Over at Bookends HQ, we’re starting to get SERIOUSLY excited about Christmas: mince pies, trashy TV, and hopefully lots of new additions to our TBR piles! 

From feel-good romance to classic horror, four more of our wonderful authors share which books they’re hoping to find under the Christmas tree this year…

Daniela Sacerdoti, author of I Will Find You

I’m particularly book-hungry this year (for a change!), and very much in the mood for light, happy, Christmas stories. I’d love a selection of feel-good, romantic authors like Mandy Baggot, Trisha Ashley, Alicia Kingsley – anything with snow and glitter on the cover and a happy ending! I’ve gone through a bit of a witchy phase with some fantastic supernatural, dark books, so now I’m in the mood for some romance!

Joanna Nell, author of The Single Ladies of Jacaranda Retirement Village

I’m putting The Cactus by Sarah Haywood at the top of my (shamefully long) Christmas book wish list this year. I’m a big fan of the “never too late”message and this book sounds like my perfect summer holiday read for January.

Karen Cole, author of Deliver Me

I want to read Wonder, by R J Palacio, about a boy with severe facial deformities, which has been recommended to me by a friend. I also think The Woman in the Window, by A.J. Finn, looks interesting.

Relight my fire

Joanna Bolouri, author of Relight My Fire

Non-fiction would have to be You Are The Placebo by Dr Joe Dispenza. Fiction wise, Elevation by Stephen King.

Black Friday has been and gone, and we’re in full swing curating our Christmas list. In this latest blog post, authors Erin Kelly, Holly Bourne, Jill Mansell and Beth Good tell us what book is top of their list!

Erin Kelly, author of  He Said/She Said

I can’t resist a cookbook and I’ve heard great things about The Big Green Roasting Tin.

How do you like me now cover

Holly Bourne, author of How Do You Like Me Now?

I collect English language editions of To Kill A Mockingbird so I keep waiting for the day I’m gifted a hardback first edition. They’re only about seven grand and I reckon I totally deserve it.

This Could Change Everything cover

Jill Mansell, author of This Could Change Everything

The New York Times Book of the Dead, please. There’s nothing I love more than a good obituary and this is a selection of the very best. Over the years I’ve probably stolen more tiny character ideas from obituaries than from any other source. (Sorry if that’s a bit weird and unfestive. I’m a big fan of wandering around cemeteries reading the stories on gravestones too!) Happy Christmas!

Winter Without You

Beth Good, author of Winter Without You

Past Tense, Lee Child’s latest thriller featuring Jack Reacher, easily one of the sexiest fictional heroes around. Of course, Jack would never get tied down, so I can read and daydream without worrying about the reality!
