On My Wishlist (2)

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

Author: Amy Huntley
Publisher: Harper Teen

Madison Stanton doesn't know where she is or how she got there. But she does know this—she is dead. And alone, in a vast, dark space. The only company she has in this place are luminescent objects that turn out to be all the things Maddy lost while she was alive. And soon she discovers that with these artifacts, she can reexperience—and sometimes even change—moments from her life.
Her first kiss.
A trip to Disney World.
Her sister's wedding.
A disastrous sleepover.
In reliving these moments, Maddy learns illuminating and sometimes frightening truths about her life—and death.
This is a haunting and ultimately hopeful novel about the beauty of even the most insignificant moments—and the strength of true love even beyond death.

Books in Series:
The Hunger Games


  1. Hah, I just put Hunger Games on my On My Wishlist for this week. XD

    I've heard good things about The Everafter and it is one I'd like to check out too. I have, however, read My Soul To Take and I quite enjoyed it. :)

  2. I've read the last two books. Great books, especially Catching Fire.

    And I just got The Ever After recently. :)

  3. Catherine - Oh, The Hunger Games is amazing! And I am SO looking forward to reading My Soul to Take; I love Rachel Vincent's Shifters series, so I'm excited for her YA series! And The Everafter looks amazing!

    Jessica - Oh, awesome! I'm so looking forward to reading them all!

  4. I really, really wanna read The Everafter and Hunger Games!

  5. So do I! The sound so good!

  6. Great books on your wishlist this week! I have The Hunger Games on my wishlist too and My Soul To Take I received last week for review. Like the cover of The Everafter!

  7. Book Chick City - Awesome! That's not actually The Hunger Games but Catching Fire - for some reason, the UK cover has the first book's title on as well. Perhaps to show it's part of the same series? But The Hunger Games was awesome, so I'm really looking forward to reading this one! I am so jealous of you receiving My Soul To Take for review! I just love Rachel Vincent! The Everafter does have a real pretty cover, I love it!

  8. The first 2 sound great! I recently added My Soul To Take to my wishlist as well. And I can't say enough good things about The Hunger Games/Catching Fire!

    Happy reading!

  9. Nikki - I am SO excited to read My Soul to Save, I LOVE Rachel Vincent, she's just awesome! I am also excited for Catching Fire, that book can be nothing but amazing!

    Juju - The Hunger Games was amazing! That is Catching Fire, though. It seems the UK publishers want to make it perfectly clear that it's a The Hunger Games sequel, lol.

  10. Hunger games is awesome can't wait for book three and the movie!


  11. There's going to be a movie?! I didn't know that! How awesome! I'm so looking forward to reading the next book! :)

  12. I've read all three of these and liked or loved them all. Enjoy!

  13. Ohh, awesome! Glad to hear they're great! Can't wait to read them!
