Top Ten Bookish Wishes

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

You might notice I didn’t do Top Ten Tuesday last week – truly, I struggle to remember which books I’ve read have had epilogues or not! But I’m back with Top Ten Tuesday this week for…

Bookish Wishes

List the top 10 books you’d love to own and include a link to your wishlist so that people can grant your wish.

Click on the book titles for the Goodreads pages.

1. Tell Me I’m Worthless – Alison Rumfitt / 2. Her Body and Other Parties – Carmen Maria Machado

I grouped these two together because they’re two of the books we discussed on Esbat. I really do want to read all the ones I haven’t so far, as our guests have picked some excellent books, but these are the top of the list.

3. Beloved – Toni Morrison / 4. The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms – N.K. Jemisin / 5. The Song of Achilles – Madeline Miller

These all fit firmly in that how have I not read these yet category. Beloved is one I really do need to read, and sounds right up my street. The other two are both from authors I’ve read before and absolutely loved.

6. A Princess in TheoryAlyssa Cole / 7. Cinder the Fireplace Boy: and other Gayly Grimm Tales – Ana Mardoll

These are two I have been eyeing for a fair while. I read Alyssa Cole’s That Could Be Enough and absolutely loved it, and would love to read more from her! Ana I have followed on social media for a long while, and Cinder the Fireplace Boy sounds right up my street.

8. Bad Girls From History: Wicked or Misunderstood? – Dee Gordon / 9. The Dark Fantastic – Ebony Elizabeth Thomas / 10. Character Expressions – Dahlia Evans

I’m always looking for ways to add more to my writer’s toolkit, so to speak, and these three sound incredibly intriguing. I’m also always interested in digging into women in history, especially if they have been strongly portrayed one way or another, and seeing where the difference is with public perception compared to reality.

This was a lot of fun to do, especially going through my existing wish lists to see which books I would really, truly want! Picking a top ten was hard, but to me this looks like a great set of books, and definitely ones that are right near the top of my list. Oh, and of course, the wish list can be found here. But what I’m really interested to know is if you’ve read any of these – and definitely link me to your reviews if you have!
