Christmas Shopping

So, I know for sure that I am getting a gift certificate to the bookstore for Christmas. I decided yesterday that I was going to make a list of the books that I would like to buy with this gift certificate. Upon completion, I have decided that it is the 'you wish' list, instead of a plausible shopping adventure. I felt the need to share.

Daughter of York by Anne Easter Smith - Comes out on February 12th
Mistress of the Sun by Sandra Gulland - Comes out on February 19th
Lords of the Bow by Conn Iggulden - Comes out on January 7th
Extraordinary Canadians: Nellie McClung by Charlotte Gray - Comes out on March 18th
Bleeding Dusk by Colleen Gleason - Comes out on February 5th
I've Got a Home in Glory Land by Karolyn Smardz-Frost - Out Now
The Gathering by Anne Enright - Out Now
Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs - Comes out January 2nd
Spectrum 14 by Cathy Fenner - Out Now
Midnight Alley by Rachel Caine - Out Now
The Serpent's Tale by Ariana Franklin - Comes out on February 5th
The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery - Out Now
The Welsh Girl by Peter Ho Davies - Paperback Comes out December 19th
Fortune's Fool by Mercedes Lackey - Paperback Comes out February 1st
Sealed Letter by Emma Donoghue - Comes out April 15th

Some of them come out too far after Christmas to really count, but in any case, too many books is my opinion! At least I have a list to choose from, but it is still interesting how I always manage to want lots of books when I have a gift certificate, but if I walk in the bookstore here I can never find anything I want. Just goes to show you that the selection here sucks!


  1. don'tcha just love the "waiting list"? I have a list of 8 that come out in 2008... drives me crazy waiting!
    Here's my "waiting list"
    Dragon Outcast
    Conan Doyle
    Dragon Harper
    Search for the Red Dragon
    Before they are Hanged
    Wisemans Fear
    Inheritance series last book

    sheesh... can't they just publish faster?!

  2. Before they are Hanged is out in Canada already, so if you really wanted it you could order it in. :)

    But, yeah, I wish things could publish faster too!

  3. Blue Castle is one of my absolute favourites. :)

    And Deslily - The Inheritance series has picked up an extra book. So the next one actually won't be the last one. :)

  4. I have Blue Castle on my pile of 'to read' books. Maybe I can squeeze that one in next year as a bonus read for Annie's challenge.

    Of course I am advocating for Spectrum 14 as your first choice, of course!
