Wish List

Wish List

There are so many amazing books out there, but sadly I can’t have them all on a student budget. Here are just a few books I want to buy over the next few weeks!

Crown of Midnight – Sarah J. Maas

I devoured the first one (Throne of Glass) and couldn’t wait to get my hands on the second! Unfortunately, my sister has commandeered it and I have to wait until she is done!  The first is a great story though – set in a medieval-esque world, the protagonist is a female assassin – how could this not be enjoyable? It was a highly entertaining book with just the right mix of magic, romance and death.

Days of Blood and Starlight – Laini Taylor

I read the first book in this series (Daughter of Smoke and Bone) in a day. It is an addictive story – an interesting take on the angel/demon dynamic. I am planning to write a proper review on this book, but just want to delve back into this fantastic world as soon as possible!

If I Stay – Gayle Forman

I have heard quite a bit about this on tumblr and it is also coming out as a movie pretty soon. It’s a story about a girl in a coma, having to make the decision between life and death. I tend to enjoy stories like this and with all the rave reviews, I definitely want to grab this one before the film comes out!

Four – Veronica Roth

Another book in the highly intriguing world of ‘Divergent’. Not normally a fan of spin-offs but I loved the setting of Roth’s series to want to read this one too. It’s not a book as such, but a collection of short stories concerning the different periods in Tobias’ life and the choices he has to make.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer – Michelle Hodkin

In a bit of a YA phase – I know I should try some adult fiction for a break but there are too many great, easy reads in the realm of young adult. And according to the Internet, this seems to be one of them. A lot of quotes from this book I have seen floating around resonate with me so I’m really keen to give it a try. No idea what to expect really – my tumblr feed loves it but the first page of Goodreads not so much. The blurb isn’t a big giveaway either….

Not That Kind of Girl – Lena Dunham

Well, I won’t be getting this one before the end of the holidays! It still has 84 days to go before release. Lena Dunham has been touted as the voice of a generation so I wouldn’t mind discovering what all the fuss is about. Plus, I did enjoy the first season of her show ‘Girls’ – need to pick that up again…. According to the teasers on Goodreads, it is set to be very funny and well worth the wait. I do need to read something aimed at adults too…..

Comment below what books you’re planning to purchase – I’d love to know what it is you’re looking forward to reading!

  1. That’s an awesome wishlist, love the choices. If I stay is beautiful, really surprised me as I didn’t think it’d be THAT good. I wasn’t a fan of Throne of Glass, I couldn’t get around the names and provinces, but it’s hugely popular and you can find the first two pretty cheap now at most bookshops. Mara Dyer is another awesome one, have read the first two, but not sure if the third and final book is out yet. Hope you can snap up a few copies and looking forward to seeing what you think of them ❤ Happy reading.
