A wonderful weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish
This week I am focusing on ten books I really want to own/read that are NOT Young Adult- I’m trying to branch out a little more and my TBR list is growing nicely and expanding my horizons. There are one or two YA on here still but mainly it isn’t- a lot of these books, I’ve not really seen around on the blogosphere yet so it will be nice to show something different 🙂
In no particular order:-
Of course, I want this in the beautiful penguin english library edition. I also want this book because I adore North and South, so I want to read more of Gaskell’s works. Gaskell herself was a huge admirer of Charlotte Bronte, and the two of them were two of the earliest feminist authors- so I definitely need to read more of Gaskell!
This cover caught my eye and after reading Practical Magic, I definitely want to read more of Hoffman’s works- but yes, this cover is absolutely stunning and it just reminds me of the Night Circus
This new YA fantasy has been all over booktube. I don’t think I need to say much more tbh.
I’ve recently been recommended this author by three of my goodreads friends, and this book really speaks out to me so I definitely want to get on it soon!
again booktube, but yes it sounds wonderful and it’s getting such good reviews.
I adored Silver Linings Playbook and Forgive Me Leonard Peacock (link to review), so Quick can basically do no wrong
and I will read anything he publishes at this point.
Another one I found via booktube. It sounds quirky and lovely and just yes, good.
If you haven’t already watched this show, I highly HIGHLY recommend it- so good. I need this book in my life because apparently it is quite different from the show.
Okay yes, this is basically another cover buy- but can you blame me? it’s gorgeous!! And I really enjoyed most of the Dark Materials series so I do want to read more of his work.
I love reading about the Women’s war effort and the various jobs they did during the first and second world wars- it all played such a vital part in the feminist/suffragette movement. But after reading Remembrance by Theresa Breslin, I DEFINITELY need to read this book because she wrote part of it!
