On My Radar is a new feature where I’ll be talking about some of the things on my wishlist. I’m hoping to do one of these every few months, because, other than loving sharing things, these posts will also remind me to give priority to these items!
I’m not too sure when I first noticed The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion but the cover has always interested me and I think it’s finally time I read it. I think I’ll be buying this for my Kindle sometime soon.
Story time: When I was around eight or nine, I was obsessed with mermaids thanks to the TV show H20: Just Add Water. When I say obsessed I mean I used to pretend I was a mermaid. Whilst I grew out of that stage, I absolutely can’t wait to read Of Poseidon by Anna Banks because it sounds freaking awesome. Mermaids!
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry was brought to my attention when Stacey wrote her review on it and it sounds right up my street. What’s better than a book about book lovers?! That’s obviously a rhetorical question. I’ve read a few books in the past year or two about book lovers (I really enjoyed The Library of Unrequited Love) and I can’t wait to read more.
A non-fiction book, also about books as with The Storied Life, I’ve wanted to read Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops for about a year now. I read a newspaper article with a few extracts from the book and I loved it, so I already know this is a book I will be racing to buy. I can’t believe I haven’t already!
Frostbeard Studio Candle in Old Books – I’ve seen these candles on Tumblr a lot and I’d really love to try it out sometime. I absolutely adore candles and I can’t think of anything better than a candle that smells like books! There are lots of different scents, including one that smells like Dumbledore’s Office. How awesome does that sound?!
The Fault in Our Stars iPhone case – I’ve looked at lots of different phone cases, but the one linked is definitely one of the best I’ve seen before and the Etsy shop has lots of designs to choose from. Definitely something I’ll be considering getting in the future!
