Dear Santa…

I’d like to think I’ve been good this year, but I suppose only Santa knows whether that’s true or not…

    The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is the only major Bronte novel left that I haven’t read. Maybe next year? I hope you find all of these books under the tree later this week, Rory, Merry Christmas! 🙂

      Me too, I’ve seen the movie. I vaguely recall maybe starting the book, but I definitely need to reread it.

  • Christine @ BookishlyB

    The Sherman Alexie has been on my normal “wish list” for years. I don’t know why I haven’t gotten it, considering it’s probably something I could read while making sure Sawyer doesn’t kill himself or destroy my house. The Indian Killer was so good!

    • Rory O’Connor

      I haven’t read that one, but I loved The Lone Ranger and Tanto Fist Fight in Heaven.

    Santa knows everything hehehe. Great list! I hope you’ll get some of these for Christmas this year! 😀 Happy reading! Here’s my list

  • Rachel

    I just read the Diary of a Part-Time Indian for my grad school program (I know right lol) but it was really good. I hope you are able to read it soon and get some others on your list here, too. Have a wonderful holiday!

    My TTT-

    • Rory O’Connor

      I told a class on young adult literature in my grad program, so I completely get it!

  • Lindsay @ Lindsay’s Library

    Have you not read “The Library at Mount Char” yet?! I feel like it’s right up your alley!

    • Rory O’Connor

      I know, right?! It’s nearly a perfect literary match.

  • Andi

    Part-Time Indian and Mount Char are SO GOOD! I hope you get ’em!

    • Rory O’Connor

      Me too. Especially Mount Char, as I find the cover gorgeous!

  • MeezCarrie

    Argh. I forgot to add “Ancient Oceans of Central Kentucky” to my list this week. This one intrigues me mainly because I live in Central Kentucky lol. My TTT

    • Rory O’Connor

      It’s very appropriate, in that case!

  • Kate Scott

    The Brontë novel looks great! I haven’t read anything by Anne, nor do I know much about her, but I would very much like to investigate…

    • Rory O’Connor

      That’s my thought as well.

  • Tina

    I haven’t read/heard of any on your list but I am curious about The Library at Mount Char looks interesting. I hope you are able to get some of these under your tree!

    Happy Holidays!


    • Rory O’Connor

      I hope you do as well. Happy New Year!

  • Alice

    The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a gooden! I’ve got Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier waiting under my tree

    • Rory O’Connor

      I loved the miniseries, which I shamefully watched first, but it did convince me I needed to read it.
