Hey, Faithful Followers!
Here’s the next Weekly Wishlist! I know, I’m behind by several weeks. Been really busy.
My first book is My Boyfriends’ Dogs by Dandi Daley Mackall. I first heard about this book in a convocation I attended (Which was encouraging reading). I found it interesting and added it to my to-read list. That was two years ago. I still plan on reading it, if I ever get to it. It is about a high school girl whose boyfriends (plural) leave her with their (the two of them) dogs. So she is ranting about how they left her with three dogs or something. She just wants a good boyfriend. The book starts out with her walking into a diner a soaking wet prom dress and her three dogs in tow. It is a romance novel, so be warned, guys. I just thought it was interesting. Read the rest of this entry →
The simple, yet gorgeous, cover of The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her “power” to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes that the dead leave behind in the world… and the imprints that attach to their killers.
Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find the dead birds her cat had tired of playing with. But now that a serial killer has begun terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he’s claimed haunt her daily, she realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.
Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet on her quest to find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved to find herself hoping that Jay’s intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she’s falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer… and becoming his prey herself. (Goodreads)

The Excellent Book Cover of Exiled by J. R. Wagner!
James has never known an ordinary life. As long as he can remember, he and his family have been on the run—moving from place to place, never settling down, never growing roots. Now, just when he’s on the brink of manhood, the very thing his family has been trying to prevent tears him from all he has ever known and thrusts him into a place where he is powerless and alone.
Bent on finding a way back, James must brave a place reserved for the worst of his kind. He quickly learns that the land itself poses a greater threat than its inhabitants and if he is to have any chance of returning, he must work with the very people he’s been raised to fear.
James has known magic since just after he was born. As a sorcerer, his skills are exceptional yet when he wakes in The Never, his abilities are gone. Armed with nothing but determination and the will to survive, he braves a land wrought with dangers, mysteries and temptations meant to ensnare both body and mind and prevent escape forever.
