This week’s TTT, is a holiday guide freebie. I had contemplated things besides books to buy for your book lover, books for children, books for the hubby… Instead I chose to write my top ten(ish) books on my wishlist.
My Top Ten(ish) Books On My Wishlist :
1. The Sword of Shannara, The Elfstones of Shannara, & The Wishsong of Shannara by Terry Brooks illustrated by Mark Simonetti published by Grim Oak Press.
I have to admit that my first Terry Brooks book was the Ilse Witch which my husband lovingly read aloud during bedtime many years ago. He grew up on the Shannara series and we are fortunate enough to have his Grandfather’s copies of the above listed. When we found out that a leather-bound, signed by author and chosen artist, copies of them would be produced we were excited. Unfortunately they are limited editions so I have no idea if we will get the opportunity to get them but if we could, we would. I have no doubt they will be amazing.
I love the Graveyard Queen series by Amanda Stevens. This one will be read as soon as I can get my hands on it. Eventually I will own a hard copy of all of them. I don’t mind my nook or using my phone because it’s really nice to have hundreds of books with me on something so small but nothing replaces the feel of holding a book in your hands. I enjoy these enough to have both hard copy and e-book.
The Kate Daniel series by Ilona Andrews is one of my favorites. I own these in paperback and they are worn from how many times I have read them.
I adore this book. The copy I have has been beaten up by my youngest. I would love to replace it with this edition.
I’ve heard so much about this book and series I would love to actually read it. This is another one that I will read as soon as I can get my hands on it.
I’ve read this whole series and love it! I have all the books in paperback but this one. That needs to be fixed. Also, I haven’t marked it as ‘read’ yet on Goodreads. (chuckles) I think it’s time for a reread. 😊
I am pretty sure that I have read this despite it being on my ‘want to read’ list on Goodreads. Either way, I own all the paperbacks of this series but this one. This also needs to be fixed. If you haven’t read this series, it’s pretty funny.
8.Sixth Grave on the Edge, Seventh Grave and No Body, Eighth Grave After Dark, The Dirt on the Ninth Grave, and The Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones
I’m really…really far behind in this series. I need all of these to catch up. (Yikes!) If you haven’t read the Charley Davidson series you might want to give it a try.
I have yet to read this book and it’s been on my TBR list for years now. I really enjoyed the movie but usually books are better so I have been wanting to get this one for a while.
This is another one that has been on my TBR list for too long. I really enjoyed the movie so I have wanted to read this that much more. How can you go wrong with a zombie version of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice?
