I've never linked up with The Broke and the Bookish before, but I've seen the Top Ten Tuesday posts around, and last week's looked like grand fun: 10 Books I Would Buy If Someone Handed Me a Fully Loaded Gift Card. I missed it much to my chagrin, but this week is rewind week, so I get to do it after all!
Here are some books I'm looking forward to adding to my library:
The Broken Way, by Ann Voskamp
I learned about it this week. This year I've felt what it means to be broken, and I think this book premise looks incredible. Definitely can't wait for release day.
The High Deeds of Finn MacCool, by Rosemary Sutcliff
I've read it twice from the library and loved it both times. Full of glory, splendor, breathtaking emotion--Sutcliff and Ireland at their finest.
Outlining Your Novel, by K.M. Weiland--paperback
I own it on ebook, but I think it would be a lot more convenient to thumb through, learn from, and underline a print copy. Plus, it would match the print copy of the workbook I have.
Structuring Your Novel, by K.M. Weiland--paperback
For the same reasons as Outlining as above.
The Ringmaster's Wife, by Kristy Cambron
I loved both A Sparrow in Terezin and The Butterfly and the Violin. Both are full of beauty, depth, hope, sacrifice, and sorrow. Anything Kristy writes I want to buy.
The Lady and the Lionheart, by Joanne Bischof.
This book has been really intriguing me ever since I saw the cover. Joanne Bischoff does hybrid publishing, and I love her brand name: Mason Jar Publications. I'm going to treat myself to another of her books soon to see if I'd like to try out The Lady and the Lionheart too.
A Time to Die, by Nadine Brandes
Nadine Brandes has such a fun author presence on social media, and for that alone I'd love to be part of her street team. But I have to read her book first!
Lark Rise to Candleford, by Flora Thompson.
Technically I could get this from the library, and I probably will, but since on my list of books to read, it would be fun to own. (Because I want to watch the TV show too. Yes.)
The First World War, Martin D. Gilbert
This book would be convenient simply for research. I hate ordering and returning it, and then needing it again for writing. It could keep the How to be a Spy company on the shelf. HOW CUTE. BOOK BUDDIES.
Far From the Madding Crowd, by Thomas Hardy
Another one I really want to read, to see if it's as good as I think it will be. Mostly because I want to see the movie, and I should read the book first.
Actually, ten books isn't too many, and I'm gradually giving myself opportunities to choose a treat after a big milestone, so with rewards for writing and life goals, I should be able to add these in to the family.
What's on your book wishlist?
