What I'm Desperately Wanting:

There are a few YA books I've been eying that seem to be on the "Tugging on the Heartstrings" side. These are the few I've been looking at and will try to make room for on the book budget soon.

In Honor
In Honor by Jessi Kirby
Releases: May 8th, 2012

Hours after her brother’s military funeral, Honor opens the last letter Finn ever sent. In her grief, she interprets his note as a final request and spontaneously decides to go to California to fulfill it.

Honor gets as far as the driveway before running into Rusty, Finn’s best friend since third grade and his polar opposite. She hasn’t seen Rusty in ages, but it’s obvious he is as arrogant and stubborn as ever—not to mention drop-dead gorgeous. Despite Honor’s better judgment, the two set off together on a voyage from Texas to California. Along the way, they find small and sometimes surprising ways to ease their shared loss and honor Finn’s memory—but when shocking truths are revealed at the end of the road, will either of them be able to cope with the consequences?
Someone Else's Life Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale
Released: Feb 2nd, 2012

When seventeen-year-old Rosie’s mother, Trudie, dies from Huntington’s Disease, her pain is intensified by the knowledge that she has a fifty-per-cent chance of inheriting the crippling disease herself. Only when she tells her mum’s best friend, ‘Aunt Sarah’ that she is going to test for the disease does Sarah, a midwife, reveal that Trudie was not her biological mother after all... Devastated, Rosie decides to trace her real mother, hitching along on her ex-boyfriend’s GAP year to follow her to Los Angeles. But all does not go to plan, and as Rosie discovers yet more of her family's deeply-buried secrets and lies, she is left with an agonising decision of her own - one which will be the most heart-breaking and far-reaching of all...

Dead to You Dead to You by Lisa McMann
Released: Feb 7th, 2012
Ethan was abducted from his front yard when he was just seven years old. Now, at sixteen, he has returned to his family. It's a miracle... at first. Then the tensions start to build. His reintroduction to his old life isn't going smoothly, and his family is tearing apart all over again. If only Ethan could remember something, anything, about his life before, he'd be able to put the pieces back together. But there's something that's keeping his memory blocked. Something unspeakable...

Nice list. I usually only read YA if they are paranormal in nature.

Take a look at my DWW

I have yet to read my eARC of SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE (which I've heard so many good things about), but the other two books are on my to-read/to-buy list as well. Awesome picks!

"In Honor" just looks like its storyline would make a great country music song :)

I've gotten on a YA kick for the last few months. I really enjoy the romantic tension that doesn't seem to last in the adult versions.
