‘Tis the holiday season which means that people are thinking of what they’d like to have for Christmas. Here in the Netherlands we don’t really celebrate Christmas with presents underneath the tree, but fortunately, not long after it’s already my birthday (on January 4th)! So, here are the books that are highest on my to-buy and wishlist!
Cujo by Stephen King
Out of the books by the King I haven’t read yet, this one sounds the most interesting to me! I just love to read about things that are scary and that happen “close to home”.
Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders by Vincent Bugliosi & Curt Gentry
I’m a big true crime fan, but I haven’t read many true crime books yet. So far I’ve only read Zodiac and Helter Skelter is one I’d love to read next!
Matilda by Roald Dahl
As a kid I just loved watching the movie Matilda. I was mainly in awe, not of her superpowers, but of her reading skills: I wanted to read just as fast and as much – that was my goal in life!
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
This is a classic that I feel like I just need to read before I turn 30. It’s a big one and a favourite of many. I really hope that I end up loving it just as much!
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
Yes, I still want to give YA a chance, although I know I’ve said that it’s not my thing anymore about a thousand times already. I just really love fairytale adaptations, so I really want to give this series another shot!
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
This seems like such an important book and somehow I still haven’t read it! I see it ending up as a favourite of many, so this one’s definitely high on my to-buy list.
The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur
I loved Milk and Honey and I think the cover of The Sun and Her Flowers is just gorgeous, so I’m definitely looking forward to buying this one!
