Hey Wickeds – inquiring minds want to know: What books did you get for Christmas? Or maybe you got a gift card to a bookstore – so what books will you buy? Tell us so we can get some ideas for our own list!
Julie: I bought myself a Christmas present–of Steamed Open and Murder on Cape Cod! It was so much fun to go to Barnes and Noble in Annapolis with my sisters, and buy both books while seeing other books by the Wickeds in the wild. I also bought my mother both books, and my sisters bought them for themselves.
Edith: Yay! Thanks for the pic, Julie, and for spreading the love around.
Jessie: For the first time in ages I did not receive a single book for the holidays! I’ve decided to go ahead and order a few things for myself including the latest by Ann Cleeves and also Inspiralize Everything by Ali Malfucci.
Barb: We had thirty people at our home for Christmas dinner, all members of my husband’s extended family. One of the highlights of these Christmas parties is our absolutely vicious, all-book Yankee Swap. I ended up with My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante, which I was happy I got to keep. because I’ve been wanting to read it.
Edith: Hugh kindly gave me a Haruki Murakami collection of stories, Men Without Women, because it was highly spoken of. I dutifully started reading it, but it didn’t grab me (like, do I want to read about men without women? what was he thinking?), especially with Louise Penny’s Kingdom of the Blind waiting for me. He agreed I can return it – goody! So I’ll pick up a Lauren Belfer historical novel, instead (see tomorrow’s post…).
Sherry: I gave my husband Micheal Connelly’s latest book, Dark Sacred Night. I love his books and so does my husband. It’s a win win for me. I have a gift for a hard to by for man and then I get to enjoy it as well.
Liz: I got Becoming by Michelle Obama, in a Secret Santa swap in my building. So excited! And a dear friend from work gave me Marianne Williamson’s A Year of Miracles, which is an awesome add to my morning routine.
