On My Wishlist...

Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep
TBP: Aug. 1, 2011

From Goodreads:
My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Acad­emy — a school of myths, magic and war­rior whiz kids, where even the lowli­est geek knows how to chop off somebody’s head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spar­tan guy in school, also hap­pens to be the deadliest.

But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jas­mine Ash­ton was mur­dered in the Library of Antiq­ui­ties. Then, some­one stole the Bowl of Tears, a mag­i­cal arti­fact that can be used to bring about the sec­ond Chaos War. You know, death, destruc­tion and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I’m deter­mined to find out who killed Jas­mine and why – espe­cially since I should have been the one who died...

Tris and Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison
TBP: Oct. 11, 2011

From Goodreads:
(UNOFFICAL description, subject to alteration)

A modern retelling of the German legend "Tristan and Isolde", "Tris and Izzy", is about a young witch named Izzie who is dating Mark King, the captain of the basketball team and thinks her life is going swimmingly well. Until-- she makes a love potion for her best friend Brangane and then ends up taking it herself accidentally, and falling in love with Tristan, the new guy at school. 

I've always loved Tristan and Isolde more than Romeo and Juliet... so I'm really curious about this retelling.

  1. Enthralled has a couple of my favourite authors featured so I definitely want to try it!Touchg of Frost sounds good as well...but I really should try her Gin series as well! Good choices this week - as always! ;-)

  2. I think Enthralled looks really good! And, I've decided that the chick on your header is going to be one of my next tattoo's! Minus the dog, but I'm in love with her.

  3. I couldn't agree more with your choices Melissa! I am totally on a boarding school/ academy kick right now where students go to hone their magical abilities so "Touch of Frost" is right up my alley!

  4. Tris & Izzie is on my wishlist too! I love original story and the cover is amazing!

  5. All of these look like good "diversions." Love your springy background!

  6. I can't wait to read Tris and Izzie. And that cover is beyond amazing.
