Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

This week's Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is pretty much hypothetical. I'm pretty sure all of my gifts have been purchased by now, and at any rate I am currently sailing on the sea and am nowhere near a shop. Also, I am picky about the books I'll buy -- I like to know that I will like them already. But hypothetically, this is what I would want this Christmas.

1. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Read it, loved it, want to look at it again and again for inspiration.

2. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare. I'm dying to know what happens next in this series.

3. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver. I know, I know, it isn't out until March. But when I see it mentioned in other bloggers' posts, I am pretty jealous! I read Delirium on NetGalley, but I think Pandemonium is too big a title for a baby blogger like me to get early from a publisher. I will definitely be excited to read it when it does come out!

4. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly. This is another one I've already read but would love to have a copy of for myself.

5. & 6.  The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver and Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver. The Bean Trees is one of my favorite books, and I would love to have my own copy. I haven't read Pigs in Heaven, the sequel yet, mainly because I don't want it to ruin how much I loved the first book, but I think I'm going to have to read it soon -- especially if we really do move to Arizona this summer.

7. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. I've read this one too (seeing a trend here?) but I would love to own it. It's the perfect book to cheer me up on a bad day.

8. French Milk by Lucy Knisley. Haven't read this one yet, surprise! I'm an enthusiast for anything French and I would love to have a copy of this graphic novel, especially as it isn't in the library.

9. The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton. I love this book and I only have a Kindle edition. I would love to have a pretty hardback someday.

10. His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman. I used to have a gorgeous hardback set of these, but they got lent out to someone and never returned. My mom can't remember anymore who they were lent out to, so I think they are gone for good. One of these days I need my own copy again.

I hope you all get your Christmas wishes this year :)


  1. Looks like a nice list for Santa to choose from. Merry Christmas. kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  2. I gave away the first copy of the Bean Trees that I owned, so I had to buy myself a new one. TheNight Circus is charming and would make a lovely gift.

  3. Awesome choices 0 I ope you've been good this year so Santa hook you up with these books :-)

  4. @Natalie -- Seriously. She can do no wrong.

    @Kaye -- He didn't end up choosing any of them, but I think I'm going to have to use some Christmas money on these!

    @LBC -- I think it might become a go-to gift for me in the future when I don't know what to get someone!

    @Tanya Patrice -- Thanks! Haha. I hope Santa hooked you up with some good ones as well!
