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 – the shops I most often buy from.
At the moment, there are a couple of hundred books on my wishlists – I kid you not; #booknerdissues – and I like to highlight a few of them in my Wishlist Wednesday article.
In this week’s Wishlist Wednesday I’ll be talking about books that I read in digital format and want to add to my printed collection for several reasons:
- First and foremost because I want to support authors as much as I can. And if I’m lucky enough to receive an e-arc and then love the book when reading it, I just want to buy the book to support the author this way 🙂
- because I loved the book a lot and want to do a re-read with a print edition in my hands
- and of course because I just want to add them to my collection and have them look pretty on the shelves 😉
Today I have 10 books to show you guys that I’ve read as e-arcs and that I really want to add to my printed collection as well – some have already been pre-ordered.
Click on the Title links and you’ll be redirected to the Goodreads Page of the book.
You can read the synopsis there and maybe even add the book to your wishlist if you haven’t read it yet,
because all of these are highly recommended reads 😉
Caulk Tease is a RomCom book that you can pick up anytime! This book will definitely get you in a great mood. Laugh out loud humor and a frigging sweet and sexy romance! I really want to do a re-read of this book soon, so I have to make buying this one a priority.
Dark ‘N Deadly by Tee O’Fallon is the 3rd installment in the Federal K-9 series, a romantic suspense series that has fantastic K-9 dogs present and some very sexy handlers. I love the fact that Tee has experience of working in the field – she’s a detective herself – and that she’s always put a lot of work in background information checks regarding the training and handling of the dogs. Her knowledge & writing styl, in combination with the story elements; characters, romance and the suspense, make the perfect romantic suspense books in my opinion. Must reads if you like these kind of books!! I own all of her other books, but I still need to add this one to my shelves. I was lucky enough to receive an arc last year but haven’t gotten around to buy the book yet – so hopefully soon!
The Replacement Crush by Lisa Brown Roberts is a super fun YA contemporary romance that I Loved reading. This was the first book I read by this author and I’ve read 3 in total now. Safe to say that Lisa has become one of my favorites within this sub-genre. She’s always mentioned in my top 3 when someone asks for books like these. I read an arc of this one way back and still haven’t gotten around to buy the book in print yet, unfortunately. I did buy 2 other books over time, but really want to complete my collection by buying them all haha.
Beneath cruel Fathoms by Anela Deen is one of my favorite 2019 reads. This fantasy romance book is the first in a new fantasy series and it was my first read by this author. I’m so thankful that Anela offered me an arc of her book – I truly love it so much when authors take the time to check out bloggers and approach the ones they think would like their books – and that I had the opportunity to read it early. I did put in a pre-order for the print copy (the book is going to re-release next month!) because I just had to have it on my shelves. So next monthy I’ll be holding this precious one in my hands, yay!
Ever since first reading Scoring Wilder by RS Grey some years ago, I’ve been hooked on her books. I haven’t read all of them yet, but the later releases are ones I kept updated with. I was lucky enough to begiven some arc’s of some of her releases the past years and Coldhearted Boss was one of those. This was a fantastic read and needs to be added to my Grey collection on the shelves. I always love re-reading her books every once in a while. Grey is one of my favorite RomCom authors and I highly recommend her books!
Dark Skies is the 2nd installment in the Dark Shores series by Danielle L. Jensen, YA Fantasy. This is a companion novel set around other characters than the ones we read about in book 1. I’ve loooooved Everything Danielle’s written so far and she’s one of my newest found favorite authors. I cannot recommend her books enough, whether it’s Dark Shores or her Malediction trilogy (YA Fantasy) or The Bridge Kingdom (NA Fantasy Romance)… Love it all. I got an e-arc through Netgalley which is now waiting to be read, but I’ve supported Danielle ever since I read the first book and to also complete my collection so far, I of course put in a pre-order for this one, that’s set to release next month.
Lexi is one of my favorite authors. I got to know her when I was approached to review her books when she started publishing some years ago. I’ve been hooked ever since! Everything she’s written that I’ve read so far, have been utterly amazing reads! Scarlet Mark was no exception. Loved it! I got an e-arc of the book and seeing Lexi is one of the authors I support no matter what, this book has to be added to the collection of course. I haven’t gotten around to buy it yet, so it’s on the wishlist! With Scarlet Mark Lexi has ventured into the Dark Romance sub-genre and ooomigod; she was born to write Dark romance! I highly recommend this one!
Worth Fighting For by Laura Kaye is a novella in the Warrior Fight Club series, a contemporary romance series focused on veterans. I’ve been loving Laura’s books for years now and I’ve had the opportunity to read an e-arc of this one when I was part of her review team a while ago. It’s a fantastic read, a beautiful addition to the series, and I just want to buy all of her books because I love her writing and I love re-reading her books. I haven’t gotten around to get it yet, so hopefully soon!
The Fiery Crown by Jeffe Kennedy is the 2nd installment in the Forgotten Empires series. I was introduced to this author when I read a novella by her that was in an anthology > Seasons of Sorcery and have wanted to read more by her ever since then. I was given an e-arc of the first book in this series, the Orchid Throne which I really liked! It was a fun first book in this new Fantasy Romance series. I also received an e-arc of the follow up book then, The Fiery Crown. I haven’t read it yet – oops – but I’m already sure that I want to buy and add it to my collection so that my print copy of the Orchid Throne has some compoany 😉
Same goes for Highland Sword by May McGoldrick, which is the 2nd installment in the Royal Highlanders series. I was given an e-arc of the first book before the release and I loooved this Historical Romance book a lot. This second book, of which I was also given an e-arc, is focused on another couple and I can’t wait to dive into this world again, hopefully soon. And I’m excited to add this book in print to my collection as well!
At the moment, these are the ones I want to buy most when it comes to books that I own digitally and want to add to my shelves for one reason or another.
Do you often buy print copies after having read an e-arc/digital book, if you read those? Thanks for reading!
