On My Wish List (5) Miles From Ordinary, Juliet Immortal, Capture

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 at Book Chick City).

This week I'm wishing for:
Miles From Ordinary 
Author: Carol Lynch Williams
Released: March 15, 2011
Summary from Goodreads:

Thirteen-year-old Lacey wakes to a beautiful summer morning excited to begin her new job at the library, just as her mother is supposed to start work at the grocery store. Lacey hopes that her mother's ghosts have finally been laid to rest; after all, she seems so much better these days, and they really do need the money. But as the hours tick by and memories come flooding back, a day full of hope spins terrifyingly out of control....

Juliet Immortal
Author: Stacey Jay
Expected Release: September 2011
Summary from Goodreads:
"These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume."
—Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

The most tragic love story in history . . .

Juliet Capulet didn't take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn't anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she's fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she's forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.

Author: Nicole Sobon
Released: March 17, 2011
Summary from Goodreads: 
Autumn Stone spent her life in Lunica City thinking she was free, that it was her home. All of that changed when she found herself sitting before Official Agnes below the Command Center with no recollection as to how she arrived there. Desperately seeking answers, Autumn sets out on a mission that will slowly, but surely, begin to unravel everything in she knew, including herself. Can she save the only place she knows as home from destruction or will she lose it all in the process?
