On my Wishlist

I will have two more reviews up shortly, but for now I would like to post some books from my wishlist. Some of you may have already read them and loved them (I'm so jealous), some of you may have not. But after reading this, you might add them to your wishlists too! :P

[1] Embrace: (The Violet Eden Chapters #1) by Jessica Shirvington
Synopsis: Violet Eden is dreading her seventeenth birthday dinner. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. The one bright spot is that Lincoln will be there. Sexy, mature and aloof, he is Violet’s idea of perfection. But why does he seem so reluctant to be anything more than a friend?
After he gives her the world’s most incredible kiss – and then abandons her on her front doorstep – Violet is determined to get some answers. But nothing could have prepared her for Lincoln’s explanation: he is Grigori – part angel and part human – and Violet is his eternal partner.
Without warning, Violet’s world is turned upside down. She never believed in God, let alone angels. But there’s no denying the strange changes in her body ... and her feelings for Lincoln. Suddenly, she can’t stand to be around him. Luckily, Phoenix, an exiled angel, has come into her life. He’s intense and enigmatic, but at least he never lied to her.

As Violet gets caught up in an ancient battle between dark and light, she must choose her path. The wrong choice could cost not only her life, but her eternity...

[2] Gifts of the Blood (Gifted Blood Trilogy #1) by Vicki Keire
Synopsis: Caspia Chastain, art student and barista, is gifted (or plagued, if you ask her) with the ability to draw the future, usually at the worst possible times. Her parents are four years dead; everyday she watches her brother Logan fight his cancer diagnosis. School, double shifts at work, art, and even her usually vibrant small town can't keep reality at bay.
Things get worse the day she draws an angry stranger surrounded by brilliant light and violent, bloody images. That exact same stranger walks up to her knowing all about her, including her name, her brother's illness, and her strange ability. When Caspia discovers that her hometown is a refuge for supernatural beings both Light and Dark, she and her brother find themselves caught up in a war between the two that predates their very birth. For protection, she turns to the man who walked out of her sketchbook calling himself Ethan.
But Ethan has his own agenda, Logan's getting sicker fast, and Caspia finds that drawing the future isn't the only strange thing she can do. Meanwhile, someone really wants all of them dead. In a town where Dark doesn't equal Evil and Light isn't always Good, Caspia and Ethan find themselves making strange alliances and even stranger sacrifices in order to protect those they love.

[3] The Dark Light of November by MJ Caraway
Synopsis: High school rocker, Jimmie Knight foresees others' misfortunes. But his inability to act on them has brought tragedy and plagued him his entire life. When his visions start up after a long absence, he is inexplicably drawn to Ember Grace, his crush, and their combined premonitions lead them to a soul seeking presence at the bottom of an abandoned ore pit.

[4] Balefire and Moonstone By Cynthia Gael
Synopsis: For Tommy Hopkins, rich and well-traveled, the idea of witches is ridiculous. When he turns nineteen, Tommy will be the new Witchfinder General, a line that stretches back to the original, Matthew Hopkins. The Witchfinder General directs WFG Ltd., the richest company on the face of the earth, providing clean, non-polluting power—though few know the power they sell is drained from witches.

[5] Gaunt Rainbow by Matthew Sawyer
Synopsis: Rainbow is cursed to drain life from living beings so that she remains in perfect health. As a girl, a self-proclaimed messiah, a pubescent boy, cured her blindness. Her curse began after the miracle, but the boy then vanished. Rainbow goes into the desert alone to find the errant messiah. She hopes he will remove her murderous curse.
