Bookstore Trip Checklist

Note: This is just a list of books that I want on my shelf book stack before the half of 2016. I just want to keep tabs on them because it has been a year since I spotted this but I never got my priorities straight… until I found bookshelves that have these books. I lost it. “I must have these books. Get your piggy banks together.”, I said to myself like a crazy person.

Update (January 30, 2017) I deleted the books that I don’t want to read anymore, already owned, hated, and DNFed. Instead, I listed the books that I needed to get my hands on ASAP. I didn’t delete the other ones because even after two years, I still want to read it.

Update (March 18, 2018): Starting again with a clean slate while retaining some of the books I have listed on here. It honestly feels great to have this list because I don’t get sidetracked (sometimes) while shopping for books. 😭

Update (May 22, 2016): There is no way that I could require all of these even by the end of 2016. But I will update this list with the books that has piqued my attention and I want it on my book stack.

(Updated again. Dec. 12, 2016) Oh well. At least the priority list above this one will be done next year. I HOPE.

Update (July 17, 2016): I think there is a possible way to buy more books from this list. I think… hahaha. I might also make a list of must-have YA books with male leads. But oh gosh, two more books and I will have all of the books listed on a certain Buzzfeed page.

Update (March 21, 2017): Added more books to the list because… reasons. So that when I go to the bookstore, I’m much more flexible with what I want to buy.

Update (August 13, 2017): Added more books because I don’t know my priorities anymore. But this list is amazing.
