Birthday Wishlist

I think I have mentioned before how I like to make a list of things that I would like for my birthday or Christmas. This is as much for me as it is for my husband. Sometimes I’ll think of something that I would like to ask for but then I forget it later on. And my husband gets all these ideas to pick from while I still don’t know what I’ll get. Win-win situation right?

Since today is my birthday (turning a lovely 29 already) I thought I’d share this list with you all. It’s got a lot on it but obviously I’m not expecting to get that much for my birthday if I even get any of it. Who knows, right? And some things are also to ask from other people potentially. Maybe. Mostly I just had fun making this list.

So lets get into it.



To continue/finish series or other editions


  • Visions of Silver by Anne Bishop (in Dutch)

  • The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater *

* I have these in Dutch but the rest in English as they weren’t translated beyond the first two. So I want them to match as I really like this series.

  1. Happy birthday!! Hope you have a great day! The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet looks so good, and I’ve seen a few reviews so now it’s on my TBR. Sea of shadows looks good too. I hope you get lots of bookish stuff. πŸ™‚

  2. I love the socks! I am never surprised anymore because my mother gives me money, I tell my son exactly what to buy me, and my sister sends me flowers. Ha ha. My list would be mostly book like yours anyway. Those Puffin Classics covers are to die for how many do you have already? And Happy birthday! 🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈
