Wishlist Wednesday [#7]

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted @ Pen to Paper where we get to feature a book that’s been on our wishlist for a long time that we want to buy/read! I have a hugely extensive list that I keep updated over on The Book Depository so I’m never short of books that I’m wishing on.

Where do I make my lists? First and foremost I use my “sound good” shelf on Goodreads where I basically keep track of all the books I’ve encountered that tickle my fancy. BUT, The Book Depository has my most concise list of all the books that I so dearly want to throw my money at and look at one my shelf.

 This week I’m wishing on . . .

All I Know Now by Carrie Hope Fletcher


Carrie Hope Fletcher is a singer-songwriter and an author. She also plays the ukulele, guitar and saxophone.

Genre: Nonfiction, Memoir
Author: Carrie Hope Fletcher
Published: May 2015
Publisher: Sphere
Pages: 322 {hardback}

We all know that growing up is hard to do, and sometimes the only thing that makes it better are the reassuring words of someone who has walked that bumpy road just a few steps ahead of you and somehow ended up as a fully-functioning adult. Carrie Hope Fletcher is that person.* Thanks to her phenomenally popular YouTube videos, Carrie has become an ‘honorary big sister’ to hundreds of thousands of young people who turn to her for advice, friendship and, most of all, the knowledge that things will get better.

Carrie has created a safe and positive space for young people to connect and share their hopes and concerns online, and now she will share her most personal thoughts and experiences in her first book, ALL I KNOW NOW. Part memoir, part advice guide, it will include Carrie’s thoughts on some of the topics she’s asked about most regularly: bullying, body image, relationships and perhaps the scariest question of all: what does the future hold for me? With warmth, wit and a sprinkling of hard-won wisdom, Carrie will provide the essential tools for growing up gracefully . . . most of the time.

*Although she did recently post a video about how to pee in a onesie. So the definition of ‘adult’ is a bit flexible here . . .

Now, this is a book that I have absolutely been dying to buy. I fully intend to do so when the opportunity arises (in other words: when I read some of the books I already own) because Carrie is amazing! I’m sure there are some of you who also watch her YouTube channel, It’s Way Past My Bedtime. I love everything that she talks about and I find her to be a really inspiring person. So of course I want to read her book. If you watch YouTube then I HIGHLY recommend checking out her stuff!

I’m also really excited for her new fantasy book that is coming out at the end of the year. Like, really excited for it. I think it’s going to be fabulously fun – I mean, how could someone that bubbly and awesome write anything but amazingness? With any luck, this will be one of the next books I buy.
