Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Fall 2021 To-read List

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: : Books on My Fall 2021 To-read List

1.) „Felix Ever After“ by Kacen Callender

48849624. sy475

I put „Felix Ever After“ on my September TBR and I intend to start it next week. I’ve been looking forward to read this for ages and I’m so glad my library had it in its shelves! It’s one of the few books I know about that actually have a transgender MC so I’m very excited to read Felix’s story. Also I’m absolutley in love with the cover! It’s so lively and realistically unapologetic!

2.) „Ninth House“ by Leigh Bardugo

52092876. sx318 sy475

To be honest I started this yesterday and I’m soo ready to read „Ninth House“! I’ve never read dark academia before and I heard that a lot of people would place this book in the genre. So far I’ve loved every book I read from Leigh so I’m pretty certain I’ll enjoy this one as well. It might be darker than the others but I’m definitely ready to explore this darker side of Leigh’s writing! 😉

3.) „Railhead“ by Philip Reeve

23532981

The Yoongi to my V spoke so much about this series that I couldn’t help but get curious about it. So when I recently discovered that my library actually has „Railhead“ I just couldn’t resist to borrow it. *lol* I’m sure Sabrina waited for me to read this ever since I spoke about it in my last library haul video on my BookTube channel! So yep, it’s autumn and I’m finally going to tackle this. XD

4.) „Rebel“ by Marie Lu

42121526

So I recently finished to read the Legend trilogy! And after THAT kind of ending I knew I couldn’t let it stand like that! I mean ARGHAADKLFASFJSAKDJS! Marie Lu always kills me with her endings and I just needed more after the finale of „Champion“. Thankfully I stumbled upon this in my library and I have every intention to read it and to hopefully get an ending I can live with. *lol*

5.) „The Gravity of Us“ by Phil Stamper

44281034

„The Gravity of Us“ has been on my radar for quite a while and the idea of a LGBTQ+ book that also tackles the topic of spacetravel is just too intriguing to let it go unnoticed! XD I already love the concept of this and I’m very curious how this is going to play out. Guess I’ll find out this autumn! *lol*

6.) „My Dark Vanessa“ by Kate Elizabeth Russell

55820574. sy475

Now here’s a book that doesn’t only have an intriguing topic but also a very serious one and I’m sure to read this will be tough. Still, I really want to know what’s all the fuss about. A lot of people said that it wasn’t their cup of tea and others said that „My Dark Vanessa“ was hard to read but that the way the story was told is brilliant. So yeah, the controversial opinions about it made me curious which caused this to land on my TBR. You know I can’t resist controversial books. *lol*

7.) „The Guest List“ by Lucy Foley

51933429

I really don’t know much about this book except of that it plays on an island and that it’s about a wedding. Oh yes, and that it is a mystery thriller. XD So I guess it’s fair to say that I know next to nothing about „The Guest List“. It was a goodreads choice winner of 2020 though and lots of people spoke about it back then. For me that’s enough reason to give it a try as a Halloween read! 😉

8.) „Mexican Gothic“ by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

53152636. sy475

And here comes my second Halloween read for this year. This entire book gives me a haunted house and cursed family vibe and I don’t know if you already know this about me, but I LOVE vibes like that! *lol* I’m the first one to read a book about a house with millions of hidden doors and even more hidden secrets about its owners. XD So yep, this is going to be fun. Hopefully.

9.) „Heartstopper: Volume Three“ by Alice Oseman

43449920. sy475

After all the darkness (or gloom and doom if you want to call it like that *lol*) I need something light and nothing is better than Alice Oseman’s „Heartstopper“! My library recently got volume three and of course I had to borrow it. I’m really looking forward to be reunited with Nick and Charlie! Because those two boys are precious!!! ❤ (Plus: The entire cast of „Heartstopper“ is amazing!!)

10.) „Love, Creekwood“ by Becky Albertalli

53239539. sy475

I wanted to read this for what feels like a lifetime and this autumn I finally decided to go for it! I need more of Simon and Blue and I’m really curious what happened after the two former books in the Simonverse! I guess this will be some sort of epilogue that will hopefully give me all the fluffy feels and will make me very happy. No high expectations and no pressure. Really, Becky! *lol*

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which books are on your fall TBR and do we have some in common? Do you have special books you want to read for Halloween and if yes, are they very creepy? As you all know I’m a scaredy fox and I’m always looking for nice horror books that aren’t too heavy. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wish I Could Read Again for the First Time

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Books I Wish I Could Read Again for the First Time (Oh where to start?! *lol*)

1.) „Harry Potter“ series by J.K. Rowling

22844191. sy475

Ahh to be 11 years old and to discover Harry Potter all over again. It would be so amazing to read this series for the very first time. Especially because now I could read all seven books without having to wait for the next instalment. I swear the wait for the next book was always so excruciating. Alone for that I envy everyone who is just discovering the series and reading it for the very first time. *lol*

2.) „The Raven Cycle“ Series by Maggie Stiefvater

17347389 I just love, love, love, love and once again love this series!!! It has my heart and my soul and I will never get tired of speaking about „The Raven Cycle“. I just love all the four raven boys and Blue to bits and pieces! So yes, to discover this series all over again would be so amazing! To feel all the feels for the very first time. Ahh! I can’t! XD I’d so love to experience it all over again. ❤

3.) „All for the Game“ Series by Nora Sakavic

17259690 I just finished the second book „The Raven King“ and I’m already at the point where I say that I would like to read it for the very first time. I guess that says enough about how great this series is and also about how addicted I got to it. *lol* I can’t believe I’m so invested in the Foxes but ARGH!!! Andrew Minyard and Neil Josten are my precious babies and I just want to hug them and wrap them into a cozy and warm blanket! I don’t know what it is about this series but I AM HOOKED!

