Every reader has a wish list. Most of us keep them stocked up on Book Outlet or Amazon, and i am no different. I have a lot of books on my wish list that are waiting for me to buy them. Recently i’ve started to only buy books that have been added to my wish list, in order to keep my TBR pile down (ha) and make sure i’m only buying the books that i really do intend on reading. Here’s a little look at my wish list currently!
Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome
This novel has recently been made in to a movie, and a pretty great looking one at that. The more and more hype being built around the movie, the more i’ve heard people talking about this wonderful children’s novel. It was never something i picked up as a child, it wasn’t even on my radar, so i would love to read it now i’m older.
P.S I Like You by Kasie West
I’ve heard non-stop great things about P.S I Like You in the last few weeks. The novel is a sweet as sugar contemporary that sounds perfect for a cosy read, i really want to know what all the fuss is about and get my teeth in to it.
The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch and Jeffery Zaslow
The Last Lecture is a non fiction book about Randy’s last lecture at university. When he retired and was asked to give a ‘last lecture’, it turned out to be his very last lecture as he had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. I’ve heard incredible things about this book being very inspiring.
Edit: I just found a good price and bought it.
A World Without You by Beth Revis
This is another YA novel that i’ve heard countless good things about. There seems to be a trend amongst YA novels recently that they all have some kind of mental illness incorporated. This is the story of a young boy who has a stay in a mental hospital which leads to him coming to terms with one of his friends deaths.
Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour
I was lucky enough to meet Nina at YALC earlier this year, and she was one of the loveliest women i’ve ever gotten the chance to talk to. I have so far only read her collaboration with David Levithan, and want to read more of her own work. That’s why Everything Leads to You is on the list.
I hope you enjoyed this little look in to my wish list and it gave you some inspiration on what to add to your own! Also let me know if the books that are on here are worth buying!
