Can't Wait Wednesday (98)


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight highly anticipated books.  It is based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme which used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.










 
FROM GOODREADS: Eighteen-year-old Jemmie Carmichael has grown up surrounded by magic in the quiet town of Hawthorne, New York. In her world, magic users are called "kindled," and Jemmie would count herself among them if only she could cast a simple spell without completely falling apart. It doesn't help that she was also recently snubbed by Crowe, the dangerous and enigmatic leader of the Black Devils kindled motorcycle gang and the unofficial head of their turf.

When the entire kindled community rolls into Hawthorne for an annual festival, a rumor begins spreading that someone is practicing forbidden magic. Then people start to go missing. With threats closing in from every side, no one can be trusted. Jemmie and Crowe will have to put aside their tumultuous history to find their loved ones, and the only thing that might save them is the very flaw that keeps Jemmie from fully harnessing her magic. For all her years of feeling useless, Jemmie may just be the most powerful kindled of all.


WHY I'M WAITING: I saw this on Tammy's blog last week over at Books, Bones & Buffy and it sounded so great I had to add it (that and about 5 more - that past killed me!)  I love the sound of motorcycle gangs and magic.  Plus I am discovering birds on covers are about as intriguing to me as tentacles.  

What can't you wait for this week???

  6. OMG, this is an AWESOME pick!! Just look at that cover! And the plot is just incredibly interesting, too! Such a unique combination -- motorcycle gangs and magic!! Just....WOW. Never heard of anything even remotely like this.

    I also like the fact that wielders of magic are known as "kindled". This must be a nod to Amazon's e-reader, which I think is great! Of course, Amazon picked that name for their e-reader precisely because books kindle the imagination.

    So this is a GREAT pick all around!! I'm adding it to my Goodreads shelves right away!! :)

    Thanks for commenting on my CWW post!! Happy Wednesday!! HUGS for you and the boys!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

  7. "I am discovering birds on covers are about as intriguing to me as tentacles" <-- LOL! This does sound good, and I can honestly say I've never come across a book with a synopsis quite like this one (always a good thing!)

  19. Though I haven't read this, this synopsis kind of reminds me of what I envision Katie McGarry's new 'Thunder Roads' series might be like. Though far as I know, it doesn't include magic. :)

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Barb.

  20. This is the first I've heard of this one, but it sounds really good! There are so few books with motorcycle gangs and I'm curious about the mix of that and magic. On my tbr it goes...
