From now until Christmas I will be posting the books that are on my wishlist to Santa this year!
1. Fever (The Chemical Garden Trilogy #2) by Lauren Destefano
Okay, so technically I’ve already read this one (and covet it!) but I only got it from the library, I unfortunately do not have it on my shelf next to book 1, Wither. This is a must-have!
2. Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth
Another one that I’ve already read but don’t own. Also, another MUST-HAVE!!!!
3. Dreamless (Starcrossed #2) by Josephine Angelini
Yep, I’m sensing a trend here! Another one where I own book #1 but need #2.
4. Spider’s Bite (Elemental Assassin #1) by Jennifer Estep
I had this one in my hands last time I was at Barnes & Noble, but I put it back. I hate when I do that! No worries, I’ve got book 1 on my “Want for Xmas” list!
5. Crewel (Crewel World #1) by Gennifer Albin
Besides the amazingly gorgeous cover, this story about Adelice Lewys who can weave time with matter sounds incredible!
7. Ashes of Twilight (Ashes Trilogy #1) by Kassy Tayler
I fell in love with the cover and was set on buying it just for that, and the fact that the main character’s name is Wren, which I love! A mix of dystopian & steampunk make this one appear on my list this year.
8. What’s Left of Me (The Hybrid Chronicles #1) by Kat Zhang
This one sounds great, I want to read it ASAP!
9. Black City (Black City #1) by Elizabeth Richards
Because this one just looks awesome!
10. Renegade (The Elysium Chronicles #1) by J.A. Souders
I’ve been wanting this one since I first found it on Goodreads! It’s so unique sounding and yeah, I just really want it!!
What books are your Wish List this holiday season?
My Picks: Lost Voices – Love the color of the water and how it looks. I like that the mermaid has more definition to it, even though the silhouettes on In Great Waters leaves an air of mystery. Like the font better as well. | Wicked Lovely – I bought this one because of the cover. It’s always been one of my favorite – it’s so beautiful! | Immortal – it has a vintage, eerie feel to it. I love the layout and how the necklace chain “flows” with the water.
which are your favorites?

WHAT THE BACK OF THE BOOK SAYS: Remy O’Malley heals people with touch – but ever injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive father, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns, and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far.
Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a Protector of Healers, Asher sacrificed his senses to become immortal. Only by killing a Healer can a Protector recover their human senses. Falling in love is against the rules between these two enemies. Because Remy has the power to make Protectors human again, and when they find out, they’ll be coming for her – if Asher doesn’t kill her first.
This is book one in the Touched trilogy.
MY THOUGHTS: A pretty unique concept, and not one overburdening the YA market right now. I’m really curious to see how the relationship between Remy and Asher is going to play out — sounds like it could get pretty messy!!
