On My Wishlist #14




This is a fun weekly event hosted by
Carolyn and Laura at  Book Chick City,
 and runs every Saturday.
Each participating blogger features books 
s/he hasn't actually bought yet,
but desperately wants to read!!


These books can be either newly-published,
to be released in the near future,
or in print for several years.

If you'd like to know more, just click HERE.

In my particular case, any books I place
on my wish list are strictly the print versions,
since I do not read ebooks. 


Here are my choices for this week!






Trade Paperback, 416 pages
Harlequin Teen
Expected Publication: October 18, 2011
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance


From the Goodreads Synopsis


Savannah Colbert has been shunned all her life by the kids of the Clann. And when she undergoes some drastic changes after a strange illness, Savannah learns secrets about the group and about herself—dangerous secrets. For the Clann are powerful magic users, and Savannah herself is half Clann and half vampire—a forbidden, unheard of combination. Falling for Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman isn't just a bad idea—it could be deadly if anyone finds out. But her attraction to Tristan—and his to her—isn't something either of them can resist for long.






Trade Paperback, 320 pages
NAL Trade
September 6, 2011
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance


From the Goodreads Synopsis


When Annelise meets dark and seductive Ronan, he promises her a new life-if she has the courage to chance the unknown. Now, she's whisked away to a mysterious island and pitted against other female recruits to become a Watcher-girls who are partnered with vampires and assist them in their missions. To survive and become a Watcher, Annelise has to beat out every other girl, but she's determined to do so, because to fail doesn't mean dishonor-it means death.






Hardcover, 400 pages
Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Expected Publication: January 10, 2012
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance


From the Goodreads Synopsis


St. Petersburg, Russia, 1888. As she attends a whirl of glittering balls, royal debutante Katerina Alexandrovna, Duchess of Oldenburg, tries to hide a dark secret: she can raise the dead. No one knows. Not her family. Not the girls at her finishing school. Not the tsar or anyone in her aristocratic circle. Katerina considers her talent a curse, not a gift. But when she uses her special skill to protect a member of the Imperial Family, she finds herself caught in a web of intrigue.



These are all so very interesting!
Two of them feature my favorite supernatural creatures:
vampires.
The other one is about 19th-century Russia,
which I absolutely love,
since I'm a big fan of Russian literature of that time.
(I adore Crime and Punishment, by Dostoevsky,
for instance!)

I can at least get the second book already,
since it's just been published!
So...on to Amazon!!



What wonderful books are you all
wishing for this week?
