The Wishlist Diet #4

*The Wishlist Diet is part of the In My Mailbox feature hosted by The Story Siren*

Well, I've just re-organised my wishlist (is there anything more satisfying than alphabetising your books?) but in doing so seem to have doubled its length... So, I'm quite relieved to be doing this week's Wishlist Diet, although I know it's an activity in vain - even if I knock of three titles this week I'll be adding five to the list next week. I have an odd sense of losing the battle and loving it!

To read:

Young Samurai: The Ring of Fire by Chris Bradford
Hunger by Michael Grant
A Tangle of Magicks by Stephanie Burgis

To review:

The Ring of Earth by Chris Bradford
The Ring of Water by Chris Bradford
Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriott
The Raven Girl by Kathy Cecala

Quite a stack this week! I'm hoping to get up to date with Young Samurai so I can sit and sweat in anticipation of the next one. What is that odd sensation of wanting the next book but also enjoying the excruciating wait between releases? I guess it's just one of the paradoxes of being a book nerd.

I'm especially looking forward to tomorrow when I will be posting my first ever Self Publishing Spotlight feature with the lovely Kathy Cecala who has given me a belter of a guest post. So if you have ever wondered what it's like to be your own publisher make sure you stop by tomorrow and maybe I can persuade you to try a self published book with my review of The Raven Girl.


  1. Hunger and A Tangel of Magicks are both amazing. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

  2. A Tangle of Magicks is SO cute! I absolutely loved it :D Enjoy, and I love your blog! :)

  3. Great set! I haven't heard of the Young Samurai series. They look good. I'll have to look them up.
