Holiday Wish List

December 21, 2015

kat1The holidays are upon us, and since I work in retail, the holidays are upon me like a plague. I like lots of things about the holidays, but the being on my feet running after things for 8 hours a day… not my favorite part. Although, sometimes I can help someone find that perfect book for someone and that is awesome. (I’ve sold complete sets of R.L. LaFever’s Theodosia series as well as Stephanie Burgis’s Kat, Incorrigible series in the last week!)
But, in all the craziness, I have, in fact, had time to think about what books I wish someone were going to get me for the holidays. So, I thought I’d share with you so you could see what I, in the midst of all the books in the store, want to take home. girl

Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart
I’m not even entirely sure what this book is about… A woman who has been in hiding and has to defend her family farm from a gang? Maybe? I don’t know. But I’m judging books by their covers these days and this one looks awesome. I love the 1910’s and women with bobbed hair and handguns (Miss Fisher, I’m looking at you,) so it just makes sense.

Carter & Lovecraft
by Jonathan Howard
Former homicide detective, Daniel Carter, has inherited a bookstore and a bookseller who happens to be the last direct descendant of H.P. Lovecraft (who was a terrible man, but that’s a different post) and is deeply uninterested in a new boss. As people start dying around them, it turns out that Emily’s progenitor may not have been writing fiction after all…
You know I love Cthulhu-related stories. Especially with female protagonists. Plus, I already love Howard’s work from the Johannes Cabal series, so this just makes sense. tfa

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Visual Encyclopedia by Pablo Hidalgo
Do I really need to say anything about this?

 

What books are you hoping to get before the end of the year?
