A case of the I wanty's

Yeah, like I wrote last week I'm still not buying books (although I might next week...will need to see...expecting to get nailed with the first month's cable bill soon which is also my internet bill and oh did I mention they charge you for TWO MONTHS on your first bill????)

But today I may have succumbed to some online browsing. First I updated my Amazon.ca wishlist and took off a bunch of movies that no longer in stock and haven't been in stock pretty much since I put them there. Fun times! (Note: I'm not trying to get anyone to buy me anything by linking to it. My wishlist is a sort of reminder list because I'll often be shopping and need to buy one more thing to get free shipping and it helps me remember what things I want to buy. I just know that someone of you are nosy like me and want to know what things I think I must own. ;))

Then I was browsing through the HarperCollins Canada teen reads section (I got a newsletter today in case you think that's a random thing to be doing) and ummm in 5 minutes I found 3 books that I wanted.

Wicked Lovely

Looks like females in YA get half faces. At least it's not all torso right?

"Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries.
Rule #2: Don't speak to invisible faeries.
Rule #1: Don't ever attract their attention."

I wannttttttt it.  Funnily enough I emailed Cat about it and she laughed because she's been meaning to email me about it. We're so on the same wave length. ;)


We know Beauty. Now it's time to meet the Beast.

I had to go into the First Look offerings to get a description of it but here is a small snippet from there.

"Kyle Kingsbury is the most popular guy at school. He’s also the meanest and most self-absorbed. When his beastly behavior goes a step too far, a witch turns him into a beast. Only true love will break the spell, but that’s a tall order in today’s cynical world."

If I may repeat myself, I wannttttttt it!

The Luxe

"Pretty girls in pretty dresses, partying until dawn.
Irresistible boys with mischievous smiles and dangerous intentions.
White lies, dark secrets, and scandalous hookups.
This is Manhattan, 1899."

Doesn't that sound delicious?   And look! It's a whole entire girl! (I'm assuming there are feet somewhere under all that fabric...)

I've been on the lookout for books about writing lately. I like to surround myself with such things even though I do not seem to have time to read them let alone write anything at the moment. So this caught my eye too.

Writing Magic: Creating Stories that Fly

"In Writing Magic, Newbery Honor author Gail Carson Levine shares her secrets of great writing. She shows how you, too, can get terrific ideas for stories, invent great beginnings and endings, write sparkling dialogue, develop memorable characters—and much, much more. She advises you about what to do when you feel stuck—and how to use helpful criticism. Best of all, she offers writing exercises that will set your imagination on fire."

Yes, it is aimed for younger readers/writers. So what? Good advice is good advice isn't it?

Now all I need the cash to buy them (or even pre-order them) and the time to read them. At this point I honestly don't know which would be easier to get. lol
