Bibliophile's Wish List: 11.10.13

There are quite a few good books that have caught my attention this week! Here they are just for you to lust after or ultimately add to your own bookshelves!

This book caught my attention, not necessarily for the story that is being told - which is definitely a good story and one that I will enjoy reading - but for the title.  Ketchup Clouds is just a nifty little title and I enjoy it! The story, itself is a unique one, about fifteen-year-old Zoe has a secret, and there is no one that she can share her story with.  However, she soon learns of a criminal, Stuart Barnes, who is locked up on death row.  He is no stranger to secrets, lies or murder.  Ultimately, Zoe begins writing letters to Stuart on the back of a geography worksheet.

Tess and Ian have been living in the high city of Esperanza for years, along with Tess's niece, Maddie, and her partner, Nick Sanchez. They thought they could rest, that they had defeated the brujo threat to our plane of existence. But they were wrong.  This book caught my attention by the cover, I love covers that have mysterious men on the cover...or sexy men, or all of the above.  Beyond that, the concept seems interesting, and I am greatly looking forward to reading this book as soon as I can.

This is the second book in the Elemental series by Antony John, and I am greatly looking forward to it.  I will hopefully be reading the first book in this series before this one comes out - otherwise, I will be waiting until I can get my hands on Elemental, the first book in this series, simply because I cannot allow myself to read books out of order...ever. 

The Granger brothers left behind their family's Virginia estate-and the bad memories it holds-years ago. But their dying grandfather's request brings them home:to a failing business, a legacy of secrets and a deathbed promise to make things right.  This is a new series by New York Times bestselling author Brenda Jackson.  Yes, this is a romance, and yes I do have a soft spot for them at times.  So, I will be adding book one of the Granger Brothers series to my bookshelf.

Okay, I have to admit, the title of this one is what caught me first and foremost.  The F--- It List by Julie Halpern is a book that encourages you to simply live.  Becca and Alex are friends, they have always been friends.  However, Becca does something unforgiveable at Alex's dad's funeral.  Eventually, Alex decides to forgive Becca, however, Becca has cancer and will not be able to complete everything on her bucket list.   This is where Alex comes in, along with a mysterious and guarded boy, will Becca get to cross things off her bucket list, and just maybe Alex will get to cross a few things off hers.
