11022012: On My Wishlist (6)


On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City
Prozac Nation: A harrowing story of breakdowns, suicide attempts, drug therapy, and an eventual journey back to living, this poignant and often hilarious book gives voice to the high incidence of depression among America's youth. A collective cry for help from a generation who have come of age entrenched in the culture of divorce, economic instability, and AIDS, here is the intensely personal story of a young girl full of promise, whose mood swings have risen and fallen like the lines of a sad ballad.

Evolve:
 
New Vampires have evolved, and they are coming for you! Kelly Armstrong, Tanya Huff and twenty-two other dark fantasy and horror writers come together to re-imagine the future of vampires in this new collection of all-original short fiction – one of the most unusual and original vampire anthologies ever assembled.

Memoirs of a Violent Sleeper: 
Steven suffers from an extremely rare and scary sleep disorder that causes sufferers to violently and physically act out their brain's dreams. Ever since his first bizarre, embarrassing occurrence at the age of seven, he has felt isolated and has cried out for love and acceptance from his family, all the while pushing them further and further away. His extreme fear of commitment and his anxiety, fuelled by this embarrassing disorder, sends him into a dangerous world of strippers, prostitutes, drugs, and alcohol. That is, until Gina walks into his life. With a cast of quirky characters, a satirical and funny look at society and beyond, Memoirs of a Violent Sleeper takes you through an extraordinary story of the darker side of love.
