The Wish List (4)

What am I going to spend my summer waiting for?

Rebel Belle
Author: Rachel Hawkins
Series: ---
Release Date: 8 April 2014

Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.

Just when life can't get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she's charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper's least favorite person. But things get complicated when Harper starts falling for him--and discovers that David's own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.

The Glass Caskett
Author: McCormick Templeman
Series: ---
Release Date: 11 February 2014

Death hasn’t visited Rowan Rose since it took her mother when Rowan was only a little girl. But that changes one bleak morning, when five horses and their riders thunder into her village and through the forest, disappearing into the hills. Days later, the riders’ bodies are found, and though no one can say for certain what happened in their final hours, their remains prove that whatever it was must have been brutal.

Rowan’s village was once a tranquil place, but now things have changed. Something has followed the path those riders made and has come down from the hills, through the forest, and into the village. Beast or man, it has brought death to Rowan’s door once again.

Only this time, its appetite is insatiable.

The Lost
Author: Sarah Beth Durst
Series: ---
Release Date: 29 October 2013

Lost your way? Your dreams?

Yourself?

Welcome to Lost.

It was supposed to be a small escape. A few hours driving before turning around and heading home. But once you arrive in Lost...well, it's a place you really can't leave. Not until you're Found. Only the Missing Man can send you home. And he took one look at Lauren Chase and disappeared.

So Lauren is now trapped in the town where all lost things go-luggage, keys, dreams, lives-where nothing is permanent, where the locals go feral and where the only people who don't want to kill her are a handsome wild man called the Finder and a knife-wielding six-year-old girl. The only road out of town is engulfed by an impassable dust storm, and escape is impossible....

Until Lauren decides nothing-and no one-is going to keep her here anymore.



I've been waiting for ages for Rebel Belle to get a cover so I could properly include it in a Wish List post and damn, I was not disappointed! It's b-e-a-utiful.

What are you guys looking forward to?

  1. Lost sounds epic! I loved Durst's Ice and have been meaning to read Vessel.

  3. I am going to have to start boycotting trilogies -- even though I am writing one, irony, right? -- but I have so many books on my can't-wait list because they are continuations. My biggest priority right now is The Dream Thieves. I can't wait to see Blue come into her own. And now I am adding The Glass Casket. It sounds fantastic!

  4. Dang-kind of long waits for these! The Durst sounds really interesting and I hope to check out some of her other works while waiting for this one to be released.
