We all have book wish lists. (Right?! I'm sure I'm not alone in this.) Perhaps we call them TBR list and that's pretty much the same thing. I have a running wish list that has been created over a period of time, mostly because I have something called Google Reader. I follow several of you who can't stop recommending books that I should read. And so my Amazon wish list grows and grows. (Amazon is where I keep track of titles I'm interested in reading. Just because they are there doesn't mean I always wish to own them. I might be happy enough borrowing from the library. But there they are for convenience sake!)
What titles are currently on my wish list?
Wildflowers of Terezin makes the top of the list. It was recommended by Barbara and Annette (listed as a top fav in 2012). In fact, it's so high at the top of my wish list that I snatched it up at the library last week. I'm currently wrapping up another WWII piece of historical fiction and when I'm done with that one, I'm hoping I'll still be up for Wildflowers.
French Kids Eat Everything was recently mentioned by Stephanie at Simple Things and it sounds really interesting to me! (If you find you don't care for it in the end, be sure to tell me, Stephanie!) I don't have picky eaters and my children chow down on food. Still, they remain suspicious about anything new and I like the concept of this book as it includes traveling and adjusting to new cultures and ways of doing things.
An Economist Gets Lunch: New Rules for Everyday Foodies was recommended by Tim at Diary of an Autodidact and piqued my interest.
I already own a copy of 1984 but am growing increasingly determined to read it sooner, rather than later, because it's Heather's favorite book.
Lastly, The Black Cloister, by Melanie Dobson is and has been on my list ever since I read Refuge on Crescent Hill.
But right at the moment, I am reading 640 pages of Villa Triste and having a splendidly good time. I'm ever so hopeful that I shall like this one all the way to the bitter end, at which point I'll tell you all about it (and offer a giveaway as well)! This is a review copy that I am SO glad to have received. Reveling in it a bit at the present.
After then, it's back to Montgomery (with Wildflowers thrown in) to round off January.
Any book at the top of your wish list/TBR list that you just can't stop thinking about?!
