To Do Lists, Young Adult

Top Ten Tuesday – Forget the sable; this is what I want under MY tree!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they come up with a topic and invite whoever wants to add their own list to their own blog.

I do love me some lists!

This Top Ten Tuesday is the Top Ten Books I hope Santa brings.

Books? Books for Chreeestmas?!

The last time I got books for Christmas I think I was in high school and my mom picked out two books that she really wanted to read and told me I needed to read them quickly so she could read them. Of course, this was back when we both read the same thing – trashy grocery store romance novels. These days it’s a little more difficult to purchase books for each other because our tastes have changed over the past decadish or so. But there’s always Santa! With his magical magic, he knows exactly what kind of books I enjoy and what I would love best to find on Christmas morning. Here are the top ten books I hope he brings:

Starcrossed, Josephine Angelini – I’ve already read this but I SO want to own it. Mostly so I can read it anytime I want, stare at it longingly, etc. You know, the way you do with books you love.

The Hunger Games, Stephanie Collins – Already read this one too, but I have a feeling this is going to be one of those epic series that HAS to be on my bookshelf. So I can stare at it longingly.

Bossypants, Tina Fey – Not a YA book. Not even a fiction book. This was one of my favorite reads of the year because I love the pants out of Tina Fey. She’s quirky, has brown hair and wears glasses – just like me!

Lola and the Boy Next Door, Stephanie Perkins – I just finished Anna and the French Kiss (Santa could bring me this too!) and am now jonesing to read Lola. Sadly, it was checked out of the library. But if Santa wants to bring it, I’m fine with that.

The Chronicles of Narnia set, C.S. Lewis – These books are like the Holy Grail of books (IMO) and I would create a special place on my most specialist bookshelf just for them. They would remain dust free and shiny new while being well loved and well read. Oh, Santa please!

Clockwork Angel, Cassandra Clare – I really need to start this series. Enough said.

The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern – I started this over Thanksgiving and unfortunately didn’t finish it before its due date back at the library. I really enjoyed it and would love to actually, you know, finish it.

The Sky is Everywhere, Jandy Nelson – Easily one of my favorite books that I would love to own. I don’t know if I could handle reading it again. But I’d love to have it!

Fever, Lauren Destafano – Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she?

The Mumbo Jumbo Circus, Jane George – I saw this book reviewed a while back and it REALLY sparked my interest. But I couldn’t find it anywhere! Okay, I didn’t look that hard… but still. I bet Santa has it in his magical workshop though!

Santa, I’ve been a really good girl this year. I’ve limited my margarita drinking, all but stopped scandalous behavior and not gossiped about people… much. What do you say, Santa? Books for Christmas? Yes please!

A Very 80's Christmas

  1. I’ll dream with you that Fever will show up under the tree. Wouldn’t that be great? Hope you get to read Lola soon, and that Santa takes care of the rest of your list for you. Love the 80s Christmas photo. Happy holidays!
