Want It Wednesday

A list of the things (books and non-books) that I am wanting this week.

Release Date 10/13/09

About the Book: (from Amazon) For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: The cover is amazing, the plot sounds incredible, and Becca is super nice. I can't wait to read this one!

EmiJay hair ties. (sorry for lack of pics) Curse you I Heart Daily! Every day I find something else I love and must have. But seriously, how cool are these? Two teen girls designed cute affordable hair ties in adorable colors. I wish I would have been that inventive as a teen.

About the Book: (from Audible) For 17-year-old actress Kelley Winslow, faeries are just something from childhood stories. Then she meets Sonny Flannery, whose steel-gray eyes mask an equally steely determination to protect her.

Sonny guards the Samhain Gate, which connects the mortal realm with the Faerie's enchanted, dangerous Otherworld. Usually kept shut by order of icy King Auberon, the Gate stands open but once a year.

This year, as the time approaches when the Samhain Gate will swing wide and nightmarish Fae will fight their way into an unsuspecting human world, something different is happening... something wondrous and strange. And Kelley's eyes are opening not just to the Faerie that surround her but to the heritage that awaits her.

Now Kelley must navigate deadly Faerie treachery, and her growing feelings for Sonny, in this dazzling page-turner filled with luminous romance.
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I love audiobooks and I think this one would be great on audio (for some reason I really enjoy fantasy books on audio). Plus, it's read by the author which I think is cool. Check it out on Audible!


  1. i'm with you on that one Sister?!!? HUSH HUSH is my next most coveted read.

  2. Hush, Hush is one of my favorite covers of all time!

  3. Hooray for Hush, Hush!!! And LOL on the hair ties. Teen entrepreneurs are the best! :-)

  4. I'm glad you still think I'm nice after my crazy stalker messages to you on facebook! ;)

    Thanks for choosing Hush, Hush for Want it Wednesday!

  5. Hush, Hush looks like such a graet read! I can't wait till it's released.

    I Heart Daily definitely shows off some really cool stuff. Today, when I opened up their newsletter, it talked about how in Sierra Leone girls could get a scholarship if they stayed virgins. It was a very interesting article.

  6. Hush, Hush sounds amazing. I can't wait for it to be released!

  7. I absolutely cannot wait for Hush, Hush!!! It looks soooo amazing.

  8. ooooh! Hush Hush is right at the top of my want-list at the moment. Looks so great. And Wondrous Strange was a great read - you're right, it would sound amazing on audiobook!

  9. This book looks really good, I've added it to my wish list!

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
