Psst! Amazon has a section featuring products that people put on their wish lists and registries most often.

Here are some of the coolest and most useful products from that section this week:

1. A bestselling novel that grips you page by page, chapter by chapter, and cover to cover with its intense character studies and vivid depictions of the struggles and intensity of motherhood, teenage love, and the perilous effects of secrets.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I cannot say enough good things about this book. It deserves all the accolades it's received. I was so-so on Ng's first novel (Everything I Never Told You) but this one is much richer, complex, and nuanced. Mia is such a complete and well-imagined character — it is extremely difficult to describe a visual artist and their work but Ng has succeeded so well that I could actually see in my mind the collage pieces that Mia created. Each of the characters, all five teenagers and all four mothers, were richly drawn so that we could understood their motivations, fears, flaws — what it would feel like to be them. And as a writer, I was also intrigued by how many 'rules' she broke. This book is over 300 pages long and only the first and last chapters (approximately 17 pages) are NOT the story of what happened in the past. There's head hopping, a tons of adjectives and '-ing' words, and yet I could not stop reading and I never wanted it to be over." —Maggie Smith

Price: $13.99+

2. Metallic calligraphy markers to make even the plainest of journal entries ("Today was boring, but the sandwich I had for lunch was alright.") seem like a ~work of art~. (Because while everything you write is magnificent regardless, a little color and sparkle always helps.)

amazon.com

Promising review: "Can't beat these for the price. Just like the picture, you can vary the thickness based on your hand pressure. The colors are as pictured; they come out sparkly and opaque. A nice addition to any artist's or amateur's repertoire. I use these for coloring, but I could also see them being used for calligraphy — they would look awesome on black paper!" —Rebecca

Price: $13.97 (for a set of 10 colors)

3. 3D fiber lash mascara, which is fancy speak for a superpowered water- and smudge-resistant mascara that lengths and thickens your lashes like crazy. Seriously, just look at the photos for proof.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "IS THIS REAL LIFE?! I bought this mascara on a whim based on the reviews and then put off trying it for a while because I was worried application would take too long or it would be a pain to learn how to apply (I have two children and am pregnant with my third, so I seriously have NO extra time). I tried it today since we have an event tonight and am BLOWN AWAY by the results!! My eyelashes are HUGE!!! And it's as easy as applying normal mascara! Seriously took maybe 60-90 seconds, mostly because I kept staring at them in the mirror. Called my mom and my best friend right away to make sure they order it ASAP!" —Samantha Spangler

Price: $19.97 (available in two shades)

4. Ridiculously rich but not overly sweet cocoa truffle spread you'll want to lick straight out of the jar from a spoon (good 'ol pal).

amazon.com

I personally love this. It's like Nutella (which is aight to me), but slightly less overwhelming in terms of sweetness *and* thickness.

Promising review: "Love at first lick!! We opened it up as a family to try, and success. It was smooth, chocolaty and just the right sweetness to win over the kids. This would be good on toast, fruit, heated and drizzled over pancakes, piped in ebelskivers, or just right out of the jar. This is not a hazelnut spread, nor does it taste anything like Nutella or Bernard C. spreads; it has a distinct chocolate flavor and is not as thick." —Momwith2boys

Price: $9.98 (sold in two-packs and in two flavors)

5. A party card game that definitely *should not* be banned based on the sheer hilarity and raunchiness that comes with thinking about how your friends would react to horrible decisions.

amazon.com

Super simple rules: One player picks up a multiple choice question card (that involves horrible situations, sexual scenarios, and unethical debates) and reads it out loud. The other players vote on what answer they think that player will choose. Whoever votes correctly gets a #WINNING card. The first player to get 10 #WINNING cards wins. Friendships will either be strengthened, ended, or both. Or as the product description states, "play until you hate yourself."

Promising review: "This game definitely exceeded our expectations. We laughed the entire time. My friends and I love to play all sorts of games; I bought it for my girlfriend's bday bc she outplayed her Cards Against Humanity and this was right up by their alley personality-wise and she loved it!!" —Christy Kincaid

Price: $25

6. A durable and deceivingly roomy backpack to make overloaded campus hauling, hiking adventures, and everything in between way more comfortable.

amazon.com

Promising review: "As a college student I'm usually carrying various notebooks and my computer and it all fits with room to spare! Before this backpack I'd loathe taking my computer to campus because of back pain I would have at the end of the day. When this backpack claims to help with weight distribution, it is serious. When I left my house in a hurry today I was sure I had forgotten my computer based on how light my backpack felt. Surprise! I had it. The material is also weather-resistant and durable. Overall, great pack. It is worth the price." —Sabrina Rivas

