All the books

When Mr Meet-Cute asked me what I wanted for Christmas I was all "ummm, aaaah… I'll make a blog post about it!" Then I started thinking about all the books I'd like, though I'd also like lots of free time to read them in (hurry up hols!!) Perhaps you or a fellow bookworm need some Christmas/holiday reading inspiration? Here is what's on my 'to read' list.

Funny Lady books:
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling & You'll Be Sorry When I'm Dead by Marieke Hardy

There's something so relatable about Mindy Kaling. I've been enjoying her blog and am sure to enjoy her book too. Same goes for Marieke Hardy's writing in Frankie, and her book sounds hilarious.

 Bossypants by Tina Fey & The Bedwetter by Sarah Silverman

These have both been out for a while now. I guess I've got some funny lady reading to catch up on.

Then Again by Diane Keaton

Diane Keaton is such an icon, but I really want to read her memoir for the stories about working with her friend (and ex) Woody Allen.

 Crafty Books:

Make Hey! While the Sun Shines by Pip Lincoln & Design Sponge at Home by Grace Bonney

Crafty home inspiration from a couple of super blogging ladies.

Great Fiction:
The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides & 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami 

Two novels that would be perfect for holiday reading.

Photography/Music/Coffee Table books:

Autumn De Wilde's book Beck is beautifully designed and has a foreword by Michel Gondry.

George Harrison: Living in the Material World by Olivia Harrison. I bought this for my sister for her birthday and it was quite hard to part with. The dvd of the film the book accompanies would also make a great gift.

And then, how is this for a gift wrapping idea? Would be perfect for a mix of books, cds and dvds.
Cheeseburger wrapping paper. So delicious. More info here.

I'd love to hear your reading recommendations too. Or are there any books you're dying to get your hands on? Let me know bookworms!

  1. Thanks for the heads ups. I like the idea of the burger paper, but feel it would only really work with alot of books or regular shaped objects. Almost too nice wrap things in.
