This is a weekly meme now hosted by That Artsy Girl Reader. This week’s theme is a Books I Hope Santa Brings. I do treat myself to a lot of books over the course of the year, but I still can’t help asking for some from Santa! I’m hoping I get some of these on Christmas Day!
I’ve read previous books by each of these authors, and am really keen to read other books by them. SO many people have been raving about October, October that I just had to put it on my Christmas list. I loved The Switching Hour by Damaris so am really looking forward to reading her next book, The Creature Keeper. I really enjoyed A Girl Called Owl by Amy Wilson and am really looking forward to going back into this magical world.
If I Were Other than Myself is a collection of poems filled with ‘magical fantasy and dreamlike inventions’ which sounds perfect! I really enjoyed The Children of Castle Rock, so am looking forward to Voyage of the Sparrowhawk which is set after the First World War. The Nowhere Emporium is the first book in this fantasy trilogy which sounds I’ve been wanting to pick up for a while now.
The wonderful Rachael at BellisDoesBooks brought Splinters of Scarlet to my attention, and it sounds like just my sort of book. As soon as I read the synopsis for Cold Tom, I knew I wanted it! Tom is both elfin and human and has been cast out from his Tribe to live amongst the humans – this one has really intrigued me.
I don’t often read adult books, but I’m hoping to get these two for Christmas.
