As much as I would love to just buy whatever book I want to read, my tiny bookshelf would never be able to support all those books! The tomes I do have in physical form are usually the ones I choose to collect. Therefore, for this list I'll include books I definitely wouldn't mind having on my shelf or Kindle from Santa...that I don't own already. ;)
Going off topic for a sec: I just did 14 minutes' worth of step exercises on my ottoman and I'm a bit sore. Oh, the wonderful uses of an ottoman!
1. Dawn of the Aspects by Richard A. Knaak
Yes, that is one heck of an ugly dragon on the cover. I read the ebook part by part as it was released serially. It was thrilling. I'd love to have DotA in my World of Warcraft book collection.
2. Throne of Glass
Read it and loved it.
3. Crown of Midnight
Haven't read it yet, but have heard it is way better than the first one. Own it on the Kindle.
4. The Atlas of Middle Earth (Revised Edition) by Karen Wynn Fonstad
Oh. My. Gosh. I would get lost in this for hours. I love that there is so much that I will never know about Middle Earth because it's so expansive.
5. Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
I've heard a lot about this, and on top of that, my friend has recommended it to me. Therefore, I must read it. :)
6-8. Ruby Red trilogy
I haven't read these books yet but the design is so beautiful that I might just get it, and pass it on to my sister if I don't love the stories. These hardcover designs are way prettier than the trade paperbacks.
9. Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed
If I were to lose myself in a long hike across states, I would love to have Strayed as a last name. I heard a lot of buzz about her book, and while some people complained about the cuss words, I don't mind at all. I myself am a potty mouth at times.
10. Tolkien: A Dictionary by David Day
Saw this at the bookstore and it is gorgeous. It would come in handy next quarter in my Tolkien class.
Thanks for stopping by! With Christmas just two days away, I hope you are having fun, whether enjoying the company of people or your own in peaceful solitude. :)