4.) „Venery“ Series by Suanne Laqueur

36285077. sx318 When I stumbled upon Suanne’s series I never thought I would get so attached to it. Like OMG! This series totally blew me away and Javier Landes, Alex Penda and Steffen Finch will always have a special place in my heart! Needless to say I would love to read this series all over again. Suanne’s writing style is so damn amazing! If you don’t know her books already: Do yourself a favour and read this series for the very first time! And don’t forget to tell me, because I want to relive it vicariously through you. ;-P

5.) Basically all of Rick Riordan’s books I already read! *lol*

28187 I only discovered Uncle Ricks books about 2 years or so ago, but by now I read almost all of them and I enjoyed them immensely! So believe me when I say that I would love to read every single one of them for the very first time. Percy, Nico, Annabeth, Hazel, Leo and basically everyone in this series is so precious! ❤

6.) „The Song of Achilles“ by Madeline Miller

13516154 Okay, I probably would die all over again if I would read this for the very first time but quite honestly: It would be so worth it! I would gladly cry my eyes out if I could experience this for the very first time again. XD Masochistic much? Yes, but this book is a masterpiece and if you haven’t read it yet: What are you waiting for?! Patroclus and Achilles! T_T I’m crying once again. So beautiful and bittersweet!

7.) „The Name of the Wind“ by Patrick Rothfuss

186074 And here comes another masterpiece that I loved more than I thought I would. Kvothe is basically my kryptonite. A broken boy that is intelligent, a musician and to top it all off even a redhead! *lol* It’s like Patrick Rothfuss just wanted to see how hard I could fall for a fictional character. Well, Patrick you succeeded, I’d love to fall in love with Kvothe and his story all over again. XD

8.) „Carry On“ by Rainbow Rowell

32768522 Simon and Baz!! Baz and Simon!!! Oh gods, to see them fall in love for the very first time! I had so much fun reading this and „Carry On“ is still a book I love to get back to every once in a while. I already said it and I’ll say it once again: I fall asleep cuddling this book! *lol* It’s such a comfort read and to think of those two always makes me happy! =)) They are definitely one of my favourite m/m OTPs and I’ll probably recommend this book until the day I die. 😉

9.) „Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda“ by Becky Abertalli

19547856 I remember reading this for the very first time and not being able to put it down. I wanted to read this slowly and I had every intention to take notes when I read it. But the book obviously had other plans because I just couldn’t stop reading! Before I even knew it I was already halfway through the book and just wanted to know how Simon’s story ends. And of course if he gets the man! *lol* Also Simon is so damn relatable!! Love this boy so much! ❤

10.) „Shatter Me“ Trilogy by Tahereh Mafi

13455782 Mhmm… *deep sigh* To fall in love with Aaron Warner for the very first time! To discover Tahereh Mafi’s beautiful writing style all over again. This would be amazing! I was in love the moment I started to read this book and I think this will never change. Everyone who’s able to read this series for the very first time is very lucky, indeed!

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which books would you love to read for the very first time and do we have some in common? Can you recommend me some books that would be amazing to read? And if yes do you want to relive them vicariously through me? *lol*

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Read In One Sitting

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: : Books I Read In One Sitting (or would have if I had the time)

Ohhh, this is going to be fun! Also just 10 books and series? Oh gosh! This is going to be tough, I read so many books that would fall into this category. Okay, let’s see what will pop into my mind first. XD

1.) Lord of the Rings by. J.R.R. Tolkien

727798

I got the entire trilogy for Christmas when I was 13 years old and I read all three books in one week. *lol* I was basically glued to the pages and only stopped reading when I needed to eat something, had to go to the toilet or had to sleep. My family was laughing so much because they couldn’t understand my obsession. XD Looking at it in retrospective I think LotR was my epic fantasy awakening. *lol*

2.) Harry Potter by J.K Rowling

72193. sx318 sy475

Okay, I think everyone who was ever a Harry Potter fan read those books in one sitting, right? I mean whenever the next one came out my family and friends knew that they couldn’t disturb me for the next couple of hours. I just had to read them really fast and I gobbled them up like nobody’s business. Which constantly led to a book hangover, because I had to wait another year or two for the next book to come out! Fun times. *lol*

3.) A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

17927395. sy475

I still remember the spring in which I started to read this series and I never regretted it. ACOTAR was the first Sarah J. Maas book I ever read and it got me totally hooked. I loved everything about the first book then went through the masterpiece that is book two and finally reached the ending after finishing the last page of ACOWAR. What a journey! ❤

4.) The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic

17259690

„The Foxhole Court“ is one of the books that totally caught me by surprise. A lot of my favourite bloggers and reviewers talked about it but I still didn’t get the hype. Well, at least not until I picked it up and immediately got hooked! *lol* Like seriously!!! There’s something about this story that made it impossible to let go of this book. I was OBSESSED with Neil and Andrew and I still am!!! XD Truth be told, I just started to read the second book and I don’t think I’m ready for this kind of obsession but you know… I just NEED to know! ;-P

5.) The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

17347389

Rarely did a series touch me as much as „The Raven Cycle“! I lived and breathed this series and for a couple of months it was the only thing I could think of! Yes, I was THAT besotted with it. Still am if I’m honest. ;-P There’s just something about all the characters and the magic of this series that got me totally addicted. But honestly, I wouldn’t want to have it any other way. The Raven Boys will always be in my heart! ❤

6.) Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat

22571663

I still remember the first time I read this series. Back then I was still in the closet and to read this felt like some sort of forbidden guilty pleasure. It was basically the first m/m book/series I ever read and probably not the best start for someone who’s still in the closet but I didn’t mind. Haha! I guess to read this series was sort of liberating and after the cuteness of book 2 and 3 I was totally excited about it. (Book one is a rough start but it only gets better with book 2!) I think in some way this series gave me the strength to come out and the next time I read it, I did it openly without hiding it anymore. =)

7.) The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

23395680. sy475

Ha! Everyone who ever read this series knows how addicting it is. *lol* Like you start with the first book and think: Oh the formatting is kinda weird, but okay?! And before you even know it you’re right smack in the middle of the plot and bite your fingernails because you just NEED to know how it continues!! Been there, done that, got the freaking t-shirt and I’ve been wearing it proudly ever since! Haha! ;-P

8.) Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

19547856

Ahhh Simon! This book was so full of cuteness that I just couldn’t put it down. I could relate to Simon so much and his conversations with Blue kept me glued to the pages. I remember wanting to read this slowly but before I even knew it I was halfway through the book and spammed the feeds of my goodreads friends with updates! *lol* My last update of this book was literally: „OMG! I can’t stop to read this book! I need to know!!!“ So I guess that says it all! XD

9.) The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer

41865

„Twiligt“ is an „old“ series or well, relatively old if you consider the fact that the first book was published in 2005. So this is actually one of those series I read in one go! It was summer, my sister and her bf were on a holiday and I had their entire flat to myself. Needless to say that I locked myself up in their flat with food and other supplies and didn’t come out before I had finished the entire series. *lol*  I was 20 back then… ahh I feel old now! >_< Haha!

