On My Wishlist is a weekly meme started by Book Chick City and is now hosted by Workaday Reads. Every week I’ll introduce you to a book that’s on my extensive wishlist. Sometimes it’s a new book, but quite often it’s an older book. Let me know if you’ve read it, and what you think. Please also join in and link up your On My Wishlist post each week.
The Whispers of the Sprite (The Whispers #1) by Joanna Mazurkiewicz
When Ania moves from London to Swansea city in Wales she is hoping that her life will get a bit more exciting, after all she is running away from her controlling mother to taste more freedom and feel more independent. Everything seems to be going the way she wanted until she almost dies while taking a quiet walk around the beach in the late evening.
When she opens her eyes, nothing seems the same…
She starts seeing people that no one else is able to notice. An enchanting looking man keeps following her and Ania’s life seems to getting more exciting than she ever wished for.
After the attack something changes inside her, she has been blessed with the new frightening gift of seeing and hearing sprites all around her… the magical creatures that only existed in folklore, myths and legends of Britain.
Gabriel is attractive and handsome but no … he is not a vampire. He keeps coming back and Ania feels an instant connection between them but this might get her into more trouble. Supernatural romance is not on her mind right now.
Because he is forbidden to even touch her … the line between the death and love has never been so thin and the sprites won’t stop whispering until … she will choose to love or abandon Gabriel.
I added this book to my wishlist based on the cover alone. It is so pretty. Whoever designed it did an amazing job. The whole 4 book series has similar covers, and they are all so pretty.
After I added the book to my wishlist, then I read the summary, and I was even more hooked. “Magical creatures that only existed in folklore, myths and legends of Britain”? Sounds awesome.
There aren’t many reviews on Goodreads, but the majority seem to be 3 stars or above. Only one of my friends has a rating and review, and it was 5 stars, which is always a bonus to see. The reviews I read all seemed to mention that the book was better than the summary and it is full of mystery and romance. All positive things. There was a mention of a cliffhanger ending, which I’m not a fan of, but knowing that all 4 books are available makes that a little easier to handle.
