If wishes were horses…

Musing Mondays (BIG) Musing Monday is hosted by Becca of Just One More Page. Pop over and read lots of interesting comments & post your own. This week book-begging Becca follows up from last weeks MM…

Last week we talked about keeping a wishlist. Why not pull out that list and show us some of the books you’ve been eyeing off?

0ooo MM is going to be dangerous for my TBR health this week I can see now…I’ve already added Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse John Joseph Adams (Editor), which looks intriguing, from Becca’s list.

And after a quick trip to my new wish-list (started as a result of last weeks MM) here are four books I’ve had in my hands at the bookshop, r-e-a-l-l-y wanted but didn’t get (usually for reason purely fiscal)…

 The 19th Wife David Ebershoff
19th wife

  Unbearable Lightness of Beingunbearable Milan Kundera

Ooh nice picks. The 19th Wife and TGL&PPS are on my tbr list.

You can borrow my copy of Unbearable if you want.

The only one of those I have read was Guernsey, but I enjoyed it a great deal. You really need to read it...really...right now...lol

Of course, I got a copy from the library of all things.

I have actually never heard of three of the novels. However, the one I have heard of I read just last summer. "Beloved" was a good point; typical Toni Morrison style. It's a Pulitzer Prize winner as well, so I think you would enjoy it.

Thanks for stopping by!
