Have you ever finished a book and said “Man, I wish I could ________ like that?” Bookish Bucket List is a semi-regular feature for the things I’ve put on my bucket list and the books that made me do so.
Title: Wildefire (Wildefire #1)
Author: Karsten Knight
Summary: [from GoodReads]
Every flame begins with a spark.
Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her.
But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own.
With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time…
And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.
Bucket List Entry: Attend boarding school
Why: (A more accurate title for this feature might be “Every boarding school book. EVER.”) Is it just me or does boarding school sound like epic amounts of fun? Not that I had a terrible time of it in high school, but I wasn’t the most social student ever. Most nights I went home, did homework and practiced flute. Being right there where things were happening might have convinced me to get out more – at the very least I might have spent more time with my friends!
Alas, I am now too old to ever make this one come true. I’ll just have to pretend!
