All I Want For Christmas is a meme/feature held by Danya @ A Tapestry of Words that encourages bloggers to post about the books on their Christmas wishlist! If you haven't heard of it or participated yet, I'm sure it's not too late even though we are only a few days away from Christmas now so head over to A Tapestry Of Words and link up.
I really enjoyed doing part 1 of my All I Want For Christmas posts so here's another....
Sailing aboard her father’s trade ship is all seventeen-year-old Camille Rowen has ever wanted. But as a girl of society in 1855 San Francisco, her future is set: marry a man she doesn’t love, or condemn herself and her father to poverty.
On her final voyage before the wedding, the stormy arms of the Tasman Sea claim her father, and a terrible family secret is revealed. A secret intertwined with a fabled map, the mother Camille has long believed dead, and an ancient stone that wields a dangerous—and alluring—magic.
Beautifully written and feverishly paced, Everlasting is an unforgettable journey of passion, secrecy, and adventure.
Anastasia's Secret by Susanne Dunlap:
Inspired by the mysteries that have long surrounded the last days of the Romanov family, Susanne Dunlap's new novel is a haunting vision of the life - and love story - of Russia's last princess.
Why: I loved Susanne Dunlaps new 2011 book In The Shadow Of The Lamp and although I don't really know that much about it, I've always been fascinated by Anastasia's story.
Princess Of The Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George
Captivating from start to finish, Jessica Day George’s take on the Grimms’ tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses demonstrates yet again her mastery at spinning something entirely fresh out of a story you thought you knew.
After Christmas I will be doing a post telling you which books I did get for Christmas so look out!
