Wishlist Wednesday

Since I've put myself on a book ban, I had decided to limit my Wishlist items.   But since peer pressure is such a bitch, I had to make a post this week.  Curses go to all my TFFs (Twitter friends) that can't seem to stop reading or writing fab books and God forbid, tweeting about them.  And yeah, I am about to put you on blast for contributing to the weak mind of a book whore.  But first, the books...

Eternity And A Day by JA Saare writing as Aline Hunter
Dreading the one night per tide he’s forced to travel between the realms, Draigen Eric Locke has only one desire on Samhain – to retrieve the fae transporting daemon relics through the realms and escort her to the Dark Court to face the sidhe king. When he mistakenly recovers the wrong fae, the dragon under his skin responds in a way he never could have predicted, and he discovers he’s found the woman destined to him by the Fates – his Chosen.

Runa Charon is an anomaly among her kind, the mortal offspring of a human and a fae. Unlike other sidhe, she longs to experience pleasure instead of pain, love instead of lust. Immortally strong but mortally fragile, she’s been sheltered all of her life. When the opportunity to meet a Draigen from the Otherworld arises, she can’t resist the temptation and travels to meet the man who will change her destiny.

Unlike other netherworld creatures, Draigen mate for life, choosing to follow the path of their beloved mate in this reality or the next. Knowing a future can only span one lifetime, will they settle for less than an eternity? Or will they be grateful for the gift of each day? 

Comfort Food by Kitty Thomas
Emily Vargas has been taken captive. As part of his conditioning methods, her captor refuses to speak to her, knowing how much she craves human contact. He's far too beautiful to be a monster. Combined with his lack of violence toward her, this has her walking a fine line at the edge of sanity. Told in the first person from Emily's perspective, Comfort Food explores what happens when all expectations of pleasure and pain are turned upside down, as whips become comfort and chicken soup becomes punishment.

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
While other teenage girls daydream about boys, Calla Tor imagines ripping out her enemies' throats. And she wouldn’t have it any other way. Calla was born a warrior and on her eighteenth-birthday she’ll become the alpha female of the next generation of Guardian wolves. But Calla’s predestined path veers off course the moment she saves the life of a wayward hiker, a boy her own age. This human boy’s secret will turn the young pack's world upside down and forever alter the outcome of the centuries-old Witches' War that surrounds them all. 

Now, the accused... Wishlist books courtesy of the twisted tweets from @JASaare, @sparklybearsy, @andreacremer.  And extra curses go out to that never ending book hole @Netgalley that keeps tempting me with books I don't have to put on my wishlist!

5 Talk to me!:

I didn't know JA Saare had this alias. The Kitty Thomas book is waiting on my ereader, but I'm a bit reluctant to start this intense read.

And I have an award for you over at my place. I hope you like it. :)

YES! I'm SO excited for Nightshade! Isn't the cover gorgeous? Comfort Food also sounds really really interesting - definitely a unique premise!

I found your blog via the Hop! I see you're Team Damon - a girl after my own heart ;-) I miss Vampire Diaries! Is it September yet?

Thanx so much for the award!
JA Saare has some hot reads. She's new to me, but you should check her out.
The Kitty Thomas book, I am reluctant to read too, but it's getting rave reviews everywhere and I can't stay away for long.LOL!

@The Bookish Type
Yes the cover is gorgeous and the way people have been blogging about it, I thought it was already out (sad face).
I heard about Comfort Food from @sparklybearsy, so if she thinks it's good, I'll definitely give it a read.
And as for being Team Damon, I know I should root for the good guy, but Damon makes being bad look soooo good! I could care less about him in the book, but Ian is hot!!!

I've read both Eternity and a Day and Comfort Food. Both are excellent reads, and like you, I found them both over Twitter!

JA Saare is pretty funny over Twitter, and I've found that I am reading more authors outside of my usual sphere, because of their personalities and reader engagement online.

Comfort Food is intense and disturbing, but really well-written. And lends insight into something on the fringes of my comfort zone, in reality and in my reading habits.

I started out only doing paranormal romance, but now I'm all over the place! I've got two of JA Saare's books on my TBR list, now I'm thinking I need to go through her entire book list.
