TGIF: Christmas in July

TGIF at GReads is a fun feature for answering a book-blogging question posed by Ginger.

This week the question is: Christmas in July: If Santa were to come down your chimney in the middle of summer, which books would you want him to leave for you under the tree?

What a fun question!  I have a very long wishlist of books (like all of you, I assume), but I almost never purchase something I can get from the library.  So I limited my wishlist to books I want to read, but can’t check out from the library!

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell– This story about first love by one of my new favorite authors is currently only available in the UK and won’t be released until March 2013 here in the US.  I’d like Santa to pony up the extra dollars so I can get this one to me ASAP.

Can’t Buy Me Love by Molly O’Keefe– I read some really good things about this romance novel and we all know I can’t ever replenish my romance novel supply fast enough.  My library doesn’t have it, so maybe Santa can tuck it in my stocking.  Or you know, in my Kindle.

Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols– A young adult romance that I also keep hearing good things about.  I don’t really want to read Such a Rush so this will at least give me a taste of Jennifer Echols and then maybe I’ll get the hype.  And the library doesn’t have a copy of it.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn– This thriller sounds like a lot of fun and my library actually owns quite a few copies of it.  However the hold list is currently so long it might take until Christmas-in-December before I actually ever see this book!

What’s on your Christmas-in-July wishlist?

One thought on “TGIF: Christmas in July

  1. I haven’t read anything by Jennifer Echols, and while Such a Rush at first didn’t really appeal to me, I really want to check out some of her books. I also HATE library waiting lists! They take forever!!!
