Christmas Wonder Hop
ย Celebrate the Wonder of the Season! Visit all of the blogs to see what they love most about the season and which books have made their Christmas wish lists! There’s a giveaway at each stop so be sure to visit them all!
ย Hop dates–Dec 1-31st
Each blog will post about what they’re looking forward to during the holiday season plus which books are on their wish list or “gotta get for friends” list.
Each blog is responsible for their own giveaway on their blog stop.

Last Blog Hop of the year guys and gals!

First off… thank you to Anna for once again being so freaking Awesome and setting this up! That’s right. A capital A! She deserves it!!

With the holidays around the corner my wish list has grown quite a bit but I always have my normal things on there. Puzzles are a number one for me. I just love putting them together. 3d puzzles are amazing but sadly I do not really have the space for them.

As for books I have not really set up a Christmas list for them. I was able to get the second to The Rosie Project from Netgalley and that alone has me in a tizzy. I cannot wait to get to it!

I also start my first psychology class and the hubby will be here for Christmas. So I think my Christmas wishes are already true!


For the giveaway I wanted to give out something fun but useful. So many things crossed my mind; Books, Starbucks gift card, chocolate and coffee gift baskets! I ran the gamut of what would be great for the holidays but also something that I would want myself.

I came up with a super simple solution. Not everyone likes chocolate or coffee (omg!!) but we all love money! So, this giveaway is for an Amazon gift card to use however you wish this holiday season.

    I’m happy to share this holiday with my husband and my friends, with maybe a few books or giftcards as gifts. I also like to give things from my garden (we garden year-round in the SF Bayarea!).

    • Christina

      Sounds like you have a fabulous holiday coming up! I hope it is wonderful! I would love to garden but I think I have a brown thumb! The soil here is terrible so I really need to learn more about balancing. Definitely a to do for next year. And what a lovely gift to give! That’s awesome!

    I wish for A Dragon’s Family Album by Thea Harrison this Christmas. Thanks for the giveaway.

    • Christina

      Ohhh! I haven’t heard of that one but just by the name, I love it! Good luck!

    • Christina

      Any in particular? I’m reading Unbroken before the movie comes out! Really excited ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Christina

          Trust me, you are not alone with the huge wish list. I think all book lovers have an inordinate amount of books on their wish lists! It’s more fun that way.

  3. H.B.

    I don’t have any particular wish for the holiday. I mean I always hope that my family will be safe and healthy. Happy Holidays =)

      Records! That’s a fun gift. One of my friends has hundreds! I don’t know how she knows how they are all arranged on her shelf but every time she goes right to the one she wants. Amazing that collecting records is a serious thing! Too fun!

    You can never go wrong with an Amazon gift card! Thank you for the chance to win it.

    • Christina

      What an awesome present! I swore off e-readers until I started serious blogging and then I knew ebooks were the way to go. Now I don’t go anywhere without mine!

  5. BookLady

    I love receiving books for Christmas and gift cards for my Kindle. Thanks for the great giveaway. Happy Holidays!

    • Christina

      Aren’t gift cards great? I used to think they were not personal but with all the new gadgets sometimes they are the BEST way to go!

    • Christina

      Wow! I seriously have to look that up now! Good luck in the giveaway!

  6. JeanMP

    I would like giftcards, that way I can buy the books I want, not what my husband thinks I would like.

    • Christina

      This sounds like me and my hubby. He is way into fantasy and space stuff, think Star Wars. He recommends books all the time and I just smile and nod. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Christina

      My hubby took me shopping for Christmas one year and we got so many clothes. I just loved it! So much fun. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Christina

      Awesome! I wish I lived closer to my family but sadly we have to Skype!

  7. Jaime Lester

    All that I really want for Christmas is books. That is pretty much my only request! My family doesn’t even ask me what I would like anymore, they just know! Thanks for the giveaway and Merry Christmas!

    • Christina

      That’s awesome. My family got my list the other day and of course I had B&N and Amazon GC’s on there. I also paint and want to get into watercolor so I throw in Michael’s GC as well. But they normally know exactly what I want ๐Ÿ˜€ Makes it easy doesn’t it?

    • Christina

      Are you out of work or don’t like your job? I’ll send lots of happy thoughts your way!

  8. Renee B

    I really want the new Kindle Voyager for Christmas, but I know I’m not gonna get it. ๐Ÿ™ We will wait til after Christmas and see if the price goes down some.
    Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

      Kindle Voyager? I’ll have to look that up. Sounds like fun. My Kindle is over 2 years now so it’s going to need replacing soon!

    • Christina

      That sounds like a good request! I’ll send you lots of luck! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Christina

      Are you looking for a specific kind? I have the Kindle Fire and I do love it but it’s not great for outside. I need to get a glare reducer!

    • Christina

      Everyone is getting Kindles this year! That’s awesome! Good luck on the giveaway!

  9. Michelle DeLeon

    My Xmas wishes are pretty simple. Good health and happiness for my family and friends and hopefully a new kindle!

    • Christina

      That sounds great! My Kindle is almost on its last leg! Going to need one soon also.

  10. amy bowens

    I promised myself I wouldn’t buy any books until after the new year so no I have a long list so, I’m hoping to get an amazon gc

  11. Calla Walker

    Lots of books I want to preorder next year ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s a start on next Christmas probably lol

  12. Jan Lee

    I would have liked a new winter coat but Christmas is over so will have to ask the Easter Bunny lol

  13. Nana Prah

    To be truly honest, I’d like people to be kinder to each other. Not just for the day, but for the rest of existence.

    • Christina

      Ahhh! The best wish of them all. It’s nice when we see people being kind to each other, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜€

    Besides wishing for good health for my family, I sure would love to get more books! Thanks for the chance to win!

    I asked Santa for a new pair of snow boots. My current boots donโ€™t zip up all the way anymore and when you live in South Dakota, snow boots are a necessity.
