On My Wishlist

On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted over on the awesome Book Chick City blog. Anyone can take part and lets face it who doesn't have a book wishlist? Dead people that's who. Well I'm certainly still breathing and currently I'm desperate to get my hands on these beauties.

Obviously! I can't wait to get this beauty on my shelves it feels like an age since I finished Magic Bleeds, and finally it's out now. Get me to Atlanta!

If there's one series of books I wish I could erase from my mind and read all over again and again it's the tales of Lady Julia Grey and the awesomely serious Nicholas Brisbane. The last in the saga, The Dark Road to Darjeeling, had me in tears so I wait with baited breath to see where Ms. Raybourn takes me next. Out 21st June.

Oh Miss Carriger! How you make me wait! This is one of those series I had the (mis)fortune of discovering right at the very beginning, and man, I have suffered that long desolate wait between installments. But it has always been worth it. I'm so looking forward to learning more about Alexia's father! Out 7th July.

Arhg! When is this being released? No one seems to know, not even the author it seems whose website:  still says September 2010! But goodness me, I really want to read this book, I must know what is going to happen to Sir Maurice Newbury and Miss Veronica Hobbs!

Another book I have had to wait and wait for. And there is still more waiting to be done! If you haven't yet picked up The Lies of Locke Lamora then you must. Thievery, confidence tricksters, and double..nay triple upon quadruple crossings! And then Red Seas Under Red Skies, as above but with pirates! The 17th November cannot come soon enough.

How frustrating to not know when/if a book is coming out. I just finished The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan so now I'm wishing for The Son of Neptune. I'm also making good progress on crossing books off my wishlist. Come see!
