Most books I buy for myself are books I have already read and loved, or are by authors that I love beyond belief *cough* Robin McKinley and Tamora Pierce *cough*. So to not be boring and list all the books I love since I'm starting to have repeats (There will still be repeats. I can't help myself), I've decided to split it between books I've already read and books I am 98% sure I will love, but haven't read yet.
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
Soo...I may have accidentally sent myself Throne of Glass instead of the person I meant to mail it to, so Merry Christmas to me! Now all I need is CoM (and the novellas when they come out in print next year!)
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
I have already bought the sequel, Untold, so now I need to get my hands on the first book! And the novellas might be worth reading as well (but then they wouldn't make it on this part of the list anyway)
Mao's Last Dancer by Li Cunxin
This is easily one of the most beautiful books I've ever read. Even better? The movie is just as fantastic as the book, so I highly recommend both! (And want to own both)
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
This book is amazing. It's contemplative, heart breaking, and real in a way you probably wouldn't expect a retelling of Peter Pan to be. I will definitely be rereading this for years to come.
Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
One of my favourite authors, Kristin Cashore is now in my automatically buy anything she's written list. I already own Graceling and Fire (also aren't these book covers AWESOME??), all I need is Bitterblue to complete my collection!
Shadows by Robin McKinley
So, I've already mentioned that Robin McKinley is an automatic buy from me, so obviously this would be on my list. Thanks to my Secret Santa, all I need is this book, and I will own every single McKinley novel. Isn't that crazy?? (And by crazy, I clearly mean AWESOME.)
The Story of Us by Deb Caletti
Deb Caletti is another auto buy, although I don't always keep her books. But I usually keep about 3/4 of them and I love her, so it's worth buying a book to support her! I've gotten a bit behind as I don't have last year's book OR this year's book, so I figure I should deal with last year's one first.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
All I've been hearing this whole year is just how amazing Rainbow Rowell is...and I haven't managed to read any of her books! So she is becoming the #1 priority for me to get to next year. Out of all her books (and I imagine I'll love them all), this one sounds like the one I'd love the most. I mean it is 100% me!
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
*Waits to hear shocked silence that follows the announcement that I have not read this yet*...
Yeah so I should read this. I've not seen a single bad review for it yet. And you know what else? Almost half this entire list is contemporary YA! I'M EVOLVING MUAHAHAHA. I'll be Blastoise, please and thank you.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Aaaaand we're back to my favourite genre. So this is a fairy tale retelling. Did I mention I love those? There's a reason why Robin McKinley is one of my favourite authors. So fairy tale retelling? Check. Sci-fi fairy retelling? Umm, YES PLEASE.
And that's it for my TTT! What books made your list? Leave a link (Or I can't find you and see your list!!) in the comments :)
