Wishing on a Wednesday #2

11:21 PM

Look at me attempting to do this 2 weeks in a row! Well. This is simply because there's been some new books I've been wishing on, already, I need help. So, I thought that I would share these with you! 

If you haven't read my previous post, then wishing on a Wednesday is a play on the popular "waiting on Wednesday" book blogger post where people write about books they are waiting to be released, I on the other hand am just writing about books I really want! So, here it goes! 

5. Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz

Page Count: 432
Publisher: Harper
Genre: Horror, Thriller

Synopsis and Reason: This was recommended to me by my friend, Dan. He's keen on getting me to try Dean Koontz and this is where he said was a good place to start. I did a little bit of googling and now I really want it. This is about a man who can see dead people as well as "evil spirits" that appear when something bad is about to happen. Recently he's been dreaming about dead bowling-alley staff and when one day he notices a high amount of these "evil spirits" he wonders if this is the day when the bowling-alley massacre will take place. This is the first book in the series, though I believe all books have their own stories and could be read separately, not sure though. This just sounds really interesting to me! It might be a good book to get me into the horror genre!

4. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

Page Count: 432
Publisher: Definitions
Genre: Contemporary, Taboo, Family, Siblings, Young Adult

Synopsis and Reason: I can't exactly remember where I first heard about this book. I just remember feeling quite intrigued simply because of the subject matter and the fact that it was Young Adult. This is a subject that some readers may not want to read about and some people may think that it's wrong to even write about it. Okay, okay, so you want to know what I'm talking about! This book, is essentially, about incest. It is about a brother and a sister who fall in love with each other. I think the topic and premise of this book is the whole reason that I want to read it. 

3. Princesses Behaving Badly by Linda Rodriguez McRobbie

Page Count: 288
Publisher: Quirk Books
Genre: Non-Fiction, Biography, Historical, Royalty

Synopsis and Reason: Quirk books is once again being featured in my wishing on a Wednesday list! But their books are just so interesting, which is why the name quirk books is so appropriate! This book is a collection of real stories about princesses throughout history and their weird, sometimes bad lives. It's so different to anything I have ever even heard of and I just really want to get my hands on a copy!

2. Uninvited by Sophie Jordan 

Page Count: 372
Publisher: Harper Teen
Genre: Dystopian, Action, Sci-Fi, Crime, Genetics, Fantasy

Synopsis and Reason: This is a fairly new book that was published in January this year, not yet out in paperback. I'm dying for it to come out in paperback, I want it so bad! This is set in a world where those who are likely to be killers are said to carry a gene called "Homicidal Tendency Syndrome" , people are being tested for this gene and separated from society if they are a carrier. The main character finds out that she carries this gene, and is separated from everything. She then gets a chance to change this. I love the idea of this book, it's dealing with the nature vs nurture debate in a really clever and interesting way, need it in my life!

1. The Three Christs of Ypsilanti by  Milton Rokeach


Page Count: 325
Publisher: NYRB Classics
Genre: Psychology, Mental Health, Experimental, Science, Non-Fiction

Synopsis and Reason: This one I remember my Psychology teacher at A-level telling me about the experiment and I found that the story of the experiment was actually a book! This is about a man who puts three people in a room who suffer from schizophrenia this means that they have delusions about themselves and the world around them. The thing that these three schizophrenics have in common is that they all believe that they are Jesus Christ. This is literally all I know about it, but I thought it sounded insanely interesting and intriguing and I just really want to read it!
