On My Wishlist {4}


On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City that runs every Saturday. It's where you share a list of books you've been dreaming about but haven't purchased yet. They can be old, new or upcoming releases. For more information click here.

Here's what's on my wishlist this week...

Anna Dressed in Blood  by Kendare Blake
{Anna Dressed in Blood Series ~ Book #1}
Genre: Paranormal YA
Release Date: August 30, 2011

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.

So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.

When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn't expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, but now stained red and dripping blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.

And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.
(Goodreads.com)

The haunting cover alone drew me in, but when I read the synopsis, I was really intrigued. It sounds pretty dark, gothic and mysterious for a YA novel. I love a book that keeps you guessing and on the edge and this one sounds promising! 


Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey
Genre: Paranormal YA
Release Date: December 8, 2011

Lenzi hears voices. She also sees visions--gravestones, floods, a gorgeous guy with steel gray eyes. She knows she must be going crazy, just like her dad did. Her boyfriend, Zak, can't do anything to help, and the voices just keep getting louder, the visions more intense. But when Lenzi meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, everything makes sense.

Sort of.

He tells Lenzi that she's a reincarnated Speaker--someone who can talk to lost souls and help them move on--and that he has been her Protector for centuries. But instead of embracing her abilities, Lenzi struggles between her life as the girlfriend of a sexy musician and the life she is destined to lead with Alden. Yet time is running out; a malevolent spirit has been trying to destroy Lenzi for ages, and he will surely kill her if she doesn't make a decision soon.

Her choices are clear: Destiny or normalcy. Alden or Zak. Life or death. (Goodreads.com)

Another beautiful cover and interesting concept! A book with a supernatural theme and a love triangle is worthy of being on my wishlist!
