The number one book that I have at the top of my Christmas list right now is the 20th Edition of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I fell in love with the show Outlander this year and after finding out that it was based off of a series, this is definitely a must-get book for my collection. I especially love the design they have for the 20th Edition. It’s absolutely gorgeous! Outlander is the story of Claire Randall who finds herself taken two centuries back in time. There’s everything you need in this series. You have romance, action, politics, humor and it’s simply fantastic from what I’ve seen while watching the show. I can’t wait to read this book and the rest of the series.
Another book I put on my Christmas list this year is Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. The reviews on this book alone made me want to try reading this book. What I hear is that this book is like no other and it’s a totally new reading experience. This book is set in the year 2575 where there is an invasion causing Kady and Ezra to evacuate. What makes this hard is the fact that they broke up the morning of said day. From the reviews, I get the sense that his book could be quite the game changer when it comes to reading. I can’t wait to find out if it is!
In another genre, one of the books I have on my list is Jewels of the Sun by Nora Roberts. The first books I’ve read by this author are the ones in her Cousins of O’Dwyer trilogy. I absolutely loved the magic and the Irish setting was stunning. I tried reading another book by her but I felt it didn’t get to me the way I wanted it to as I missed the way Nora painted beautiful Ireland. A close friend of mine just bought Jewels of the Sun from her Gallaghers of Ardmore trilogy and she said it was amazing. She went through all three books in no time at all and I felt like this should be the next book I read by her.
There are many more books on my list including An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir, Dangerous Lies by Becca Fitzpatrick and The Lake House by Kate Morton. I will have a Christmas Book Haul post sometime after the Holidays as I will be very excited to talk about the new books I will receive!
