Top Ten Books I Really Want To Find Under The Christmas Tree

This is going to be a good one!  I’m a book person, obviously, since I do have a book blog.  While it’s mostly books, I’ve included a few non-book but book-related things.  Because why not?

  1. Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones.  Even though I’ve already read this book, I still want a copy to have on my shelf.  That cover is absolutely beautiful.  And it is one of my favorite books from this year.
  2. The Court Of Fives series by Kate Elliott.  I’ve read this series, but sadly, I don’t own them.  So I’d love to see them under the Christmas tree this year.
  3. Pretty much any book about Tudor England.  I have quite a few, and there a lot more I actually want on my shelf, but I’m far too lazy to actually give some titles.
  4. So while this isn’t an actual book, it is book-related.  I have a few of the wax melts from this Etsy shop, and I’d love more!  Frostbeard has some amazing scents and who wouldn’t want to read a book while the scent of Christmas At The Burrow wafts by?
  5. How To Cook Everything by Mark Bittman.  The King Arthur Flour Cookbook is my go-to for baking, and while I have a ton of cookbooks, I’ve heard really good things about his books, and this one seems like a good one to add to my collection.
  6. These donut mugs are adorable, and they are the perfect vessel for some coffee or tea to have next to me when I am reading.
  7. Also, I’d love to feel like I’m in Kowalski’s Bakery when I’m reading.  It looks like bubbleandgeek has a lot of awesome bookish candles…so while Kowalski’s Bakery really speaks to me, I’d be good with any of the candles.
  8. Pretty much any book that’s about Norse mythology.  I’ve had this idea for a re-telling of Norse mythology meets Little Red Riding Hood for a while, but I know nothing about Norse mythology, so it’s been on hold for a while.  Hopefully, some books would help figure out what I should do with this idea.
  9. The Bread Baker’s Apprentice.  I’ve had my eye on this book for a while, because I’ve always wanted to try baking my own bread.  This book seems like it would be a good guide.
  10. Crochet Ever After: 18 Crochet Projects Inspired By Classic Fairy Tales.  I love to crochet, and since I’m a fan of fairy tale re-tellings, this is a good way to make some really cool fairy tale inspired items.
