Just like last week, I’m doing another wishlist of books I missed and want.
This week: YA supernatural/thriller/dystopian/not contemporary
1. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart – I’ve heard so many things about this book. No spoilers, thankfully, but a lot of praise and surprise, and I am so intrigued. I have no idea what happens in this book, but I am plenty intrigued to get my hands on it. And I’m already a fan of Lockhart’s, so I should really already have it.
2. Fire by Kristin Cashore—I read the first book in this series, Graceling, and I’ve been meaning to pick this up for a long while. It sounds good, but it’s long. Still, I hope to pick it up at some point.
3. The Rules (Project Paper Doll, #1) by Stacey Kade—I read Kade’s first series and loved it, and I don’t know why I’ve taken so long to pick this one up. It sounds very different, and I’ve heard that it’s darker, and I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.
4. Girl, Stolen by April Henry—After reading Henry’s The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die not too long ago, I’ve been wanting to pick up another of her books. I was surprised by how good that one was, and all of her others sound very good, this one possibly the most interesting to me.
5. Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins—I’ve heard some iffy things and some good things about this book. But overall it sounds good to me, and the romance sounds like something I will enjoy. I almost picked it up once, and now I wish I had.
6. The Collector by Victoria Scott—I’ve heard incredibly good things about this book, and I really want to read it. The humor and the main character makes it sound like something that I would really enjoy.
7. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge—This sounds perfect for me. I’ve recently found a particular fascination in Beauty and the Beast, and I’ve heard very good things about this. I really need to get my hands on it.
8. Alienated by Melissa Landers—This looks good in story and romance. I haven’t really heard anything about it, but I wanted to pick it up as soon as I heard it. The alien element sounds fun, and the covers are adorable.
9. Elemental by Antony John—I read John’s previous two contemporary novels and loved them, but for some reason this series has fallen under the radar for me. It doesn’t sound like something I would normally pick up, but it’s Antony John, so I’m sure it’ll be good.
10. I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga—I’ve enjoyed all of Lyga’s books that I’ve read, and yet for some reason never got around to picking up this series. I’ve even heard a lot of good things about it, too. Maybe it seems too mystery/thriller for me, but I’m still sure I’ll like it.
I don’t normally read a lot of paranormal or dystopian, otherwise this list would have a lot more on it, since I’ve missed a lot of very popular paranormal series. Either way, here it is.
