On My Wishlist (21)

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 - Mr Linky is always at the ready for you to link your own 'On My Wishlist' post. Want to know more? Click here

I'm guessing you all heard of James Patterson. I've only read one of his books, The dangerous days of Daniel X, and currently reading Witch and Wizard. Both of which I like. I also got his book The Angel Experiment. Well, the two books on my wishlist this week are two of his.

The Gift (Witch and Wizard #2) by James Patterson and Ned Rust
Publication Date: December 13, 2010
Genre: YA Fantasy
Pages: 320


Whit and Wisty have established themselves as leaders of the Resistance, willing to sacrifice anything to save kids kidnapped and brutally imprisoned by the New Order. But the One has other plans in store for them: He needs Wisty, for she is "The One Who Has the Gift."

Daniel X: Watch the Skies (Daniel X #2) by James Patterson and Ned Rust
Publication Date: June 15, 2010
Genre: YA Science Fiction  
Pages: 288


Alien Hunter Daniel X thought he'd seen it all. But there's no business like show business, and Number Five on his list of deadly targets is the most appalling criminal yet. An intergalactic television producer, he's orchestrated--literally--a reality show featuring the extermination of the human race...and Daniel finds himself cast in the lead role of the terrifying season premiere

Indies again <3
Airborne (Airborne Saga #1) by Constance Sharper
Publication Date: March 28th 2011
Genre: YA Fantasy
Pages: 318


Avery knew she had a knack for attracting trouble, but even she is shocked when a six-foot-something harpie shows up on her doorstep. Coping with the existence of a mythological race? Okay. Unwittingly finding herself in the middle of a vicious harpie conflict? A little less okay. Having to rely on an arrogant harpie boy who gets under her skin? Now that is something Avery isn't sure she can handle.

Freakin' Harpies! Hell yeah! I have yet to read any books with harpies and me personally would love to see some new mythical creatures out there in the young adult world.
An Apple For Zoƫ The Forsaken (The Forsaken #1) by Thomas Amo
Publication Date: February 10th 2011
Genre: Mystery
Pages: 319


Some Murders Shouldn't Be Investigated

The City of San Francisco is locked in a grip of fear. A series of occult murders has led, Inspector Thomas James, to a crime scene similar to a murder committed 90 years ago in the once grand Aleris Hotel. A place where power barons of the early 20th Century engaged in witchcraft. And silent film stars indulged in the most wicked of sins.

A place where no one questions the black smoke that rises from the hotel's incinerators in the middle of the night.

Happy Weekend Everybody!
