On My Wishlist #3: Sing Me To Sleep

On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City where you can talk about a book you want to read but haven't actually bought yet.

My pick for this week is...

Sing Me To Sleep by Angela Morrison
(Amazon / Goodreads)

Goodreads description:

Beth has always been “The Beast”—that's what everyone at school calls her because of her awkward height, facial scars, and thick glasses. Beth's only friend is geeky, golden-haired Scott. That is, until she's selected to be her choir's soprano soloist, and receives the makeover that will change her life forever.
When Beth's choir travels to Switzerland, she meets Derek: pale, brooding, totally dreamy. Derek's untethered passion—for music, and for Beth—leaves her breathless. Because in Derek's eyes? She's not The Beast, she's The Beauty.
When Beth comes home, Scott, her best friend in the world, makes a confession that leaves her completely torn. Should she stand by sweet, steady Scott or follow the dangerous, intense new feelings she has for Derek?
The closer Beth gets to Derek, the further away he seems. Then Beth discovers that Derek's been hiding a dark secret from her …one that could shatter everything.

The plot sounds only average, but this book has gotten glowing reviews - the writing is supposed to be great and the story so heartbreaking and moving it'll make you cry. That sounds perfect for me (not because I'm a depressed person or anything, I just like sad books). I hope I'll get to read it soon!

What's on your wishlist this week?


  1. I like sad books too for some reason. Moving stories are amazing. I enjoyed this book overall. :)
