Lately I’ve been all about books. I think my publishing internship is rubbing on me because, while I’ve always read a lot, this fall I’ve doubled the amount of books I’ve read. This whole year actually. Naturally then, my Christmas wish list this year is mainly books. I’ve been reading a lot of YA and fantasy so most of these are continuations of series.
Sabaa Tahir’s Torch against the Night I’m really excited about because An Ember in the Ashes was BRILLIANT! I can’t say enough good things about it. The Invasion of the Tearling is also a sequel. It continues from the events of The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. Holly Bourne’s …and a Happy New Year? is the latest Spinster Club book and after reading the original trilogy I’m OBSESSED. Holly Bourne writes in such a relatable and funny way. Anna Kendrick’s Scrappy Little Nobody has been something I’ve wanted to read for a while. Also, after watching the new episodes of Gilmore Girls (Did you watch them? Thoughts?), I really want to get my hands on Lauren Graham’s Talking as Fast as I can.
I feel like everyone (including yours truly) is on a Harry Potter high this year. First we got the Cursed Child, now Fantastic Beasts movie AND book, and I’m also going to see the play in London in a month. So obviously, I included a little Hufflepuff-y goodness: the house scarf! I also love the Luna Lovegood mug, she’s definitely one of the most lovable cooky characters in the series. And how cute is the BB-8 mug?! I also really need a new watch and this kitty one speaks to my cat lady soul. Finally, the Doctor Who mug…because it combines Christmas and one of my favorite fandoms.
What’s on your wish list this Christmas? Anything you fancy on my list?
This 5 Fandom Friday post is a bit late due to my unfortunate case of very Christmas-y bronchitis and the merry after-present of an allergic reaction to my antibiotics. However, as I haven’t done these 5 Fandom Friday posts in a long while, I’ll consider this a success! Hopefully now I’ll have more time to blog that I’m on Christmas break :)
So, this (last) week’s topic was “Christmas wish list”, which was a fun coincidence since I was going to post one already. My fandoms are all over the place in this list and there were so many items I wanted to include, that I ended up making a bit of a different kind of division between the things:
- reading (most of my wishes are books…or a poster about books)
- writing (writing guides are lovely)
- toys (one is never too old…)
- clothing (Hobbit-themed T-shirt is a must!)
- and organization (I desperately need a diary for 2016)
