ON MY WISHLIST: ONCE A WITCH AND 0.4

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where you can list all the books you desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.
My first one for this this week is Once a Witch, because I love a good old witch story. It was released last year but I never got around to reading it.


Once a Witch by Carolyn McCullough

Tamsin Greene comes from a long line of powerful witches, and was prophesied to be the most powerful of them all. Each witch in the Greene family has a special Talent, but Tamsin's Talent never showed up turning the prophesy into a cruel joke. Now she's 17 and spends most of her time away at boarding school, only returning to her hometown when she is forced to come back and work in the family bookstore. But when a stranger comes into her family's store and, mistaking Tamsin for her extremely talented sister Rowena, asks for help finding an old clock Tamsin sets a chain of events into motion that will change her life forever.

My second choice is 0.4 by Mike Lancaster came out earlier this year. It just sounds so intriguing and I'm really loving dystopian stories right now.


It's a brave new world.
'My name is Kyle Straker. And I don't exist anymore.'
So begins the story of Kyle Straker, recorded onto old audiotapes. You might think these tapes are a hoax, but perhaps they contain the history of a past world....If what the tapes say is true, it means that everything we think we know is a lie.
And if everything we know is a lie, does that mean that we are, too?

What's on your wishlist?

I am also a new follower!

I love finding other UK bloggers :D

I am also trying to write a YA, sometimes I love it and sometimes I find it really, really tough going.
