On My Wishlist (1)

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.

So a few books I'm adding to my wishlist, which I'm adding to my already over flowing wishlist, have been added to my actual Christmas wishlist I've typed up for my parents.

However, when David invites her to a music festival in England featuring their friend's band, she jumps at the chance for an overseas adventure. Hoping to surprise David, Rachel arrives at the festival early, where she runs into a nasty surprise of her own - she sees David kissing their friend Jo. Distraught, Rachel runs off, wishing she could leave her life behind...the next thing she knows, she's back with David. But not as herself...She's now in Jo's body! Can she keep the swap a secret from David until she can work out exactly what's going on and get her revenge? Over the course of a very weird weekend, Rachel puts herself in someone else's shoes and finds that her own maybe weren't as uncomfortable as she'd always thought. But can she ever be herself again? (From Amazon UK)

Can I just say how AMAZING this book sounds? They all do, but I SO can't wait for Swapped by a Kiss. I was looking forward to it anyway - more Jo, yay! - but this is the first time I've actually read what it's about, and oooh! It's going to be good! Especially as Luisa is a YA genius!

I don't want to wish my life away or anything, but these books' release dates can't come too soon! What's on your wishlist?
