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.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass (Vintage Classics) by Lewis Carroll
Genre: Classics – Fantasy
I’ve never read Alice in Wonderland. Never. I’ve seen the Disney movie, loved it, I was even one of the very few who loved the recent Tim Burton movie (I’m still under the impression that he can do no wrong), and I was browsing through editions on Goodreads and came across this cover. Isn’t it just deliciously elegant? I love a simple cover. Whilst I’d also love to own the Complete Works of Lewis Carroll (I think it’s Wordsworth who do very pretty editions of this kind of thing), I would adore to have this one on my shelf.
Graceling and Fire (The Seven Kingdoms) by Kristin Cashore
Again with the simple covers. We get the versions with the girl on the front in the UK, I believe. They’re okay, but I more often than not find portrait shot covers a little boring. Just look at that Graceling design! Simple but so pretty. Anyway, I keep spotting these books around and they have been on my wishlist for like a year now, it’s come to my attention that this series is precisely ‘my thing’ so bumping them up the ‘want’ list a little. Sounds like a fantastic series.
What’s on your wishlist this week? Read either of these?
