On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. Since my boyfriend (who is also a book nerd & blogger) told me to try out some memes on my blog this week, I decided to pick out 4 that looked cool, and this one seems to be one of the best I've seen. I'll just have problems only picking a few books I'm dying to get.
