Even at 36 years old, I still love making my “Dear Santa” wish list. Every year, that list is made up mostly of books. When I was younger, my mom would always do the “big present” along with smaller ones. One year, my brother asked for a single expensive item, but I couldn’t think of anything, so I put tons of books on the list. My “big present” that year was a huge box filled with all the books I asked for. Well, times are tough these days, and this year I’m focusing all my energy on making sure Jake has a great Christmas, so there may not be much under the tree for me. That’s fine, as long as my little boy is happy, I’m happy. But I still love making my lists! These are just a few of the books I’m currently wishing for (the ones that are out or will be released before Christmas, anyway). What’s on your list? I’m always looking for great book recommendations!
