Top Ten Bookish Wishes | Top Ten Tuesday
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. Every Tuesday the book community comes together to create a top ten list on a particular topic and we blog hop around and comment on each other’s posts.
This week we’re talking about the top ten books on our wishlists, or the top ten books we’re thinking of buying soon. I personally keep an Amazon wishlist of books that catch my eye, and I add to it a couple of times a week. I tend to search my local library catalogue first to see if the book is available, and if it isn’t I go ahead and add it to the wishlist. It’s really useful for keeping an eye out for deals.
My Top Ten Bookish Wishes
Gearbreakers by Zoe Hana Mikuta
Why do I want this book? My first reason is that I love the cover. Secondly, it’s about two girls fighting on opposing sides of a war and then falling for each other. the reviews describe this one as stunning, and I want to know why!
Of Women and Salt by Gabriela Garcia
Why do I want this book? I’ve had my eye on this one since it came out last year but unfortunately I haven’t prioritised it yet. This is about a woman trying to understand her past and her heritage as she travels to Cuba. It sounds slightly devastating, but luckily I enjoy a good cry.
Migrations by Charlotte McConaghy
Why do I want this book? For one, my friend Angela keeps talking about it and she makes it sound really good. More specifically, this is cli-fi, which is a genre I’ve been exploring more and more lately. I’m planning on incorporating some sort of cli-fi feature into my blog in the near future, and this sounds like a book I want to promote.
Deliliah Green Doesn’t Care by Ashley Herring Blake
Why do I want this book? I’ve loved books by Ashley Herring Blake in the past – most notably Girl Made of Stars – so I’m excited to read her first adult romcom! I’m expecting great things from this one.
Daughter of Sparta by Claire M. Andrews
Why do I want this book? I loooove reading books about ancient history and I’m thrilled that Greek mythology has been making a comeback in YA in recent years. All praise Madeline Miller! I remember back when I first started blogging in 2010, it was becoming quite a trend, and then it sort of just fizzled out. But now it’s back and I couldn’t be more excited!
The River At Night by Erica Ferencik
Why do I want this book? I really love survival stories, and this one sounds absolutely thrilling. It’s about some friends who get into a rafting accident and have to try to survive. I’m really hyped for this one! There’s a similar book called The River that I also added to my wishlist because I want to do a reading vlog for my Booktube channel where I read them and compare them.
The Library At Mount Char by Scott Hawkins
Why do I want this book? I don’t know! I’ve seen people talking about this on Booktube and they keep saying it’s best to know absolutely nothing before going into it. So I actually have no idea what the plot is about or what the characters are like, or even what to expect from this book. But that’s very intriguing!
Fireborne by Rosaria Munda
Why do I want this book? Apparently this one deserves more hype, or so my bookish friends say. I really want to get stuck into a great new series, and I think this one sounds quite good. There are dragons. I also think it would be a really great change to recap this one for Recaptains!
The Ninth Rain by Jen Williams
Why do I want this book? This is another Angela book. She marathoned this series a few months ago and that’s when it caught my eye. From the vibes, I think this is something I’d really enjoy, and like I said above I really want to get stuck into some more series soon.
The Simple Wild by K A Tucker
Why do I want this book? Sometimes you just want some chill contemporary romance set in the wilderness, ya know?
The Simple Wild looks like a great summer read.

It does, doesn’t it? I think I’m going to get it soon so I can read it while it’s warm.
Leslie @ Books Are The New Black
Delila Green is one that I want to read at some point too! Great list.
Yesss, I’m hyped to get to it!
Jennifer @ My Book Joy
Fireborne has been on my list since I saw the second book and thought it looked cool, then learned it was the second book. xD Gotta start somewhere. I’m also HELLA pumped to learn about recaptains as it sounds like a lifesaver. Thanks for the link — about to go dive in!!! 😀
Haha that happens to me more often than it should! No problem at all, happy to help with the series dilemma! 😀
Lindsey @ Lindsey Reads
The Simple Wild is on my wishlist too 🙂 Gearbreakers sounds like such a fun read too. Hope you’ll get some wishes granted!
It sounds great, doesn’t it? I think I’ll buy The Simple Wild soon so I can read it during summer – I normally enjoy contemporary books more when it’s sunny!
Leah @ Leah's Books
Ooooh great list of books! I just finished Delilah Green Doesn’t Care and it was amazing! I hope you get your wishes granted.
Ah I’m so glad you enjoyed Delilah Green! I’m even more excited to read it now.
Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense
I cannot praise Gearbreakers enough! It is such an exciting read. I hope you get a chance to read it soon.
Ooooh, excellent! I’m going to try to prioritise it soon then!
Migrations looks great- I want to read more climate fiction too.
Ooh I read the River AT Night (I didn’t see it on very many blogs) and liked it!
Oh excellent! I’ve not heard loads about The River At Night but people who have read it have said it was really good.
I haven’t read any of the books on your wishlist, but I’m going to add almost all of them to my TBR. I hope you get some books from your wishlist. Thanks for stopping by my blog! 😀
They sound great, don’t they?!
Sammie @ The Bookwyrm's Den
Daughter of Sparta was really good! I hope you get a chance to read it. I’d never heard of The Ninth Rain, but oh my gosh, it looks so good! That one’s definitely going on my TBR, too.
I’m going to prioritise it soon, I think! It sounds fantastic. YES, The Ninth Rain seems to be very underrated!
Suzanne @ The Bookish Libra
Great list of books. The Simple Wild is one of my favorites. 🙂
Rissi @ Finding Wonderland
Hope you had some wishes fulfilled. 🙂 I know so many readers love K.A. Tucker’s books. I’ve not read any, but the cover art is always so pretty. Thanks a bunch for visiting Finding Wonderland on this week. Apprecaite that.
