On My Wishlist #16




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!







Hardcover, 416 pages
Philomel
Expected Publication Date: January 3, 2012
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance


From the Goodreads Synopsis


Calla has always welcomed war. But now that the final battle is upon her, there’s more at stake than fighting. There’s saving Ren, even if it incurs Shay’s wrath. There’s keeping Ansel safe, even if he’s been branded a traitor. There’s proving herself as the pack’s alpha, facing unnamable horrors, and ridding the world of the Keepers’ magic once and for all. And then there’s deciding what to do when the war ends. If Calla makes it out alive, that is.




I'm currently reading Wolfsbane, the second book in this series,
which I'm enjoying just as much as
Nightshade,the first one.
So I will definitely want to go on to the third, and
any others she writes about Calla and her world!







Hardcover, 384 pages
HarperTeen
Expected Publication: March 6, 2012
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance


From the Goodreads Synopsis


Haunted by memories from his first days as a vampire, Balthazar has spent hundreds of years alone—without allies, without love. When he emerges from his isolation to help Skye Tierney, a human girl who once attended Evernight Academy, Balthazar has no idea how dangerous it will be. Skye’s psychic powers have caught the attention of Redgrave, the cruel master vampire responsible for murdering Balthazar and his family four centuries ago. Having learned of Skye’s powers and the remarkable effect her blood has on vampires, he plans to use her for his own evil purposes...



Since I already own the first four books of this series,
I have to get the fifth one,
in order to complete it.
And, of course, I have to start on the
very first one...







Trade Paperback, 384 pages
Gollancz
May 13, 2010
(first published April 28, 2008)
Genre: Paranormal Romance


From the Goodreads Synopsis


Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

Being around him awakens all her emotions. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones.



I've just bought the first book, Halfway To The Grave,
of this series I've heard so much about!
I read a few pages just the other day,
and heck, yeah, I want the entire series!

Also, I much prefer the UK covers,
with those glowing titles!




What fabulous books are you all
wishing for this week?
