Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop hosted @ Pen to Paper where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.
Everyone has something,
someone, somewhere else that they’d rather be. For four high-school
seniors, their goals of perfection are just as different as the paths
they take to get there. Cara’s parents’ unrealistic expectations have
already sent her twin brother Conner spiraling toward suicide. For her, perfect means
rejecting their ideals to take a chance on a new kind of love. Kendra
covets the perfect face and body—no matter what surgeries and drugs she
needs to get there. To score his perfect home run—on the field and
off—Sean will sacrifice more than he can ever win back. And Andre
realizes that to follow his heart and achieve his perfect performance,
he’ll be living a life his ancestors would never have understood.
Everyone wants to be perfect, but when perfection loses its meaning, how far will you go? What would you give up to be perfect?
A riveting and startling companion to the bestselling Impulse, Ellen Hopkins's Perfect exposes the harsh truths about what it takes to grow up and grow into our own skins, our own selves.
OMG. I really really really want this book. I love everything that Ellen Hopkins writes. Also Impulse was my favorite and this is the second one. Oh, man I can't wait to get my hands on it. ugh LIFE.
Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge—but at a price. Naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, the convent views Sybella as one of their most dangerous weapons.
But those assassin’s skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to a life that nearly drove her mad. Her father’s rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother’s love is equally monstrous. And while Sybella is a weapon of justice wrought by the god of Death himself, He must give her a reason to live. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dun geons, will a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?
This heart-pounding sequel to Grave Mercy serves betrayal, treachery, and danger in equal measure, bringing readers back to fifteenth century Brittany and will keep them on the edge of their seats
(This cover was revealed today!)
I loved Grave Mercy. I wondered what happened to Sybella. We saw her in the first book but she is so shrouded in mystery. I want to know her back story and what happened to her during the first book. I have to wait until April 2013 to find out. O_O when i saw the cover, i was like, yes, a dagger! which is not a normal reaction. lol
