It’s that time of year to start making Christmas wishlists. I’m a list maker by heart. It’s how I function day-to-day. So making my Christmas wishlist is always so much fun. Here are a few books that I’ve added to my bookish wishlist this year.
To be honest, the cover of Slewfoot is what caught my attention, but then I read the synopsis. Now I need it in my life. It is a novel, but it also combines the art of the author, Brom. I must confess I have spent a ton of time on his Instagram since discovering his artwork. His other book Krampus is an honorary mention on my Christmas wishlist as well.
I’ve been wanting to read more sci-fi, and Leviathan Wakes keeps catching my attention. I’ve heard really good things about it and decided I wanted to give it a try. I want to break out of my comfort zone in the new year.
Here are a few sci-fi books I want to try also.
Cytonic is book three in the Skyward series. I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Truth be told, I would have probably already bought it, but I’m trying not to buy too many books this month. I can’t wait to continue on with this series.
If I’m being honest, I’m not sure that I’m going to like Golden Son. It is book two in the Red Rising Trilogy. I wasn’t a huge fan of Red Rising, but so many people that I trust say that Golden Son is where the series really picks up. I want to give it another shot.
The Name of the Wind
I’ve wanted to read The Name of the Wind for a long time, but there is not anticipated release date for the next book in the series. And I’m not sure I’m prepared to have another Game of Thrones situation. But I really do want to read it. I feel like I’m missing out.
Prince of Thorns
I really want to start a new grimdark fantasy series and I’ve heard Prince of Thorns is the one to beat. Again, I have been missing the Game of Thrones world, so maybe this will fill in the grimdark hole that it left.
The Lies of Locke Lamora
Merphy Napier sings the praises of The Lies of Locke Lamora. I’m hoping to finish the Mistborn series this month and I feel like I’m going to miss it. This one gives me some of the same vibes. It’s a heist story with a found family and I’m here for it. I definitely want to check it out.
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell
Frankly, I can’t tell you why I want Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. I’ve heard about it, but I don’t really know what it’s about. But I was scrolling through Pangobooks and I saw a copy of it and thought I need that. Unfortunately, I didn’t buy it then and it sold when I went back to get it. So, I don’t know why I need it, but I do.
That’s my bookish wishlist. Someone e-mail this list to my husband lol. Seriously, though, what’s on your bookish wishlist?
