Top Ten Tuesday: Books that have been on my Wishlist the longest

hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

I don’t have 10 unread books on the shelves, so I give you books from my wishlist instead. And let’s not mention Martin, Rothfuss & Lynch.

Flesh and Spirit / Carol Berg


I’ve wanted to read this for so long but it’s not priority. I already read another book by the author, called ‘Transformation’, which was average but had a great bromance. Although I won’t continue with that particular series, I am still interested in Berg’s other novels.

The Wilful Princess and the Piebald Prince / Robin Hobb


It was always so expensive in the stores. Especially for a novella. I still want to read it, because it’s the only story from the Realms of the Elderlings I haven’t read yet.

The Free / Brian Ruckley

I almost forgot that I had this on my wishlist! It’s definitely not high priority, but I’d still be interested. It’s about a group of mercenaries, so definitely something for me. If it has mercenaries or dragons in it, it gets my attention.

The Forbidden Library / Django Wexler


I love library settings, so this will be read at some point.

The Forge of Darkness / Steven Erikson


If i hadn’t decided to re-read the whole Malazan series before starting that… It will probably take a couple more years until I get to it. At last it’s already complete, so I can read them all in a row.

Every Pratchett I haven’t read yet


Like this one. But I am re-reading the whole series chronologically and it will also take years to get to them all. Doesn’t matter though – eventually I’ll catch up 😦 No new ones coming anymore..

A Fortress of Grey Ice / J. V. Jones


Second part of the Sword of Shadows series. i was stalling on this, because the author stopped writing for a couple of years and there was no news on whether the series will be continued. Now she’s back and I am rereading the first before I will get to this one.

Betrayal / Fiona McIntosh


I almost forgot about this one as well! I remember that a friend really liked them and recommended them to me. I was interested, as we mostly like the same books.Β  I will still give it a go, but no high priority.

Stonewielder / Ian C. Esslemont


The third Malazan novel and I haven’t continued yet, because I wasn’t a big fan of the second. I heard it’s getting much better though, so I will definitely read it at some point. I want to read ALL the Malaz novels^^

Shadows Linger / Glen Cook

Shame on me, I totally forgot Glen Cook! I like the Black Company and will probably sneak it in soon.


  1. I only read a few Pratchett books, but the fifths elefant was one of it. I really liked it ❀ Reading them in chronological order is a great idea. Should do it as well, so it's not so hard to decide which one to read next. But yeah I hate Rincewind, so I'm kind of hesitant to start…

  2. It is shocking how expensive novella’s are in comparison to full books sometimes. I’ve seen the the piebald prince in the store too but haven’t picked it up for the same reason. Same on all Pratchett (in my case though those I don’t own yet which are many and many and many books).

      1. Eeeh, Australia is expensive! πŸ˜€ Makes you think twice about just buying & hoarding πŸ˜€

        When I was still living in Europe, my TBR was always between 30 and 50. I didn’t like that!


  3. I started reading all Pratchett in chronological order at one point, too, but gave up (because Rincewind). I might re-read the Rincewind books at some point, but I think I’m going to start my semi-chronological Pratchett reading with the first book about the witches. (Equal Rites, I think?) Or maybe I’ll do something completely different and start with the Tiffany Aching books, and then go back to the main series.

      1. Yay! I have been told before that it’s a series but a loose one, so that’s good! I know I’ve liked several of them, but that Rincewind is why I haven’t started over form the beginning again.

  4. I’m with you on so many of these books! Hobb, Esslemont, Pratchett…. even looking at this list makes me feel the need to get off the computerand get reading! Fabulous covers too!! πŸ˜€

  5. Oh gosh, Fiona McIntosh. I picked up a couple of her books on my first trip to Oz and ended up writing possibly the rantiest reviews of my life πŸ™‚ (this was long before I had a book blog, so not saved for posterity – which is probably just as well. They were… deconstructive)
