If you are like me and have way too many books on your Amazon Wishlist, then I am sorry if this makes you add even more.
I might already have way too many books to read through right now, but that does not stop me from adding more. Is it just me that is worried that if I don’t add them, I’ll never find them again?
If you want to take a peek at my Wishlist, then here is the link. Get some book inspiration and grow those lists!

Let’s quickly move onto the books on my list!
I found this book in the Kindle Deals section and the description makes it sound like such a beautiful read. It is about a 17 year old woman who’s parents are traditional with pre-arranged marriage. It’s 1917, the young woman Naoko falls in love with an American sailor, but marriage to this man would cause shame to her family.
Once she is carrying his baby, her family disowns her and she becomes an outcast.
Present day in America, another woman discovers a letter whilst caring for her dying father. She discovers a shocking truth that she must find more about, so travels to Japan to figure out.
A book about finding your true paths, the meaning of love and discovery.
You can find the book on Kindle, paperback and hardback here.
My brother was the one who showed me this book. He explained it as a story in the Star Wars Universe where you don’t need to be caught up on. It is a separate story, where storm troopers are zombies upon the Death Star. I will pop the proper description below for you to read for yourselves, as my explanation probably won’t be great. But I cannot wait to get my hands on this book!
In the time immediately following the destruction of the Death Star and the years between the Battle of Yavin and the foundation of the Rebel Base on Hoth, the Empire’s grip on the galaxy has become an unyielding fist of retribution. Pressed into action by Emperor Palpatine, Imperial forces have stepped up efforts to hunt down and imprison Rebel sympathizers, shipping them off to newly formed detainment moons via huge prison barges. By necessity these barges are floating chambers of degradation and vice, notoriously unreliable spacecraft staffed by Imperial corrections officers whose cruelty rivals that of the inmates. The Imperial Prison Barge Virtue is hauling its load of prisoners, criminals and murderers, human and non-human, across the galaxy, when it breaks down in deep space. Soon after, the ship’s warden discovers a derelict Star Destroyer, seemingly abandoned, and sends a boarding party to scavenge parts to repair the Virtue. Half of them don’t come back. The ones that do are infected with a virus so deadly that within hours, it has wiped out ninety-nine percent of the barge’s population. But for the handful of survivors — two brothers, the Virtue’s female chief medical officer, and a sadistic captain of the guards, along with a certain rogue smuggler and his Wookiee sidekick – the true horror is just begun. Because those inmates and guards who died of the virus don’t stay dead…and when they come back, they’re extremely hungry. Against their better judgment, the survivors take refuge aboard the massive creaking emptiness of the Destroyer, only to discover that its original population has not disappeared at all — and that they’ve been waiting for them.

Probably everyone on my Twitter knows that I am a fan of Elon Musk. One incredibly intelligent man that is doing amazing things, despite him being a little crazy on times..
I have recently been reading several books about him and this one looks really good. Just too expensive for my pennies right now though!

Ghost In The Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker – £6.99 (Paperback) £8.49 (Kindle)
I read Soldier, Spy by Tom Marcus who was an MI5 agent which was really interesting and then this appeared in the recommended. If you want to see the Soldier Spy book, I will link my other blog post here. I will put the description below.
Kevin Mitnick, the world’s most wanted computer hacker, managed to hack into some of the country’s most powerful – and seemingly impenetrable – agencies and companies. By conning employees into giving him private information and maneuvering through layers of security, he gained access to data that no one else could.
The suspenseful heart of the book unfolds as Mitnick disappears on a three-year run from the FBI. He creates fake identities, finds jobs at a law firm and hospital, and keeps tabs on his myriad pursuers – all while continuing to hack into computer systems and phone company switches that were considered flawless.
A modern, technology-driven adventure story, GHOST IN THE WIRES is a dramatic account of the joy of outsmarting security programs, the satisfaction of code-cracking, and the thrill of unbelievable escape.

I have heard SO much about this book, from social media to book clubs. Here is the description as I cannot do this justice..
When Korede’s dinner is interrupted one night by a distress call from her sister, Ayoola, she knows what’s expected of her: bleach, rubber gloves, nerves of steel and a strong stomach. This’ll be the third boyfriend Ayoola’s dispatched in, quote, self-defence and the third mess that her lethal little sibling has left Korede to clear away. She should probably go to the police for the good of the menfolk of Nigeria, but she loves her sister and, as they say, family always comes first. Until, that is, Ayoola starts dating the doctor where Korede works as a nurse. Korede’s long been in love with him, and isn’t prepared to see him wind up with a knife in his back: but to save one would mean sacrificing the other…

I was actually gifted my first book out of this series by my niece. They picked up the second book in the series for me as it was the first ride my niece went on at Walt Disney World. They put the cutest photo of her riding The Haunted Mansion inside with a super cute message too! So my mission now is to grab hold of the first one too!
This book I have seen on almost every book tube video I have watched recently. It is everywhere and I might have to cave in and get it for myself this month as it sounds too good.
Keiko isn’t normal. At school and university, people find her odd, and her family worries she will never fit in. To make them happy, Keiko takes a job at a newly opened convenience store where she finds peace and purpose in simple daily tasks.
But in Keiko’s circle it just won’t do for an unmarried woman to spend her time stacking shelves and ordering green tea. As the pressure to find a new job – or worse, a husband – increases, Keiko is forced to take desperate action…

I saw this one on somebody else’s Wishlist and in a book tube video and once I heard what it was.. straight into that Wishlist. This book is a reimagining of The Little Mermaid and I feel like I don’t need to say anything else about it.

So there you have it.. I hope I have given you some new book inspiration. Luckily I haven’t been browsing Amazon too much this last week or two, so I haven’t grown an even larger list yet. But if I do, you will definitely notice it on my list here.
Happy reading and let me know if you have any recommendations for me too!
