On My Wishlist: July 09, 2011: 07/09/11

On My WishlistI'm in the middle of my second month of summer school. So far the reading for school hasn't gotten in the way of reading for fun, which is a pleasant surprise.

I am currently reading The Case of the Left-Handed Lady by Nancy Springer. I've finished Keeping You a Secret by Julie Anne Peters; it was quite a page turner! I also finished The Writing Circle by Corinne Demas. It was different from my usual sort of read but memorable.

I only have one new book to pick up from the library. I sort of got myself buried in wishlist books at home now. I need to read through what I have before I start requesting more. Plus I have some TBR books that are wooing me. I will probably read through what I have on hand before requesting new ones.

My total wishlist stands at 854 books, an increase of 13 books since last week.

Upcoming wishlist reads include (they are in my hands waiting to be read):

  • Diving into the Wreck by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
  • Turnabout by Margaret Peterson Haddix
  • The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer
  • Eye of the Crow by Shane Peacock
  • Rampant by Diana Peterfreund (recommended by Bookalicious Pam)
  • The Wide-awake Princess by E.D. Baker
  • Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
  • Tall Blondes: a Book About Giraffes by Lynn Sherr
  • Roller Skates by Ruth Sawyer
  • Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder
  • Amulet: The Cloud Searchers by Kazu Kibuishi

The Featured Wish for July 09, 2010:

cover artAfter the Party by Lisa Jewell (Recommended by GoodReads)

It's eleven years since Jem Catterick and Ralph McLeary first got together. They thought it would be for ever, that they'd found their happy ending. As everyone agreed, they were the perfect couple. Then two became four, a flat became a house. Romantic nights out became sleepless nights in. And they soon found that life wasn't quite so simple.

When I first joined BookCrossing, Lisa Jewell's books were some of the first books I read. They were sent to me from BookCrossers in Great Britain. They were books I could not put down and were pick me ups for a time when work was stressful and being a first time parent was leading to sleep deprevation. I haven't read one of her books in years.

I haven't read After the Party, yet. But I really like Lisa Jewell, have you read her latest one - The making of us, it was really great.

The last one I read was Ralph's Party. That'll give you an idea of how long it's been since I read one of her books.

Rampant was a fun book, but I still haven't read the sequel. I also really liked Snow Flower and the Secret Fan! I have her new book, but haven't got to it yet.

I am also curious about Inside Out, but I have another series on the go by Snyder that I really should finish before starting another one...

I can't keep up with all the sequels.

Hopefully that pans out with this book.

You have a lot of books on your wishlist. I have Snow Flower and the Secret Fan but I just haven't started reading it yet. I keep getting sucked into a different book.

Yes, I have a ton of books I'm wishing for. The ones on the bulleted list are ones I've managed to find at the library and will be reading soon.

Wow, thats one big list! Oddly enough I haven't read any of these! Which will you choose to read next then?

Sounds like a good book for teens wanting to play house as well. Good choice!

Do teens play house?
