Friday Frivolity: Book Wishlist

Friday Frivolity

This week we're talking about reading wishlists! Here are a few books I can't wait to read -

The Reporter Who Knew Too Much
The Reporter Who Knew Too Much - Mark Shaw.
I love true crime and mysteries, and this sounds exactly like my kind of read: "Was What’s My Line TV Star, media icon, and crack investigative reporter and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen murdered for writing a tell-all book about the JFK assassination? If so, is the main suspect in her death still at large?" It's due out on December 6th so it might make it into my December reading round-up.

A Very English Scandal
A Very English Scandal - John Preston

Jeremy Thorpe MP stood trial in 1979 accused of conspiracy and incitement to murder; he had allegedly attempted to silence Norman Scott, a former homosexual lover from the 1960s (i.e. before it was legalised), who wanted to damage his political career. Thorpe was leader of the Liberal Party until 1976 - a household name - and although he was found not guilty, the scandal shocked the nation. I'm really looking forward to this account which is due out next April.

The Apprentice of Split Crow Lane
The Apprentice of Split Crow Lane - Jane Housham

This actually came out at the beginning of November, but I haven't had chance to get to it yet. It's another true crime title - sensing a pattern? - this time looking at a 1866 child murder case, and what it tells us about the Victorian justice system. I really enjoyed Kate Summerscale's The Wicked Boy earlier this year, which also used a murder case as the basis for exploring the realities of the criminal lunatic asylums, so I'm particularly psyched to get started with this one.

What is on your reading wishlist?

Now on to the link-up! :D
