Wednesday Wishes

Hunting for books is one of my favorite things. Finding a new title is my equivalent of "getting rich." Whether the titles been around for a while, brand spanking new, or just not that common Wednesday Wishes is here for me to share them with you.

Pulse (Pulse, #1)
Pulse (Pulse #1) by Kailin Gow

Kalina didn't know her boyfriend was a vampire until the day he died of a freak accident. She didn't know he had come from an old line of vampires until the day his two half-brothers showed up to investigate his demise. Now she has to work with them in order to uncover the secrets her boyfriend had been hiding in order to survive. But working and being close to two vampire half-brothers had suddenly gotten interesting.
This one sounds intriguing, can never say no to a vampire read.

Vesper (Deviants, #1)
Vesper (Deviants, #1) by Jeff Sampson

Emily Webb is a geek. And she’s happy that way. Content hiding under hoodies and curling up to watch old horror flicks, she’s never been the kind of girl who sneaks out for midnight parties. And she’s definitely not the kind of girl who starts fights or flirts with other girls’ boyfriends. Until one night Emily finds herself doing exactly that . . . the same night one of her classmates—also named Emily—is found mysteriously murdered.

The thing is, Emily doesn’t know why she’s doing any of this. By day, she’s the same old boring Emily, but by night, she turns into a thrill seeker. With every nightfall, Emily gets wilder until it’s no longer just her personality that changes. Her body can do things it never could before: Emily is now strong, fast, and utterly fearless. And soon Emily realizes that she’s not just coming out of her shell . . . there’s something much bigger going on. Is she bewitched by the soul of the other, murdered Emily? Or is Emily Webb becoming something else entirely—something not human?

As Emily hunts for answers, she finds out that she’s not the only one this is happening to—some of her classmates are changing as well. Who is turning these teens into monsters—and how many people will they kill to get what they want?
I love the chilling thought of being possessed or evolving into something else not human. Chilly right?

She Smells the Dead (Spirit Guide, #1)
She Smells the Dead (Spirit Guide #1) by E.J. Stevens

It's the beginning of senior year and Yuki's psychic awareness of ghostly spirits is threatening to ruin her life. Her ability to sense spirits of the dead isn't glamorous like the ghost hunting on television.

SHE SMELLS THE DEAD.

The smell impressions are becoming stronger. Yuki is being visited in her dreams, and she suspects that her friend Calvin is involved in something strange. To make matters worse her crush on Garrett is going unrequited, Yuki's friend Emma is on a rampage against bee oppression, and annoying Calvin Miller mysteriously disappears.

Will Yuki be able to focus her powers in time to save the lost soul who is haunting her? Meanwhile, who will save Yuki from following the spirits into the light?
I love the cover.  Plus I love the name Yuki. Fruits Basket, Vampire Knight, The Cat Returns, and my cat's name is Yuki!
