Random Quote of the Day: “Words calculated to catch everyone may catch no one.” – Adlai E. Stevenson Jr.
Hello sunshines! 🔆 It is almost the end of the week and I am fairly excited for this upcoming three-day weekend! To brighten your week, I am sharing another Captivating Cover! Captivating Covers is a meme created by me — @JBelkBooks. Every week or so, I share a cover of a novel that I find to be Captivating. It doesn’t have to be one you’ve read, just one that you enjoy! You can add your own twist to it, but I like to include the book synopsis & book details. So, I created this meme to share my findings with you all!
Title: Wicked Like A Wildfire

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Wicked Like A Wildfire by Lana Popovic
“All the women in Iris and Malina’s family are born with a gleam—a unique way of manipulating beauty through magic. Seventeen-year-old Iris sees flowers as fractals and turns her kaleidoscope visions into glasswork, her twin sister Malina interprets moods as music, and their cold, distant mother Jasmina bakes scenery into decadent treats at her confectionery in Old Town Cattaro, Montenegro.
Jasmina forbids Iris and Malina to share their gleams with anyone, and above all, she forbids them to fall in love—being discovered could shatter the quiet lives they’ve built in their tucked-away, seaside town. But Iris and Malina are tired of abiding by their mother’s rules and rebel in secret whenever they can.
Yet when a mysterious, white-haired woman attacks their mother and leaves her hovering between life and death, the sisters unearth an ancient curse that haunts their line—a wicked bargain that masquerades as a blessing, and binds the twins’ fates—and hearts—to a force larger than life. To save each other, they must untangle a thousand years of lies and reveal their own hurtful secrets. But even the deepest sacrifice might not be enough.
Wicked Like a Wildfire is the first book in a sumptuous, bewitching duology about the power of love, death, magic, and the many faces of beauty.”
So what do you think?? I’m not a huge Fantasy fan, but I DID add this one to my TBR (so that has to mean SOMETHING, doesn’t it?!)! And if I don’t end up enjoying the book, at least I got a great cover to store on my shelves! 😉
Thanks for reading & I’ll see you next time…
