I am really excited to take part in Read Now Sleep Later's Winter Wishlist.
It is such a beautiful idea. The first week is where you post the things that you would like - books and such to read. The second week, you post things you would love to gift to other people. The third week, you write about a non-profit for bookish things. I think it's lovely, and since it is winter, and it is even cold where I live (it's almost never cold here), I figured this would be a great way to warm my bones.
Apparently, the holidays for me is a time to read really creeptastic books.
The Knife of Never Letting Go is a place where everyone can hear everyone's thoughts? This is already caked in drama from the start, but then your main character starts getting pursued by trackers. Oh great, now where could he possibly hide?
The Road - talk about your worst nightmare. Trying to protect your son in a post apocalyptic world? Horrendous. I hear things about this book, snippets and pieces that always intrigue me... And I really want it.
We Have Always Lived in the Castle - you had me at labyrinth and possibly murderous. Possibly murderous? Really? "Possibly?" This means I have to read it just to know if they are murderous or not, forget the rest of the plot line ;)
Carrier of the Mark - I have seen this book everywhere, I feel... except in the Los Angeles libraries. (Really, Los Angeles? Really?!) I've seen so many posts about it, that I just have to read it. And besides, I'm a sucker for supernatural romance.
As far as bookish things go, I'm not really in need of anything anymore - since I have a feeling that my husband has finally gotten sick of me using our flashlight as a book light. ^_^
But after blog hopping and looking at the other lovelies things, I remembered the super awesome nerdiness that is book ends. Specifically these book ends (thinkgeek.com likes to squeeze every penny from my wallet... *sigh*):
Read Now Sleep Later) for all the details!
