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.
Story Teller: The Life of Roald Dahl by Donald Sturrock
Just look at that cover! Isn’t it perfect? That contrast between the normal life and the colourful imagination surrounding it. It’s beautiful. Roald Dahl was a part of my childhood, as I can only imagine he is a part of everybody’s, and not necessarily just because of the books which I admit I only read a couple, but because of the films they inspired ((Just saying that I get ‘Pure Imagination’ in my head, which really is the perfect song for the man himself.)), and the magnificent imagination that made it all happen. Just a few weeks ago I was lamenting the lack of interesting people to read biographies of.. but this one has to be a must read. I can’t not own this book!
The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
I just adore these shiny new covers. The design is beautiful, and I’m a sucker for coloured page edges. I still haven’t read Eragon, let alone the others, so I’m pretty desperately pining for the trilogy in these gorgeous covers, and I might have to blame Elle from The Book Memoirs for bringing them to my attention! Or is that thank? 😉 But seriously, I’d love to get my hands on the ‘trilogy’ in this design very much. ((*pine*))
