My Payday Wishlist!

Hello my pretty little bookworms!! 
I thought I'd do a post of the books that are top of my wishlist as soon as payday rolls around (doesn't it always feel like forever between paydays, especially at the start of the month?).
Of course I will probably buy more than I list here, I'm the queen of the impulse purchases! 

Synopsis - Celebs, sunshine and beautiful boys…enough to lead a girl astray?
Angela Clark can’t believe her luck… she’s an English girl living in New York with a dream job at hip magazine The Look and a sexy boyfriend.
Her latest assignment takes her to Hollywood to interview hot actor and fellow Brit James Jacobs.Thrown in at the deep end she heads west with best friend Jenny dreaming of Rodeo Drive and Malibu beach.
Soon Angela discovers that celebrity life in Hollywood is not all glamour, gloss and sunshine. Despite his lady-killer reputation, the only person who seems genuine is James.
Then a paparazzi snaps them in an uncompromising position and suddenly Angela is thrust into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons…
Can she convince all those close to her – especially her boss and her boyfriend – not to believe everything they read? And will Hollywood ever win Angela’s heart?
I read I Heart New York last month and loved it so much, I even gave it 5 stars on GoodReads! 
It was a quick read at only around 200 pages and I really connected with the main character because she was called Angela (like me) and was a Libra (like me!) and she had quite a similar character and love of expensive handbags haha.
I'm super excited to read the sequel and find out what happens to Angela next! 

Synopsis - Angela is in the city of love – but romance is taking a nose-dive…
When Angela Clark’s boyfriend Alex suggests a trip to Paris at the same time as hip fashion mag Belle asks her to write a piece, she jumps at the chance.
But even as she’s falling for the joie de vivre of Paris, someone’s conspiring to sabotage her big break. And when she spots Alex having a tête-à-tête with his ex in a local bar, Angela’s dreams of Parisian passion all start crashing down around her.
With London and her old life only a train journey away, Angela can’t decide if should stay and face the music or run away home…
I'm also going to buy the third book, as these aren't lengthy reads I think I can definitely get through them both before the next payday when I'll buy the rest of the books!
This book being set in Paris reminds me of Sex And The City which makes me very excited!

Synopsis - When journalist Ellie looks through her newspaper's archives for a story, she doesn't think she'll find anything of interest. Instead she discovers a letter from 1960, written by a man asking his lover to leave her husband - and Ellie is caught up in the intrigue of a past love affair. Despite, or perhaps because of her own romantic entanglements with a married man.
In 1960, Jennifer wakes up in hospital after a car accident. She can't remember anything - her husband, her friends, who she used to be. And then, when she returns home, she uncovers a hidden letter, and begins to remember the lover she was willing to risk everything for.
Ellie and Jennifer's stories of passion, adultery and loss are wound together in this richly emotive novel - interspersed with real 'last letters'.
I adore Jojo Moyes' book, and this sounds similar to The Girl You Left Behind, which is also written from a double perspective.
It sounds really intriguing and I just love Jojo Moyes' writing, I'm on a mission to collect all of her books!

Synopsis - When the doors of the lift crank open, the only thing Thomas remembers is his first name. But he's not alone. He's surrounded by boys who welcome him to the Glade - a walled encampment at the centre of a bizarre and terrible stone maze. Like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they came to be there - or what's happened to the world outside. All they know is that every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything - even the Grievers, half-machine, half-animal horror that patrol its corridors, to try and find out.
I've recently read the first Maze Runner book and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I really like dystopian novels so this was right up my street and I can't wait to read the rest in the series.
It makes more financial sense to buy this box set as it also has the prequel The Kill Order in it as well, and to buy them all separately would be much more expensive!

Synopsis - Eleanor is the new girl in town, and she's never felt more alone. All mismatched clothes, mad red hair and chaotic home life, she couldn't stick out more if she tried.
Then she takes the seat on the bus next to Park. Quiet, careful and - in Eleanor's eyes - impossibly cool, Park's worked out that flying under the radar is the best way to get by.
Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall in love. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you're 16, and you have nothing and everything to lose.
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, Eleanor & Park is funny, sad, shocking and true - an exquisite nostalgia trip for anyone who has never forgotten their first love.
I've heard so so much about this book on Megan Olivier's Youtube channel, she really raves about it! 
I haven't read any Rainbow Rowell books before, but I have Fangirl to read also so hopefully I'll enjoy her writing style.

Synopsis - She is pretty and talented - sweet sixteen and never been kissed.
He is seventeen; gorgeous and on the brink of a bright future.
And now they have fallen in love.
But . . .
They are brother and sister.
This is a pretty controversial subject to write a book on, but I've heard it's beautifully written and heart-wrenching, I know that this will probably be a depressing read as it's a doomed romance right from the start, but I'm still excited to read it!

And there we go!! I really don't need to be buying more books but hey-ho!! I have a book blog to justify all of my literary purchases now ;) 
Toodles! x
