My wishlist:

My Soul to Take
Rachel Vincent
(Soul Screamers #1)
Published August 1st 2009

I love Rachel Vincent's Shifters series but I haven't had the fortune to start this series yet. If it's nearly as great as her Shifters series it's going to be a fantastic read.


My Soul to Take description:
She doesn't see dead people. She senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally.
Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next.










The Iron King
Julie Kagawa
(Iron Fey #1)
Published February 1st 2010

I have wanted to start this series for a while. I have heard some great thing about this book and the cover looks awesome. I hope to get my fingers on a copy soon.


The Iron King description:
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined…
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
 




13 To Life
Shannon Delany
(13 to Life #1)
Published June 22nd 2010

I'm very excited to start the series, the book sounds interesting and book two has just been released so what better time to begin this series.


13 To Life description:
Something strange is stalking the small town of Junction…
When junior Jess Gillmansen gets called out of class by Guidance, she can only presume it’s for one of two reasons. Either they’ve finally figured out who wrote the scathing anti-jock editorial in the school newspaper or they’re hosting yet another intervention for her about her mom. Although far from expecting it, she’s relieved to discover Guidance just wants her to show a new student around—but he comes with issues of his own including a police escort.
The newest member of Junction High, Pietr Rusakova has secrets to hide--secrets that will bring big trouble to the small town of Junction—secrets including dramatic changes he’s undergoing that will surely end his life early.

Thanks for the comment (:

Nice picks - I've heard great things about the first two series, even though they're not the type of books I normally read. The third one I hadn't heard of yet, but it sounds really interesting!

Have you read My Soul to Lose, it's the prequel to the series. You can download it for free here.

This could be my wish list, with the exception of My Soul to Take and only because I've already read it.

Hope you get a chance to read them soon.

YA Book Lover said...

I won My Soul to Take from a giveaway not too long ago and haven't gotten around to reading it yet, but I really want to! 13 to Life seemed to be very popular a while back but I don't know if I would like it or not. I will have to check it out though.
Hope you get to read them soon!

Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamer series is really good and Kagawa's Iron Fey series - GAH - loved it!! Kagawa had to add a 4th book in what was supposed to be a trilogy because there was still so much story to be told.

Great picks!

The Book Vixen said...

Hope you get to read all of these soon :)

Here's what is on my wishlist this week.

I've been wanting to read the Soul Screamers series too. Haven't quite yet. LOVED the Iron Fey series. I think you will too! Oh and 13 to Life. I've heard good things. I want to read as well. Great choices!

A. Knight said...

I really liked My Soul to Take, though I didn't pursue this series. I LOVE the Iron Fey series and 13 to Life, so much so I can't wait for The Iron Knight or Secrets and Shadows! I have a feeling that you'd enjoy all of these. Great list! I hope you get your hands on a copy of each.

Thanks for stopping by the blog! I'm your newest follower. Have a great weekend, be safe, and happy reading!
