Wishlist Wednesday...

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop, hosted by Pen to Paper, where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.

Oh my, this is such a tough decision! My wishlist grows week by week, it's so hard to narrow it down to just one... so how about one and a half ;) 

Right now, my latest 'gimme now' is... The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney 

"Freak. That's what her classmates call seventeen-year-old Donna Underwood. When she was seven, a horrific fey attack killed her father and drove her mother mad. Donna's own nearly fatal injuries from the assault were fixed by magic—the iron tattoos branding her hands and arms. The child of alchemists, Donna feels cursed by the magical heritage that destroyed her parents and any chance she had for a normal life. The only thing that keeps her sane and grounded is her relationship with her best friend, Navin Sharma.
When the darkest outcasts of Faerie—the vicious wood elves—abduct Navin, Donna finally has to accept her role in the centuries old war between the humans and the fey. Assisted by Xan, a gorgeous half-fey dropout with secrets of his own, Donna races to save her friend—even if it means betraying everything her parents and the alchemist community fought to the death to protect."
Did you read that summary?!?! 
No, really - did you read. that. summary??? 
AND just look at that beautiful cover! I love that they put the girl, Donna, on the cover! 
Faeries... magic... 

I NEED to read this NOW!!! 

It's a series!!! 
The second book to The Iron Witch Series is being released TODAY!!! 

Donna Underwood is in deep trouble. An ancient alchemical order is holding her accountable for destroying the last precious drops of the elixar of life. Never mind the fact that Donna was acting to free her friend, Navin, from the dangerous clutches of the Wood Queen at the time. But what the alchemists have in store is nothing compared to the wrath of the fey. The Wood Queen has been tricked and Donna must pay. Get ready for all hell - quite literally - to break loose...


I need both a.s.a.p!!!  :) 

What book do you NEED to read right NOW??? 


  1. I've seen this at a bookstore but didn't buy it because many negative responds. It's just me though, doesn't mean to convince you =p
    But I agree, it does sound very amazing and I love the cover too! Hope you'll get this series soon ^^

  2. I have The Iron Witch to read in my huge TBR mountain! It's a special edition one with gold pages! :)
    I think I'm reluctant to read it because it's a limited edition and it's so pretty, though :P

    Great post this week!
