On My Wishlist (#7)

On My Wishlist is a wonderful weekly meme from Book Chick City in which we drool over the books on our wishlist that we may not get to buy for a while!

***
This weeks first pick comes after a twitter conversation (I swear that place is bad for me!) I was waiting for the paperback to come out of this book but having now seen the paperback I have decided its awful and I need the hardback! I also think that I’m probably the only person in the blogging world who hasn’t read this book yet! 


Delirium – Lauren Oliver
Feb 2011 (Hodder) 


Goodreads Summary: 
Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love — the deliria — blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. 

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

Next up we have a book that I was looking at last weekend but then saw a review for by Michelle at Fluttering Butterflies and decided that I NEEDED it soon! 

One of Those Hideous Books Where the Mother Dies – Sonya Sones 
October 2005 (Simon Pulse)

Goodreads Summary: 
Fifteen-year-old Ruby Milliken leaves her best friend, her boyfriend, her aunt, and her mother’s grave in Boston and reluctantly flies to Los Angeles to live with her father, a famous movie star who divorced her mother before Ruby was born.





The summary isn’t that great from goodreads but I’ve heard it is awesome and also its a verse novel… which after The Day Before I really want to read more of

And finally, I really love YA books that involve gay characters and as this author is fantastic I really want to get my hands on this book! Thanks to Caroline at Portrait of a Woman for pointing this one out through twitter (I tell you, that place is bad for me!) I also love that there is a copy of this book available with a waterproof cover! haha!

The Bermudez Triangle – Maureen Johnson 
May 2007 (Razorbill) 

Goodreads Summary: 
What happens when your two best friends fall in love…with each other?

“Their friendship went so far back, it bordered on the Biblical — in the beginning, there was Nina and Avery and Mel.” So says high school senior Nina Bermudez about herself and her two best friends, nicknamed “The Bermudez Triangle” by a jealous wannabe back on Nina’s eleventh birthday. But the threesome faces their first separation when Nina goes away the summer before their senior year. And in ten short weeks, everything changes.

Nina returns home bursting with stories about Steve, the quirky yet adorable eco-warrior she fell for hard while away. But when she asks her best friends about their summer romances, an awkward silence follows.

Nina soon learns the shocking truth when she sees Mel and Avery…kissing. Their friendship is rocked by what feels like the ultimate challenge. But it’s only the beginning of a sometimes painful, sometimes funny, always gripping journey as three girls discover who they are and what they really want
