It's my birthday on Saturday so I thought I'd share some of the books that are on my wishlist for then (descriptions from Goodreads):
Entwined by Heather Dixon
Daughter Of Xanadu by Dori Jones Yang
Dori came on the blog to do a guest post a few months ago so really want to finally be able to read her book! I love the sound of the setting of Daughter Of Xandu because it's unusual and different from many Tudor and Victorian set YA historicals.
In Waterfall, American teenager Gabi Betarrini accidently finds herself in fourteenth-century Italy . . . Knights. Swords. Horses. Armor. And Italian hotties. Most American teens want an Italian vacation, but the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives there with their archaeologist parents. Stuck on yet another hot, dusty dig, they are bored out of their minds... until they place their hands atop handprints in an ancient tomb and find themselves catapulted into the fourteenth-century—and in the middle of a fierce battle between knights bent on killing one another.
Thia regency romance for teens is a sequel to Anna And The The Duke, which I read last year and really enjoyed.
Hoping to escape the troubles in her kingdom, Princess Poppy reluctantly agrees to take part in a royal exchange program, whereby young princes and princesses travel to each other's countries in the name of better political alliances—and potential marriages. It's got the makings of a fairy tale—until a hapless servant named Eleanor is tricked by a vengeful fairy godmother into competing with Poppy for the eligible prince. Ballgowns, cinders, and enchanted glass slippers fly in this romantic and action-packed happily-ever-after quest from an author with a flair for embroidering tales in her own delightful way.
This is the sequel to Princess Of The Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George that I read last week and carries on the story of one of the characters from there. I really liked the first book so I'm looking forward to continuing the story of one of the Princesses sometime soon.
I'll be sharing the books I got for my birthday in this Sunday's In My Mailbox!
