1. Fire by Krisitin Cashore: This was a really good companion-ish novel to Graceling, and I’m sure I’ll want to re-read it sometime soon!
2. Comanche Magic by Catherine Anderson: This is the fourth sequel in a really great romance series, but it’s out of print, and you can only get used copies for like over $20. For a mass market paperback! Hopefully the author will be able to re-release it soon (like the others in the series), or hopefully I’ll jump from #80 on my paperbackswap wishlist up to #1. LOL. Seriously though, it’d be amazing if someone could find this book for relatively cheap. I really want to read it!
3. The Case for Mars by Robert Zubrin: Thanks to the show Firefly, the idea of terra-forming planets for humans to eventually live on is really intriguing. This book apparently is about how we could terra-form Mars. What a cool concept. And probably necessary, since either over-population, pollution, or global warming will eventually ruin Earth and humanity will need somewhere else to go.
4. Best Poems of the Bronte Sisters: It’s surprisingly hard to find a collection of Bronte poems (by ALL the sisters).
5. The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen: The only one of her books that I don’t own yet.
6. My Antonia by Willa Cather: A classic that I’m sure I’ll want to read eventually.
7. The Awakening by Kate Chopin: Same reason as number 6.
8. My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares: This was a really great love story-ish book, and I really, really, really hope that Brashares writes a sequel soon!
9. The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula le Guin: Or really, any le Guin book that I don’t already have. She’s one of my favorite sci-fi authors.
10. The Antelope’s Strategy- Living in Rwanda After the Genocide by Jean Hatzfeld: He wrote a really interesting book called Machete Season, in which he spoke to some of those guilty in participating in the Rwanda Genocide, so I’m really curious to read this one too.
Merry Christmas and I hope you get all the books you wished for this year!!!
