My “Books To Buy One Day” List

books to buy

Hello bookworms! Hope you’re all having a good day πŸ™‚

Today’s post idea is a bit random.

Basically, I have this list written down in my notebook of all the books I plan on buying one day in the future. Whether that be soon, or in a year’s time (if I still want it then). And when I get one of them, I highlight it to cross it off.

So this post…is pretty much just that list!

I wasn’t sure whether this would be interesting or not, but I did a poll on twitter asking whether people would be interested, and most voted Yes. Also I figured this would be interesting to look back on at the end of the year to see how many I managed to tick off.

So here it is!

I’ll split this into 3 sections:Β 

1. Books that are already released

2. Books that are not yet released

3. Books that are released, but I’m waiting for the paperback to be released.

So really, this is like a huge TBR/anticipated releases mash up post, right?

Also, since I updated this list at the start of February, some of these books I might already have – these books will be shown with a strike-through.

This is going to be quite a long post I think, so get comfy and enjoy!

Books where I’m waiting for the paperback version to be released…

because for some reason, you sometimes have to wait months for the paperbacks

The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare Β (I know there’s a paperback, but I want the standard size one)

Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke

Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella

SO there we have it!

One VERY long list of books.

I’ve probably forgotten some, and it could easily be longer.


This probably makes me looks greedy, wanting so many books, but this list is here because when people recommend me books, I write them down so I don’t forget them. That’s what this list is. Because if someone goes to the effort of recommending me a book, I’m going to remember that and give it a go! Also it just makes it so much easier when it comes to buying books – I can just pull out the list and choose a few.


Share your thoughts!

Which 5 books would you recommend the most from the list? (that are already released). It’ll make my decision a bit easier next time I buy some if I know which ones you guys recommend!

Are there any other books you think should be on my list?

Do you have a list of books to buy?Β 


I hope you guys enjoyed this post!

I’m sort of worried it’ll be boring, since it’s literally just a very long list of books…but hey ho.

I enjoyed writing it at least *shrugs*

Until next time…

    1. I thought there’s be more than that haha! Either we don’t have similar reading taste (although we both love Sarah J Maas) or you haven’t gotten round to reading them either xD

  1. Wowowow this list is beautiful!! I’m definitely buying the SJM books and the JK Rowling book. Other than that I’ll probably get everything else at the library πŸ™‚

  2. You should definitely read The Bane Chronicles πŸ™‚ They’re really awesome stories and you could read them on the bus/train or in the car in one sitting.

    1. So am I! I feel like I’ve been waiting ages, and there’s still ages to go yet 😦 but oh well, there’s plenty to tide me over until then. And thank you!


  3. There are quite a few books here that I’ve been wanting to read too! I just got approved to review The Lie Tree on NetGalley which I’m pretty excited about. I would definitely recommend Between Shades of Gray! It’s one of my all-time favorite reads. πŸ™‚
