On My Wishlist: October 15, 2011: 10/14/11

On My WishlistI finished Say hello to Zorro! Carter Goodrich. I am close to finishing The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff but I made the mistake of recommending it to my husband on his day off. He promptly took the book and hasn't put it down since. He'll probably finish it tonight.

I'm still slowly working through The Mermaid's Mirror by L. K. Madigan, Pirate King by Laurie R. King and The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan. I got distracted from these by Dog Days: A Year in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile by Dave Ihlenfeld.

I plan to start Schenectady by Don Rittner and The Farming of Bones soon. I know... I said that last week too. One of these days.

My wishlist is at 955 books, up 8 books from last week.

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

  • Schenectady by Don Rittner
  • The Farming of Bones by Edwidge Danticat
  • Sarah Court by Craig Davidson
  • Flood and Fire by Emily Diamand
  • The Book of Tomorrow by Cecilia Ahern
  • Elsie's Bird by Jane Yolen
  • xxxHolic Volume 17 by CLAMP
  • Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer
  • Of all the stupid things by Alexandra Diaz
  • The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
  • How to Party with a Killer Vampire by Penny Warner
  • The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
  • The alchemyst by Michael Scott

The Featured Wish for October 15, 2010:

cover artThe House of Tomorrow by Peter Bognanni

"Sebastian Prendergast lives in a geodesic dome with his eccentric grandmother, who homeschooled him in the teachings of futurist philosopher R. Buckminster Fuller. But when his grandmother has a stroke, Sebastian is forced to leave the dome and make his own way in town.

Jared Whitcomb is a chain-smoking sixteen-year-old heart-transplant recipient who befriends Sebastian, and begins to teach him about all the things he has been missing, including grape soda, girls, and Sid Vicious. They form a punk band called The Rash, and it's clear that the upcoming Methodist Church talent show has never seen the likes of them. Wholly original, The House of Tomorrow is the story of a young man's self-discovery, a dying woman's last wish, and a band of misfits trying desperately to be heard. "

I heard about this book from Bibliophile By the Sea. It sounded interesting.

♥ Melissa @ Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf

That is some wishlist! The only one I've read is The Namesake and it didn't thrill me..to be honest. I do want to read some Cecilia Ahern.

Pussreboots

I still need to crack open The Namesake.

The House of Tomorrow definitely sounds interesting. I hadn't heard of it myself but I'm intrigued so thanks for sharing :)

I heard about it via another wishlist post. This meme is addicting.

Melissa (Books and things)

Yep, this one is good for the season.



Comment #8: Saturday, October 15, 2011 at 22:59:25

Pussreboots

Thanks. I probably won't get to it until next year this time.

Thanks.

You're almost at 1000 books on your wishlist? That's craziness.



Comment #12: Saturday, October 15, 2011 at 23:01:00

Pussreboots

Yes. It is craziness but I'm having fun reading books off the list. I don't know if I'll ever catch up, though.

Cathy Keaton

I'm not sure what a geodesic dome is, but the book sounds interesting...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you get your book soon.



Comment #14: Saturday, October 15, 2011 at 23:03:14

Pussreboots

Geodesic domes look like soccer ball shaped buildings. Or like the ball at EPCOT Center.



Comment #15: Saturday, October, 15, 2011 at 23:46:17

Maria Behar

Sure sounds like an interesting read! Thanks for sharing! : )

Pussreboots

Thanks! I'll post a review if / when I find a copy to read.



Comment #17: Sunday, October, 16, 2011 at 02:25:35

Kero

The cover looks creepy. Is it a Christian fiction? 16-year-old chain-smoker... bad, very bad.

Pussreboots

It's YA.
