WoW Pick of the Week!



This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those books we are most excited about and anxiously awaiting their release.

I love doing this meme because it is so much fun to see what others think about the books you post and most importantly, to see what others are waiting for. More than once I have found some great books to add to my TBR pile that I had no clue were even coming out because of checking out someone else's WoW. 


This week my pick goes to:




Book Description:

Book Three of The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy
Blood Magick

County Mayo is rich in the traditions of Ireland, legends that Branna O’Dwyer fully embraces in her life and in her work as the proprietor of The Dark Witch shop, which carries soaps, lotions, and candles for tourists, made with Branna’s special touch.

Branna’s strength and selflessness hold together a close circle of friends and family—along with their horses and hawks and her beloved hound. But there’s a single missing link in the chain of her life: love…

She had it once—for a moment—with Finbar Burke, but a shared future is forbidden by history and blood. Which is why Fin has spent his life traveling the world to fill the abyss left in him by Branna, focusing on work rather than passion.

Branna and Fin’s relationship offers them both comfort and torment. And though they succumb to the heat between them, there can be no promises for tomorrow. A storm of shadows threatens everything that their circle holds dear. It will be Fin’s power, loyalty, and heart that will make all the difference in an age-old battle between the bonds that hold their friends together and the evil that has haunted their families for centuries.





So I know it seems crazy that I am waiting on the third book in a trilogy I haven't even started but...I haven't started it because I have been waiting for the last book to release. crazy, I know, but I like to have all of Nora's trilogies before starting them because more often than not, start the next one right afterwards. 

So what are you anxiously awaiting this week to release (hopefully) soon?

  7. I like to wait for all the books in a trilogy to be out as well. It's so much better to read them back to back. :)
    I haven't read a Nora Roberts book in forever. I started to lose interest as I started to get into YA.
    I hope you'll enjoy this when you read it! :)

  16. I've only read one book by Nora Roberts (Sea Swept) and loved it so I told myself I'll read some of her other books as well. There are just so many I can't choose which one to read next. lol This series on the other hand sounds good! I hope you enjoy them once the third one come out :)
