Book Wishlist

Yeah, I know I still have a lot of unread books at home, but that doesn’t stop people like me from wanting more books!

It’s already November; 2016 is almost over already, and I can’t help but feel that life is getting shorter— too short to enjoy all the stories waiting for me to discover (and afford). That’s why instead of making the usual gift wishlist, why not ask for books, instead? It doesn’t even need to be brand new; worn, pre-loved books are welcome, as long as the last few pages are intact (I will murder you if you give me a book, only to find out the ending is missing).

So here’s my initial list of books I wish I can buy for myself soon, or for someone to give to me this Christmas. I’ll try to update the list from time to time. But if you have other books that you want to share, why not? AS LONG AS IT IS NOT THE TWILIGHT SERIES OR FIFTY SHADES OF GREY OR WHATEVER CHEESY HARLEQUIN ROMANCE / MILLS & BOONS BOOK.
