På min önskelista (11)

Jag har precis ändrat om lite i min bokhylla, men det blir ju aldrig som jag vill.. Eller de första tre hyllorna är precis som jag vill ha dem, men sen kommer de två sista där det är en blandning av amerikansk/engelsk YA, filmer, svenska ungdomsböcker, klassiker och andra random böcker. Dessutom är det ett litet hål där det inte finns några böcker alls och jag får nästan lust att köpa ett par böcker bara för att det ska bli fullt, haha. Åh, i-landsproblem.

I alla fall... Om jag inte hade gett mig själv köpförbud i resten av mars (får väl se hur det går...) så är här några böcker jag gärna hade köpt:

Sean Griswold's Head av Lindsey Leavitt:

According to her guidance counselor, fifteen-year-old Payton Gritas needs a focus object—an item to concentrate her emotions on. It's supposed to be something inanimate, but Payton decides to use the thing she stares at during class: Sean Griswold's head. They've been linked since third grade (Griswold-Gritas—it's an alphabetical order thing), but she's never really known him.

The focus object is intended to help Payton deal with her father's newly diagnosed multiple sclerosis. And it's working. With the help of her boy-crazy best friend Jac, Payton starts stalking—er, focusing on—Sean Griswold . . . all of him! He's cute, he shares her Seinfeld obsession (nobody else gets it!) and he may have a secret or two of his own.

In this sweet story of first love, Lindsey Leavitt seamlessly balances heartfelt family moments, spot-on sarcastic humor, and a budding young romance.

Falling Under av Gwen Hayes:

Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life in the small California town of Serendipity Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her school, Theia knows she's seen Haden before- not around town, but in her dreams.

As the Haden of both the night and the day beckons her closer one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels towards him is stronger than her fear.

And when she discovers what Haden truly is, Theia's not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul.

A Visitor's Guide to Mystic Falls: Your Favorite Authors on The Vampire Diaries:

Vampires are hot right now, especially among teens, and The Vampire Diaries in a few short episodes became the CW’s most-watched show.

The Vampire Diaries brings together today’s best YA writers of the supernatural to talk about the show’s first season: the characters, the storyline, the magic, the town. From a history of the Salem’s witches from whom Bonnie is descended to family therapy for brothers Stefan and Damon, the anthology is guaranteed to keep Vampire Diaries viewers entertained—and make them see Mystic Falls, and the rest of the show, in a whole new way.

And the webmasters of Vampire-Diaries.net, a popular fansite for both the books and show, also provide a primer on what viewers should know before picking up the books.
