Every Once in a while, I'm gonna post some books that I really want! I know this list could go on and on and on, but I'm using the TOP Teens Books from Chapters.Indigo.ca and other random sites and well, here it goes. (Brace yourself, it could be pages long...actually knowing me, it will)

Pegasus by Robin McKinley

Because of a thousand-year-old alliance between humans and pegasi, Princess Sylviianel is ceremonially bound to Ebon, her own pegasus, on her twelfth birthday. The two species coexist peacefully, despite the language barriers separating them. Humans and pegasi both rely on specially-trained Speaker magicians as the only means of real communication.

But it’s different for Sylvi and Ebon. They can understand each other. They quickly grow close—so close that their bond becomes a threat to the status quo—and possibly to the future safety of their two nations.
I mean seriously, LOOK AT THE COVER. What does this show about me? that's right, I JUDGE BOOKS BY THEIR COVERS. And so far, it's worked out for me. Gosh and I love Greek Mythology btw :D. Do YOU knows any good Greek Mythology books? leave a recommendation in the comments.

The Daughters by Joanna Philbin
The only daughter of supermodel Katia Summers, witty and thoughtful Lizzie Summers likes to stick to the sidelines. The sole heir to Metronome Media and daughter of billionaire Karl Jurgensen, outspoken Carina Jurgensen would rather climb mountains than social ladders. Daughter of chart-topping pop icon Holla Jones, stylish and sensitive Hudson Jones is on the brink of her own music breakthrough. By the time freshman year begins, unconventional-looking Lizzie Summers has come to expect fawning photographers and adoring fans to surround her gorgeous supermodel mother. But when Lizzie is approached by a fashion photographer that believes she's "the new face of beauty," Lizzie surprises herself and her family by becoming the newest Summers woman to capture the media's spotlight.
I really wanna read this book, especially since it was a nominee for the Teen Read Awards...although it didn't win. It seems interesting though, I mean, I loved Secrets of My Hollywood Life by Jen Calonita. It should be something like that...I hope.

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
Nora should have know her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.
The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine? And what is Rixon hiding?
Oh. My. God. If You don't know how much I loved the first book Hush, Hush...then read the review here. It was amazing. Beyond that actually. and LOOK at the cover! Both covers are equally stunning and the grey makes it even MORE so. Love Love LOVED it and will love it 4eva! cannot WAIT till I get my hands on that book...who has read the book here?? tell me how you found it in the comments. Was it as good as the first book??

The Fledgling Handbook 101 by PC Cast
Merry meet, fledgling.  I trust this guide will serve you well… Every vampyre fledgling who arrives at the House of Night receives a copy of The Fledgling Handbook 101 , and now, fans can have one, too, with this gorgeous must-have edition.  Inside you’ll find original stories, the complete vampyre history, inside info into rituals, vamp biology, and the Change, and much more.
I just kinda wanna read this book for fun. The House of Night Books were pretty good. Cannot WAIT for the release of Awakened (look below...it's also on the wishlist) and read a review on Tempted here. The books are okay, this should be fun-ish and I'm sure my friend has already grabbed a copy...she is such a House of Night (GO TEAM STARK!) Fan :P

Halo by Alexandra Adornetto
Three angels are sent down to bring good to the world:
- Gabriel, the warrior;
- Ivy, the healer;
- Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio.
But she is the most human, and when she is romantically drawn to a mortal boy, the angels fear she will not be strong enough to save anyone—especially herself—from the Dark Forces.
Is love a great enough power against evil?
Oh My God, again, seriously, what is with the covers these days?? they're so attracting and no wonder they become bestsellers. sheesh, who ever designs the covers must be getting a fortune.
Anyway, it seems to be kinda like Hush, Hush in a sense with the Angel thing again (that's what I love about Supernatural/Paranormal Romance...it's not NORMAL). What are your fave supernatural/paranormal romance books? COMMENT!

Zombie vs. Unicorns by Various Authors
It's a question as old as time itself: which is better, the zombie or the unicorn? In this anthology, edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier (unicorn and zombie, respectively), strong arguments are made for both sides in the form of short stories. Half of the stories portray the strengths--for good and evil--of unicorns and half show the good (and really, really bad-ass) side of zombies. Contributors include many bestselling teen authors, including Cassandra Clare, Libba Bray, Maureen Johnson, Meg Cabot, Scott Westerfeld, and Margo Lanagan. This anthology will have everyone asking: Team Zombie or Team Unicorn?
I have read books by Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments), Libba Bray (The Gemma Doyle Trilogy), Meg Cabot (All Her Books) and Scott Westerfeld (Uglies). I. Cannot. WAIT. to get this book! I love how they put a whole bunch of stories by authors that everyone loves in one book! It's like a dream come true!! Which of these authors do you like?

Awakened by PC and Kristen Cast

At the start of Awakened, the pulse-pounding eighth installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey has returned, mostly whole, from the Otherworld to her rightful place as High Priestess at the House of Night. Her friends are just glad to have her back, but after losing her human consort, Heath, will Zoey - or her relationship with her super-hot Warrior, Stark - ever be the same? Stevie Rae is drawn even closer to Rephaim, the Raven Mocker with whom she shares a mysterious and powerful Imprint, but he is a dangerous secret that isolates her from her school, her red fledglings, and even her best friends. When the dark threat of Neferet - who is coming closer and closer to achieving her twisted goal of immortality - and Kalona returns, what will it take to keep the House of Night from being lost forever, and what will one desperate girl do to keep her heart from being irreparably broken?
I know when the time comes, I will eventually bring myself to read these books. The last book, Burned, was pretty boring. I just hope that this book will be with much more action...

The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong

First book in the new series by Kelley Armstrong meant as a follow up of her Darkest Powers trilogy.

Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can’t find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students—for every grade from kindergarten to twelve.
Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya's determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya's home, and they won’t go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts getting negative vibes from certain people and things. It doesn't help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret—and he's interested in one special part of Maya's anatomy: Her paw-print birthmark.
When I finished the Darkest Powers trilogy, I was really sad...cause I didn't want it to end! but the Kelley Armstrong is writing another teen series! I could not believe my eyes... that ten million fireflies XD jks. Anyway, I couldn't believe it when I saw that she's writing these books :) so maybe not all good things come to an end... okay. Enough with me and my song references...
Angel by James Patterson
In the seventh book in the bestselling series, evil scientists are still trying to convince Max that she needs to save the world, this time by providing the genetic link in speeding up the pace of evolution. Worse, they're trying to convince her that her perfect mate is Dylan, the newest addition to the flock. The problem is that, despite herself, Max is starting to believe it. Fang travels the country collecting his own gang of evolved humans, but the two separate flocks must unite to defeat a frightening doomsday cult whose motto is Save the Planet: Kill the Humans. And this time, the true heroine, for once, might just be little Angel.
OMG!!! I luvvvved this book! The last book was kinda sad...with Fang leaving :( I mean, he was soooo amazing, sigh...loved him. Anyway, these books are so action-packed and really fast-paced and I love the fact that even GUYS love and read these books. This is a perfect book for everyone :D So girls out there, are u Fangalicious? jks, got that from the blog sometime ago XD. OH, btw, I have a review on The Angel Experiment, the first book of the Maximum Ride series, so click here to read it!
The Lying Game by Sara Shepard
Foster kid Emma Paxton has only just discovered Sutton Mercer, the wealthy twin sister she never knew she had, when Sutton drops off the face of the earth, asking Emma to cover for her at home, school, and with her friends—just for a few days. At first Emma enjoys trying on her sister’s fabulous life: her fiercely loyal friends, her adoring boyfriend, her close-knit family. But as Emma is drawn deeper into Sutton’s world she finds the friends are not so fabulous, the boyfriend is not who she wants to be with, and the family is clinging to long-buried secrets and a veneer of functionality. And worst of all, Sutton may not be coming back. In fact, someone may have made sure she never could…and that someone knows Emma is not who she claims to be. Emma will need all her wits to survive The Lying Game.
One of the best books I've ever read, by an AMAZING author, Pretty Little Liars was suspenseful, cliff-hanging and left everyone for more. When Wanted, the last book came out, Shepard announced a new series: The Lying Game. It seems as promising and Ohmygod I CANNOT WAIT TILL THIS BOOK COMES OUT!!! I just hope its AS suspenseful....and isn't that cover gorgeous?? yeah, i thought so too. Read a review on Pretty Little Liars here and Flawless, the second book, here.

Matched by Ally Condie
In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.
Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s barely any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one . . . until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.
This seems pretty intense. Kinda like the Pretties series or The Hunger Games trilogy (wasn't the trilogy amazing?? luved it!), in a sense that it seems to be based in the future – a post apocalyptic book. It sound interesting and again, with my cover thing, it makes me wanna read it even more.

Ash by Malinda Lo

Cinderella retold In the wake of her father's death, Ash is left at the mercy of her cruel stepmother. Consumed with grief, her only joy comes by the light of the dying hearth fire, rereading the fairy tales her mother once told her. In her dreams, someday the fairies will steal her away, as they are said to do. When she meets the dark and dangerous fairy Sidhean, she believes that her wish may be granted. The day that Ash meets Kaisa, the King's Huntress, her heart begins to change. Instead of chasing fairies, Ash learns to hunt with Kaisa. Though their friendship is as delicate as a new bloom, it reawakens Ash's capacity for love-and her desire to live. But Sidhean has already claimed Ash for his own, and she must make a choice between fairy tale dreams and true love. Entrancing, empowering, and romantic, Ash is about the connection between life and love, and solitude and death, where transformation can come from even the deepest grief.
I love fairy retellings. It's amazing how so many different variations can come from one simple story...and one that's read to children to night! There are so many different variations I've read, like The Poison Apples by Lily Archer which can kinda be based on Cinderella as well, and Snow White. One of the best authors who has done several fairy tale retellings would be Gail Carson Levine, best known for Ella Enchanted. Her book Fairest is an AMAZING retelling of Snow White and it was sooo good. READ IT!

Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter
When Cammie Morgan enrolled at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, she knew she was preparing for the dangerous life of a spy. She just didn’t know that life would start during her junior year of high school. But that’s exactly what happened two months ago when Cammie faced off against a mysterious organization called the Circle of Cavan. Now, even Cammie “The Chameleon” can’t hide. Danger has followed her to London where she discovers a trusted ally has been labeled a rogue operative. The Gallagher Girls quickly realize that the Circle’s agents are closer than they’d ever feared—maybe even within Gallagher Academy’s own walls. History of Espionage takes on an entirely new meaning as Cammie and her friends go looking for answers, recognizing that the key to Cammie’s future may lie deep in the past.
I know, I know, I KNOW. I've been wanting to get this book for ages, but IT'S NEVER THERE. I can never seem to read it :( sad rite?? well, anyway, you can read a review on Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover here.

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
While other teenage girls daydream about boys, Calla Tor imagines ripping out her enemies’ throats. And she wouldn’t have it any other way. Calla was born a warrior and on her eighteenth-birthday she’ll become the alpha female of the next generation of Guardian wolves. But Calla’s predestined path veers off course the moment she saves the life of a wayward hiker, a boy her own age. This human boy’s secret will turn the young pack's world upside down and forever alter the outcome of the centuries-old Witches' War that surrounds them all.
You know the drill. COVER. IS. FANTASTIC and SOOOOOO EYE CATCHING! I swear, I think I'll jude books by their covers for the rest of my life, and that mean that I'll be reading non-stop cause there are SO MANY GOOD COVERS!!! sigh..what happened to the good old days, where covers were simple and people read them and judged them by the text not the cover? Anyway, this seems like another really interesting and possibly-fantastic paranormal/supernatural romance (was it a romance? cause it seemed like a romance by the blurb) and it's definitely one of the tops of my wishlist...which I should ask someone *ehem* dad to buy for me when he goes on another trip.
The Eternal Ones by Kristen Miller
Haven Moore can't control her visions of a past with a boy called Ethan, and a life in New York that ended in fiery tragedy. In our present, she designs beautiful dresses for her classmates with her best friend Beau. Dressmaking keeps her sane, since she lives with her widowed and heartbroken mother in her tyrannical grandmother's house in Snope City, a tiny town in Tennessee. Then an impossible group of coincidences conspire to force her to flee to New York, to discover who she is, and who she was.
In New York, Haven meets Iain Morrow and is swept into an epic love affair that feels both deeply fated and terribly dangerous. Iain is suspected of murdering a rock star and Haven wonders, could he have murdered her in a past life? She visits the Ouroboros Society and discovers a murky world of reincarnation that stretches across millennia. Haven must discover the secrets hidden in her past lives, and loves – before all is lost and the cycle begins again.
This book seems very suspenseful. Seems like an interesting read and goes onto the concepts of afterlife...in a sense. It just seems like a maddening question; who is this guy and did he or did he NOT kill her?? I hope it's like cliff-hangy and stuff. That just makes me even more eager to read the book.

I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books—but we are real.
Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. we have lived among you without you knowing.
But they know.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They killed them all.
I am Number Four.
I am next.
I will admit, the blurb DID scare me. It seems well, like something's out to get you if you don't read the book. It seems amazing though. And they're making a movie out of it! when I found out about the movie, I was like "WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME?? WHY HAVEN'T I READ THIS BOOK YET?!?" I will get my hands on this book.
You'll see.

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
Seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, bookworm and band geek, plays second clarinet and spends her time tucked safely and happily in the shadow of her fiery older sister, Bailey. But when Bailey dies abruptly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage of her own life--and, despite her nonexistent history with boys, suddenly finds herself struggling to balance two. Toby was Bailey's boyfriend; his grief mirrors Lennie's own. Joe is the new boy in town, a transplant from Paris whose nearly magical grin is matched only by his musical talent. For Lennie, they're the sun and the moon; one boy takes her out of her sorrow, the other comforts her in it. But just like their celestial counterparts, they can't collide without the whole wide world exploding.
This seems kinda sweet and simple, not a book involving Vampires, Werewolves and Witches OH MY!. It seems like a book that I would really dig into and find easy to flow and understand, not something heavy where every character dies (except the main one of course) and then they have to bring back everyone and blah blah blah blah BLAH. I mean, seriously, I think I deserve a break people. That's probably why I wanna read this book so bad.

WELL! Finally I finished...it took a whole lotta finding covers and blurbs and basing my opinions and things but I made it through! now the main question is, what books are you waiting for and can't wait to get your fleshy paws onto?? Reply in the Comments and I'll Maybe try out your wishlist as well!