Price: $49.31+ (available in 58 colors and patterns)

7. High-waisted yoga leggings with a roomy pocket for your beloved phone (or a champagne bottle as one reviewed noted) — hello, new workout/life uniform!!!

amazon.com

Promising review: "I didn’t realize what I was missing by not having large pockets in my workout pants. I am 5’6” and 280 lbs and the 2X fits without becoming see-through. I got the purple capris and I love that they hold me together and feel like a gentle hug for my legs. I have told everyone I know about these because I love them so much." —JAM2010

Price: $18.98+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 35 colors)

8. A simple but nifty steel kitchen organizer that can be installed over a cabinet, inside a cabinet door, or mounted to a wall — screws are included and the ultra thin hooks are padded with EVA foam to avoid causing damage.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This freed up a drawer which I badly needed. Hung it inside the door under the kitchen sink and it is sooooo much easier to pick out the right cutting board!" —The Melba

Price: $13.97

9. A chic box filled with a dozen handmade, hand-dipped chocolate-covered strawberries for your sweetie...or self. Definitely self. Self love = chocolate. All love goes back to chocolate, in fact.

amazon.com

Promising review: "These were amazing! They ship in a refrigerated box, so they aren't melted when they arrive. The berries were HUGE, but still very tasty and not mushy at all. The chocolate is fabulous. You will not be sorry with these berries!" —Nancy Lowndes

Price: $29.95

10. An iconic recipe book that shares Joanna Gaines' philosophy about celebrating family and friendship simply through coming together and breaking bread — it includes 125 classic recipes that include American classics and personal family favorites, so you can earn the coveted title of "host of the year," no problem.

amazon.com

Price: $14.99+ (pre-order for April 24th release date)

11. A cute pretend cleaning set to help kiddos develop admirable habits about dusting, sweeping, and mopping, oh my! Because it's never too early, amirite?

amazon.com

If only I had one of these when I was little...maybe I wouldn't be the messy dumpster I am today. Maybe.

Promising review: "Good quality and realistic. My preschooler and toddler are no longer interested in my real broom, which is great because I can finally sweep without them helping, aka stepping in and tracking piles of dirt everywhere. Some days they fight over the mop or dust pan. I also ask them to clean up if they spill (dry, relatively clean) food on the floor hoping they will learn to clean up after themselves. Fun pretend and educational (and wishful-thinking) toy." —Cary U.

Price: $26.18

12. A moving poetry collection that anyone who is currently experiencing (or *has ever* experienced) heartache and heartbreak that everything's gon' be alright. Truly, truly.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This definitely isn't what I expected from this author; it had more hope and love than just beautiful sorrow like so many of their other works. But I am truly in awe of just how many connections and moments of inspiration this book contained within such a fragile spine. I have this both in paperback and e-book form but I have to say that, while the ebook was close, it wasn't quite close enough in format to truly convey the author's change in style, depending on the heart of each piece." —Madison Rene

Price: $0.99+

13. A delightfully squishy cat paw mousepad for comfort, cuteness, and work break material all day long.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Perfect for any smart cat ladies out there. Very comfortable. I usually have a lot of wrist pain when using my computer (due to a condition similar to arthritis). Recently, I was working on a project for four to five days straight and not one bit of pain at all. I recommend this mouse pad 100%." —Yvette

Price: $19.99

14. A squishy and porous rain cloud toy to make bathtime — gasp now, go ahead — actually a blast!

amazon.com

Promising review: "I have nothing better to do than to write reviews about bath tubs and bath toys at three in the morning because I truly sweat the details and research in this beloved and sometimes-feared chore (bathtime). You submerge this in water and it fills up perfectly. This is not a cheap water gun party favor from your kids' friends' birthday. All angles work, but the best way is to submerge it all. Uniform-sized air bubbles pop up like a dance. Next, you cover the hole with one finger and wrap your other fingers around. Then you release the finger on top, and downpour! To clean or aerate, just squeeze the sides of the cloud and a gap will appear at the centerline. Stick one fingernail inside while squeezing the whole thing with the other hand, and pry it open. Voila. Lay open on a towel and it dries completely in minutes. Is this patented? All bath toys need this mechanism. No mold problems. This is a thing of beauty once snapped back together and displayed on my bathroom counter." —LAMOM

