My Christmas Wishlist…

Since it is nearly Christmas I thought I do a wishlist so I can see all the books I want to read and maybe you can add a few more books to your own wishlist.

For me Christmas means curling up with a good book to read whist the weather outside is snowing. Therefore for Christmas I need the right book, but there are so many books out there. Which one would be the right one? How would I know it`s the right one? Well I guess I will only find out by read the book themselves.

First of my fantasy books because I can`t help it:

  • Snow like Ashes
  • The Wrath and the Dawn
  • The Kiss of Deception
  • A thousand night
  • Carry on
  • Harry Potter the illustrated edition

These fantasy books I have mentioned are loved my many readers and I just want to read them! I want to read them to feel what people have felt and to learn to love these books. I have been waiting to read “The Wrath and the Dawn” and “A kiss of deception” for many months now, however I never had the time to buy them, but now since it is the holidays I hope I will get to read them- fingers crossed x.

In addition I also know that “The Wrath and the Dawn” and “A thousand nights” are based on a fairy-tale retelling of “A Thousand and One Nights”, so I want to read both of the books and compare them to see how alike they are to the original book.

Similarly I would like to read “Carry On” to see Rainbow Rowell`s take on the amazing “Harry Potter”. I am very curious on the illustrated edition of “Harry Potter” because it might change my perspective of the book, nevertheless I just want to see a different take on the beloved Harry Potter books.

Non-human, well, this is really obvious-it has to be Bilbo Baggins. I love The Hobbit so much and the films is what got me into this world originally, in addition I would also love to live in this world.

Top 5 Wednesday- Favourite Series Novellas

It`s Wednesday and this means it is another time of the week for a Top 5 Wednesday and this week`s is favourite series novellas. This weekly meme is created by gingerreadslainey and here is the goodreads group.

Good day,

Today I have successfully made a T5W post. Yay!

My number one for this meme is very obvious but I love it and you can`t so no to this book: The Assassin`s Blade by Sarah J. Maas. I read this book in September and I didn`t realise how heartbreaking this book was. The novellas in this book follows Celaena when she is 16 and her life before the salt mines. You might think that there isn`t any action in this book but you are surely wrong. The fast pace action makes you turn pages instantly and before you know it you`re at the end of the book. Maas is such a good author because it doesn`t matter if you haven`t read the series in a long while-you`ll still understand the plot.

Next we have Four by Veronica Roth. Surprisingly, if you didn`t know this, I don`t like the Divergent books, I prefer the films but I feel like many people are hating the Hunger Games and liking Divergent instead. When I first read Four I read it disliking the Divergent series, although when I found myself liking the book. I think the reason for this is because I don`t like Tris and I prefer Four over her. Four`s side of the story is much more better and (I know this is weird but) I like the way he thinks.

I haven`t read many novellas so to finish this post I want to list a few novellas that I want or are planning to read:

  • My true love gave to me by  Stephanie Perkins and other authors- I want to read this book because I think it will be the perfect Christmas read and I need to read some Christmas books since Christmas is coming. 
  • The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare- yes I haven`t read this book and the reason is because I`m quite apprehensive and I didn`t like Magnus, but I still need to read!
