Winter Wishlist: Week 1 - All I Want For Christmas

Welcome to Winter Wishlist, the fun seasonal meme that my co-blogger over at Read Now Sleep Later dreamed up. This is just a fun little meme in the holiday spirit of giving and getting. The first week (Dec 6 - 12) is all about YOU and what you're hoping Santa leaves under your tree this Christmas. For more info or to sign up, visit the Winter Wishlist page.

Week 1: Write about Books or Bookish Things that you would love to get.
Week 2: Write about Books or Bookish Things that you would love to give.
Week 3: Write about a charity/nonprofit/community group that works with books and/or literacy.

Books & Book-ish Fun

  • Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey - This one is high on my list because of the gorgeous cover. I just love the design and the flower petals scattering. I hope Santa brings this one for me. 
  • The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - Another great cover (hm I am beginning to sense a trend here)  
  • Witchlanders by Lena Coakley - I've been wanting this one for awhile now. I've heard great things and it has has a beautiful cover.

  • Penguin Embroidered Classics Books
  • Black Beauty, Emma, The Secret Garden - The first batch of the new Threads collection by Penguin. I am a crafty gal and these embroidered covers call out to the crafty/literary nerd in me. I don't have a huge attachment to Black Beauty so that would be lowest on my list but Emma or Secret Garden would be fantastic.

  • Unveiled (Turner #1) and Unclaimed (Turner #2) by Courtney Milan - I read Unlcoked, a novella in this series recently and really liked it. Would love to read some of Milan's full length stuff.
  • Angel's Flight by Nalini Singh - I'll pretty much read anything by Nalini Singh. This is a compilation of short stories from the Guild Hunter series. One of the stories is brand new. I defintely want.

  • Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling- I think Mindy Kaling is just hilarious and she seems like she would be an awesome friend. I'd like to read this book and pretend that we're besties.
  • Habibi by Craig Thompson - There hasn't been a Craig Thompson book in awhile. This one looks gorgeous and epic.
  • Blood, Bones & Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton- Another great cover. I love to cook and think this memoir looks fascinating.
One can't live on books alone (though I try) so here are a few non-book but book related wishlist items.

  • Mighty Bright Kindle light - I actually haven't done a ton or research on lights but recent blackouts have made me aware that it's good to have a backup light source for my kindle. I can save the ice cream from melting in the freezer and read while I wait for the power to come back on.
  • Threadless t-shirt in Storytellers - This thing is so adorable and I've had my eye on it for awhile now. Gotta love book-ish t-shirts! While you're there, check out all of their other awesome shirts.
  • Colossal Kidney - OK, this has nothing to do with books. But it's adorable. Uh I can cuddle it while reading. Yeah, that's it. 
So that's my (abbreviated) wishlist. Thanks for humoring me. If you'd like to share your Winter Wishlist, sign up on the linky list below and stop by next week for some more gift ideas


  1. I just got the Unbecoming from the public library. I'm so ready to coop myself up for a weekend with some hot cocoa and read it :)

  2. Thanks... now that Mariah Carey song is running through my head. No, really THANKS, I love that song! LOL!

    Great stuff... now I want everything from your list also, except the Storytellers shirt which I already have in pink :D
