On My Wishlist (1)

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. It’s also an event that you can join in with too – If you want to know more, click here.

Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
Hardcover: 458 pages
Release date: October 5th, 2010
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Goodreads Summary: In the zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America where Benny Imura lives, every teenager must find a job by the time they turn fifteen or get their rations cut in half. Benny doesn't want to apprentice as a zombie hunter with his boring older brother Tom, but he has no choice. He expects a tedious job whacking zoms for cash, but what he gets is a vocation that will teach him what it means to be human.
The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder
Hardcover: 320 pages
Release date: June 28th, 2011
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Goodreads Summary: Amber’s life is spinning out of control. All she wants is to turn up the volume on her iPod until all of the demands of family and friends fade away. So she sneaks off to the beach to spend a day by herself.
Then Amber meets Cade. Their attraction is instant, and Amber can tell he’s also looking for an escape. Together they decide to share a perfect day: no pasts, no fears, no regrets.
The more time that Amber spends with Cade, the more she’s drawn to him. And the more she’s troubled by his darkness. Because Cade’s not just living in the now—he’s living each moment like it’s his last.


  1. I really enjoyed Rot & Ruin, I hope you do too when you get your hands on a copy. Haven't heard of The Day Before, but will definitely check it out :)

  2. Lisa Shroeder is just a fantastic author. I must add this one to my list.

  3. Rot and Ruin sounds so awesome. I'm trying to slowly, really slowly lean away from vampires so zombies might be the creature that I go for.

  4. Oo, I reviewed Rot & Ruin yesterday - get it, it's a fantastic read! One of my favourites so far this year! :)

  5. Oooo The Day Before looks great, I will have to add that one to my list! :D
