After doing the TBR tag questionnaire, and explaining that I consider my TBR list to be different from my wishlist, I realized that the questions could be applied to either list. So today I’m answering the same questions for my wishlist.
How do you keep track of your wishlist pile?
I don’t. It’s just one big messy shelf on Goodreads. Except that I do keep a smaller next-in-series wishilst, as well as a small upcoming publication wishlist, which I consult when viewing Netgalley.
Is your wishlist mostly print or ebook?
I don’t consider wishlist books to be print or ebook, they’re just titles I want to read.
How do you determine which book on your wishlist to buy next?
Availability. If I see a title on my wishlist, then I pick it up.
A book that’s been on your wishlist the longest.
The Everafter has been on my wishlist since I started keeping it on Goodreads in Jan 2011. That’s a long time. Looking at some of the older titles makes me realize I should clean up my wishlist and remove some titles I’m no longer interested in, but this one still has me intrigued.
A book you recently added to your wishlist.
This book came out earlier this year, but I’ve seen a few really positive reviews for The Martian recently, and so onto the wishlist it went. I love a good adult sci-fi story, and this one has a lot of plausibility to it.
A book in your wishlist strictly because of its beautiful cover.
I try not to add books solely because of the cover, but I’m sure there are several there for that reason.
A book in your wishlist that you never plan on reading.
I like to think I’d read all the books on my wishlist, but like I already mentioned, I need to clean up my list, and so there are probably lots of books there now that I’m no longer interested in reading.
An unpublished book in your wishlist that you’re excited for.
Liquid Fire by Anthony Francis. I loved the first two books in the series, and have been waiting very impatiently for the third to be released. There is still no scheduled date yet, which makes me sad, but I check every few months just to see if there is news.
A book in your wishlist that everyone recommends to you.
If I use the Goodreads ratings as a guide, that book would be The Name of the Wind. With a 4.55 average rating from over 200,000 votes, that’s a pretty highly recommended book. My friend rating average is 4.41, which is still really high.
Number of books in your wishlist?
I don’t even want to admit this, but my Goodreads wishlist shelf has 577 books on it. Yup, that many. A clean up is definitely needed, but that’s a lot of books to think about. The idea of reviewing and cleaning up my list is pretty daunting.
Please tell me about your wishlist. If you’ve done the tag too, leave a link. I love to hear about other readers’ wishlists. Especially if they encourage me to add to my own, because obviously mine is not big enough.
