an unofficial wishlist - for now.

Thursday, June 16, 2011

To name every single book I plan to read and want to pick up would be impossible. There's way too many to name them all, but as of this week, I guess you could say that these are the books that I've been really wanting to read that I don't have copies of.
Of course, there are the books that I do own but want to read as well. That deserves a whole other post. For now, I guess you can call this, the 'unofficial book wish list as of June 16, 2011.'

Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares - I love the Sisterhood series, so I was so excited when I saw this one. I didn't even know the author was writing a new one!

The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman - Nice, simple cover and the plot synopsis sounds super interesting. I've also been hearing tons of good things about this.

Divergent by Veronica Roth - Been hearing about this day after day after day. I've read numerous reviews from trusted book bloggers, and so I can't wait to read this one for sure!

Deadline by Mira Grant - I really am very interested and curious to see where the author is going to take this story! It's got a fresh take on zombies and politics, and I am excited to see another narrator take the spotlight for this one too.

The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan - David Levithan is a fantastic writer, and the synopsis for this sounds so lovely.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs - Read the plot synopsis. Look at the cover. Tell me you're not intrigued!

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini - This one has gotten a lot of rave reviews in the past week or so, and so I really want to read this for myself to see what it really is all about.

Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck - Look at the cover. It's so hypnotic! I also love the idea of the story, love the setting, and tigers? I love tigers.

The Last Letter from your Lover by Jojo Moyes - This one's to be released July 2011 if I'm not mistaken. I am a sucker for romance in literary fiction novels, and this one sounds so genuinely lovely. I can't wait to read this!

Don't Stop Now by Julie Halpern - I love road trips, I love traveling. I wish I could do more of them, but while I can't, I'll just stick with reading about them. This sounds like the perfect summer read to me.

Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins - Enjoyed the first book in this series, and I think I might like this one too. It's about time I get my hands on it.

Ashes Ashes by Jo Treggiari - Love the dystopian sub-genre, and I've been hearing good things about the characters!

What are the books you are dying to read but unfortunately don't own? At least, not yet?


  1. Quite a few of these book are on my wish list, too. But they will have to wait a little longer:)

  2. Most of these are also on my wishlist! So many books, so little time...

  3. I have been dying to read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs - it seems so creepy! I love creepy novels :D

  4. This is a great list! I am currently reading Divergent. I want to read Tiger's Curse, partly because it is set in India and features an Indian guy as a main character but also because of a post I saw on Eating Y.A. Books where Jan said she pictured Ren looking like Bollywood film star Hrithik Roshan. :) Sadly my list included Sisterhood Everlasting until yesterday when the book was spoiled for me by none other than Publishers Weekly. It gives away a huge plot point so if you see their review, run in the other direction!

    I already read Demonglass (thought it was better than the first book) and Starcrossed (not going to get a rave review from me sadly). I have Don't Stop Now but haven't read it yet. My list of released books I wish I had includes Trial by Fire by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (just read Raised by Wolves a couple of months ago and thought it was fantastic), Jazz in Love by Neesha Meminger, and The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan. I am waiting to get The Throne of Fire from my library but I will probably end up having to buy Jazz in Love if I want to read it.

  5. LOVE the Last Letter cover! So romantic.

    I have been eyeing Imperfectionists for ever. I love that cover.

    AMEN on Sisterhood. It seems like the perfect summer read.

  6. I wish I read faster so I can have more books, lol

    Peculiar Children has always intrigued me too, great choice.

  7. glad to see you have the imperfectionists and the lover's dictionary on your list. both are so good!! i'll have to check out some of the other ones on your list, especially sisterhood everlasting, hehe :)

  8. I'm also excited about the last Brashares! The idea of meeting them again when they're older is just great.

  9. I'm so sad that my summervacation hasn't started yet. Why? I really want to buy a lot of books and I want to do that when the vacation starts. ;) I'm so looking forward to that first vacation day. ;) To list the books I want would be a very long list. So I'm just going to say that at least 80% of the books you listed I want too. ;)

  10. Don’t Stop Now has such a cool cover!

    I have most of these on my wish list too. Only one I’ve read is Divergent (LOVED it!). If I had a copy I’d send it your way, but unfortunately the copy I read was from an ARC tour.

    Is Deadline a sequel to Feed? I just downloaded that for my Kindle when it was $1.99 but haven’t read it yet. I wish I could sacrifice sleep so I could read more :)

    Hope you get some of your wish list books soon.

  11. Great, so I will just wait for your reviews before I invest more time and money, haha(except Imperfectionist which I like, and Lover's dictionary and Deadline which I promised I would read).

  12. Pepca - Haha I have to wait a while longer too!

    Belle - Yup. Couldn't agree more.

    Misha - Yes so do I!

    Christina T - Oh I am curious to know how you find Divergent! And I thought Throne of Fire was good.

    Juju - Love that cover as well. Looks so classic.

    Marce - It just sounds so mysterious to me! And yeah, I wish I could read faster.

    AteJustine - I need to read sisterhood SOON!! Hope it's good.

    Touloulou - I loved those books so much when I first read them!

    Nina - BOOK SHOPPING!! That would be an awesome prize for the end of the school year, wouldn't it?

    Christie - Yay. Glad you liked Divergent as well, and yes, Deadline is a sequel to Feed. I hope you like it.

    BookQuoter - I never buy anymore, unless it's less than $5! Haha.
