Top Ten Things On My Reading Wishlist


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us to complete. This week it is the Top Ten Things On My Reading Wishlist. By this they mean if you could make authors write about these things you would. It could be a specific type of character, an issue tackled, a time period, a certain plot, etc.

I’ve found this Top Ten list incredibly hard, so I’ve decided to highlight books that I want to read this year instead and why I’m wishing for them. I know, I know that’s cheating, but they’re on my reading wishlist… so I’m loosely following the topic! πŸ˜‰

As ever, click on the book image to take you to the Goodread’s page for the book!


The DuffKody Keplinger– I’ve heard good things about this book.Β  I’ve never heard of the term ‘Duff’ being used, so I’m interested to see where this book goes.


What’s Left Of MeKat Zhang- I really like dystopian reads. I’m very intrigued by this book, having seen it highly recommended by bloggers that I adore!


Go Ask AliceAnonymous– The fact that the author has called themselves Anonymous intrigues me.Β  I know through linking it to Goodreads that the author has been revealed. This sounds like a particularly powerful book.


Night SchoolC.J Daugherty– So many people have read this book and loved it. I think I should definitely bump it up my wishlist!


PointeBrandy Colbert– I’ve mentioned it before on my blog, but I’ll mention it again. I LOVE books that include dance. I can’t dance myself, but I love watching it and reading about it. I need this book in my life!


Thousand WordsJennifer Brown– I’ve slowly been working my way through Jennifer Brown’s books. I love her writing. I enjoy reading books that deal with issues.


PanicLauren Oliver– IΒ was so disappointed by Requiem. I couldn’t finish it. I love Lauren Oliver’s writing, but my faith in her writing needs to be restored. Will this happen with Panic? I’ll have to read it to see!


Perfect RuinLauren Destefano– I can’t wait to begin another series by Lauren Destefano. I’m completely in love with her writing!


On The FenceKasie West– I am a bit of a fangirl of Kasie West’s books. I loved Pivot Point. I can’t wait for Split Second. I devoured The Distance Between Us so I need On The Fence!


This Is What Happy Looks LikeJennifer E.Smith- I’ve wanted to read this book forΒ a long time now. I’m not sure what’s been holding me back.

So there it is my version of this week’s Top Ten list. I had to put my own spin on this week’s topic. Did you manage it though? What is on your reading wishlist? Please feel free to leave your links to your posts and I’ll stop by your blogs!

  1. Yay! Someone else who found this week’s topic to be really hard. I loved This is What Happy Looks Like (and somehow I ended up with two copies… go figure?) I hope you like it’ It’s cute and one that doesn’t require a whole lot of thinking. I also liked What’s Left of Me. I thought it was well executed. Hope you get around to reading these, Chrissi!

    • I definitely found it too hard, but looking at other’s lists, I was thinking about it too much! I’m glad you liked This Is What Happy Looks Like and What’s Left Of Me! πŸ™‚

  2. Liking your ‘alternative’ list, it was a hard topic this week. Took me a while to find 10!
    What’s left of Me looks weird, but in a really interesting ‘I totally need to read this’ way. Thousand Words and On the Fence have been on my TBR for a while, really want to read them this year.
    This is what Happy Looks Like: I’m not going to lie, I was really disappoint with this one. I don’t know if I was just expecting too much from it, but it wasn’t what I wanted it to be. Was really gutted 😦
    Great list!

    • Thanks! I don’t usually like having an ‘alternative’ list, but I found this topic particularly hard. I don’t know if I was overthinking it. Aw, I’m hoping I’m not disappointed by This Is What Happy Looks Like, but I’ll keep your comment in mind!

      • Haha, I ormally have that problem. I proper stress over the topic and then the next day I will read other peoples lists and think, wow why didn’t I think of that?
        I’m really hoping that I’m just strange and that you enjoy it. I have read some really good reviews for it, so hopefully it goes good for you!

  3. I skipped TTT this week –just couldn’t get into the topic. So bravo for finding your own spin! Looks like a lot of fun reading coming up for you!

  4. Oh my gosh, I cannot wait to get my hands on On the Fence! I loved The Distance Between Us so much. And This is What Happy Looks Like is super cute.

    Oh, and the cover for Perfect Ruin – I love that girl’s hair! The curls are just perfect, and I have major hair envy right now πŸ™‚

    • I just think On The Fence is going to be amazing! I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy! I’m glad to hear you enjoyed This Is What Happy Looks Like. πŸ˜€ I know, that girl’s hair is absolutely stunning. I wish mine went like that.

  5. Totally agree with Kasie West. Her writing is truly one of a kind. I’ve been devouring her books like no other! I actually have This is What Happy Looks Like sitting on my shelf just waiting to be read. I don’t know why I keep putting it off. I’ll get to it eventually. πŸ™‚

  6. Haha I totally understand you cheated on the list. It is really a difficult topic! I hope you get to read Perfect Ruin soon, it’s a great book. I love Lauren DeStefano’s writing style and Perfect Ruin has the same gorgeous writing as the Chemical Garden trilogy. I do love that series more than Perfect Ruin, though.

  7. Haha, I mixed up my list this week to include books that I’m dying to read. You’re right, it’s a tough topic!

    The DUFF is fantastic, I loved that one. Kody Keplinger writes such great characters.

    I finished Panic the other day, and I can honestly say that it’s my least favourite book of Oliver’s. Before I Fall remains my favourite *cries*

    Kasie West fangirls, UNITE!

    • It really is a tough topic. I’m glad I’m not the only one that felt that way.
      I’m really looking forward to reading The Duff. It sounds fantastic, so I’m glad to read that you’ve read and enjoyed it. It’s a shame you didn’t enjoy Panic. I really didn’t like Requiem so I’m hoping it’s better than Requiem!
      *high5* fellow Kasie West fangirl!

  8. Judging by the other Beatrice Sparks books I’ve read, it really seems like Go Ask Alice was her best book, relatively speaking. I’m kind of annoyed I didn’t get a chance to read it when I still naΓ―vely believed that preachy fraud was the mere “presenter” of all these “troubled teen diaries.” It’s not the same type of experience, just as I felt much differently when revisiting It Happened to Nancy, now knowing it in all likelihood was entirely or almost entirely the work of Sparks.

    • I haven’t read any books by Beatrice Sparks before, so I’m looking forward to trying her writing out. Thank you for your thoughtful comment. It’s given me a lot to think about πŸ™‚

  9. I found this list so hard to write as well! I managed though *wipes brow*
    Though I really like your idea as well, these books are pretty much all on my wish list as well! Panic is such a much awaited read for me that I don’t think I can wait much longer!

    Too many books, and too little time!

  10. I read Thousand Words last year and really enjoyed it. The way it delivered such an important message so effortlessly was beautiful. And I have to read Duff this year too!!! I’ve heard it’s really fun and that’s what I want in my summer reads πŸ™‚ And I can never say no to Kasie West! The Distance Between Us was reallllllly good! Thanks for visiting πŸ™‚

  11. I remember reading Go Ask Alice, I was probably in middle school, and being appalled at the girl’s story. It’s a really powerful book though. I really enjoyed Thousand Words. Sadly I didn’t like This is What Happy Looks Like, but I’m definitely in the minority there!

Comments make me smile and I love to reply to them! Thanks for visiting today!
