Wishlist Wednesday [#19]

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted @ Pen to Paper where we get to feature a book that’s been on our wishlist for a long time that we want to buy/read! I have a hugely extensive list that I keep updated over on The Book Depository so I’m never short of books that I’m wishing on.

Where do I make my lists? First and foremost I use my “sound good” shelf on Goodreads where I basically keep track of all the books I’ve encountered that tickle my fancy. BUT, The Book Depository has my most concise list of all the books that I so dearly want to throw my money at and look at one my shelf.

 This week I’m wishing on . . .

The False Prince
by Jennifer A. Nielsen


The False Prince is the thrilling first book in a brand-new trilogy filled with danger and deceit and hidden identities that will have readers rushing breathlessly to the end.

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Author: Jennifer Al. Nielsen
Published: April 2012
Publisher: Scholastic
Pages: 342 {hardback}

In a discontent kingdom, civil war is brewing. To unify the divided people, Conner, a nobleman of the court, devises a cunning plan to find an impersonator of the king’s long-lost son and install him as a puppet prince. Four orphans are recruited to compete for the role, including a defiant boy named Sage. Sage knows that Conner’s motives are more than questionable, yet his life balances on a sword’s point—he must be chosen to play the prince or he will certainly be killed. But Sage’s rivals have their own agendas as well.
As Sage moves from a rundown orphanage to Conner’s sumptuous palace, layer upon layer of treachery and deceit unfold, until finally, a truth is revealed that, in the end, may very well prove more dangerous than all of the lies taken together.
An extraordinary adventure filled with danger and action, lies and deadly truths that will have readers clinging to the edge of their seats.

I honestly love the sound of this book. An orphan impersonating the King’s long-lost son and getting caught up in a lot of trouble? Ooh, yes. This is my sort of thing. I love books about kingdoms, especially the ones that are falling apart because DRAMA!

I’ve had this book in the corner of my eye for a while and recently I’ve seen it bob up to the surface of the blogosphere a bit which has fuelled my eagerness to get around to it at some point. I definitely think that it will live up to expectations and be a wild and fast-paced ride. And I am loving the cover.

  2. THE FALSE PRINCE IS AWESOME. And hilarious. Hilariously awesome. Highly recommend.😂 Although for some bizarre reason I never finished the series (omg I am a chronic non-series-finisher) but the first book has so much sass!!!
