Book Wishlist #3

Hey guys! Here are some more books I really am interested in buying and reading. Let me know what you guys are dying to read! Enjoy 🙂


yes no maybe so by becky albertalli & aisha saeed

43615530

I’ve really enjoyed three Becky Albertalli books, but I’ve never read either of her collaboration novels. This one sounds really interesting because it surrounds two teenagers working on opposite political campaigns, which is a YA story that hasn’t really been done before. With YA having expanded so much in the past few years, it is hard to find entirely original content, but this seems to be as close as it could get.


regretting you // colleen hoover

I don’t read New Adult, but I did read Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover and LOVE it. This one is a recent novel by her, and it involves a mother-daughter relationship from the mother’s POV. I haven’t read that type of relationship before, so in addition to it being a Colleen Hoover, this is something I think I’d enjoy.


dividing eden by joelle charbonneau

Joelle Charbonneau has a large catalog of books that I’m interested in reading, including The Testing and Time Bomb. However, this fantasy series sounds really good. YA definitely has a lack of male main characters, and these books feature two brothers recovering from the death of their older brother who was heir to the throne. It sounds like a really political fantasy, which is something I’ve loved a lot lately.


aurora rising // amie kaufman & jay kristoff

Unlike everyone else, I never read Illuminae. I did give it a half-ass attempt but never followed through in finishing it. Either way, Aurora Rising sounds soooo entertaining. Honestly, what interests me the most is the sarcasm and wit that this novel has. Very rarely does humor in books really work for me, so I’m thinking this could be a great exception.


the whisper man // alex north

I’ve been more and more interested in adult thrillers, and this is one of the more popular ones lately. I am intrigued by the mystery connecting present day to the past; it seems like a really sinister, gripping thriller that I’d be hooked to.


runebinder // alex r. kahler

32766049

This is a YA fantasy series I’ve wanted to read for a long time. It seems like a more traditional fantasy (i.e. Lord of the Rings, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe), and just seems pretty epic.


the guest list // lucy foley

51933429

This book sounds like something I’d eat up. It reminds me a lot of And Then There Were None, which is probably my favorite mystery novel of all time. It does sound distinct enough to the point that I don’t think it will pale in comparison to ATTWN, so I’m just super interested in getting to it. Sounds very suspenseful.


assassin’s heart // sarah ahiers

21421609

Two of my favorite things to read is fantasy novels with court politics as well as murder mystery novels. This book is both of these things, and sounds really intense and interesting. Although it is inspired by Romeo and Juliet, a story I despise, the atmosphere and family drama of that book had potential that I think this novel could tap into.


little cruelties // liz nugent

50892432

This book follows three brothers, where ultimately one kills another. Judging by the synopsis, it seems like it is a mystery which brother is dead and which killed him, which is the perfect type of suspenseful mystery I love. The focus on brothers is different from what I’ve usually read, so I’m interested in reading it for sure. It’s also got decent ratings.

  1. Such a great post! I love this idea and your choices. The Guest List really does sound a lot like Agatha Christie’s novel so I’m curious to see how that turns out. I actually got Aurora Burning just before the pandemic started, but I wanted to get to Illuminae first so that one is still on hold. It has such a pretty cover though ❤︎

  2. Great wishlist! I am really looking forward to reading Yes No Maybe So and The Whisper Man. I’ve been so on the fence about picking up my copy of Aurora Rising since I really didn’t like Illuminae and never continued with the series after not liking the first book much at all. Regretting You was pretty good. Hopefully you get a chance to get all of these books soon and read them. 🙂
