Birthday Wish List 2012

It's two more days before my birthday, excluding today, where I get to have an excuse for making a wish list. I hardly ever get any of the titles I wrote in my past book wish lists because my family seem to think I have too many books already, which is preposterous. (ooh big word, I got that from reading ya know :D) Majority of my friends  usually give me other stuff besides books. But I still make a list and post it just for fun. (and because I am broke and am hoping that a generous and kind soul just might send a book my way :D)

Birthday Wish List 2012

1. Local Graphic Novels - because I am guilty of not reading Pinoy Lit more than I should and ever since I read and liked Trese 1-2, I thought that graphic novels seem to be the best place to start increasing the number of local lit on my "read list" .

  • Trese 3 & 4 by Kajo Baldisomo and Budjette Tan 
  • Mythology Class by Arnold Arre 
  • After Eden by Arnold Arre 
  • Kwentillion edited by Budjette Tan and Paolo Chikiamco
  • Or any other local graphic novel
2. Award Winning Books - I need this for the AWB Reading Challenge that I signed up for
  • On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta 
  • A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness 
  • Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy by Gary Scmidt 
  • The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing by M.T. Anderson 
  • Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card 
  • Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey 
3. Books in a Series - hay, I seem to be leaving a lot of series hanging
  • King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner 
  • Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness 
  • Fire by Kristin Cashore 
  • Son of the Shadows by Julliet Marillier 
  • Lirael by Garth Nix 
  • Lost in a Good Book by Jasper Fforde 
4. Contemporary YA - to bring some balance to my reading list which is heavy on the fantasy side.
  • The Fault in our Stars by John Green 
  • Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan 
  • If I Stay by Gayle Forman 
  • Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver 
  • Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins 
  • Saving June by Hannah Harrington 
  • Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley 
5. Fairy Tale Retellings - just because I love retellings
  • Beauty by Robin Mckinley
  • My Mother She Ate Me, My Father He Killed Me: Forty New Fairy Tales edited by Kate Bernheimer
Well, that's that. How about you? Do you make wish lists? Do they get fulfilled by your family or friends? :)

    1. Hi Leigh! I didn't get If I Stay for my birthday but I might just get a copy for myself because I've heard that it's a great read and I'm glad that you agree to that too. There's a sequel I think. It's called Where She Went.:)

  2. Belated Happy Birthday, Tin! :) Sorry, I missed it. Send me an email or Goodreads message with your address and I'll send you a copy of Kwentillion and my paperback of Beauty.

  3. I wish you best of luck in finding the now OOP The Mythology class... I wished I had gotten After Eden while it was on print, but now, finding it is like a needle in a haystack.

    1. Oh, I didn't know that they're both out of print. It seems like a wonderful fantasy story and Arnold Arre's illustrations are fantastic. Sayang. But like you said, may luck be on our side. :)
