"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!
Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus: I am really looking forward to reading this book!  The summary sounds fantastic!

Summary from Goodreads: (Release Date: July 13, 2010 by Egmont USA)

Shadow Hills
"Since her sister’s mysterious death, Persephone “Phe” Archer has been plagued by a series of disturbing dreams. Determined to find out what happened to her sister, Phe enrolls at Devenish Prep in Shadow Hills, Massachusetts—the subject of her sister’s final diary entry.

After stepping on campus, Phe immediately realizes that there’s something different about this place—an unexplained epidemic that decimated the town in the 1700s, an ancient and creepy cemetery, and gorgeous boy Zach—and somehow she’s connected to it all.

But the more questions she asks and the deeper she digs, the more entangled Phe becomes in the haunting past of Shadow Hills. Finding what links her to this town…might cost her her life."

The Mark by Jen Nadol: This book sounds so good!  The reviews I have read about this book have made me want it even more!

Summary from Goodreads: (Release Date: January 19, 2010 by Bloomsbury)

The Mark"Cassandra Renfield has always seen the mark—a glow around certain people reminiscent of candlelight. But the one time she mentioned it, it was dismissed as a trick of the light. Until the day she watches a man awash in the mark die. After searching her memories, Cassie realizes she can see a person’s imminent death. Not how or where, only when: today.

Armed with a vague understanding of the light, Cassie begins to explore her “gift,” seeking those marked for death and probing the line between decision and destiny. Though she’s careful to hide her secret—even from her new philosophy-obsessed boyfriend—with each impending death comes the temptation to test fate. But so many questions remain. How does the mark work? Why is she the only one who sees it? And finally, the most important of all: If you know today is someone’s last, should you tell them?"

These are just a couple of titles off my HUGE wishlist!  Waiting is SUCH torture!!!
