    1. In some ways, I feel like I m being generous I m upping my rating to two stars, and yet this book was so painfully slow and boring I ve mostly been reading it during the day whilst on vacation so I m neither tired nor grumpy, but I could feel my eyes trying to close as they moved through the pages of snoozeworthy text It just goes to show that having beautiful, poetic writing and an exciting setting in Montenegro cannot make up for a plot that takes forever to go anywhere.On the other hand, I fe [...]

    2.

    5. WrensReads Review If you love the cover, you ll love the book Never judge a book by its cover Especially when the cover is as beautiful as that with a perfect add on of a title I was just bored There was a lot of fluffy and beautiful descriptions but not enough content for me And the characters didn t really seem to have actual relations You know like you can call someone your best friend but are you actually best friends You can say that you hate someone so much you would push them in front of [...]

    6. I m really, honestly tired of and terribly sorry for having to say this, especially when it s a book that offers such potential for diversity I m talking about, but there s just no other way of putting it good concept, poor execution Wicked Like a Wildfire is set in Cattaro, Montenegro, which is maybe its strongest asset and the thing about it that appealed to me the most In the course of the book, the characters visit some characteristic places of the area for plot related reasons e.g Our Lady [...]

    7. I received an advance copy of this book for free Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss This was a YA paranormal fantasy story about two sisters with special gifts.I liked Iris and Malina, and I liked how much they supported each other, even when their mother seemed to favour Malina.The storyline in this was about the two girls having magical gifts that their mother had warned them to keep hidden, Iris ability to make fractal patterns out of flowers, and Malina s ability to sing emotions to peopl [...]

    8. Oh my goodness That synopsis actually made my heart pound.All the women in Iris and Malina s family are born with a gleam a unique way of manipulating beauty through magic.I know you re not supposed to judge a book by its cover but I m judging so hard right now A bewitching duology about the power of love, death, magic, and the many faces of beauty Um, give it to me now, please.To save each other, they must untangle a thousand years of lies and reveal their own hurtful secrets dying

    9. Your beauty is a force, you know, a power all its own It can be both sword and shield for you, and win you anything you want I love magical realism Having read two really fantastic ones in the past month has reignited by love for this magically captivating genre Wicked Like a Wildfire is an enchanting story of beauty, power, family, and love Iris and Malina s family has a history of manipulating or gleaming beauty into magical works of art But their mother is adamant that they keep their abiliti [...]

    10. This book is a dazzling visual feast and a graphic or CGI artist s dream project I could give this book 5 stars solely on that Or for the simply stunning writing that graces practically every page from the breathtaking descriptions of Montenegro that make me want to go there RIGHT NOW to the vivid visceral portrayal of her protagonist s passionate inner life as well as the artful rendering of the book s unique gleam magic SPOILER ALERT But I am also giving this book 5 stars for the use of a gian [...]

    11. I am in LOVE with this book I could not get enough of the stunning prose Popovic weaves around her characters, and scenery, like a subtle perfume, coloring every moment on the page with richness and beauty As if that s not enough, the plot is incredibly engrossing and the characters all burst off the page, fully formed, flawed, and fascinating At this point, I m just salivating for book two A must read from 2017.

    12. 2 5I really don t know where to start with this.First things first You have to like the writing style, otherwise this book will only turn out super boring and confusing.And I m definitely in the very confused category I really didn t like the style used Everything is described so slowly and with smells and scents.At the beginning it sounded very interesting but after a while it started to bore me to sleep.I wanted a very cool magical mystery book but it s super slow and the mystery is too.The ma [...]

    13. Nothing was ever simple There was no such thing as the one and only truth, and that too was a freedom in itself WTF was that ending So As much as I enjoyed reading Wicked Like a Wildfire, I have to say that I found the beginning tough to read because of the intense mother daughter relationship to the point where they both slut shamed each other Um not entirely okay reading that Moreover, it read very much like a debut and I wasn t too fond of the overt descriptive writing i.e Above us the pine b [...]

    14. I honestly expected to love this book, fantasy is my favourite genre and I love magic so it seemed right up my street and then you throw in that gorgeous cover and of course I m going to pick up a copy.Unfortunately it just didn t work for me though There s no denying that Lana Popovi s writing is beautiful but sometimes you can have too much of a good thing There are pages upon pages of description, great when she s describing the Montenegro setting and the beautiful mountains, but it starts to [...]

    15. Beautiful brilliant writing, with a fairytale feel to it It was a sensory explosion and no detail was left out What a wild ride I couldn t get enough of it Highly recommend

    16. This is a case of where beautiful writing and an exotic setting cannot save a plot that refuses to move I love the world building and the build up, but when little is revealed in the first half of the book, it gives the reader very little desire to continue on.Where s the pull, the excitement I m disappointed.

    17. I was lucky enough to read an early copy which in a way turned out to be somewhat unlucky, as I have longer to wait for the sequel WLAW is a beautifully executed novel Lana s writing is just so, so gorgeous with the perfect blend of mystery, romance, adventure and magic Prepare to be utterly seduced.

    18. This book sounds like it was written by a very hungry person who walks around sniffing too many things Idk, idk.

    19. Reviewing books by way of stars often feels so lazy, but I m not sure how else to do it here.See, for the entire first half, this was sitting at a solid 4 for me, with a few moments here and there that made me either wince or swoon And then a whole bunch of crazy happens, where the main explanation seems to always be but beauty , and there s no way it s anywhere near a 4 star book after that, surely Except the last few pages and the ending maybe shifted it back up a little in my good graces So i [...]

    20. This book was absolutely stunning Every single description was beautifully done From the scents, to tastes, and to the imaginary A treat to any candle maker out there.

    21. It s hard to express exactly why I liked this novel, even though I know for sure that I did It s wonderfully whimsical, crammed to the brim with odd, dark, beautiful magic, a potent mix of lore and culture While it does start off fairly slow, I think it builds up into something that I just couldn t look away from, and I m looking forward to reading the next one.

    22. I certainly did enjoy this book, but I can t bring myself to give it any higher than three stars I had a good time, the story was entertaining, the magic was unique but at no point was I wowed Nothing blew me away, and overall I would just say it was good The main characters were lovely, I did grow to care for them, and I can imagine I ll probably pick up the sequel eventually when it s out, but I m in no immediate hurry.

    23. WICKED LIKE A WILDFIRE is a beautifully written and enchanting debut Lana Popovi s writing is full of gorgeous imagery and prose Several times while I was reading this story, I found myself going back and re reading paragraphs and even full pages just because the execution was so lovely.The magic system in this story is captivating I loved how it manifested itself differently in Iris, Malina, and their mother, and it allowed for some truly spell biding scenes that I won t soon forget.I adored Ir [...]

    24. Wicked Like a Wildfire is a fantasy book set in modern Cattaro Montenegro It follows two sisters with an unusual magical ability called gleam a gift that allows them to manipulate beauty Iris can see flowers as fractals, while Malina can sing her emotions When their mother Jasmina is murdered by someone who has magical abilities similar to their own, Iris and Malina discover that they have been told lies since they were born.We follow the PoV of only one sister, Iris, and she was the one I liked [...]
