On My Wishlist (10)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday.
It's a place where you can list all the books you desperately want but haven't actually bought yet.
They can be old, new or forthcoming.
Read more about it HERE.

My wishlist:  
 
Meridian
Amber Kizer
(Fenestra #1)
Published August 11th 2009
 

 
Half-human, half-angel, Meridian Sozu has a dark responsibility.
 
Sixteen-year-old Meridian has been surrounded by death ever since she can remember. As a child, insects, mice, and salamanders would burrow into her bedclothes and die. At her elementary school, she was blamed for a classmate’s tragic accident. And on her sixteenth birthday, a car crashes in front of her family home—and Meridian’s body explodes in pain.
 
Before she can fully recover, Meridian is told that she’s a danger to her family and hustled off to her great-aunt’s house in Revelation, Colorado. It’s there that she learns that she is a Fenestra—the half-angel, half-human link between the living and the dead. But Meridian and her sworn protector and love, Tens, face great danger from the Aternocti, a band of dark forces who capture vulnerable souls on the brink of death and cause chaos.

Highborn 
Yvonne Navarro
(Dark Redemption #1)
Published October 26th 2010



EVERYONE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE. BRYNNA MALAK MIGHT BE THE EXCEPTION TO THE RULE.
 
Brynna is a fallen angel trying to earn redemption. She’s escaped from Hell in search of a new life on Earth, but Lucifer’s deadliest hunters are hot on her trail. Police Detective Eran Redmond is after her for a different reason: he needs Brynna to help him find a serial killer who is terrifying Chicago . . . and the trail leads them right to Hellspawned demons of the most dangerous kind. She’s also got a very human problem: dealing with a stubborn, attractive cop who makes her long for everything she knows she can’t have.
 
Staying alive long enough to earn a shot at Heaven will mean breaking some major rules in the mortal world, as she learns just how complicated and wonderful being human can be. With so much stacked against her, even Brynna has to wonder if she’s crazy. But she’s not giving in without a fight.

Not a chance in Hell. . . .

Two series I have heard good things about and I hope to get to read them at some point.

Meridian sounds so creepy, but in a good way! I want it, I want it. :)

I haven't heard of the second book, but anything with the word "Hellspawned" in the blurb has to be good, right?

Hope you get to read both of these soon!
