Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wish Santa Would Bring


Merry Christmas, everyone!  I hope y'all have a great day tomorrow, get the gifts you hope for, have fun with family, and eat yummy food.

So...books I wish Santa would bring... I'm going to go off my book wishlists that I gave my parents and grandparents, since they're technically Santa. ;)

1. Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Our local indie bookseller had a few signed copies, and I dropped repeated hints that I wanted it, so we'll see if it's under the tree for me tomorrow.

2. Relic by Heather Terrell
I had an ARC of this book, but I want an actual hardcover copy to go on my bookshelf.

This was one of my favorite reads of 2013, and I neeeeeeddddd it.  So if no one gets it for me, hopefully I'll have a giftcard to go buy books.

4. The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg
"All I need is this book..."

5267365
I'm still completing my collection of Gallagher Girls books, and since I have the first two (and book six), this one is next on my list, even though it's probably my least favorite of the series.

6. Golden by Jessi Kirby
I promise I don't want this book solely for its beautiful cover.

7. Margot by Jillian Cantor
One of the best historical fiction novels I've ever read.  I love the whole "what-if" set-up.

10798416
It's one of the books I read and liked a lot, so of course I want it.

9. The House of Hades by Rick Riordan
It's become a "thing" that every year since The Son of Neptune, my mom has gotten me the latest book in the Heroes of Olympus series for Christmas.  Will that tradition continue this year?  I hope so!

I thought about putting Cress as book ten, since I really wish Santa would bring it for me.  But I'm trying to be realistic here.  So I'll go for another book on one of my wishlists.

10. Falling for Hamlet by Michelle Ray
I'm still a Shakespeare/Hamlet geek.  I still want this book, no matter how much I dislike its cover. (Seriously, what self-respecting girl wears a skirt that short?)

  1. I wish I wouldve put Golden on my list this week!!! I definitely want that one. And yuck to that girls ass hanging out on that Falling for Hamlet cover. I am not feeling that at all. But the book does sound cute :)

    1. If I took the time to describe every book, we'd be here until Santa got to my house! I suggest checking out the synopses on Goodreads.
