Wish List Wednesday - Number Seventeen

Well, since Mockingjay is now firmly in my grasp, I really don't have any books on my wish-list.

However, I then re-stumbled across the third Carrie Ryan book. Granted, I have yet to get around to reading the first two books - they look pretty on my shelf though - but when it comes to books in a series I always feel the need to own them all.

The Dark and Hollow Places

Released: March 22, 2011 by Delacourt Books for Young Readers

Summary: There are many things that Annah would like to forget: the look on her sister’s face when she and Elias left her behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, her first glimpse of the horde as they found their way to the Dark City, the sear of the barbed wire that would scar her for life. But most of all, Annah would like to forget the morning Elias left her for the Recruiters.

Annah’s world stopped that day and she’s been waiting for him to come home ever since. Without him, her life doesn’t feel much different from that of the dead that roam the wasted city around her. Then she meets Catcher and everything feels alive again.

Except, Catcher has his own secrets -- dark, terrifying truths that link him to a past Annah’s longed to forget, and to a future too deadly to consider. And now it’s up to Annah -- can she continue to live in a world drenched in the blood of the living? Or is death the only escape from the Return’s destruction?

It sounds amazing. I can't wait to read all three books.

On a side note, here's the potential paperback cover image, due out in 2012. It looks a heck of a lot like the cover of  Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. But I still like it; it's so harsh and captivating.
