Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about our bookish wishes for the Holiday season! Now, obviously the biggest joy about the Holidays is spending time with family and loved ones (well, it may not be for everybody, but I actually do love family gatherings. Mostly.) and soaking up the festive atmosphere. But I can’t deny that getting presents is also part of the fun. Bookish presents especially. I’m actually pretty easy to shop for since I make my wishlist months in advance *oops*.  So here are a few of the books that are on this years’ wishlist for Santa!

An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Fae princes shapeshifting into ravens. Art as power. Romance. Of course I’m in! Add a gorgeous cover and I would just really love a copy on my shelves to admire.

Vicious by V.E. Schwab


I fell head-over-heels in love with the Shades of Magic trilogy by V.E. Schwab, but unfortunately I haven’t yet read anything else by her, so obviously this must be remedied. Please, Santa?

Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco

Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco

After reading and loving Stalking Jack The Ripper, I am super curious about the sequel and impatient to be reunited with one of my fave sleuthing duos!

Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

After procrastinating waay too long before reading Illuminae, I have found myself procratinating again on the sequel. Perhaps if Santa got it for me, I’d stop procrastinating?

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Illustrated Edition

It is a truth universally acknowledged that one can never have enough Harry Potter editions. Not to mention, these are just so gorgeous!

The Red Winter trilogy by Annette Marie

red-winter-by-annette-marie Dark Tempest by Annette Marie Immortal Fire by Annette Marie

Say Lindsey, you’ve been going on and on about this series for about a year now, why are you still hoping Santa will bring it to you? Well yes, I have the ebook versions and have already read them all. But some series you just love so much, you want to be able to hold them in your hands. To smell them. To look at them fondly. To pet them. I just want a physical copy, okay?

The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Skye

The Crown's Fate by Evelyn Skye

I adored the first book in this duology set in a fantasy tsarist Russia, yet I still haven’t read the second part? This just can’t be.

27 Hours by Tristina Wright

27 Hours by Tristina Wright

I’ve been a little low on sci-fi lately – just haven’t discovered many that can catch my attention. But this one? An epic new sci-fi series with a big cast of wonderfully diverse characters? BRING. IT. ON!

The Midnight Sea by Kat Ross


This fantasy sounds absolutely gorgeous and I just really hope to read it soon!

Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

Wonder Woman Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

It’s Wonder Woman. A coming-of-age story for Wonder Woman. A coming-of-age story for Wonder Woman, written by Leigh Bardugo, one of my favorite authors. And I haven’t read it yet? Help me Santa, I need a bookish intervention! 😉

 WHAT Books are you hoping Santa will bring you?


  1. The Red Winter trilogy has such beautiful covers 🙂 I own Wonder Woman but I am yet to read it. And that illustarted edition of HP is everything. I forgot to add it to my list 😛 I hope Santa fulfill your wishes 🙂
    Merry Christmas!

    1. Red Winter definitely has some beautiful covers 🙂 Hope you’ll enjoy Wonder Woman and that Santa may still bring you that illustrated HP after all 😉 Merry Christmas!

  2. ‘Ravens’ made my list too, and though I’ve yet to read it, “Wonder Woman” is on my bookshelf. Still… hopefully it’ll be one of this books I actually read in 2018! 🙂

    Hope these end up under the tree next week, Lindsey. 🙂

    1. Thanks Rissi! Hope we’ll both get to ‘Ravens’ or ‘Wonder Woman’ or well, any of the books on our lists soon 😉

  3. An Enchantment of Ravens looks awesome- I love that cover. And Gemina was so good! I hope you get that one. 🙂

    27 Hours looks great too.

    1. An Enchantment of Ravens indeed looks so nice! And I have my fingers crosses to find Gemina under my Christmas tree 😉

  4. Great list! Hunting Prince Dracula and Gemina made my list this week too 🙂

    1. Thanks! Hope we’ll both find Hunting Prince Dracula and Gemina under the Christmas tree 😉

  5. I initially had the illustrated edition of Azkaban on my list as well but hubby was so nice to gift it to me already in November. <3 I have the epic crush of genie lo on my list despite having read it. I read an e arc but I desperately want a physical copy. 🙂 So I completely understand.

    1. That’s such a nice gift, plus it leaves some room for another book on your Christmas wishlist 😉 Oh I haven’t read the Epic Crush of Genie Lo yet, but I should definitely look into that one!

  6. I still need to read Hunting Prince Dracula!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks!

    1. Hope it’ll live up to both our expectations 🙂

  7. I totally get what you’re saying about needing the actual BOOK books of a series you love!

    I’ve never heard of Hunting Prince Dracula or Stalking Jack the Ripper before, but that cover is gorgeous and I’m already into it. I guess I hope someone brings me that also!!!

    Great list!

    1. Thanks! I’ve been so good about getting more ebooks instead of physical copies, but for some I just still need those actual books in my hands 🙂
      Oh, I hope you’ll find SJtR and HPD under your Christmas tree and you’ll love it as much as I did 🙂

  8. Santa (basically my mom) is finally giving me Geminaaaa and I am sooo freaking excited!!!! I started the Crown’s Game and I hope to get The Crown’s Fate as a New Year gift!!!
    And I hope you enjoy Wonder Woman when you pick it up, it was definitely an enjoyable read!

