On My Wish List (2)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where I list all the books I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. It's also an event that you can join in with too - Mr Linky is always at the ready for you to link your own 'On My Wishlist' post(found out Book Chick City). If you want to know more click here.
Right now I'm looking at and wishing for:
Initiation (The Warrior Book 1)
Author: Rebecca Royce
Released: February 2, 2011
Summary from Goodreads:
My name is Rachel Clancy. Thirty years before I was born, the world ended. Today is my sixteenth birthday. Today I will go Upwards to fight the monsters and, statistically speaking, I won’t be coming back—at least not still living.

Initiation is the story of sixteen year old Rachel Clancy, born with a specific set of genes that let her fight monsters, she has trained her entire life to kill Vampires and Werewolves. Knowing since birth what her destiny would be has not made the onslaught of emotions she faces as she journey Upwards any easier. It doesn’t help that her father is drunk and her best friend just doesn’t get ‘it.’

Rachel isn’t prepared for the level of deception she faces, and before long she will find herself on a quest she is in no way prepared to handle. What happens next will alter not only Rachel’s life but the lives of everyone she knows. She will learn beyond a shadow of a doubt that sometimes the monsters we know are worse than the ones we don’t and that love can surprise us when it comes from somewhere we never anticipated it.

If she lives, she will be a Warrior. If she doesn’t, no one will ever remember her name.
Not Fiction but I really want to read this. 

Eating Animals
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
Released: November 2, 2009
Summary from Goodreads:
Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between carnivore and vegetarian. As he became a husband and a father, he kept returning to two questions: Why do we eat animals? And would we eat them if we knew how they got on our dinner plates?
Brilliantly synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, and his own undercover detective work, Eating Animals explores the many fictions we use to justify our eating habits-from folklore to pop culture to family traditions and national myth-and how such tales justify a brutal ignorance. Marked by Foer's profound moral ferocity and unvarying generosity, as well as the vibrant style and creativity that made his previous books, Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, huge bestsellers, Eating Animals is a celebration and a reckoning, a story about the stories we've told--and the stories we now need to tell.
I've heard this one is really good!
Author: Kiersten White
Released: August 31, 2010
Summary from Goodreads:
Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.
But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.
So much for normal.

I really want this too even though it's not a book.  It sounds amazingly yummy though. 
A vegan strawberry frappe.  Oh can you feel the drool? 
So what are you wishing for this Saturday?


  1. I really want to read Paranormalcy, thanks for stopping by.

  2. I've been trying to get my hands on a copy of Paranormalcy as well. Hasn't happened for me yet, but here's hoping.
    I also think Initiation sound good as well.

    Thanks for stopping by :D

  3. I think Eating Animals sounds so interesting! And I've heard such good things about Paranormalcy that I'll have to pick it up at some point as well :) Hope you get to enjoy these soon!


Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing what you think!
