Books I Want SO Badly I Could Pee (6)

While lurking on Amazon and Goodreads, I come across so many books that I want SO badly I could pee. These are what I like to call my Pee-Inducing Books, or Urine-Triggering Novels. Below is my current list. Please peruse it while I go get a new pair of pants.
Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old-girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.
Why do I want Shatter Me so badly? BECAUSE IT SOUNDS LIKE THE EPITOME OF AWESOME. I even tweeted that I would sell my left kidney (or was it my right?) for an ARC of Shatter Me. It's just one of those books that I know will be on my top ten favorite books of all time, so I really want a copy.
Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's...
If that absolutely gorgeous cover isn't enough to make you pee all over your freaking pants when you see it, then the summary for the book will surely have those urinary juices flowing in no time. (Okay, even I admit that sounded nasty. I'm so sorry about that.) This reminds me a bit of the Greek myth of Hades and Persephone, which is an added bonus because I love anything that even remotely resembles that myth. WANT WANT WANT!
NEWSOUL
Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.

NOSOUL
Even Ana’s own mother thinks she’s a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she’ll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are suspicious and afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?

HEART
Sam believes Ana’s new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana’s enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?
There aren't even proper words in the English language to describe how much I want this book. And that ethereally beautiful cover makes me want to make a mask that looks like butterfly wings and wear it. Every. Single. Day. In fact, I think I will. Actually, I peed myself twice for this one. Once when I saw the cover, and again when I read the description. WANT IT!

So, what did you think of these books? Did any of them make you pee with excitement and wanting-ness?

  1. LOL you are awesome. I love this feature. It's way more fun than a simple "Waiting on Wednesday" post!

    I am peeing my pants right alongside you (at least you won't smell bad alone) for Everneath and Incarnate!! I am so freaking excited for these - STUNNING covers and the plots sound absolutely amazing. Mythology and reincarnation? SWOON.

    I've already read Shatter Me and you're to want to sell an organ. Her style of writing is holy-crap-wow! So unique!

  3. Brodie, haha, thanks! I actually never intend to, but I always end up scheduling the Pee Posts on Wednesdays.

    Gosh, aren't those covers amazing???? I give a HUGE kudos to the cover artists that put those together.

    AHH! I am DYING for a copy of Shatter Me! I've heard from so many people that it's their favorite book of 2011, or that it was mind-blowing.

  4. This is such a great feature. I'm really looking forward to Shatter Me too. It comes out like two days before my birthday so I think it'll have to be an early present to myself :)

  5. Shatter Me has such a breathtaking cover that you just have to read it! It is one of those books that I've taken notice too and it's a note of interest that I took down. Everneath too has such a beautiful cover!