10.) Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

13455782

„Shatter Me“ is one of those series I only discovered after joining goodreads but I’m really so glad that I did! XD I loved this series to bits and pieces and the writing style as well as the love story totally blew me away! I still want a bf like Aaron Warner and I think this will never change. ❤ I rushed through the entire series in about 2 weeks and this even though I could only read it when my kid was sleeping. *lol* So that should say it all. 😉

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Do we have some books in common? And if yes, did you rush through them as well? Can you recommend me a book that will glue me to its pages?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Wishes – V’s Wishful Thinking

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Bookish Wishes (My birthday is today, so celebrate with me by granting the wishes of your friends! This is a popular thing to do on Twitter, but today we’re blog hopping. List the top 10 books you’d love to own and include a link to a wishlist so that people can grant your wish. Make sure you link your wishlist to your mailing address [here’s how to do it on Amazon] or include the email address associated with your ereader so people know how to get the book to you. After you post, jump around the Linky and grant a wish or two if you’d like. Don’t feel obligated!)

V’s Wishful Thinking: 

1.) The Dragon Republic – R.F Kuang

41118857. sy475

I read „The Poppy War“ in 2019 and it took me 2 years to get over it. So yeah, I’m finally ready to read „The Dragon Republic“ and I seriously hope I won’t be thrown by it for another two years. XD

2.) The Priory of the Orange Tree – Samantha Shannon

40275288. sy475

I recently dicovered that this isn’t just a super huge book but also features a f/f relationship which makes this a perfect wish for my kindle! ❤ I don’t think I want to carry a physical copy of those 848 pages around with me. *lol*

3.) Cemetery Boys – Aiden Thomas

52339313. sy475

I’ve been dying to read this book and I still didn’t get my hands on a copy! My library doesn’t have it and my personal bookshelves are already kinda full so to read it on my e-reader would be awesome. =) 

4.) The Fascinators – Andrew Eliopulos

48552059. sy475

This book had all my attention the moment it was mentioned it’s for fans of Maggie Stiefvater and Rainbow Rowell. XD A lot of reviewers enjoyed it and others didn’t so I’m very curious if it will be for me. I guess the only way to find out is by finally reading it. 

5.) One Last Stop – Casey McQuiston

55072663. sy475

And here I go with another f/f book and it even has some sort of time travel element in it! Ever since I read „Red, White & Royal Blue“ I’ve become a huge fan of Casey McQuiston and can’t wait to see what she did with this story! ❤

6.) A Scarcity of Condors – Suanne Laqueur

38089560. sy475

This is book three of Suanne’s „Venery“ series and I sooo want to get my fingers on it! *lol* So far I’ve devoured the other two books and I’m pretty sure this one is going to be amazing too! I really can’t wait to read this! 

7.) Can’t Take That Away – Steven Salvatore

56415353. sy475

My list is full of LGBTQ+ books and yep, this is another one of them! ;-P But seriously how could I say „no“ to this? It has a genderqueer MC and there’s a musical trope too! How could I ever resist this? =) 

8.) The Wise Man’s Fear – Patrick Rothfuss

1215032

I’ve waited years for „The Doors of Stone“ to come out but as it seems this will never happen so I figured I might as well finish reading the second book and therefore finish reading the series. *lol* If you read this Pat: WHY????? What did we ever do to deserve this?!! T_T

9.) Legendary – Stephanie Garber

36329818

I recently finished „Caraval“ and I’m so damn curious how this series is going to continue! Also I’ve been told that Legend and Tella are the MCs in here and I’m so ready to read more about those two! So of course this landed right on my „V’s Wishful Thinking“ list! 😉 

10.) The Sword of Kaigen – M.L. Wang

41886271

So many people told me that this is amazing and I’ve become more and more intrigued by all those reviews! *lol* I have absolutely no idea what it is about though. All I know is that „The Sword of Kaigen“ is fantasy but for me that’s already enough! After all I love myself a good fantasy series every once in a while. XD

Rankenzeile

 

So what about you? Do we have some bookish wishes in common? Did you already read some of the books that are on my wishlist? And if yes, did you enjoy them? What are your bookish wishes?

Talk to me and let me know! 

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

I’ll be off too look at other bookish wishes now and maybe I’ll even grant some of them! ;-P

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Great Book Quotes

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is:  Book Quotes that Fit X Theme (Pick any theme you want, i.e., motivational quotes, romantic dialogues, hunger-inducing quotes, quotes that fill you with hope, quotes on defeating adversity, quotes that present strong emotions, healing, etc. and then select quotes from books that fit that theme.)

Okay, I decided to go for great book quotes here because there are so many and I love quotes no matter if they are serious or funny! ;-P They are just great quotes and fit no particular theme though. So I guess you might say this is my somewhat own spin on this topic. *lol*

1.) “The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to land true.” – „Six of Crows“ by Leigh Bardugo

23437156

I remember reading „Six of Crows“ for the very first time and I was so thrilled by all the amazing banter and the great quotes. Leigh Bardugo wrote a masterpiece with this duology (that’s going to be a trilogy at some point!) and some of the quotes she came up with are epic and will be remembered for ages! Also when I saw that they used some of the quotes as the titles for the episodes of the „Shadow and Bone“ Netflix series I was totally over the moon! ❤

2.) “Kiss me again,” he says, drunk and foolish. “Kiss me until I am sick of it.” – „The Wicked King“ by Holly Black

26032887. sy475

Okay, but seriously, Cardan’s quotes in this series and his attitude are one of a kind and I just couldn’t get enough of this faerie! I’m such a sucker for Cardan and when I wrote my „The Wicked King“ review I said he could easily be the 8th member of BTS. *lol* Big mistake! Now I can’t unthink it anymore and whenever I picture Cardan in my mind I see V now. Haha! Honestly though! Tae when he wears those golden contact lenses and has dark hair?! *screams in Cardan*

3.) ”War doesn’t determine who’s right. War determines who remains.” – „The Poppy War“ by R.F. Kuang

35068705

There are so many amazing quotes in „The Poppy War“ it’s really hard to pick just one, but after thinking about it for a while I decided to go with this one. It’s very true and when I read it in the book this really hit me. For me „The Poppy War“ was quite a challenging book because at some points I actually had to put it aside in order to digest what I read. Not gonna lie, I’m still not over a lot of the things that happened in here and I’m also still working on finding the courage to read book two.

