Yes, Cinderella, you shall go to the bookstore..
Every Tuesday over at the The Broke and Bookish we all get to look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) examples to demonstrate that particular topic. The topic this week is:
Ten Books You’d Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed You A Fully Loaded Gift Card
Yeah – we’d all love that wouldn’t we. This is pretty easy for me – namely because I have about 70 books on my wishlist at the current time! Some of these books would be preorders some are already released. Let’s go:
- The Thorn of Emberlain by Scott Lynch (to be fair I do have this on pre-order and not long to wait now!) Jean Tannen get back in my life.
- The Waking Fire by Anthony Ryan – I’ll probably buy this shortly but at the moment it’s on the wishlist (which is just as well because I’m a bit backed up with review books at the moment and trying to catch up).
- The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden – I want this book so badly!! Check out this little teaser : ‘A magical debut novel for readers of Naomi Novik’s Uprooted, Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus, and Neil Gaiman’s myth-rich fantasies, The Bear and the Nightingale spins an irresistible spell as it announces the arrival of a singular talent with a gorgeous voice.’ – and now you want it too no doubt!
- The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco -due out March 2017 – sounds very intriguing.
- The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry
- Den of Wolves by Juliet Marilier – I have to catch up with my reading of No.2 yet but even so I still badly want this book – it’s absolutely gorgeous and it must go on my shelves!
- The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry – I loved All The Truth That’s in Me that I want more from this author and this sounds like something I will love : ‘Buried deep within the archives of a convent in medieval France is an untold story of love, loss, and wonder and the two girls at the heart of it all.’
- Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt picked this up from a recent blogger’s Top Ten Tuesday so seems like a good place to highlight it.
- The Lesser Dead by Christopher Buehlman
- Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson.
Prepare yourself for some gorgeous covers:
