On My Wish List #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!

Cinderella :Ninja Warrior (Twisted Tales #1)
Maureen McGowan

Publication Date: April 1st 2011
Genre: Fantasy YA

In this fast-paced story full of adventure and romance, Cinderella is more than just a servant girl waiting for her prince—she's a tough, fearless girl who is capable of taking charge of a dangerous situation. Seeking to escape the clutches of her evil stepmother, Cinderella perfects her ninja skills and magic talents in secret, waiting for the day when she can break free and live happily ever after. In a special twist, readers have the opportunity to make key decisions for Cinderella and decide where she goes next—but no matter the choice; the result is a story unlike any fairy tale you've ever read!

Hope Welsh
Publication Date: March 1st 2011
Genre: PNR

Evil is watching and time is running out. Tara Summers wants an ordinary life--and nothing to do with anything paranormal. She shuns
her own paranormal abilities. When her home is broken into, Cole Williams comes to the rescue--and he's much more than he seems. Will they be able to stop the evil or is their joining going to be the cause of evil taking control?

Intrinsical (The Yara Silva Trilogy #1)
Lani Woodlands (Pendrell)
Publication Date: August 20th 2010
Genre: PNR YA

Sixteen-year-old Yara Silva has always known that ghosts walk alongside
the living. Her grandma, like the other females in her family, is a Waker, someone who can see and communicate with ghosts. Yara grew up watching her grandmother taunted and scorned for this unusual ability and doesn't want that to be her future. She has been dreading the day when she too would see ghosts, and is relieved that the usually dominant Waker gene seems to have skipped her, letting her live a normal teenage life. However, all that changes for Yara on her first day at her elite boarding school when she discovers the gene was only lying dormant. She witnesses a dark mist attack Brent, a handsome fellow student, and rushes to his rescue. Her act of heroism draws the mist's attention, and the dark spirit begins stalking her. Yara finds herself entrenched in a sixty-year-old curse that haunts the school, threatening not only her life, but the lives of her closest friends as well. Yara soon realizes that the past she was trying to put behind her isn't going to go quietly

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


  1. The Cinderella one sounds interesting. Hope you get to read these soon :)

  2. Cinderella as a Ninja? How can that be bad? :) I've read one of those books that let you "play" along, they're interesting.