4.) ”Fear was Can’t.
Fear was Won’t.
But fear wasn’t ever a choice.” – „Darkdawn“ by Jay Kristoff

52783987. sy475

Fear is a recurring topic in „The Nevernight Chronicles“ and it’s like a thread that’s running through the entire trilogy. There’s a lot of discussion about fear and the different shades it can come in, as well as how it motivates, paralyzes or inhibits us and guides our actions. I always like things like this in my books so I really enjoyed that Jay Kristoff addressed this as a topic in his books.

5.) “The trouble with denial is that when the truth comes, you aren’t ready.” – „We Are Okay“ by Nina LaCour

28243032

This was one of the few grief reps I had the pleasure to read and I really liked it. A LOT! Nina LaCour is such a skilled writer and she conveys the different emotions of grief so well. Plus everything she wrote in here is true and that really hit me in the feels. If you’re interested in a good grief rep and haven’t read this book yet I can totally recommend it!

6.) ”Asking to hold a musician’s instrument is roughly similar to asking to kiss a man’s wife. Nonmusicians don’t understand. An instrument is like a companion and a lover.“ – „The Name of the Wind“ by Patrick Rothfuss

186074

And here we go with another book that’s full of great quotes! Today I decided to chose the one about music instruments because it resonated so much with me when I read it. *lol* I feel exactly the same way about my bass and guitar and whenever someone wants to touch them I’ve to suppress the urge to clutch them. XD Also I agree: an instrument is really like a companion and a lover. *lol*

7.) ”My words are unerring tools of destruction, and I’ve come unequipped with the ability to disarm them.“ – „The Raven Boys“ by Maggie Stiefvater

17675462. sy475

I feel this quote on so many levels it’s not normal anymore. There are often times in my life when I feel exactly the same way Gansey feels while he says that. Sometimes we just can’t seem to be able to choose the right words and no matter how much we try, they still come out wrong and we’re misunderstood. I love this quote so much and I think about it often so it definitely had to land in here! XD

8.) ”Your love is worthless. It’s your hate I need.” – „King of the Dark“ by Ariana Nash

54359996. sy475

Vasili’s words are so ruthless and cruel, yet this quote has some unexplainable allure for me. *lol* I can’t really describe it but something resonated with me when I read it. Maybe it’s because I’m a person that believes that love can conquer everything and to hear that he doesn’t want love but hate instead is oddly fascinating? It implies that hate is the stronger emotion, but I think Vasili will stand corrected by the end of that trilogy. Or well, at least I hope he will. *lol*

9.) ”Listen and learn it, learn to tell it, and tell it to teach it.” – „A Charm of Finches“ by Suanne Laqueur

33299920. sx318

I think this is a great motto to live by and just one of the many reasons why I loved „A Charm of Finches“ so much! This book is really great and it tackles so many tough topics I had to cry mulitple times while I read it. Yet at the same time it’s one of the most beautiful books I ever read as well. Suanne!!! Damn why do you write such great books? XD My emotions are still all over the place!

10.) ”Don’t let him escape!” said Mum. “This could be your only chance at securing a spouse!” – „Radio Silence“ by Alice Oseman

41827561. sy475

I had to laugh so hard when I read this in „Radio Silence“! Frances’s mother was such a great character and I really love that parents are always an important part in Alice Oseman’s books. Unlike in other YA books they actually play an active role in their childrens lives and I think we definitely need more reps like that!

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which kind of quote theme did you chose for this „Top Ten Tuesday“ topic? Did you like the ones I chose and if yes which one was your favourite? Did you read any of the books I mentioned and did you enjoy them too? Are you planning to read some of them?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always try to stay healthy and safe!

Top Ten Tuesday: Animals from Books

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Animals from Books (these could be mythical, real, main characters, sidekicks, companions/pets, shifters, etc.) (Submitted by Paige @paigesquared and Jennifer Y. @ Never Too Many to Read)

Okay, I think I’ll go with creatures and animals here because some of the characters I came up with are actually no animals. *lol*

1.) Syrinx from „Crescent City“ by Sarah J. Maas

44778083

Who wouldn’t want to have their own chimera as a pet? I mean Syrinx is so damn adorable and I just wanted to cuddle him whenever he appeared in a scene. I can imagine sitting down on my sofa at night and stroking his fur. *lol* I bet this would be soothing af! XD And exactly what I’d need after a long day at work. Everyone should have a Syrinx!

2.) Buckbeak from „Harry Potter“ by J.K. Rowling

BuckBeak (@FlyingBirdBeaky) | Twitter

Buckbeak was one of the magical creatures I loved the most when I read Harry Potter! (The dragons in book four though!! *lol*) Hippogriffs are such intriguing creatures and I love that you can only ride them when they approve of you. Manners are everything and those creatures have them down to a T. Also those soft feathers! Ahh to fly on Buckbeak must be amazing!

3.) Abraxos from „Throne of Glass“ by Sarah J. Maas

29559052. sy475

Abraxos is the best wyvern you will ever find! He has a heart of gold and even though he looks like a big bad dragon he loves flowers and is super soft! Seriously! I loved Abraxos so damn much! Manon was totally soft for him too and I lived and breathed for their friendship! ❤ I want an Abraxos as well! Where can I get one?! XD

4.) Nighteyes from „The Farseer Trilogy“ by Robin Hobb

77198

I always wanted to befriend a wolf and the bond between Fitz and Nighteyes is nothing but amazing! ❤ Nighteyes humour and sarcasm were everything and I really wish I would have a friend like him too! Fitz could always count on him and Nighteyes was the best companion anyone could wish for. Plus his playful side was totally amusing!

