Christmas Books

I got a whole load of fantastic books

The Flanders Panel - Perez-Reverie Lauren always manages to find a new author for me which is fantastic. This is a historical thriller which is my favourite genre
Ordinary Heroes - Turow A book offered a few months ago on First Look which looked interesting
The Potato factory - Courtenay My favourite author
Blueberry Muffin Murder - Fluke Unfortunately I have this one soooo I will get Peach Cobbler Murder instead
A Breath of Snow and Ashes - Galbadan I have been waiting a long time for this one
Julie & Julia - Powell This was offered in a recent swap and it sounded so good. I love to cook and this is right up my alley
The Concrete Blonde - Connelly The next book in the Rosch series
Silent Prey - Sandford Another series almost complete
Face the Fire - Roberts My oldest wish. I also gave Lauren her oldest wish. Great minds think alike
Unfit to Practice - O'Shauhnessy A wishlist book
Shutter Island - Lehane I read his Drink Before the War for a friend and fell in love with his writing
Remind Me Again Why I Married You - Ciresi Sounds like some much needed fluff
Bones of the Moon - Carroll Another wishlist book
The Ninth Life of Louis Drax - Jensen I have wanted to read this book for a long while
For One More Day - Albom A recently released book from an interesting philosophical author

Hi - fellow blogging chick here.

One of your entries referred to "Lehane"...I assume you're talking about Dennis Lehane?

If so, good pick. He's a good writer.

Lauren said...

Yup it is Dennis Lehane - I bought that book for her! :)

Thanks for stopping by.

I figure my daughter Karmyn will get "A breath of Snow and Ashes".

I haven't even read the previous one.

Those books are SOOOOOOOOOOO long.

Your list looks fantastic. I need about 10 more hours a week, no make that 40. Just to read.

More time to read would be fantastic!!

Wow, nice haul. I've got the Flanders Panel on my own wishlist, so I'll be curious to see what you think of it.

and since you like historical thrillers, next time I see a copy of Last Kabbalist of Lisbon, I'll send it to you!

Dana said...

Thanks, Susan!!! I think that the Historical thriller is my absolute fav genre
