On My Wishlist



Author: Richelle Mead
Release Date: Dec 7, 2010

Decription:
Murder. Love. Jealousy. And the ultimate sacrifice. Now, with Rose on trial for her life and Lissa first in line for the Royal Throne, nothing will ever be the same between them. 

 I have only read the first book in the Vampire Academy series, but for some reason the minute that I found out this one was coming out I wanted it. There is no method to my madness seeing I haven't read all the books leading up to this one yet, but I do have them on my Kindle so maybe it is the thought that I want to complete the series on my Kindle, in the off chance that I have a spur of the moment Richelle Mead hankering, I can read them all in one swoop.

Desription:
Dancia Lewis is far from popular. And that's not just because of her average grades or her less-than-glamorous wardrobe. In fact, Dancia's mediocrity is a welcome cover for her secret: whenever she sees a person threatening someone she cares about, things just...happen. Cars skid. Structures collapse. Usually someone gets hurt.  So Dancia does everything possible to avoid getting close to anyone, belieiving this way she can supress her powers and keep them hidden.
But when recruiters from the prestigious Delcroix Academy show up in her living room to offer her a full scholarship, Dancia's days of living under the radar may be over. Only, Delcroix is a school for diplomats' kids and child geniuses--not B students with uncontrollable telekinetic tendencies.  So why are they treating Dancia like she's special? Even the hottest guy on campus seems to be going out of his way to make Dancia feel welcome.
And then there's her mysterious new friend Jack, who can't stay out of trouble. He suspects something dangerous is going on at the Academy and wants Dancia to help him figure out what.  But Dancia isn't convinced. She hopes that maybe the recruiters know more about her "gift" than they're letting on. Maybe they can help her understand how to use it...But not even Dancia could have imagined what awaits her behind the gates of Delcroix Academy.
This book looks really good! I have read some reviews on it, which all seem very favorable. The description is awesome. I think the cover could have been better though... Its not very attractive in my opinion, but I suppose it goes back to, you can't judge a book by its cover... but it sure does help! Anyways I do believe that I will be picking up this book at some point... I just can't resist that description!

That is whats On My Wishlist this week... whats on yours?