5.) The Whispering Skull from „Lockwood & Co“ by Jonathan Stroud

14059024

Yes, I admit it: I’m a fan of the whispering skull! Haha! But how couldn’t I be? That guy… erm… that skull is awesome! I had to laugh so hard whenever he made one of his sarcastic remarks and he really grew on me throughout the entire series! His love-hate relationship with Lucy was just great! *lol* And the moment when it was revealed who he was!!! Ahhh!! Not going to spoil here! Read the series and find out for yourself! ;-P

6.) Mr. Kindly from „The Nevernight Chronicles“ by Jay Kristoff

52783987. sy475

Quite honestly the not-cat is probably one of the best things Jay Kristoff ever invented. *lol* Well, okay AIDEN IS the best thing he ever invented but Mr. Kindly definitely comes in second. XD Now that I write this I just realized that I seem to have a weakness for sarcastic characters because Mr. Kindly most definitely has that character trait as well. Haha! Loved his battle of words with Eclipse and Mia. They were highly entertaining and Mr. Kindly is one of a kind! Moreover he could swallow my fears and if that wouldn’t come in handy then I don’t know! ;-P

7.) Arion from „The Heroes of Olympus“ by Rick Riordan

15714024

There are a lot of things that make Arion sort of special! For one he can run faster than the wind. His diet includes eating gold (which would be pretty expensive on the longrun, but I guess that’s exactly the reason why he’s sticking around Hazel) and he curses like a sailor! *LOL* What’s not to love??!!! I really want a horse like Arion now! I couldn’t afford to feed him though. XD

8.) The Suriel from „A Court of Thorns and Roses“ by Sarah J. Maas

16096824. sy475

I ABSOLUTELY loved the Suriel! I know some people might thing that’s crazy but the Suriel was legit one of the best characters in the ACOTAR series! It might have only been a side character and it might have looked creepy but it was amazing and had such a great personality! It was wise and kind of soft for Feyre and I lived for it! *lol* One of the most underrated side-characters ever! ❤

9.) Carver from „Deadmarsh Fey“ by Melika Dannese Hick

39889091. sy475

It’s been a while I read Melika’s book but Carver that little devilish fiend is still on my mind! And just in case you wondered: Yes, Carver is the faerie in the back that touches the boy’s shoulder! *lol* „Deadmarsh Fey“ was one of the best faerie books I ever read because it didn’t only hold to the legends and myths but also the atmosphere of the old house in the moor was just great! It had the right amount of spooky and Carver was such a nice villain! His biting banter with Roger was the best!

10.) Chainsaw from „The Raven Cycle“ by Maggie Stiefvater

20257177

And last but not least: Chainsaw from TRC! Of course Chainsaw made it on my list because Chainsaw is no normal raven but also a very special creature. She’s super intelligent and she can communicate with Ronan so that’s pretty amazing! I want a Chainsaw too! (Also the name!!! Haha! I love that Ronan named her Chainsaw!)

So what about you? Did you read the same books and do you like any of the bookish pets, creatures and side characters I mentioned? What are your favourite bookish animals from books?

Top Ten Tuesday: Places In Books I’d Love to Live

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Places In Books I’d Love to Live

Ahh what an amazing topic!!! ❤ This is going to be fun!

1.) Hogwarts – Harry Potter

So teuer ist das erste Schuljahr in Hogwarts

Okay, but honestly who wouldn’t want to live in Hogwarts? *lol* I’m still waiting for my letter, because this is THE SCHOOL for me! All the magic and the fact that this castle always changes, not to mention that they teach magic in there! I SO want to live in one of those Gryffindor dorm rooms and I want to eat the amazing food! ❤

2.) Velaris – A Court of Thorns and Roses

I think everyone who read ACOTAR fell in love with this city! It sounds so beautiful and great, I’d love to wander through the streets and to eat in one of all those intriguing restaurants. The fact that it’s at the sea and apparently has a warm climate only makes this even more appealing! Hey Lucien, can I move into that apartment with you? *lol*

3.) Cabeswater/Monmouth Manufacturing/The Barns – The Raven Cycle

LIVIN' LIKE A PLAYER — YA LIT MEME: Six Places. ↳ THE RAVEN CYCLE;...

Is there a more magical and enchanting place than Cabeswater? I don’t think so! It sounds like such a great place to be and to be honest I wouldn’t mind staying at any of the many places that are mentioned in „The Raven Cycle“. No matter if it’s Monmouth Manufacturing (who wouldn’t want to live in an old factory building and be roomies with the Raven Boys?), The Barns (gosh all the awesome things Ronan created!!!) or 300 Fox Way (Blue’s funny and crazy psychic family!) all those locations would be amazing! ❤

4.) The London Insitute – Shadowhunter Series

I love London and I’m a huge fan of the Shadowhunter Series. 😀 So there are already two good reasons why I’d want to live in the London Institute.  😉 Aside from that it’s also a place with a lot of history and charm. Also let’s not forget that Tessa, Will and Jem and all their friends and their entire family lived there. Just to be able to pick up one of Wills old books with his handwritten notes in it would already be so satisfying. *lol*

5.) The Harbour – The Starless Sea

I’m afraid Erin Morgenstern ruined me with her books! *lol* The mere idea of „The Harbour“ is such a great one that I wish I could actually live there. I mean seriously! It was basically described as some sort of subwaystation with millions of books and thousands of different rooms that all lead somewhere! You never know where you’ll get once you open one of those doors and a curious fox like me probably could get lost in there. Also the cozy atmosphere! Lots of cats and a fireplace! Ahh where is my door to the harbour? XD

6.) Jav & Stef’s flat – A Charm of Finches

This is a totally selfish choice because I love Jav and Stef and their home sounded so warm and comfortable! If I’d be friends with them I’d just crash on their couch and watch those two lovebirds being all sweet while they cook dinner! *lol* And well, of course I’d eat dinner with them too because I’m sure it would be delicous! XD

7.) The Night Circus

And here we go with another Erin Morgenstern book! 😉 The Night Circus was such a great book and I was totally mesmerized by its beauty. The details Erin wrote out for every single tent and it’s purpose, the magic of a wandering circus, the sweets and all the excitement. Ahh to be a part of this and to live with the circus would be so amazing! 😀

8.) Elfhame – The Folk of the Air

I suppose this choice is purely based on homesickness. *lol* But I AM a faerie after all and Elfhame is sort of … well, my home. ;-P I miss those islands and the green hill. And of course I miss Jude and Cardan. XD It’s about time I read the last book! Anyway! Revels, dancing, eating, cavorting, flirting, being in the company of beautiful faeries, trying not to fall for a bargain you’ll regret, watching your back so no one will stab you… Ahh, home sweet home! What’s not to love? *lol*

9.) Camp Half-Blood – Percy Jackson

After reading so many Percy Jackson books I can say that to live at Camp Half-Blood sounds like fun. XD I have no idea in which cabin I’d be sorted but as long as I’d be with my half-siblings it would be okay. 😀 To sit around the campfire at night and to sing songs like „This Land is Mino’s Land“ sounds like a good time, especially after a long day that was full of capture the flag. *lol*

10.) Skarmouth – The Scorpio Races

Okay, admittedly for most people this island wouldn’t be appealing but for me it somehow is? I dunno why, but Maggie Stiefvater wrote this place so well that I could feel the cold wind on my skin and smell the salty ocean breeze! The most interesting thing about Skarmouth are the water horses though! Such beautiful, powerful and frightenting creatures! ❤ I’d love to live on that island just to see them!

