Top Ten Tuesday: Reading Wishlist
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is a reading wishlist. This topic is about what you want to see more of in books. But my mind doesn’t work like that. So I selected ten books that aren’t in my currently reading piles but I’d like to get to them soon (optimistically, by the end of this month).
Exit West by Mohsin Hamid
A bunch of people have been talking about this one since it came out. From what I understand, it sounds like magical realism. There is a couple fleeing a war-torn country through magical doors. They have to face living in new countries and growing and changing as individuals. But does that mean they grow apart?
Marlena by Julie Buntin
This one has also been very talked of since it came out. But this one is about a toxic friendship and a murder mystery?
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
I wasn’t blown away by her Inheritance Trilogy but a bunch of people say that this one is amazing so I want to at least give it a try.
Delirium’s Mistress by Tanith Lee
I just finished Delusion’s Master so I’m excited to get into this one.
The Animators by Kayla Rae Whitaker
This one came out this year, I think. This one is about two friends who are animators and that sounds interesting to me.
The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich
I just got this in my May Book of the Month Box. I picked this one because the gal who picked it said so many glowing things about the love triangle trope being flipped on its head. I want to see what this writer chooses to do.
The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens and How Green Was My Valley by Richard Llewellyn
These are the classics I’d like to get to soon.
Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami
I’ve been more and more tempted to reread this because I’m not exactly sure how I feel about it.
Moshi Moshi by Banana Yoshimoto
I haven’t read this one by her yet. I’m curious to see if I’ll like it. She is most famous for Kitchen but I actually like NP more.
