Wishful Thinking by Alexandra Bullen

Published January 1st 2011 by Point

If you could wish for a different life, would you? What if that life changed everything you thought was real?

Adopted as a baby, Hazel Snow has always been alone. She's never belonged anywhere--and has always yearned to know the truth about where she comes from. So when she receives three stunning, enchanted dresses--each with the power to grant one wish--Hazel wishes to know her mother. Transported to a time and place she couldn't have imagined, Hazel finds herself living an alternate life--a life with the mother she never knew.

Over the course of one amazing, miraculous summer, Hazel finds her home, falls in love, and forms an unexpected friendship. But will her search to uncover her past forever alter her future?

In the heart-pounding, luminous sequel to WISH, Alexandra Bullen asks the question: If you could wish for a new life....would you?


Wither by Lauren DeStefano
Hardcover, 356 pages
Published March 22nd 2011 
by Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing

 Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out. 

When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home. 

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant she trusts, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left. 


 Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley
Paperback, 304 pages
Published February 1st 2011 by HarperTeen

Corrinne Corcoran’s upscale Manhattan life is perfectly on track—until her father announces he’s been laid off and she’s shipped off to Broken Spoke, Texas, to live with her grandparents. All alone in a big public school and forced to take a job shoveling manure, Corrinne is determined to get back to the glamorous life she’s supposed to be living. But as she grudgingly adjusts—making new friends and finding romance along the way—this city girl begins to realize that life without credit cards and shopping sprees may not be as bad as it seems.... 

In this sparkling debut that flawlessly balances romance and humor, readers will grow to love sharp and sassy Corrinne as she goes on her totally reluctant but completely irresistible journey of self-discovery.


 Where She Went (If I Stay #2) by Gayle Forman
Hardcover, 208 pages
Published April 5th 2011 by Dutton Juvenile

It's been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future√Ďand each other.

Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance. 



Wolfsbane (Nightshade #2) by Andrea Cremer
Published July 12th 2011 by Philomel

Betrayal, loss, pain, fear. How many trials can love endure and still survive?






All the covers are breath taking, some are sequels and some are starts. On Wolfsbane thats the only "summary" that I could find. I haven't finished Nightshade yet, but I'm going to. Which ones are you looking forward to the most? My list would have to go somehow like this:

1. Wither
2. Wishful Thinking
3. Wolfsbane
4. Where She Went

  2. These all look great. I never would have guessed that Wish would get a sequel. I can't wait to read Wither either.

  4. I was lucky to read an ARC of Wither which was fantastic so you rightfully have that at the top :). Where I Belong is also on my TBR list and Where She Went sounds good but I'll have to check out If I Stay first.
