On My Wishlist (23)

Is a weekly book meme hosted by Cosy Books. Where we talk about the books that are currently on top of our wishlists. Old, new or yet to be released titles are all welcome.

I kissed a Ghoul by Michael McCarty
Publication Date: March 12th 2012
Genre: Paranormal
Pages: ebook 110


Never fear, Tommy Wharton is here. When you need help with ghosts, goblins and things that generally go bump in the night, I wouldn't be anywhere in sight.

I just found this this morning, because the author is following me on twitter (now I see twitter is actually fun and you get to meet new people- like him) plus, I just love the cover. I can't tell you the specifics why. It just looks fun and inviting for you to read it's story. Which, by the looks of the reviews, it's pretty good. So it goes on my wishlist.

Liquid Diet: A Vampire Satire by Michael McCarty
Publication Date: January 1st 2009
Genre: Paranormal
Pages: 180



INTERLUDE WITH THE VAMPIRE...As the blood-red sun sets over the Chicago skyline, vampire writer-and real life vampire-Andrew Bloodsworth makes his way into WOLF 99.9 FM, an all-night radio station hosted by the beautiful Bella Donna, Goth queen of the airwaves. As Bloodsworth reveals how he first became a vampire and the dark secrets and desires of the undead, listeners call in to talk to the undead writer.

Most of the listeners are vampire and horror enthusiasts who are overjoyed to talk to a real life vampire, but OTTO-the Opposition To The Occult, a religious right-wing organization-is also listening to the radio show-and they're not amused.

If that wasn't enough, tabloid TV host Harry Winger, who features equally outrageous guests on his program, wants Bloodsworth to appear on his show. Plus, The Amazing Kreskin, the world's foremost mentalist, has just had a premonition of imminent disaster. What will happen next? Tune in to find out
Another and it just sounds like fun. Seems very original too! Which, we all like, now don't we?
Love the cover for this one, too. However it was the title that brought me in. Doesn't it just sound good?
What's on your guy's wishlist this week? Would love to know.
Happy Easter Weekend Everybody!

The Scorch Trails by James Dashner
Publication Date: October 12, 2010
Genre: YA Dystopian
Pages: 360


Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one really knew what sort of life they were going back to.

In the Maze, life was easy. They had food, and shelter, and safety . . . until Teresa triggered the end. In the world outside the Maze, however, the end was triggered long ago.

Burned by sun flares and baked by a new, brutal climate, the earth is a wasteland. Government has disintegrated—and with it, order—and now Cranks, people covered in festering wounds and driven to murderous insanity by the infectious disease known as the Flare, roam the crumbling cities hunting for their next victim . . . and meal.

The Gladers are far from finished with running. Instead of freedom, they find themselves faced with another trial. They must cross the Scorch, the most burned-out section of the world, and arrive at a safe haven in two weeks. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.

Thomas can only wonder—does he hold the secret of freedom somewhere in his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED?
Read the first one, The Maze Runner, and liked it. That's pretty much why I want this one.
Happy Easter!
