♥ A Reason for the Season ♥







So my son, Eli, who is three, asks every day we get in the car to listen to the "shopping" song. [see above] If you watch it, you'll see it's not exactly a shopping song and last year he called it the "Christmas" song. But I love it, he loves it, and Zoe, who is almost a year, can be heard making noises right along with it. We go through more of the Straight No Chaser Christmas CD as we drive into town ~ he also loves the "five golden rings" song, the "Grinch" song, and the "Rudolph" song. Then I get to choose. lol  Eli's excitement is contagious ~ he's even got my husband excited to listen to Christmas music! (shocking!)

I am looking very forward to next week when we get to open presents with the kids. Eli is super excited about what might be under the tree (my secret hope: he loves his book the most... anyone think I'll get my wish?).

Anyway... back to books now:

Wishlist Wednesday is a meme hosted by Pen to Paper where you post a book that has been on your wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that you can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto your wonderful shelves.

How do you join in?
  1. Pick a book from your wishlist that you are dying to get to put on your shelves.
  2. Do a post telling your readers about the book and why it's on your wishlist.
  3. Add your blog to the comments at the bottom of this post.
  4. Put a link back to Pen to Paper somewhere in your post with a note saying that Pen to Paper is the host of the meme.
  5. Visit other blogs and enjoy.
  6. (Note from Pen to Paper): Please consider adding the blog hop button to your blog somewhere, so others can find it easily and join in too. Help spread the word! 
This week's choice...

Aside from Between the Lines, this is the only other Jodi Picoult book from the last 7 years that I don't own. There's only a few from before that I don't own. I haven't read the last three books, including this one, but I certainly plan to. I think I just needed a break from the heaviness for a bit. :)

Any books that you want to add to your shelves? Leave a link or just a comment below!  :)

Smiles,
B

  2. I had never heard of Jodi Picoult until Between the Lines came out. I should check her out.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks you, as well. ;)

      She's been writing for at least 15 years, but I think it's closer to 20+. There are some great ones, in my opinion, and some good ones.

  4. I've heard of Jodi Picoult before and I see her books everywhere, but I have yet to read one myself, I think I should pick up one of her books sometime.

    1. If you do be prepared for serious and most of the time controversial topics. :) She is a great writer and makes it worth the emotional ride though.

  5. Picoult's books seem really popular, I'll have to start them myself :)

    Hope you get it soon :)

  6. Can you believe I've never read a Picoult book? I'm not one for the really emotional books. I love them after I finish them but I can't make myself read them when I know they are going to be sad!

    1. I can believe it. Knowing how emotional/serious they can be is what stops me from picking up her latest in recent years. lol ;)

      Thanks for following. :)

  7. I haven't read a Jodi Picoult book in several years. The Pact was the first one I read (and as a parent, it gave me nightmares -- incredible book). Maybe it's time to give her more recent books a try!

    1. They are really well done. When I was The Pact I was not yet a mother. I think it would be an entirely different reaction now if I read it. :)

  9. With regard to part "A" of your post, does that mean I shouldn't have gotten your son a device to shoot tiny marshmallows at people? =)

    Right now I want to read *everything* so I can't pick one ... When I get busy (like around the holidays), I start CRAVING the books that are taunting me from my shelves. They seem to have magical magnetic book powers ... But hope you get to yours soon ;)

    1. HAHA... no, you definitely should have. I am really excited about that one. :)

      I understand when you crave things like that. :)
