On My Wishlist (Oct. 8)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where we list all the books we desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.

This week will be my first week participating in this! I have so many books I want physical copies of that I don't think I'll ever be able to buy all of them in my lifetime! However, one can always dream~

So here's two from my wishlist~


I really want this book. It seems so interesting and I love alchemy and Frankenstein! It intrigues me how Oppel tackles this premise.

Synopsis from GR:
Victor and Konrad are the twin brothers Frankenstein. They are nearly inseparable. Growing up, their lives are filled with imaginary adventures...until the day their adventures turn all too real.

They stumble upon The Dark Library, and secret books of alchemy and ancient remedies are discovered. Father forbids that they ever enter the room again, but this only piques Victor's curiosity more. When Konrad falls gravely ill, Victor is not satisfied with the various doctors his parents have called in to help. He is drawn back to The Dark Library where he uncovers an ancient formula for the Elixir of Life. With their friend Elizabeth, Henry and Victor immediately set out to find assistance from a man who was once known for his alchemical works to help create the formula.

Determination and the unthinkable outcome of losing his brother spur Victor on in the quest for the three ingredients that will save Konrad's life. After scaling the highest trees in the Strumwald, diving into the deepest lake caves, and sacrificing one’s own body part, the three fearless friends risk their lives to save another.


So, I've been wanting a copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower since FOREVER. This has been on wishlist since I was seven. Years have passed and I still don't own it...what is this?! I really need to buy myself a copy, I feel so deprived.

by Stephen Chbosky

Synopsis from GR:
Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it, Charlie is navigating through the strange worlds of love, drugs, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", and dealing with the loss of a good friend and his favorite aunt.
