Next week is my birthday and it got my thinking of what books I like to have for presents! I’ve already told my brother and sister what books I like to have (I carefully chose 2) but there are way more books that I want to add on my shelf (which is already expanding leaving almost no room for more) and after taking a look at my Goodreads shelf I’ve compiled a wishlist of books:
The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly
I’ve been searching for this book in all the used bookstores so that I can get it for a bargain. No luck at all!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
A popular YA author whose books I’ve never read but would like to now that her entire trilogy is out. Thanks to Chapters I learned that a boxset will be released later this year!
Vampires in the Lemon Grove by Karen Russell
I love reading a collection of short stories. It’s like a box of chocolates, you’ll never know what you’re going to get but there’s always something for everyone.
Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman
I’ve read his book Fragile Things but can’t wait to read this one!
Flave de Luce series book 1 to 5 by Alan Bradley
Unfortunately I borrowed copies from the library never realizing how much I was going to love reading his series. Too bad there’s no boxset in sight…yet?
The Language of Dying by Sarah Pinborough
I don’t know how I came across this one on Goodreads but it’s a novella and I heard so many positive reviews about it, including from Neil Gaiman who says that it’s “a beautiful story, honestly told.
Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
A booktuber (that’s a book blogger who reviews on YouTube) was reading this one and saying how great the series is describing it as “the best fantasy novel I’ve ever read in my life!”
Game of Thrones boxset by George R.R. Martin
I just got into watching season 1 and I’m waiting until the author finishes the series so that I could get it in a complete boxset.
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Another popular YA series that I would like to get started on.
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
Another book I stumbled upon in Goodreads and heard a lot of great reviews for.
Those are my top 10 books on my wishlist! There’s way more than that but these are books that I’ve carefully researched and would love to have for my collection. Looking over this list and the books I currently have, I really should consider getting a new bookcase. Perhaps I should add this on my list too!
Are there any books on your wishlist? I love to hear what they are!
