Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday. Today’s Top Ten is about all the books I wouldn’t mind Santa leaving under my tree. Though, honestly, these are not ALL the books… In fact, I actually have a Holiday wishlist of about 50 books. And basically nothing else. Clothes? Meh. Food? Close. But books? Yes, please! (Of course, just spending time with my loved ones is a pretty cool aspect about the holidays as well)
Anyway, these are the 10 books for which I’m crossing my fingers the hardest. These are the 10 books I am craving the most and would be super thrilled to see under my tree. In no particular order:
Oh, hi! My name is Lindsey and 2016 has turned me in absolute Hamilton trash. I’ve been drooling over this gorgeous book for months now.
Does one ever has enough Harry Potter related books or items? No, one does not. One can only keep collecting these for the rest of their life. So one can read, look at, pet and sniff them. (One should stop describing of themselves as one now)
2016 is the year I fell in love with Marissa Meyer and her Lunar Chronicles. So of course I am so eager to get my hands on this Queen of Hearts retelling. Also, I heard there would be lots of pastries in this.
I may be the only person left on planet earth who has not yet read this majorly hyped book (or it’s sequel Gemina). I PROMISE I WILL FIX THIS TERRIBLE MISTAKE SOON, OKAY?
Oh, V.E. Schwab. Why didn’t I read your books earlier? A Darker Shade of Magic and A Gathering of Shadows are some of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOKS ever and I need more! While waiting for A Conjuring of Light, I’d love to kill the time with this story about superpowers, villains and archnemeses. (Yes, I totally had to look up the plural for nemesis right now.)
I was highly anticipating this 2016 release. And then it came out and I… still haven’t read it. And it contains revenge plots, fantasy and morally grey characters! Clearly this cannot be. Hence the hope that I’ll find it under my tree and be able to dive right in!
Honestly, all I know about this book is that it is the first in a fantasy series filled with magic. And it has the most gorgeous covers. Seriously, look at that cover! It wouldn’t even have to be gift-wrapped because it’s looking pretty enough like this…
I finally read Outlander this year and now I am eager to continue the story with Dragonfly in Amber. I would love to check in again with Claire and Jamie and see how their story continues.
This adult fantasy series has been intimidating me for way too long now. It has been hyped and praised by so many people and I am so looking forward to finally reading it and seeing it for myself.
This story about an agoraphobe and the girl who is trying to ‘fix’ him has received so much praise as well and I am just dying to read it. It is said to be a realistic take on anxiety, and have a big focus on friendship and nerdy characters so basically this book may have been written for me…
