Books I Want for Christmas

Wednesday, December 13, 2017, by taylorisreading


Hello everyone and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

This post is my second installment in my blogmas! If you didn't read the last post, it was the Christmas Song Book Tag, that you can read here. I am getting more and more into the Christmas mood, and it has come to the point where Christmas music is pretty much all I listen to. I hope you guys are becoming just as merry as I am, and feel free to do the posts I do to bring some cheer to your blog. Let me know if you do, so I can read it!

Today I will bringing you some of the books I want most for Christmas! I want to read so many books, and I am really happy with anything at all, but if I had to choose, then these would be the books I would probably get for myself. Let me know the books you want, whether you celebrate Christmas or not :)

I love paperback books, so these are all paperback copies of the books. I really wanted to include A Court of Wings and Ruin, but that doesn't come out on paperback until May *sad face.*

empire of stormsEmpire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

     It has been so long since I have been able to read a TOG book, and I miss it so much. I miss Celaena , and omg I miss Chaol.

RavenBoysThe Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater

I have been looking to start this series for forever, so I hope I can finally get a chance to get into this series.




Flamecaster by Cinda WIlliams ChinaFlamecaster

The first time I ever heard of this book was when I spotted it in Barnes and Noble - I would have gotten it, too, but I chose Cruel Beauty, and loved it so I'm not even sorry.

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan RhodesFallingKingdoms

Yet another series I have been meaning to start, but chose a different series to buy instead of this one. I bought The Novice even though I had this one in my hand.




mistbornThe Final Empire (Mistborn book 1) by Brandon Sanderson

This book dominates booktube and I really want to know what all the hype is about. Also, this cover is gorgeous - it's white and blue, which is everything I love in a cover.

UprootedUprooted by Naomi Novik

This is also another gorgeous cover. I first heard of this book, I believe, by A Clockwork Reader, or maybe PeruseProject, and since then I have been dying to read it.



A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

A Darker Shade final for Irene

I think I'm the last person in the world to read this book.

The Rose and the Dagger by  Renne AhdiehRoseandtheDagger

The Wrath and the Dawn now owns part of my soul, so I need this one. It's like books are my horcruxes.

An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret RogersonEnchantment_of_Ravens

This book was the PeruseATopia book club book of the month a couple months ago, and they both loved it, so I cannot wait to see why!




ruin and risingRuin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and Bone is a series loved by sooo many people, and I really want to get into it, but this is the last book... hopefully this one makes me full-blown Grisha.

Six of CrowsSix of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Yet another series I have been dying to read. I have little to no idea what this is about because every description I have heard is escaping me, but that's one reason why I'm so intrigued.



Thank you for reading, and Merry Blogmas!



  1. Flamecaster I need to check out. Thanks!

  2. I really want to read a darker shade of magic this year and the mistborn series I always end up choosing different books πŸ“š you have a lot of really good books of your lust 😊

  3. Thank you! And I do the same exact thing!! Lol

  4. I hope you love The Raven Cycle, it’s one of my favourite book series, ever ♥️ I also finished the Shades of Magic series only a few days ago and it was amazing (especially book #3). As for Mistborn - I’ve heard only the best things about it and it’s definitely on my tbr for 2018 😍

  5. I purchased Six of Crows a couple months ago. I still haven’t had the chance to read. I may read that during my Christmas break.

  6. I'm glad you liked the series so much!! That makes me so excited to read them😊 and I hope you enjoy Mistborn♡♡

  7. Definitely let me know what you think when you read one of the series and I hope you enjoy them, too πŸ’•

  9. I've been meaning to read Falling Kingdoms for so long as well πŸ™ˆ maybe 2018 will be the year for both of us 😊

  10. I hope so!! It sounds amazing😊 if I just owned it already lol I would read it

  11. It does!!!! I actually own it but I'm so scared of cliffhangers I haven't picked it up yet aha

  12. I dont blame you!πŸ˜‚ I would need the whole series first to pick it up

  13. That's my reasoning with so many series and it's so bad!

  14. I wish I could get the whole series at a timeπŸ˜‚ I'm so college broke

  15. That's literally the goal!!! Ahaha I'm adult broke so I feel you aha too many books, not enough money 😭

  16. Hope you enjoy all of them, especially The Rose and the Dagger since I’ve completely adored it! ❤

  17. Yay, I'm so excited to continue that story😁 I'm glad you loved it too!!

  18. Uprooted was sooo good! I read it sometime last year or the year before and was absolutely floored by how awesome of a retelling it was!

  20. Beauty and the Beast! My weakness😍
