[WISHLIST WEDNESDAY] Christmas Wishlist #1

Putting Wishlists together is maybe just as much fun as buying the book themselves I think. I love discovering new books and add them to my wishlists so I can hopefully buy them in the future. I have many different Wishlists on different webshops like Bol.com, the Bookdepository, and Amazon.

At the moment, there are a couple of 100 books on my wishlists – I kid you not #booknerdissues – and I like to highlight a few of them in my Wishlist Wednesday article that I plan on publishing every week like I did on my other blog as well.

Today I’ll be sharing one of my Christmas wishlists – you read that right; one of… I have like 6 different Christmas wishlists, lol. I’m one of those people who has her Christmas wishlists ready months before December is even in sight yet, lol.

Today’s particular wishlist is one from my Amazon account that I put together for my husband since he always buys me books for Christmas to put under our tree at home. The reason why I have a separate Amazon wishlist is that a lot of books that I want to buy aren’t always available on the book depository or the Dutch webshop I regularly order from – that’s probably because a lot of the Amazon books are books written by self-published authors.

♥ Fallen Academy by Leia Stone (Fallen Academy #1)
Genre: Fantasy/New Adult/Romance/Angels/Demons

40941601Brielle Atwater isn’t sure of much, but she knows a few things:

1. Having black wings is not normal.
2. Selling her soul to the demons was a mistake.
3. Lincoln Grey is the biggest asshole she’s ever met … but not falling in love with him might prove impossible. 

When angels fell from the sky to war with the demons that ravaged Earth, their combined powers infected humanity. Now, the humans are assigned one of two fates, being either demon gifted or angel blessed.

After wings sprout from Brielle’s back at her awakening ceremony, she’s sure she’s an angel blessed celestial. It’s not until she sees black wings that she realizes something is terribly wrong.

Having sold her contract at a young age to save her father’s life means she should be bound for Tainted Academy. That is until a fallen angel unexpectedly fights for her to be accepted into Fallen Academy, the elite school for those that inhabit Angel City.

She’s immediately matched with her impossibly handsome celestial teacher, Lincoln Grey. Laying eyes on him, her first thought is that her time at the academy might actually be fun, but this theory quickly fades when she and Lincoln clash on day one. To further prove her admission into Fallen Academy is cursed, the entire school is thrown into chaos when an Abrus demon reveals that he knows Brielle’s secret. Now, above all else, Lincoln must fight to protect her. To his surprise, the only thing more difficult than trying to save her … is trying not to fall for her.

♥ Pestilence by Laura Thalassa (the Four Horsemen #1)
Genre: Fantasy/New adult/Romance 

41831210They came to earth—Pestilence, War, Famine, Death—four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all.

When Pestilence comes for Sara Burn’s town, one thing is certain: everyone she knows and loves is marked for death. Unless, of course, the angelic-looking horseman is stopped, which is exactly what Sara has in mind when she shoots the unholy beast off his steed.

Too bad no one told her Pestilence can’t be killed.

Now the horseman, very much alive and very pissed off, has taken her prisoner, and he’s eager to make her suffer. Only, the longer she’s with him, the more uncertain she is about his true feelings towards her … and hers towards him.

And now, well, Sara might still be able to save the world, but in order to do so, she’ll have to sacrifice her heart in the process.

College junior John Logan can get any girl he wants.

He wants her back? He’ll have to work for it. This time around, she’ll be the one in the driver’s seat…and she plans on driving him wild.

Genre: Sports Romance/College

32066878.jpgZeke Daniels isn’t just a douchebag; he’s an a**hole.

A total and complete jerk, Zeke keeps people at a distance. He has no interest in relationships—most a**holes don’t.

Dating?
Being part of a couple? Nope. Not for him.

He’s never given any thought to what he wants in a girlfriend, because he’s never had any intention of having one. Shit, he barely has a relationship with his family, and they’re related; his own friends don’t even like him.

So why does he keep thinking about Violet DeLuca?
Sweet, quiet Violet—his opposite in every sense of the word.
The light to his dark, even her damn name sounds like rays of sunshine and happiness and shit.

And that pisses him off, too.

♥ Brave by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Wicked trilogy #3)
Genre: Fantasy/Paranormal Romance/Fae/Fairies 

23149316Synopsis of book 1, Wicked;
Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

    I have a wishlist also, but I do my best NOT to delve into it because I have a serious book problem (and shoe problem, and jeans problem. )

    1. MelissasFandomWorld

      haha yeah, delving into them is so confronting, yikes! I have so many different wish lists, it’s not funny anymore haha. Whenever I buy a new book, I have so much trouble choosing one because there’s just too much books on my wish lists haha but well… I just want them all! lol. And I do have some other buying issues as well, lol; shoes, bags, bookish merchandise.

    1. MelissasFandomWorld

      I keep them separately since I have a lot of books I want to buy but I only add books to my to do/tbr when I got them. But I do have a to be read list on Goodreads on which there are a lot of books I haven’t bought as well, but really want to. There’s really no logic in my system, lol.

    1. MelissasFandomWorld

      Oh, I’m going to add it to my wishlist right away! edit: After looking up the bargainer series I came to the conclusion I had already added it to my GR tbr and had put it on one of my wish lists as well already, yay haha. Argh, can’t wait to buy and read this authors books!!! Thanks for the rec!

    1. MelissasFandomWorld

      I’m so curious about Fallen Academy! Looks indeed like a fun read and I’ve heard great things about pestilence as well. I love reading books like those so can’t wait to see if they’re underneath the Christmas tree hihi.

    1. MelissasFandomWorld

      haha yeah, I got no problem whatsoever when it comes to creating wish lists, lol. Well, maybe it IS a problem that I have too many of them, but ah well… we’re amongst book reader so we all know how it’s like, right? hihi

  2. boekenwormmam

    Great list all the books sound amazing. I’ve read The mistake and loved it! But I’m a huge Elle Kennedy fan haha.

    1. MelissasFandomWorld

      Have you read Claimed yet? I loved that one a lot! Story-wise it isn’t really strong and well written but the sexiness in this book is so frigging good! Haven’t often come across a book that was so intense, loved it! Can’t wait to read book 2 and 3. And can’t wait to continue reading the off campus series as well.

  3. dominds

    Ah great list! To be honest, I had never heard of these books before, haha. I’m also really curious about The Mistake, since I really enjoyed The Deal by Elle Kennedy! I haven’t made a wishlist yet!

    1. MelissasFandomWorld

      the Deal was indeed really enjoyable! Can’t wait to continue reading the other books in the series. I want to own and read them before September ’19 since the author is going to the RARE event in London, so I can choose which ones to bring with me to get signed. I have more Christmas wish lists coming in the next couple of weeks, lol. Had to create multiple; for my husband, family and friends so I thought it would be more comfy for everyone if I made separate lists haha.

  4. Kati 👩🏻 (@KatisBRR15)
