Reading Wishlist

Hey guys!
     I'm going to feature four books here (and summaries) that I am literally dying to read. If you have read any of them, you can tell me what you thought. :)

Reading level: Young Adult

Hardcover: 496 pages   

Three angels are sent down to bring good to the world: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. But she is the most human, and when she is romantically drawn to a mortal boy, the angels fear she will not be strong enough to save anyone—especially herself—from the Dark Forces.

 Is love a great enough power against evil?I don't know, I just really want to read this book. The cover is beautiful, from the lighting to the text. Also, it sounds pretty original. Can't wait to get my hands on that one! :)

Reading Level: Young Adult
Paperback: 304 pages
Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey—ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.

    Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.   I can't even express how much I want to read this book. I loved Iron King so much, so my need for this book is rapidy increasing every day. I actually went to go get it a few days ago, but it wasn't even in the store! I know right! Anyways, next time I go to the bookstore, guess which book I'm getting? THIS ONE! Not to mention the beautiful cover. Haha, a beautiful cover for something that is sure to be a beautiful story, I'd say :) If you've read this let me know how it is!

Reading Age: Young Adult
Paperback: 368 pages
 When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created “perfect” life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for—her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect. Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.

    In a passionate story about looking beneath the surface, Simone Elkeles breaks through the stereotypes and barriers that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart.

    I'm not even sure why I feel such a great need for this story but I do. It's been a long time since I've sat down and read a teen romance (the last one was The Last Song in like January) so to me, this book is exactly what I need right now. It's like a fresh breath of air, to temporarily get away from fantasy and supernatural stuff. Also, I've heard from just about every review I read on this book, that it was amazing. The cover didn't really captivate me, but for some reason now that I know it's bound to be a good book, it looks a whole lot better (the cover, that is.)

Reading Age: Young Adult
Hardcover: 480 pages
What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

    Samantha Kingston has it all: the world's most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life.
    Instead, it turns out to be her last.
    Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death—and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.

    I actually have this book, but my sister is reading it right now! Do you know how difficult it is to see the book right there on your nightstand on not being able to read it?! Lol, well she's almost done so I'm going to let her do a review on it once she finishes :) (And then I will read it and edit her review to fit my, I'm joking ;D). Anyways, the cover of this book is beautiful. It's one of those books you like having on your bookshelf, for sure. Then again, that's like every book. Oh you know what I mean. I like the idea of this book and am very, very excited to start reading!

Well, until next time. Xoxo.

  1. Before I Fall... I loved that book! I really want to buy the published version of it, I got the ARC one at the beginning of the year. When I have time I really want to read that book again. (:
