On My Wishlist #9

This is a fun weekly event hosted by
Carolyn 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!

Bloodlines (Bloodlines, #1)

Richelle Mead
Hardcover, 432 pages
Published by Razorbill
Expected Release Date: August 23, 2011
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

From the Goodreads Synopsis

The first book in Richelle Mead's brand-new teen fiction series - set in the same world as Vampire Academy.

When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.

Karen Miller
Hardcover, 640 pages
Published by Orbit on August 4, 2011
Genre: Fantasy

From the Amazon Synopsis

Barl is young and impulsive, but she has a power within that calls to her. In her city, however, only those of noble blood and with the right connections learn the ways of the arcane. Barl is desperate to learn-but her eagerness to use her power leads her astray and she is banned from ever learning the mystic arts.

Morgan holds the key to her education. A member of the Council of Mages, he lives to maintain the status quo, preserve the mage bloodlines, and pursue his scholarly experiments. But Barl's power intrigues him-in spite of her low status.

Sarah Porter
Hardcover, 304 pages
Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
July 4, 2011
(first published June 13, 2011)
Genre: YA Fantasy

From the Goodreads Synopsis
for the Paperback Edition

What happens to the girls nobody sees—the ones who are ignored, mistreated, hidden away? The girls nobody hears when they cry for help?
Fourteen-year-old Luce is one of those lost girls. After her father vanishes in a storm at sea, she is stuck in a grim, gray Alaskan fishing village with her alcoholic uncle. When her uncle crosses an unspeakable line, Luce reaches the depths of despair. Abandoned on the cliffs near her home, she expects to die when she tumbles to the icy, churning waves below. Instead, she undergoes an astonishing transformation and becomes a mermaid.

These all sound terrific, and I have already
put them on my Amazon wish list,
as well as on my "to read" bookshelf
at Goodreads!!

Sooner or later, they will be gracing my
actual bookshelves, in my overcrowded
home library!!

Oh, happy day!!!

So what books are on all of your
wish lists this week?


  1. I want to read Lost Voices and Bloodlines too. I haven't heard of a blight of mages before though - it kinda has a creepy cover lol

  2. I just discovered "A Blight of Mages" through a blog -- Bookish, where it's one of the giveaway prizes. I went to Goodreads, read the synopsis, and liked it! As for the cover, it kinda leaves me indifferent. I would have preferred a prettier

  3. I loved the Vampire Academy series SO much - I can't wait to read Bloodlines, I just hope it's as good :)
