Bookish Bucket List

On Fridays I add items to my bookish bucket list. Last week I added: visit Venice, Italy, own and read the Game of Thrones series, and go snorkeling in Hawaii.

Read Wuthering Heights

I actually own a very old version of this book, not sure if it’s first edition or not. I might have started it back in High School (more than ten years ago if you must know), but I never finished it. It is referenced in so many other books that I feel like I already know what it’s about, but I feel like I do need to read it someday.

Visit Paris, France

In Jojo Moyes’ book Me Before You, Louisa Clark yearns to visit this little café in Paris which Will described for her in great detail. Ever since I read this book I’ve wanted to visit this city and sit in one such place sipping on coffee and reading a good book, maybe this same one.

Own the Blood of Eden series

I feel like the Blood of Eden series by Julie Kagawa is so underrated, but I really loved it and would like to own it. It’s a dystopian saga, with a strong female main character, and vampires. What more can you ask for? I currently own the e-books, but I will be adding the real books to my collection soon.

What are some book related things you wish to do?

Potential Guilty Pleasure

Last week I talked about my guilty pleasures, when it comes to certain books and authors. These are books that I have to be in a certain mood to enjoy. A few months ago I read Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, and I can see her books starting to become my new guilty pleasures.

I loved her writing. Her characters were so grounded and real. The story was uplifting and heartbreaking at the same time. It gave me all the feels. Even though I knew what would happen because I had seen the movie, the book was really different. Emilia Clarke did a great job in the movie though, and I couldn’t help imagining her as Louisa while I read the book.

I did not continue reading the books that come after Me Before You, because I felt like that story line was over and no other books needed to follow it. But, I will definitely be reading some of her other books. I have added The Peacock Emporium to by TBR list, and I can’t wait to be in the mood to read it.

Have you read any of her books? Any you would recommend?
