Wishlist Wednesday (3)

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper where we can share books that are on our wishlist. 

Later with MyselfI normally end up picking very similar books, but this was is different to anything I’ve read before. It’s called Later with Myself by Sheryl Sorrentino. I have a feeling I’d either really enjoy it or find it boring so I think it may be on my wishlist for a while, it does sound interesting though. GR
“Twelve-year-old Millie Moskowitz doesn’t know that her father has a “Mafia mistress” and an illegitimate son; she only knows that he sleeps elsewhere, carries a gun and comes and goes as he pleases. When Lee Moskowitz is at home, Millie is his personal foot rubber and back scratcher while her mother cooks his meals, washes dishes and irons his shirts. Seeking to escape her oppressive home life, Millie skips school to meet select neighborhood men for a soda in a delivery truck, a cigarette in a supermarket storeroom, or a ride on the school bus to an abandoned house. Millie is empowered by her misadventures, until she finds herself pregnant by a Black man twice her age. Later With Myself: The Misadventures of Millie Moskowitz chronicles Millie’s midlife quest for peace and redemption, as she faces her childhood demons with honesty and humour.”

My wishlist is filled with books that I desperately want to get my hands on, but this week I choose Stephen Kings The Stand. Lauren talked about this book on Fanatical about Fiction last week and I was Intrigued, so I read the blurb on Goodreads I was instantly interested in reading it and I’ve never read a Stephen King book so I’m really excited to eventually get round to reading it. GR
“When a man escapes from a biological testing facility, he sets in motion a deadly domino effect, spreading a mutated strain of the flu that will wipe out 99 percent of humanity within a few weeks. The survivors who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emerge—Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the nefarious “Dark Man,” who delights in chaos and violence.”

  1. Later with myself doesn't sound like something I'd willingly read, let me know how it turns out when you get it!

    I'd never read a book for Stephen King, I feel so bad about that, and really want to do so at some point.

    Hope you both get a chance to read those books ^^

  2. Your book sounds interesting Lauren guess it has to be something you stumble uppon.
    Nia goo luck with getting yoru hands on The Stand and after that with reading it. It took me some proper time to get trough it.

  3. I never heard about both of that books, and I also haven't read any Stephen King's book before. They sounds interesting! I hope you'll get them soon :)
