The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

I’ve heard a lot of great things about this series, so I’m really curious.

Verdict: Stays

A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

Another one that I’ve heard good things about and while paranormal isn’t my favourite genre, I am curious about this.

Verdict: Stays

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

I was really on the fence about this one since it seems very romance-y, but I have a weakness for assassins and Rick Riordan gave it a 4 star rating and likened it to Graceling which I love. So…

Verdict: Stays

The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

This was one of my most anticipated releases of 2016 and I still haven’t read it. Why? No idea. But I still want to.

Verdict: Stays

Miss Peregrine’s  Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

This book sounds so cool I just need to read it already.

Verdict: Stays

Omega by Lizzy Ford

Meh, I like mythology but I’m just not very fussed about this one.

Verdict: Goes

Witch Hunter by Virginia Boeker

This one seemed to have a lot of bad reviews and I’m not that fussed about the genre or the synopsis.

Verdict: Goes

Court of Fives by Kate Elliot

I’m not terribly drawn to this. It sounds like it could have potential, but at the same time, I just don’t feel like I’m going to reach for this anytime soon. So maybe one day, but for now, it goes.

Verdict: Goes

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

Definitely want to read this.

Verdict: Stays

The Archived by Victoria Schwab

I want to read everything Victoria Schwab writes.

Verdict: Stays

Bookish Holiday Wishlist – Top Ten Tuesday

Bookish Holiday Wishlist – Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is “holiday gift guide freebie”. I chose to share with you my top 10 books on my (very long) wishlist. This is going to be difficult because there are a lot, and I mean a lot of books on my wish list. My bookish amazon wishlist currently has 129 items on it and that’s not including additional copies of books that I already have that I really want. So let’s just say this list is the tip of the iceberg. These are the books that I really hope to get soon.

As a little aside, last week I announced I’d be doing a Q&A. I haven’t forgotten, I’ll probably have that post up by the end of the week (I hope!). In the mean time, feel free to send me more questions here.

Alright, I’ll stop rambling now and get on with it.

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

2913377

I really want to read this book. As a lover of fantasy, I feel like this is one of those books I have to read.

A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

25558608

I recently read An Ember in the Ashes (review here) and I loved it. So now I really want to read the second one. Plus, it’s pretty. So I want it.

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

28962906

This sounds like such a cool, and kind of messed up thriller. It’s right up my alley. I want to read it.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

29845906

The description I read for this book is so vague, I honestly have very little idea what to expect from it. But is sounds very ominous and dark and also, look at that pretty raven on the cover.

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

23299512

Earlier this year, I fell in love with Schwab’s writing and this one sounds so freaking amazing, I don’t know why I haven’t read it yet.

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

the wrath and the dawn

I have wanted to read this book since I first heard of it more than a year ago. I still don’t own it and I still haven’t read it. Why? I don’t know. But I want it.

Fantastic beasts and Where to Find Them

30065028

The film was AWESOME, guys. I adored it. I am so, so, SO excited for  the other ones. I can’t wait. I literally cannot wait. So of course I want the screenplay. Also, look at this beauty! Just look at it.

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

21396155

It’s an Aladdin retelling. I have never read an Aladdin retelling. I love retellings. It’s blurbed by Sarah J. Maas. And it’s pretty. All very valid reasons for why I want this.

Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

18001518

This series is really beautiful. Both inside and outside. And I want to finish it.

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

12954620

I hear so many great things about this series. I need to read it!

These are 10 of the books that I want the most. But if you’re curious to see more of the books that I want, or you know someone who you think might enjoy the same books as I do and want to buy them a nice Christmas gift, you can check out my Amazon wishlist.
