Wishlist Wednesday #14

First off, as I always, thank you for all your lovely comments on my Top Ten Tuesday post yesterday, I love reading and responding to your comments (that applies to all posts obviously, not just the TTT ones!). Second of all, I have another Wishlist Wednesday for you this week, it’s a book that’s been on my to-read list for a while, but I’ve never actually picked it up, for whatever reason, probably because I’ve never seen it in my local Waterstones and that’s where I do most of my shopping, I usually only buy off Amazon when I’m really excited for a book and can’t wait until my next visit to town to get it! Whilst I would like to read this one, I’ll admit, it’s not high priority on my TBR.

the iron kingSomething has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.

When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.

But she could never have guessed the truth – that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil, no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

I was recommended this one by a friend, who has very similar taste in books to me, so I immediately put it on my TBR. From the synopsis, it sounded great, I love Fae and faeries after reading Throne of Glass, plus it is a fantasy book, so it’s basically right up my alley, as there really isn’t any fantasy I won’t read, especially if it involves magic, I love magic. My initial excitement for this book however was dampened, when I saw that the reviews were quite mixed, it always makes me very hesitant to read a book with very mixed reviews. However, when I first read the synopsis I thought I would like this book and my instincts about books are usually right, so I’m definitely going to give this book a chance. I’d love to have a new faery world to dive into!

I will have another Wishlist Wednesday for you next week, but tomorrow (or later today as it’s after midnight in England), I will have another Thursday Quotables post for you tomorrow.

    I actually own this series and have it on my TBR list as well, but I haven’t started reading it because of my current/future reading commitments and because I have also seen underwhelming reviews. I am a huge fan of all things faerie, so I was disappointed to find out that this one had some less than stellar opinions. I will likely still read it, but it just isn’t a priority pick for me right now.

      Much the same reasons as me then! I have a lot more books that are higher priority than this one. I was disappointed too, it sounded like the perfect read for me, but seeing that it had a number of negative reviews kind of made it slide down the pile.
