| Wishlist Wednesday | Debut Novels 2017 I didn’t end up buying then but still want to now – PART 3

Last week you got to read the first 2 WW editions of Debut Novels from 2017 I’d still want to buy and today it’s time to show you part 3.

Are you ready to see which books are on my Wishlist aside from the 12 books I already showed you last week? Read on…

♥ Garden of Thorns by Amber Mitchell 

 At first, it was the cover that drew me in because lets be honest: it’s just gorgeous I think! It made me curious about the synopsis of the book and it sounded soooo amazing! And I kind of forgotten a bit about this book until I was doing research for this article and now I’ve read this synopsis again, I’m like: NEED.THIS.BOOK.NOW.PLEASE. So it’s definitely going on the top of my to-buy list. 

***

After seven grueling years of captivity in the Garden—a burlesque troupe of slave girls—sixteen-year-old Rose finds an opportunity to escape during a performance for the emperor. But the hostage she randomly chose from the crowd to aid her isn’t one of the emperor’s men—not anymore. He’s the former heir to the throne, who is now leading a rebellion against it.

Rayce is a wanted man and dangerously charismatic, the worst person for Rose to get involved with, no matter what his smile promises. But he assumes Rose’s attempt to take him hostage is part of a plot to crush the rebellion, so he takes her as his hostage. Now Rose must prove where her loyalties lie, and she offers Rayce a deal—if he helps her rescue the other girls, she’ll tell him all the Garden’s secrets.

Except the one secret she’s kept for seven years that she’ll take to her grave if she must.

♥ It started with goodbye by Christina June 

This sounds like a beautiful contemporary romance which I love reading from time to time. Add to it some paranormal elements and I’m Definitely intrigued haha. This is a book I’m curious about but that isn’t very high on my to buy list so instead of buying a printed edition I may decide to buy the e-book. That way, I’m bound to buy it sooner.

Sixteen-year-old Tatum Elsea is bracing for the worst summer of her life. After being falsely accused of a crime, she’s stuck under stepmother-imposed house arrest and her BFF’s gone ghost. Tatum fills her newfound free time with community service by day and working at her covert graphic design business at night (which includes trading emails with a cute cello-playing client). When Tatum discovers she’s not the only one in the house keeping secrets, she finds she has the chance to make amends with her family and friends. Equipped with a new perspective, and assisted by her feisty step-abuela-slash-fairy-godmother, Tatum is ready to start fresh and maybe even get her happy ending along the way.

♥ Shimmer and Burn by Mary Taranta 

I remember very well, coming across this book a couple of months before it’s release and the first reviews were coming in of this book. I saw a lot of positiveness being thrown towards this release and I have to say that this synopsis sounds really awesome. I’m still definitely planning on buying the book somewhere this year.

To save her sister’s life, Faris must smuggle magic into a plague-ridden neighboring kingdom in this exciting and dangerous start to a brand-new fantasy duology.

Faris grew up fighting to survive in the slums of Brindaigel while caring for her sister, Cadence. But when Cadence is caught trying to flee the kingdom and is sold into slavery, Faris reluctantly agrees to a lucrative scheme to buy her back, inadvertently binding herself to the power-hungry Princess Bryn, who wants to steal her father’s throne.

Now Faris must smuggle stolen magic into neighboring Avinea to incite its prince to alliance—magic that addicts in the war-torn country can sense in her blood and can steal with a touch. She and Bryn turn to a handsome traveling magician, North, who offers protection from Avinea’s many dangers, but he cannot save Faris from Bryn’s cruelty as she leverages Cadence’s freedom to force Faris to do anything—or kill anyone—she asks. Yet Faris is as fierce as Bryn, and even as she finds herself falling for North, she develops schemes of her own.

With the fate of kingdoms at stake, Faris, Bryn, and North maneuver through a dangerous game of magical and political machinations, where lives can be destroyed—or saved—with only a touch.

♥ 27 Hours by Tristina Wright 

Again; look at the cover, damn. If I’d buy this book just because of the cover it’d be totally justified, right? haha. But no, it’s not the cover that’s making me want to buy it but the story itself that sounds great. Even though I’m not persé into GLBT books – And no I’m not saying this because I’m a racist or such because nothing against bi-or homosexuals but I find it often not coming across right in a book especially nowadays when authors feel like they’re being pushed to write about it. So I just don’t often read them – I’m really really intrigued to see how these romantic interests will unfold.

Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure.
Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.

But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.

Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend.
Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother’s shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon’s darkest secret.

They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.

During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.

27 Hours is a sweeping, thrilling story featuring a stellar cast of queer teenagers battling to save their homes and possibly every human on Sahara as the clock ticks down to zero.

♥ the Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli 

One of the most hyped books in the second half of 2017 I think and I’m definitely excited about this book. I don’t know why on earth I haven’t bought it yet but it is what it is right? haha. I’m really bummed out that I didn’t get the Nov. fairyloot in which the Silver cover edition exclusively made for FL, was inside the box but well that’s just the way it is. I do love the gold edition as well, though and I’m planning on buying it soon because I think this is one of those books I’m really going to regret not having read sooner haha.

In the beginning, there was the Namsara: the child of sky and spirit, who carried love and laughter wherever he went. But where there is light, there must be darkness—and so there was also the Iskari. The child of blood and moonlight. The destroyer. The death-bringer.

These are the legends that Asha, daughter of the king of Firgaard, has grown up learning in hushed whispers, drawn to the forbidden figures of the past. But it isn’t until she becomes the fiercest, most feared dragon slayer in the land that she takes on the role of the next Iskari—a lonely destiny that leaves her feeling more like a weapon than a girl.

Asha conquers each dragon and brings its head to the king, but no kill can free her from the shackles that await at home: her betrothal to the cruel commandant, a man who holds the truth about her nature in his palm. When she’s offered the chance to gain her freedom in exchange for the life of the most powerful dragon in Firgaard, she finds that there may be more truth to the ancient stories than she ever could have expected. With the help of a secret friend—a slave boy from her betrothed’s household—Asha must shed the layers of her Iskari bondage and open her heart to love, light, and a truth that has been kept from her.

♥ this Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada 

A book I’ve been hearing great things about already and I’ve added it to my wishlist back in 2017, a couple of months before it’s release but this is once again a book I just didn’t get around to buy yet. It is on my 2018 to buy list, but it’s not on top of that list, so we’ll see when I get around to buy it haha. Maybe I’ll buy it as e-book, but then again; I did see a picture of a friend of mine’s printed edition and it looked AWESOME.

***

Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius.

That’s no surprise, since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own.

When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race.

Now Cat must decide who she can trust: The soldier with secrets of his own? The father who made her promise to hide from Cartaxus at all costs? In a world where nature itself can be rewritten, how much can she even trust herself?

So, that was part 3 of this WW edition and I’m really excited about all 6 books in this article as well.

♥ Love to hear if you’ve read any of them and what you thought of them then?
