I’m really sick and out of it right now so sorry if this is really vague.
No top five Wednesday’s today, as I don’t read enough sci fi/Fantasy for the prompt. – So I’m posting my book Wishlist instead.
I want a lot of books, but here are 15 on my current Wishlist! They are in no particular order.
1. Wonderstruck by Brian Elznick
So I don’t know much about the plot of this one, but I know that it’s dual perspective – except that one of the perspectives is told only in pictures – which is so cool and I’d love to see how it would work!
2. The language of thorns by Leigh Bardugo
This is the only Grishaverse book that I don’t own so I have to get it soon. I love illustrations and I’m just pumped to get this.
It’s a collection of short stories set in the Grishaverse and it sounds so cool.
3. The ocean at the end of the lane by Neil Gaiman
Don’t know much about this one, but I know two things.
1. It’s by Neil Gaiman, an author I love
2. It’s supposed to be haunting/scary
So I’m sold.
4. Bear town by Fredrik Backman
This one is about a girl who is raped by a popular boy from the hockey team, and how her town deals with it.
I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, and Fredrik Backman in general, so I definitely want to give it a go.
5. And every morning the way home gets longer and longer by Fredrik Backman
Also by Fredrik Backman, because I really want to start reading his books – this is a really short but impactful novella that deals with Alzheimer’s and I really want to read it!
6. The seven husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
So I wasn’t interested in this one at first, but after hearing nothing but good things about it, I think I’ll give it a shot.
7. The Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson
I keep going back and forth on this because I’m not a huge fan of high fantasy but people rave about these books so I feel like I have to give them a shot.
8. The Giver quartet
9. The Illuminae files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I have been wanting to read this series for ages but always put it off because it seems like such a big commitment but I really need to get to it.
10. A list of cages by Robin Roe
I have a terrible memory – I’ve forgotten what the premise of this book is. I remember that it sounded interesting and that I really wanted to read it so –
11. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
I’ve realised a lot of these are just books I’ve heard a lot of good things about – nothing wrong with that though. This is definitely one of those. I wasn’t interested originally but it’s so popular that I want to give it a try.
12. Through the woods by Emily Carrol
I’ve heard nothing about this but I came across it and it seems so cool – a compilation of 5 short stories to do with the woods – that are supposed to be really scary/haunting. Which I love.
13. House of leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
This is another one that seems like a huge commitment because of the unique formatting, so I don’t know when I’ll get to it, and I don’t know much about it, but I’ve heard good things.
14. Bird box by Josh Malerman
I watched the movie and wasn’t a fan but the premise is really cool so I want to give the book a try and see how it is.
15. An Unkindness Of Magicians by Kat Howard
I honestly don’t remember anything about this I just know the cover is really pretty and I want it.
Thanks for reading! Let me know if you’ve read any of these and what you thought! (But no spoilers please!)
