On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where I list all the books I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. (: So heres my on my wishlist for this week:

Tyger Tyger by: Kersten Hamilton
Published: November 2010

Teagan Wylltson's best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures--goblins, shape-shifters, and beings of unearthly beauty but terrible cruelty--are hunting Teagan. Abby is always coming up with crazy stuff, though, so Teagan isn't worried. Her life isn't in danger. In fact, it's perfect. She's on track for a college scholarship. She has a great job. She's focused on school, work, and her future. No boys, no heartaches, no problems.

Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives. Finn's a bit on the unearthly beautiful side himself. He has a killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. And either he's crazy or he's been haunting Abby's dreams, because he's talking about goblins, too . . . and about being The Mac Cumhaill, born to fight all goblin-kind. Finn knows a thing or two about fighting. Which is a very good thing, because this time, Abby's right. The goblins are coming.

I want this book so bad! It sounds so good, the main thing that really got me to want this book was the books trailer it is SO good....someday soon I will get this book and read it! Oh and since the book trailer is what made me REALLY want to read this book I figure I will share it with you guys, so here it is an all it's epic-ness (: 

Awesome right? So can't wait to get this eventually and read it.

NOW for my second wishlist book:

Small Blue Thing by S.C Ransom
Published: January 2011

Celebrating the end of exams with best friend Grace, 17 year-old Alex rescues a swan caught on a wire in the Thames mud and finds an extraordinary bracelet. Through its disturbing and compelling powers, she finds Callum, a soul locked in a half-life of sadness and mystery following a terrible accident, and his persuasive and sinister sister, Catherine. As Alex and Callum grow closer despite the enormous obstacles to their love, the dangers mount until Alex must risk everything to save Grace, and Callum must risk everything to save Alex.

I love the look and sound of this book, I love the blue colors the have on the cover, the bracelet is gorgeous, and most importantly the book sounds amazing! Hopefully I will sometime soon get around to getting this book also (:

Well that's it for my wishlist this week! What's on yours? (:
