Wishlist Wednesday [#39]

Welcome back to Wednesday fellow bookaholics, I hope I find you well and you haven’t been eaten by a dragon or anything in the few hours since we last talked. It’s time to turn our gaze to my magnificent wishlist and hope that it will materialise in my hands.

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 . . .


by Sharon Cameron

Genre: Young Adult, Sci-Fi [Dystopia]
Author: Sharon Cameron
Published: April 2015
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Pages: 456 {hardback}

History has a way of repeating itself. In the Sunken City that was once Paris, all who oppose the new revolution are being put to the blade. Except for those who disappear from their prison cells, a red-tipped rook feather left in their place. Is the mysterious Red Rook a savior of the innocent or a criminal?
Meanwhile, across the sea in the Commonwealth, Sophia Bellamy’s arranged marriage to the wealthy René Hasard is the last chance to save her family from ruin. But when the search for the Red Rook comes straight to her doorstep, Sophia discovers that her fiancé is not all he seems. Which is only fair, because neither is she. 
As the Red Rook grows bolder and the stakes grow higher, Sophia and René find themselves locked in a tantalizing game of cat and mouse.

I remember stumbling across this waaay before it was published and thinking yes, this shall be mine. Yet here we are, still looking at it on my wishlist, *sigh*. I can’t wait until the day where I have actually read some of the dang books I actually own and then I can treat myself to this one!

I think it’s fairly obvious why I’m in love with this. DYSTOPIAN. This is my life right now, I cannot get enough of this genre. I’ve had some sort of rebound back to a few years ago when dystopia was just eating the world up. And this one is set in Paris and it’s almost like alternate historical fiction with the whole history repeating itself business. UGH. Someone give this book to me already.

  1. I WANT TO READ THIS SO BAD. BECAUSE PARIS. I just read a few reviews that said it was really slow though, which is why I haven’t bought/read it yet. *collapses howling* I will eventually though because…Paris. I have a small obsession.😂
