I’m home on maternity leave, and this means a few things: I don’t get a lot of sleep, my day is broken up in to frantic moments where I try to get as much accomplished while Freebird is sleeping, and when I am able to get a moment on the computer, I’m shopping online because I’m not supposed to take the small unvaccinated man out into the wild world of crowds, germs, and head colds.
So I’m doing me some serious online shopping, and I was wondering: What books are on your holiday list this year? What books do you want to receive – or, better yet, what books do you want to give?
Personally, I tote a book with me all over the house and I’m reading in snippets as I feed, change, soothe, lather rinse repeat. I keep looking at my giant copy of Northern Lights which has been squatting on my TBR for months, mostly because my arms are too puny to cart it around. But most of my reading is the ARCs and review copies authors and publishers are kind enough to send me.
But I’m also eyeing Janet Evanovich’s Alaska romance Manhunt (which would be a nice thematic reading series with Roberts’ big ass hardback, also set in Alaska). After a quick survey of the Amazon.com new releases recommended for me based on past purchases, I also noticed new MaryJanice Davidson issues, as well as a late-fall release from Eloisa James and Nora Roberts (who has both new and re-releases out).
Who else is coming out with new books you crave for the holidays? And what’s your book that you think everyone must read, and that, if you had the money, you’d buy a copy for everyone you know (at least, everyone you know and like enough to buy books for)?
