A weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish
I think often there is this tendency when it comes to gifts to desperately want new and exciting things. And I know my family doesn't like getting me books that I have already read, but like I want books that I loved but I don't have copies of. So in case my family gets a peak at this, these are the books I want you to buy for me that I have already read.
I seriously loved this book. I listened to the audiobook and I am so glad that I did because it was amazing. But the finished copies are gorgeous. They have this beautiful woodcut illustration. And I just want this beautiful book on my shelf next to my His Dark Materials books.
2.) Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhode Belleza - Buy It
Another book where I listened to the audiobook. It's one of my favorite debuts of the year and I would really love to own a copy. Plus I think it would look amazing on my shelf because I like the cover a lot. Plus I'm trying to decide if I want to buy the sequel or get the audio
3.) The Empress by S.J. Kincaid - Buy It
I actually ordered a copy of this book but after I moved I forgot to change my address so they sent the book to my old address. And I didn't want to order another copy. So I hope whoever moved into my apartment likes it along with two Ipsy bags.
4.) Carry On by Rainbow Rowell - Buy It
I mean, I already own a copy of this book but I am OBSESSED with the paperback. It has the most beautiful illustration by Kevin Wada and I cannot with how amazing Baz looks. I mean Simon too but mostly Baz. I want it!
I really love the redesigned covers for this series. They're super dark and look much more like the historical horror that it is. I am not the kind of person who needs my covers to match but I kind of want them to match Before the Devil Breaks You because I love the redesigns.
6.) The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh - Buy It
I actually have an ARC from this book but I want a finished copy to match my copy of The Rose and the Dagger. And frankly I would even take the original paperback which has that badass image of Shazi looking all amazing.
7.) The Skylighter by Becky Wallace- Buy It
Another book that I have an ARC for that I want a finish copy for because it would match the series. Plus honestly, I really like this series and I want a copy of The Skylighter on my favorites shelf.
I have a physical ARC for the second book in the series which usually is enough for me, but I think the design of these so much that I want a finished copy. Plus I only have an e-ARC of the third book and I want that pretty cover as well.
9.) Retribution Rails by Erin Bowman - Buy It
I have an e-ARC for this book but I love the cover so much and I want a finished copy. I have a physical ARC of Vengeance Road and a copy of that would be great as well but like I NEED this one because it's so pretty.
I have a physical ARC of this book as well but some of the graphics are not complete. It would be great to have the copy with all the deaths because I know a few of the people listed. Plus I want the drawings that Marie Lu did!
11.) Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo - Buy It
I have a physical ARC of this one as well but it is Leigh Bardugo and Wonder Woman. I want a finished copy so I can add it to my self and support Leigh at the same time.
12.) A Darker Shade of Magic: Collectors Edition by Victoria Schwab - Buy It
I am not usually one of those people who need special editions and multiple copies of different books. But I love this series and I want the collectors edition because it has that gorgeous design by Crini under the jacket!
There you have it. All the books I have read which I don't have copies of but am hoping to get copies of this Christmas. What books made your list. Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!
