On My Wishlist (9)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City every Saturday in which we list books we desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. The books can be old, new or forthcoming.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Both of these books will be released November 23rd!



MATCHED
(Matched #1)
by Ally Condie
 
In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.
 
Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s barely any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one . . . until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.

Matched is a story for right now and storytelling with the resonance of a classic.



INVISIBLE THINGS
by Jenny Davidson
 
In an alternate 1930s Europe, sixteen-year-old Sophie and Mikael, now more than a friend, investigate her parents' death, setting off a chain of events that unravels everything she thought she knew about her family, and involving them in international intrigue and the development of the atomic bomb.

  3. Invisible Things sounds like my kind of book.

    This week I read two books off my wishlist but I added about twice as many to my list. As always, I'm wishing for a mixture of books.
