On My Wishlist #9

It's been ages since I did this last... but I though I may as well show you some of the things I'm hoping to read. Maybe in the new year....     All links go to Goodreads. This is a meme hosted by Book Chick City. 
42 - Douglas Adams' Amazingly Accurate Answer to Life, the Universe and Everything
Awaken 42- Douglas Adam's Amazingly Accurate Answer to Life, the Universe and Everything by Peter Gill.   Like Katy, I really like the Hitchhiker's series, and this just seems interesting in that there is possibly some truth behind it.

Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky. I love the concept of this,  and having just done for NaNo a  world where electricity is  unavailable, it'll be interesting to see how it goes to the other extreme.
Ready Player OneHold Me Closer, NecromancerHold Me closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride.  It has Necromancer in the title. No more reason needed. Andthe rest of the summary looks good too.

 Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.  Looks like a great new world, and I don't normally read about dystopias quite like this. Looks like so much fun.

75 Worst Ways to Die by Rich Maloof and H.P. Newquist.  The scientific facts behind dying in various ways. Fun? Oh yes. And that cover.... love.
75 Worst Ways to Die: A Guide to the Ways in Which We Go

Any of these books take your fancy? Or anything else I should add to my near-1500 to-read list?
Comments much loved.


And don't forget to come back next week for Caroline's and my Japanese YA week!
