Wishlist #3

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where I list all the books I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.
I cant wait for the second book in these two series!



Touch of Frost (Mythos Academy #1)
Jennifer Estep
Publication Date: July 26th 2011
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy


My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Acad emy — a school of myths, magic and war rior whiz kids, where even the lowli est geek knows how to chop off somebody’s head with a sword and Logan
Quinn, the hottest Spar tan guy in school, also hap pens to be the deadliest.

But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jas­mine Ash ton was mur dered in the Library of Antiq ui ties. Then, some one stole the Bowl of Tears, a mag i cal arti fact that can be used to bring about the sec ond Chaos War. You know, death, destruc tion and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I’m deter mined to find out who killed Jas mine and why – espe cially since I should have been the one who died..



ShatteredSouls
Mary Lindsay
Publication Date: December 8th 2011
Genre: YA PNR


Lenzi hears voices. She also sees visions--gravestones, floods, a gorgeous guy with steel gray eyes. She knows she must be going crazy, just like her dad did. Her boyfriend, Zak, can't do anything to help, and the voices just keep getting louder, the visions more intense. But when Lenzi meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, everything makes sense.

Sort of

He tells Lenzi that she's a reincarnated Speaker--someone who can talk to lost souls and help them move on--and that he has been her Protector for centuries. But instead of embracing her abilities, Lenzi struggles between her life as the girlfriend of a sexy musician and the life she is destined to lead with Alden. Yet time is running out; a malevolent spirit has been trying to destroy Lenzi for ages, and he will surely kill her if she doesn't make a decision soon.

Her choices are clear: Destiny or normalcy. Alden or Zak. Life or death.



Original
Sin (Personal Demons #2)
Lisa Desrochers
Publication Date: August 20th 2010
Genre: PNR YA


When secrets and old histories come to light, Frannie realizes that nobody is who she thought they were. Hell won’t give up and Heaven won’t give in. Some are willing to hurt anyone close to Frannie in order to get what they want. It will take everything she has and then some to stay out of Hell's grasp.

And not everyone will get out of it alive.

So, that's what's on my wishlist this week - what's on yours?

  1. All of these are on my wishlist - I actually had a dream last night where I found a hardback copy of Shattered Souls in a 2nd hand shop. Guess I really want it too!

  4. I've never seen this cover version of Touch of Frost. She kinda looks like a young Scarlett Johansson.

    Looking forward to reading Shattered Souls and thanks for reminding me to read Personal Demons, so I can read book 2.

    Happy reading :-)

  5. I can't wait for the Estep book - I love her Elemental Assassin series, so I'm really looking forward to this.

    The worst thing about some of these pre-orders lately is they have such long projected-release dates!