Price: $13.99

15. A reusable lint and hair remover that's perfect for all your little household cleanups. And it ~refreshes~ itself with a little bit of soap and warm water.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I wish I'd found these earlier! You just run a little water over them and the line starts rolling in on itself towards both ends of the cylinder, ready to fall right off with a little tug. Love that I don't have to buy refills. I can't believe they still have those refill-based ones, given that this is available. It seems that the lint falls away a little faster when the water is warmer, though the strength of the stream doesn't seem to matter a lot." —BlackfishDVD

Price: $10.99+ (two sizes)

16. A kiddo-friendly bookshelf/reading nook to encourage more time spent exploring magical worlds through words and pictures.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I'm 39 weeks pregnant and put this together myself, so don't worry about it being too physically taxing. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I appreciated that it listed all the parts, so I could verify I had everything. The only thing you will need that's not included in the box is a Phillips head screwdriver and maybe a way to get the adhesive off from the stickers. This piece looks great in our nursery!" —R. Drake

Price: $78.76+ (espresso, white, and natural)

17. A super durable bike cover that protects your ride from wind, rain, dust, and all the elements Mother Nature wants to throw at ya — plus an anti-theft lock for extra security (or just weight).

amazon.com

Promising review: "My son has a dirt bike. It CAN be left outside but lately, we have had a lot of rain. I wanted something to protect it from the elements. Since bikes are expensive, I couldn't afford for it to rust! This bike cover is thick, which not only keeps the rain off but also lets me know that it should last a long time. While thick, it's easy to fold up neatly when my son is out riding. The anti-theft buckle is helpful to us too. I'm not too concerned about it being stolen, but with some very windy days lately, the cover has yet to blow off like my grill cover does. We run the buckle through the tire and it keeps the cover secure, even with heavy wind gusts!" —Amy Smith

Price: $12.99

18. A chic L-shaped office desk with pleeeenty of space to spread out and admire all of your life's amazing works. Plus multiple cups of coffee. Plus a pillow. Plus an army of Funko Pop! Figures. Plus, you get the gist.

amazon.com

Promising review: "A very nice desk for the money. I'm sitting at it right now while typing this review. There's plenty of room for my 27" monitor, keyboard, speakers, printer, and a desktop file. Took me maybe 45 minutes to assemble and it's very sturdy. I especially like the foot rails on the back! Pleased with my purchase." —Brent W.

Price: $148.99+ (four colors)

19. Miracle berry tablets that seem gimmicky, but I personally swear on my grave that they're not — they really do 100% make sour/tart (and even savory) foods taste sweet.

amazon.com

I'm personally tried these with lemon slices and WOOOOOOW it's wild.

Promising review: "I have been wanting to try these for years. After watching a friend post about them and her experience, I broke down and bought them. Before trying them I made a list of all the things that people thought worked best. The key to getting the most out of your experience is gathering acidic fruits and sour candies! We had great luck with strawberries, lemons, limes, grapefruit, Granny Smith apples, and Sour Patch Kids. We tried some smoked cheddar, as the insert suggested cheese, and it enhanced the flavor tenfold. It also made Boulder Canyon sweet vinegar chips even sweeter!" —jrenken88

Price: $17.50 (10-count)

20. A rotating 20-jar spice rack so you know exactly where your oregano, rosemary, and basil are right when you need them, instead of frantically searching through your cabinets while your stew is a-brewin' on the stovetop.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I'd been needing a spice rack for a while so I could tame the conglomerate of spice jars in my pantry. Love it. Looks great, well made, and rotates well. Plus it came with 20 filled spice jars. To be honest, there were six spices that I'd probably never use, so I just emptied those bottles and refilled them with some I'd get more use out of. Seriously good deal, as the price equates to roughly $1.40 per jar for the spices (which would cost substantially more at the supermarket) and makes this awesome rack virtually a free bonus." —Dan P. or Carol P.

Price: $28.99

21. An Echo Spot you should buy for no other reason than being able to wake up next to Anderson Cooper's handsome face every single morning — but besides that, it has fuller sound than a Dot *and* has a crisp display (that can turn into an analog clock if desired), plus all of the other smart-ass features Alexa is capable of.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I am not one for reviews but I just had to write this. This thing is a work of art. My whole house is a smart house from my locks to my thermostats. I have one Echo, four Echo Dots, and now one Echo Spot. I am a total Apple Guy, but I'd choose Alexa over Siri any day. Amazon has knocked it out of the park!" —Apple Guy

Price: $114.99 (or five monthly payments of $23.99)
