All I Want For Christmas 2016

It's that time of year again, guys: holiday time!  I love this time of year.  Not only do I get to go back home to visit family, there's tons of yummy food, cozy holiday lights and decorations, and some extra time to sit back and read!  Because of this, I always end up needing more and more books to so a large portion of my holiday Christmas list is books!  I have quite a few on my list this year so I wanted to share them with you guys!

1.  Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte 
I have never read anything by Emily Bronte.  In fact, I haven't read a whole lot of classics.  One of my goals for 2017 is to expand my reading a bit more and include some older novels.  I've always been interested in reading Withering Heights and I've heard it's a great book so I'm giving it a chance!

2.  Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer
I've never read another book by Jodi Picoult but I recently got Off the Page, the second book in this series, not realizing that there was a book before it (whoops).  I really wanted to read that one so now I am patiently waiting until Christmas when I will (hopefully) be gifted this book to read!

3.  The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I know, I know.  How have I not read this book yet?  Honestly, I have no idea.  But I'm excited to hopefully get it for Christmas!  I've heard amazing things about it so I really want to give it a chance.

4.  Amy & Rodger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
This is one that I think I maybe kinda have a vague recollection of reading years and years ago but I'm not 100% sure and really want to read it so I've added it to the list!  I enjoy Morgan Matson's books so much so I'm looking forward to this one, definitely.

5.  Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
I actually heard about this one while in the YA Literature class I took this last quarter.  My professor so really interested in it and it sounds amazing to me so I can't wait to see how it goes.  

6.  Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay
I'm starting to realize that a lot of the books on my list are from a couple of years ago . . . oh well.  But yeah, this one sounds awesome!  I honestly don't remember hearing much about it around the time it released but I'm a sucker for retellings and this one is supposedly like Game of Thrones??  So yeah, I'm in.

7.  Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers 
So, another one I vaguely remember reading but I have no idea where my copy is and I really want to read the next books in the series but need to reread this one first.  So I'm hoping I get a copy of this one for Christmas!

8.  The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski
I've been on a contemporary kick lately and NA books are my guilty pleasure so of course I had to have one on my last!  Very excited to get this one and can't wait to read it!

Those are all the books on my Christmas list this year!  I really am looking forward to hopefully getting a couple of them.  What books are you guys asking for this holiday season? 


  1. Oooo, Ashtyn. Princess of Thorns, Wolf by Wolf, and Grave Mercy are GREAT choices. I loved Grave Mercy! That whole series is awesome. I hope you get the chance to read/obtain these!

    Happy holidays. =)

    1. Oh, I'm so glad to hear that! I'm really excited for Grave Mercy, especially so I'm happy to hear you liked it so much!

      Happy holidays to you, too! Thanks for stopping by!
