Wednesday Wishes

The snow has come! It’s crazy I’m really going to miss our warm weather, but it’s wonderful that we’ll be getting some more moisture. It’s a 10 year drought and no matter how much moisture we get it just keeps getting drier and drier. Poor Yellowstone, it’s going to be another lack luster year.

Now here are some books I’ve been wishing about.

The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Kiplinger

Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Series: N/A

Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn’t think she’s the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her “the Duff,” she throws her Coke in his face.

But things aren’t so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him.

Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out Wesley isn’t such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she’s falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone.

Before the movie I’ve had my eye on this book. Now I’ve got the push to read it before seeing the movie.

Sleight of Hand by Mark Henwick

Genre: Urban Fantasy
Series: Bite Back, book 1

“Vampires are the flickering illusions of Hollywood. They don’t exist. We do. We are the Athanate.”

For Amber Farrell, post-military life as a PI has its ups and downs: She’s been hit by a truck. She’s being sued by a client. Denver’s newest drug lord just put out a contract on her. The sinister Athanate want her to come in for a friendly chat. And it’s only Tuesday.

Enter Jennifer Kingslund: rich, gorgeous—a tough businesswoman who’s known for getting what she wants in the boardroom and the bedroom. Someone’s trying to sabotage her new resort and destroy her company—and she wants Amber to find out who.

The answers lead Amber past Were and Adepts, right back to the Athanate—and a centuries-old war that could threaten not just Denver, but the nation that Amber swore to protect and serve.

And all sides want to claim her for their own…

When anyone else reads the description do you feel like Amber and Jennifer are going to be hooking up? I’m reading too much into it, huh. (Tee-hee. I made a funny.) Anywho, this was recommended to me by a Goodreads friend. It is self pub, but I’m staying positive! Even with my streak of bad self pub.
