Three Wishes Wednesday #14

Wednesday...You know the day where I name my wishes (that never come true) *cries* Yeah, it's that list....

1) Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings by Helene Boudreau

Release Date- 1st Decemeber 2010

Description- First zit. First crush. First ... mermaid’s tail?

Jade feels like enough of a freak-of-nature when she's the last in her circle of friends to get her first period. She doesn’t need to have it happen at the mall while trying on that XL tankini she never wanted to buy in the first place. And she really doesn’t need to run into Luke Martin in the Feminine Hygiene Products aisle while her dad Googles ‘menstruation’ on his Blackberry. But ‘freak-of-nature’ takes on a whole new meaning when raging hormones and bath salts bring on another metamorphosis—complete with scales and a tail. And when Jade learns she’s inherited her mermaid tendencies from her late mother’s side of the family, it raises the question; if Mom was once a mermaid, did she really drown that day last summer? Jade is determined to find out. Though, how does a plus-sized, aqua-phobic mer-girl go about doing that, exactly ... especially when Luke from aisle six seems to be the only person who might be able to help

2) 13 to Life by Shannon Delany

Release Date- 22nd June 2010

Description- Something strange is stalking the small town of Junction…

When junior Jess Gillmansen gets called out of class by Guidance, she can only presume it’s for one of two reasons. Either they’ve finally figured out who wrote the scathing anti-jock editorial in the school newspaper or they’re hosting yet another intervention for her about her mom. Although far from expecting it, she’s relieved to discover Guidance just wants her to show a new student around—but he comes with issues of his own including a police escort. The newest member of Junction High, Pietr Rusakova has secrets to hide--secrets that will bring big trouble to the small town of Junction—secrets including dramatic changes he’s undergoing that will surely end his life early

3) You wish by Mandy Hubbard

Release Date- 5th August 2010

Description- What if all your wishes really came true?

Kayla McHenry’s sweet sixteen sucks! Her dad left, her grades dropped, and her BFF is dating the boy Kayla’s secretly loved for years. Blowing out her candles, Kayla thinks: I wish my birthday wishes actually came true. Because they never freakin’ do. Kayla wakes the next day to a life-sized, bright pink My Little Pony outside her window. Then a year’s supply of gumballs arrives. A boy named Ken with a disturbing resemblance to the doll of the same name stalks her. As the ghosts of Kayla’s wishes-past appear, they take her on a wild ride . . . but they MUST STOP. Because when she was fifteen? She wished Ben Mackenzie would kiss her. And Ben is her best friend’s boyfriend

Badass Bookie xx


  1. I'm interest in the mermaid book. It looks great. I like the cover.

  2. You Wish sounds great! I was cracking up at the part about Ken and that was just in the synopsis! 13 to Life is also on my wish list.
