On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. This is where you write books you’ve been dreaming of owning but haven’t bought yet.
Firelight by Sophie Jordan
This cover is absolutely GORGEOUS. The synopsis is also amazingly delicious *grins* I can’t wait to get my hands on it!!
Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.
Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will’s dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away—if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She’ll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.
Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.
Tan Lines by Katherine Applegate (#2 of Beach Blonde series)
I’ve actually won the first Beach Blonde from a giveaway recently so now I’ve set my sights on Tan Lines. I’ve basically been pining away for this series since the beginning of summer when i was searching for summer reads. Couldn’t find it ANYWHERE where i live and unfortunately no ebooks.
She, Marquez, and Diana have already decided to get an appartment so they can spend the whole summer together. But even with her friends by her side, Summer is in for more boy trouble.
Summer’s boyfriend, Seth, is ready to take their relationship to the next level, but he’s all the way across the country in California. Enter Austin, the hottie from spring break whom Summer hasn’t stopped thinking about.
With Austin flirting 24/7 and Seth hundreds of miles away, Summer is about to learn about true love…
Where She Went by Gayle Forman
If I Stay was SO beautiful and sad and heartbreaking that i am still not over it and I’ve been waiting to get my hands on the second one “Where She Went” but my library doesn’t have it. Hopefully very soon when I’ve got enough money i’ll order it and break my heart all over again.
It’s been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever.
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard’s rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia’s home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future – and each other.
Told from Adam’s point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.
Heartbreak River by Tricia Mills
I was recommended this book after i was looking for books similar to Jenny Han’s “The summer I Turned Pretty” trilogy and i’m glad they recommended it. It is not as light and happy (?) but it was a book that made me read it again less than two weeks after i finished it. I loved it and I SO want to own it and put it on my shelf
Hailey Abbott’s Summer Boys takes a weepy turn in this story of one girl’s attempt to tell her childhood friend how she really feels about him.
Alex thought she’d be spending the summer focused on her family’s rafting business, burying the memories of her father’s death last year, and leaving behind all the messes she made in its wake.
But when Sean returns to town, she is forced to reckon with her mixed-up crushy feelings for him – more powerful than ever before. It takes another tragedy to make Alex realize Sean has loved her, and forgiven her, all along.
