On my wishlist #1

There are 229 books on my to read list, and I think that I have about 40 or 50 of those in my bookcase or my ereader (I also lent some from my sister). But there are always the ones that I don’t have (more than 100) and that I really want. My real wishlist, with books I really need to have in my possession is currently 28 books long, which isn’t even that long. But still, in this series I want to tell you about these books.

#1 Cloud atlas by David MitchellCloud Atlas
I have seen the movie and loved it. I read another book by David Mitchell called Number9Dream and loved it, so why wouldn’t I love this book? I think anyone I follow on youtube must have read this book, and I need to read it someday, too.

#2 The Horologicon: A Day’s Jaunt Through the Lost Words of the English Language by Mark ForsythThe Horologicon: A Day's Jaunt Through the Lost Words of the English Language
As a big word lover I really need this book. It contains really weird words of the English language. On goodreads it also says that it’s a “book of weird words for familiar situations”. Totally a book for me!

#3 The Diviners by Libba BrayThe Diviners (The Diviners, #1)
I mean the hardback copy, I have seen it on several channels and it’s gorgeous… Also: everyone’s talking about it!

#4 The End of Mr. Y by Scarlett ThomasThe End of Mr. Y
This seems like such a great book! As it’s practically about another book. And if you read this: “A cursed book. A missing professor. Some nefarious men in gray suits. And a dreamworld called the Troposphere?” wouldn’t you just want to read this book?!

#5 Seraphina by Rachel HartmanSeraphina (Seraphina, #1)
In this book there are dragons. Also: these dragons can walk around as humans. Do I have to say more?

I hope you enjoyed this post! Which books are on your wishlist?

Wishlist – Composition No.1

This book is one that I’ve been wanting for a while. After I got Tree of Codes by Jonathan Safran Foer, I went on a search for the publisher of that book. The publisher seemed to have more weird books. The one that caught my eye was Composition No.1 by Marc Saporta.

It’s a book, or actually a box, from which you can take the pages and shuffle them into another order. On the back of every page there is a kind of letter landscape. Really something to read on a calm day I guess, something to enjoy. And definitely not a book to read outside in the wind, haha! That’s why I wanted to tell you about this “book”, because it’s just something many people might want, and it has to do with books! Haha. It’s unique and that’s what I love about it. Almost no one will read exactly the same story, and that’s the beauty of it!

Oh, and btw… you can also buy this book as an app for your iPad or other mobile device (I don’t know if you can get it for an android device), so that’s pretty cool!
