Synopsis:


There are whispers of a ghost in the slaughterhouse where sixteen-year-old Wen assists her father in his medical clinic—a ghost who grants wishes to those who need them most. When one of the Noor, men hired as cheap factory labor, humiliates Wen, she makes an impulsive wish of her own, and the Ghost grants it. Brutally.

Guilt-ridden, Wen befriends the Noor, including their outspoken leader, a young man named Melik. At the same time, she is lured by the mystery of the Ghost and learns he has been watching her … for a very long time.
 
As deadly accidents fuel tensions within the factory, Wen must confront her growing feelings for Melik, who is enraged at the sadistic factory bosses and the prejudice faced by his people at the hand of Wen’s, and her need to appease the Ghost, who is determined to protect her against any threat—real or imagined. She must decide whom she can trust, because as her heart is torn, the factory is exploding around her … and she might go down with it.

Of Metal and Wishes has been on my TBR shelf since April, and I remember thinking that August was too far away. NOW IT'S ALMOST HERE!! So why am I so excited for this book? Excuse me, but did you read that synopsis?! This book is going to be one of my favourite reads for 2014. I can feel it.

Another reason (actually the main and first thing that drew me to this book), look at the cover. FINALLY!! Diversity for the win! Come on, admit it. How often do you see diverse book covers? I have already given this 5 stars in my mind (not one of those people that rates a book on GR before it's released).


Is Of Metal and Wishes on your TBR list? If not, is it one that might make it there one day? Please feel free to leave me links below to your WoW!


Thanks for stopping by!

  12. That cover is freaking gorgeous! I kind of want to own it just for that. Unfortunately I'm really not a ghost story fan so I probably won't be reading this one. I hope it's as amazing as the cover!!
