On My Wishlist {23}

On My Wishlist is where I share a few books that have recently made it onto my wishlist. These are the books that have recently caught my eye:

Bitter Falls (Stillhouse Lake #4) by Rachel Caine
Expected publication: January 21st 2020 by Thomas & Mercer

She’s investigating a cold case no one else could—by going places no else would dare.

In spite of a harrowing past still haunting her, Gwen Proctor is trying to move forward. Until a new assignment gives her purpose: the cold-case disappearance of a young man in Tennessee. Three years missing, no clues. Just Ruth Landry, a tortured mother in limbo. Gwen understands what it’s like to worry about your children.

Gwen’s investigation unearths new suspects…and victims. As she follows each sinister lead, the implications of the mystery grow more disturbing. Because the closer Gwen gets, the closer she is to a threat that looms back home.

In a town that’s closed its ranks against Gwen; her partner, Sam; and her kids, there’s no bolder enemy than the Belldene family—paramilitary, criminal, powerful, and vengeful. As personal vendettas collide with Gwen’s investigation, she’s prepared to fight both battles. But is she prepared for the toll it could take on everyone she loves?

It's probably super obvious that I'm waiting for this one. I love this series, and I'm anxious to read the new one!!

The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel
Expected publication: March 24th 2020 by Knopf Publishing Group

From the award-winning author of Station Eleven, a captivating novel of money, beauty, white-collar crime, ghosts, and moral compromise in which a woman disappears from a container ship off the coast of Mauritania and a massive Ponzi scheme implodes in New York, dragging countless fortunes with it.

Vincent is a bartender at the Hotel Caiette, a five-star glass and cedar palace on an island in British Columbia. Jonathan Alkaitis works in finance and owns the hotel. When he passes Vincent his card with a tip, it's the beginning of their life together. That same day, Vincent's half-brother, Paul, scrawls a note on the windowed wall of the hotel: "Why don't you swallow broken glass." Leon Prevant, a shipping executive for a company called Neptune-Avramidis, sees the note from the hotel bar and is shaken to his core. Thirteen years later Vincent mysteriously disappears from the deck of a Neptune-Avramidis ship. Weaving together the lives of these characters, The Glass Hotel moves between the ship, the skyscrapers of Manhattan, and the wilderness of northern Vancouver Island, painting a breathtaking picture of greed and guilt, fantasy and delusion, art and the ghosts of our pasts.

I'm really curious about this one. I will probably wait to see how the reviews fall before taking the plunge.

Bent Heavens by Daniel Kraus
Expected publication: February 25th 2020 by Henry Holt and Co.

Liv Fleming's father went missing more than two years ago, not long after he claimed to have been abducted by aliens. Liv has long accepted that he's dead, though that doesn't mean she has given up their traditions. Every Sunday, she and her lifelong friend Doug Monk trudge through the woods to check the traps Lee left behind, traps he set to catch the aliens he so desperately believed were after him.

But Liv is done with childhood fantasies. Done pretending she believes her father's absurd theories. Done going through the motions for Doug's sake. However, on the very day she chooses to destroy the traps, she discovers in one of them a creature so inhuman it can only be one thing. In that moment, she's faced with a painful realization: her dad was telling the truth. And no one believed him.

Now, she and Doug have a choice to make. They can turn the alien over to the authorities...or they can take matters into their own hands.

This YA horror is also being billed as science fiction. Yeeesss! I need this in my life.

  1. I can't believe I'm going to be 4 behind on the Caine series. So many bloggers I love love it so I need to get started. The Glass Hotel is already on my wishlist but I've not seen Bent Heavens before. I've not always had the best luck with alien centered books but I must want to because I keep on trying. Thanks for sharing these - and making my book wishlist longer!

    1. The Caine books read so quickly! I need to get my hands on Bent Heavens.

  2. All three please!! I haven't actually started the Rachel Caine series, but everyone raves about it. And I'm super excited for The Glass Hotel, I plan on preordering it soon since I LOVED Station Eleven. And I have a copy of Bent Heavens, which sounds so good!

    1. I'm so curious about The Glass Hotel! Literary Fiction doesn't always work for me, but I loved her writing in Station Eleven.

  3. I never did read anything from Daniel Kraus but this one intrigues me A LOT. I only just recently read Station Eleven but I enjoyed her writing style so Glass Hotel is definitely on my tbr. :)

    1. I think the only Daniel Kraus I have read is Scowler. I'm intrigued, too!

  4. Oh huge yes to Bitter Falls! I was so happy when I found out there would be a fourth book, I had thought all along it would be a trilogy!
