As Christmas is on Friday (that’s three days people!), this week’s Top Ten Tuesday has a Christmassy theme, and the topic is Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree This Year. Funnily enough, I actually rarely ask for books for Christmas, which I know seems strange for a booklover, but there are so many books on my TBR that it’s kind of hard to narrow it down to just a few specific books that I’d like and I don’t just want to tell people to get me a book because there are very few people (that I know personally, people who read this blog actually probably know my reading taste pretty well by now), who would know my reading taste well enough to get something I’d really like, so it’s easier just to spend the money I get for Christmas on the books I want instead! Still these are the books I would like for Santa to leave under my tree (otherwise known as the books I will probably buy in the New Year, because even though I’m trying to just read books I currently own next year, I’m sure I will end up buying more):
- The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken-I’ve been meaning to get started on this trilogy for months now! If I get the time in 2016, I would definitely like to get started on this. I certainly wouldn’t complain if I found it under the tree!
- Miss Mabel’s School For Girls by Katie Cross-This is a book I’ve featured in my Wishlist Wednesday posts this year, so if it ended up under the Christmas tree, then I would be very happy!
- The Secret Fire by CJ Daugherty and Carina Razenfeld-This book was the topic of the last Wishlist Wednesday post I did and it sounds incredible, so I would love it if I got this Christmas.
- A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab-I’ve seen such great reviews of this book and it sounds so wonderful, but I haven’t got the chance to read it yet. If Santa were to bring this for me for Christmas I would be very happy!
- The Book of Ivy-Amy Engel-I actually found out about this because I used a quote from it for Thursday Quotables one week, I read the synopsis and thought it actually sounded pretty great, so I would love it if Santa brought me this for Christmas.
- Scarlet-AC Gaughen-A Robin Hood retelling, where Will Scarlet is a girl? Give me, give me now! Please Santa?
- The Girl on The Train-Paula Hawkins-I’ve heard such great things about this and I really want to see what all the fuss is about and whether it actually lives up to all the hype. This book would be a welcome gift from Santa.
- Dreamstrider-Lindsay Smith-This book sounds absolutely brilliant and I would definitely love it if Santa brought it for me this year.
- Off The Page-Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer-It has been a while since I last read a Jodi Picoult book and I really enjoyed the first book, Between The Lines, so I would love it if Santa dropped the companion novel off under my tree.
- Every Breath-Ellie Marney-I love the sound of this Sherlock retelling, so I would be very happy if Santa brought it for me this Christmas.
- Cinder-Marissa Meyer-I’ve been told many times how brilliant the Lunar Chronicles is, so you never know, if Santa dropped this book under my tree, I might actually get around to starting it!
There are probably many more books that I could add to this list, but most of the books I’m looking forward to are 2016 releases, and I’m not sure Santa can make them release any faster (though if you can Santa, could I ask that you by some magic make The Raven King’s release come sooner? The wait is killing me!). What books would you like Santa to leave under your tree? Any of the same ones as me? Let me know in the comments!
I will be back next week with the last Top Ten Tuesday topic of 2015, my Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The First Half Of 2016, which should be a pretty easy list to do, since there are some great new releases coming out next year. In the meantime however, I should have a new Wishlist Wednesday post for you all tomorrow so make sure to check that out.
