On My Wishlist (September 9)


On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City. But I deviated a little from the way it's done over there. I will post, every Friday, one to three (because I have to give myself a limit) books that I'd love to get my hands on. They can be old, new, or forthcoming releases.

My Wishlist:

Heist Society by Ally Carter
SYNOPSIS VIA GOODREADS

When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her on a trip to the Louvre…to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to Austria…to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own—scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving “the life” for a normal life proves harder than she’d expected.

Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring Kat back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has a good reason: a powerful mobster has been robbed of his priceless art collection and wants to retrieve it. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat’s dad needs her help.

For Kat, there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it's a spectacularly impossible job? She's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family's history--and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.


Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong
SYNOPSIS VIA GOODREADS

 A journey may take hundreds of miles, or it may cover the distance between duty and desire.


Sixteen of today’s hottest writers of paranormal tales weave stories on a common theme of journeying. Authors such as Kelley Armstrong, Rachel Caine, and Melissa Marr return to the beloved worlds of their bestselling series, while others, like Claudia Gray, Kami Garcia, and Margaret Stohl, create new land-scapes and characters. But whether they’re writing about vampires, faeries, angels, or other magical beings, each author explores the strength and resilience of the human heart.
 
Suspenseful, funny, or romantic, the stories in Enthralled will leave you moved.

I haven't gotten the chance to purchase Heist Society, but I'm really curious to see if it's as good as I've heard it is. Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions is an anthology releasing in the U.S. on September 20, 2011. What do you think of these books?

I really want to read Enthralled too - what great authors! I keep hearing about Heist Society too, I haven't read any Ally Carter yet though.

Hope you get to read and enjoy both of these. :)
