I want to own more books than I’ll be able to read in a timely manner. Here are five of the books I want. I know I won’t be getting them all because I buy and wrap the gifts in our house and we didn’t have a big enough budget this year to get all of these, but my birthday is in February, so maybe soon. The first two books I will be getting this year, the last three I won’t.
Save the Cat! Writes a Novel by Jessica Brody
I have had my eye on this one for only a short time. I started to see it everywhere around the beginning of NaNoWriMo this year and I’ve heard only good things about it. I never get tired of reading about the craft of writing, even if I do sometimes bore of writing itself.
The Unhurried Homeschooler by Durenda Wilson
I’m trying to add at least one new homeschool mom book each year. Last year it was Teaching From Rest and this year it will be The Unhurried Homeschooler. Also, I love that cover!
The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll
I don’t technically bullet journal any more, but I use the same principles in my recollections planner and they are invaluable to me. I bullet journaled for somewhere between 2 and 3 years. I would love a look at the method from the creator. My library doesn’t have this and hasn’t ordered it yet though I did request that they do so.
Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames
Another book my library doesn’t have. Everything I have heard about this book says that I will adore it. A retired group of mercenaries have to get back together to save one of their daughters. It sounds funny and family oriented. I can not wait to read this one.
On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves
Another book I have only heard good things about. And another book my library doesn’t have. This is about a 30-year-old tutor and a 16-year-old student who end up abandoned on a island alone together and eventually develop feelings for each other. I’m not usually a romance fan, but I do love a survival story as long as it doesn’t get so graphic they end up eating other people. And the romance sounds taboo enough to keep me interested.
What are some books you’re hoping to unwrap this year?
