On My Wishlist: Books That Are Driving Me Insane With Wishes! (#14)

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:

Today, there are just a few things I am wishing against all wishes for. 
Ok, maybe "a few" was a little bit of an understatement.  Alright, alright, a huge understatement!  But these books are the ones I going insane by wishing for .  Loads of these may have been on previous memes, but I just sooo want them!!  Well, it's my birthday next week, so who needs practical things when they have a book list as long as this one?!  I'm just gonna direct everyone I know towards this page.  "If you're still looking..."   It's also the unofficial shopping list I'm taking with me on my birthday shop.  ;)
And these very important items are...
