Have you seen #bookishwish on Twitter yet?


I was a bit late to notice it, but there is a great thing going around on twitter right now.  #bookishwish is a way to share the books you want and maybe someone will grant your wish.


I decided to grant two wishes for people (for now).  I’m hoping I can do another one in the future.  I tried to pick a younger teenager first and found one in Indiana.  She got her book in already.  For my second one, I decided to find someone international.  I found a youngish girl in the Philippines, and ordered her choice already.


The really cool thing is that you don’t always have to spend a lot of money to grant a wish.  I chose to buy new hardcover copies for both of these girls.  But some people are sending books they no longer want, digital copies, and arcs.


I love that so many people are supporting this.  It’s such a small thing to do that is so kind.


I also thought I would share my #bookishwish here.  I’m lucky enough that I can buy a book that I really want, so I made mine an ARC wishlist.  I doubt I’ll get any of these, but it was fun to make my list to share.  My wishlist is for physical copies for all.  I already have a digital copy for a couple, but most of these were either denied or pending.  I read the physical books a bit quicker now than I do with the digital.  I’m the exact opposite of my husband who is quicker with his kindle.


The Girl King  (I am on the “possible” list for a physical copy, so this is lower on my list now)

Slayer  (I really want this one!)

The Gilded Wolves  (This is probably my most wanted right now.)

Four Dead Queens

Sherwood (I have a digital copy of this)

The Blood Spell (I have a digital copy of this)

Song of the Dead  (This is super high on my list.)


And pretty much any other 2019 release.   There are way too many to list.



Are you participating in #bookishwish?  Have you been lucky enough to have a wish granted yet?  While I’m not granting any right now, I am trying to retweet other people’s lists daily.  I love seeing how happy people are when they receive a book they really want.

  1. I didn’t get anything granted but it was a cute tag I liked it. Sadly I don’t get much traction from people but I want to do it for someone’s
