Fins Are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs
Publication Date: June 28th 2011
Genre: YA Fantasy
Pages: 262


On Lily Sanderson’s eighteenth birthday she’ll become just a girl—still a mergirl, true, but signing the renunciation will ink Princess Waterlily of Thalassinia out of existence. That leaves plain old Lily living on land, dating the boy she loves, and trying to master this being-human thing once and for all.

Now that Lily and Quince are together, mer bond or not, she’s almost content to give up her place in the royal succession of Thalassinia. But just when she thinks she has everything figured out, the waves start to get rough. Lily’s father sends a certain whirlpool-stirring cousin to stay with her on land. What did Doe do to get herself exiled from Thalassinia and stuck in terraped form, when everyone knows how much she hates humans? And why why why is she batting her eyelashes at Lily’s former crush, Brody?

The seafoam on the raging surf comes when a merboy from Lily’s past shows up—Tellin asks Lily for something that clouds her view of the horizon. There’s a future with Quince on land, her loyalty to the kingdom in the sea, and Lily tossing on the waves in the middle. Will she find a way to reconcile her love, her duty, and her own dreams?

I just adored the first one, Forgive My Fins, and I can't wait to post a review for it. Reading the ending and the little tease of this book makes me crave for it badly. However I all ready bought my books for the month. So I guess I'll just have to get it from the library. Woohoo, actually. Saves me money.

Anyways, I love the covers of the series. They are all goergous and I love the light hearted fun story lines Miss. Childs writes. Can't wait to dive in.

Intangible by J Meyers
Publication Date: January 31st 2012
Genre: YA Paranormal
Pages: 318


Twins Sera and Luke Raine have a well-kept secret—she heals with a touch of her hand, he sees the future. All their lives they’ve helped those in need on the sly. They’ve always thought of their abilities as being a gift.

Then Luke has a vision that Sera is killed. That gift they’ve always cherished begins to feel an awful lot like a curse. Because the thing about Luke’s ability? He’s always right. And he can’t do anything about it.

I loved the short story she has out on amazon for free, Intuition (review to come). It gives you a taste of her writing and a taste of what's to come from this book. Everything about it screams my name so I can't wait to get my hands on it one day.

What's on your wishlist?

Happy Weekend Everybody!
