My Wish List of Reading

Not so much a blog, this one, but a list of books I've either seen, heard about or have been recommended to me. I have zero memory so this is my go to place when I am stuck for a good read... like that'd ever happen!

The list will change over time as I add more and subtract the ones I've read. Please feel free to leave comments to offer up your own suggestions or your opinions of books you see here. I'd love the feed back!

There is so much more, but that is my start for now. Please feel free to offer suggestions based on what you've enjoyed.


  1. I enjoyed Handle With Care. Read Into the Forest by someone(?) to lazy to get up and look. How about the Art of Racing In the Rain...or The Good, Good Pig, oh yeah that was a good one too. Boy have you opened a can of worms...

  2. I took a look at the synopsis of Into the Forest and it sound too depressing. But I may add it later. The other two really caught my interest so they are now on the list. Thanks!

  3. The 19th Wife was an interesting read. I like how the past and the present ties together in it.

  4. Half Broke Horses...almost as good as "The Glass Castle", which should be read first, I think. This one give you an idea of why Jeanette's mother was the way she was.

    Civil War Wives...haven't read it, but now I want to!!

    Under The Dome...King's best book in a while. It's sort of a "The Stand" lite.

    Lost City of Z...haven't read it, but I am currently reading his other book. Jury's still out on that one.

    The Nineteenth Wife...already on my hold list at the library!

    The Kitchen House...wonderful!!!

    Henrietta Lacks...also on my library hold list. I've heard it's great.

  5. Of the Jodi Picoult books, I preferred 'My Sister's Keeper' over 'Handle with Care'. I liked 'The Kitchen House', but *loved* 'The Longest Memory' in the same genre better. When I'm done with 'The 19th Wife' Caiti wanted me to pass it along to you! =)

  6. Kathy, there ya go again, just more of the same things we like in common. I read The Glass Castle years ago and LOVE it! I recommended it to everyone when I was working at Barnes & Noble. I didn't know she'd written the "prequel" until I saw it at BN today. So on my list it went. And a little pat on my back for not buying anything but the very book I went in for! =)
