First of all, I'd like to thank ApoloniaX for passing the wishlist book 'The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society' on to me- that's one more ticked off my wishlist.
I've been adding quite a lot to my wishlist recently now that I've started following more and more blogs. So I'd like to share with you my some of my most recent additions to my wishlist:
Magyk by Angie Sage
The Magyk Begins Here
Leo the African by Amin Malouf
From his chlidhood in Fez, having fled the Christian Inquisition, through his many journeys to the East as an itinerant merhcant, Hasans story is a quixotic catalogue of pirates, slave girls and princesses, encompassing the complexities of a world in a state of religious flux. Hasan too is touched by the instability of the era, performing his hadj to Mecca, then converting to Christianity, only to relapse back to the Muslim faith later in life. In re-creating his extraordinary experiences, Amin Maalouf sketches an irrisistible portrait of the Mediterranea world as it was nearly five centuries ago - the fall of Granada, the Ottoman conquest of Egypt, Renaissance Rome under the Medicis: all contribute to a background of spectacular colour, matched only by the picaresque adventures of Hasan's life.
Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder
Keep Your Head Down.Don't Get Noticed.Or Else.I'm Trella. I'm a scrub. A nobody. One of thousands who work the lower levels, keeping Inside clean for the Uppers. I've got one friend, do my job and try to avoid the Pop Cops. So what if I occasionally use the pipes to sneak around the Upper levels? The only neck at risk is my ownhellip;until I accidentally start a rebellion and become the go-to girl to lead a revolution.
