Top Ten Books I Really Want To Read But Don’t Own Yet

It wasn’t easy, but I managed to limit myself to five books who haven’t been released yet. Probably the only advantage of being an adult is that I have a kindle and a credit card and I’m not afraid to use them. There’s plenty of books I don’t own, but if I really really want to read a book, I’m getting that book.

Le ombre della Senna (Sherlock, Lupin & Me #6) by Irene Adler Downton Abbey: The Complete Scripts Season Two by Julian Fellowes Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

The Irene Adler book doesn’t have an ebook edition, and I haven’t passed by the bookstore in a while. I want the Downton Abbey scripts, because the first two seasons of the show were excellent, but I’m not sure I feel like supporting a franchise that’s been steadily disappointing me for the past year. Ready Player One is the newest addition to my TBR.

The Sands of Time (Hermux Tantamoq Adventures #2) by Michael Hoeye A Coal Miner's Bride by Susan Campbell Bartoletti

A Coal Miner’s Bride (Dear America series) by Susan Campbell Bartoletti

The problem here is that those books are kinda old and difficult to find. Or I’d have to get them shipped from the US, paying twice as much for shipping than for the book, which bugs me. I have #1 and #3 of the Hermux books, courtesy of some scatterbrained relative who gave them to my brother for Christmas years ago, and they were fun reads. I’d like to find out the rest of the story. The Dear America series is a recent find, I haven’t read much historical fiction set in the US and the books are surprisingly deep for middle grade novels. I’ve been reading the ebook reprint so far, picking the historical periods I’m most interested in, and I’m sad that this particular book hasn’t been reprinted since a few people say it’s their favourite.

I’ve been looking forward to The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place since I saw it, and it’s coming out next month finally! I hope it’ll be as good as the first Wells and Wong book, whose sequel should be released in January. Murder mysteries and boarding schools are an awesome combo. And, speaking of murders, Who Buries the Dead will be out in March: it’s the longest mystery series I’m still reading, but the character development really makes it worthwhile and I can’t wait to read what’ll happen next.

Winter (Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer Captive Prince: Volume Three (Captive Prince #3) by C.S. Pacat

Captive Prince: Volume Three (Captive Prince #3) by C.S. Pacat

And finally, the books that are so far from publication that the covers are just mockups (sob sob). They’re the final book in their respective series and I need them yesterday! Winter should have been released in early 2015 but that got moved to November 2015 because Marissa Meyer wants to release her other book first and I’m just sitting here and despairing because I need to know how it ends I need to know everyone will be okay. I have no idea when Captive Prince #3 will be out and that physically pains me.

Which books do you want to read but don’t own yet?
