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 (to access the linky go to Book Chick City's site here)
I have 3 books this week that I think look fabulous, two of them have been reviewed on Luxury Reading and the other has been reviewed on Dizzy C's Little Book Blog. As always I'll provide the links to the reviews along with the description.
Turn of Mind by Alice LaPlante
Is the perfect murder the one you can't forget or the one you can't remember?
Dr. Jennifer White, a brilliant former surgeon in the early grips of Alzheimer's, is suspected of murdering her best friend, Amanda. Amanda's body was found brutally disfigured — with four of her fingers cut off in a precise, surgical manner. As the police pursue their investigation and Jennifer searches her own mind for fractured clues to Amanda's death, a portrait emerges of a complex relationship between two uncompromising, unsentimental women, lifelong friends who were at times each other's most formidable adversaries.
