It’s the last day for Outlander Week! It’s been such a fun week for me and it certainly made the time pass until the next episode of the new TV show, which airs tomorrow! And did you hear? It’s already been renewed for a second season! I’ll definitely have to go back and reread all the books once I make it through these last ones! Only a few hundred pages left and I’ll be halfway through the series! Only 4 more books to go!

Today it’s all about the STUFF I want that’s all about Outlander! Not surprisingly, there are tons of things out there and with me only owning the books, I’m just grazing the surface. Here are a few of the things on my Outlander wishlist:
I wish I had this NOW! It would be perfect to read after finishing Drums of Autumn! From the Goodreads page:
Now Diana Gabaldon has written the ultimate companion guide to her bestselling series, the book only she could write – a beautifully illustrated compendium of all things Outlandish. As a special bonus for those who are eagerly awaiting the next appearance of Jamie and Claire, she includes never – before – published excerpts from upcoming works in the series. And there’s lots more in this lavish keepsake volume for the many devoted fans who yearn to learn the stories behind the stories:
• Full synopses of Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, and Drums of Autumn
• A complete listing of the characters in all four novels, including extensively researched family trees and genealogical notes

• A comprehensive glossary and pronunciation guide to Gaelic terms and usage
• The fully explicated Gabaldon Theory of Time Travel
• Frequently asked questions to the author and her (sometimes surprising) answers

• Tips, personal stories – even a recipe or two
• Essays about medicine and magic in the eighteenth century, researching historical fiction, and more
With the insight, humor, and eye for detail that has made her novels such an outstanding success story.
Doesn’t that sound AWESOME?
You mean I can have Jamie not only in print, but on TV and in graphic novel form? Yes, please! I do love a good graphic novel! From Goodreads:
Diana Gabaldon’s brilliant storytelling has captivated millions of readers in her bestselling and award-winning Outlander saga. Now, in her first-ever graphic novel, Gabaldon gives readers a fresh look at the events of the original Outlander: Jamie Fraser’s side of the story, gorgeously rendered by artist Hoang Nguyen.
After too long an absence, Jamie Fraser is coming home to Scotland—but not without great trepidation. Though his beloved godfather, Murtagh, promised Jamie’s late parents he’d watch over their brash son, making good on that vow will be no easy task. There’s already a fat bounty on the young exile’s head, courtesy of Captain Black Jack Randall, the sadistic British officer who’s crossed paths—and swords—with Jamie in the past. And in the court of the mighty MacKenzie clan, Jamie is a pawn in the power struggle between his uncles: aging chieftain Colum, who demands his nephew’s loyalty—or his life—and Dougal, war chieftain of Clan MacKenzie, who’d sooner see Jamie put to the sword than anointed Colum’s heir.
And then there is Claire Randall—mysterious, beautiful, and strong-willed, who appears in Jamie’s life to stir his compassion . . . and arouse his desire.
But even as Jamie’s heart draws him to Claire, Murtagh is certain she’s been sent by the Old Ones, and Captain Randall accuses her of being a spy. Claire clearly has something to hide, though Jamie can’t believe she could pose him any danger. Still, he knows she is torn between two choices—a life with him, and whatever it is that draws her thoughts so often elsewhere.
Step into the captivating, passionate, and suspenseful world of The Exile, and experience the storytelling magic of Diana Gabaldon as never before.
I was totally going to add the Lord John books and Written in My Own Heart’s Blood to my list BUT I ordered those this week. AND after I ordered the Lord John books, I found two for $1 each in pristine condition at a book sale! Win!
