What Am I Reading on Mondays – Another great week

 

A weekly event hosted by J. Kaye’s Book Blog to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

Books I completed last week are:

Devon Rhodes - Silver & Gold

Lynne Carol - Saddle Up and Ride 02 - Bareback Cowboy

Carol Lynne Saddle up and Ride 03 - Through the Montana Mist

Willa Okati - And Call Me in the Morning.

No Matter what – Erin Nicholas

Puppy Love – Jeff Erno

Too Keen – AKM Miles

 

This is the cover I fell in love with this week…

Griffin Penshine is always making wishes. But when a sinister old woman tricks her into accepting a box of eleven shiny Indian Head pennies from 1897, Griffin soon learns these are no ordinary pennies, but stolen wishes.

This box of labeled pennies comes with a horrible curse: People in possession of the stolen coins are Wish Stealers, who will never have their wishes granted.... In fact, the opposite of what they've wished for will happen. Griffin must find a way to return these stolen wishes and undo the curse if her own wishes are to come true.

But how can Griffin return wishes to strangers who might not even be alive? Her journey leads her to ancient alchemists, Macbeth's witches, and a chance to help people in ways she never imagined, but the temptation of the Wish Stealers' dark and compelling power is growing stronger. Can Griffin reverse the curse in time to save herself and the people she loves?

Tracy Trivas's rich and imaginative début novel introduces a talent as bright and sparkling as Griffin's pennies.

I was attracted by the cover and when I read the blurb -they were opposite of each other and I was hooked...

I have to agree the Wish Stealers looks and sounds great! :) Although, I would never have put this cover down as historical/fantasy - a lovely surprise!

Good reading week!

It's that shade of blue, it draws me like a magnet. It's the same as the one on Immortality is the Suck and another book with a merman on the cover. It's likey it hypnotises me.
