On My Wishlist (72)

On My Wishlist

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where I list all the books I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. If you want to know more click here.

Dragon Bound (Elder Races, #1) by Thea Harrison

Half-human and half-wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful-and passionate-of the Elder races.

Deadly Sins by Kylie Brant

An unknown assassin has appointed himself judge, jury, and executioner, brutally taking out high-level human targets citywide. And the list of suspects is a sensitive one: an Iranian diplomat, a U.S. senator, and a vengeful priest. It's just the kind of case to test the resolve of tough FBI agent, Jaid Marlowe. Especially when her new partner is Adam Raiker, Jaid's former colleague and ex-lover. But that's history—and it left scars.

Determined to leave it behind them, Jaid and Adam dive into the most shocking investigation of their careers. But when Adam himself becomes a suspect, Jaid must choose between past and present. Her choice plunges them into a far-reaching, high-level conspiracy of shadows—and on the run not only from secrets and lies, but for their lives. Now, despite their history, they have only each other, and the desperate hope that love can keep them alive.


In Close (Bulletproof, #3) by Brenda Novak

Claire O'Toole's mother, Alana, went missing fifteen years ago. That was big news in Pineview, Montana, the kind of town where nothing much ever happens. Then, last year, Claire's husband, David, died in a freak accident — after launching his own investigation into Alana's disappearance.

Is Alana dead? Or did she simply abandon her husband and daughters? Claire's determined to find out — and her former boyfriend, Isaac Morgan, wants to help. Although their relationship didn't end well, he still has feelings for her. And yet it isn't until he starts to suspect David's death wasn't an accident that he's drawn back into her life.

Together, Claire and Isaac search for answers to the questions that have haunted Pineview all this time. But as they soon discover, someone's prepared to kill so those answers won't be found. . .


The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line.

Some riders live.
Others die.

At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn't given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.

Here is mine

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Great choices... I'm especially curious about the Scorpion Races.

Amanda @ On a Book Bender said...

Oh my, like many people have already said, Dragon Bound is so very good!

JenM said...

I adored Dragon Bound, although I'm not sure exactly why. It has every paranormal cliche you could imagine plus some pretty cheesy dialog and yet somehow it all just works. I've already reread it a couple of times.

Book Angel Emma said...

Scorpio Races - cant wait for that one :D

Alyssa@Teens Read and Write said...

I think Scorpio Races sounds more interesting than the SHIVER series. I love horses!

Melina said...


I just got The Scorpio Races and I am looking forward to reading it. I hope we both enjoy it.

Bungle said...

My good friend Nic over at Scorching Book Reviews loved Dragon Bound, I'm really looking forward to reading it!


Kelli (I'd So Rather Be Reading) said...

I am eager to read another Stiefvater after finishing Forever. You definitely have to be in the mood for a Maggie book, but they are really good!
