Waiting On Wednesday #18


Welcome to this weeks Waiting On Wednesday! This is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.

What am I waiting on this week? Down With the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn


There's a reason they say "be careful what you wish for." Just ask the girl who wished to be thinner and ended up smaller than Thumbelina, or the boy who asked for "balls of steel" and got them-literally. And never wish for your party to go on forever. Not unless you want your guests to be struck down by debilitating pain if they try to leave.

These are things Lennie only learns when it's too late-after she brings some of her uncles' moonshine to a party and toasts to dozens of wishes, including a big wish of her own: to bring back her best friend, Dylan, who was abducted and murdered six months ago.

Lennie didn't mean to cause so much chaos. She always thought her uncles' moonshine toast was just a tradition. And when they talked about carrying on their "important family legacy," she thought they meant good old-fashioned bootlegging.

As it turns out, they meant granting wishes. And Lennie has just granted more in one night than her uncles would grant in a year.

Now she has to find a way to undo the damage. But once granted, a wish can't be unmade...


Release Date: April 26, 2016

I saw Down With the Shine featured on someone's WOW last week and the blurb just called to me. YA Fantasy isn't something that I usually read but come on... How could I possibly pass this one up?!

What are you waiting on this week?
