It’s that time of year again, and as per usual, there are a select few books on my wish list for this Christmas. If any of you have read any of these books, let me know what you thought of them, and I always welcome more recommendations to add to my list!
1. The Sorcerer Heir (The Heir Chornicles book 5) by Cinda Williams Chima
The Heir Chronicles is my second favourite series from Chima (the Seven Realms being my favourite series ever). In the final instalment of the series, Emma and Jonah must join forces with some old friends and new allies to once and for all between the Wizards and the underguilds. It seems like an impossible task, and I can’t wait to see Emma, Jonah, and the rest of the gang work together to fight against those threatening to destroy whatever fragile stability they have managed to create so far.
To learn more about the series, and find out where you (or your friends/family) can pick up a copy, visit the official website.
2. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
I’ve never read a novel from Aveyard before, but her novel Red Queen had me intrigued from the title alone.
As the synopsis from GoodReads said, “The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.
“To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change. Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of those she hates the most.
“She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.
“But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?”

3. The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
Black’s novel takes readers into the lives of Hazel and her brother Ben, who live in a town where the Fae live with humans side by side. As events start to unfold, Hazel will find herself caught up in betrayals, love, and changing loyalties.
The Darkest Part of the Forest promises a novel full of the dangerous Fae and mysterious mythology that Black excels at. Check out more info, including a lot more detailed synopsis, check here.
4. Gathering Darkness: A Falling Kingdoms novel by Morgan Rhodes
I’m always up for a good fantasy novel, and so far Rhodes’ Falling Kingdoms series has not disappointed! In the third novel, the royals, the rebels, the Kraeshians, and the watchers will all work towards achieving their own goals in controlling the fate of Mytica. With magic now on the table, all factions will stop at nothing to gain the power that will let them control the vast kingdom.
Waiting for Christmas may seem like forever, but I’m sure this book will be worth it! Learn more about the book here.
