This week’s pick: Down with the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn.

Due out: 26th April 2016, from HarperCollins.

Publisher’s Synopsis:

Lennie always thought her uncles’ “important family legacy” was good old-fashioned bootlegging. Then she takes some of her uncles’ moonshine to Michaela Gordon’s annual house party, and finds out just how wrong she was.

At the party, Lennie has everyone make a wish before drinking the shine—it’s tradition. She toasts to wishes for bat wings, for balls of steel, for the party to go on forever. Lennie even makes a wish of her own: to bring back her best friend, Dylan, who was murdered six months ago.

The next morning gives Lennie a whole new understanding of the phrase be careful what you wish for—or in her case, be careful what wishes you grant. Because all those wishes Lennie raised a jar of shine to last night? They came true. Most of them came out bad. And once granted, a wish can’t be unmade. . . .

Why I’m Waiting:

Magic, moonshine and an out of control party = I want to read it right friggin’ now!!!!

I hope everyone’s having a good week. 🙂

  1. Oh, great, great pick. I loved Quinn’s other books, so I can’t wait for this. I hope we’ll both love it. Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my WoW earlier. 🙂
