Typing my entire wishlist up is going to take some time! Although it is quite tame this year, there are still quite a few books on there. I’m writing this in October, so knowing my book buying habits, there could be a lot more added by the time that this post goes live.
Time for me to stop rambling. So here’s what I want from Santa this year…
- Am I Normal Yet? – Holly Bourne
- The Manifesto on How to be Interesting – Holly Bourne
- Soulmates – Holly Bourne
- Are We All Lemmings and Snowflakes – Holly Bourne
After reading It Only Happens In The Movies and How Do You Like Me Now? I’ve become an addict of Holly Bourne’s novels. I can’t wait to read these four. They all seem to have brilliant reviews and they definitely seem like my types of books.
- The Tales of Beedle the Bard: Illustrated Edition – J.K. Rowling and Chris Riddell
Everyone knows I’m not the biggest Harry Potter fan out there, but I needed this just because Chris Riddell illustrates it. That makes it worth reading.
- To Be A Cat – Matt Haig
- A Boy Called Christmas – Matt Haig
- Father Christmas and Me – Matt Haig
- The Truth Pixie – Matt Haig
How have I not got all of Matt Haig’s books yet? Seriously though, I actually can’t wait to read The Truth Pixie. Reasons To Stay Alive for kids? YES PLEASE! I’ve never read any of Matt Haig’s kids books and I’ve only just realised that I might be missing out!
- To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before – Jenny Han
I actually borrowed this from my school’s library when it first came out but when I watched the Netflix adaptation, I realised that I barely remembered the plot of the book! So now I really feel like re-reading it.
- The Island – M.A. Bennett
I remember reading this way back in Year 6 and I completely forgot about it until it came up as a suggested book on Amazon. So now I just really want to read it again!
- Say Her Name – Juno Dawson
I’ve only ever read Clean by Juno Dawson but that was a bit of a ground-breaking book for me. The reviews to this one also sound good so I felt that it’s a good place for me to go next.
- What If It’s Us – Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
- Leah on The Offbeat – Becky Albertalli
I completely loved Simon vs The Homo Sapien Agenda so I knew I had to carry on with that series. And What If It’s Us sound so different and good that I can’t say no!
- Reading Allowed – Chris Paling
- The Bookshop Book – Jen Campbell
- More Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops – Jen Campbell
- A Book of Book Lists – Alex Johnson
Books about bookshops are my new addiction. After reading Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops I can’t get enough of them. So here I am with a wishlist full of books along the same topic. Also, A Book of Book Lists sounds as if it can come in useful for my blog, so that justifies wanting it, right?!
- Crossed – Ally Condie
I read Matched earlier on in the year and want to see where the series goes. I don’t usually get this into dystopia but this series is really a game-changer for me.
- Close Your Eyes – Nicci Cloke
- If There’s No Tomorrow – Jennifer L Armentrout
- The List – Siobhan Vivian
- Every Last Word – Tamara Ireland Stone
- All These Beautiful Strangers – Elizabeth Klehfoth
These are ones that Amazon suggested to me and I thought they sounded interesting. And that it just about the only reason that they have made it onto my wishlist. I haven’t seen any bloggers review any of these yet but hopefully, they will be good.
- Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can’t Avoid – Lemony Snicket
Lemony Snicket. Do I need to say anything else?
- The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue – Mackenzi Lee
- From Twinkle, With Love – Sandhya Menon
- When Dimple Met Rishi – Sandhya Menon
- American Panda – Gloria Chao
- The Nowhere Girls – Amy Reed
- A Man Called Ove – Fredrik Backman
- The Rules of Seeing – Joe Heap
- Eliza and Her Monsters – Francesca Zappia
These are all ones that I have seen all over blogs and social media. I always like to read whatever other bloggers are recommending so these are some of the ones that I am looking forward to reading the most.
- More Letters of Note – Shaun Usher
I loved Letters of Note because I’m a nosy person, so I definitely need every single book along the lines of that.
- Honor Among Thieves – Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre
As a giant fan of Rachel Caine, I can’t believe I haven’t bought this yet. I think the idea that it is sci-fi has put me off for a while, but I’m feeling like it is finally time to take a leap of faith.
- Still Me – Jojo Moyes
- Every Year – Cecelia Ahern
- The Gift – Cecelia Ahern
- Roar – Cecelia Ahern
- One Perfect Christmas and Other Stories – Paige Toon
Anyone who has made it to this point knows enough about my love of romances to know that I don’t need to even explain myself for these ones. And although I know Roar isn’t a romance, I would happily read Cecelia Ahern’s shopping lists. I honestly don’t mind at all what she writes, I will still always read it.
- Izombie – Dead To The World – Chris Roberson and Mike Allred
I’m an Izombie addict and I think it is finally time for me to take a dive and try and read the graphic novels. I’m not sure whether I will get along with the format or not, but it’s worth a try.
What books do you want from Santa this Christmas?
