My Wish List

by Gregoire Delacourt

Overview:The #1 bestselling international phenomenon that asks, If you won the lottery, would you trade your life for the life of your dreams? Jocelyne lives in a small town in France where she runs a fabric shop, has been married to the same man for twenty-one years, and has raised two children. She is beginning to wonder what happened to all those dreams she had when she was seventeen. Could her life have been different? Then she wins the lottery—and suddenly finds the world at her fingertips. But she chooses not to tell anyone, not even her husband—not just yet. Without cashing the check, she begins to make a list of all the things she could do with the money. But does Jocelyne really want her life to change?

Judy Stanton (11/05/15): Have you ever thought about what you would do if you would win the lottery? How your life would change for the better? What would you do with all that money? In just 178 pages, this book makes you think a lot about your life and if/how you might change it if money was no object. Reading it makes you see a whole other side of unfortunate events that can happen to an individual who receives a sudden windfall of dollars. Set in France, with a well developed protagonist, Jocelyn Guerbetta, who leads a normal, small town life, and tries not to upset the apple cart by keeping her winnings quiet. The book takes surprising twists and turns and keeps you guessing how it will turn out til the very end. Well done!

Faith Bowers (08/21/14): I really enjoyed this books because there are so many what ifs to discuss. A long time married woman who likes her life, loves her husband and is becoming successful due to her blog wins the lottery for a lot of euros.

Should she spend it? How should she spend it? Should she tell her husband? Should she just enjoy the life she leads? This is a very fun book that can be read in an afternoon and make you think. It is translated from the French by Anthea Bell.
