~Can't Wait Wednesday: Society of Wishes (Wish Quartet #1)~


                Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Wishful Endings.  Waiting on Wednesday has been don for some time so I am switching it up for now!  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:


Society if Wishes (Wish Quartet #1) by Elise Kova
Out: 1/29

From Goodreads:
                First book in the Wish Quartet, a new-adult, urban, fantasy series set in a near-future alternate reality.

                BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.

                Josephina Espinosa makes her living as a hacker-for-hire in the Lone Star Republic, a remmant of the fractured U.S.A.  That is, until the day she and her best friend are gunned down in a government raid.

                With her dying breath, Jo uses magical lore passed down from her grandmother to summon a wish-granter.  Her wish?  To save her friend’s life.  Except wishes have costs, and for Jo, the price is that erasure of her entire mortal existence.

                Now, as the most recent addition to the mysterious Society of Wishes, Jo must form a new “life” alongside the seven other members, one of which being her savior himself.  Living as an occupant of the Society lavish mansion should be quite the perk, but while it is furnished with everything its inhabitants could possibly need, it lacks one thing—freedom.

                Her otherworldly identity crisis takes a backseat, however, when Jo learns that the friend she sacrificed everything for is headed down the same path to ruin.  Jumping in head-first, Jo uses her newfound magical abilities to protect him, only to realize that the ripples of her actions have far-reaching consequences.  When the Society’s aloof leader Snow decides to give her a taste of his own ancient magic, Jo discovers that there are threads woven into the tapestry of her new reality that reach far beyond the wishes she is now required to grant.  Ones that, if tugged on, could mean the unraveling of the world itself.



Why I’m Waiting:
                This author is an auto-buy for me so that is enough of a reason for me.  That said the summary sounds like something I will love.  So there we go! 

                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your WoW as well so I can check it out.  Also I have a giveaway open now for a SIGNED copy of Warcross by Marie Lu here.
