All I Want for Christmas... (5)

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:

Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas

16074758From Goodreads:

"It's Spring Break of senior year. Anna, her boyfriend Tate, her best friend Elise, and a few other close friends are off to a debaucherous trip to Aruba that promises to be the time of their lives. But when Elise is found brutally murdered, Anna finds herself trapped in a country not her own, fighting against vile and contemptuous accusations.

As Anna sets out to find her friend's killer; she discovers hard truths about her friendships, the slippery nature of truth, and the ache of young love.

As she awaits the judge's decree, it becomes clear that everyone around her thinks she is not just guilty, but dangerous. When the truth comes out, it is more shocking than one could ever imagine...
When this book first starting floating around the blogosphere, I kinda dismissed it as a sort of fluffy, 'mystery-lite' read in the vein of Gossip Girl or Pretty Little Liars, which isn't really my style. And let's face it, that title and cover don't exactly exude a serious vibe.

But then I saw that Racquel over at The Book Barbies was raving about it, and we chatted on Twitter and she persuaded me that it is indeed a well-plotted, intense read worthy of my time. So it made its way onto my Christmas list! 

What books are you hoping to find under the tree?
