On My Wishlist...




Seizure by Kathy Reichs
TBP: 10/18/2011
From Goodreads:
The second novel in the Virals trilogy from #1 bestselling author and inspiration for the TV series Bones-Kathy Reichs! 
Ever since Tory Brennan and her friends rescued Cooper, a kidnapped wolf pup with a rare strain of canine parvovirus, they've turned from regular kids into a crime-solving pack! But now the very place that brought them together-the Loggerhead Island Research Institute--is out of funding and will have to shut down. That is, unless the Virals can figure out a way to save it!
So when Tory learns of an old Charleston legend about a famous she-pirate, Anne Bonney, whose fortune was never found, she can't believe her luck--buried treasure is exactly what she needs to save the Institute on Loggerhead! Trouble is, she and her friends aren't the only ones looking for it. And this time, the Virals' special powers may not be enough to dig them out of trouble . . .
I loved that first book and I really want to read this one too!

Legacy by Molly Cochran
TBP: 12/20/2011
From Goodreads:
When her widowed father dumps 16-year-old Katy Jessevar in a boarding school in Whitfield, Massachusetts, she has no idea that fate has just opened the door to both her future and her past. Nearly everyone in Whitfield is a witch, as is Katy herself, although she has struggled all her life to hide her unusual talents. Stuck at a boarding school where her fellow students seem to despise her, Katy soon discovers that Whitfield is the place where her mother commited suicide under mysterious circumstances when Katy was just a small child. With dark forces converging on Whitfield, it’s up to Katy to unravel her family’s many secrets to save the boy she loves and the town itself from destruction.

  10. I had no idea Kathy Reichs had a YA paranormal series! How weird/awesome - she's such a terrific writer, I have to go look at this one.

    Legacy looks creepy, I sort of like the cover. It looks very gothic to me. Reminds me of a couple of music videos from the 80's - Sister Christian by Night Ranger and Runaway by Bon Jovi, lol.

    Hope you get to read these when they come out!
