On My Wishlist (6)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where we list all the books we desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.
After being out of touch with the book community for a little while, I just about peed my pants when I saw all the books that have been announced for release in 2012. So many good titles! This week I'm particularly excited about these two:

by Corrine Jackson
Release Date: December 2012

Remy O'Malley has the power to heal people with her touch, but her ability comes at a steep cost because every illness or injury she heals becomes her own.

That's all Goodreads has for a summary so far! Ah! But it sounds like the exact opposite of Shatter Me so yay!

by Suze Reese
Release Date: January 2012

Mira Johns is pretty much like any other teenage girl. Except that she knows how to harness electro-magnetic energy to communicate without words. And she's really, really far from home. Her assignment as an emissary to Earth sounds fairly simple: blend in, observe, and stay away from the planet’s primitive males. But after she finds one mysterious boy too irresistible for stupid rules, she realizes the real reason she's supposed to keep her distance: mates from her world can die if separated. But a series of serious accidents make it clear that someone wants to force her return. Mira decides her only hope is to uncover the truth to why she, the most mediocre of candidates, was actually chosen for this assignment—before the agency discovers her secret and sends her back home.

 As you can tell, I have a thing for books where the protagonist has some sort of special power or ability. Maybe it's just my secret dream of being an X-men...*sigh* one day...

  1. Extranormal sounds good. I skipped last week because I didn't have any new wish list books, nor had I finished reading any wish list books. Please come see what I'm wishing for this week.
