This week’s theme at ThatArtsyReaderGirl is all about bookish wish lists for the holidays! I will be heading over to others posts to check their wishes and see if I can help grant any, at least a couple is my goal. While my TBR and Bookish Wish List is huge, here are ten random picks to make up my list of bookish gifts I’d love to see under the tree this year, or well at any other time will do too! I do hope Santa is listening, and knows that I have been nice this year 🙂
Technically, we did not put up a tree as I was dealing with one family member after another being sick (including my allergies), and then we had planned to spend the holidays in Vegas watching for the first time ever, a Cirque du Soleil show (Ka) followed by a couple of days at the stunning Arches National Park. But with holiday plans completely doing a flip on us when my DH caught whatever had been going around and making travel a no-no (even on a road trip), I decided to improvise at the last minute and make it more festive at home.
Note: thank you to Danielle at Grey Skies and Rainbow Highs for the inspiration for my decor.
Bookish Gifts I’d Love to See Under the Tree
Pride and Prejudice: Marvel Illustrated
The Pride and Prejudice Marvel Graphic edition I just finished reading! I read the digital version and I know I will enjoy the physical book.
The House on the Cerulean Sea
I really want to read this book now after having seen it praised by so many book bloggers and well, seeing it just everywhere I go online 🙂 And the cover, the description, the title – just about everything appeals. While other commitments kept me from getting to this read, I know I will love it.
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue
This book has been on my must-read list ever since it came out. The storyline is so very intriguing, and then there is a hidden bookstore as well, like icing on the cake. I so very much want to read this soon, like now, but it has to wait for a bit.
I am yet to read the book and of course this series; somehow I haven’t read the series or the author till today and hope to remedy that soon. Well, as soon as I get all the Cybils reading done for the year (not that I keep sidetracking myself with other reads constantly anyways). But Meyer is high on my list of must read soon.
Kobi Yamada is an author I know I will want to read anytime. I read “What Do You Do With an Idea?” a while ago, and it is truly perfectly executed. With this book, the first line of the description (well, also the cover) was enough to draw me in even if I had not read Yamada before. It goes like this: “You are the only you there ever has been or ever will be.”
The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse
Everything about this book is simply asking me to get it for myself; and well, maybe also gift it to someone.
Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones
I borrowed this book from the library a couple of years ago, and implemented some of the suggested changes. They worked for me! But somehow, I let things slide again and I hope that keeping this right next to me to refer to whenever will help bring about more of the remarkable results I want!
The Writer’s Toolbox
For inspiration. That is it! And maybe for family game time too?
Book Nooks for the Bookshelf
There are so many cool book nooks, and so very creative. While I am thinking I might want to build one all by myself, that is unlikely to happen anytime soon so for now, any of the really wonderful book nooks available to buy will do!
A Bag to Hold it All (well, not the book nook!)
Considering the many things I need to carry around with me, well, as the carry-arounder-of-all-things-in-general, and books, of course, this book bag will be perfect, don’t you think?
