My Wishlist (#10)

Every Saturday i'm going to be adding one or more books that I have found and I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. It's also an event that you can join in with too just comment me on what book you really want to see and then it could be on next weeks post!

This week we have some books that I found on Goodreads, Amazon and other places:

I love the summary and the cover is just beautiful!



Future Imperfect
K. Ryer Breese
Genre: young-adult
Goodreads

Goodreads summary:

Ade Patience can see the future. Pretty cool, right? But there’s one small problem. During his latest vision, he sees himself murdering a classmate from his high school.

When 17-year-old Ade Patience knocks himself nconscious, he can see the future. However, he’s also addicted to the high he gets when he breaks the laws of physics. And while he’s seen things he’s wanted to change, Ade knows The Rule: You can’t change the future, no matter how hard you try.

His memory is failing, his grades are in a death spiral, and
both Ade’s best friend and his shrink are begging him to stop before he kills himself. Luckily, the stunning Vauxhall Rodolfo recently transferred to his school and, just like Ade saw in a vision two years previously, they’re destined to fall in love. It’s just the motivation Ade needs to kick his habit. Only... things are a bit more complicated than that. Vauxhall has a powerful addiction of her own. And after a vision in which Ade sees himself murdering someone, he realizes he must break the one rule he’s been told he can’t.

Ade and Vauxhall must overcome their addictions and embrace their love for each other in order to do the impossible: change the future.

Darkness Becomes Her (Gods & Monsters #1)
Kelly Keaton
Genre: young-adult, paranormal
Goodreads

Goodreads summary:

Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.

Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.

She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.

Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

I found this on Goodreads a couple of weeks ago and I thought that it sounded fab, hopfully i'll have my own copie soon!



Siren (Siren #1)
Tricia Rayburn
Genre: young-adult, fantasy
Goodreads

Goodreads summary:

Seventeen-year-old Vanessa Sands is afraid of everything—the dark, heights, the ocean—but her fearless older sister, Justine, has always been there to coach her through every challenge. That is, until Justine goes cliff-diving one night near the family’s vacation house in Maine, and her lifeless body washes up on shore the next day.

Though her parents hope that they’ll be able to find closure back in Boston, Vanessa can’t help feeling that her sister’s death wasn’t an accident. After discovering that Justine was keeping a lot of secrets, Vanessa returns to Winter Harbor, hoping that Justine’s boyfriend might know more. But Caleb has been missing since Justine’s death.

Soon, it’s not just Vanessa who’s afraid. All of Winter Harbor is abuzz with anxiety when another body washes ashore, and panic sets in when the small town becomes host to a string of fatal, water-related accidents in which all the victims are found, horrifically, grinning from ear to ear.

Vanessa turns to Caleb’s brother, Simon, for help, and begins to find herself drawn to him. As the pair try to understand the sudden rash of creepy drownings, Vanessa uncovers a secret that threatens her new romance—and will change her life forever.

A seductive paranormal romance full of unexpected twists, Siren is certain to make a big summer splash.
