Wishlist Wednesday #3
Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop hosted by Pen to Paper where bloggers post about one book that has been on our wishlist, that we can’t wait to get onto our wonderful “read” shelves.
I just spent a lot of time cleaning up and organising my Goodreads to-read shelf so I felt this was a great blog hop to participate in. My goal – to keep my to-read shelf under 150 books at all times!
Current tally: 95 books
I’ve seen so many freaky things since I started attending Mythos Academy last fall. I know I’m supposed to be a fearless warrior, but most of the time, I feel like I’m just waiting for the next Bad, Bad Thing to happen. Like someone trying to kill me—again.
Everyone at Mythos Academy knows me as Gwen Frost, the Gypsy girl who uses her psychometry magic to find lost objects—and who just may be dating Logan Quinn, the hottest guy in school. But I’m also the girl the Reapers of Chaos want dead in the worst way. The Reapers are the baddest of the bad, the people who murdered my mom. So why do they have it in for me?
It turns out my mom hid a powerful artifact called the Helheim Dagger before she died. Now, the Reapers will do anything to get it back. They think I know where the dagger is hidden, but this is one thing I can’t use my magic to find. All I do know is that the Reapers are coming for me—and I’m in for the fight of my life.]
I picked up the first Mythos Academy book on a whim at the beginning of the year and loved it so much that I hunted down the sequel at 3am on Amazon.com and bought it immediately so I could just keep on going.
I really enjoy Gwen as a character and I think Logan sounds awesome. Infact I just really enjoy the entire world Jennifer Estep created it’s so much fun! Here is a blurb about the series and world for those who haven’t read them:
The Mythos Academy books focus on Gwen Frost, a 17-year-old Gypsy girl who has the gift of psychometry, or the ability to know an object’s history just by touching it. Gwen’s magic lets her see everyone who has ever touched or used an object as well as feel their emotions — the good, the bad, and the ugly.
After a serious freak-out with her magic, Gwen finds herself shipped off to Mythos Academy, a school for the descendents of ancient warriors like Spartans, Valkyries, and more. The academy is located in the fictional suburb of Cypress Mountain, North Carolina, and the kids there are training how to use their magic and various skills to fight Reapers of Chaos. The Reapers are some seriously bad guys who want to free the evil god Loki from his mystical prison so Loki can take over the world and enslave everyone.
Gwen doesn’t think that she belongs at the academy or that she’s any kind of warrior, but she’s wrong — and she’s a lot stronger than she realizes.
