Top 5 Books on my Wishlist

1) Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne
You know when someone tells you about a book and something makes you want the book in your hands right NOW? That's the situation I'm in. Monument 14 sounds so different and fun. Fourteen kids trapped in a superstore? Imagine all of the food you'd be able to eat, the books you'd be able to read, the trolley-surfing you could do... But it's not all fun and games. Outside of the superstore, the country is in chaos. I actually ordered this book a couple of weeks ago but my order was cancelled, and I don't know when I'll have the money spare to go on a book-buying spree again. Sad times.

2) Landline by Rainbow Rowell
Landline is one of Rowell's adult novels, and I have to admit it was the cover that first made me want this book before I'd even read the synopsis. It's Rainbow Rowell, though; I know I'll love it! The book focuses on Georgie, a woman whose marriage is in trouble. But then she finds a way to communicate with her husband in the past, and she might be able to fix her marriage before it even starts. I didn't think I would be able to wait until July to read this...and now I don't have to! I literally found out a couple of minutes ago that I'll be receiving a proof from the publisher in a few days. DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW HAPPY I AM RIGHT NOW? I spammed my personal Twitter with 40+ tweets fangirling about that. Yep.

3) Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
You probably know by now that Anna and the French Kiss was my favourite read of 2013 - I waffled on about it for days - so I am so excited to read this! Lola is outrageous, ridiculous and downright silly, but she's also a loyal daughter and friend with big plans for the future (honestly, she sounds like my clone. I'm scared.) Everything is perfect until The Twins return, and Lola has to accept Cricket back into her life. The boy next door.

4) Cruel Summer by James Dawson
If you haven't heard the overwhelming amount of hype surrounding this book then you must be living under a rock. Cruel Summer is meant to be a psychological thriller with a sprinkling of romance and, seeing as I tend to flit from loving romance to detesting it and loving psychological thrillers instead, I think having both combined in one book would be perfect for me. A group of friends reunite at a villa in Spain, none of them wanting to think about their friend who recently committed suicide. But then someone turns up with proof that she was one of the people staying at the villa.

5) To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
Lara Jean is a girl who writes letters to the boys she crushes on, but she never sends them, and no one ever knows how she feels...until, one day, she discovers someone has found her letters and sent them. Suddenly all of the boys from her past know exactly how she feels. But maybe something good could come out of it. Firstly, this book sounds like something I would adore. Secondly, how embarrassing would it be if that actually happened?! Thirdly, the cover is beautiful. I want it framed.

What books are on your wishlist?


  1. They're all on my wish list! Luckily my school library has Monument 14 so I'm hoping to read that soon. I'm definitely buying Lola and the Boy Next Door, I just love Stephanie Perkins writing. I haven't read any of Rainbow Rowell's work yet but I definitely want to buy Fangirl by her.

    Great wishlist!

    1. Monument 14 and Landline literally just arrived! So happy that I can now read the first two books on my wish list. I hope we both enjoy Monument 14, and you should definitely give Fangirl a go :D

  2. Some great books here! The only one I have is Cruel Summer, I haven't read it yet, but it sounds really good! I haven't read or got any of the other ones though. :D

    Fab wishlist! :) xx

    1. You'll have to let me know what you think when you've read it. :)

  3. I just bought Fangirl and Eleanor & Park last week. I haven't read anything by Rainbow Rowell yet but everyone always praises her so I can't wait for them. If I like them I might try Landline.
    Cruel Summer sounds really good too. It's been a while since I've read a thriller.
