I don’t know about you guys but I am constantly window shopping online for books. I have regular sessions, scrolling through Amazon and just adding and deleting books from my wishlist. Here are five books I recently added.
The Lunar Chronicles Boxed Set
The Lunar Chronicles is a series of young adult science fiction novels written by American author Marissa Meyer.
Each book entails a new take on an old fairy tale, including Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Snow White.
I love fairy tales and I love retellings. Although, I’m not a massive fan of science fiction but I am hoping this series will be able to change my mind about the genre. I added the hardback box set to my wishlist. Since purchasing some hardbacks at YALC back in July I have a new found fondness for hardback books. I used to be a paperback queen through and through!
Red, White & Royal Blue
What happens when America’s First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales?
When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius–his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There’s only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse…
I am constantly seeing people raving about how good this book is. I’m not a contemporary romance kind of reader but I am trying to venture out of my comfort zone and try new things.
Clockwork Angel Anniversary Edition
Celebrate the tenth anniversary of the first title in Cassandra Clare s internationally bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy with this sumptuous new edition, which contains brand new content.
Set in Victorian London. Something terrifying is waiting for Tessa Gray in London s Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Tessa seeks refuge with the Shadowhunters, a band of warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons. Tessa finds herself fascinated by and torn between two best friends…
I absolutely adore this special anniversary edition of Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. I read this trilogy recently and I adore Cassie Clare’s world. While I often find it difficult to justify buying multiple copies of books I already own. I think I will make an exception this time!
Throne of Glass Paperback Box Set
When magic has gone from the world and a vicious king rules from his throne of glass, an assassin comes to the castle. She is a prisoner, but if she can defeat twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition to find the greatest assassin in the land, she will become the king’s champion and earn her freedom. But the evil she encounters in the castle goes deep, and as dark forces gather on the horizon – forces which threaten to destroy her entire world – the assassin must take her place in a fight greater than she could ever have imagined.
At the beginning of the year Bloomsbury announced they would be a dropping a new Throne of Glass paperback box set this November. Ever since joining the bookish community I have been meaning to jump on the hype train surrounding this epic fantasy series by Sarah J. Maas. I am not fond of the hardback cover designs so when I saw that a set of all the UK paperback covers was being released I knew it would be my perfect opportunity to finally start!
Crown of Coral and Pearl by Mara Rutherford
For generations, the princes of Ilara have married the most beautiful maidens from the ocean village of Varenia. But though every girl longs to be chosen as the next princess, the cost of becoming royalty is higher than any of them could ever imagine…
As much as I love reading about magic and dragons, underwater themed fantasy is another love of mine. I love reading stories about mermaids and pirates and the like. The ocean is like a whole other world, so unknown to us. All kinds of creatures we don’t even know about yet lurk beneath the sea and I love the mystery of it. This book released just last month and I am very excited to buy it and read it when I can!
Your Book Recommendations
I thought it would be a really fun idea to let you guys have control over my wishlist. On Amazon there is an option to let others add books to the list so I thought I would create a list for your guys’ recommendations. If I get enough additions to the list I will create a post picking out the ones that peak my interest the most! You can add books to the list, here.
