For those who don’t know me, I’m Zoe and own my own blog over at The Book Lovers. Today, I’ll be letting you know which books I am excited to be getting this Christmas – courtesy of myself buying them for me!
For people that know me, you know that my kindle is my baby and that if I want an ebook, I just go to Amazon and 1-Click it…I admit, I am a 1-Click addict and my wages are mostly spent on me not understanding a little thing called ‘Savings’, but books are technically savings to me 😉
My parents don’t buy me books for Christmas and that is mainly down to me. Ever since I had a kindle, ebooks are just instantaneous. If I want a new book, I’ll go search for one on Amazon and download it; if I want the paperback of that book, well it’s either not available or I have to wait months for it to become available. I have no patience – hence why I dont ask for books for Christmas.
Also I only buy the paperback copies of books that are a favourite of mine….and despite not receiving books from the ‘rents, my grandparents HAVE to buy me one every year so this year I had decided that they can buy me The Edge OF Never – J.A Redmerski…This is MY favourite book and I have yet to purchase it, so what better way than opening it up from my grandparents on Chrsitmas day?
The three books that I am excited for this month, for myself to buy as a present are:
1) The Sweetest Game (#3)– J. Sterling
“It’s one hell of a sledgehammer to the chest when your baseball career comes to an end. It’s like you finally realize that baseball never loved you back. All the sleepless nights, the hours spent at the gym trying to stay fit, the conditioning, the training, the mental preparation, the holiday’s missed, the birthday’s passed, the memories you didn’t get to make with your family…all for what? It’s not like baseball lost any sleep over you. She didn’t stay awake for nights on end trying to figure out how to make you a better player. She didn’t care. Baseball’s a business. A sport. A game. And as much as my entire life has been wrapped up in it, it’s time to let it go.”
– Jack Carter
Out on Christmas day!
2) A Beautiful Wedding (#2.5)– Jamie McGuire
You know that Abby Abernathy unexpectedly became Mrs. Maddox. But what do you really know?
Why did Abby pop the question?
What secrets were shared before the ceremony?
Where did they spend their wedding night?
Who else knew about it . . . and didn’t tell?
Everything about Abby and Travis’s elopement was top-secret . . . until now. Fans of Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster will get all of their questions answered in this whirlwind tale of the wedding day (and night!)—and as with all good stories, this one will definitely have been worth the wait.
Out the 10th December
3) Castle Hill – Samantha Young
Braden Carmichael never imagined he’d fall as hard and as fast as he did for Jocelyn Butler. He also could not have anticipated how difficult it would be to convince her to give in to love. But now that he has her, he’s never letting go. He’s got it all planned—the passionate proposal, the dream wedding, the sexy Hawaiian honeymoon—even the perfect family they’ll start.
After trying to flee from her painful past, Joss is finally allowing herself to embrace the future. But when things start moving faster than she anticipated, she finds herself panicking over something Braden can’t understand. After everything they’ve been through, Joss is sure that their love can survive even her worst fears. But, this time, she may push Braden too far—and risk losing everything all over again…
Out 3rd December
