On My Wishlist Saturday - April 30

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where I list all the books I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.

Other (Other #1)
Karen Kincy (Flux)
Publication Date: 7/1/2010
Genre: YA, paranormal, urban fantasy

Goodreads Summary:

Gwen Williams has been hiding a strange and fantastic secret: she's a shapeshifter. Although society may tolerate vampires, centaurs, and "Others" like Gwen, there are plenty of folks in her small Washington town who don't care for her kind.
When a new werewolf pack moves into the area, tensions rise—and Others start showing up dead, including someone close to Gwen. Despite the methodical murders, the police are ignoring evidence that suggests a serial killer. In the midst of terrible loss and danger, Gwen—along with a mysterious and sexy guy who happens to be a Japanese fox spirit—risks her life to find the murderer. But Gwen is already the killer's next target . . .

I really enjoyed this book, but I borrowed it from the library, so I still have to acquire my own copy. And I can't wait til Bloodborn (Others #2) comes out! ^_^

Hit List (Anita Blake Vampire Hunter #20)
Laurell K Hamilton (Berkley Hardcover)
Publication Date: 6/7/2011
Genre: paranormal, urban fantasy, shifters, vampires, erotica

 Goodreads Summary:

Word has leaked to Anita Blake that hit men are headed for St. Louis- and that she, Jean-Claude, and Richard are the targets.

I love this series - unfortunately the last few books have just been OK, so I'm hoping this book will pick up and make up for all of that.

Crossed (Matched #2)
Ally Condie (Dutton Juvenile)
Publication Date: 11/1/2011
Genre: YA, utopia

 Goodreads Summary:

In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky — taken by the Society to his certain death — only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

Cassia’s quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander — who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia’s heart — change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.

I loved Matched and am greatly looking forward to see how the rest of the story plays out between Cassia, Xander and Ky.
