On My Wishlist is: When the Sea is Rising Red by Cat Hellisen
After seventeen-year-old Felicita’s dearest friend Ilven kills herself to escape an arranged marriage, Felicita chooses freedom over privilege. She fakes her own death and leaves her sheltered life as one of Pelimburg’s magical elite behind. Living in the slums, scrubbing dishes for a living, she falls for charismatic Dash while also becoming fascinated with vampire Jannik. Then something shocking washes up on the beach: Ilven’s death has called out of the sea a dangerous wild magic. Felicita must decide whether her loyalties lie with the family she abandoned . . . or with those who would twist this dark power to destroy Pelimburg’s caste system, and the whole city along with it.
OMG, what is not to like about this cover? There is mystery, intrigue and a lovely (possibly) dead girl in frosty water. I’m curious as to how she got there and why. That’s a cocktail party dress so she has an interesting story.
Now to the blurb. It has a vampire in it which is quite shocking to me. I wasn’t expecting that. I’m curious as to what type of powers Felicita has and what was awoken in the sea.

That book sounds so good. I guess I have to add it to my wish list too!
I am always always amazed at how many books you find, most of which I haven’t even heard of! what make you decide to make wish list wednesdays? And how soon before you review your wish list choice?
I usually find them in Amazon. There are a lot of books that I probably won’t be able to read because I don’t own them and neither does the public library but I feel should be showcase so that’s why I do Wishlist Wednesday. Plus, it seem like a great meme to participate in.
Currently, I don’t have any of them but I’m looking for them in the library. Hopefully, the library buys some of the books (or I will at a later point).
