Once again I forgot about posting last week, because I have been so busy with work. So this week I am going to post 2 books that are on my wishlist.
Wishlist Wednesday hosted by Pen to Paper is a book blog hop in which you post about one book per week that has been on your wishlist for a while or that was just recently added (entirely up to you) that you cannot wait to add to your shelves.
Wishlist # 1: Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz
For Ivy Jensen, it’s the eyes of a killer that haunt her nights. For Parker Bradley, it’s bloodthirsty sea serpents that slither in his dreams.
And for seven essay contestants, it’s their worst nightmares that win them an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at director Justin Blake’s latest, confidential project. Ivy doesn’t even like scary movies, but she’s ready to face her real-world fears. Parker’s sympathetic words and perfect smile help keep her spirits up. . . at least for now.
Not everyone is so charming, though. Horror-film fanatic Garth Vader wants to stir up trouble. It’s bad enough he has to stay in the middle of nowhere with this group—the girl who locks herself in her room; the know-it-all roommate; “Mister Sensitive”; and the one who’s too cheery for her own good. Someone has to make things interesting.
Except, things are already a little weird. The hostess is a serial-killer look-alike, the dream-stealing Nightmare Elf is lurking about, and the seventh member of the group is missing.
By the time Ivy and Parker realize what’s really at stake, it’s too late to wake up and run
Today I went to Barnes and Noble while my husband was at work and I saw this cover from across the store and I was like “OOOO What is this?” So, I went over picked it up read the synopsis and I was intrigued. Then I decided to read a couple of pages and put it down. So, as I continued to look around the store I could not get this book out of my head. I went back over picked it back up and started reading. Needless to say, I read 138 pages of it at the store. Now I want the book oh so badly. I was not able to purchase it today, but it is now on my birthday list. What I love about this book, thus far, is it is different from any book I have read, but it is something that everyone is familiar with. This book is like a campy horror movie (which is something I love). I am thinking that I have Thursday off from work that I may go back to Barnes and Noble and read a little more. Also, I thought this book was a stand alone book, it’s not!!! In the summer of 2015 the sequel will be released.
Wishlist # 2: The Queen of Zombie Hearts (White Rabbit Chronicles #3) By Gena Showalter
I have a plan.
We’ll either destroy them for good, or they’ll destroy us.
Either way, only one of us is walking away.
Alice ‘Ali’ Bell thinks the worst is behind her. She’s ready to take the next step with boyfriend Cole Holland, the leader of the zombie slayers; until Anima Industries, the agency controlling the zombies, launches a sneak attack, killing four of her friends. It’s then she realizes that humans can be more dangerous than monsters; and the worst has only begun.
As the surviving slayers prepare for war, Ali discovers she, too, can control the zombies and she isn’t the girl she thought she was. She’s connected to the woman responsible for killing and turning Cole’s mother. How can their relationship endure? As secrets come to light, and more slayers are taken or killed, Ali will fight harder than ever to bring down Anima even sacrificing her own life for those she loves
I have only read the first one and I absolutely loved it! I own the second one and I need to own the third book when it is released on September 30, 2014 (Not to far away!!!). I did a review for Alice in Zombieland earlier in my blog if you want to check it out. Be aware that it does contain a small amount of spoilers. Nothing major, but I know for some people it would spoil it for them. After I finish the book I am currently reading I am planing on reading the second book in the series so that I will be all caught up for the release of the third.
If anyone has read either of these books, please let me know what you thought in the comments below. Also, as always, I want to know what is on your wishlist! Leave me a comment letting me know!
