Does anyone else get that song stuck in their head when they see this?

As usual, Linky List over on A Tapestry of Words

Anywho, week two of Christmas wishes! YAY!
First, the book:

I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett
[From GoodReads]
It starts with whispers.
Then someone picks up a stone.
Finally, the fires begin.
When people turn on witches, the innocents suffer. . . .
Tiffany Aching has spent years studying with senior witches, and now she is on her own. As the witch of the Chalk, she performs the bits of witchcraft that aren t sparkly, aren t fun, don t involve any kind of wand, and that people seldom ever hear about: She does the unglamorous work of caring for the needy.
But someone or something is igniting fear, inculcating dark thoughts and angry murmurs against witches. Aided by her tiny blue allies, the Wee Free Men, Tiffany must find the source of this unrest and defeat the evil at its root before it takes her life. Because if Tiffany falls, the whole Chalk falls with her.

My Reasons: Want. As in Epic Want. I’ve been following this series since its beginning and I absolutely love the Wee Free Men, Tiffany and all the rest of the gang. I want to know what happens next, whether Roland stops being an idiot and if Wentworth ever learns how to not be sticky. Then again, I am a bit prejudiced. I have half a shelf devoted to my Pratchett books (completely by accident – I alphabetize and one entire shelf is devoted to Tamora Pierce and Terry Pratchett simply because they happen to be near each other in the alphabet).

In the DVD category I’m going to have to go with:

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (Disney)
Based on the Sorcerer’s Apprentice Short from Fantasia and Fantasia 2000

My Reasons: So epic! So awesome! So the critics didn’t really like it, so what! I loved it, and I would love the chance to properly watch it as the first time was on the little tiny screen they give you on the airbusses when you fly overseas, and the sound was awful. Not quite sure when this one comes out though, so I may be hoping in vain =/

And finally, in the soundtrack division:

How To Train Your Dragon, music by John Powell
My Reasons: I’ve actually loved this one for a while, and it’s definitely already out. I just haven’t sprung for a copy yet. I’ve seen the film twice (it’s also on my Christmas List, though with only one week left it may not get featured here) and each time I’m amazed by the music just as much as the visual content – an automatic sign for me that owning the soundtrack is a must!

What’s on your wishlist?

    Aw, How to Train Your Dragon was a cute movie!! I haven't seen The Sorcerer's Apprentice yet, I'll have to keep that one in mind. And I'm partway through reading The Wee Free Men! Hope you find these under the tree :)
