On My Wishlist

On My Wishlist is a Meme hosted by Book Chick City.  

On My Wishlist is a weekly meme that allows us to share the books we haven't bought yet but are waiting to be bought and devoured. If you are anything like me then your wishlist is getting longer by the day! If you would like to take part and have your own 'On My Wishlist' post then you can find more info here. (This post was inspired by the fab In My Mailbox by Kristi at The Story Siren)

 My on My Wishlist includes books that are older and already out, or brand new. Today I am bringing 
you four books that I am dying to read and get for my book shelves. 

So lets see have here this week...  I well update when I get these books.  There are so many that I 
decided to narrow it sown to just four this week.!

Title: The Hiding Place
Author: Corrie Ten Boom, John and Elizabeth Sherrill
Genre: Biographies & Memoirs, History
Publisher: Mass Market Paperback

 Corrie ten Boom was a woman admired the world over for her courage, her forgiveness, and her memorable faith. In World War II, she and her family risked their lives to help Jews escape the Nazis, and their reward was a trip to Hitler's concentration camps. But she survived and was released--as a result of a clerical error--and now shares the story of how faith triumphs over evil.

For thirty-five years Corrie's dramatic life story, full of timeless virtues, has prepared readers to face their own futures with faith, relying on God's love to overcome, heal, and restore. Now releasing in a thirty-fifth anniversary edition for a new generation of readers, The Hiding Place tells the riveting story of how a middle-aged Dutch watchmaker became a heroine of the Resistance, a survivor of Hitler's death camps, and one of the most remarkable evangelists of the twentieth century.

Title: The Christmas Wedding
Author: James Patterson and Richard DiLallo
Genre: Holiday/Christmas
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company

The tree is decorated, the cookies are baked, and the packages are wrapped, but the biggest celebration this Christmas is Gaby Summerhill's wedding. Since her husband died three years ago, Gaby's four children have drifted apart, each consumed by the turbulence of their own lives. They haven't celebrated Christmas together since their father's death, but when Gaby announces that she's getting married--and that the groom will remain a secret until the wedding day--she may finally be able to bring them home for the holidays.

But the wedding isn't Gaby's only surprise--she has one more gift for her children, and it could change all their lives forever. With deeply affecting characters and the emotional twists of a James Patterson thriller, The Christmas Wedding is a fresh look at family and the magic of the season.

Title: Sing You Home
Author: Jodi Picoult
Genre: Fiction
Publisher: Atria 

One miscarriage too many spelled the end of Max and Zoe Baxter's marriage. Though the former couple went quite separate ways, their fates remained entangled: After veering into alcoholism, Max is saved in multiple senses by his fundamentalist conversion; Zoe, for her part, finds healing relief in music therapy and the friendship, then romantic love with Vanessa, her counselor. After Zoe and Vanessa, now married, decide to have a baby, they realize that they must join battle with Max, who objects on both religious and financial grounds. Like her House Rules and several other previous Jodi Picoult novels, Sing You Home grapples with hot button issues. The novel also includes a CD of songs, each matched with a chapter in the book. Perfect for book clubs. 

Title: Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible
Author: Paula Deen with Melissa Clark
Genre: Food and Drink > Cookbooks
Publisher: Simon & Schuster 
 In her first full-length recipe collection since The Deen Family Cookbook, the Food Network icon returns to her roots with the definitive—and delicious—guide to Southern cooking and hospitality.
As a young wife, Paula Deen regularly turned to classic American cookbooks like Better Homes & Gardens and The Joy of Cooking for help negotiating her way around everything from making biscuits to roasting chickens and setting a table. Now, in the spirit of those well-loved tomes, Paula presents her own timeless and indispensable collection: Paula Deen’s Southern Cooking Bible.

It is the most comprehensive repertoire of Southern dishes you’ll ever find, and they are all done Paula’s way. Every one of these 325 recipes is fundamental to Southern eating, and 80 percent of them are new to this book. The book is structured like The Joy of Cooking and other bibles of the kitchen: from the beginning of the meal—hot and cold appetizers—to the end—cakes, cookies, and pie. It features 100 how-to illustrations throughout, showing how to peel a shrimp and how to make sweet potato balls without getting marshmallow all over your hands. Complete with sixteen pages of full-color photos, this must-have collection will make a warm, homey addition to any cook’s bookshelf.
 Alright, there you have it, On My Wishlist for this week! All of these are ones I am longing to read and have on my bookshelves. As I said up top if I get one of these precious books, I will come and let you know! Have a wonderful week of reading.....
