Today’s Topic: Books I Hope to Find Under My Tree
Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl
One year for Christmas my mom gave me some jewelry. She wanted me to have some nice pieces that I could wear for years. As grateful as I was, I guess something on my face made her ask, “You would have rather received books for Christmas, wouldn’t you?” To which I guiltily answered, “Yes.”
Every year, my Christmas wish list includes a whole lot of books. Sometimes I get around to buying these books for myself, particularly when they go on sale for Kindle. This year, I’ve requested several non-fiction titles in hardback, since those tend to be a bigger investment. Also, since classic film is my other obsession, these non-fiction titles provide the marriage of two of my favorite things.
Storm Rising – I can never get enough of Kendig’s thrilling, globe trotting adventures.
Until the Mountains Fall – I’ve been loving this series on the biblical Cities of Refuge and am behind on the latest installment.
Miriam Hopkins: Life and Films of a Hollywood Rebel – I find this classic film actress fascinating and want to learn more about her.
A Reluctant Bride – I love stories about strangers marrying and I know this author will give me a well-researched and well-written one.
The Dating Charade – Love the cover and love a good rom-com, not to mention this is a debut.
Capturing the Devil – Can’t wait to read the conclusion to this series which has kept me on the edge of my seat!
Sweet on You – Becky Wade writes excellent and thoughtful contemporary romances. I’ve been dying to read the final one in this series about three sisters.
Gowns by Adrian – I’ve always been a classic film fan, but I’ve recently become very interested in reading more about the costume designers of that era. Adrian was one of the best and worked for MGM.
Irene: A Designer – Another excellent costume designer who worked for MGM, the Cadillac of studios.
Herbert Marshall: A Biography – In my opinion, Marshall is a very underrated classic film actor. I’ve wanted to know more about him ever since I discovered he lost a leg. You can’t tell this at all in his films.
What are some of the books on your Christmas Wish List?
