Three Wishes Wednesday #3

Sorry, sorry sorry guys that I wasn't able to post this up on Wednesday *rolls eyes* but I have exams next week and I'm kinda behind on my studying. So this is going to be a really really quick one. (Sorry, not much time *sobs*) Anyway this week we have....

1) Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy

Releases Date - 13th April 2010
Why- I have been looking forward to this one in a while. I usually go for the darker stuff (you know not so pink or girly) but I enjoy one every so often so this is the next one I'm reading after the 30 books I still have to read.
Description - What’s a girl to do when the glass slipper fits, but she doesn’t want to wear it anymore?Sixteen year old Jess Parker has always been an outsider. So when she receives an invitation to join The Cinderella Society, a secret society of the most popular girls in school, it’s like something out of a fairy tale. Swept up by the Cindys’ magical world of makeovers, and catching the eye of her Prince Charming, Jess feels like she’s finally found her chance to fit in.Then the Wickeds–led by Jess’s arch-enemy–begin targeting innocent girls in their war against the Cindys, and Jess discovers there’s more to being a Cindy than reinventing yourself on the outside. She has unknowingly become part of a centuries-old battle of good vs. evil, and now the Cindys in charge need Jess for a mission that could change everything.Overwhelmed, Jess wonders if The Cinderella Society made a mistake in choosing her. Is it a coincidence her new boyfriend doesn’t want to be seen with her in public? And is this glamorous, secret life even what she wants, or will she risk her own happy ending to live up to the expectations of her new sisters?
2) Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

Release Date - 4th May 2010
Why- Lovely Cover ( Purple ;P) and I have heard alot good things abou this one and seen alot of articles mentioning it soooooo I decided I'm going to give it a go.
Description- Love ties them together. Death can't tear them apart. Best. Birthday. Ever. At least, it was supposed to be. With Logan's band playing a critical gig and Aura's plans for an intimate after-party, Aura knows it will be the most memorable night of her boyfriend's life. She never thought it would be his last. Logan's sudden death leaves Aura devastated. He's gone. Well, sort of. Like everyone born after the Shift, Aura can see and hear ghosts. This mysterious ability has always been annoying, and Aura had wanted nothing more than to figure out why the Shift happened so she can undo it. But not with Logan's violet-hued spirit still hanging around. Because dead Logan is almost as real as ever. Almost. It doesn't help that Aura's new friend Zachary is so understanding--and so very alive. His support means more to Aura than she cares to admit. As Aura's relationships with the dead and the living grow ever complicated, so do her feelings for Logan and Zachary. Each holds a piece of Aura's heart...and clues to the secret of the Shift.

3) White Cat by Holly Black

Release Date - 4th May 2010

Why- Heard very good thing about this one and I'm quite a fan of the Faerie Trilogy of Holly's ( Tithe, Valiant, Ironside check them out) and so I have decided to add this to my TBR pile too ;P

Description- Cassel comes from a family of curse workers -- people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, by the slightest touch of their hands. And since curse work is illegal, they're all mobsters, or con artists. Except for Cassel. He hasn't got the magic touch, so he's an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family. You just have to ignore one small detail -- he killed his best friend, Lila, three years ago.
Ever since, Cassel has carefully built up a façade of normalcy, blending into the crowd. But his façade starts crumbling when he starts sleepwalking, propelled into the night by terrifying dreams about a white cat that wants to tell him something. He's noticing other disturbing things, too, including the strange behavior of his two brothers. They are keeping secrets from him, caught up in a mysterious plot. As Cassel begins to suspect he's part of a huge con game, he also wonders what really happened to Lila. Could she still be alive? To find that out, Cassel will have to out-con the conmen.
Alright that;s all for now. Sorry about the rush D:
Badass Bookie xx
