On my UKYA wishlist

Losing Lila by Sarah Alderson - I absolutely fell in love with Hunting Lila when I read it last year.  I loved the gift that Lila has and struggles with, I loved unraveling the mystery that surrounds her family but especially I loved the tension and chemistry between Lila and her brother's hot best friend, Alex.  The plot was very twisty-turny and swoony and I have very high expectations for this sequel.  Bring it on!

A Witch in Love by Ruth Warburton - I think the first book in the series, A Witch in Winter, was completely unexpected for me.  It wasn't anything at all like I was expecting it to be and I love the newness and refreshing nature of reading a book unlike others in the same genre that I will always be excited to read more.  I found the characters likeable and I'm interested in their relationships and seeing where this story will take them and what decisions and choices they will make.

Frostfire by Zoe Marriott - This book is a bit of a strange one to be included on this list as it is the sequel to Daughter of the Flames, a novel which I have but have not yet read.  Even so, I'm very much looking forward to reading DotF and then following that book up with this one.  I think it has a gorgeous cover and I have put all of Zoe's books on my must-read list after the strength of Shadows on the Moon, which was one of my favourite books read in 2011. 

Rebel Heart by Moira Young - It has only JUST occurred to me that every one of my choices on this list are sequels.  Huh.  Either way, I really enjoyed Blood Red Road by Moira Young and I'm looking forward to seeing where her story leads.  Judging by the man on the cover of the book, I'm guessing there will be a lot of Jack's story here.  I like that idea.  Since thinking about which books would be on my wishlist, I keep hearing the guy from the Blood Red Road trailer in my head saying Jack's words .. 'You're in my blood, Saba, you're in my head. You're in my breath, you're in my bones.' AHH. I want to read the next book now.
