On My Wishlist – Week 62


On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It’s where I list all the books I desperately want but haven’t actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. If you want to know more click here.

Week 62: Desperately looking for the following ARCs:    “The Debutante”, “Venom”, “Black City”, “The Lost Prince”, “Mystic City”, “Etiquette and Espionage”  “Throne of Glass”, and more! Let me know if you’re willing to send me a copy!

Here’s what’s on my wishlist this week:

“Jormungand: Volume 8” by Takahashi Keitarou

Summary: While doing business in Southeast Asia, Koko Hekmatyar’s brother, Kasper, runs into some interference from the Japanese SR counterintelligence unit. Koko and her team head to Japan to sort things out, but taking on the rogue Japanese unit on their home turf is just asking for trouble. However, Koko’s man Tojo knows the ground and the opposition— he once served in the SR unit under its leader, Yosuke Hinoki, Japan’s “ One and Only Spymaster.” When Koko goes into action, she looks for every advantage she can find, but in this deadly game, is she the one getting played?

Why?: I’ve totally fallen ass over tits in love with this series. I’d skimmed the first volume of the manga years back, but then I started watching the anime that’s been airing this season and I just kind of fell hard for Koko and her crazy team. There’s something so endearing about her and yet so frightening that I eagerly await each volume whenever it comes out. Takahashi is wonderfully unafraid to go to some of the darkest places of the human soul, and for that, he has my respect. “Jormungand” will be featured on the Manga Monday segment soon (either this week or next, I’m not sure), so stay tuned for that!