Rankenzeile

Did you read any of the books I mentioned and did you fall in love with those places too? At which bookish places would you love to live and why? Do we have some in common? Is there a bookish place I should definitely read about?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always try to stay healthy and safe!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Made Me Laugh Out Loud

Dieses Bild hat ein leeres alt-Attribut; sein Dateiname ist ttt-new.png.

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Books That Made Me Laugh Out Loud (Claire @ Book Lovers Pizza)

I can already tell that to find such books is going to be tough. *lol* I read way too many serious books and definitely should go for more fun reads. XD

1.) Carry On – Rainbow Rowell

32768522

I remember sitting in the train while I read this and earning a lot of irritated glances and raised eyebrows when I burst out laughing. *lol* But seriously this book made me laugh so hard sometimes. Baz and Simon were just too hilarious and when I wasn’t laughing about their antics I was grinning like a Cheshire Cat because they were so adorable and cute. XD No wonder this book became one of my all time favourites! If you want to read my full review you can do it here!

2.) Red, White & Royal Blue – Casey McQuiston

41150487. sy475

Ahhh! „Red, White & Royal Blue“ was such a revelation! I loved this book to bits and pieces and it made me laugh quite a lot! When I went into this I already knew that a lot of people loved it but I wasn’t prepared for all the serious topics this tackled. The world in RWARB is such an open-minded and great world and I really wish things would be like that in real life too. So in some way to read about Alex’s and Henry’s relationship gave me hope and I’m convinced we can reach this kind of contentment and equality one day. If you’re interested in reading my full review just follow the link!

3.) The Hating Game – Sally Thorne

25883848. sy475

I had so much fun reading this because Lucy and Josh were amazing! They didn’t give each other an inch and their banter and battle of words was so damn amusing I can’t even! *lol* Boy, were they at each other’s throats! XD Their barbs were quite something and I couldn’t get enough of their witty altercations. I admit, I kinda lived and breathed for their little war. Haha! And of course I’m a sucker for the enemies-to-lovers trope, which made this an even more enjoyable read. There’s nothing better than people who are quick-witted and have a sharp tongue. ;-P

4.) Stephanie Plum Novels – Janet Evanovich

6853

Janet Evanovich’s books always make me laugh out loud, especially her Stephanie Plum novels! Stephanie is such an awesome MC and I love Grandma Mazur and Lula! *lol* Plus, Morelli as well as Ranger are both really fine men I certainly wouldn’t say „no“ to. XD Whenever I need a good laugh I’ll pick up this series and just dive right into the fun. I can really recommend it! ;-P

5.) Percy Jackson – Rick Riordan

28187

You just gotta love Percy’s sass and his defiance! Plus he’s super sarcastic and I love characters like that. 😉 This said, every single one of Uncle Rick’s books is highly entertaining and his humour is great! I might have been late to the party but I’ve read a lot of his books by now and so far I’ve enjoyed them all. So what are you waiting for? If you want to read something funny and great this is the right series for you! (And it’s extremely child-friendly too!)

6.) Six of Crows Doulogy – Leigh Bardugo

23437156

I think we can all agree that the conversations in this duology are iconic! ❤ In fact they are so iconic that I’m still looking for another series that reaches this level of awesomeness! The banter between the six MCs is hilarious and I’ve rarely come across a book that was as quote-worthy as SoC! If you ever find another book that comes even close to this: I’m ready for your rec! *lol* And just in case you want to read my super long reviews: You can read Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom by following the links!

7.) Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli

19547856

Ahh I just love this book! Simon is such a relatable MC and even though „Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda“ touches a lot of serious topics it’s still a fun read that had me smiling like crazy. Yes, sometimes I even had to laugh but mostly it’s just a feel-good book that makes you immensely happy and gives you all those papilionaceous feels! Look at me throwing around all those difficult words! Haha! (I’m typing this in the middle of the night btw and my brain is running on too little coffee to think clearly… which come to think of it explains everything about me, yet nothing at all. *lol*)

8.) Boyfriend Material – Alexis Hall

50225678

I requested this as an ARC from NetGalley and I was really happy I got approved for it! This was such a fun ride and Luc and Oliver had me laughing about their „fake-dating“ antics. Their conversation about being fake-boyfriends were hilarious and I’ll definitely watch out for Alexis Hall’s next book! If you’re looking for a short and diverting read this one’s for you. 😉

9.) The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue – Mackenzi Lee

29283884. sy475

Okay, if you have no idea what this book is about and who’s Monty you better get your hands on a copy and start to read now, because this was HILARIOUS!!! I swear Monty’s POV already had me dying of laughter when I was just a couple of pages into the book and it basically continued in that vein until I finished the book. If you love chaotic historical road trips that have just the right amount of adorable „awww“ moments, then you should definitely consider to give this a shot! 😉

10.) The Deal – Elle Kennedy

24920901

I know the cover is nice eye candy but don’t let it lead you astray. 😉 The content of this is great and some scenes had me wiping away tears of laughter. XD My dear friend Lia recommended me this book when I was in dire need of something funny and sexy and to say she hit the nail right on the head would be putting it more than just mildly. *lol* This said, I really enjoyed „The Deal“ and I’m looking forward to read the other books of this series too. (Apparently there are 3 more that all feature Garret’s friends and their own stories.)

