My Amazon wishlist is long, like really long. I try to spend time taking books off of it regularly. But, I’m terrible for liking the cover of a book, adding immediately adding it to my wishlist. There are a few books, most of which are recent adds that I am dying to get my hands on. Since my birthday is next month (November) I plan on taking these off my list and purchasing them!
Things I’m Adding to my Amazon Wishlist
This Top 5 Series was created by Amanda over at Devouring Reads and you can check her blog out here.
Daughter of the Drowned Empire by Frankie Diane Mallis
As someone who is currently reading Throne of Glass, I knew I had to ass this to this Amazon wishlist list. This is the first in a 3 book series that would be perfect for fans of Throne of Glass!
19-year-old Lady Lyriana Batavia is a mage and the third in line to the Seat of Power in Bamaria: a position of wealth and privilege, but not safety. Bamaria falls under the rule of the Lumerian Empire, survivors of a celestial war whose island sank in the Drowning. Now all Lumerians submit to the Emperor and his strict laws about magic. He decides what magic can be practiced and what powers remain forbidden. He decides who will die for possession of forbidden magic.
Lyr’s own cousin was murdered for wielding the wrong kind. And for years, Lyr has sworn to protect her older sisters, helping them conceal their own illicit magic.
But when Lyr must participate in the ceremony that reveals her power, she uncovers something else entirely. Something that means banishment from the Empire.
Yet, when she’s forced to train with Lord Rhyan Hart, the man she’s secretly loved since she was a girl—forbidden to her in every way—she’s in danger of losing far more than her family, life, and country.
Rebel forces, and an invading army, are destabilizing Bamaria, just as her family’s secrets threaten to reveal themselves.
Still surviving the training, and saving her sisters may mean sacrificing her own heart.
Keeper of Enchanted Rooms by Charlie N. Holmberg

A Soul to Keep: Duskwalker Brides by Opal Reyne
All Reia ever wanted was freedom.
Known as a harbinger of bad omens and blamed for Demons eating her family, Reia becomes an outcast by her entire village. When the next offering is due and the monstrous Duskwalker is seen coming, her village offers her an impossible choice, face prison or be given to a faceless monster.
All Orpheus ever wanted was a companion.
He’d thought it was a hopeless endeavor until he met her. She’s not afraid of him, and his insatiable desire deepens within every moment of her presence.
The Cloisters by Katy Hays
This atmospheric novel follows a circle of researchers as they uncover a mysterious deck of tarot cards and shocking secrets in New York’s famed Met Cloisters. And is perfect for fans of Ninth House!
When Ann Stilwell arrives in New York City, she expects to spend her summer working as a curatorial associate at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Instead, she finds herself assigned to The Cloisters, a gothic museum, and garden renowned for its medieval art collection and its group of enigmatic researchers studying the history of divination.
Desperate to escape her painful past, Ann is happy to indulge the researchers’ more outlandish theories about the history of fortune-telling. But what begins as an academic curiosity quickly turns into obsession when Ann discovers a hidden 15th-century deck of tarot cards that might hold the key to predicting the future. When the dangerous game of power, seduction, and ambition at The Cloisters turns deadly, Ann becomes locked in a race for answers as the line between the arcane and the modern blurs.
