Wishlist Books added in June

Some of the lovelies that made it onto my wishlist this past month

A Dream of Ice (Earthend Saga #2)
by Gillian Anderson and Jeff Rovin

Not gonna lie - I only ready book 1 because -- Gillian Anderson OMG I love her!!
It wasn't the best but I do want to see where this story goes.
Also - 'Saga' means...4 books? No idea if I'll stick with it to the end but book 2 made the cut.

Burning Kingdoms (The Internment Chronicles #2)
by Lauren DeStefano

I DEVOURERED book 1 (Perfect Ruin). It was a mixture of a lot of things that I love seeing in YA books and I'm pretty sure my next Kindle buy will be book 2.

On shelves now - from Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Their Fractured Light (Starbound #3)
by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner

OMG I loved loved loved the first 2 books in this series! I think I bought and read book 2 the day it came out -- so so good!

Ms. Marvel Vol 3: Crushed
by G. Willow Wilson

I picked up Vol 1 of these graphic novels in preparation of seeing G. Willow Wilson speak at this year's ACRL conference. I was really impressed with her presentation and her story telling.
It's been really hard waiting for the volume sets to come out but I love the way they look on my shelf :)

On shelves on - from Marvel Comics

Saga Vol 5
by Brian K. Vaughan

This comic series is NOT for children and it's pretty perfect. Sex, violence, drugs and a great story to back it all up. The illustrations are fabulous and I've totally fallen in love with everyone (even the bad guys...ESPECIALLY the bad guys ;)
This volume set is issues 25-30 and it's been seriously hard not picking up the single issues as they come out...I can wait a bit longer I guess.

Raging Sea (Undertow #2)
by Michael Buckley

If you follow me on Instagram (@WilowRaven) you may have seen my expressions of love for book 1, Undertow. It was so unlike anything I had read in a while and it's one of those books that stays with you a while.
I seriously can't believe that book 2 isn't out until NEXT YEAR!
Ga! Good things come to those who wait and all that jazz ;)

Killer Within (Killer Instinct #2)
by S.E. Green

So - book 1 actually freaked me out a bit. It was extremely dark - like Dexter dark. I pretty much loved it and the fact that the creepiest character of all was the one you're rooting for was an excellent bonus.
Oh! Oh! And the ending?! Maybe I should have seen it coming but I didn't and it was perfect.
I can see book 1 working as a stand alone but I'm also pretty excited for book 2 - a win win in my opinion.

On shelves now - from Simon Pulse
