On My Wishlist (9)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday.
It's a place where you can list all the books you desperately want but haven't actually bought yet.
They can be old, new or forthcoming.
Read more about it HERE.

My wishlist:  
 
Outlander
Diana Gabaldon
(Outlander #1)
Published July 26th 2005
 
I have heard much about this series and want to try it out.
 
 
 
The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon--when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach--an "outlander"--in a Scotland torn by war and raiding Highland clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into intrigues and dangers that may threaten her life...and shatter her heart. For here she meets James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, and becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
 
Linger 
Maggie Stiefvater
(The Wolves of Mercy Falls #2)
Published July 13th 2010
 
I have wanted to continue this series for awhile.
 
 
 
 
In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other.  Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past . . . and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack.  And Isabelle, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.
