On My Wishlist really does what it says on the tin. It’s a way for me to highlight books that I have my eye on which have made their way onto my wishlist but I can’t quite get my hands on them for the time being. I’m constantly adding to my wishlist so I doubt I’ll ever manage to buy and read everything on there but I can at least highlight a few. Started by Book Chick City.
This week, to start off, I am going to highlight a couple of books that I am pining for at the moment. As I mention a lot, I am way behind on my reading. I took a handful of years off reading (think I read one book in about 3 or 4 years) and with such a wide taste in fiction I’ve been trying to catch up, especially on my fantasy, so my wishlist does feature a few older books.
The Rest of ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ by George R.R. Martin
Genre: Epic Fantasy
I have a craving for this series right now. A Game of Thrones pretty fast became a firm favourite and I did get hold of A Clash of Kings, book two, and the series was brilliant. I’m a tad slow with my epic fantasy reads at the moment though, but I can’t get rid of the craving for this series. Desperately want to get hold of books 3, which has been split into two parts due to being 1200 pages long, 4 and 5, which all in all would cost roughly £27. Dance With Dragons, book 5, is being released this week, which only adds to my craving.
Dead in the Family (Sookie Stackhouse #10) by Charlaine Harris
Genre: Paranormal Romance Mystery
I have finally gotten around to reading the Sookie Stackhouse series now. As I won book 11 in a giveaway and already have books 1-9, I could really use a copy of Dead in the Family, book 10, before I get there. I do have a little way to go yet, though, as I’m on book 3 and have a few other things to read as well.
Howl’s Moving Castle series by Diana Wynne Jones
Genre: Children’s Fantasy
Howl’s Moving Castle was an absolutely magical movie. I adore Ghibli, and this movie was no exception. I found out through watching this movie that it was based on a book and ever since I’ve wanted to read them. I love stories like this and recently I’ve really been itching to get my hands on the series and give them a read through. Diana Wynne Jones herself was a friend of Neil Gaiman and somebody he looked upto, she must be something special.
Perhaps I should go on a book buying ban for a while so that I can read through my shelves and perhaps even have a little spare change for once to eventually afford what I’m really craving? We’ll see. These things aren’t usually successful with me, I’m pretty awful.
