Wishlist Wednesday #2

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.
Hosted by Pen To Paper

Perfect for the fans of Shatter Me who are desperately awaiting the release of Unravel Me, this novella-length digital original will bridge the gap between these two novels from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.
In Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me, Juliette escaped from The Reestablishment by seducing Warner—and then putting a bullet in his shoulder. But as she’ll learn in Destroy Me, Warner is not that easy to get rid of. . .
Back at the base and recovering from his near-fatal wound, Warner must do everything in his power to keep his soldiers in check and suppress any mention of a rebellion in the sector. Still as obsessed with Juliette as ever, his first priority is to find her, bring her back, and dispose of Adam and Kenji, the two traitors who helped her escape. But when Warner’s father, The Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment, arrives to correct his son’s mistakes, it’s clear that he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner simply cannot allow.
Set after Shatter Me and before its forthcoming sequel, Unravel Me, Destroy Me is a novella told from the perspective of Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

 My God! Tahereh Mafi is my new favorite author. I've read Shatter Me in a day last November. It was so shiny and pretty I just couldn't resist it. Oh! I could gush about that book all day but I'm not. Now that I've managed to snag a giveaway and I chose Unravel Me I can't wait to read it and especially Destroy Me. We finally get a peek inside Warner's head. Mmmm...I love that boy. Some people disagree with me but I don't care. He is my mine!

St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger...
Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.

Do I need to say why I want to read this book? I don't need to comment here. I've never bought this book because I thought (and still kind of think) that it's not my piece of cake. Vampires? I don't think so. But, yet I want to read the book. A lot of people I know love the series. I should give it a try someday soon. :]

Holy cow, ditto. I can't wait to read both UNRAVEL ME and DESTROY ME. No giveaway for me, though. :( I have to wait!

I read VA and was surprised that I liked it! Actually, I think I've read the first three. :)
