Weekend Wishlist (19)

Hey everyone!  Happy Saturday!
Do you have a list of books building up in your head (or on your bookshelf), that have been out for awhile, but you've never read, but you keep hoping you will?
Weekend Wishlist is a way for bloggers to share their to-be-read piles with each other, and to remind themselves that, though we all adore the new releases, there are many backlist titles that deserve our love too.

Anyway, here's mine!



I've had these sitting on my shelf FOREVER and I haven't gotten around to reading them, even though I really, really want to.

What's WRONG with me?

After years of frequent moves following her mother’s death, Chloe Saunders’s life is finally settling down. She is attending art school, pursuing her dreams of becoming a director, making friends, meeting boys. Her biggest concern is that she’s not developing as fast as her friends are. But when puberty does hit, it brings more than hormone surges. Chloe starts seeing ghosts–everywhere, demanding her attention. After she suffers a breakdown, her devoted aunt Lauren gets her into a highly recommended group home.

At first, Lyle House seems a pretty okay place, except for Chloe’s small problem of fearing she might be facing a lifetime of mental illness. But as she gradually gets to know the other kids at the home–charming Simon and his ominous, unsmiling brother Derek, obnoxious Tori, and Rae, who has a “thing” for fire–Chloe begins to realize that there is something that binds them all together, and it isn’t your usual “problem kid” behaviour. And together they discover that Lyle House is not your usual group home either…

Oh, and if you'd like to take part, just post your link below.  Remember, the focus of this meme is on back-list (already published) titles, so as much as we look forward to upcoming books, this is only for ones that have been out for awhile that are sitting on our to-read piles, okie dokie?

  2. I haven't read anything by Kelly Armstrong, but someday I will give her a try. Good luck with getting those books read.
