Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings

This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic from The Broke and the Bookish is 10 Books I Hope Santa Brings.  Now this is a hard subject because my actual answer is "All of them" but I spent some time with my TBR on Goodreads and picked out a a few I've really been wanting to read. 

1.  Cress by Marissa Meyer - I read the first 2 books in this series and really enjoyed them.  I've been meaning to read the 3rd book for almost a year but just haven't gotten to it.  I'm hoping if I actually had a physical copy that I would be more inclined to pick it up.

2.  Seven Days of Us by Francesca Hornak - This one sounds like such a fun read that's perfect for the holidays.

3.  Dear Farenheit 451: Love and Heartbreak in the Stacks: A Librarian's Love Letters and Breakup Notes to the Books in Her Life by Annie Spence - It's a book about books.  I can't resist books about books.

4.  Touch of Red by Laura Griffin - I love romantic suspense and I love this series.  I'm excited about the couple featured in this one.

5.  A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab - I've heard nothing but raves about this author and I really want to give this series a try.

6.  Cardinal Cabin by Joanne DeMaio - Mostly the cover because it's gorgeous but it also sounds wonderful and DeMaio is high up on my Authors To Read list.

7.  The Last Castle: The Epic Story of Love, Loss, and American Royalty in the Nation's Largest Home by Denise Kiernan - I love the Biltmore and I'd love to know more about the people who lived there.  I can't imagine calling it home.

8.  Reading People: How Seeing the World through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything by Anne Bogel - I love Bogel's podcast and this book sounds like a lot of fun.  I'm curious about what she has to say about personality types.

9.  Crime on the Fens by Joy Ellis - This police procedural looks amazing and I'm SOOO want to read it.

10. The Day of the Duchess by Sarah MacLean - I loved the first book in this series and I'm really interested to see the villain turned into a hero.

What books are you hoping Santa brings?

  4. I told Santa's Helper I wanted Skinwalker (Jane Yellowrock #1), a first in a fantasy series, and The Fortune Teller, a historical fiction/romance.

  5. Hmm I got to get to Cress too, funny how so much time passes even when the book is right there to read! I also have the Anne Bogel book sitting on my Kindle! Tucked away for some time, well since it published! A couple of others on your list I have had my eye on too.

  6. I see SO MANY beautiful things on this list! I would honestly die to get any of these for Christmas! Did you see the Collector's book of A darker Shade of Magic? That ADSOM edition is THE DREAM!!! I am so excited about finishing that series, but you’re so right about lusting for that cover and special content!! It is 100% more beautiful than the original ones. I think the dark background suits better!

  8. I haven't yet got around to reading Cress yet, either and several other bloggers have recommended Joy Ellis as an author I need to read. This sounds like an excellent list and I hope you find these books under your Christmas tree:).

  10. Oh, I loved Cress and The Day of the Duchess! I still need to read A Darker Shade of Magic, and also Dear Fahrenheit 451. I hope Santa brings you at least a few of these. :-)

  11. I loved A Darker Shade of Magic. I’m reading the last one in the series right now. I hope you get all these!

  12. I love your list and adored the Lunar Chronicles. Seven Days of Us was good but not a fav. Everyone is loving A Darker Shade of Magic. I have not tried it yet.

  13. I've read Darker Shade of Magic - now I just need the other two in the series! The first is great though. Cress is awesome! I've owned Winter since it came out and STILL need to read that one though. haha Soon!

    I'm currently reading Dear Fahrenheit 451; I read a little here and there, but it's a goodie. I do recommend. :)

  14. I've only read a couple from your list. I thought Seven Days of Us was pretty good. I'll never say no to a Sarah MacLean book.

  15. Dear Fahrenheit 451 sounds like such an interesting book! Have you listened to the latest podcast from Bogel? She interviews the author :)

  16. I think Cress was my favourite book in that series. It's just so funny! And I'm going to look up Seven Days of Us as I like the way you described it.

  17. Oo some good sounding ones. I still need to read book one from Meyer. It has been sitting on my shelf a shameful long time lol

  18. Reading People is really good - and that cover for Cardinal Cabin is so pretty!! My TTT

  19. Dear Fahrenheit 451 sounds wonderful. I am going to add it to Goodreads. It is strange with me and Victoira Schwab. I absolutely loved and adored A Darker Shade of Magic, but loathed the two books I read from two of her other series. Ha ha. XD I hope you get all of your wishes!
