Hullo, my Pixels!

Books are a great love of mine, it's so easy to delve right in and become so involved with the story of a good book. At the moment, I'm reading books for my English a-level course and I've got one book left, so I haven't had much time to read novels of my own choice, but that still doesn't stop me from adding more to my wishlists! My cousin bought me quite a few books from my wishlists last year, so hopefully this year I might get some more, maybe even these ones I've mentioned below.

[1] MERINGUE GIRLS COOKBOOK £5.00 by Alex Hoffler and Stacey O'Gorman
I saw this in a post by Vicky over at VVNightingale (here) and I knew this would be the book to get me into making meringues because of how god damn cute they all look! I've never even attempted to make meringues before because I wanted to wait until I got a Kitchen Aid-esque mixer so my arm wouldn't ache as much, but sadly I don't see that happening anytime soon.

[2] A PUG'S GUIDE TO ETIQUETTE £6.99 by Gemma Correll
I can't be the only one who is obsessed with pugs, right?! I saw this book about a year or two ago and automatically knew I needed to own it one day. It's just one of those books you could easily pick up and turn to any random page for a little boost of instant happiness.

[3] THE BOOK THIEF £3.99 by Markus Zusak
Funnily enough, they announced the movie version of this just after I discovered the book. I haven't watched the film because I still want to read the book first. If I remember correctly, this was highly recommended in one of Carrie Hope Fletcher's book videos, so I checked it out and really liked the sound of it. If you're ever stuck for what new books to read, I'd definitely watch some of Carrie's bookie videos as you might discover something you like.

[4] ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST £6.99 by Ken Kesey
This film is honestly one of my favorite films ever, and I don't say that lightly. I don't know how I left it so long without seeing the film before, and I'm still not quite sure why I haven't bought the book yet. Even though it's quite an emotional and hard-hitting story, I can imagine the book is just perfect, like the film.

[5] THE ELECTRIC KOOL-AID ACID TEST £6.79 by Tom Wolfe
Might seem a bit of a strange one, but I was introduced to this book by my English teacher whilst writing my coursework last year. I wrote my coursework on drugs, specifically hallucinations, so my teacher thought this would give me an interesting read. It's non-fiction, but I think it'd be a great way to discover more about what went on to do with drugs many years ago, especially as it's focused on Ken Kesey, the author of 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'. How cool is that?!

I'd love to hear if any of you own any of these books at all, and what you think of them if you've given them a read. I have sooooo many more books on my Waterstones wishlist, but these are probably the five ones I intend to get next - if I ever remember!
