Reader's Holiday Wishlist

It's no secret that my favorite gifts to receive and give are books. Lots of books. And I've asked for a few this holiday season. Here's a few topping off my list:

  1. Hi Kelly, love the new site! I always ask for gift cards for my books. There's nothing like wandering in a book store with a coffe and no kids! It's my me-time and three gifts in one!

  2. Thanks, blueeyedadri! I love it here, too. I'm not sure why I waited so long to create a more YA friendly blog. :)

    Oh gift cards for books are my absolute favorite gifts. I got one for my birthday and had a blast loading up my Kindle. I actually had to take one of the books off this list because I just devoured it in between writing the post and actually posting it. (It was a birthday gift.)

  3. Destined is on mine too! Others are: The Iron Knight, Divergent, Possesion, The Tigers wife, Fire

  4. Hah I'm with you blueyedadri! Gift Cards is where it's at! :) I've already spread the word to my parents that if any family member asks them to just give me a B&N card for my Nook :) SO psyched. Have you guys heard of Under the Never Sky? Sounded interesting. It's a dystopian. I have been eying Goddess Test and Destined lately.

  5. I love this idea, Kelly. My wish is also a book list that I gave to my children in hopes of receiving books I've been drooling over.

    ReplyDelete
  6. LOL, Eliza. I'm adding these to my list right now.

  7. Elizabeth, yes, I've heard of Under the Never Sky. It does look good! I'm with you about the gift card, only I have a Kindle so I want an Amazon one.

  8. JoDee, I gave my husband my book list, too! I hope you get the books you want.

  9. I put the strong hint out for Joyce Carol Oates' book, "Telling Stories," which is based on her seminars at Princeton. Should be a fascinating insight to one of our most amazing and prolific writers.

  10. Hi Kelly, my list is on hold because I have so many unread books on my Kindle. If I had to ask for anything, it would be more time!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Fun question! I've always got books on my Christmas wish list! Some of them: Demonic by Ann Coulter, In Stitches by Anthony Young, MD and Journey to Nowhere by Shiva Naipaul.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Anne, I'm with you on needing more time. Let me know if you get it. ;)

  13. Lynn, thanks for sharing. I'm looking these up.

  14. So this year I bought my 11 yr old a Kindle for Christmas which I am super excited about for her. And The Hunger Games trilogy because she loves it so much she wants to read it over and over, and so do I!

    I'm asking for books on the writing craft as well as Tangled Tides. I'd ask for more books, but I highly doubt I'll get any. :( We have no book store in our area and my family are all last minute shoppers which means no ordering from Amazon.

  15. I buy too many books so I don't really want any more until I read the ones I currently have screaming at me from my bookshelf. I have a huge pile to get through and I don't read very fast!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Rachel, I don't have a bookstore in my area either. :( Oh, I miss my Borders. An Amazon gift card sounds like it would be a good gift for you.

    ReplyDelete
  17. The Desert Rocks, oh I have a huge pile waiting for me too, but I can't help myself. I want more books anyway. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I want everything by Diana Wynne Jones, (LOL!) and everything illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman. (another LOL!) Anything after that is a bonus.

    ReplyDelete
  19. My book-wish is for a book by an author I haven’t discovered yet. Those are the best gifts. A few years back a friend gave me one of Richard Peck’s, and to this day the gift keeps giving… I’ve read as many of his historical as I could find.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Cat, it's good that you know what you like. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Mirka, I love discovering new authors or authors who are at least new to me, too.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just want to get through the books on my current reading pile. I am currently reading the Other Boleyn Sister (loving it) but it wasn't on the list of things to read. What do I do that I wonder? On my list, are the books by Suzanne Collins. I also want Joan Didion's new book and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Brenda, I want to read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer too! Ooh, I'm so excited. My agent is the author of Asphodel and she just sent me a copy. Yay! Merry early Christmas to me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Santa, if you’re listening, I’d like John Green’s THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. I know it doesn’t come out until January, but I’ve been extra good this year. Sort of. Except for that one thing.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bigfoot, LOL! I hope Santa brings you a Christmas miracle in the form of an advanced copy of Green's book.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I want, I want, I want... Darcy & Fitzwilliam, and the Therese Walsh book, and the newest Misty Lackey, and Sueann Bowling's Tourist Trap, and... an eon to read all 'em in.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Beverly, I'll second the eon to read all the books in. :) I hope you get all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great list! There are way too many for me to list, lol. I want to read Destined so bad!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm a book lover, for sure! I just have way too many I want. That's why I love my Kindle. I can carry them all with me.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Courtney, I know. I had a hard time narrowing my list down for this post. So many great books out there.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Donna, I just filled my Kindle with books I bought for my birthday with my Amazon gift card. I'm with you there.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have some of these books on my list too! I am also hoping for Wonderstruck because I am excited to read it- but it is a little pricey for me right now. Also, I would love a gift certificate to the Barnes and Noble near me(or a small local book store). It is such a treat to get to pick out books!

  33. Jess, yes, it is a treat. Books have always been my favorite things to shop for, even as a kid.

  34. I love receiving books, too. There are so many on my list this year I don't know where to begin! The classic Barbara Cooney picture books will be great Xmas gifts, then there's Joyce Carol Oates and Ray Bradbury's books ... and many more.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Claudine, classic picture books do make great gifts. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I read a few of these and some are in my TBR pile. The ones I don't have, I want.

    A book I'm really looking forward to is Beth Revis' A Million Suns.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Medeia, ooh, I'm adding that to my list. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've asked Santa for The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, Frogspell by C.J. Busby, and The Apothecary by Maile Meloy.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I bet somebody will get me a B&N gift card, as usual. :) I'm giving 3 gift cards and 4 books!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hope you get your wish list filled, Kelly. Here's to a wonderful holiday for you and your family.

  41. Marcia, I bought gift cards and books for others too. They are my favorite gifts to give and receive.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've got several of these on my wishlist, as well. I always just ask people to get me an Amazon GC or one for B&N. I want to read the first of the Mortal Instruments series next from my wishlist, I think. I hope you get the books you want!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Shannon, I love gift cards. Seriously, they are my favorite gifts. I want to read the Mortal Instruments series too.
