Books I really want to buy but I’m restraining myself!

Hey guys! I feel like this post follows on quite nicely from my previous one! In that post I talked about books I had to buy, but haven’t yet read! Now I’ll be talking about books I really want to buy but I’m stopping myself because I have too many books and I cannot buy anymore! I hope you enjoy!

Collector’s Editions: A Darker Shade of Magic, Vicious and Vengeful by V.E. Schwab

I’ll start with Schwab books, shall I? These collector’s editions are absolutely stunning and I want them so badly! But I’m trying to hold out until Christmas at least because they are so expensive and I have a lot of other books I need to read first. But I really want to read Vicious and Vengeful because they sound so freaking good! Plus Schwab is a really great writer and I love her books.

Books I had to buy but are still sitting on my shelf!

Hey guys! Recently I have been browsing old top ten topics and I stumbled across this one. It seemed like a really great topic to write about! I am considering participating in these posts on Tuesday’s now instead of Top 5 Wednesday as I just think there’s better topics. Top 5 Wednesday recently has not been very good for me. Though the only thing that concerns me is that I won’t be able to pick 10 books for each topic! If you take part in this weekly meme, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

I have a 100 unread books to choose from for this, so here’s the first 10 that popped up in my head:

Legendary by Stephanie Garber: I haven’t even read Caraval yet but I had to rush to buy this because I wanted it to match the first book! All first editions had an image under the dust jacket like the first one. These books are like gold dust to come across now and they are so expensive when you do finally find out! I saw someone selling a copy of Caraval for £150 and my jaw hit the floor. So of course I had to buy this for a reasonable price and make sure it matched my copy of Caraval, in case I actually like the book!

Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi: Have I read the Shatter Me series yet? No. Did I rush out and buy this as soon as it came out? Yes! Total cover buy and I can’t wait to catch up on this series!

She’s been careful to keep her distance, until the day one of them is found murdered and she quickly becomes the prime suspect.

October 2018 TBR!

Hey guys! I can’t believe it’s October already! I’m so excited for Halloween and also because we are that little bit closer to Christmas! But I am really excited for Halloween because I love it so much. I’ve tried to pick what I hope are some creepy books to get me in the mood for this spooky month! Here’s what I’d like to read:

Strange Ink by Gary Kemble: As soon as I saw this book I just knew I had to read it. It looks and sounds amazing, and it has black sprayed edges! It just screams horror at me and I really hope it doesn’t disappoint! It looks like a book that is going to be really creepy and shocking… I’m so excited I can finally start reading it!

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco: I have been saving this book especially for October because it just screams Halloween! Everyone has been telling me to read this so I have really high hopes for it! I think it also includes photographs and I really liked that when I was reading Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children.

September 2018 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my September wrap up! I read seven books this month which is a decent amount but I am a bit disappointed with myself as I wanted to read more. I went on holiday for two weeks and read 5 books which I think is OK but I wanted to read six, oh well! Here’s what I read this month:

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater: I finally read The Raven Cycle! I really liked it and it lived up to the hype but I wouldn’t say it’s a series I’m obsessed with. There was lots of surprises along the way and I loved the characters, especially Gansey. But there was some things I couldn’t wrap my head around because it felt like they literally came out of nowhere. Aside from that, I think this is the best series Maggie’s written and I’m looking forward to this trilogy she’s writing for Ronan. He was definitely the most interesting character and it feels right that he’s getting his own series.
