Bad Taste in Boys-Carrie Harris
Publication Date: July, 2011
Kate Grable is horrified to find out that the football coach has given the team steroids. Worse yet, the steriods are having an unexpected effect, turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless flesh-eating zombies. No one is safe--not her cute crush Aaron, not her dorky brother, Jonah . . . not even Kate!
I've been excited for this one since I first heard about it. It sounds cute and it's got zombies!

Publication Date: January 25, 2011
The magical new novel from number one bestseller Cecelia Ahern. Tamara Goodwin has always got everything she's ever wanted. Born into a family of wealth, she grew up in a mansion with its own private beach, a wardrobe full of designer clothes and all that a girl could ever wish for. She's always lived in the here and now, never giving a second thought to tomorrow. But then suddenly her dad is gone and life for Tamara and her mother changes forever. Left with a mountain of debt, they have no choice but to sell everything they own and move to the country. Nestled next to Kilsaney Castle, their gatehouse is a world away from Tamara's childhood. With her mother shut away with grief, and her aunt busy tending to her, Tamara is lonely and bored and longs to return to Dublin.When a travelling library passes through Kilsaney Demesne, Tamara is intrigued. Her eyes rest on a mysterious large leather bound tome locked with a gold clasp and padlock. What she discovers within the pages takes her breath away and shakes her world to its core.
I've heard very good things about this book. I like that the protagonist is a teenage girl, but yet this isn't young adult fiction. It sounds like a fascinating read, I hope it can live up to the synopsis!
An Object of Beauty: A Novel-Steve Martin
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Publication Date: November, 2010 (2nd printing)
Lacey Yeager is young, captivating, and ambitious enough to take the NYC art world by storm. Groomed at Sotheby's and hungry to keep climbing the social and career ladders put before her, Lacey charms men and women, old and young, rich and even richer with her magnetic charisma and liveliness. Her ascension to the highest tiers of the city parallel the soaring heights - and, at times, the dark lows - of the art world and the country from the late 1990s through today.
I first heard Steve Martin discuss this book on television a few months ago. The premise sounded really interesting to me. I've always been fascinated by the art world, and who doesn't love Steve Martin?
That's it for my wish list this week, what's on yours?
