Weekly Geeks: 2010-20 The Wishlist

Is your wishlist as big as your TBR pile? What books are topping your list? Are there any new releases that you are counting down the days for? Share a handful of titles and be sure to share why you want to get your hands on these books! And if another blogger is responsible for that book being on your wishlist, consider sharing a link to their review!

I have several wishlists all over the place and don’t keep track of them very well. I have several amazon wishlists sorted by topic, a wishlist on shelfari and a wishlist at the swap site I get a lot of books from. None of them is complete and I could do with consolidating and updating them.

Also my wishlist is not very long. I tend to buy books I want right away, and I don’t follow series to such an extent that I’m eagerly waiting for the next instalment. So, no books that are yet to be released are on my list.

Apart from some beading books and some that I put on in a half-hearted way, just in case I ever feel like continuing a series (for example “Atlantis Unleashed” by Alyssa Day, which I probably will never get). the following books are on my wishlist:

  • “Date me, baby, one more time” by Stephanie Rowe
    ”Must love dragons” by Stephanie Rowe
    The first two books in a series that sounds funny and somewhat different from other PNR.
  • Shadow Touch” by Marjorie M. Liu, the second book in the Dirk & Steele series
  • Heart of the dragon” by Gina Showalter, first book in the Atlantis series
  • From dead to worse”, Dead and gone” and “Dead in the family” by Charlaine Harris. I’m quite behind in the Sookie Stackhouse series.
  • “Call me by your name” by Andre Aciman
  • At swim, two boys” by Jamie O’Neill. Jane Seville recommends this on her website.
  • Boy meets boy” by David Levithan
  • The book thief” by Markus Zusak
  • By the lake” by John McGahern
  • The Gargoyle” by Andrew Davidson
  • Zwei Liebende” by Catherine Guillebaud. I think the original title is “Amants”, not sure whether there is an English translation available.
  • Tintenherz” by Cornelia Funke (translated title is “Inkheart”)

So, what is on your wish list? To see what other geeks have on theirs go here.

  1. I really hate these sort of topic – they only add more books to my already overstuffed list..

    You list looks like my book’s book shelf…

    I’ll give it a toss later in the week and see if he has anything that you have here…

    I’ll email you..

    Is Dragon Rider – apart of the Funke series, my kid is reading that at the moment…

  2. Oh, yes, that would be great. Maybe we can exchange some.

    Dragon Rider (Drachenreiter) seems to be a stand alone book as far as I can see. I’m not at all familiar with Funke’s books, but I’ve heard only good things about them. The sequels of Tintenherz are called “Tintenblut” and “Tintentod” (engl. they are Inkspell and Inkdeath).
    Got to go and have a look at your list now.


  3. ok, drop everything and read The Book Thief now! It is amazingly wonderfully good. It gave me that post-awesome book problem where for a bit nothing was any good afterwards.
