On My Wishlist (5)

On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City, which will be posted every Saturday. It allows us to share the books we haven't bought yet but are dieing to buy and haunt us in our sleep. This wishlist it is a list of hope, and if you have the money then it is a shopping list! If you would like to take part and have your own 'On My Wishlist' post then you can find more info here. (This post was inspired by Kristi In My Mailbox at The Story Siren).

The Exorsistah by Claudia Mair Burney

She just wants a home, a hotie, and some kickin' boots.
Does she realy have to fight the devil to get them?
After the creep who''s married to her friend Kiki tries to assault her, Emme Vaughn finds herself in an all-night Walgreens at 3 a.m. with a quarter in her pocket and a rumble in her stomach. She sure does wish she''d gotten to eat her french fries before she had to kick and run. But God has his plan, and apparently tonight He means for her to whip some serious demon butt.
Ever since her mom went crazy, Emme''s been wary of the gift they share for seeing demons, but she''s not about to let one get to her. So when an ugly beast lurks into Walgreens behind a dude who''s clearly up to no good, Emme tells it exactly where it can go. Problem is, the beautiful guy beside her at the magazine rack just helped her conquer the nasty duo, and now he wants her to join a group of demon-fighters led by his father, an aging exorcist bombarded by requests to deliver people from evil. Shoot, and all she really hoped for was some breakfast.... (This summary was thanks to Chapters Indigo.Ca)

The Hunger Games By Suzanne Collins

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining 
Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the other districts in line by forcing them to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight-to-the-death on live TV. One boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and sixteen are selected by lottery to play. The winner brings riches and favor tohis or her district. But that is nothing compared to what the Capitol wins: one more year of fearful compliance with its rule. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her impoverished district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before?and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. Acclaimed writer Suzanne Collins, author of the New York Times bestselling Underland Chronicles, delivers equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance, in this stunning novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present.

Shiver By:Magie Stiefvater

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf - her wolf - is a haunting presence she can?t seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human -- until the cold makes him shift back again. Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It?s her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears and the temperature drops, Sam must fight to stay human or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

Zen and the Art of Vampires By Katie Macalister

Is it possible to love two vampires at the same time?
Pushing forty and alone, Pia Thomason heads to Europe on a singles tour, hoping to find romance. What she finds are two very handsome, very mysterious, and very undead men. And she learns that where vampires are concerned, love isn’t the only thing at stake. (Summary from Goodreads)

NIce picks! I like the cover colors for Shiver. The Hunger Games sounds really good, can't wait for the paperback release.

With the exception of Katie MacAlister's book are the rest YA? I've heard of Hunger Games, and heard nothing but good reviews, the others not so much. Here's mine.
