On My Wishlist (1)






"On My Wishlist" is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chic City!  This post allows us to share the books that we want, but haven't gotten yet.  My list will include books that are available now and books that haven't been released yet.  I will post 3 to 5 books weekly from my HUGE wishlist!!!  If you want to participate in this weekly meme click on the link to Book Chic City above.  She has Mr. Linky available so we can check out everyone's wishlist!  Here are a few books that I REALLY WANT!



Captivate (Need, #2)Captivate by Carrie Jones **Spoiler Alert!** If you haven't read Need then you may want to skip reading the summary!


Summary from Goodreads:

"Zara and her friends knew they hadn't solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king's needs grow deeper every day he's stuck in captivity, while his control over his people gets weaker. It's made him vulnerable. And now there's a new king in town.

A turf war is imminent, since the new pixie king, Astley, is moving in quickly. Nick nearly killed him in the woods on day one, but Zara came to his rescue. Astley swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he's one of the good guys. Nick isn't buying it, though Zara isn't as sure -- despite herself, she wants to trust the new king. But it's a lot more than her relationship with Nick that is at stake. It's her life -- and his."



Radiant Shadows (Wicked Lovely, #4)
 Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr
(Wicked Lovely #4) 

Summary from Goodreads:

"Hunger for nourishment.

Hunger for touch.

Hunger to belong.

Half-human and half-faery, Ani is driven by her hungers.
Those same appetites also attract powerful enemies and uncertain allies, including Devlin. He was created as an assassin and is brother to the faeries’ coolly logical High Queen and to her chaotic twin, the embodiment of War. Devlin wants to keep Ani safe from his sisters, knowing that if he fails, he will be the instrument of Ani’s death.
      Ani isn’t one to be guarded while others fight battles for her, though. She has the courage to protect herself and the ability to alter Devlin’s plans—and his life. The two are drawn together, each with reason to fear the other and to fear for one another. But as they grow closer, a larger threat imperils the whole of Faerie. Will saving the faery realm mean losing each other?
      Alluring romance, heart-stopping danger, and sinister intrigue combine in Melissa Marr’s next volume of MelissaMarr’s New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series."


Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #2) 
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
(Wolves of Mercy Falls #2)

Summary from Goodreads:

"In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other.  Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past . . . and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack.  And Isabelle, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.

At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love -- the light and the dark, the warm and the cold -- in a way you will never forget."




** These are just a few of the books I REALLY want!  Unfortunately, all of these titles will not be released until 2010! **

  3. Captivate was INCREDIBLE! It was so much more than I thought it could be and shocking! Eeek! So so good! I am so lucky to have gotten one! My full review isn't up yet though...

    I want Linger too! I LOVED Shiver. As a Twilight fan, it shocked my friends when I said I think I like Sam better than Edward! Such a complex character that is so real and swoon worthy!

    I have yet to read Wicked Lovely, but I know I need to soon!
