Blogmas Day 2 // Books on my Christmas wishlist

With Christmas only a few weeks away, I decided to give you a peek at what’s on my wishlist this year. Much to my Dad’s chagrin, I always ask for at least a few books for Christmas (he thinks I have too many already) so I thought I’d share them for Blogmas day two.

1. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo


This book sounds fantastic and after all the hype and praise I’ve heard, I’m desperate to read it, so I’ve asked for it for Christmas. If I get it, I’ll be able to read it ASAP in the new year.

2. The Brilliant Death


This queer adventure novel about gangs and magic sounds new and exciting, and it’s only just come out, so I thought I’d ask for it for Christmas.

3. A Darker Shade of Magic US boxed set

I’m steadily collecting as many editions of Victoria Schwab’s books as possible, so when I found out there was a boxed set of the US ADSOM covers, I was really keen to get them. But instead of treating myself, I thought I’d ask for them for Christmas instead, so they are something to look forward to.

4. The Best We Could Do


This is a graphic novel by Vietnamese author and artist Thi Bui and it’s been on my radar for a while. The story sounds moving and the art is beautiful, so I’m really keen to read it.

5. Six of Crows Collector’s Edition

Six of Crow is one of my favourite books of all time, so when I heard there was a collector’s edition coming out I yelled. And then I added it to my wishlist.

6. Vanity Fair


I recently watched the ITV adaptation of Vanity Fair and it made me really want to read the book. My aunt is an English teacher and I knew she’d read this, so when she asked what I wanted for Christmas, I asked her for the the Penguin Clothbound edition. Needless to say, she was very excited.


Billy bookcase

IKEA BILLY bookcase Adjustable shelves; adapt space between shelves according to your needs.

After months and months of telling me I have too many books and should get rid of some, one day my Dad turned around and said ‘why don’t you ask for another bookcase for Christmas?’. Major curveball. But when I realised he was serious, I started looking at potential Billy bookcases (my favourites) from Ikea. I have one big bookcase in my room, which is my main one, and one smaller one, but the smaller one is pretty rickety. So I’ve asked for the above Billy to replace it and I’m incredibly excited.

If you celebrate Christmas, what are you asking for? Do you mainly ask for books or other things?

Until next time,KateNEW

  1. This is a great list! Iโ€™ve added a few books to my husbands amazon cart so he has ideas of what to get me! Hah! Iโ€™ve also bought myself two or three books and wrapped them, Iโ€™ll probably forget which they are by the time Christmas comes around.

    1. Aww thank you! Haha that’s such a good idea! I just sent my boyfriend my Goodreads TBR and said ‘if you’re not sure what I own and what I don’t please ask my parents to check my shelves’ ๐Ÿ˜› He didn’t seem to mind! Ooh nice, I like little presents to yourself at Christmas! What kind of books do you usually read over the festive season?

      1. Ohhh goodreads is a good idea. I made a shelf thatโ€™s โ€œmy owned tbr listโ€ I donโ€™t read a whole lot of seasonal reads. Iโ€™m hoping to read Holly Chase, I just got it in the mail. Iโ€™m mostly going to try to catch up on new releases and books Iโ€™ve bought throughout the year. I donโ€™t have too many seasonal books, are there any you recommend?

  2. I’ve only asked for THREE BOOKS this year because I still haven’t read my birthday books from April :’) I have asked for a bookcase as well though because I’m starting to get major overflow going on

      1. It isn’t a Billy! I’m such a traitor… but it’s only because Argos has cheaper delivery for us as it’s much closer than the nearest Ikea! My big massive white bookcase that is really well-made I managed to get from the British Heart Foundation so I am currently Billy-less.

        I asked for Golden Son and Morning Star by Pierce Brown, and Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy!

  3. Oh there is so much I would want for Christmas that is bookish related ๐Ÿ˜ I actually really need to buy books 2 and 3 in the Shades of Magic Trilogy, as I only own and have read book 1 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ I recently read Evelyn Hugo – it’s really good so I hope you enjoy it as well ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Great wishlist! I loved The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo! The collectors edition of Six of Crows is too pretty โค I don't celebrate Christmas with gifts, unfortunately (haha)!

    1. Thanks Do! Ahhh I’m so happy to hear that you liked it – yet more praise to add to the accolades! I honestly can’t wait to read it. Yeah, the SOC collector’s edition is so beautiful, the covers designers really outdid themselves! Do you celebrate Christmas in a different way? ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Yes! We celebrate it with the family, just eating and talking but no presents โค Which is also fine with me!
