~ On MY wishlist ~

There are numerous books I would love to read, so that my wishlist should be called wishbook instead! But I want to present only two of those numerous books on my Wishlist so I've got many many more weeks of wishlists and great books to present :) 

Here is #1 

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn &David Levithan

Sounds like a fun read  for the upcoming holidays! Romantic and dreamy...

“I’ve left some clues for you.
If you want them, turn the page.
If you don’t, put the book back on the shelf, please.”

So begins the latest whirlwind romance from the New York Times bestselling authors of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. But is Dash that right guy? Or are Dash and Lily only destined to trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York? Could their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions? Or will they be a comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?

And #2 

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1) by Richelle Mead 

Am always interested in new YA fantasy reads circling around vampires and as many are already fans of this series, I thought  it'd be time to put it on my wishlist aswell.

Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .

Summary by Goodreads


  1. I have Vampire Academy on my TBR pile - I love her Succubus series so looking forwrad to reading it soon. Hope you get these books soon!

  2. Dash and Lily's sounds charming! Adding it to my TBR pile! :)

  3. I have Dash & Lily on my TBR list too! Looks good. Hope you get to read these soon :)

  4. I have Ten Ways to be Adored when Landing a Lord by Sarah MacLean as well as the future Sabrina Jeffries on my list (not due out for 2 months). I just finished reading Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake and loved it! It was so refreshing that I am anxious to read another by this author.

  5. I love Richelle Mead's writing; she makes me feel like I know her characters in real life, lol. Her Georgina Kincaid series is reeally good too. I think you'll like it. I almost bought Dash and Lily today but need to wait till next payday :-s It's such a pretty cover and intriguing premise though, so I was tempted.
    Hope u get em both soon!
