On My Wishlist: It’s Nearly Christmas

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.

What’s on your Christmas wishlist?

  1. I have dreams about that edition of Jane Eyre!

  2. Those two Jane Eyres are on my wishlist too! I already have three other versions…
    That’s the thing about bookworms. We collect.

  3. I need that edition of Jane Eyre(the one with the girl on it).

  4. I like all the books in the list, but I am rooting for the John Green and Jane Eyre books. I hope someone would give me copies as well.

  5. I love that clothbound Jane Eyre cover, we have a few of those here and I’ve been eying them for years. A bit out of my price range though.
    And Green’s books are great!
    I started buying Christie’s books this year, I’m 1/3 done with buying, and I’ve read I think 4 so far 🙂 I read them before when I was younger but never in the right order and I also barely remember anything.
    I hope you get all of these 🙂

    • Luckily Penguin were doing a Black Friday sale where everything was half price and free delivery recently!

      Ohh which Agatha Christie books have you read? 🙂

  6. Great choices. I love the edition of Jane Eyre and already own it, it’s even more gorgeous in real life. And I just got “Meant to be” in the mail yesterday, made my day. 🙂
    Hope you will get some or all books from your list soon.


    I mean nice choices.

    • DO IT DO IT.

      I wrote in another post that it has annotations and illustrations, but now I can’t remember if I saw it or read it, and I can’t find anything about it. I hope it does though!

  8. Ohhh the Penguin Cover for Jane Eyre is so beautiful and eerie :). I finally got to open my John Green Boxset last month. I’m thrilled about my Purple J Scribble for Looking For Alaska and my Blue Scribble for The Fault in Our Stars. I’m doing a read-along for TFIOS with a friend of mine starting Saturday. I’m soo excited to read it!

  9. It’s been going well so far I think! I only caught up on today because I finished my final university exams on Friday and I came home yesterday. Who knew you could accumulate so much stuff over four and a half years! I have to say Augustus Waters just melts my heart lol. He’s such a great character and I love the chemistry between him and Hazel.

    Ohhh you got a red J Scribble!! That is awesome 🙂
