On My Wishlist: It’s Nearly Christmas!
It’s nearly Christmas! I thought I’d share with you some of the books that are (or were) on my wishlist, so you can perhaps discover books to add to your own wishlist or books to buy for others.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë (Deluxe)
I read Jane Eyre this year as part of an attempt to read more classics – I adored it! I came across this edition in Daunt Books, Marylebone and I thought it was beautiful. Slightly eerie, but beautiful. It has deckle edges.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë (Clothbound)
Who says you don’t need to two copies of Jane Eyre?! I couldn’t decide and so I put this lovely Penguin Clothbound Classics edition on my list too. There are many other lovely editions also, such as Penguin English Library, this pretty floral hardback, and this Vintage Classics paperback.
Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill
I’m cheating slightly as this book is already on a previous wishlist, but Meant to Be has finally been published! I can’t wait to read this cute YA contemporary novel set in London.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is a book I’ve known about for a year or so and after watching Priscilla’s review, I thought I’d finally give it a go. It’ll be perfect for my 2013 Classics Challenge - it’s very different to the ones I’ve read so far.
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
Nothing screams ‘Christmas’ like a good ol’ murder, eh? I have And Then There Were None and Murder on the Orient Express already. I’m trying to build my Agatha Christie collection! I love these matching signature editions.
Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, and The Fault in Our Stars (Box Set) by John Green
I was going to ask for this for Christmas. After all, box sets are the perfect gift, but I just couldn’t wait. I bought it for myself instead. It’s now proudly displayed on my desk while I receive other books for Christmas instead. Win/win.
