What books are on my wishlist?

Even though I have a number of emails in my inbox requesting me to review, that doesn't always mean I get requested to review every book I am interested in. I also try to be careful not to accept more books than I can read. When I notice my review pile filling up it means I need to add some fantastic books onto my ever growing wishlist. I love sharing about books I'm reading, but I also want to let people know what books I would love to read and just haven't had the chance to. I mean just because my review pile is sky high doesn't mean some of my followers might enjoy hearing about other great books.

The first book up is The Magician's Lie by Greer Macallister. The novel isn't out until January, but this book has my attention!

The Magician's Lie by Greer Macallister 

Water for Elephants meets The Night Circus in The Magician’s Lie, a debut novel in which the country’s most notorious female illusionist stands accused of her husband's murder --and she has only one night to convince a small-town policeman of her innocence.

The Amazing Arden is the most famous female illusionist of her day, renowned for her notorious trick of sawing a man in half on stage. One night in Waterloo, Iowa, with young policeman Virgil Holt watching from the audience, she swaps her trademark saw for a fire ax. Is it a new version of the illusion, or an all-too-real murder? When Arden’s husband is found lifeless beneath the stage later that night, the answer seems clear.

But when Virgil happens upon the fleeing magician and takes her into custody, she has a very different story to tell. Even handcuffed and alone, Arden is far from powerless—and what she reveals is as unbelievable as it is spellbinding. Over the course of one eerie night, Virgil must decide whether to turn Arden in or set her free… and it will take all he has to see through the smoke and mirrors.
