Top 5 Books on my Wishlist that I REALLY want to read #TBR

Honestly though… my book wishlist is VAST!  At present there are 2.000 titles on my Goodreads TBR! (not to mention the 150 titles on my Amazon Wishlist!) When I was tagged by Mandy at Devouring Books, I put aside my dislike of tagging memes – only temporarily.

But picking 5 out of 2,000 – HARD WORK!

Two of these titles – ones I REALLY want to read – are titles that I cannot get.  I’m quite certain that their inaccessibility is partly why I want them SO BAD! Alas… none of these have review commitments which is another reason they are on the ‘back-burner’.

1.) Three Hours by Rosamund Lupton

This title is one which has been recommended to me countless times by other book bloggers. Although it is available in Canada, it is not available in Kindle format and I do ALL my reading on my Kindle.

2.) The Good Turn by Dervla McTiernan

I’ve read the first two titles in this fantastic crime series featuring Cormac Reilly and would really like to read the third installment.  Again… it is NOT available in Canada in Kindle format.

3.) With Our Blessing by Jo Spain

The first installment in a much recommended police procedural series set in Dublin, Ireland featuring Detective Inspector Tom Reynolds.  Both the blurb and the cover appeal to me greatly. This one is already loaded on my Kindle.

4.) We Begin At The End by Chris Whitaker

This title has been recommended to me more times that I can count. Also, it has an extremely high rating on Goodreads. It is calling to me from my Amazon wishlist.

5.) The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton

This book has been on my TBR the longest AND it is written by one of my favourite authors. Why haven’t I read it yet? I guess you’d have to blame book blogging and myriad review commitments. It is already loaded on my Kindle.

    Three Hours and We Begin at the End are both totally brilliant – in vastly different ways. I envy you having them in your future 🙂

    I use the US version of Amazon, but Three Hours is not available in kindle format on there either. I just read a review of it today and had to add it to my wishlist. My library doesn’t have it either.

    I SO understand what you mean about a book’s inaccessibility making it THAT MUCH MORE desirable! The books on my wishlist that I salivate over the most are the ones that are out of print, not available in my region, etc etc… Here’s hoping these come your way, and they live up to all your expectations! 😉

  4. I’ve just finished We Begin At The End and it was fantastic! I can definitely recommend that one… The others are on my TBR too.

    We Begin at the End is definitely one of my books of the year, I’ve bought both of Chris Whitaker’s earlier novels because of it. I think you’ll love it too, Lynne, and I hope you get to it soon!

  8. Wow unbelievable that you can’t get a copy of Three Hours on Kindle Lynne. Hope they change that soon as it’s a fantastic book!

    The Secret Keeper is lovely – a bit formulaic, but still very nice. I enjoyed it a lot!

  10. Ahhh! I’m so glad that you joined! I found it SO hard to limit it just to 5 books, there are so many I want to buy and read. I hope that the books on your wishlist wind up being fantastic!

  11. I really like Dervla McTiernan’s novels and reviewed this one. It is good.
    My favorite Kate Morton title is The Clockmaker’s Daughter. Highly recommend it.

  12. I’d find this to be an impossible task to pick just five!

    I’m astonished to hear Three Hours isn’t available on Kindle. I thought most of the big publishing houses added that format automatically now, especially with books they think are going to be big hitters.
    Love your graphic for the post – how did you create this?

    • Thanks. I keep going to and clicking on the option “I’d like to read this title on Kindle” but they haven’t taken the hint yet. 😆 As far as the graphic goes, I get a lot of my graphics from FavPng and manipulate them on Photoshop.
