I know you’re a busy guy. Especially with your big ride through the sky coming up. So, I’m not going to add to your list of last minutes gifts to buy on Amazon. You’ve got to be the real reason they do so well – and not the Kindle. Just kidding. I’m sure you make all your toys from scratch, just like I make all my holiday cookies.
I was thinking you might be looking for a good book to read during pit stops. Or late at night, if you’re not snoozing by the fire. Or if you’re stuck on the design for a new toy. Here’s just a few of my choices for you.
WAKE by Lisa McMann
I haven’t quite figured out how you know what everyone wants, but in case you struggle with that, this book offers a suggestion. Just fly over people’s houses during the night, pop into their dreams, and see what they want. Just watch out for the naked and I’m falling dreams, because if this happens up in the sleigh, you really could be falling.
HOW TO SURVIVE A GARDEN GNOME ATTACK by Chuck Sambuchino
You might want to know what your impish relatives are up to. With the publication of this book, people will be prepared. You really should know what you might be up against this year. Ya know, just in case. Or you might want to pass on a few of your entry/exit tips to the gnomes. Are you even related to gnomes? Not sure about that one.
THE NAUGHTY LIST by Suzanne Young
I’m sure you don’t really put anyone on the naughty list. Right? This book might help you out in that area. Or maybe not. You might find some helpful tips on protocols and guidelines for deciding who’s naughty.
And this last one is for Mrs. Claus.
PERFECT CHEMISTRY by Simone Elkeles
No doubt you know that paranormal romance is hot right now in the YA book market. By the way, do you print books up in the pole? Have you ever thought about being a literary agent? Just wondering. If you ever need a ghost writer for your memoirs, shoot me a DM on Twitter. I’m sure Mrs. Claus is up to ears with paranormal creatures – as in she’s practically married to one. Again, are you an elf or a dwarf? Or a short man? And she probably gets tired of dealing with elf problems in the factory.
Anyway, she’ll love this contemporary romance – no elves, vampires, or werewolves, I promise. Alex Fuentes is plain hot but very realistic, flaws and everything. In fact, he’s probably been on the naughty list before. And it’s also a wonderful story of sacrifice for the one you love, and I’m sure she sacrifices a lot in her position. I suggest a weekly date night with her to keep up the old romance. And Santa, that doesn’t mean a tour through the factory. Please.
Hope you enjoy the suggestions. Do you wear a parachute when riding in the sleigh? Just wondering.
I’m sure Santa could use some more suggestions. And all the elves might be looking for gift ideas too.
great picks! I’m sure Santa thanks you for your help:)
Great suggestions. Most of these are on my TBR pile (which is huge!). I actually did a report on gnomes as a child. It was a research report in fifth grade. And I researched gnomes. Everyone else did “real” things! I was very into them for some reason.
Katie – Santa already dropped me a line saying thanks and promised extra goodies in my stockings. Hopefully books. 🙂
Kelly – Some people really get into garden gnomes. I’m sure they’re eating up his book!
I’ve read all the YA books on this list and loved them all. Great taste Laura. 😀
This looks like a good list! Hope Santa is paying attention!
Love the books you suggested for Santa! Happy Holidays!
Santa’s always watching so I’m sure he’s seen this post already! 🙂
Cute idea! One of these days I’ll get around and read WAKE. I had the book and was planning on reading it, but it got lost in the mail. Maybe Santa can bring me his copy after he’s done reading it.
Tee Hee. There are so many funny lines in this post, I can’t write them all here! I’ll tweet instead, so more can enjoy. Thanks!
Thanks everyone! Off to visit your blogs!
Thanks for the shout-out 😀
Santa should definitely bring you PERFECT CHEMISTRY, it’s a good book.
Great list. I love WAKE for Santa. That’s just great.
Interesting list! Would love to read Chuck’s book.
Woo hoo! I’ll bet Santa and Mrs. Claus are blushing! If he DM’s you with answers to your questions, be sure to post them so we can tell our kids 🙂
Good list, I copied them down 🙂
I have the garden gnome book. (My mom gave it to me…we have a running garden gnome joke in our family)
It is very funny!
