I feel a lot better this week thankfully! However this is still going to be a quick post as I have loads to do! Im moving again this weekend and wont have the internet for two weeks. Im gunna try and carry on posting as much as possible but I may be quiet! 

First up is one Ive been after for ages, I really cant wait to read this one but Im having to wait til February!
Feb 2012 (Simon & Schuster Children’s Books)
Goodreads summary: 
“When seventeen-year-old Rosie’s mother, Trudie, dies from Huntington’s Disease, her pain is intensified by the knowledge that she has a fifty-per-cent chance of inheriting the crippling disease herself. Only when she tells her mum’s best friend, ‘Aunt Sarah’ that she is going to test for the disease does Sarah, a midwife, reveal that Trudie was not her biological mother after all… Devastated, Rosie decides to trace her real mother, hitching along on her ex-boyfriend’s GAP year to follow her to Los Angeles. But all does not go to plan, and as Rosie discovers yet more of her family’s deeply-buried secrets and lies, she is left with an agonising decision of her own – one which will be the most heart-breaking and far-reaching of all..”

Next is one I saw the cover and title of and fell for… Im not even sure Ive read the summary! Its a sefl published book which I dont read a lot of but I think this one should be read! 
July 2011 (Self)
Goodreads Summary:
“Sixteen year old Kait Lenox has a reputation as the weird girl in her high school, mostly because of her ex-best friend turned mean popular girl, Ariel, but maybe it has a little to do with the fact that Kait has a hobby crashing funerals. At one of these, Kait is outted by the most popular guy in school, Ethan Ripley. Yet, instead of humiliating her for all the world to see, he asks for her help, and Kait finds herself entangled in a murder mystery. Not only is the thrill of the mystery exciting, but more importantly Ethan knows her name! A little sleuthing is well worth that!”

Finally one I saw on a blog recently, I think it was Jo’s blog Wear The Old Coat, and I really liked the sound of it, its a webcomic which is coming out as a full book next year 
Feb 2012 (Pan Macmillan)
Goodreads Summary:
“A coming-of-age tale with a spooky twist!

Maggie McKay hardly knows what to do with herself. After an idyllic childhood of homeschooling with her mother and rough-housing with her older brothers, it’s time for Maggie to face the outside world, all on her own. But that means facing high school first. And it also means solving the mystery of the melancholy ghost who has silently followed Maggie throughout her entire life. Maybe it even means making a new friend—one who isn’t one of her brothers.”

So thats my wishlist this week, whats on yours?! 
  • Adventures in Funeral Crashing sounds great – I’ve never heard of it before, but it sounds funny! And I’m really looking forward to Someone Else’s Life too – great picks!

  • Never heard of the middle one before, but like Liz said it sounds really good! Will have to keep an eye out for that one.

    The Cait Files

  • Not heard of any of them…but love the title of Adventures in Funeral Crashing. All three of these look really interesting. Awesome choices!

  • Don’t know if you already know, but Someone Else’s Life is on NetGalley! I’ve heard loads about it, so I might start reading soon 🙂
