Book Wishlist

I’ve done my Book Gift Guide. But I realized I didn’t include some of the books that are on my personal wish-list for this holiday season. So here are some books & bookish items I’m hoping to receive (or buy myself) this month.

The Basic Eight by Daniel Handler

Described as The Secret History meets Heathers. What better way to sell it to me!? I love stories about close knit groups of friends. It seems like a page turning, quick read. Plus the main character’s name is Flannery.

Rabbit Back Literature Society by Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen

Well that’s one of those author names you have to copy, paste, & google how to pronounce… I believe it’s about a secret society in a small town & there’s a book virus of some sort. I don’t know why I get Hot Fuzz vibes from this description, but I think it’s not as comical as that. I still want to read it.

Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff

That cover! How it kind of cuts off the title & name like that! The blue! This cover is immaculate. I’ve heard that the characters are awful people. I love reading about awful people. I also like alternating points of view when it’s done right.

The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen

I read Freedom & this is up next before I can get to Purity. I specifically like this cover. I need me some Franzen family fiction.

White Noise by Don Delillo

I’ve had multiple opportunities to pick up White Noise, but I want this one. Picador is pretty great at creating more modern covers. The author who influenced pretty much all of my other favorite authors.

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

Did I not say Picador covers were beautiful? This is a part of their modern classics collection for this season & I’ve always expressed interest in them in some of my recent posts. This is the one I’m hoping to get as a stocking stuffer or something.

A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin

I’m the worst ASOIAF fan ever. Please don’t slay me. I swear I’ve read the other four. I even mistakingly watched this past season & spoiled the book for myself. All I can say is WHERE ARE YOUR BOUNDARIES GEORGE?! WHERE DO YOU DRAW THE LINE!? If you haven’t read A Game of Thrones, go do it now.
