WishList (#6)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where I list all the books I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. It's also an event that you can join in with too - Mr Linky is always at the ready for you to link your own 'On My Wishlist' post. If you want to know more click here.

A little late today with my WishList. The reason is bad connection online 'cause earlier today I was outside 'cause it was hot and spent the day to read outside. And now it has been thundering and lightening in about two hours now. It's been this kind of weather in four days now.

I'm home alone at the moment but not scared - I love stormfull weather. I don't know why. It's just is my type of weather. I was sitting downstairs with my headphones on and listening to loud music. Then suddenly I heard one bang and then another one and I hear water splashing. At first I think it's burglars cming in my house and completely ruining it or something destroying the house or something. Sort of a disaster going on. I rip of my headphones to go upstairs to see and look outside the windows. And that most be the most heaviest rain I've ever seen. I couldn't even look through the windows because of all the water. And the thunder and the lightning would never end. It started about 2 hours ago and it doesn't rain that much but the thunder is really loud and there are always glimpses of lightning all the time. It's real tropical summerthunder or whatever to call it. But I've always liked that sound. It's cosy. And I'm finally back online. It logged me off on and off a while but now I hope I get to stay online.

Enough weather talk and back to my WishList!

Heart - Shaped Box by Joe Hill


Do you sleep with the light on? Are you in the habit of checking your doors and windows before you go to bed? Maybe even checking under your bed? If you are about to crack open Joe Hill's chilling thriller Heart-Shaped Box, you might want to rethink your nighttime habits--Hill's story about an aging rock star (with a penchant for macabre artifacts) who buys a haunted suit online will scare you silly.

Random Thoughts

You guys probably know that Joe Hill is son of Stephen King and if you know me, you know that I'm a huge fan of Stephen King and he's my fave author. I've never read anything by Joe Hill before. And I've always wanted to try one of his books especially this one. It sounds like a good read and the cover is really cool! Has anyone of yu read anything by Joe Hill and what did you think?


Wake by Lisa McMann


For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie's seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.
She can't tell anybody about what she does they'd never believe her, or worse, they'd think she's a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn't want and can’t control.
Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else's twisted psyche. She is a participant.

Random Thoughts

After seeing the trailer I really, really want it. It sounds good and exciting. The book has gotten mixed feedback but still I'm curious about this book. I mean, sneaking in someone elses dream. That's creepy!


Witches of east end by Melissa de la Cruz


From the author of the highly addictive and bestselling Blue Bloods series, with almost 3 million copies sold, comes a new novel, Melissa de la Cruz's first for adults, featuring a family of formidable and beguiling witches.

The three Beauchamp women--Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid--live in North Hampton, out on the tip of Long Island. Their beautiful, mist-shrouded town seems almost stuck in time, and all three women lead seemingly quiet, uneventful existences. But they are harboring a mighty secret--they are powerful witches banned from using their magic. Joanna can resurrect people from the dead and heal the most serious of injuries. Ingrid, her bookish daughter, has the ability to predict the future and weave knots that can solve anything from infertility to infidelity. And finally, there's Freya, the wild child, who has a charm or a potion that can cure most any heartache.

For centuries, all three women have been forced to suppress their abilities. But then Freya, who is about to get married to the wealthy and mysterious Bran Gardiner, finds that her increasingly complicated romantic life makes it more difficult than ever to hide her secret. Soon Ingrid and Joanna confront similar dilemmas, and the Beauchamp women realize they can no longer conceal their true selves. They unearth their wands from the attic, dust off their broomsticks, and begin casting spells on the townspeople. It all seems like a bit of good-natured, innocent magic, but then mysterious, violent attacks begin to plague the town. When a young girl disappears over the Fourth of July weekend, they realize it's time to uncover who and what dark forces are working against them.

With a brand-new cast of characters, a fascinating and fresh world to discover, and a few surprise appearances from some of the Blue Blood fan favorites, this is a page-turning, deliciously fun, magical summer read fraught with love affairs, witchcraft, and an unforgettable battle between good and evil.

Random Thougths

One word; Witches!! I love witches. My fave book as a kid was The Witches by Roald Dahl. I read it over and over and over again. I never got tired of it and I wached the movie several times also. And I also like the movie The Witches of Eastwick with my all time fave actor: Jack Nicholson! But I haven't read more books about witches the only one I can think of is a scary stories with Nancy Drew where she was hunting for witches. But since then I've always wanted to read books with witches in but couldn't find any. That's why I really want this book. The trailer is great and I just really want to get this book 'cause I want to read it so bad!
