Book Wish List: Narrowing Down What To Buy

My list of books to buy is always so long, that I tend to just go nuts and buy anything and everything. It grows every single month, especially since I haven't bought a book in 3 months. Actually, scratch that. I've bought one this month and that's The Retribution of Mara Dyer, because I have waited too long for this.

So this year I've decided to narrow down my list to make buying books for my birthday just a bit easier. Can you really believe that I spent $300 worth of books for my birthday last year? Oh wait. I think we all have that problem.

1. To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
This has been on my wish list even before it was released, and I am so ready to get my hands on it.

2. Burn For Burn Series by Jenny Han
Finally the entire series is out, with the covers looking the same as well.

3. The Cure For Dreaming by Cat Winters
Yes to Cat Winters and her creepy writing. I loved her previous novel, and hoping that this one meets my expectations as well.

4. The Assassin's Blade: Throne of Glass Novella by Sarah J. Maas
Going to fill my Throne of Glass withdrawals with stories about Calaena, and her previous life.

5. Coraline by Neil Gaiman
I really want to watch this movie, but my book reading habits means I have to read it first!

6. The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two by Catherynne M. Valente
A lovely series with such a magical feeling to it.

7. Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas
I loved Dangerous Girls for its creepiness and thrilling read, and I'm pretty sure Dangerous Boys can deliver the same.

8. For Darkness Shows The Stars by Diana Peterfruend
Let's be honest - this is a cover buy.

9. Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson
I've wanted this for over a year already and I think it's finally I treat myself to something that's a bit pricier but very beautiful as well.

10. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
A bit of psychological thriller - why not?

11. S by J.J Abrams and Doug Dorst
A story within a story, set up as a library booked. This is fascinating and creative.

12. Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
The companion novel to Code Name Verity, I'm ready to get back into the historical war setting.

13. The King's Curse by Philippa Gregory
For a series that I've loved, I'm not sure why I haven't picked up the final instalment yet. I'm very ashamed of myself.

14. Sky Fall Series by Shannon Messenger
*Cough* another cover buy *cough*. What it's so pretty!

15. Once by Cameron Dokey
Three fairytale retellings bound up into one book - I'm excited to read the Mulan retelling because I've never read one.

Phew, now that's done. On second thought, I think 12 books and 3 series will equal to about $300. I did not think this through.

What are you planning to buy next?
