Wish List Wednesday (66)

Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver, October 4, 2011. Published by HarperCollins.
Liesl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Her only friends are the shadows and the mice—until one night a ghost appears from the darkness. It is Po, who comes from the Other Side. Both Liesl and Po are lonely, but together they are less alone.
That same night, an alchemist's apprentice, Will, bungles an important delivery. He accidentally switches a box containing the most powerful magic in the world with one containing something decidedly less remarkable
Will's mistake has tremendous consequences for Liesl and Po, and it draws the three of them together on an extraordinary journey.
Why: Because I think that Liesl & Po sounds fantastic, plus I could so go for adding another mid-grade read to my reading list. Also, I just adore the cover and title for it.

Wild Ones 1 by Kiyo Fujiwara, 2007. Published by Viz Media LLC.
Sachie Wakamura just lost her mother, and her estranged grandfather has shown up to take care of her. The only problem is that grandpa is the head of a yakuza gang! Too scared to join her new family, Sachie tries to continue living her normal life. She can't run far though, since one of the most popular guys in school is part of her grandfather's gang and her new protector. No one at school knows about Rakuto's hidden life, and soon Sachie finds herself falling for her bodyguard. But she's the granddaughter of Rakuto's boss, and he can never show his feelings for her. Can Sachie find a way to fit into her new family and grab her chance at love?
Why: Wild Ones makes my WLW this week because it sounds like it will be a laugh, kind of along the lines of Gentleman's Alliance Cross (which I highly enjoyed reading earlier this year).
