Wednesday Wishes

This post follows BCC's meme, My wishlist.
Rippleby Mandy Hubbard

Eighteen year old Lexi Wentworth is cursed. For as long as she can remember, she’s spent every night swimming. If she doesn’t, she’ll regret it—simply walking will be agony, as if she’s stepping on shattered glass. Her body craves the water, demands the water, until she can’t say no.

But it's not the swimming that troubles Lexi. It’s the singing that goes with it.When she turned sixteen, her siren song killed the only boy she's ever loved. Now, she avoids the popular shores of the Pacific in favor of a long forgotten lake up in the mountains, where she can swim and sing in peace, far from the population of her oceanside home.

Until, that is, Troy Mills discovers her lake. He’s new to Lincoln City High, and he doesn’t know about Lexi’s reputation as an ice queen—a reputation she’s carefully cultivated to keep everyone around her safe. He pushes her, talks to her, forces her to dream of what life could be like if she weren’t a siren.

Lexi can’t stop herself from warming to him, from falling for him. Soon, he’s demanding answers, following her to the lake, unknowingly risking his life. How can she keep him safe when the one thing she wants most--to hold him close-- will endanger his life?

Abandon by Meg Cabot

the first book in Meg's new paranormal romance series for young adult readers.

Fallen Angel by Heather Terrell

The first in a dark and gothic YA series in which a young girl is embroiled in a deadly game of blood lust and biblical myth,

The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong

According to Kelley Armstrong,

"I've been calling the next book "Darkest Powers 4" because it's the same overall series. It's new characters, though, in a new trilogy. I do something similar with my adult books--one series with changing narrators. My publisher may decide to give it a new title, but until then, I'm calling it all the Darkest Powers series, with the 1st 3 being the Project Genesis trilogy and the next 3 being the Project Phoenix trilogy."


Halo by Alexandra Adornetto

Nothing much happens in Tallow Beach. But when three mysterious teens enroll in the local high school, everything changes. Nobody knows the truth: that they are angels on a mission to save a world on the brink of destruction. When Beth, the youngest, falls for her classmate Xavier, she faces a frightening decision: will she defy the laws of Heaven by loving him? Things come to a head when the angels realize that they are not they only supernatural power in Tallow Beach. The unscrupulous Jack Thorn sees Beth as the easiest target to further his own dark ambitions. The angels and Xavier must use their powers to overcome darkness - but will Beth survive the battle?

These are some very scary awesome sounding books! Just wish I new what the covers looked like. Hope you all saw the wonderful news about Armstrong continueing her YA books/series. I can not wait to see what the new cast and story is like.

As for Kelley Armstrong, I really like how she writes her adult novels. I still havent read her YA series but I do have the first one autographed.

So far I've enjoyed her adult series. I really think she shines in the YA genre. Even some of her Ya short stories are great!
