On My Wishlist #5

WishlistOn My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It’s a meme where participants list books they want but haven’t actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.

Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor Akata Witch by Nnedi OkoraforTwelve-year-old Sunny lives in Nigeria, but she was born American. Her features are African, but she’s albino. She’s a terrific athlete, but can’t go out into the sun to play soccer. There seems to be no place where she fits. And then she discovers something amazing—she is a “free agent,” with latent magical power.

The Ghoul Next Door (Monster High #2) by Lisi Harrison The Ghoul Next Door by Lisi Harrison – Monster High book #2. I really enjoyed the first book. I am only mildly ashamed of this fact, but the premise is basically what would happen if the teenaged offspring of various Universal Monsters went to high school. What’s not to love about that?

Thief Eyes by Janni Lee Simner Thief Eyes by Janni Lee SimnerAfter her mother mysteriously disappears, sixteen-year-old Haley convinces her father to take her to Iceland, where her mother was last seen. There, amidst the ancient fissures and crevices of that volcanic island, Haley meets gorgeous Ari, a boy with a dangerous side who appoints himself her protector.

About April

I'm a librarian, reader, and writer whose main goal in life is to be able to swim in books the way Scrooge McDuck swims in money. Although my reading choices will always be wildly eclectic and I never plan on leaving any genre unexplored, my favorite reads tend to be Fantasy, Young Adult, Science Fiction, Gay Romance, or Historical Fiction. You can e-mail me at inspector[dot]librarian[at]gmail[dot]com.
