Top Three Thursday – Books I Hope Santa Brings

Hello, Wonderlandians. It’s Thursday. One more day till the weekend. What are your plans for this holiday weekend?

Now for this topic today I thought it would be fun. Now I have not asked for any books this year. I usually ask for gift cards. This way I know what books I am getting. Also, I save these for books that I know are coming for the next year.

Once again I got this idea from The Broke and The Bookish. Thank you.

3. Ugly Love

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover.

Funny enough I have read this book about 4 times over the last four years. While I have listened to. I love the audiobook. One of the narrators is Grace Grant. She is one of my all-time favorite narrators. Sadly, for whatever reason, I do not own this audiobook.

My reaction when reading this book.

No seriously my through the whole book. I can not put into words how this book makes me feel.

2. Vampire Academy – Russian Editions

I have wanted these forever! The Vampire Academy books by Richelle Mead. I collect different edition of the books.

I can’t speak Russian but look at how pretty they are.

1. Emma – The Manga

I have Pride and Prejudice and it is so beautiful! I have been wanting to read more classic books. They are just intimating I thought this would be a great way to read them. It is the actual story but there are manga installations. So this is one I am hoping to get in the near future.

Thank you all for joining me here in out little part of wonderland. Don’t forget to feed the unicorns on your way. They grant wishes.

Until next time

Much love

January Jam Jar

Hello, wonderlandians! One thing I am terrible at is getting my TBR pile down to a minuscule number.

(This is an accurate representation of my dancing through my TBR pile.)

I have a ton of books sitting on my bookshelf, on my Kindle bookshelf, on my library bookshelf, and my audible bookshelf. The one thing about the library bookshelf is that after 21 days my books go back to the library so whether I’ve read them or not they are gone. Over this last year, I have accumulated a lot of physical books. I typically tend to listen to an audiobook exclusively at least for the past two years I really haven’t picked up a physical book or an ebook. Timmy audiobooks are a real time-saver I can listen to the books anywhere. Also, I have the ability to have many books on hand at one time.

So I just decided to join Books and Munches in doing the January Jam Jar. This is a challenge where you take your December TBR list and you put it into a jar for January. Now I’m very much a mood reader so I’m really hoping that the books that I’m putting into this jar are going to want to read.  anyway, I know that there are a lot of books that I want to get to so I guess I’m calling that my December TBR. I typically don’t do TBR is because I never end up reading what is on the list. But I feel that the books that I’m choosing to put as my December TBR into my January I’m really excited for. I will make another Post in the beginning of January with my list of books that I want to read for that month.

I encourage everybody to do this and what a shrink our TBR piles for the next year! If you guys want to participate make a blog post announcing that you are going to be doing this.

In that same post if you want to lift the books that you will be reading or you can make a separate post altogether. If you guys are going to be sharing your experience on other social media make sure to use the #JanJamJar. This way we are all able to follow what you guys are doing and we can interact and make January an awesome month for reading. I’m going to leave a link to the original post where Books and munches describes what the challenge is all about and I hope you guys join in on this and we can have an awesome reading year.

I have some really exciting posts coming up within the next couple of weeks also through January that I’m really excited about. Also, I just want to take a quick moment to say thank you to everybody who has been following this blog. I am fairly new to the blogging world and all of the support that I’ve been getting means so much to me. So thank you guys so much!

Thank you guys for joining me here once again in our part of Wonderland. As we are approaching closer to Christmas the unicorns are feeling extremely generous so they are granting wishes and laughed so make sure to Feed them a tree on your way out.

Until next time

Much love
