Today’s Topic: Books I Hope Santa Brings/Bookish Wishes
Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl
Life got away from me somehow when That Artsy Reader Girl hosted the book wish list this past summer. But I absolutely love the idea of a community of book lovers gifting each other stories, so I’m excited to participate in this Christmas version. I am looking forward to playing Santa to some of my fellow book lovers!
Books on my Amazon Christmas Wish List
(mostly in order of most wanted)
Siren of Sussex
I don’t care what she writes, I will always read anything Mimi Matthews publishes. I’m particularly excited because this book features a hero who was a side character in one of her earlier releases.
A Heart Adrift
Frantz is one of my top authors for historical romance and specializes in pre-Revolutionary tales. This one features a second chance romance between a chocolatier named Esmeé and a sea captain named Henri. Scrumptious!
An Appalachian Summer
I’m a sucker for stories set in the Smokies and this author writes really good ones. I’m particularly interested in the concept for this one about a wealthy heroine who chooses to walk away from her privileged life in Depression era Kentucky.
As Dawn Breaks
Breslin wrote one of my all time favorite books (For Such a Time) and I’ve been a fan ever since. She generally only publishes ever couple of years and I’ve been eagerly anticipating her newest historical release.
The Gold in These Hills
Bischof writes beautifully lyrical stories. This is her first split-time tale and I’ve been wanting to read it for months!
Never Leave Me
I may have mentioned I’m a fan of time-travel stories. This is a sequel to Come Back to Me (which I loved!). I’m excited to see where all the characters are and to read a story the sister of the heroine of book one.
Every Word Unsaid
I was so impressed with the author’s debut novel and her love for India which stands out in her writing, that now I want to read every book she writes. I’ve always found the culture clash present in British-Indian history fascinating.
The Brightest Star in Paris
Biller’s debut novel The Widow of Rose House was one of my favorite reads last year. And since I love Paris and history, I’m interested to learn more about a time in its’ history (the Siege of Paris) which I don’t see often in fiction.
Kendig has long been an author I follow. She writes fast-paced, thrilling stories with lots of globe-trotting adventure. This is the last book in a series I’ve been waiting to start, because I want to read all the books together.
At Summer’s End
I’ve been intrigued by this book, since I first saw the cover. Set in 1920’s England, it gives me Downton Abbey vibes.
Things We Didn’t Say
I keep hearing amazing things about this debut tale featuring a female translator for a German POW camp during WWII. I’m always curious about this less discussed portion of U.S. history.
