All I Want For Christmas Is... (3)

This is a feature/meme where I choose a book each week leading up to Christmas and say why it's made it onto my wishlist – and I'd love to see what books everyone else is hoping to get! I'll be posting my pick each Thursday, but you guys can link up and visit other people's posts all through the week.
This week's pick: The Three Loves of Persimmon by Cassandra Golds

From Goodreads:

Persimmon Polidori is a fine young lady, but within her is a rebel. She must follow her heart's desire, even if it means her family will reject her for the choices she makes. These choices bring her adventure and a world she never knew existed - they also bring her loneliness...

Along the way, Persimmon undergoes the trials of love, heartbreak, doubt and the discovery of her own true value.

And she does it with the aid of a tiny, brave creature named Epiphany.

I found out about this novel through the Tea Mouse blog, whose review had a lot of glowing things to say about it, including that the author does a great job of eliciting emotion from the reader. I like the idea that one of the main characters is a girl, one is a mouse, and their stories come together. It sounds like one of those rare under-the-radar reads that are really fresh and quirky! (Also, I love that her name is Persimmon. That's a fabulous name for a character in this type of book.)

What books are on your Christmas wish list? Link up below!


  1. The cover for this one is brilliant and the main character certainly has a very interesting name. I hope that you get this one for Christmas, if you do/if you eventually read it then I'll be looking out for a review!
