My Book Depository Wishlists

I read a lot of books. Which, for me, also means I buy quite a lot of books. English books are just not that accessible to me any other way, since I live in the Netherlands. I will share some tips on how to access books for cheap or even free sometime soon, but that’s for another day!

Mainly, I keep track of what I want to buy through Book Depository wishlists. I have an elaborate (but not necessarily well-structured) system for how to organize those that I thought would be fun to share! (This will be a fairly long post though, so buckle up!)


The reason I’m sharing this post today, is that I was just approved to be a Book Depository affiliate! This means that if you order from Book Depository through my affiliate link, I’ll receive 5% of the proceeds at no extra cost to you. This way, you’d make it possible for me to review more books, as well as host more giveaways! From now on, if I link to a book on my blog, I’ll be using my affiliate link, and you can also find it in my Instagram and Twitter bio, as well as in the sidebar on my homepage. The link is: https://www.bookdepository.com/?a_aid=anniekslibrary.

I’d be very grateful if you used this link!


Adult Fiction

I’ve mainly sorted my wishlist by release date (for preorders), age group, and genre. This helps me decide what I’m in the mood to buy, so that I don’t have to go through the entirety of my wishlists when I want to buy a few books.

The first list, because the system is alphabetized, is adult fiction, this includes most genres, and just consists of any books I’d like to buy/read that are aimed at adults.

Some examples of books on this wishlist are:

  • Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi, which I’ve heard great things about
  • Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin, because I loved the Netflix show
  • Broken Records by Lilah Suzanne, which I read as an eARC and really enjoyed

Freshwater


Alice in Wonderland

Something you may or may not know about me, is that I collect different editions of Alice in Wonderland. Through a wishlist, I keep track of editions I’d like to add to my collection one day.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland


Anthologies

I only recently added a wishlist for anthologies, just because I really want to read more of them. Three anthologies on my wishlist are:

  • Black Enough, edited by Ibi Zoboi, which I’ve been wanting to read ever since it came out.
  • Summer Days and Summer Nights, edited by Stephanie Perkins, which I’m hoping to order and read this summer.
  • Hungry Hearts, edited by Elsie Chapman, which is a recent release I would love to read.

Black Enough


August

My August wishlist is for book on my radar that are coming out this month. This doesn’t mean I will actually preorder/buy all of these! I usually pick a few books that I’m most excited for, and move the rest to one of my other wishlists. This, like my other wishlists, is mostly a way for me to keep track of what books are out there that I would like to read at some point.

A few books that I’d love to get in August are:

No Big Deal


Barnes & Noble Classics

Like Alice in Wonderland editions, I also like to keep track of Barnes and Noble leatherbounds I would like to have one day. I don’t typically buy these often, but every once in a while there will be a sale and I might order one. The handy thing about these wishlists is that you get notified when the price drops.

Fairy Tales from Around the World (Barnes & Noble Collectible Classics: Omnibus Edition)


Boxed Sets

This wishlist is mainly meant to keep track of boxed sets I would like to add to my collection one day. I don’t think I’ve actually ever ordered anything from this wishlist, but it’s just a way to remember and then I can check if there’s a sale on them anywhere.

The Lord of the Rings Boxed Set


Children’s Books and Middlegrade

Some middlegrade books on my wishlist are:

Hurricane Child (Scholastic Gold)


Classics

“Classics” is another wishlist I hardly ever order anything from, and that I mostly keep as a reminder. To be very honest, I haven’t read very many classics over the past few years, so it’s not really any use to buy new ones.

The Once and Future King


Collection Update

This wishlist is for books I’ve already read, or for books I own but would like a different edition of. These might be books I accidentally got in the wrong edition, or books I’ve read and loved as an audiobook or an eARC, or got from the library.

Some examples:

  • Autoboyography by Christina Lauren, which I used to own as a paperback, but really want to get as a hardback.
  • One Giant Leap by Heather Kaczynski, which is the sequel to Dare Mighty Things, and I loved as an audiobook.
  • Royal Rescue by A. Alex Logan, which I read and loved as an eARC because it has amazing aroace rep.

Autoboyography


Coloring Books

I mean, I know these aren’t technically books, but I do like coloring books, and there are a few I’d like to get at some point!

Harry Potter Magical Places and Characters Colouring Book


Comics and Graphic Novels

This is one of my longer wishlists, which currently has 96 titles on it. I recently ordered a bunch of graphic novels, so I probably won’t do so again until I’ve finished all of those, but here’s a few examples of graphic novels I’d love to get next time:

Sheets


Contemporary

This wishlists holds all of the YA contemporaries I would like to read at some point. This is another one of the longest wishlist, which is currently at 107 books. Some examples are:

Dress Codes for Small Towns


Harry Potter

I’ve been collecting different editions of the Harry Potter series for a few years now, and every once in a while, I’ll order a new copy to add to my collection.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone


Nonfiction and Memoirs

I’ve recently been getting more into nonfiction, so this is another of my latest wishlist additions. Some examples of books on this wishlist are:

Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race


Poetry

I don’t read a lot of poetry, but I do get in the mood for it sometimes, so I recently made a wishlist for poetry books as well. I’m hoping to pick up a few of them soon. Some examples are:

Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately


Preorders

This is one of my most used wishlists, as it’s how I keep track of what books are coming out. I always add to this throughout the year, mainly based on the Goodreads lists with monthly releases. Some of the books on this wishlist are:

Loveless


Puffin Hardcover Classics

Because this collection of children’s books is the absolute cutest, I decided to collect these. But I have to admit I haven’t ordered any new ones for months, possibly for over a year. I just have to read the children’s classics on my physical TBR first!

The Wizard of Oz


September

Some of the September releases on my wishlist are:

His Hideous Heart


SOON

Because some of my wishlists contain so many books, I’ve made a separate (shorter) wishlist for the ones I’m hoping to order very soon. Some examples are:

When The Ground Is Hard


YA Books/Standalones

These last two wishlists are probably the biggest, because they have most of the YA books that I still want to read at some point. I divided these in standalones and series. These are some of the books on this wishlist:

The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza


YA/Fantasy Series

This last wishlist has all the YA and/or SFF series that I’m still hoping to get to. Some examples are:

Timekeeper


How do you keep track of the books you want to buy/read?

  1. Congrats on the affiliation approval!

    Your system for keeping track of things seems a lot better put together than mine.
    I largely rely on goodreads and people yelling about books they’re excited about as release date approaches.
    I also use the sticky notes application on my desktop with a note per month but it’s honestly such a mess. I’ve definitely been known to try and pre-order a book a second time before I see the previous order sitting there. I did this in the last week. I honestly could use a better system LOL

    I also cannot wait to read His Hideous Heart!

    1. Thank you!! I use these wishlists more than Goodreads for my TBR, and I usually add books people yell about to my (preorder) wishlists right away!

      Sticky notes do sound fun! I might have to do something like that in my bullet journal 🙂

      I’m just so excited for His Hideous Heart!! It sounds incredible

  2. You have some super good looking books on your TBR! I’ve been eyeing His Hideous Heart lately as well, and I might break down and get it. Want by Cindy Pon was such a good book – one of the easiest books I ever read. Congrats on being the affiliate – I will definitely make sure to try to use their links if I order!! Great post! 😊