    1. Haha yay, thanks Santa! 😉 Hope we’ll both receive The Crown’s Fate as a gift these holidays 🙂
      Happy to hear you enjoyed Wonder Woman, hope I’ll get to read it soon as well.

  9. So many great books on the list! I finished Vicious last week and it’s one of the best books I’ve read this year! Hopefully you’ll soon get your hands on this one. I’m sure if you loved the Shades of Magic series you’ll love this one too!

    1. Ah I’m so happy to hear you loved Vicious! I hope to read it soon 🙂

  10. The illustrated Harry Potters are so pretty! I can’t wait to collect them all!

    1. Derfinitely, me too 🙂

  11. I still haven’t read Wonder Woman but hope to remedy that soon. So many good looking books here. Hope Santa comes through!

    1. Yes, me too 🙂 Hope we’ll both receive some great books from Santa!

  12. I saw the Fantastic Beasts illustrated book at my local bookstore the other day and browsed through it. It was so beautiful! But I still would prefer to get the other illustrated books in the Harry Potter series. A History of Magic looked gorgeous too. I just LOVE Jim Kay’s style and how intricate they are. It was just the new addition we needed to the Harry Potter fandom! It certainly enhances the experience, and it is so worth it.
    I see SO MANY beautiful things on this list! I would honestly die to get any of these for Christmas!

    1. Yes I kind of forgot about the Fantastic Beasts illustrated book as well, but you’re right it looks so beautiful! All these Harry Potter illustrated editions are just so gorgeous <3

  13. Good list!! I hope you receive all the books you want this year. Happy holidays!!

    Here’s my TTT post for the week:

    1. Thanks so much! Wishing you happy holidays as well! 🙂

  14. I loved Vicious. I hope you get all these books!

    1. Glad to hear you enjoyed Vicious! Hope to get to it soon 🙂

  15. Oh, I just loved Gemina- I need the third book now! I also really loved Hunting Prince Dracula. You must get these for sure!! I have the second and third illustrated HP (well, I own them all but I’ve only read the first one). I also want to read Vicious, though I DO own it. I just really need to finish the Shade of Magic series (I’ve only read and own the first).


    1. Ah, glad to hear you loved Gemina and HUnting Prince Dracula! Now I’m really hoping I’ll be able to get to them soon 🙂 Hope you enjoy the Shades of Magic series, it’s my favorite 🙂

  16. So many books on your list that I’d love to read too!

    1. Great minds think alike 😉

  17. Vicious! Yes! I heard that they are changing the covers, so you need to hurry if you want that cover! 🙂

    1. Oh, even more incentive haha 😉

  18. Sooo many great books! I love The Crown’s Fate, Wonder Woman: Warbringer, Hunting Prince Dracula, and Gemina! I hope Santa gives you everything you want!!

    Thanks for sharing, and Merry Christmas!

    1. Thanks so much!

  19. An Enchantment of Ravens and some of V.E. Schwab’s books are also on my list! THEY LOOK SO GOOD.

    I absolutely loved Gemina! I found it even better than Illuminae, and I LOVED Illuminae.

    I hope you get some of the books on your list! ❤

    My TTT post!

    1. They do look soo good 🙂 Glad to hear you loved Gemina, can’t wait to get to it!

  20. I’m in love with your Christimas’s list. I’m dying to read An Enchantment of Ravens – it was one of my Black Friday orders and the cover is so much pretty in real life. *.*

    I’d love Santa to bring me the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban too. I’ve seen some of the illustrations and, as always, they are gorgeous. Also, The Red Winter triology by Annette Marie would be a great gift. Not only because the covers are gorgeous, but also because I enjoy the author’s writing and the worlds she creates.

    Happy readings! Merry Christmas! ?
    Tânia @MyLovelySecret

    1. These are all so gorgeous indeed! Hope you had a great Christmas and lots of nice bookish gifts 😉

  21. I REALLY want the Harry Potter illustrated editions. AS of now, I don’t have any of them in my collection, but that’s what I’m really hoping for this Christmas! Also, I started to read The Crown’s Game, I got about 50 pages in and couldn’t finish it because of a school conflict, but I’m hoping to get that, as well as a couple other books finished on my list by the end of this year! Good post, hope you have an AMAZING Christmas!

    1. The Harry Potter Illustrated Editions make such perfect gifts indeed 🙂 Hope you’ll get all of them!

  22. Amazing list!! I’m also dying to read WWW and An Enchantment of Ravens, and even though I didn’t love Stalking Jack the Ripper, I’m dying to read HPD because I ship Audrey Rose and Thomas so much ?

    Oh, and I totally know what you mean about wanting the print copies of books you’ve read the ebooks of. It’s hard to justify it to yourself, though, or maybe that’s just me ? But it doesn’t stop the longing!

    Hope you got some of these for Christmas?!

    1. I get what you mean about shipping Audrey Rose and Thomas, haha 🙂
      I know, it doesn’t make sense to have two copies, but there’s just something about holding a physical copy in your hands…
      Oh and I did get the Red Winter trilogy for Christmas, so YAY! I’ll be holding and looking at them (and re-reading naturally) a lot! <3
