On My Wishlist is a weekly meme brought to you by Book Chick City
, its a chance for you to drool over all those books from the past, present or future which you cant wait to get your hands on!
This weeks Wishlist are all recently added books to my wishlist. The first book this week is the sequel to a book I read towards the beggining of the year (or possibly the end of last!) The previous book was called How I Paid for College
April 2008 (Boradway Books) [US]
In this hilarious sequel Attack of the Theater People, Edward Zanni and his merry crew of high school musical-comedy miscreants move to the magical wonderland that is Manhattan.
It is 1986, and aspiring actor Edward Zanni has been kicked out of drama school for being “too jazz hands for Juilliard.” Mortified, Edward heads out into the urban jungle of eighties New York City and finally lands a job as a “party motivator” who gets thirteen-year-olds to dance at bar mitzvahs and charms businesspeople as a “stealth guest” at corporate events. When he accidentally gets caught up in insider trading with a handsome stockbroker named Chad, only the help of his crew from How I Paid for College can rescue him from a stretch in Club Fed.
Laced with the inspired zaniness of classic American musical comedy,Attack of the Theater People matches the big hair of the eighties with an even bigger heart.
This next one is another that I only added recently. Despite the fact Ive been seeing it everywhere I kinda disregarded it as it looks like chick-lit adult stuff from the cover (sorry but it does) its not until I actually read the summary and a review that I realised it sounds really good! I have to say I much prefer the US cover though!

Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan’s life. She’s stuck at JFK, late to her father’s second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon to be step-mother that Hadley’s never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport’s cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he’s British, and he’s in seat 18B. Hadley’s in 18A. Twists of fate and quirks of timing play out in this thoughtful novel about family connections, second chances and first loves. Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver’s story will make you believe that true love finds you when you’re least expecting it
And finalley, one Ive been seeing around a lot, as well as seeing a lot by the author in general!
