Like most of you, I have a wishlist the length of the Nile or, at the very least, the River Severn. It’s long. Most of them will never see the light of day as they were added on a whim or a reading phase I’ve gotten bored of, or have been so trampled on by the newer additions that they languish on page eight, completely forgotten about.
However, Carolyn from Book Chick City has a solution to make all those neglected wishlistees feel loved again. Each week, she posts a few of those books that one day (one day, God damn it!) she will eventually buy.
I have as much guilt over not yet introducing those unloved tomes to my shelves as anyone, so here’s part #7 of my now-weekly Wishlist. These are three books that I might have eventually got round to owning by 2019. Maybe.
I seem to be going through a Victorian ghost story phase. I read The Woman in Black by Susan Hill (my review is here) earlier this week and now I just want to read more!
The Woman in White is completely different, although the titles are similar. It was published in 1859 while Ms Hill’s book is a modern title and this one features a female heroine.
Specifically, I am wishing for the Vintage edition to match all my other Vintage classics!
I think everybody has seen the film version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, the one with Johnny Depp as Ichabod Crane. I used to love that film; we’d watch it at every sleepover when we were fourteen or so.
Now, at 22 years old, it’s much less scary to me and I’m dying (hehe) to read the book version.
I have Carolyn Turgeon’s Godmother book on my TBR and I’ve been told by numerous people how brilliant it is. I’m sure that after reading it, I’ll immediately want the next one… especially since I read a mermaidish book yesterday and loved it 🙂
