Helllllo readers – it’s so close to Christmas and I’m hoping Santa will be bringing a couple of bookish surprises, although maybe E-book versions. I have bought too many books over the past few weeks and my suitcase ‘book-shelf’ is threatening to keel over and flood my room. I really need to have a sort out my bookshelves and make some more room – so please Santa bring these but tiny, versions for my incredible stuffed bookshelves!
The Rosie Project (Don Tillman #1) by Graeme Simsion
I’ve seen this book all over the book blogging community but I’m yet to read. Maybe something to get finished over the Christmas Holidays!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before #1) by Jenny Han
This is an odd one but the reviews I have seen so far have ranged so differently I really want to stick my nose in and see whether it’s good or just really awful. #nosyreader
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
THIS JUST LOOKS AND SOUNDS SO FANTASTIC. (If someone is lost as in what to get me this would be brilliant k thnx bye.)
The Girl Who Slept with God by Val Brelinski
Not only have the reviews of this been wonderful but I’ve recently been enjoying books that don’t quite fit genre profiles and I think this would be a perfect follow on for my current bookish ‘hangover.’
The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George
Looks and sounds perfect for me – a book about a bookshop on Paris? GIVE IT TO ME.
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah (Goodreads Author)
I haven’t seen this at all over the bloggersphere – I’m sure it is I’m just looking in the wrong place but an author I adore Holly Kerr said this about it and that’s enough for me to place in on my Christmas Wish List.
This was an amazing book. It’s the first time I had read anything by Kristin Hannah and I was been converted to a huge fan by the end of the first page. The Nightingale was everything I want from a book. Read it!
Orhan’s Inheritance by Aline Ohanesian
When Orhan’s brilliant and eccentric grandfather Kemal—a man who built a dynasty out of making kilim rugs—is found dead, submerged in a vat of dye, Orhan inherits the decades-old business. But Kemal’s will raises more questions than it answers. He has left the family estate to a stranger thousands of miles away, an aging woman in an Armenian retirement home in Los Angeles. Her existence and secrecy about her past only deepen the mystery of why Orhan’s grandfather willed his home in Turkey to an unknown woman rather than to his own son or grandson.
^ This blurb immediately fills me with bookish urges. There’s so much intrigue woven in there, it sounds like a really exciting and interesting read.
Did You Ever Have a Family by Bill Clegg
I think this book could be a really weepy read and I haven’t read one in such a long time. It sounds like a beautiful read and one that will be really lovely to review for MLBB.
Days of Awe by Lauren Fox
If you haven’t seen this book on Goodreads go and have a wander – the reviews are brilliant, the quotes are wonderful and I think this would be perfect in my stocking!
The Heart Goes Last (Positron 0) by Margaret Atwood
This final book popped up on Goodreads and I just thought the premise was so new and exciting and like nothing I’ve read before it will (hopefully) give me a book to gush over again and again! This might me my most excited book to read that’s why I’ve left it till very last!
If any of my friends or relatives are stuck any or all of these books would be perfect gifts! Now someone pass the eggnog.
