On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by me, which will be posted every Wednesday. It allows us to share the books we haven’t bought yet but are waiting to be bought and devoured. If you are anything like me then your wishlist is getting longer by the day! If you would like to take part and have your own ‘On My Wishlist’ post then you can find more info here. (This post was inspired by the fab In My Mailbox by Kristi at The Story Siren).
I’ve had the Kitty Norville series on my wishlist for a while now. I did read books 1 & 2 many years ago but can’t remember the story line at all. I definitely want to add this series to my ever growing book collection, so hopefully I will get them in the very near future!
Title: Kitty and the Midnight Hour
Author: Carrie Vaughn
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Publication Date: 10 Jan 2008
Paperback: 320 pages
Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station – and a werewolf in the closet. Sick of lame song requests, she accidentally starts “The Midnight Hour”, a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged. After desperate vampires, werewolves, and witches across the country begin calling in to share their woes, her new show is a raging success. But it’s Kitty who can use some help. With one sexy werewolf-hunter and a few homicidal undead on her tail, Kitty may have bitten off more than she can chew…

Books in Series:
I bought the entire series of Sookie Stackhouse, which is still sitting on my shelves unread. But when I was looking around Charlaine’s website one day I found this series, which sounded just as good, so on my wishlist it went…
Title: Grave Sight
Author: Charlaine Harris
Genre: Paranormal Mystery
Publication Date: 13 September 2007
Paperback: 320 pages
Harper Connelly had a lucky escape when she was hit by lightning: she didn’t die. But sometimes she wishes she had died, because the lightning strike left her with an unusual talent: she can find dead people – and that’s not always comfortable. Everyone wants to know how she does it: it’s a little like hearing a bee droning inside her head, or maybe the pop of a Geiger counter, a persistent, irregular noise that increases in strength as she gets closer. It’s almost electric: a buzzing all through her body, and the fresher the corpse, the more intense the buzz.
Harper and her brother Tolliver make their living from finding the dead, for desperate parents, worried friends… and police departments who have nowhere else to look. They may not believe in her abilities, but sometimes the proof is just too much for even the most sceptical of police chiefs to deny. But it’s not always easy for someone like Harper, for the dead *want* to be found – and too often, finding the body doesn’t bring closure; it opens a whole new can of worms.
Books in Series:
I read I Am Legend a few months ago and thought it was one of the best novels I have ever read. If you haven’t read it yet then I recommend that you do. It’s nothing like the film and as always, it’s much better. So, I have added most of Matheson’s books to my wishlist as if they are half as good as I Am Legend then they will definitely be worth reading.
Title: A Stir of Echoes
Author: Richard Matheson
Publisher: Tor Books (this edition)
Publication Date: 1 July 2004
Paperback: 224 pages
Tom Wallace lived an ordinary life, until a chance event awakened psychic abilities he never knew he possessed. Now he’s hearing the private thoughts of the people around him-and learning shocking secrets he never wanted to know. But as Tom’s existence becomes a waking nightmare, even greater jolts are in store as he becomes the unwilling recipient of a compelling message from beyond the grave!
