Wishlist Wednesday #12

Every Wednesday, Dani at Pen To Paper features Wishlist Wednesday, a meme in which you can list a book that you really want to read or keep meaning to get. These are books that you want to add to your wishlist, and believe me there are plenty!  I've decided to use Dani's feature every Wednesday :)

So what do you need to do to join in?
  • Follow Pen to Paper as host of the meme.
  • Pick a book from your wishlist that you are dying to get to put on your shelves.
  • Do a post telling your readers about the book and why it's on your wishlist.
  • Add your blog to the linky at the bottom of her post.
  • Put a link back to pen to paper (http://vogue-pentopaper.blogspot.com) somewhere in your post.
  • Visit the other blogs and enjoy!

So here is my book for this weeks Wishlist Wednesday:
 
 
Another Faust (Another #1) by Daniel & Dina Nayeri 

Goodreads Synopsis:
A devilish debut by a brother-sister team invites us into the world of the elite Marlowe School, where some gifted students are having a hell of a year.

One night, in cities all across Europe, five children vanish — only to appear, years later, at an exclusive New York party with a strange and elegant governess. Rumor and mystery follow the Faust teenagers to the city’s most prestigious high school, where they soar to suspicious heights with the help of their benefactor’s extraordinary "gifts." But as the students claw their way up — reading minds, erasing scenes, stopping time, stealing power, seducing with artificial beauty — they start to suffer the sideeffects of their own addictions. And as they make further deals with the devil, they uncover secrets more shocking than their most unforgivable sins. At once chilling and wickedly satirical, this contemporary reimagining of the Faustian bargain is a compelling tale of ambition, consequences, and ultimate redemption
.


I was given the third book in the series (Another Jekyll, Another Hyde) to review by Netgalley. Another Faust is the first book.  I like the look of this series, it sounds brilliant.  I want to read book two as well.  So far there are three books in the Another series, hopefully there will be more.  I hope I get a copy soon!!

Oh, I love the sound of this one! It's kind of Harry Potter-ish (based on the synopsis), I'm quite curious now. I think I'll need to add this to my ever growing wishlist, haha ^^

I actually found this book in Borders some time ago..looks interesting but I kind of imagined it being sort Gossip Girl + Harry Potter what with the rich & gorgeous kids gracing the cover.
