WIN the Top Five Books on YOUR Christmas Wishlist.

Win the top five books on your Christmas wishlist. Not my top five or anyone else’s top five. Just dream up the five books you would most like to land in your postbox this Christmas and they could be yours.

It sounds too good to be true but such is the happy news that I have been asked to spread courtesy of the holiday elves over at

Bookwitty Holiday Contest.

Create and share your holiday reading list for a chance to win the books on it! To enter the contest, simply:
1-Sign up at
2-Create a reading list of five books that you want for the holidays by clicking on Add content/Reading list.
3- Link your new reading list to the topic page: Holiday reading list contest.
And you’re all set! The winner will be announced on December 23rd. Good luck!
This is a sponsored post. I will receive a bundle of my most longed for books in return for sharing with you the opportunity to do the same. With enormous difficulty, I have narrowed down my top five to:
1. Everything I Told You by Celeste Ng.
 I don’t know a thing about it but this comes highly recommended by a trusted fellow-reader of similar tastes to my own. (Greetings California!)
2. Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley.
This one comes with a recommendation from Chris Cleave who, you may have noticed, is my literary hero of 2016. (If you haven’t yet read Everyone Brave Is Forgiven, put it up there at the top of your list. My review is behind that link if you need to know why you must read it).
3. The List of my Desires by Gregoire Delacourt.
A book about a slightly lost and just-a-bit overweight woman in her forties who starts a blog and dreams of owning a Chanel handbag…sound familiar?
4. Contemporary Knits by Carol Feller.
Because, when I’m not reading, cooking or knocking back sloe gin over the holidays, I intend to be knitting. Mind you, I don’t see that gin should necessarily present any obstacle to knitting.
Because, ’tis the season for something lovely.
If none of those is quite your cup of tea I suggest you take a look at this inspiring list of  books too beautiful to buy for yourself (almost) or this mouth-watering selection of super-extravagant cookbooks. As booklists go, one of my favourite ever is this list of ideal gifts for people you secretly hate, which just goes to show that I’m really not a very nice person at all.
Go ahead, think of five books you really want. Then click over to and enter the contest.
Wishing you luck!

  1. The List of my Desires is the only one on this list that I’ve read. It deserves it’s place here. The other three novels are new to me but you’ve piqued my interest 🙂 Hope your equilibrium has returned x
