On My Wishlist is an awesome weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City that runs every Saturday. It's a place where you can put up all the books you're desperate to read, but haven't actually bought them yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. And, even better, everyone can join in with too, because there's a Mr Linky so you can put your post up. All you have to do is click on the link below:
Hmm, afraid I still haven't gotten round to actually getting any of the books on my wishlist, but oh well... There's more. I have a monster list going on her. Anyway, this is what's On My Wishlist this week:
Series: Clarity, Book On

When you can see things others can't, where do you look for the truth?
This paranormal murder mystery will have teens reading on the edge of their seats.
Clarity "Clare" Fern sees things. Things no one else can see. Things like stolen kisses and long-buried secrets. All she has to do is touch a certain object, and the visions come to her. It's a gift.
And a curse.
When a teenage girl is found murdered, Clare's ex-boyfriend wants her to help solve the case--but Clare is still furious at the cheating jerk. Then Clare's brother--who has supernatural gifts of his own--becomes the prime suspect, and Clare can no longer look away. Teaming up with Gabriel, the smoldering son of the new detective, Clare must venture into the depths of fear, revenge, and lust in order to track the killer. But will her sight fail her just when she needs it most?
This looks brilliant, and can I just say how much I love this cover? The way the light falls, the windswept hair, the simple colours, and the little 'She can see your secrets'... Love it!
The Forest of Hands and Teeth
Series: The Forest of Hands and Teeth, Book One

2009 Paperback | Hardcover | 2010 Paperback
In Mary's world there are simple truths.
The Sisterhood always knows best.
The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent.
And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth.
But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her.
And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?
I'm behind on this series, but it looks amazing. I'm not sure which cover I like best... the 2009 PB is simple and I love the colours. The hardcover is beautiful and dramatic. And the 2010 PB isn't exactly beautiful, but it's very... stunning, I guess is the word to use... I don't know, what do you think?
