On My Wishlist (5/8)
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Sixteen-year-old Evie's job is bagging and tagging paranormals. Possessing the strange ability to see through their glamours, she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. But when someone--or something--starts taking out the vamps, werewolves, and other odd beasties she's worked hard to help become productive members of society, she's got to figure it out before they all disappear and the world becomes utterly normal.
Normal is so overrated.
Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr
Seth never expected he would want to settle down with anyone—but that was before Aislinn. She is everything he'd ever dreamed of, and he wants to be with her forever. Forever takes on new meaning, though, when your girlfriend is an immortal faery queen.
Aislinn never expected to rule the very creatures who'd always terrified her—but that was before Keenan. He stole her mortality to make her a monarch, and now she faces challenges and enticements beyond any she'd ever imagined.
The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
A serial killer on the loose. A girl with a morbid ability. And the boy who would never let anything happen to her.
Violet Ambrose can find the dead. Or at least, those who have been murdered. She can sense the echoes they leave behind... and the imprints they leave on their killers. As if that weren't enough to deal with during junior year, she also has a sudden, inexplicable, and consuming crush on her best friend since childhood, Jay Heaton. Now a serial killer has begun terrorizing Violet's small town... and she realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.
Ever see a book cover and just have to own a book? That's the compulsion I felt the first time I looked at the unveiling of Paranormalcy. Plus, the main character works for an organization called International Paranormal Containment Agency. How can I resist? I'm also pushing Fragile Eternity (Wicked Lovely, #3) up on my wishlist since I've read Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange and am enjoying the interplay of faeries and humans. I can't wait to discover what lays within the pages of Fragile Eternity! I've also been reading fabulous reviews for The Body Finder and am anxiously awaiting my copy. I am definitely in the mood for this chilling novel.
