Books On My Christmas Wish List


Books On My Christmas Wish List


I shared some of the 2019 releases I can't wait to read in a recent post, but thought I'd share with you some of the books I'd like to find in my Christmas stocking/under the tree this year.

Those of you that have followed my posts this year will know that I became a bit Percy Jackson obsessed in 2018. I read all 5 books in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians box set this year and loved them all. 

Obviously I need more. 

Books On My Christmas Wish List

The Heroes of Olympus Paperback Boxed Set is therefore a must. All five books in the Heroes of Olympus series -- in a paperback boxed set (I like to have paperback versions of series) -- From The Lost Hero to the long awaited Blood of Olympus.

Of course, I also need The Kane Chronicles Box Set. A collection fit for the (Egyptian) gods! All three paperback books in the blockbuster Kane Chronicles trilogy- The Red Pyramid, The Throne of Fire, and The Serpent's Shadow.

Then there's the trilogy Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Paperback Boxed Set. You're sensing a theme here aren't you?

I'm not just all about Percy Jackson though. There's another box set on my wish list: The Harry Potter Paperback Box Set (Books 1-7). On the topic of Harry Potter, I wouldn't mind getting the complete box set of the films too.

Another paperback book I'd like is Still Me by Jojo Moyes. I have copies of both Me Before You and After You on my shelf waiting to be read and so need to finish the set.

  1. Ohh that's a great wishlist!! I recently bought myself the HP movie box set since it was on sale - I just couldn't resist!! The Riordan box sets look all so amazing! I only own the first Magnus Chase book in hardcover, which looks really stunning. I'd love to have a Riordan hardcover collection someday :)

    1. I need the Harry Potter box sets of both the books and the films. I'd love to have hardcover copies of all the series. A girl can dream. Maybe one day😉

  2. Lovely list and I do hope you dropped some hints around the house for the family to see which books you'd like to get :-)

    1. Hey if my son can put on his list, and I quote "all the Pokemon cards ever to exist" (I'm not joking he actually wrote that), I should be able to put all the books rights? 😂

  3. My husband wore out our Harry Potter DVD set, I wonder if Blu-Ray last longer?

    1. Good question. To me they all just look like discs. I'm still not sure what the real differences are between DVD and blu-ray. I know I get a clearer picture with blu-ray but I'm not sure why. 🤔

  4. Well, I buy things without waiting to see if someone will buy it for me. I pick out my gifts because my fiancee has no clue what to get me half of the time. Hint: I had to pick out the ring,

    1. I picked my ring too. In fairness he did take me to the shop as a surprise and then ask me to pick the one I wanted. He played it safe 😂

  5. Great list! I've never read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series but you really make me want to:) I think I need to add this to my list as well.

    1. There are so many books I want. One day I will win the lottery (should probably buy a ticket once in a while for that to happen 🤔), and I will buy a big house with a library in it like the one the beast gave to Belle in Beauty and the Beast.

  7. I shall keep my fingers crossed that you get them all. I got a beautiful Harry Potter boxed set last Christmas and the Harry Potter DVD box set a few years ago. I love them.

    1. My list includes all of Brenda K Davies books. (I have them on Audiobook and e-book but I want the paperbacks) and the two Jodi Ellen Malpas books that I don't have in paperback. I am awaiting the release of The Crimes Of Grindlewald screenplay in paperback. (I have the first Fantastic Beasts screenplay in paperback) also socks, slippers and a new Radley Handbag, but I do doubt that I will get the last one. (I just got a bigger tablet and it won't fit into my current Radley)

    2. Aww thanks. I'm still undecided which version of the Harry Potter books box set I want. There are so many beautiful copies available now.
      I like the sounds of your list too. I don't think I've read and Brenda K Davies books yet. Will look them up.

  8. I love Rick Riordan I still need to pick up the last books in both the Magnus Chase series and the Trials of Apollo series so I guess those to are on my wishlist.

    1. The books are even better than the films... and I loved the films. 😊

  10. This is basically my wish list too! I really want the Hufflepuff edition of the Harry Potter series and I've been wanting to read more Rick Riodran books since I read the Percy Jackson series a few years ago.

  11. Since Still Me won this year’s Goodreads fiction award, I’m interested in checking it out!
