On My Wishlist (10) / Waiting on Wednesday (Jan 27)

On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City that allows us to share the books we haven't bought yet but are waiting to be bought and devoured.

Title: Malice
Author: Chris Wooding
Genre: YA, Graphic Novel
Published: February 2, 2009

Everyone's heard of it, but nobody's read it...Seth and Kady have heard all the stories about MALICE - a secret comic about a strange and awful world full of traps and tricks, overseen by a sinister master of ceremonies, Tall Jake. But if rumors are to be believed, the children in this comic are real...

- This is getting me pumped up for my graphic novel/comic book appreciation month!

Title: Daughter of the Flames
Author: Zoë Marriott
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Published: February 10, 2008

What if your deadliest enemy were the only one who could save you?

Inside an ancient temple in the mountains, fifteen-year-old Zira trains in the martial arts to become a warrior priestess who can defend the faith of the Ruan people. Bearing a scar on her face from the fire that killed her parents, the orphaned Zira is taught to distrust the occupying Sedornes. Terror strikes when the forces of the tyrannical Sedorne king destroy the only home she knows. To survive, Zira must unravel the secrets of her identity, decide her people’s fate — and accept her growing feelings for a man who should be her enemy.

- How awesome is that cover? Fantastic.

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Possessed
Author: Kate Cann
Genre: Young Adult, Speculative Fiction - Ghost/Horror
Published: February 1, 2010

Rayne can't wait to start her summer job at a remote country mansion, far from the crowded, noisy London she so desperately wants to escape. But the retreat soon turns into a nightmare -- the mansion is creepy, the legends of ghosts keep Rayne up at night, and she doesn't feel safe anywhere.

Can Rayne figure out why she's so freaked -- before she becomes a ghost story herself?

How about you, what is on YOUR wishlist?

► Just to let you all know, as of next week "On My Wishlist" will be moving to Saturday per Book Chick City's changes to her blog. Not going to lie, I'm actually kind of excited because I'll finally have something to post every Saturday, haha. Happy Wednesday everyone! Expect my review for The Lonely Hearts Club tomorrow. :)
