My Bookish Wishlist


🎵He’s Making A List And Checking It Twice, He’ll Give Me All the Books ‘Cause I’ve Been Extra Nice, Santa Clause is Coming To Town🎵

No? Is that not the way the song goes? *shrugs* I like my version better anyhow. ^.^

This Week’s Prompt: Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree This Year


1. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Jenna @ Reading with Jenna  did an amazing review of this book and while I already want to read it, her raving review makes me want to read it right NOW!

2. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Brett Michael Orr’s review was comprehensive and really piqued my interest in the series as a whole. Aside from the fact that the cover is just lovely, I also am very intrigued by the promise of action and multiple dimensions.

3. Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

I still haven’t finished the series. I NEED this book.

4. Air Awakens by Elise Kova

My best friend told me it was torturous where the last book left off. So now I must torture myself as well and find out what she is talking about.

5. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

I highly respect Bree @ Live. Learn. Write.  and her opinion on books. Not only is she my critique partner but she is also a great friend. So when she said in her review of ADSOM that this book had it all, I knew that I just HAD to read it.

6. The Blackthorn Key by Kevin Sands

Joey @ Thoughts and Afterthoughts  talks about this often enough with enough praises that I want to know and enjoy what this book is all about too! His review was an equal balance of fanboying and evaluation of the merits this book has, while still having that classic Joey thing to it. So I def want to read and own!

7. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

I’ve heard mixed things. Mixed things always pique my interest because I like having an opinion on those things even if I don’t openly voice them. LOL

8. Champion by Marie Lu

I have to know what happens… It can’t end the way she set it up to end…NO WAY!!!

9. My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga

While this book deals with some heavy stuff, and I’m not entirely sure I’ll be able to handle it considering that fact that I have struggled with similar issues myself as a teen/young adult, I am interested in how the issue is handled/portrayed.

10. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Because I love Sarah J. Maas. Kbye.

11. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Again, Jenna is to thank for another fantastic review. She is always to thank for my ever increasing TBR, and it is my goal to make 2016 a more contemporary year in terms of reading. She loves this book and I highly value and respect her opinion on books so I want to know/see what has her so happy/excited/enamored with this book! ^.^


I know. I cheated. I had eleven. When don’t I bend the rules to fit my own selfish whims though?

Let’s Talk

What about you? If Santa could only bring you ONE book this Christmas, which one would you ask for?

Oh, and what are your plans for Christmas? Are you traveling or staying home?

  1. You have some really great books on your list! I have read 5 of them and would recommend them all, so I can only highly approve. I have no idea what to wish for. I have this online-wishlist and just told my parents to choose a book or two from there. Now I am giddy to find out what they went with.

    1. That’s awesome! My parents are coming up to spend christmas with my family and they actually came to the blog to figure out what to get me this year! ^.^ I thought it was super cute!!

  2. OMG I am so sorry for always adding to your TBR, but also not sorry HAHA. All the Light and Carry On are two of my all-time favourites so please read them soon so that we can discuss!! XD Also, Snow Like Ashes is one of my favourites too! And I also loved ADSoM, My Heart and Other Black Holes, ACOTAR… What can I say?… you have a great wish list!

      1. HAHA no I haven’t… I’m supposed to be buddy reading this with Joey but he’s put it down in order to read Truthwitch, Passenger etc. And I’m just not in the mood for that kind of book at the moment.. But maybe February?

      2. Lol! How does a buddy read work btw? CW and I were taking about doing one for Golden Son and neither of us have buddy read with anyone yet, lol. Like what’s the process? Do you set out specific sections/pages/etc to be read by a certain date?

      3. Uh I’m still trying to figure it out HAHA. I read really quickly so it’s hard for me to buddy read with slow readers. I’ve tried setting out specific sections and that has worked okay… but there’s heaps of stress and pressure on everybody when you do it that way. I guess just read and discuss without being spoilery?

      4. Lol that makes sense. I’m a terribly slow reader, and lately it’s been dismal, so I’ll have to discuss expectations with CW.
        Thanks for the insight! It was very helpful!
