Wish List - October 2009

Wish List is a monthly feature on my blog that contains an impartial list of recently released books and upcoming releases that have caught my attention and that I would love to read. Authors and publishers, if you're interested in having me review your book, don't hesitate to email me! This also goes to bloggers who might be interested in trades; email me, and we might be able to work something out. :) stephxsu at gmail dot com

I received several emails last month from bloggers wondering if they could "borrow" this idea of mine. By all means, borrow away! It's not like I have a copyright on it or anything. :) If you do create a monthly wishlist of your own, definitely leave a link in the comments; I'd love to check yours out!

When Mike Kissed Emma by Christine Marciniak (July 23, 2009)


  1. Awesome! I just started doing a monthly thing where I list the books that come out that month that look good!

    When Mike Kissed Emma looks awesome! I finally broke down and bought it, but its sooo short!!! but a cute sounding book!

  2. Ohh this looks so much fun and you picked such great books! I might have to see what I want for my wishlist! Thanks!

  3. I love these posts and I want SOOO many of these books. I'd name them all but it would be like 99 % of your list so that would just go on and on and on and on...LOL


  4. Book fairies where are you? Come and give Steph all of these :D

  5. lol.. yep these R all on my wish list. Grant our wishes book fairy hehe

  6. I love this idea, although I can tell it's going to make my own wishlist even longer! Have to agree with you on Ballad, Time of the Witches, Bleeding Violet and The Everafter. There are just so many great titles coming out these days.

  7. Fantastic posts and OMG look at all those books! The Pale Assassin looks great and I haven't come across it before. I could go on and on about all of them, but all I'll say is you have to read the Dark Visions trilogy ASAP and tell me what you think.

  8. Great list! Of all of those, I think I want THE MARK the most.

  9. I love this post! I've got Ballad to read and The Mark to read (I won Jen Nadol's contest) and can't wait to read them! I also REALLY want Dark Visions, Firespell, Crazy Beautiful, and The Everafter.

  10. You have some awesome books in that list!

    I've made my own, but as my blog has only been running for a short time, my list is LONG!
