My wishlist: 
Entice by Carrie Jones
Publication date: December 14, 2010
Genre: YA paranormal

Summary from Goodreads:
Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever.
But that's not quite how things have worked out.

For starters, well, Nick is dead.
Supposedly, he's been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. But it's taking time, and meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day. An all-out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But how to get to Valhalla?

And even if Zara and her friends discover the way, there's that other small problem: Zara's been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn't just turned...she's Astley's queen.



I've read so many bad reviews for this series, but I love it. It's a light and easy read, and with the cliffy ending of Captivate, I've been itching to read this book.


Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Publication date: February 1, 2011
Genre: YA dystopia

Summary from Goodreads:

Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.



GAHHH! I've wanted to read this book for forever. The premise is original, and I've heard so many great things about it.


Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
Publication date: May 31, 2011
Genre: YA mythilogical paranormal

Summary from Goodreads:



How do you defy destiny?
Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.
As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.


I've been in love with this cover since the moment I saw it. It is just so beautiful. I also have a slight infatuation with mythology, therefore I knew that this book would be perfect for me. I've read a few reviews about it, and I feel like this is either a love-it-or-hate-it book. I hope that I read it and love it!
