On my Wish­list is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City where you get to chat about some of the books you des­per­ately want but haven’t actu­ally got round to buy­ing yet!

Heres what’s on my wish­list this week:

The Search for Wondla by Tony Diterlizzi

‘Eva Nine is a curi­ous and sen­si­tive twelve-year-old who has existed only in a sub­ter­ranean home called Sanc­tu­ary, cared for by a robot named Muthr. Eva’s great desire is to go above­ground, and her wish comes true, though not as she had imag­ined. On the sur­face, Eva goes in search of other humans–she has never met one–and soon meets both friend and foe.

A friend rec­om­mended this book to me a while back, she was read­ing it at the time and let me have a quick flick-through and I have to say, the book itself is absolutely gor­geous! You can tell by the cover that this has the poten­tial to be some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent and inside there are these beau­ti­ful illus­tra­tions. Hope­fully, the story and char­ac­ters will be just as well executed!
