Wishlist Wednesday: Wolves, Boys and Other Things...


A weekly event on my blog where I post about books (not necessarily pre-release or new) that I've just added to my wishlist, along with a little blurb on why I want to read it.
(hosted by Book Chick City & Breaking the Spine)


Wolves, Boys and Other Things That Might Kill Me
by Kristen Chandler
release date: 13 May 2010
When KJ Carson is assigned to write a column for her school newspaper about the wolves in nearby Yellowstone National Park, she’s more interested in impressing Virgil Whitman, the new kid in school and the photographer assigned as her partner, than in investigative journalism. But before long, KJ has a face-to-face encounter with a wolf that changes her and the way she thinks about wolves. With her new found passion for protecting these controversial animals, KJ inadvertently ignites the fuse of the anti-wolf sentiment in the community. First Virgil is injured during a town parade, and then her father’s store is set on fire in retribution. To stop the escalating violence, KJ follows Virgil to the cattle ranch of the most outspoken anti-wolf activists in town, against her father’s will. What she discovers there threatens everything and everyone she cares about. In KJ’s fierce and funny attempt to make peace between the wolves and the people that despise them, she must first face her own long-held fears.

Why it's on my wishlist
I've always loved wolves as animals, so an entire story about their controversial nature (one of the reasons I love them) makes for an amazing incentive to me. I also like stories where people are forced into something they don't really care for, and then unexpectedly really liking it. Plus, the cover is pretty 8D

LOL I'm so used to your uber long booklist that I thought the page wasn't loading properly. Anyhow, interesting premise. Tell me how the book goes if/when you read it

I came here from Jill's waiting on Wednesday post, it's interesting to see how everybody has an upcoming new release that they want to read, and every body is so different. I don't have any now and I won't have any in 2010 because I have bought too many books in the past and I haven't caught up with my reading. I started my blog because I wanted to start documenting all the books that I bought and they are sitting in my house suffocating me.... I am slowly documenting them in the wish list section of my blog, so I can look at it and be reminded everyday that I have all these books lying in my shelf, underneath my bed, in my closet, on my dining table and kitchen counter that I had not even opened....I think I must have obsessive book buying behavior...
