On My Wishlist #10

I've always wanted to read books by Lisa Schroeder. I was lucky enough to win I Heart You, You Haunt Me in a contest recently and I seriously love what I've read so far! It's surprising to see how much little words (it was written in verse) can make a person truly feel emotions the author trying to convey. For this week, I am craving for another books by the same author, Chasing Brooklyn and Far From You.

Title: Chasing Brooklyn
Author: Lisa Schroeder
Series: Stand Alone
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Links: Amazon | Book Depository
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Brooklyn can’t sleep. Her boyfriend, Lucca died a year ago, and now their friend Gabe has died of an overdose. Every time she closes her eyes, Gabe's ghost is there, waiting for her. She has no idea what he wants or why it isn't Lucca chasing her through her dreams. Nico can’t stop. He’s always running, trying so hard not to feel the pain of missing Lucca. But when he begins receiving messages from his dead brother, telling him to help Brooklyn, emotions come crashing to the surface. As the nightmares escalate and the messages become relentless, Nico reaches out to Brooklyn. But neither of them can admit that they're being haunted. Until they learn to let each other in, not one soul will be able to rest


Title: Far From You
Author: Lisa Schroeder
Series: Stand Alone
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Lost and alone...down the rabbit hole. Years have passed since Alice lost her mother to cancer, but time hasn't quite healed the wound. Alice copes the best she can, by writing her music, losing herself in the love of her boyfriend, and distancing herself from her father and his new wife. But when a deadly snowstorm traps Alice with her stepmother and newborn half-sister, she'll face issues she's been avoiding for too long. As Alice looks to the heavens for guidance, she discovers something wonderful. Perhaps she's not so alone after all..

My wishlist surely gets longer and longer everyday it seems! If you're participating in this meme too, please leave me a link so I can check what books you hope to get your hands on to this week. Have a great weekend everyone =)
