On my wishlist this week..

On my wish list is hosted by Book Chick City.

The two books on my wishlist just happen to have big red dresses on the cover, I didn't plan it honest!

Grave Mercy
His Fair Assassin #1
Robin LaFevers
Publication date: 3rd April 2012

Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?

Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.

Ismae's most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?

I love how at first glance it's a girl with a big dress on the cover and then you look a little bit closer and realise she's wielding a big giant crossbow! I'm pretty intrigued by this blurb I think it sounds epic.

Wendy Higgins
Publication date: 1st May 2012

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences? This is life for sons and daughters of fallen angels in Sweet Evil.

Anna, a tender-hearted southern girl, was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage, and her will-power is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

A cross-country trip forces Anna and Kai to face the reality that hope and love are not options for their kind. When it's time for Anna to confront her demons, will she choose to embrace her halo or her horns
Yeah I know, another big red dress! Wouldn't it be amazing though if she actually chose her horns instead of her halo??


  1. I'm very curious about the first book, it sounds like an original story.

  2. Sweet Evil looks awesome and I really like the cover.

  3. Grave Mercy sounds really intriguing - and I love a heroine who can weild a cross bow!!
