Bee Waits: The Book Edit

Every year people ask me what I want for Christmas and every year I do the exact same thing. I promptly present them with a wish list of books as long as my arm. I love nothing more than a good coffee table book and one of my favourite things on Christmas night is to make myself a baileys hot chocolate and snuggle up on the sofa with a new book (and usually The Grinch on in the background, it's pretty much becoming standard.) I thought that for a change I'd bring you some of the books that I'm hoping for (or would pick up for the loved ones) this year.

1. Tim Walker: Story Teller

After seeing Tim Walker's exhibition at Somerset House earlier this year he's pretty much cemented himself as one of my favourite photographers. Fantastical high fashion photography that needs to be in my book case. 

2.Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters - Jessica Valenti

I've got Valenti's "The Purity Myth" on my list year (the film by the by was AMAZING)  but "Full Frontal Feminism" is a great intro book to modern feminism.

3. Moranthology - Caitlin Moran

You bet your bottom dollar I was ALL OVER "How to Be a Woman" last year. One of my favourite reads so the latest outing from Moran has creeped itself right in to my Christmas list. Will it be the kind of book that I will share with all the people like "How to Be a Woman"? We'll see. We'll see.

 4.Great Expectations - Charles Dickens

Penguins cloth bound classics are some of the prettiest books I've ever seen in my life. I mean don't get me wrong guys - I get the kindle thing - I totally GET IT but I love the idea of owning beautifully bound versions of my favourite books. It's a Christmas list so - anything by Dickens seems aprop right?

5. Bunny In The Moon - The Art of Tara McPherson Vol III

NEW TARA MCPHERSON BOOK. WHY ARE YOU NOT MINE ALREADY? Tara McPherson is one of my favourite illustrators (up there with James Jean who is my KING)  - and is pretty much the Queen of Poster Art. She's created some sickening posters for the likes of Bright Eyes, Liars, The Melvins, Faith No More and Death Cab for Cutie. Go ahead and look her up. For me she is a total game changer. I've got her last couple of books so after finding out a new release of her art dropped this year I got crazy excited. It's not like I really need another coffee table book...but I totally do.

6: Rookie: Yearbook One

Am I technically too old for this? I don't even care. Do I ever wish there was something like this out when I was a young teen (not to hate on Shout and all the delicious hair mascara.) Anyway it looks like it a pretty sweet collection of interviews, photo editorials, how tos and illustrations.

7. The Fault in Our Stars - John Green

Everyone and their mum has recommended this to me so it's pretty high on the list. Apparently a real tear jerker but also one of those must read guys.

 8.  Boo: The Life of the World's Cutest Dog - J.H.Lee

This. This and the matching soft toy. In my stocking. This is pure shameless fluff (and the sort of thing you can get for anyone, I know the boyshape would be ALL UP IN THIS.)

So what books are on your Christmas list this year?
Also - your Christmas song for the day (straight from the Christmas playlist I made my boy last year.) Parenthetical Girls - Festive Friends Forever, easily one of my fave alt Christmas tunes. EASILY.


  1. Oh I wish I could buy every book on my wish list... I'd be a broke if I did. Really want the Tim Walker one, too. x

    1. My book list is ridic. The Tim Walker one looks insane! x

  2. Oh the Tim Walker one looks magical :)

    1. It will be if the exhibition was anything to go by x

  3. I'm adding Tim Walker to my list. You should add The Unbearable Lightness of Being to yours :)


    1. Will do! Sounds amazing! x

    2. the unbearable lightness of being is an amazing book. I am now going home to re-read mine :) ! x

  4. Tim Walker, Penguin clothbounds, Feminism and Rookie Yearbook, YES! xxx

  5. Good list! I also love getting books, though since I move so much I haven't asked for them in recent years. I have a book Caitlin Moran wrote when she was 16... found it in a second hand bookshop when I was a kid... it cracks me up that suddenly I hear of her all the time now!
