9 Adult Books I Covet

I know I could do a Waiting on Wednesday, but Mari usually does that and I have a list of books I want to read that are not very YA-like. I know a lot of you guys are well read, so I was just curious to see your thoughts on some of these.


I have an extreme fascinating with special intelligence units. I had a phase that was just as prevalent as my "vampire" phase where I stocked the shelves and my library's catalogue searching for any book about spies. I adore the secrecy and the terrible importance of it all. So, I want to read this book very badly.


Rob Ford became a bit of a joke in politics last semester, and he is Toronto's mayor. I remember reading a ridiculously long Globe and Mail article about his family and being completely fascinated with it all. I've never read a book like this, and I totally want to. 


I first heard about this one in a review. It got me curious, then when I browsed in store, I realized how awesome it looked. I've never read a story from a mother's point of view, and this one seems like a great place to start. I'm very excited to try this one!


He's a celebrity in Canada, and his book has some phenomenal reviews. I've always been interested in space, so I think this book from the point of view of someone with a rare career would be something I'm interested in. I really do crave a "big" book, if you know what I mean. 


You Are Not So Smart was one of the most awesome books I've read in my life, just because I learned so much. Now this book from the same author is something I've been planning to read since forever. I love reading about logical fallacies and discovering psychological tricks that the mind plays on itself. 


Ever since this book came out, I've adored the cover. I then stumbled upon one of the gushiest, yet literate reviews I've ever read and I was completely sold. This book seems to have smart mystery and drama, and it looks so exciting too. If I ever see it, I will read it as soon as possible. 


We all know I'm not much of a zombie fan. But, this book seems incredible. It's actually about recounting one of my worst nightmares, a zombie war, and it seems like it does a pretty great job too based on the average rating it has on Goodreads. Be forewarned though: I didn't watch the film, nor do I plan to. I can't stand zombies. Maybe this isn't a good book to read for me... I may never sleep again. 


I'm curious about people, and uh, how to deal with them. This book seems plenty useful. Plus, it's one of the most popular books ever, and I guess I want to know what all the hype is about. 


I very rarely fangirl about anybody as extensively as I do about Tessa & Scott. It started with watching their really really awesome reality TV show, and then I fell in love with them and their dynamic. This book is a must read, and my review of it will be the BEST and LONGEST review ever because of all the incredible gifs. I adore them. 

I was supposed to get to 10, but I think I'll save my tenth for another list (Note: I haven't thought of #10 yet, and would love to hear your recommendations in the comments!)



  1. I want to read Night Film so bad as well! It sounds so good and I'm always up for another great mystery!

    1. I know right? I've heard it's one of the better mysteries out there. Something about it just makes me feel like I should read it!


  2. I read and LOVED World War Z! It's such a different kind of narrative!

    1. Awesome! I'm super curious about that one. I've seen some people with it after the movie came out (although I haven't seen it).

    1. THANK YOU. Lol I'm going to remember this post and look for some of these books next time I visit the library. I've already seen The Rosie Project and Crazy Rich Asians in store, and I was wondering about them. Glad to hear they're good!
