The Wishlist Diet #6

*The Wishlist Diet is part of the In My Mailbox feature hosted by The Story Siren*

To read:


I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
The Magnificent 12: The Call by Michael Grant
The Declaration by Gemma Malley

To review:


The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Hunger by Michael Grant
The Blackhope Enigma by Teresa Flavin

I'm very excited about this week's attempt at hacking at my wishlist! That might have something to do with the fact that I got The Magnificent 12 free on a Kindle pre-order - I'm a sucker for a free book. So if it's pants I won't feel bad! I'm sure it won't be pants though, I really like Michael Grant (hence the review of Hunger which I just finished this morning) and it will be great to read a shorter book by him. I'm a bit undecided about I Am Number Four as lots of reviews say it's just another unoriginal high school romp and I really can't stand these, so if anyone has read it let me know if it's more than that! Also going to read The Declaration as The Legacy is out in paperback this month and this series really has me interested.

I'd love to know what everyone thinks of my reading list this week, if you've read any of these let me know what you thought!

  2. I really loved the Hunger Games, it was a great dystopian novel-- but I may have liked Divergent by Veronica Roth even more! I've never heard of The Declaration, but it has a very beautiful cover. Hope you enjoy all of the books you got this week!

    You can see what I got this week at the link below! Would love if you stopped by :)

  4. I got the Hunger Games on my Nook a while ago and I want to read it, but I just haven't gottent to it yet.
    I've heard a lot of mixed reviews about I am Number 4 as well. Some people love it, other people not so much. Great haul this week though!
