All I Want for Christmas... (3)

Every year my mom asks me to send her my book wishlist for Christmas, since it just isn't Christmas without books. In the hopes of getting some content onto this blog more regularly, I'll be posting my book wishlist picks on here.

If anyone would like to join in with picks from their own wishlist, please feel free to add your link in the comments :) And if you've read any of the books on my list, let me know what you thought of them (good, bad, or otherwise!)

This week's pick:

Pre-order of Rivals in the City by Y.S. Lee
From Goodreads:

"In a tale steeped in action, romance, and the gaslit intrigue of Victorian London, Mary Quinn’s detective skills are pitted against a cunning and desperate opponent. Mary Quinn has a lot on her mind. James Easton, her longtime love interest, wants to marry her; but despite her feelings, independent-minded Mary hesitates. Meanwhile, the Agency has asked Mary to take on a dangerous case: convicted fraudster Henry Thorold is dying in prison, and Mary must watch for the return of his estranged wife, an accomplished criminal herself who has a potentially deadly grudge against James. Finally, a Chinese prizefighter has arrived in town, and Mary can’t shake a feeling that he is somehow familiar. With the stakes higher than ever, can Mary balance family secrets, conflicting loyalties, and professional expertise to bring a criminal to justice and find her own happiness?"
This is the final book in the Agency series and one that I can't wait to get my hot little hands on! I've read and own all 3 other books in the series, and I know this one is already out in the UK but I want the US edition to match my others :D Can't wait to read about Mary's (and James's) last adventure, but it will be sad knowing it's the last book! :'(

What books are you hoping Santa brings?


  1. I have not read the Agency series, but since you have read and enjoyed the others this sounds like a great pick for your Christmas list. So exciting to get books for Christmas. :)

  2. I haven't read this series but I heard good things about it. Fingers crossed that you will get it.

    I have started to do this as well and I linked back to your blog.


I love comments, so post away!
