TBR Tuesday: Christmas Wish List!

New feature! On Tuesdays, I’ll share books I’m reading or want to read. Come share your TBRs!

Sad but true: in my family we’re dependent on Amazon Wish Lists to make Christmas gifts easier. So here are 10 books on my Amazon Wish List this year:

Nonfiction: for writers

The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression by Angela Ackerman & Becca Puglisi

We Are Not Alone: The Writer’s Guide to Social Media by Kristen Lamb

What does this say about me? I’m super picky about what writing books I pick up, having read so many. These are two I don’t have.

* In the time between writing this post and finalizing it, I found out I’ve won a copy of The Emotion Thesaurus in a drawing. How cool is that?! But still on my list because it’s pretty awesome.


Endlessly by Kiersten White

Much Ado about Magic by Shanna Swendson

Feedback by Robison Wells

Mind Games by Kiersten White

Transparent by Natalie Whipple

What does this say about me? I read a lot of YA spec fic and otherwise magical stuff. This is particularly weird considering that I don’t write anything like that.

Nonfiction: research

Thwarting Enemies at Home and Abroad: How to Be a Counterintelligence Officer by William R. Johnson

The Craft of Intelligence by Allen W. Dulles

The Craft We Chose: My Life in the CIA by Richard L. Holm

What does this say about me? I’m researching the CIA and tradecraft. ;)

In general, I’m very picky about what I put on Christmas wish lists. I don’t want my loved ones to waste their gift money! I try to pick only books that I’m pretty sure I’ll love.

What books are on your Christmas wish list? Why? Come join in the conversation!

Share and Enjoy

    My TBR is about 480 books long. What does that say about me? haha

      LOL! I measure my TBR in feet, but it’s not nearly that many physical books. Now, ebooks? Yeesh….
