On My Wishlist (#18)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday.

I'm going to be adding three or more books that I have found and I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They could even be old, new or forthcoming novels.

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

I loved the summary and I just can't wait to read it!

Playing Hurt
Holly Schindler

Goodreads summary:

Star basketball player Chelsea "Nitro" Keyes had the promise of a full ride to college—and everyone's admiration back home. Then she took a horrible fall during senior year. Now a metal plate holds her together and she feels like a stranger in her own family.

That summer, Chelsea's dad hires Clint, a nineteen-year-old ex-hockey player and "boot camp" trainer, to work with her at a northern Minnesota lake resort. As they grow close, Chelsea finds that Clint's haunted by his own tragedy. Will their romance end up hurting them all over again—or finally heal their heartbreak?

This novel sounds awsome!

Killing Britney
Sean Olin

Goodreads summary:

Britney is the girl everyone loves to hate.

Ever since Britney transformed herself from freak-and-geek to the most popular girl at school, her life has been touched by tragedy. First it was her mom, who drowned on a family rafting trip. Then her hockey-star boyfriend, Ricky, was killed in a hit-and-run.

When the deaths continue to pile up, everyone fears for Britney. Sure she's popular, blond, and fabulous.

But is that enough reason for someone to want to...

kill her?

I have heard so many good things about this book and it looks and sound great!!!!

Cracked Up to Be
Courtney Summers

Goodreads summary:

Perfect Parker Fadley isn’t so perfect anymore. She’s quit the cheerleading squad, she’s dumped her perfect boyfriend, and she’s failing school. Her parents are on a constant suicide watch and her counselors think she’s playing games…but what they don’t know, the real reason for this whole mess, isn’t something she can say out loud. It isn’t even something she can say to herself. A horrible thing has happened and it just might be her fault. If she can just remove herself from everybody—be totally alone—then everything will be okay...The problem is, nobody will let her.


  1. Wow! All three of them sound interesting. The first one is definitely going to my TBR.
    My Wishlist

  2. These all sound like really good books. I really like to cover to Killing Britney, even though it's not the type of book I'd usually read.

    Feel free to check out what's on my wishlist this week.

  3. Here are ten more wishes. I add books to my list faster than I can either read them or blog about them!
