Wishlist Wednesday!

I haven't been buying books lately because I'm back at school and away from my favorite local bookstore, and I've been too busy to do much online browsing, so my wishlist is growing at a rapid rate. Here's a sampling of the books I'm really itching to purchase.

The Uninvited by Cat Winters

I loved The Cure for Dreaming so I'm really eager to pick up Winters latest work. This is her first adult novel, and of course it's a historical fiction paranormal read. Winters is a master at this genre, and I love the way she weaved old photography into her last novel (well her last two novels, but I still need to get my hands on her debut novel, which is also on my wishlist.) This one is about the Spanish flu in 1918, the perfect setting for creepyness!

Viper Wine by Hermonie Eyre 

This book sounds so weird and interesting! It's another historical fiction novel, but I think it involves time travel and some other magical elements. I love the cover of this book, and the premise sounds so interesting. I haven't read too many reviews for it, though I have seen it around for a while.

Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth

This is a retelling of Rapunzel, which fairy tale retellings aren't usually my cup of tea, but this one has really caught my eye. I have seen a couple of good reviews for it, and it seems like the perfect book to curl up with while drinking a cup of tea this fall. 

Lair of Dream by Libba Bray 

This sequel has been on my wishlist for a very long time. I read the first book in this series The Diviners when it first came out two years ago and enjoyed it. I was eager to carry on with the series but the release date for this one kept getting pushed back and it finally came out last month. Now I really need a reread of the first book, which is no easy task because it is about 800 pages long, and this sequel is about 700 pages. I want to pick this one up, but the need for a reread of the first one is keeping me from ordering this one right away. 

Have you read any of these? Let me know your thoughts! And tell me what's on your wishlist.
