There are so many books coming out every year that it is hard to keep up with them budget wise. And lets not even talk about all those backlist titles that seem equally as wonderful. I’m sure I’m not the only one that struggles with choosing which books to go for when the budget does allow book buying. And the top books change daily depending on my mood, other people’s reviews or just good prices.
So The Broke and the Bookish gave us the prompt of books we’d buy right this second if someone handed you a fully loaded gift card. And as I am typing this I am sure that I really want these books, but by the time this posts some of these might be different for me. But I’m sure I’m not the only one that switches around like that, right?
It’s kind of ridiculous how many of these are first in books… I swear I have days where this wishlist is mostly sequels. Honest!
- The Crown’s Game (The Crown’s Game 1) by Evelyn Skye
I’ve heard some good things about this book and the hardcover underneath is yellow. Hello favorite color.
- The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
Another new release I’ve heard a lot of good things about.
- Ruined (Ruined 1) by Amy Tintera
I blame this one on Cait. Her review made it sound so good.
- The Rose and the Dagger (The Wrath and the Dawn 2) by Renee Ahdieh
I have yet to read the first book but with this being a duology I kind of want to binge read it.
- The Circle (Engelfors 1) by Mats Strandberg and Sara Bergmark Alfen
I’ve been eyeing these books in Dutch for a while now but never pick them up.
- The Copper Promise (The Copper Cat 1) by Jen Williams
Another one I’ve been eyeing for a while. The covers is what drew my attention. Hello, dragon. I hear very little of this series though.
- The Sea of Shadows (Age of Legends 1) by Kelley Armstrong
I am slighly in love with the covers of this series.
- The Wizard of Oz (Oz 1) by Frank L. Baum
I need this specific edition. I have never read The Wizard of Oz though I’ve seen and read plenty of things inspired by it. And this edition matches my Mathilda.
- Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis
Finally, a standalone. I’ve heard some mixed reviews about this one, but it still sounds interesting and I really enjoyed Cinder which has a similar combination. That cover also helps.
- Vision in Silver (The Others 2) by Anne Bishop
I need this because in November the fourth comes out in Dutch and I am getting that as I gave money to the fundraising for it. So I’ll need to get the third one at some point before November.
- The Winner’s Crime (The Winner’s Trilogy 2) by Marie Rutkoski
I read The Winner’s Curse earlier this year and enjoyed it. So I am curious about this sequel.
- Much Ado About Magic (Enchanted Inc. 5) by Shanna Swendson
I have mentioned this series before. I currently own the first four of this fantasy chicklit and while they aren’t the greatest books of ever I do really enjoy them. And I need to get around to finishing this series after all these years.
Do we share any of the same books?
Of course after I made this list my husband offered to buy me one book. So guess which one out of this post it was! (If you follow me on bookstagram and twitter your guess doesn’t count, haha)
