The Book Corner: A Wishlist

There’s nothing I like doing more than making a wishlist. Wishlists are fun. You can mentally shop for something without actually spending money. Then when you do have money you can look back at your wishlist to see what it is that you want to buy. See clever clever things indeed. Plus if anyone ever wants to buy you a present then they have your wishlist right there in front of them too.

Today I wanted to share a reading wishlist. It’s a combination of books in my To Be Read (TBR) pile and those on my ‘want to read but don’t own’ pile. In no particular order they are…

More Than This, Patrick Ness

The Miniaturist, Jessie Burton

Not My Father’s Son, Alan Cumming

The Luminaries, Eleanor Catton

Station Eleven, Emily St. John Mandel

Coraline, Neil Gaiman

Confessions: The Paris Mysteries, James Patterson

Hello from the Gillespies, Monica McInerney

Life After Life, Kate Atkinson

Half Wild, Sally Green

I’d absolutely love to read all of these this year. But in reality that’s probably unlikely. I doubt I’ll buy them all to start with and then it’s fitting them all in. Plus I need to be in the right mood to read certain books. I am pretty much always in the mood to read crime and YA, but anything else really depends.

Do you have a reading wishlist for the coming month or year? What’s on your TBR pile? Any thoughts on which of these beauties I should immerse myself in first?
