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. It’s also an event that you can join in with too – Mr Linky is always at the ready for you to link your own ‘On My Wishlist’ post.

by Kazuo Ishiguro
As children Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy were students at Hailsham, an exclusive boarding school secluded in the English countryside. It was a place of mercurial cliques and mysterious rules where teachers were constantly reminding their charges of how special they were.
Now, years later, Kathy is a young woman. Ruth and Tommy have reentered her life. And for the first time she is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them special–and how that gift will shape the rest of their time together.
Since reading A Pale View of Hills, I’ve been wanting to read more books by Kazuo Ishiguro. This particular book was recommended to me by a Goodreads friend. I don’t really plan on seeing the movie. I don’t often see movies based on books.
For example, I’m not particularly excited about seeing The Hunger Games movie even though I read and enjoyed the books. Since I did read the books over a year ago I suppose if I did see the movie I’d have to reread it. That might be a good excuse to see the movie.
I’ve been meaning to buy a used copy of it but I’ve been spending all my money on art supplies so I haven’t gotten around to it. Hopefully I can afford it next month!
