Wishlist Wednesday | The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson

This week’s Wishlist Wednesday post is spotlighting one book, I have a load of Pop’s and no real room for more, I have a lot of books that I need to read so I’m not buying anymore until I read a couple I already have, and there’s nothing I’m really after aside from more space for bookcases, but that’s something that I can magic myself. If you want to see my previous Wishlist Wednesday posts then head over to the page dedicated to them which has a rundown of my posts and a little explanation about Wishlist Wednesday.

Wishlist Wednesday | Books I Want For Summer

While I’ve got plenty of books sorted that I’m taking away with me and will be reading poolside, there’s some physical books that I’d love to own and take with me. So this Wishlist Wednesday is a bookish themed holiday post!
To see all my past Wishlist Wednesday posts and find out what it’s all about, head over to this page which explains a little more about it!
There are quite a few books that I want to read and that are sitting on my Amazon wishlist, but for the purpose of this post I’ve narrowed them down to books I really want to read soon!

The Books:

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson – £4

Although I’ve recently been loving fantasy novels, this YA contemporary sounds right up my street, and I think it would be perfect to read by the pool!

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen – £5.99

I’m in a really fantasy place at the moment and this book is really appealing to my current reading state of mind.

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas – £5.59

I’m up to date with the Throne of Glass novels, so now all that’s left until September 6th is to read The Assassin’s Blade!

Asking For It by Louise O’Neill – £9.09

I adored Louise O’Neill’s Only Ever Yours, and I’ve seen a lot about this book online and in the media. Not only that, but this YA book has now also been republished as an adult novel.

Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone – £12.22

I saw someone speak about this book on booktube and as soon as I saw the description I knew that this is a book that I really want to read!!

Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson – £10.49

Regan from Peruse Project raved about this book quite a bit and I looked it up and it really appealed to me! But I’m not going to lie, the £10 price tag for a paperback has put me off purchasing it just yet!

Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton – £3.85

This is a book that I’ve seen and heard quite a lot about in the bookish world and it caught my interest. This book is part of Amazon’s current buy three selected paperbacks for £10 offer, which obviously makes it a bit more inviting!

What books do you wish you had for this summer (or winter for all those on the other side of the world!) Let me know in the comments!

I’m planning on doing a few summer related posts, so if you have any post ideas you’d like to see then please let me know!

Wishlist Wednesday | #3

A few months ago I posted my second Wishlist Wednesday, you can read both of my two previous posts here and here.
This list is a rundown of some bookish (and maybe even non-bookish) related items that I’m coveting at the moment!

In my last wishlist post I mentioned that I wanted to kick start my Pop Vinyl collection with the Loki figure, while that never happened, I do in fact have two Pop figures! 

My lovely lovely boyf got me the Chewbacca figure (bobble head!!!!) for Valentine’s Day, because, well, he knows me!
Chewy is definitely my favourite Star Wars character and I love him so so much!
Inspired by the start of my collection I justified the purchase of Snape through teaching book reviews on World Book Day, and using my illustrated Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone as a teaching tool!
Now that I’ve got two Pop figures I’m keen to keep on getting more! I’d love to get the Loki, but I really have my heart set on He Who Shall Not Be Named!
I’ve made no attempt to hide my love for Jane Austen and all things Pride and Prejudice, so when I saw the gorgeous copy of Persuasion in Regan from PeruseProject‘s video I fell for the cover! I’ve been wanting pretty copies of my favourite Jane Austen books for a while now, and I think I’ve finally found the editions for me!
Vintage Classic Austen Series 
A slightly less bookish item that I’ve had my eye on is this beautiful Daniel Wellington watch
I think it’s absolutely stunning, and a really timeless watch that could be worn with anything!
What’s on your wishlist this Wednesday? Let me know in the comments!

Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing This Year

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
10. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

This sounds like a heart-warming coming of age YA that I’ve heard a lot of good things about, so obviously I need it.

9. Landline by Rainbow Rowell

Because I adored Fangirl so much that I just have to read more by Rainbow Rowell!

8. Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang

Falling Into Place sounds like a really interesting book that I’d definitely like to read!

7. The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion

The Rosie Project is a such a heart-warming book, I loved Don and Rosie and can’t wait to read more of their story.

6. Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios

I love a good YA dystopian book, so I’m hoping Exquisite Captive is in my sack on Christmas morning.

5. Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

There’s been quite a bit of uproar surrounding Zoe and her debut novel Girl Online, but honestly I don’t really care. Girl Online sounds really fun and right up my street and I’m really wanting to read it!

4. The Scorch Trials by James Dashner

I can’t put into words how much I LOVED The Maze Runner, the ending left me needing to read on.

3. Shopaholic To The Stars by Sophie Kinsella

I have read all of the previous Shopaholic books and they all sit proudly on my bookshelf, so when I heard there was going to be a new one I got pretty excited. The Shopaholic books are perfect for Christmas time, they’re laugh-out-loud fun!

2. Trial By Fire by Josephine Angelini

I discovered this book in Waterstones, read the blurb and fell in lust. The main character, Lily Proctor, lives in Salem. There are horrible creatures called Crucibles. My inner fangirl for The Crucible nearly exploded.

1. The Kiss Of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

This book sounds SO good! I love dystopian books, and I need my next fix!

So these are all the books that I hope Santa brings me. What books would you love to get from Santa? Let me know!
