Be careful what you wish for (or not)…


Every Tuesday over at the  The Broke and Bookish we all get to look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  The topic this week is a freebie so I’ve chosen:

10 books that are on my wishlist

`I think a good few of these are on my wishlist through previous Top Ten Tuesday recommendations (links to descriptions on Goodreads):

  1. The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry
  2. Den of Wolves by Juliet Marilier
  3. The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Perry
  4. The Fairest of them All by Carolyn Turgeon
  5. Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
  6. A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson
  7. At the Edge of the Orchard by Tracy Chevalier
  8. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
  9. Birdy by Jess Valance
  10. Your Brother’s Blood by David Towsey

    Great list, the only one that I have read is the fairest of them all, it’s pretty good, different from what I was expecting.

      Perhaps I picked that book up from your blog? Unfortunately these books went on my wishlist but I didn’t keep the names of the bloggers that recommended them!

        Possibly, it was at least a year if not that I read it. I do that too, really should write it down but never do. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

      • @lynnsbooks

        I hope so too. 😀

    Den of Wolves! Yes, that one’s pretty dang high on my wishlist as well…*swoons*

    Walk on Earth a Stranger was so good, but I will warn you that there’s very little going on in the way of fantastical elements. You should definitely pick it up when you’re in the mood for a historical! 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I don’t mind lack of fantasy in some of my books tbh. I prefer fantasy as my first choice but I do read a good few books each year that are either historical or crime/thriller. I like the look of Walk on Earth a Stranger so will definitely pick it up eventually.

    Dying to start Kate Atkinson’s series! Walk on Earth a Stranger was awesome:-)

    Awesome covers they all have; looking forward to your reviews.

    The Essex Serpent looks gorgeous. I’d buy that book just because of that haha. Happy reading!

    Tuck Everlasting is one of my long-time faves! My TTT

  7. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    A very interesting and eclectic collection of books on here! And I’m beyond excited to see Your Brother’s Blood on your list, it doesn’t get talked about enough!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’ve had it on my wishlist for a while – possibly I could have picked this up from you (or Fantasy Review Barn maybe?) – it was about the time we were all taking part in Tough Travelling – which I miss 😦

    I have heard the Blackthorn & Grim series is very good, and have heard of Walk on Earth a Stanger… but those are the only book’s I’m familiar with.

    • @lynnsbooks

      The Marilier books – well, in fairness, I’ve only read one – but it was so good that I think I’m going to love everything she writes!

    Tuck Everlasting! I adored the movie adaptation, but have never read the book. I’ll add it to my TBR 😅

  10. jessicabookworm

    Looks like a great mixture of books on your wish list – I hope you are able to get your hands on some of them soon 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      The Serpent of Essex has been receiving really good reviews and I think probably both of us would enjoy that read by the sounds of the synopsis.
      Lynn 😀
