On My Wishlist.....*1*

On My Wishlist is a great event that Book Chick City runs every Saturday. It's where you list all of the books that you desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. I thought this was a great way to start off my blog.
     There  are 3 Main books that I have been itching to get my hands on, that for some reason everyone has read. 
Matched: Ally Condie

            Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.

I am so excited about this book. I read the first few chapters of this book online from Google preview and wow o wow its addicting. I never knew these dystopian style books would be of interest to me. After reading the Uglies trilogy and the Hunger Games, I figured this must be another great book. The reviews I read and heard have been nothing but the best. I just want to say I Love, Love, Love this cover. The way she's in a bubble and looking so beautiful. So excited about reading this one!

Nightshade: Andrea Cremer
Synopsis: Goodreads
         Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything— including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?

So can anyone say love triangle. I know everyone says they are tired of it but are you really? I don't think so, I know I am not! I'm excited about this book because Calla seems she is going to be that strong female protagonist that I really love in books. I am hoping she has Rose (from VA) about her. Everyone has been reviewing this book to be so amazing, that I have to see what the fuss is all about. I love this cover as well they did such an amazing job. I love how her eyes stand out.

The Iron King: Julie Kagawa
Synopsis: Goodreads
        Meghan Chase has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined…
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

I really want to get my hands on this book for many reasons. First: VampireBookClub raved about this book. I love and usually agree with the majority of their book reviews. But they had seemed to think this book was so good almost as good as Spirit Bound by  Richelle Mead.  That I find to be an amazing compliment, seeing as I love Richelle Mead's writing and hold the Vampire Academy Series to the highest regard. Aside from VampireBookClub, I really have heard amazing things about this book. I guess I just want to fall in love with Prince Ash!
