Friday Finds: My Wishlist Just Increased

Friday Finds is a meme hosted by MizB at Should be Reading, featuring books we've discovered in the past week. Ever since I joined the wonderful world of book blogging, my wishlist and TBR pile have both grown exponentially, so I thought this meme would be a great way to keep track of any further additions. Here are the books I'm currently eager to get my hands on:

After reading Audrey's review of Split by Swati Avasthi over at Holes in my Brain, I'm super interested in checking it out for myself. If a book can make you stay up to 3.30am because you can't put it down, it's gotta be good.

I saw Austenland by Shannon Hale reviewed by Melina at Reading Vacation and immediately added it to my wishlist. It's right up my alley, following the story of a Darcy-obsessed protagonist who goes on a holiday to Austenland, a Regency-style resort that sounds like my kind of place. If only it really existed.

I know you're not supposed to judge books by their covers, but let's face it, who doesn't?! I know I totally do. Take this one, for instance. Without even knowing what it's about I want to read it, because I freaking love the cover. Turns out it's about zombies, which is not something I usually gravitate towards - but I have been thinking it's about time I looked into it, anyway. Thanks to Sarah at Storybound Girl for featuring this in her Waiting on Wednesday post this week.

Nic at Irresistible Reads posted a wonderful review of Saving June by Hannah Harrington. It sounds like an awesome, character-driven tale and I can't wait to read it. Plus it has a super pretty cover. There I go, judging again.
