On My Wishlist (45)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where we list all the books we desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. It's also an event that you can join in with too - a linky is always at the ready for you to link your own 'On My Wishlist' post. If you want to know more click here.

Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender:
When Alexis's little sister Kasey becomes obsessed with an antique doll, Alexis thinks nothing of it. Kasey is a weird kid. Period. Alexis is considered weird, too, by the kids in her high school, by her parents, even by her own Goth friends. Things get weirder, though, when the old house they live in starts changing. Doors open and close by themselves; water boils on the unlit stove; and an unplugged air conditioner turns the house cold enough to see their breath in. Kasey is changing, too. Her blue eyes go green and she speaks in old-fashioned language, then forgets chunks of time.

Most disturbing of all is the dangerous new chip on Kasey's shoulder. The formerly gentle, doll-loving child is gone, and the new Kasey is angry. Alexis is the only one who can stop her sister — but what if that green-eyed girl isn't even Kasey anymore?

Die For Me by Amy Plum:
My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.

Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.

Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.

Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies . . . immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.

While I'm fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart—as well as my life and my family's—in jeopardy for a chance at love?

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead:
The first book in Richelle Mead’s brand-new teen fiction series—set in the same world as Vampire Academy.

When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines explores all the friendship, romance, battles and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive—this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone’s out for blood.


  1. I really want Die For Me and Bad Girls don't die! I've heard great things about both books :)

  2. I still need to read her Vampire Academy series but I want to read Bloodlines too :)

    On My Wishlist

  3. The cover for the UK version of Die for Me is gorgeous.

    I loved the VA series, but not really the last two, especially Last Sacrifice. I haven't decided if I'm going to read the spin-off, since the last book was more a spring board for it instead of finishing the VA series.

    Happy reading :-)

  4. Bad Girls Don't Die just gives me the chills. I had nightmares from that stoopid movie with that Chucky doll. lol It sounds good enough to try and read in the light though. Die For Me sounds good too.

  5. Bad Girls Don't Die sounds just awfully creepy, so I have to have it. I'm waiting for there to be a super scary Japanese movie made out of it, lol.

    My Wishlist

  6. I'm reading an eARC of Die for Me from NetGalley right now and I'm loving it! I'm only about half way through but I already recommend that you pick it up when it comes out :)

    Feel free to check out what's on my wishlist this week.

  7. I'd love Die for Me and Bloodlines as well, hope you get them soon!
