I always like to look at other people's WL's...it gives me new books to check out, and it's fun to compare tastes. Most people's WL's are pretty long though, so I want to know: what are the 3 books that you are most anxious to get and why? I'll kick it off:
1) Chasing Demons by Christy Tillery French: When browsing the Amazon guides, this book consistently came up as a really good one, but I can never find it in bookstores and it's about $14 on Amazon...it hasn't been posted to PBS since 2008 but I'm #6 so my fingers are crossed. :)
2) The Mammoth Book of Irish Romance: This is coming out in January, I think, and I don't know the authors who contribute but ever since reading Nora Robert's Irish trilogy (with the Gallaghers) I've been in love with Ireland and hope this is just as good.
3) Midnight Man by Lisa Marie Rice: I picked this title at random; really, anything LMR I'm looking forward to getting because I have yet to read anything of hers, and she is highly recommended around here. I looked at her website and found a quote of hers saying she doesn't write about the alpha, kick ass heroine, nor does she have moments where the hero hates the heroine, and I thought, "Finally"!!
Well, don't look at mine:P It has ten tons of craft books on it right now and the romance books are almost nil. That's mostly because I have either nearly collected everything I wanted to collect or changed my mind about wanting to collect it, and of new releases, not that many are books I want to read. I'm a historical gal, so that narrows the field a lot, and then it gets pruned even more when the majority of the new historical releases are by authors I wouldn't read on a dare:P Things I've already ordered or am really looking forward to:
Beauty and the Duke by Melody Thomas. Content to wait for the WL offer on that one. I think Thomas shows humungous potential, I am just not convinced that she has yet figured out that she isn't living up to it:P
The Care and Taming of a Rogue by Suzanne Enoch. A will buy new. because whether she's brilliant or not, she's generally worth the money I spend. Will probably order it from The Book Depository.
Highland Rebel: A Tale of a Rebellious Lady and a Traitorous Lord by Judith James. Already ordered it new and it's on the way.
Never Love A Lawman by Jo Goodman - ordered new/on the way.
Scoundrel's Kiss by Carrie Lofty. Will probably reserve & pick up at Borders.
Surrender of a Siren: A Novel by Tessa Dare. WL is moving & I'm not too far down, so unless I run low on TBR, I'll probably wait for it.
Tempt Me at Twilight by Lisa Kleypas. Another one I'll reserve & pick up at Borders.
To Desire a Devil (The Legend of the Four Soldiers) by Elizabeth Hoyt - ditto (will get at Borders).
Wicked Becomes You by Meredith Duran - will get at Borders.
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larrson-3rd and final Millenium book. I'm sure there would have been more be he died right after submitting the 3 Millenium books to his publisher.
Tasting Fear by Shannon McKenna. I don't really even know what this is about but she's one of my favorites. I'll probably buy it before it comes up on my WL. It's more there to me as a reminder.
Betrayal of the Blood Lily by Lauren Willig-love this series. This is another one that I'll probably end up buying before it comes up on my WL.
Elizabeth's Wolf by Lora Leigh
Jacob's Faith by Lora Leigh
Aiden's Charity by Lora Leigh
I have all the other early Breeds titles and these 3 rarely posted are at the top of my WL. Thank goodness we can buy creds. I'd go nuts if I were offered one and had no way to accept the offer! LOL
Street Game - Christine Feehan (Now that the Drake sisters series is finished I have to dive back into the Ghostwalkers!)
Tempt me at Twilight - Lisa Kleypas (Normally I pre-order Kleypas books since she's an auto-buy for me, but I'm #4 on this WL so maybe I can hold out...LOL)
A Deep Kiss of Winter - Kresley Cole & Gena Showalter (Cole is one of my favorite new (to me) authors)
I have 3 I'm looking forward to:
Guilty Pleasure by Lora Leigh
Zeke by Beth Williamson
Pursuit of Honor by Vince Flynn
I won't wait for them to come up by wish list though. These 3 I'll purchase outright. I'm guilty of the "I want it right now" syndrome. I have very little patience to wait for wish list books that I really, really, really want. (I like this thread. I've already added a book Sherry mentioned to my wish list.)

