Santa is coming! But it’s always hard for Santa to buy a book for me. All the books I really want are already pre-ordered as soon as they hit Amazon’s virtual shelves. But, of course, there’s always SOMETHING I can come up with that Santa could bring!
1. William Shakespeares Comedies, Histories, and Tragedies (1632)
If I’m going to dream, I might as well dream big, right?! I’m a HUGE Shakespeare nerd (if you haven’t guessed) and I love antique books. This particular book costs more then I make in… well… more than a year. *ahem* But it’s so pretty with gilt pages and leather binding!
2. Dali: The Paintings by Robert Descharnes , Gilles Neret
Salvador Dali is my favorite painter. I love surrealism and how you can see different things in the paintings each time you look at them. This particular book is supposed to contain pictures of ALL his paintings.
3. Strings, Conformal Fields, and M-Theory by Michio Kaku
Another of my infamous geek-charged additions? Very. Michio Kaku is the co-founder of String Field Theory and is a professor at City University in New York. I’m very into physics, despite my loathe for mathematics, and have read a few of his lighter books already. I doubt I can keep up with this text, but I wouldn’t mind Santa dropping it off and giving it a go!
4. Doctor Who: The Secret Lives of Monsters by Justin Richards
No, my geek side isn’t quite finished. Justin Richards puts out the best Doctor Who novels and collectable books, and I’ve been dying to get my hands on this one! (so has my niece and nephew!) In the book, “alientologist” Justin Richards gives out classified UNIT and Torchwood files all about the monsters seen on the show. Love it!
5. White Rabbit Chronicles by Gena Showalter
The first book hit my TBR list right when the book was announced, but I never got around to picking up the darn thing. I still really want to get into this series as I’m intrigued by Alice with zombies. :3
6. #Nerd by Cambria Hebert
This is the basic hot jock bets to date a nerd, falls for the nerd, and then really dates the nerd story line. *sigh* I love these stories. Simple and so predictable, and yet I can never get enough of them.
7. Postcards from Asgard by Amalia Dillin
A young girl is terrorized by demon-like goats, then falls in love with the man who tends the goats. The man happens to be the slave of Thor, the one and only Thunder god, and the girl decides to defy Thor for her love of the slave. Wow. Of course I want!
