Wishlist Wednesday [#44]

Welcome back to Wednesday! I hope the day is treating you well – I watched the new episode of Sherlock (S4) this morning and I AM DESTROYED.

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 Unnaturalists

by Tiffany Trent

Genre: Sci-Fi, Steampunk, Young Adult
Author: Tiffany Trent
Published: August 2012
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Pages: 308 {hardback}

In an alternate London where magical creatures are preserved in a museum, two teens find themselves caught in a web of intrigue, deception, and danger.
Vespa Nyx wants nothing more than to spend the rest of her life cataloging Unnatural creatures in her father’s museum, but as she gets older, the requirement to become a lady and find a husband is looming large. Syrus Reed’s Tinker family has always served and revered the Unnaturals from afar, but when his family is captured to be refinery slaves, he finds that his fate may be bound up with Vespa’s—and with the Unnaturals.
As the danger grows, Vespa and Syrus find themselves in a tightening web of deception and intrigue. At stake may be the fate of New London—and the world.

To follow on a theme from last week, I present to you another Steampunk novel. This book has a whole bunch of things that tick boxes for me – Steampunk, alternate London, magical creatures, and a museum. There really is no need for me to know anything more about this book: I need it.
