Wishlist Wednesday #4


Wishlist Wednesday is hosted by Pen To Paper and is a chance to share the book you're currently lusting after. It's weekly because we're bookworms and we love to read. A lot. So sometimes our MOST WANTED is quickly read and replaced.


I'll also be posting a non-book wishlist item. But it will probably be book-related because let's be honest, I can't help myself. Books are my life.


THE BOOK

Mae never asked to be craft-born. She never wanted that burden.

The realm needs magic again, and the the King of Aegunlund has been waiting for the first craft-born girl to marry his son, Prince Casimir.

In Mae's town of Halts-Walden, the ambitious miller claims his daughter Ellen is craft-born. Mae knows this is a load of hogwash, but she's glad Ellen will have the unfortunate pleasure of becoming queen instead of her. All she has to do is sit back and wait until Casimir and Ellen are married, then she will finally be free of the threat of her fate. But on that day an event so shocking and terrible occurs that Mae finds herself entering the neighbouring cursed forest on a quest she never thought she'd have to follow. 

Join Mae as she rides her white stag through the Waerg Woods with a pampered prince at her heels. She's out for revenge and nothing, no one, will get in her way.

Why do I want this?
  1. It's Sarah Dalton, if you haven't read her then go do it now.
  2. Look at that cover. LOOK AT IT. It's all the pretties and mysteries and gorgeousness!
When will I get it? Well as soon as possible. And the if it's as awesome as I think it's gonna be (cause everything I've read by Sarah Dalton is all kinds of awesome) then I'll be getting my hands on a delightful signed paperback to giveaway here on the blog!

Oh, I'm taking part in the Blitz too, so keep your eyes peeled on the 5th-7th of March for all kinds of fun.

THE NOT A BOOK

So, I haven't got a bookshelf. Not a single one. But boy do I need one. I actually spend a lot of time looking at bookshelfs, which is probably why I haven't got one yet - too much choice! So my books are hanging around in piles, stacked EVERYWHERE and in trunks and boxes.

But look at this beauty. It's an Up-cycled Railway Trunk Drinks Cabinet/Bookshelf b y CreaturesOfTheSea on Etsy.  It's a bit too far out of my budget for me to even consider, but look at how beautiful it is. I just had to share it.

And who knows, if I win the lottery one day maybe I can get it *crosses fingers*

Isn't Etsy wonderful?

  6. I haven't read this author before but the book is on my wishlist. It sounds awesome. I think I saw it on Netgalley but Im not sure. The book shelf is awesome but for me is way too small. I have over 900 physical books in my house and hubby had to build floor to ceiling shelves for them :)

    I don't have a book shelf either, but I need one desperately because my books are slowly taking over my room. I love that book shelf, I hope you're able to get it.

    Thanks for sharing! :)
