27 books on my wishlist

27 books on my wishlist
It’s my birthday today! Birthdays makes me think of books1 which makes me think of my meticulously kept wishlist. Any time I spot a book I think I might be interested in reading, I write down the title and then add it to my list.

According to Goodreads, my wishlist currently has 417 books. Here’s 27 of them, sorted from added earliest (2012) to added latest (2015). I’m gonna make it a goal to read at least ten of these books before my next birthday— I don’t have to buy them, but I do at least want to try them out.

This is kind of a companion post to this one about my TBR pile. These are books I don’t own, but I still want to read them.

  1. practically everything makes me think of books, tbh
  2. I actually have another ED anthology on my TBR shelf somewhere, only it’s a horror one.
  3. I tried to read this before, from the library, but I’d gotten the hardcover and it has TEENY TINY print. When I get this for myself I’m going for the ebook so I can adjust the font settings. Sheesh.
  4. right around here in 2013 is when I started becoming more interested in scifi, specially scifi as written by women. I think it happened right after I started on Lois McMaster Bujold’s Vorkosigan saga.
  5. the ebook is on sale for $2.99! I bought it. Yay!
  6. the cover for this is so similar to Grimspace that I tend to get them mixed up. They’re pubbed by the same company, too.
  7. ooo, this one’s on sale for about $3, too!
  8. pirates and chefs and high seas adventures!
  9. just fyi, but I am definitely one of those people who think too much about what I’d do in the event of a zombie apocalypse or if I were stranded near a black hole or something.
  10. the Kindle edition is $46. THE KINDLE EDITION IS $46.
  11. as you may have guessed from the title, this is m/m. I can’t remember how I found this book–it was definitely in a recommendation post somewhere, though. Most of the related titles on Amazon are things like The Magpie Lord, btw, which seems like a good sign.
  12. you had me at “magic school.”
