Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing This Year

toptentuesday Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish (click the image to visit them) who pick a different topic each week.

The topic for this week is:The Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing This Year.

Ooooooooh so many, so, so many. Most of the books I really want are ones that I never got round to buying…I hope Santa has a bottomless sack! 😉

Dear Santa,

I have a been a very good girl this year, so if you would be so kind, I would like these books in my life…(in no particular order).

More Than This – Patrick Ness: I always need more Ness in my life!

Of Scars and Stardust – Andrea Hannah: This was my second favourite book of the year, which I had as a digital advance copy but I need to own a physical copy. I wanted to read it again as soon as I’d finished it!

Rebel Belle – Rachel Hawkins: It looks so pretty and sounds bad-ass too!

Heir of Fire – Sarah J. Maas: So much love for this series but I just keep forgetting to buy it!

The Bane Chronicles – Cassandra Clare: I never did finish TMI but Alec and Magnus Bane were totally my favourites.

The Jewel – Amy Ewing: I need to fill the void that The Selection trilogy has left and this sounds like it could be up to the job. There’s too long to wait until The Heir is released!

Subversive Horror Cinema (Countercultural Messages of Films from Frankenstein to the Present) – Jon Towlson: I don’t buy a lot of non-fiction books but one or two always end up on my Christmas list. I’m a huge fan of cinematic horror and this sounds really interesting to me.

Aristotle & Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – Benjamin Alire Sáenz: I’ve heard so many wonderful things about this book. It’s been on the top of my wishlist for a while now.

The Girl Who Walked on Air – Emma Carroll: I loved Frost Hollow Hall and have been meaning to buy this one, the second book by Emma, since it was released. I have failed.

The Chaos Walking Trilogy – Patrick Ness: It makes me sad that I don’t own these books. I borrowed them off my friend Di but I definitely need my own copies ASAP!

  1. Oh, yes, yes, yes. Some great picks on here. I need to actually read some Ness first, but I imagine if I like him I’ll be gobbling all the rest of his books. I love the cover for Of Scars and Stardust (and that title) and would love a copy of this too. Rebel Belle looks interesting, obviously Heir of Fire is a must and I really want a copy of Bane Chronicles too! I haven’t done GThe Selection or The Jewel yet, am I really missing out?? And as for The Chaos Walking trilogy, I own them but haven’t got to them yet – but check this out for mad prices – http://www.thebookpeople.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/qs_product_tbp?storeId=10001&catalogId=10051&langId=100&productId=256768

  2. Yes to more Ness! I need to read More Than This! Oh, and I’ve been meaning to get to Aristotle and Dante as well. I hope you get some great book gifties this year!
