Okay, so I should probably begin this post by apologising. It’s been over a week since I last posted anything, but for good reason… I graduated from university! My twin sister Emily graduated a week before me, and I graduated on Wednesday. I now officially have a 2:1 BA (Hons) in Film & TV Production, and I couldn’t be happier. Now to move on to the next chapter of my life, which is exciting but slightly terrifying.
Now’s time to get back to regular posting. Today’s post should have been posted on Wednesday but as I said above, Wednesday was my graduation day so writing a blog post wasn’t really my top priority! This week’s Top 5 Wednesday is recent additions to my wishlist, which is probably one of the easiest ones to answer because my wishlist is almost as long as my TBR pile. Let’s go!
1. Proposal and Remembrance by Meg Cabot
One of my favourite book series as a teenager was Meg Cabot’s The Mediator. The books follow Susannah “Suze” Simon and her experiences as a teenage mediator – a person who has abilities to see, touch and talk to ghosts. Her main goal is to help them get to the “Great Beyond” (the afterlife). There are 6 books in the original series. Recently, I discovered that Meg Cabot has written two more stories – a novella and a full-length novel. I have the 6-book series on my bookshelf and I’d love to add these new ones to my collection!
2. The rest of the Angels Unlimited series by Annie Dalton
This is another series I adored when I was younger. It’s about Mel Beeby, a popular high-school girl who one day is suddenly run over and killed. She finds herself in the Angel Academy: a heavenly school where people are trained to become time-travelling, trouble-shooting, good-vibe-giving angels. I have 7 of these books and I only found out the other day that there are 12! That means one thing… I must get them all! I’m going to review this series on my blog very soon as I’ve recently started to re-read them.
3. Undivided by Neal Shusterman
This is the fourth book in another series I love – the Unwind series by Neal Shusterman. The books are a set in a dystopian world in which kids can be sent by their parents or by the state to be ‘unwound’. In simple terms, their bodies are taken apart piece by piece so their parts can be given to those who need them most.
In one book, a boy is made completely using other people’s parts, including patchwork skin and hair that sprouts in different lengths and colours. This is one of my favourite series, but I still haven’t read Undivided, the final book. It’s always been too expensive to buy on my student budget. Hopefully I can get it soon – I’ll have to re-read the whole series because it’s been so long!
4. Sharp Objects, Dark Places and The Grownup by Gillian Flynn
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, in case you hadn’t noticed with my CONSTANT mentioning of it, is one of my favourite books. I love the story, the way it’s written, and the way in which the characters are written. I really want to read the rest of Gillian Flynn’s books. Gone Girl was pretty much the book that introduced me to crime thrillers, so I really should read the rest of Flynn’s books if they’re as great as Gone Girl is!
5. Harry Potter Illustrated Editions
This isn’t really a new addition to my wishlist because I’ve wanted them for what feels like years, but I REALLY WANT THEM so I may as well include it on my list. These books are so beautiful and big and they would look so nice on my bookshelf!
Have you read any of the books in my wishlist? What have you recently added to yours?
