chosen do.(

This is a title that I just found out about! It sounds amazing and the reviews sound wonderful. I love YA fantasy and this one sounds so much more promising then The Glass Throne.
