On My Wishlist #4

WishlistOn My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It’s a meme where participants list books they want but haven’t actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.

Hero: The Life and Legend of Lawrence of Arabia Hero: The Life and Legend of Lawrence of Arabia by Michael Korda – I don’t read a lot of non-fiction, but I recently watched Lawrence of Arabia and I’d like to learn more about the real T. E. Lawrence.

The Mercenary The Mercenary by Cornelia Grey – The cover is a little…weird. But I love the premise: Now that a monstrous London machine has stolen the clouds from the sky, Asher Connor survives by selling his mercenary skills to transport water across York’s wasted moorland. Until his unit is attacked by a pack of Tamer-controlled wolves, and his ingenious mechanical arm fails.

He awakens, surprised to find he’s still alive—and dependent on a charming, attractive, utterly infuriating desert-dweller. The copper-eyed, untamed Gabriel is Asher’s only hope. At least until he reaches a technician who can repair his arm. Reluctant trust turns to desire in the wake of another Tamer attack, and the adrenaline rush locks them in a bond of wildfire lust.

Sins of the House of Borgia by Sarah Bower Sins of the House of Borgia by Sarah Bower – I love historical fiction about bad and/or manipulative people.

Please be sure to link me to your posts and also to click on the book covers if you’d like to learn more about any of these titles!

About April

I'm a librarian, reader, and writer whose main goal in life is to be able to swim in books the way Scrooge McDuck swims in money. Although my reading choices will always be wildly eclectic and I never plan on leaving any genre unexplored, my favorite reads tend to be Fantasy, Young Adult, Science Fiction, Gay Romance, or Historical Fiction.

  3. Hello!

    In case you’re interested, I’m holding a contest to win a copy of the Mercenary on my blog and livejournal.

    I just read Korda’s “Hero.” Really good read. About half way through, I decided I would read Lawrence’s “Seven Pillars of Wisdom” (which I have yet to start, but its waiting for me).

    • Very cool! I would definitely love to read both of those books. I tend to be really slow when it comes to Non-Fiction though. I get so distracted.

      • Beth says:

        Korda has a very readable writing style. The most daunting thing about reading it (for me) was not having a map of the Middle East on hand while reading, as my knowledge of geography, while better than some, is a bit spotty.
