1. We are halfway through the week (thank goodness!!)
2. It is time for Waiting on Wednesday, which is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine.
Every Wednesday we get to talk about what books we are dying to read and share a little bit about the book. This week I am going to feature Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton. I have actually had my eye on this book for awhile now, but yesterday Tessa revealed the super sweet cover, so I thought I could show it off to all of you plus talk about how excited I am for the book 🙂 You have to admit that cover looks a-maz-ing! I love the colors and the way the flower blurs and turns into images of birds…so cool! Best cover I have seen in a while, I have to say. What’s that old saying though, “don’t judge a book by it’s cover?” Well let’s fix that, here is a summary:
For Nick Pardee and Silla Kennicot, the cemetery is the center of everything.
Nick is a city boy angry at being forced to move back to the nowhere town of Yaleylah, Missouri where he grew up. He can’t help remembering his mom and the blood magic she practiced – memories he’s tried for five years to escape. Silla, though, doesn’t want to forget; her parents’ apparent murder-suicide left her numb and needing answers. When a book of magic spells in her dad’s handwriting appears on her doorstep, she sees her chance to unravel the mystery of their deaths.
Together they plunge into the world of dark magic, but when a hundred-year-old blood witch comes hunting for the bones of Silla’s parents and the spell book, Nick and Silla will have to let go of everything they believe about who they are, the nature of life and death, and the deadly secrets that hide in blood.
