Top Ten Tuesday : My Book Wishlist

This week’s TTT, is a holiday guide freebie. I had contemplated things besides books to buy for your book lover, books for children, books for the hubby… Instead I chose to write my top ten(ish) books on my wishlist.

My Top Ten(ish) Books On My Wishlist :

I have to admit that my first Terry Brooks book was the Ilse Witch which my husband lovingly read aloud during bedtime many years ago. He grew up on the Shannara series and we are fortunate enough to have his Grandfather’s copies of the above listed. When we found out that a leather-bound, signed by author and chosen artist, copies of them would be produced we were excited. Unfortunately they are limited editions so I have no idea if we will get the opportunity to get them but if we could, we would. I have no doubt they will be amazing.

2. The Sinner by Amanda Stevens

I love the Graveyard Queen series by Amanda Stevens. This one will be read as soon as I can get my hands on it. Eventually I will own a hard copy of all of them. I don’t mind my nook or using my phone because it’s really nice to have hundreds of books with me on something so small but nothing replaces the feel of holding a book in your hands. I enjoy these enough to have both hard copy and e-book.

3. Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews

The Kate Daniel series by Ilona Andrews is one of my favorites. I own these in paperback and they are worn from how many times I have read them.

4. Stardust by Neil Gaiman 

I adore this book. The copy I have has been beaten up by my youngest. I would love to replace it with this edition.

5. Truth or Beard by Penny Reid

I’ve heard so much about this book and series I would love to actually read it. This is another one that I will read as soon as I can get my hands on it.

6. Magic for a Price by Devon Monk

I’ve read this whole series and love it! I have all the books in paperback but this one. That needs to be fixed. Also, I haven’t marked it as ‘read’ yet on Goodreads. (chuckles) I think it’s time for a reread. 😊

7. The Deadliest Bite by Jennifer Rardin

I am pretty sure that I have read this despite it being on my ‘want to read’ list on Goodreads. Either way, I own all the paperbacks of this series but this one. This also needs to be fixed. If you haven’t read this series, it’s pretty funny.

8.Sixth Grave on the Edge, Seventh Grave and No Body, Eighth Grave After Dark, The Dirt on the Ninth Grave, and The Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones

I’m really…really far behind in this series. I need all of these to catch up. (Yikes!) If you haven’t read the Charley Davidson series you might want to give it a try.

9. Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice

I have yet to read this book and it’s been on my TBR list for years now. I really enjoyed the movie but usually books are better so I have been wanting to get this one for a while.

Image result for pride and prejudice and zombies book

10. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith, Jane Austen

This is another one that has been on my TBR list for too long. I really enjoyed the movie so I have wanted to read this that much more. How can you go wrong with a zombie version of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice?

    That edition of Stardust is gorgeous. I wouldn’t mind owning it myself hehe 😀

  2. Your list was made for me just about. 🙂 I love Ilona Andrews. I need to catch up with the Kate Daniels series. Stardust was such a good book. I adore Neil Gaiman and have enjoyed everything of his I’ve read so far. I really enjoyed Interview with a Vampire when I read it. I preferred her witch books over her vampire ones though–which I know is kind of backwards from everyone else.

    Devon Monk is new to me–I’ll definitely have to check that series out.

    Thanks for sharing! Have a great rest of the week, Amanda!
