On My Wishlist (3)

So I am incredibly obsessed with Goodreads and I will surf the books on Goodreads for hours and I have found some really awesome looking books on there of late and I have added a truckload to my wishlist of books to buy so I figured why not share my findings because I am all for showing other people books that look simply amazing.

This week on my wishlist is one that was published last year and it is Hard Magic by Laura Anne Gilman.


Welcome to P.U.P.I.—Private, Unaffiliated, Paranormal Investigations.

A handpicked team trained to solve crimes the regular police can't touch—crimes of magic.


My name's Bonnie Torres. Recent college grad, magic user and severely unemployed. Until I got a call out of nowhere to interview for a job I hadn't applied for. It smelled fishy, but the brutal truth was I needed the work—so off I went.

Two days later I'm a PUPI—me and Nick, Sharon, Nifty and Pietr. Five twentysomethings, thrown into an entirely new career in forensic magic.

The first job we get is a doozy: proving that the deaths of two Talents were murder, not suicide. Worse, there are high-profile people who want us to close up shop and go away. We're sniffing out things they'd rather keep buried.

Looks as if this job is gonna get interesting. The only problem is, we're making it up as we go along….

Why do I want to read this?
Two things, fantasy, and mystery.  I absolutely love my fantasy mixed in with my mystery.  It says paranormal on the cover and everything but it's magic so it's fantasy in my mind.  Anyway, it sounds like it would run along the same vein as the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews and the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, so Hard Magic is definitely one that I am really wanting to read.
