On My Wishlist.....*2*

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. 

Firelight: Sophie Jordan
Synopsis: Goodreads

    Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.
Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away—if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.
Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.

I have heard so many wonderful things about this book.First let's talk about the cover it's so beautiful. I've heard the main character is awesome and they might even make it into a movie. Plus it's a new creature in YA. So excited!!!

Hush Hush: Becca Fitzpatrick
Synopsis: Goodreads
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along. 
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. 
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.

I am really excited about this title for many reasons. One in majority is because Iv'e  seen this book being compared to Lauren Kate's Fallen and read so many blogs saying one is better than the other and I guess I want to make my own decision. Also I am excited because aside from The Mortal Instrument & Fallen I haven't  read that many books about angels.

Halo: Alexandra Adornetto
Synopsis: Goodreads
Three angels- Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, the youngest and most human- are sent by Heaven to bring good to a world falling under the influence of darkness. They must work hard to conceal their luminous glow, superhuman powers, and, most dangerous of all, their wings, all the while avoiding all human attachments.

Then Bethany meets Xavier Woods, and neither of them is able to resist the attraction between them. Gabriel and Ivy do everything in their power to intervene, but the bond between Xavier and Bethany seems too strong. The angel’s mission is urgent, and dark forces are threatening. Will love ruin Bethany or save her?

To begin wow oh wow on the cover I love it so much!!!! Beautiful is not even the world. I have heard many mixed reviews. Some people didn't really like it and what not but I just have to read it. I know im judging a book by it's cover but wow what a cover. And strangely enough I really like the authors name. I have always loved names that start with As.
