Happy Blogmas Day 11!
When my family ask me what I want for Christmas the answer is always books, books and more books! It’s got to the point now that they refuse to buy me anymore books because I’m running out of room on my bookshelves! Nevertheless I still like to make a list, just in case they change their minds! I also thought I’d share my list of books I’ll be giving as gifts this Christmas, just incase anyone needs any last minute ideas!
Books on My Wishlist
From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout – Ever since I heard about this series, I had to have it! For the past month however I’ve been on a book buying ban so I’m praying that my sister gets me this series for Christmas! I’ve never read a JLA book but I’ve heard nothing but praise for her action packed storylines and alluring characters!
A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire by Jennifer L. Armentrout – From what I’ve heard, I’m going to want to have the sequel ready and waiting for me when I finish!
The Bone Criers Moon by Kathryn Purdie – I always say that I’m going to buy this book next but then something else catches my eye and I vow to buy in next time, it’s a vicious cycle! Even if I don’t receive this book it’s 100% going to be on my shelf by the end of January!
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson – As many of you know I’m obsessed with Brandon Sanderson and I’m eager to start another series! After looking through all of his series I decided I was craving more high-fantasy rather than sci-fi and settled for the epic that is the Stormlight Archive. I can’t wait to dive back into the wonderful world he creates and to meet a new and exciting cast of characters!
Books I’m Giving as Gifts
Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid – I had no idea that this story was inspired by Fleetwood Mac so I had to order it for my friend Amy! Between us there has been many karaoke renditions and bad dancing to some of their greatest classics so I’m hoping this book will bring back some good memories! Plus I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book and I’m secretly hoping that she chooses it for Book Club next year!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – Every time I have a Zoom call with my friends they always ask me if I’ve managed to unhaul any of my copies of the Hunger Games, as I’ve got three copies of the series all with different and special covers! It’s not even my favourite series but teenage Amy clearly had an obsession! I’m now down to two copies of the trilogy (which according to my friends is still two too many) so I thought I’d share the love and send them a personalised copy to keep of their shelves FOREVER!
Unpublished Letters to the Daily Telegraph edited by Kate Moore – This is a go-to gift for my Dad, and a perfect way to reflect on this disaster of a year. This is a collection of unpublished and refreshingly witty letters that The Daily Telegraph receive each year and provide a typically British take on the year.
In Bed with a Highlander by Maya Banks – And finally it wouldn’t be Christmas without gifting a steamy highlander novel to my best friend, Grace! I’m always on the hunt for a trashy historical romance and I think I’ve hit the jackpot with this one, I’m even a little jealous and might have to grab a copy for myself! Maya Banks’ beguiling new trilogy features three unforgettable brothers risking everything to save their clan and their legacy—and to surrender their hearts to love.
