On My Wishlist: July 30, 2011: 07/30/11
This week I finished Eye of the Crow by Shane Peacock and Bagelmania by Mountain Lion Books. Peacock's book is a Sherlock Holmes mystery, billed as his first. Like the movie, Young Sherlock Holmes, he's 13. Unlike the Enola Holmes series (see The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets by Nancy Springer), Holmes is just one step up from being a street urchin. His gentry mother was disowned when she married a Jewish immigrant and they are struggling to make ends meet. Holmes has been arrested as an accomplice to a murder near a Muslim run butchers. Both boys (Holmes and Mohammed) are innocent and they will have to work together to prove it.
The other wishlist book I finished is Bagelmania which is one of those odd ball books one sometimes finds in the foods section of a book store. It's part history, part social commentary and part cook book. It's completely fascinating.
I ended up sending back The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer unread because I just wasn't in the mood for such a long book. I will try again later.
This week I plan to start The Wide-awake Princess by E. D. Baker, finish the first Emily the Strange book.
My wishlist is at 871 and increase of 7 books from last week.
Upcoming wishlist reads include (they are in my hands waiting to be read):
The Featured Wish for July 30, 2010:
Coastliners by Joanne Harris
I have been working on my blog archives, cleaning up code rot. I came across my review of Gentlemen & Players and felt like I wanted to read something else by her. From the list GoodReads gave me, Coastliners looked the most interesting.

Nice list. I really want to read PARANORMALCY because I've heard so many great things about it.

I loved Paranormalcy, it was one of my favourite books of the year! I really want to read The Replacement too - and The Wide-Awake Princess is a really cute read :).

The Replacement is on my wishlist as well and I should put Inside Out on my TBR list. Thanks for sharing your goodreads shelves with me last week. Here is my wishlist post for this week.

I liked The Replacement ... can't wait to hear what you think of it

Even after I get it read it will take me a while to get the review up. I have such a long queue of reviews waiting to post.

I loved Young Sherlock Holmes so I must try Eye of the Crow. Inside Out is on my wishlist too but it'll probably be ages before I get to it. I'll keep an eye out for your review.

Eye of the Crow is really good. I will get to Inside Out soon.

I've read this - must admit to finding it slow going in places but that could have also been down to the mood I was in at the time! Good story!

Thanks. I'm still intrigued enough to give it a read.
