On My Wishlist {14}

On My Wishlist is where I share books that have recently made it on to my radar. These are the books I added to my wishlist in the past week:

The Siren and The Specter by Jonathan Janz


When David Caine, a celebrated skeptic of the supernatural, is invited by an old friend to spend a month in “the most haunted house in Virginia,” he believes the case will be like any other. But the Alexander House is different. Built by a 1700s land baron to contain the madness and depravity of his eldest son, the house is plagued by shadows of the past and the lingering taint of bloodshed. David is haunted, as well. For twenty-two years ago, he turned away the woman he loved, and she took her life in sorrow. And David suspects she’s followed him to the Alexander House.

I've read a few of Jonathan Janz's books (Children of the Dark, Wolf Land, and Witching Hour Theatre), and I enjoyed them all. I'm looking forward to reading more of his books including this new release set for September.



The Oracle Year by Charles Soule


Jane McKeene was born two days before the dead began to walk the battlefields of Gettysburg and Chancellorsville—derailing the War Between the States and changing America forever. In this new nation, safety for all depends on the work of a few, and laws like the Native and Negro Reeducation Act require certain children attend combat schools to learn to put down the dead. But there are also opportunities—and Jane is studying to become an Attendant, trained in both weaponry and etiquette to protect the well-to-do. It’s a chance for a better life for Negro girls like Jane. After all, not even being the daughter of a wealthy white Southern woman could save her from society’s expectations.

This book would not have caught my eye if it hadn't been for great reviews like the one Tammy posted over at Books, Bones, and Buffy.

  4. I'll throw in my support for The Oracale Year - it'll probably end up on my list of "Most Surprising Books of 2018". The premise was really quirky, the kind where you just have to go with the flow, but I had a lot of fun with it :)

  5. I seem to enjoy collecting the books more than reading them at the moment! It's depressing! Hope you will enjoy these picks when you read them.
