Wish List Wednesday hosted by Pen to Paper

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted at Pen to Paper!

Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano

On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where 16-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan's older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in best friend Pen and her betrothed, Basil.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy being blamed for the murder — betrothed to the victim — but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find — or who she will lose. 

Lauren has become one of my favorite authors, simply because she seems so down to earth. Her twitter is always cracking me up, her books are always very well rounded, and despite my own hang ups with this book. I totally had a character named Judas who lives on a flying Steampunk island. (click that)
And I'm trying so hard to be the bigger person and not cry like a little bitch. Really I can't wait. 

I have to say I'm pretty excited to read this book. I haven't had the chance to read the third book in her first series yet, but I loved the first two so much I'm itching to get through the few ARCs I have to get to reading what I want again. Lauren seems like such a nice girl, and even put one of her 'poor' reviews as her twitter background, 

It just really says something about a person who can roll with the harsh things people say, and how much of a strong person she must be to just be able to brush off the ignorant things people say. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but like I said before--it just better be an educated one. Find that post here.

For more information about Lauren find her website here:

For more information about Clockwork RPG, a great place with some pretty awesome players check it out here: 

I'm trying so hard to not be a jealous bitch, this is not the first flying island in history, and Judas is the most common bad guy name right?? Right?? Emily?? Right?? Though if he sprouts bat wings put together by dicey science so help me bob, Imma go on a witch hunt. 

In all seriousness, role playing forums are one of the best way to build characters for your own stories. It's a great way to flesh out little kinks and faults in their story lines or personality. There is a thin line between right and wrong when taking them for your own books, but I scrapped my novel last year; moving forward with another. But check out Clockwork, it's a lot of fun!

Next time i'll probably do this meme, so catch that one here:

  1. UGH THE IDEA FOR THIS BOOK GIVES ME SUCH THE BONER. Bravo, Lauren DeStef. Imma read your book so hard.

  2. Good pick! I still have to read the author's books but I am curious about this one as well.
    Hope you get it soon!

  3. I like an author that knows she will never please everyone and shrugs off the horrible comments. For me, I can dislike a book but I'm not nasty to the author because of it.

  4. WOW! That is a summary! This meme just makes my TBR list grow. LOL! Thanks for the addition.

  5. I like the sound of this one. It has a nice cover too. I hope you get it soon!
