Books on my wish list

To change the usual procedure of review after review I thought it would be nice to talk from time to time about books I have on my wish list. All books are already published, so you can buy them right away. I plan to do so soon through my local bookstore. 

I think I will do another post like that soon, because there are a lot of books on my wish list. Some more YA books, but also many contemporary romances and books from other genres that sound amazing. 

Imprudence (The Custard Protocol) - Gail Carriger

The second book in the Custard Protocol series was just released and this steampunk YA book is one I need in my life soon. I read and enjoyed book #1, Prudence, in the series a few month ago and I'm ready for more charming and hilarious adventures by Gail Carriger. 

All the birds in the skyCharlie Jane Anders

As soon as I saw the beautiful cover of this book, I needed to find out more about the story. Would the content sound as compelling as the book looks? It does! Witches and scientists are important characters in the story and then there is this secret organization. Plus the story is about being different, about friendship and more. This definitely sounds amazing and like a book I need in my life. 

Love, Lucy - April Lindner

The paperback version of this YA romance was just released and I have been waiting for this day for quiet some time now. I like YA romances without constant dramatic developments, YA romances that are light-hearted, charming and that focus on the characters and offer a great setting (Italy), I think that "Love, Lucy" could include all of that. 

A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent (Memoir By Lady Trent 1) - Marie Brennan

This is a fantasy book that looks and sounds unlike anything I have ever read. A story that should combine great characters, fantastical beings, charm and adventure. Our main character is a dragon naturalist and also a Lady. Need I say more?

A Veronica Speedwell Mystery - A Curious Beginning - Deanna Rayburn

This historical mystery, the first in a new series, comes highly recommended by some of my favourite book bloggers, so of course I looked at the book more closely. The story promises a thrilling adventure, the book is set in Victorian England and should also come with strong characters, all very good reasons to buy and read it. 

Which books do you plan to buy soon?

Appealed - Emma Chase

contemporary romance
#3 in the The Legal Briefs series
in the court room they are opponents
but outside they can't deny their attraction
even though it complicates everything
in the past she admired him
until he humiliated her
now she doesn't want anything to do with him
but he wants to see where their attraction leads them
this series is one I have heard amazing things about in the last months
ever since the first book "Overruled" was published
I saw review after review praising the series
now I finally read a book in the series myself
and yes, I overall enjoyed the story
I liked the writing style and the banters
but I struggled a bit with the male main character
and consequently with the romance
so I liked the book but didn't love it
this seems to be the case with a lot of the contemporary romances 
I recently read
right now I have no real interest in the other books of the series
their plots don't appeal to me that much
and lawyers as main characters are often not perfect for me
I have no interest in all of the courtroom stuff
if you like contemporary romances
then I would definitely check out the series
make sure to read some excerpts
and maybe the books will be great for you.

Foreplay - Sophie Jordan

new adult romance
#1 in the Ivy Chronicles
she is pretty inexperienced
and wants to change that
he seems to be the guy to help her
just a little foreplay
falling in love was never part of the plan
I enjoyed this NA romance overall
I like the author's writing style
she made it easy for me to get into a good reading flow
and to enjoy my time
I liked the characters
and their romance
the one thing I didn't love about the story is
that I read too many similar NA books in the last years
books with similar characters
books with very predictable plots
that's something that doesn't always bother me
but with "Foreplay" it annoyed me a bit
I'm not sure if I will read the other books in the series
if you like mostly light-hearted contemporary NA romances
then this book could be for you.
