On My Wishlist is a weekly meme that used to be hosted by Book Chick City, but now Cosy Books has taken over the task. It runs every Saturday, and it’s where we list all the books we desperately want but haven’t actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.
On my Wishlist this week, I have Scorch by Gina Damico.
The first book of this series, Croak, I just absolutely loved. The second one Scorch comes out in September 2012, and I’ve already pre-ordered myself a copy. I can’t wait to read this!
Description: (May contain spoilers if you haven’t read the first book)
Sixteen-year-old Lex Bartleby is a teenage grim reaper with the bizarre ability to damn souls. That makes her pretty scary, even to fellow Grims. But after inadvertently transferring her ability to Zara, a murderous outlaw, Lex is a pariah in Croak, the little town she calls home. To escape the townspeople’s wrath, she and her friends embark on a wild road trip to DeMyse. Though this sparkling desert oasis is full of luxuries and amusements, it feels like a prison to Lex. Her best chance at escape would be to stop Zara once and for all—but how can she do that from DeMyse, where the Grims seem mysteriously oblivious to Zara’s killing spree?