Michelle, I don't know about you, but I wasn't ready for the Drake series to be over. I hope that she does a followup book just so we can check in on the sister's now and again to see how many rug rats Ella is up to. Looking forward to the next Ghostwalker series, although I hope it is stronger than the last few have been.
Keri: yes I read The Girl with The Dragon Tatoo. I would read them in order. It was very good. There's a pretty graphic rape scene. It's not a cozy by any means. Some of the corporate accounting stuff gets a little boring unless you are a math corporate intrigue person. But it' smostly a murder mystery.
I'm on Chapter 8 of the 2nd book The Girl Who Played With Fire. Very good so far. I just started it this morning. I haven't gotten much done today.
Where do I begin!!! I couldn't narrow it done to just 3 but I was finally able to get it down to these books:
Tempt Me at Twilight :: As far as I am concerned you can't go wrong with this author. This is also a fav series. Mine Till Midnight is in the top 10 of my favorite books.
To Desire a Devil (The Legend of the Four Soldiers) :: The first book of this series was the first time that I read any of her books and fell in love with the characters and her style of writing.
Broken Wing :: Slowly but surely getting to the #1 spot on my WL. I heard so much about this book here that I simply had to read it!
Anything of Lora Leigh's that is on my WL
The #1 book I can't wait for doesn't come out till the end of next month:
CL Wilson's Queen of Song and Souls (Tairen Soul, Bk 4)
There are a few others I'll probably enjoy, but that's the one that's the one I want the most :)
These are three I'm really looking forward to:
I love love love this series and I'm very excited about this last book that will tie everything together. The only question is...will I wait or will I buy? I have the feeling I'll be buying this one.
New author for me (and new world), and since I have this thing for m/m romance...well....fun, fun, fun.
I will never pay $90 for a used book (at least not this one) so I live in hope that someday this will make it into this system.
Anything Carla Kelly writes is something I want to read also.
I am # 384 of 871 Cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse is no typical southern belle. She can read minds. And she’s got a thing for vampires. Which, in a town like Bon Temps, Louisiana, means she’ll have to watch her back -- and neck...
I am #33 out of 396 and # 31 out of 375 Jamie Fraser, erstwhile Jacobite and reluctant rebel, knows three things about the American rebellion: the Americans will win, unlikely as that seems in 1778; being on the winning side is no guarantee of survival; and he'd rather die than face his illegitimate son -- a young lieutenant in the British Army -- across the barrel of a gun. Fraser's time-travelling wife, Claire, also knows a couple of things: that the Americans will win, but that the ultimate price of victory is a mystery. What she does believe is that the price won't include Jamie's life or happiness -- not if she has anything to say. Claire's grown daughter Brianna, and her husband, Roger, watch the unfolding of Brianna's parents' history -- a past that may be sneaking up behind their own family.
I am #1 or 3. This book was written by PBS member Herbert.
I am #52 of 75 This is the first new novel by Dara Joy in over two years. Meet new Familiars and their adventures as they travel to new worlds in Familiars Touch. In the second story Kirkpatrick's Woods watch as two people from very differnt walks of life have a sexual challenge that leads to much more. If you have been starved for more of Dara's work you need to rad this book. Which also includes fan letters and extras from the author herself.
To add another, I can't wait for Stephanie Meyer to finish the twilight book told by Edward.

Like Kim, if you look at my WL you'ed think I seldom read romance. Truth is, between Borders coupons, Amazon, and booksfree.com I rarely WL upcoming MMP. I use my WL mainly for non-fiction and for really hard to find/expensive OOP books, sort of a "here's hoping" list. (I very recently discovered AbeBooks and was able to order a bunch of books I've been looking for for years at prices I was willing to pay. Now I'm hovering around my mailbox everyday waiting for my "preciouses" to arrive LOL.)
the Guinevere Jones series by Jayne Castle
Heart to Heart, Joy Forever, and Taming Nick all early books by Elizabeth Jennings (AKA Lisa Marie Rice)
a children's/YA book called The Tattooed Potato and Other Clues by Ellen Raskin, in hardcover to replace my very worn copy
I know it would be way to complicated but I wish there was a way to indicate if one would accept a non-postable copy of a WL book. I know the book bazaar has threads for this but most of them are for new(er) releases.
