On My Wishlist (#22)

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:

Two books on my wishlist today, both really quite different and very random.  And they are...

The Mark (The Mark, #1)The Mark
Series: The Mark, Book One
By: Jen Nadol
Published: 19th January 2010
Published By: Bloomsbury
Found: On Goodreads
Synopsis From Goodreads:
Sixteen year old Cassandra Renfield has seen the mark since forever: a glow around certain people as if a candle were held behind their back.
The one time she mentioned it to someone else, the mark was dismissed as a trick of the light. So Cassie has kept quiet, considering its rare appearances odd, but insignificant. Until the day she watches a man die. Mining her memories, Cassie realizes she can see a person's imminent death. Now how or where, only when: today.
Cassie searches her past, her philosophy lessons, even her new boyfriend for answers, answers, always careful to hide her secret. How does the mark work? Why her?
Most importantly: if you know today is someone's last, should you tell them?
I just love the sound of this one!  I love supernatural powers, and this one sounds awesome!  :D
Away for the Weekend 

Away for the Weekend
By: Dylan Sheldon
Published: 6th October 2011
Published By: Walker
Found: On Goodreads
Synopsis From Goodreads:
A brainbox, a fashionists, and two angels intent on some divine interference - it's going to be an interesting weekend! The only thing Gabriela and Beth have in common is that they are in LA for the weekend. Gabriela is there for frivolity, fashion and fun; Beth for lectures, learning and literature. But what neither girl knows is that they are not alone. Two angels are in LA with them. And the angels have other ideas...This is a fast and funny body-swap comedy from a best-selling author.
This is kind of a guilty-wishing book.  It just sounds so cute!  I can't resist! ;)
Well, that's what I'm wishing for this week. 
What's on your wishlist today?
