Now that the countdown to Christmas is underway, let’s take a look at my Christmas wish list this year.


My Bookworm Wish List 2016

Terri and Alton Brown christmas wish list everyday cook alton brown

I just found out this week that Alton Brown has a new book coming out. Alton Brown is my Food Network hero. I used to get home from work just in time to watch Good Eats. I learned so much about the science behind cooking watching that show. So at the top of my list this year is Everyday Cook by Alton Brown.

I started listening to The Song of Fire and Ice series a while ago. I thought I was lucky enough to find book 4 at Half Price Books, but I was sorely disappointed when I found out the initial audiobook was released someone else recorded it! So I’m still in need of a copy of A Feast for Crows recorded by Roy Dotrice because that other dude is NOT the same.

Other books I wouldn’t mind having on my shelf at Christmas time…The Delphi Effect by Rysa Walker, both Illuminae and Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Oh, and we can’t forget Heartless by Marissa Meyer.

Check out these other books on my Wish List.

My Wish List

Outlander Kitchen: The Official Outlander Companion Cookbook
The Interminables
The Watchmaker of Filigree Street
The Dark Missions of Edgar Brim
Tent City

My Outlander Wish List

I live in Iowa. It is cold in Iowa. Heck, I’m always cold especially in my office. I’m also a HUGE Outlander and I’ve been fascinated with the fingerless gloves that Caitriona Balfe wears on the show. And I found some beautiful ones on Etsy made by KnittinKittenNC. Check ’em out.


Book Dragon

My Coffee Addict Wish List

I’m a huge fan of PaperFury’s designs on Society6. I splurged in August and got a skin for my MacBook designed by Queen Cait. I think, I need a matching mug that screams my love for books and blogging. Don’t you think?

Or this mug would be nice

Or this one

Or this one

Hmmm…maybe I need to drink more coffee…


My Blogging Wish List

Sometimes I’m out in the world and don’t have my trusty Macbook with me. It hard to type an entire blog post on my phone (I’ve tried it and I ended up with cramped hands). I would love to have a wireless keyboard to use with my iPad mini. And I’ve got my eyes on this one…

I wouldn’t be opposed is someone wanted to pay my hosting bill or help me pay for Co-Schedule (LIFESAVER!).I wouldn’t mind setting up a few more zaps via Zapier either.




My Ultimate Wish List Item

One of my co-workers got me hooked on Hamilton and I have been listening to it non-stop for months. So my Ultimate Wish List item this year would be tickets to see Hamilton.

  1. Oohh that’s quite the wishlist! Yea I’m with you on having Heartless on my wishlist even if I didn’t actually write down books heh.

    • I’ve been participating in this round of #OTSPSecretSister and doing a bit of holiday shopping for family members so I’ve got wish list stuff on the brain. I thought I would struggle coming up with a list, but it ended up not being a problem obviously. I thought of something I wanted to add yesterday while out shopping. There will be 2017 Calendar for Hamilton. MUST GET MY HANDS ON IT NOW!

  2. Awww, I’m so glad you like my design! MY DAY IS MADE. ? *beams happily* Also omg I’m not ready for Christmas and the year to be over! Still so much to do. EEEEK.?

  3. Man! You’ve made me want to go back and amend my wishlist, Terri! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love your book wishlist…I grabbed The Delphi Effect at BEA so I know why you want it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And I love the book-themed items like the mugs and the fingerless gloves. I’d volunteer to knit a pair for you but my version isn’t near as fancy. They are really nice in cold weather though – even indoors for when your fingers get cold while working at your laptop. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And I would LOVE to see Hamilton!!! My kids are obsessed with Hamilton so I get to listen to the CD A LOT. I know all the music as I heard it all summer long. LOL

    • I am obsessed with Hamilton! Will you be watching the PBS documentary on the 21st of October? Check your local listings!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and pick up a copy of Newsweek. They came out with a special issue last week and IMO, for fans, it is worth $10.99. And there’s going to be a 2017 calendar…

      • Yes! I can’t wait for the documentary! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll have to find a copy of Newsweek – my kids and I will love that. And a calendar??? I’ll keep an eye out. My younger daughter would be fit to be tied with a Hamilton calendar. LOL
