Top 5 Tuesday - Top 5... Books on My Holiday Wishlist

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme that explores different topics. Originally created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, it is now hosted by Meeghan at Meeghan Reads. For a list of December topics you can click here. To participate, link your post back to the weekly post.

This one is going to be so hard. If you have seen my Goodreads "Want to Read" list (575 total right now) and my Amazon Wish List, I will have a lot of choices. I think I will stick to nonfiction to make it easier.

I love the Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy Maud Montgomery. I used to read the series once a year. While those days are long gone, this new devotional would be the perfect way to experience Anne's world in a different way.

This is a travel memoir of a woman who decided to revisit the books from her childhood by traveling to places like the Missouri Wilder wrote about, the Minnesota of Maud Hart Lovelace, and Lucy Maud Montgomery's Canada. 

Ever since I watched the movie, The Man Who Invented Christmas starring Dan Stevens, I have wanted to read this book about how Charles Dickens self-published A Christmas Carol and how it changed the holiday and his life.

I am a lover of history and politics--the current election cycle excepted--and I enjoy reading stories of men and women who had an impact on history in one way or another. 

The story of the Wright Brothers always fascinated me. That fascination only grew as we began spending time on the Outer Banks and visited the museum there. I also enjoy books by McCullough. 

Hope you enjoy today's list. I look forward to reading what is on your holiday wishlist.
