On My Wishlist! 23/04/11


It is worth mentioning before I do my post that it is my birthday in 9 days, meaning these books will most likely be preordered 2nd May! (Just saying!)


Stealing Phoenix:
Joss Stirling
Release Date: 1/10/11
Genre: Paranormal YA
Sequel to Finding Sky!




What do you do when your soulmate turns out to be a thief? Steal her, of course. Phoenix was raised within the Community, a gang of thieves with paranormal powers, under the control of a harsh master known as the Seer. The notion that there's a soulmate out there for every person with a paranormal gift is mere myth in Phoenix's world. That is until the Seer gives Phoenix the details of her next target, Yves Benedict. He's more than just her next victim, he is her destiny. To be together, Phoenix must break away from the Community but resistance against the Seer puts them both in mortal danger. Phoenix has never trusted anyone before, now it's time to trust Yves with her life.





Starcrossed
Josephine Angelini
Release date: 31/5/11
Genre: paranormal/historical YA


How do you defy destiny?
Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it’s getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she’s haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they’re destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.
As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.

  1. Hawaiian history and culture is another interest of mine. So when I saw a review of this book pop up on Twitter, I had to click through and read it. The book sounds good. Come see which book I'm wishing for.

  3. Stealing Phoenix sounds really good but neither it nor Finding Sky are available in the US. Now I know a very, very, very tiny bit how frustrating it feels for everyone overseas when you can't get your hands on things as quickly.

    Hope you can read these soon (and happy birthday a little early).
