On My Wishlist

Do you have any books that you desperately want but haven't bought yet? The books can be old, new or forthcoming.

Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld

Behemoth (Leviathan)

From goodreads :
The behemoth is the fiercest creature in the British navy. It can swallow enemy battleships with one bite. The Darwinists will need it, now that they are at war with the Clanker powers.

Deryn is a girl posing as a boy in the British Air Service, and Alek is the heir to an empire posing as a commoner. Finally together aboard the airship Leviathan, they hope to bring the war to a halt. But when disaster strikes the Leviathan's peacekeeping mission, they find themselves alone and hunted in enemy territory.

Alek and Deryn will need great skill, new allies, and brave hearts to face what's ahead.

Goliath by Scott Westerfeld

Goliath (Leviathan)

From Amazon :
The final book in Westerfeld's masterful trilogy that SLJ reviewed as "sure to become a classic."

Touching Darkness by Scott Westerfeld

Midnighters #2: Touching Darkness

From Amazon :
Bixby, Oklahoma, is full of secrets.
some come out at midnight.
some should stay hidden.

As the Midnighters search for the truth about the secret hour, they uncover terrifying mysteries woven into the very fabric of Bixby’s history, and a conspiracy that touches the world of daylight.

This time Jessica Day is not the only Midnighter in mortal danger, and if the group can’t find a way to come together, they could lose one of their own . . . forever.

Blue Noon by Scott Westerfeld

Midnighters #3: Blue Noon

From Amazon :
the darklings will hunt once again

The secret hour when time freezes arrives every night at midnight in Bixby, Oklahoma. It's a dangerous time, when five teenagers are the only humans awake and dark creatures crawl out of the shadows, but at least the midnight hour is regular and predictable.

Until suddenly, the blue time comes . . . in the middle of the day.

The noise of school stops. Cheerleaders are frozen in midair, teachers brought to a standstill. Everything is the haunted blue color of the midnight hour.

The Midnighters can't understand what's happening, but as they scramble for answers, they discover that the walls between the secret hour and real time are crumbling. Soon the dark creatures will have a chance to feed after centuries of waiting, unless these five teenagers can find a way to stop them.

A desperate race against time, a mind-blowing mystery of paranormal logic, a tale of ancient evil and spine-chilling sacrifice: blue noon is the exhilarating third volume in the Midnighters series by acclaimed author Scott Westerfeld.

  3. I've only read two from Westerfeld's Uglies trilogy, but I love his writing and I've heard wonderful things about the Leviathon trilogy.

    Hope you get to read these soon (and as soon as they come out)!

  4. I just picked up Leviathian at our closing Borders the other day!

    I tried to read Midnighters a year or two ago and only got about 50 pages in. I just don't think I was in the mood for it and I've never picked it back up lol.

    I loved his Uglies series, wasn't a fan of Peeps.
