Can you feel the Christmasy season? I know they say 'It's not about the gifts', which is true, it's about the family, the giving and all the gracious things one can do, BUT I can't help but think about all the wonderful gifts I would like to get this season. What can I say? It's a reflex.
What has my eye this Christmas?
1. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
Deborah's site and order signed copies of the book, for no extra cost (Just the cost of the book + Shipping)!!! How cool is that?! Definitely a must have.
2. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
I've always wanted to read this book, but they don't sell it in any Indigo stores and I've been too lazy to order it. I heard it's a real tear jerker (yay!)
3. Touching the Surface by Kimberly Sabatini
This book has been one of Waiting on's since forever! It says that Indigo sells it but none of the stores have it, so I guess it needs to be ordered in as well. Again, this makes me forget and I get lazy!
4. Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
I can't believe I've put off reading this book for so long! I have so many TBR books I guess that I just forget to hunt them all down. Again, this book is available through Indigo but isn't in stores, so it needs to be ordered in (apparently I like very rare books...). I've read some of the BEST reviews for this one!
5. Scarlet by A.C.Gaughen
OK. don't kill me but this isn't avaliable in stores either.... THERE'S A REASON THESE ARE ON MY WISH LIST!!! It's hard for me to order everything, so I just stick them on this wishlist in hopes that someone else will! Anyways, I love a good twist up of a classic tale, and nothing like a hero robin-hood, that is (WAIT FOR IT) actually a chick!!!
6. A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb
I heard this was a difficult and unique book, and it is for that reason that I want to read it. I like challanges and love reading something against the tide of what I have on my shelf,-- and this book would be it. And for one, it's available in Indigo stores! *My Family Cheers*
7. Going too Far by Jennifer Echols
Great reviews. I've had my eye on this one for a while now!
8. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
I like the Mortal Instruments-- not a HUGE fan, but I have read them all and I've enjoyed them-- but I did hear that the Infernal Devices is way better. Plus, I'm a HUGE HUGE HUGE Victorian England Fan girl, and if a book is set in that time period, I will usually read it, no questions asked. Hopefully it lives up to my expectations!
9. A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly
A Historical Fiction that is supposed to be great, but hasn't caught much hype.
10. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
A supposed heart-wretching book that deals with the truth of bullying... defenitely been on my must reads for a while now. it's about time I read it!
Honestly, I could think of a thousand more. But those are what stood out the most for me right now. Personally, I love surprises. I love tearing open a gift & seeing something I never would have guessed to be gifted! That's the fun part.
Let me know what YOUR Bookish Wishlist is!
