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.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer – by Michelle Hodkin
This cover is SO SO SO HOT and so is the synopsis. GOD i just want to get my hands on a copy of my own.
Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.
She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.
The Beginning of After – by Jennifer Castle
So this book is sad, and thats what i know about it. and im such a SUCKER for sad books. They are so real, and they are always the ones that i never forget. I want to read this book, and i want to OWN a copy.
Anyone who’s had something truly crappy happen to them will tell you: It’s all about Before and After. What I’m talking about here is the ka-pow, shake-you-to-your-core-and-turn-your-bones-to-plastic kind of crappy.
Sixteen-year-old Laurel’s world changes instantly when her parents and brother are killed in a terrible car accident. Behind the wheel is the father of her bad-boy neighbor, David Kaufman, whose mother is also killed. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Laurel navigates a new reality in which she and her best friend grow apart, boys may or may not be approaching her out of pity, overpowering memories lurk everywhere, and Mr. Kaufman is comatose but still very much alive. Through it all there is David, who swoops in and out of Laurel’s life and to whom she finds herself attracted against her better judgment. She will forever be connected to him by their mutual loss—a connection that will change them both in unexpected ways.
Jennifer Castle’s debut novel is a heart-wrenching, surprisingly witty testament to how drastically life can change in the span of a single moment.
Where She Went – by Gayle Forman
I have read the first book “If I Stay” and i fell in love. It was AMAZING. You tell me there is a 2nd book? HAND IT IN NOW! but unfortunately no one did, therefore it ended up staying on my wishlist.
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.
Now you tell me, whats on YOUR wishlist eh?