Rankenzeile

Is it just me or do most of those fun reads actually have a comic like cover? *lol* Might be just my imagination but it’s interesting how comic covers kinda seem to take over the world. ;-P

Did you read any of the books I mentioned and did you laugh while reading them too? Do you have any hilarious book recommendations I just NEED to read? And are you curious about some of the books I wrote about?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always try to stay healthy and safe!

Top Ten Tuesday: New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2020

Dieses Bild hat ein leeres alt-Attribut; sein Dateiname ist ttt-new.png.

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2020 (If you didn’t read 10 new authors, that’s fine! Just do what you can.)

1.) Roshani Chokshi (The Gilded Wolves)

Quote: ”The world has a shit memory. It will never pay its debts unless you force its hand.”
39863498
 

I think Roshani was one of the first authors in 2020 that persuaded me to continue to read her books. When I started „The Gilded Wolves“ I expected it to go into the direction of „Six of Crows“ but it definitely turned out to be so much more than that. After reading the ending that left me reeling I’ve been dying to get my hands on a copy of „The Silvered Serpents“, but so far I didn’t get a chance to read it. (Not for lack of trying. *lol* I even requested and ARC but unfortunately wasn’t approved.) Well, I suppose I will wait until the third book comes out before I read TSS because rumour has it that it ends on a cliffhanger. So in order to spare myself a heartattack I’ll definitely finish this series in one go! ;-P

2.) Kerri Maniscalco (Stalking Jack the Ripper)

Quote: „Fear is a hungry beast. The more you feed it, the more it grows.“

28962906. sy475
 
I’ve heard so many good things about this series and got curious about Thomas Cresswell. (Especially after all the swooning from fans. *lol*) So I had to investigate and discovered that the first book was really enjoyable. Sure there could have been a better plot but all things considered this was a nice start into a new series. I’ll definitely read all the other books as well and „Kingdom of the Wicked“ is already on my Book List 2021. =) 
 

3.) Angie Thomas (The Hate U Give) 

Quote: „The truth casts a shadow over the kitchen – people like us in situations like this become hashtags, but they rarely get justice. I think we all wait for that one time though, that one time when it ends right.“
 
43819388. sy475
 
This was my first Angie Thomas book and certainly not my last! I already put „On the Come Up“ on my TBR pile and I can’t wait to read more of her other books. She’s such a great own voices author and she tackles super important topics. It’s always important to speak up against injustice and I think Angie is doing a great job with her books! So if you haven’t heard from her yet you better run to your library and borrow this book! 
 

4.) Frederik Backmann (Beartown)

Quote: „It doesn’t take a lot to be able to let go of your child. It takes everything.“

33413128. sy475
 
Up until last year I never read any of Backmann’s books and this was the first one I chose to tackle. And let me tell you this: Boy, that man can write! This book was exceptionally painful to read and had me in tears multiple times. Which is why I loved it so much but also the reason why I decided to read only one Backmann book per year. My heart definitely couldn’t take more than one of his heartbreaking books at a time. XD There are plenty of Backmann books out there and I’ll make sure to read them all. 
 

5.) Suanne Laqueur (Venery Series)

Quote: „They shared breath, poised on a shared edge, shaking all their separate pieces into one.“

29637128. sy475
 
I found this series through NetGalley because they were promoting the third book and gave away reading copies for the first. And I’m so glad I clicked that request button because otherwise I would have missed out on one of the best book series I ever read! XD Suanne is a master at capturing human nature and what it means to be alive and I consider it a privilege to be able to read her books! Funnily enough we’ve also become some sort of friends after I wrote updates about her books and she stalked them. *lol* (Hey there, Suanne! ;-P) So if you’ve never heard of her Venery Series and you love intricate stories with an LGBTQ+ rep: What are you waiting for?!! 
 

6.) Nora Sakavic (The Foxhole Court)

Quote: „Easy, easy.“ Andrew lifted his hands in a careless shrug. „Why bother? It’s a cruel world, right Neil? You wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t.“
„It’s not the world that’s cruel,“ Neil said. „It’s the people in it.“

 
17259690
 

I have no idea what it is about this book but I was obsessed with it right from the moment I started to read it! The only reason I haven’t begun to read book 2 and 3 by now is because I don’t want to rush through this series! I want to savour Andrew Minyard and Neil Josten and ahhhh I loved this so damn much. All those broken characters Nora Sakavic invented just tug at my heartstrings. ❤ Those characters are my kryptonite and I’m sooo going to read the rest of her series too! As far as I could see she only wrote this trilogy and another book named „Elysium“. So I really hope she’ll write more.

7.) Courtney Summers (Sadie)

Quote: „For some people, the future ahead is opportunity. For others, it’s only time you haven’t met and where I lived, it was only time. You don’t waste your breath trying to protect it. You just try to survive it until one day, you don’t.“

 
34810320. sy475
 
Courney Summers „Sadie“ was such a revelation! I never read any of her books (apparently there are quite a few) and this was the first one I picked up. And it was so, so good. The atmosphere in „Sadie“ was exceptionally haunting and eerie, the characters either broken or already close to their breaking point. To read this was… painful and I think I’ll never get over this book. If all of Courtney’s books are like that I’ll continue to read them but I’ll make sure only to read one every year as well. *lol* Some books you just have to digest! XD
 

8.) Stuart Turton (The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle)

Quote: „If this isn’t hell, the devil is surely taking notes.“

43242080
 
To read this was so much fun! I swear I never had as much fun solving a murder as I had while reading this book. „Murder on the Orient Express“ probably came pretty close but this also had a fiction element in it and I’m such a sucker for those! *lol* So yes, to piece this puzzle together caused my brain to go into overdrive. We all know that I love myself a good challenge and thrive when my braincells have to work though, so I actually enjoyed every second of it. ;-P Can I have more books like that, please? 
 

9.) Erin A. Craig (House of Salt and Sorrows)

Quote: ”The very delight of such an evening is being your complete self with a total stranger, don’t you think? Spilling your innermost thoughts – ones too dark and deep to ever speak in the light of day, confessing sins of passion and pleasure, maybe even misbehaving, and none of it matters, because if you don’t know who you’re toying with, then what’s the harm in it?”

