It has been a while since the last time I did a wishlist wednesday. However, I am excited to get back at it and try to be more active on my blog with these sort of things. 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.

Red Queen by  Victoria Aveyard

Synopsis: The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.

To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.

Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of
those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.

But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?

Wishlist Wednesday # 6

This week for my wishlist Wednesday I am going to do two book once again. However, these two books are apart of the same series.

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: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

the5thwaveSynopsis: After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker.

Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

This book has been on my wishlist for the better part of the year. I keep eyeing it at the store, but for some reason I have yet to buy it. Since the second book is coming out soon I better get to it.

 

Wishlist # 2 : The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

Infinite seaSynopsis: How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.

I am so intrigued by the idea of the first book that I need to get my hands on the second one.

As always I want to know which book or books made your wishlist, so let me know in the comments below. Also, if you have read either of these books let me know your thoughts.

This book has been on my wishlist for a little while now. It was not until a few months ago that I even knew that this book existed.I found out about these books through Book tube and I thank them for it.  I absolutely LOVE these covers (I hate the paper back covers, but the hardcover covers are AMAZING!).

Wishlist Wednesday # 3

Hey guys! I forgot about doing wishlist Wednesday last week. So, this week I am going to post two 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: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder3_1Synopsis: Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

Cinder has been on my wishlist for a while now. I do own a copy of this on my e-reader and still have not read it. I would love to own the hardcover physical copies of these books. I am in love with the covers of this series.

Wishlist # 2 Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Lani Taylor

daughterofsmokeandboneSynopsis: Around the world, black hand prints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherworldly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”; she speaks many languages–not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.

When one of the strangers–beautiful, haunted Akiva–fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

This has been on my wishlist for a while now as well. It is the same thing. I own it on my e-reader and have yet to read it. I am in LOVE with these covers. Though I do like the U.K. covers. I would love to own physical hardcover copies of these books.

Overall, I have heard nothing but good things about both of these books (as well as the series as a whole) and I am so excited to read both. Since my birthday is right around the corner I am hoping that my husband and or my family will buy me both of these series in its entirety. We shall see. If any of you have read any of these books please let me know what you think. Also, let me know what is on your wishlists in the comments below.
