The 'Great Book' Wish List

Today I handed in my first of three final assignments. I can hear you all chorusing in joy, like the muses from Hercules. As my blogging lately has been nothing but scarce updates - which at the best of times some people find boring - I wanted to bring up a reading wish list. I did a similar one last year, with a nice list of looks I wanted to read over the summer break. Hopefully, if I get myself a swanky job, I won't be having a summer holiday this year, but let's have a look at all the books I want to read soon anyways! 

please blame the quality of these images on the book depositry website, and not my awesome editing skills, ta
Hausfrau is the newest book in my collection, but I had to add it to this list. It started receiving literary reviews at the start of the year, and after seeing the cover, I instantly wanted it. I think it's got 'bloggers book club' written all over it, and I'm certain it'll be a corker. 

The Casual Vacancy isn't a book I was at all interested in when it first came out, but my friend keeps banging on about how good the TV adaptation was, and how you should read the book first as there's a few little changes in it. I know a little bit about the story, so I'll be excited to see if this is in my local library. 

A Monster Calls has been on my to-read list for absolutely ages, and I really want to grab the illustrated version. Patrick Ness has another book out in the summer (August I think?) so I'm going to try and read this and More Than This before it comes out. 

Elizabeth is Missing is another book I wanted to read when I heard about it, but I think I was adamant I wouldn't be buying anymore books until I've read a few on my shelves. OH WELL. I'm sure I can treat myself to this one, especially when it has 51% online. Rude not to, really. 

I thought I'd better stop at four, but I could honestly list the books I want to read all day! I think I'm definitely going to treat myself once my next two assignments have been handed in and just spend a whole week reading in bed. Sounds perfect to me! 

Have you read any of these books? Which books are on your to-read list?