39679076
 
„House of Salt and Sorrows“ would have made such a great Halloween read! It was really creepy and sometimes even gory and the old mansion by the sea made for such an intriguing setting! I wasn’t all too attached to the characters but the atmosphere and the mystery of this book were interesting enough to make up for it. If Erin A. Craig releases  her next book I’ll definitely be there to take a closer look! 😀
 

10.) Soman Chainani (School for Good and Evil)

Quote: ”Tonight she would be taken into the woods. Tonight she would begin a new life. Tonight she would live out her fairy tale.”

18089991
 
My dear friend Sabrina raved about this so often that I got really curious and I’m so glad I finally picked this series up when I found it in my library! „The School for Good and Evil“ was so much fun and even though it’s based on fairy tales it had such a unique spin that I couldn’t help but fall head over heels for this world and its characters! Agatha and Sophie are amazing and I really need to read the other books soon! Luckily Soman Chainani obviously wrote a lot of them so I doubt I’ll run out of reading material anytime soon. *lol*

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Hope Santa Brings

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Books I Hope Santa Brings (or the Christkind in my case ;P ) I’m pretty sure it will have to make an effort because some of them are quite hard to get! XD

P.S: In Austria the Christkind is bringing Christmas presents at the night of December 24th. And it’s basically baby Jesus who is an angel and delivers presents. Don’t ask me why our children believe into a little baby angel that delivers presents. *lol* And before you even think about how unrealistic that is, hold that thought and think about who Santa actually is. I suppose the idea of a bearded man who delivers presents by jumping on a slay that is pulled by reindeers is at least as unrealistic as our Christkind delivering them with magic. *lol* So I guess we’re even in the imagination department. ;-P Anywayyyy …. let’s do this! Kids are so adorable! ❤

1.) „The Silvered Serpents“ by Roshani Chokshi

52796733. sy475
 
I’ve been dying to read this book ever since I finished „The Gilded Wolves“ and even went as far as to get an account on NetGalley just to request an ARC. Which I obviously didn’t get or I wouldn’t hope the Christkind will bring this for Christmas! *lol* It’s about time I hold this book in my hands so please, Christkind! Could you finally get me a copy? Please?! *makes huge puppy eyes*
 

2.) „Cemetery Boys“ by Aiden Thomas

52339313. sy475
 
I’ve only heard good things about this book but I didn’t manage to buy it yet so I really hope I’ll find it under my Christmas tree! XD The story of „Cemetery Boys“ just sounds too intriguing. An LGBTQ+ rep and a ghost story including a romance?! I love such things! *lol* So yep, I definitely want this for Christmas! 😉
 

3.) „The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue“ by V.E. Schwab

51029834. sy475
 
This book has been all over my feed ever since the first ARCs went out to the blogging community and tell you what? I still have it on my feed! The hype didn’t die down yet and I just can’t wait to read this! Like seriously!!! V.E. Schwab is a queen and a story about a Faustian bargain is exactly the kind of tale I didn’t even know I craved for! ❤
 

4.) „Felix Ever After“ by Kacen Callender

48849624. sy475
 
And here we go with another book that seemingly everyone except of me has read: „Felix Ever After“! 😉 I really want to read this: BADLY, I may add! But of course my library doesn’t have it and if I’d buy every book I want to read my flat would overflow. *LOL* (Not to mention all the money it would cost. XD) So I rarely buy books and if the Christkind brings me this one I’ll be forever grateful! ❤
 

5.) „A Scarcity of Condors“ by Suanne Laqueur

38089560. sy475
 
I love Suanne and her books so much and I needed this like yesterday! 😉 Also it’s the last book in her Venery series and I just want this in my life! Suanne’s books always give me all the feels and I love them so damn much, I can’t even! XD So yep, if the Christkind brings me „A Scarcity of Condors“ it would be really appreciated!!! 
 

6.) „Any Way the Wind Blows“ by Rainbow Rowell

55602827. sy475
 
Okay, technically this comes out on July 6th 2021. *lol* So I suppose the Christkind would have to get pretty creative in order to get a copy for me! But I mean, it’s the Christkind after all and if it doesn’t manage to get a copy for me, well, then no one will. XD Maybe an ARC copy? It’s Simon and Baz!!! Baz and Simon! AHHHHH!!! Christkind you can do that, right? ;-P
 

7.) „Cold Iron Heart“ by Melissa Marr

52554863
 
Irial is one of the best characters ever and I was so glad to find out that this book is about him! ❤ So I definitely want to get this as a physical copy. I just love my cruel faerie king and I’ll always want more of him! Also this is a prequel to the „Wicked Lovely“ series and I might finally find out about how Irial was before he met all the others! I’m curious, guys!!!! 
 

8.) „The Extraordinaries“ by T.J. Klune

52380340. sx318 sy475
 
This book has a lot of things I love! For instance superheroes, fanfiction and two best friends! „The Extraordinaries“ sounds really great and since I already put it on „My Book List 2021“ I really hope that I’ll get it for Christmas! I’d love to spend my holidays with this gem of a book and considering all the high ratings it got, I’m sure that I’ll love it! 😀
 

9.) „Sticks & Stones“ by Abigail Roux

7314827
 
Now that is a really special wish and I’d love it if the Christkind would be able to give me this book. It’s not available at the moment, I can’t buy it anywhere and my library doesn’t have it as well. T_T I think the last time I checked you could buy an old copy of it on Amazon for about EUR 92,00 which is way TOO expensive. I mean it’s a soft cover copy, I could buy about 9 other books instead of that one copy. *lol* I’m just laughing because otherwise I’d be crying. T_T I really loved the first book of the series but as it seems I’ll never be able to continue with it… well at least not unless a Christmas miracle happens. >_<
 

10.) „The Core“ by Peter V. Brett

And here is my last book and another one I still didn’t manage to get into my greedy hands. I borrowed all four former books from my library but they still didn’t get „The Core“. I’ve been waiting for years for them to finally get this last book of the series but no such luck. Apparently no one gave it to them or they just didn’t bother to buy the last book. >_< (WHY, library?! Why?) My library moves in mysterious ways… so yes, I’d really appreciate it if the Christkind would place this under my Christmas tree. *lol*

What about you? Which kind of books do you hope Santa will bring to you? Do we have some in common? Do your kids believe in Santa, the Christkind, Befana or something else? How do you feel about book series you can’t finish because your library didn’t get them? Do you also have troubles to get your fingers on sequels that aren’t produced anymore? Or is it just me?! 

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always try to stay healthy and safe!
