Top Five Books Santa Didn’t Bring

It’s the curse of the bookish: no one buys you books for Christmas because no one knows what to get you. This is the first year I haven’t received even a gift certificate though! Luckily, I’m taking part in a secret Santa with my fellow Edmonton book bloggers next week. Here’s my wish list:


  • Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan because it’s shiny.
  • Tampa by Alissa Nutting because it’s fuzzy, though must give a shout out to that paperback cover!!
  • Omens by Kelley Armstrong because crows creep me out so much but this cover calls to me.
  • Christmas Stories edited by Diana Secker Tesdell¬†because it out Goldfinches The Goldfinch. Also just realized Tesdell has edited a whole bunch of these collections and I want them all!
  • War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy because I need a classic in here, and I think it might be time… I hear rumblings about a readalong and Norm’s Book Club keeps tweeting about it.

I hope you all got what you want for Christmas!
