All I Want For Christmas Is...

Remember this feature from last year?  Well, I'm doing it again! 

All I Want For Christmas Is... is a feature hosted by Danya from A Tapestry of Words.  So, basically all you do in this feature is pick a book that you desperately want for Christmas that is on your wish list!  It's almost like Waiting on Wednesday, but instead, you choose a book that's already out :) 

This week I want...

Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1)

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages--not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.

When one of the strangers--beautiful, haunted Akiva--fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?
Doesn't this sound really good??  I've only heard really good things about it so far.  The cover is absolutely gorgeous, too :)

What's on your wishlist for Christmas?
