I have a book buying problem and it’s okay because I know I’m not alone! What I’d give to have unlimited bookish spending spree, but sadly my pay checks won’t allow for such spending! I keep seeing pictures and Instagram reels of stunning bookshelves and covers, and it’s just so tempting!
My wishlist is getting so long that I’m forgetting about books that we’re high on my TBR pile and anticipated reads last year! So I’ve decided to make a definitive list of all the books that I NEED on my bookshelf! I’m only using Amazon because it’s easy to create an accessible wish-list but I do try and shop from independent bookshops as much as I can and I want to encourage others to try to do the same, especially now!
Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
I’m obsessed with the royals, to the point that I’ve got mini cardboard cut outs of both Wills and Harry on their wedding days! So I can’t believe that it’s taken me this long to add this book on to wishlist and soon on to my TBR! Everything about this book sounds adorable and I need to get my hands on it as soon as payday comes around!
Furyborn by Claire Legrand
This has been on and off my radar for a year, there are too many fantasy books to keep up with! This was one of 2018’s must-read fantasy releases and follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world or doom it. What more could you want?
Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I’ve been craving some sci-fi adventures for a while now and this one is always recommended to me. Again, I keep seeing fan-art of these characters and I’m already sold! I adored Kristoff’s Nevernight series and instantly fell in love with his beautifully descriptive writing style so I’m interested to see how his style works with another author.
Wicked Saints by Emily Duncan
This was on my most anticipated releases list LAST YEAR! I’ve seen mixed reviews about this one but I’m still eager to give it a shot, apparently it has all the dark and gothic vibes of Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy, so this should be right up my street!
Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin
I keep seeing this book everywhere so I think it’s about time that I jumped on the bandwagon and found out what all the hype is about! I’m fairly positive that I’m going to love this book and it’s characters as much as everyone else so this might have to be a treat to myself at the end of the month!
Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
My obsession Brandon Sanderson continues with his Stormlight Archive. I’ve been really suffering from a major reading slump recently so I think i’m going to wait until I’m on a reading-roll before I order/start this series because these books are HUGE!
Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Another book that I’ve heard nothing but good things about, so I think this might have to be our book club read next month. Reid’s other novel The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is another book on my TBR and I look forward to experiencing her writing style and characters.
The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
This is being marketed as a ‘Cinderella meets Knives Out’ and I’m already 100% invested! Murder Mysteries are one of my majorly under-read genres, so I might have to have a mini-mystery read-a-thon in October to catch up on some potential favourites.
