On My WishList (#22)


 On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where we list all the books we desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. It's also an event that you can join in with too - Mr Linky is always at the ready for you to link your own 'On My Wishlist' post. If you want to know more click here.

I haven't been active with the wishlist meme the past two weeks 'cause I've been busy with things and I really didn't came up with books that I really wanted. But now I'm back again! And here's my list.


The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

(Goodreads)

 The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.

Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart

Random Thoughts

I've read many reviews of it, only good ones and they are just saying positive things about it and the concept seems interesting enough for me!

Random Thoughts 

Norwegian book about Norwegian black metal. I don't know if you already know but I love, love Black Metal and my fave band is Dimmu Borgir. (Don't know if you've heard about them? They are real good). But I love all sorts of metal. Power Metal, Symphonic Metal, Heavy Metal etc. I'm not a chick with only black clothes, who's wearing heavy black metal  but I just love that type of music. Norwegian Black Metal isn't very big in Norway but in foreign countries and I would like to read something about this phenomenon. Why is Norwegian metal so big in other countries than in the homecountry itself and I would like to know more about the genre itself. I think this book would be superinteresting to read!


 Not many books on my list this time but enough to call it a list, right?
