Bookish Wishes

I haven't done a Top Ten Tuesday post in a hot minute, but today's topic is to create a bookish wishlist. This is books you'd like to own. I think this is an excellent way to organize myself so the next time I am faced with a book buying opportunity, I know what to look for.

Legends & Lattes

Legends and Lattes by Travis Baldree - This was previously released in the U.K. and is set for release in paperback here in November. It's about an orc barbarian who retires from the mercenary life and opens a coffee shop.

Never Meeting

We Are Never Meeting In Real Life by Samantha Irby - I really thought I already had this book, but Goodreads says no. This is a collection of essays about her life that are apparently hilarious.

Rue Dumas

Murder In the Rue Dumas by M.L. Longworth - I really liked the first in the series and would like to read the next one.

Never Grow Up

Never Grow Up by Jackie Chan - I love Jackie Chan. That is all.

Nobody Told Me

Why Has Nobody Told Me This Before by Julie Smith - Smith is a therapist and this book contains practical ideas to maintain your mental health.

Thousand Mornings

A Thousand Mornings by Mary Oliver - I love Mary Oliver's poems. Also, the cover is fabulous.


Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times by Katherine May - I have wanted to read this book since in came out last year. I am all about rest. I still have trouble letting myself get enough of it, but I am learning.

Doggie Language

Doggie Language: A Dog Lover's Guide to Understanding Your Best Friend by Lili Chin - I frequently cannot tell if my dog is sad, or that's just his face. I hope this book can help.


Harrow the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir - I really enjoyed the first book in the series when I finally got around to reading it. I don't want to wait too long to read the second one. I'll forget what happened.

The Nineties

The Nineties by Chuck Klosterman - Klosterman is just 18 months older than me and I've heard this take on the 90s is fantastic. I got out of my teens in the early 90s, but I was still a staunch supporter of pop culture until I had kids. Weird how that happens.

So there we go. 10 books I'd like to own. Do you have a wishlist?
