Book B
Book C
Book D
Book E

The current library only has Book B, C and E

In Calibre open up the Plugin, import the text file to be searched and press Search.

After the Plugin works its magic, it will show you the result in the current list
Book B
Book C
Book E

This will make it easier example you found a list of recommended books, just copy the list, paste it on a text file, import it in the Plugin, cross out books you have and check/review/buy the other books.
You can sort of do what you want with the import List plugin. It can read a CSV file with a list of books and match them to books in your library. Then you can apply metadata from the file to the existing books or create new book entries.

In this case, you could use the plugin to create empty book entries for those you don't have and add a tag or something else to indicate they are "want to buy".
