On My Wishlist: November 05, 2011: 11/05/11

On My WishlistI finished The Night Bookmobile by Audrey Niffenegger, Fullmetal Alchemist volume 26 by Hiromu Arakawa and The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri.

I am still making slow but steady progress on The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan. I an close to finishing The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan and How to Party with a Killer Vampire by Penny Warner. I've just started Flood and Fire by Emily Diamand and Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer.

I haven't made much progress in Schenectady by Don Rittner. Library books and homework have taken my attention away from it.

My wishlist is at 975 books, up 2 books from last week.

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

  • The Book of Tomorrow by Cecilia Ahern
  • Of all the stupid things by Alexandra Diaz
  • The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
  • The Alchemyst by Michael Scott
  • Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
  • One amazing thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
  • Penny Dreadful by Laurel Snyder

The Featured Wish for November 05, 2010:

cover artThe Girl Who Owned a City by O.T. Nelson

"A killing virus has swept the earth, sparing only children through the age of twelve. There is chaos everywhere, even in formely prosperous mid-America. Gangs and fierce armies of children begin to form almost immediately. It would be the same for the children on Grand Avenue but for Lisa, a ten-year-old girl who becomes their leader. Because of Lisa, they have food, even toys, in abundance. And now they can protect themselves from the fierce gangs that roam the neighborhoods. But for how long? Then Lisa conceives the idea of a fortress, a city in which the children could live safely and happily always, and she intends to lead them there."

There's a graphic novel version coming out but I haven't read the original.

Pussreboots

I will eventually. It depends on the library and my free time for reading.



Comment #3: Saturday, November, 5, 2011 at 18:28:03

Melissa (Books and things)

Oh haven't heard of this one so I haven't read it either. Hope you enjoy it.



Comment #4: Sunday, November 6, 2011 at 23:05:22

Pussreboots

I'll post a review of it if/when I get it read.

I've never heard of this book before, but it sounds really good! I'll be adding it to my wish list. I can't believe you have over 900 books on your wish list! Actually, I can. I only have a few hundred on mine but that's probably because I have 500-600 books in my office that I still need to read lol.

Thanks for stopping by Book Cover Justice!

Pussreboots

I only heard of this book earlier this week. It's taken me about 2 years to build the wishlist up to 900 books. But I am reading from it a little at a time.

The Girl Who Owned a City sounds very interesting. Gangs and children is quite an unusual mix. I hope you get to read most of the books on your TBR list!



Comment #8: Sunday, November 6, 2011 at 23:10:33

Pussreboots

Gangs and children isn't that unusual in middle grade and teen fiction. It was certainly popular when The Girl Who Owned a City was first published. I think it got over used to the point of being cliched which is why we don't see as much of it any more.

Sarah Brown

Sounds interesting I'll have to check it out. Thanks for stopping by.

You're welcome. Happy reading.

Jennifer @ Feminist Fairytale Reviews

I love Fullmetal Alchemist! One of my all-time favorite mangas (and animes). I haven't read Throne of Fire yet, but I am a big fan of Riordan's work. Great choices!



Comment #12: Sunday, November 6, 2011 at 23:14:14

Pussreboots

I'm about half way through Throne of Fire. And I only have one volume left to read of Fullmetal Alchemist.



Comment #13: Monday, November, 7, 2011 at 00:12:39

Moonlight Gleam

This looks like an interesting read! I haven't heard about it before, thanks for sharing and for stopping by!



Comment #14: Sunday, November 6, 2011 at 23:15:01

Pussreboots

I will review it if I get a chance to read it.



Comment #15: Monday, November, 7, 2011 at 18:06:56

Vicki

I think I have Hex Hall somewhere. "The Girl Who Owned A City" looks interesting!



Comment #16: Monday, November 14, 2011 at 13:41:20

Pussreboots

I've requested the egalley of the graphic novel but I still want to read the original version.



Comment #17: Monday, November, 7, 2011 at 19:16:55

Shelleyrae @ Book'd Out

I don't know how you manage to read so many all at the same time - it would drive me nuts LOL



Comment #18: Monday, November 14, 2011 at 13:42:31

Pussreboots

It's really no different than following a bunch of TV shows in a season.



Comment #19: Monday, November, 7, 2011 at 23:01:32

Yvonne

You have some great books listed on your wishlist. Hope you enjoy them!



Comment #20: Monday, November 14, 2011 at 13:44:30

Pussreboots

Thank you. So far I've had pretty good luck with the books I have managed to read from the list.
