Synopsis from amazon.co.uk

There isn't much worth living for in Gypsum, Missouri, or "Trashtown," as the rich kids call the run down neighborhood where sixteen-year-old Hailey Tarbell lives. As far as Hailey knows, she's never going to belong. Not with the kids at school or with her cruel, sickly grandmother, who keeps their household afloat by dealing drugs out of the basement.


But Hailey can't help the feeling that she has some kind of gift, or curse, that makes the other kids shy away from her. Hailey is drawn to those in pain, those who need to be healed. And when her dog Rascal is hit by a car, Hailey's gift is revealed. Not only can she heal, she can bring the suffering back to life. And Hailey will soon find out, this power to heal is just the beginning . . .

My Thoughts

I'm really intrigued to read this. Can't wait to find out more about Hailey's powers

Synopsis from amazon.co.uk

When Emma Vaile's parents leave on a mysterious business trip, it gives her the perfect excuse to be a rebellious teen. But then her best friend stops talking to her, the police crash her party and Emma finds herself in the hands of a new guardian, Bennett Stern, and on a plane to his museum-like mansion in New England. After enrolling at Thatcher Academy, Emma settles in by making friends with the popular crowd. She has memories of Thatcher she can't explain and strange visions are haunting her. Emma doesn't trust anyone any more - except maybe Bennett. But he's about to reveal a ghostly secret to her. One that will explain the visions ...and make Emma fear for her life.

My Thoughts

I know this book has been around for a while now, but the hardcover artwork didn't really interest me, so when I found out that it was being released in paperback with this cover I knew I would have to get it. Can't wait to read it.

Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey
Pages: 352
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
Publication Date: 4 July 2011
Format: Paperback

Synopsis from amazon.co.uk

Violet Willoughby doesn't believe in ghosts, especially since her mother has worked as a fraudulent medium for a decade. Violet has taken part in enough of her mother's tricks to feel more than a little jaded about anyhting supernatural. The ghosts, however, believe in Violet and she's been seeing them everywhere. One ghost in particular needs Violet to use her emerging gift to solve her murder ...and prevent the ghost's twin sister from suffering the same fate.

My Thoughts

This is another book that I am really looking forward to reading. I love the cover artwork, its very dark and mysterious, definitely fits the theme of the book.

So there are the books that I'm looking forward to getting. What are you looking forward to reading?
