Wish List Wednesday (59)

First Kill (The Slayer Chronicles, 1) by Heather Brewer, September 20, 2011. Published by Dutton Juvenile.
You've heard Vlad's side of the story . . . now, it’s Joss’s turn.
With over a million copies already in print, The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod is still sinking its fangs into new readers every day. Now, bestselling author Heather Brewer brings us the other side of the story, from the perspective of Vlad’s former friend turned mortal enemy: vampire slayer Joss Macmillan. In five books that can be read alongside Vlad Tod or entirely on their own, Joss discovers his powers as the youngest, strongest slayer in history. And just in time, too: with all the vampires running rampant, he’s going to need all the help he can get. This action-packed series will quench the thirst of even the hungriest veteran minions.
Why: While I still haven't had a chance to finish Heather Brewer's wonderful Vlad Tod series, I am already looking forward to the Slayer Chronicles.
As a master minion, I highly encourage you go forth and read the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod. See my thoughts on Eight Grade Bites.

Happy Hustle High, 1 by Rie Takada, 2003. Published by Viz Media (Shojo Beat).
What happens when an all-girls' high school reigning tomboy finds out her school is about to be filled with boys!?
Hanabi Oozora is a rambunctious 16-year-old tomboy who comes to the rescue of her less assertive friends-sometimes in exchange for food. So what does she do when, all of a sudden, her all-girls' school is about to be integrated with an all-boys' school?!
She meets and falls in love-naturally-with one of the three most popular and handsome boys in the Student Council, Yasuaki Garaku! Unfortunately, Yasuaki doesn't care for girls...and when the girls' Student Council clashes head-on with the boys' Student Council, Hanabi steps in to become a member-hoping she'll change Yasuaki's mind!
 Why: The reason I want to read Happy Hustle High is because it sounds like a mixture of Gaba Kawa and Punch!, which just so happen to by the same person (all three that is).
