Top Ten Tuesday - Books I Hope Santa Leaves

Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl which is all about lists.  Since lists are one of my favorite things this is one of my favorite linkups!  Today's topic is Books I Hope Santa Leaves.  I've been taking a break from book shopping lately so I have more then a few I wouldn't mind showing up under the tree!

1.  Your Guide to Not Getting Murdered in a Quaint English Village by Maureen Johnson and Jay Cooper - How could I not want this based on the title alone?

2.  The Rose Code by Kate Quinn - I finally read The Alice Network this year and loved it so now I need more from this author.

3.  Around the World in 80 Trees by Ben Lerwill and Kaja Kajfe - So intrigued by this concept.

4.  The Mystery of Mrs. Christie by Marie Benedict - Anything about Agatha Christie instantly catches my attention.  

5.   Unearthing the Secret Garden:  The Plants and Places That Inspired Frances Hodgson Burnett by Marta McDowell - The Secret Garden is one of my favorite books and this one sounds really intersting.  

6.  The Christmas Bookshop by Jenny Colgan - I love Jenny Colgan and this cover is beyond gorgeous and Christmas-y.  

7.  The London House by Katherine Reay - I read a book by this author and absolutely loved it and really want to read more from her.  

8.   How the Penguins Saved Veronica by Hazel Prior - First the title is fabulous and second I've heard great things about this series.  

9.  The Case of Murderous Dr. Cream: The Hunt for a Victorian Era Serial Killer by Dean Jobb - I thought this sounded fascinating and I know nothing about this case.  

10. The Life and Times of Hercule Poirot by Anne Hart - I read Hart's book about Miss Marple and found it interesting and there's quite a bit more material about Poirot so I'm curious about this one.

What books are you hoping Santa leaves under your tree?  


  1. The Rose Code and The Christmas Bookshop are ones I'd like as well.

  2. Several books I'd like to get hold of. I hope you do get what you want.

  3. What a great list and I see a couple I enjoyed. Hope you've left a list somewhere for Santa!!

  4. I have been wanting to read The Christmas Bookshop. I like Colgan's books.

  5. I do hope you like Around the World in 80 Trees. I thought it was a lovely book.

  6. So many of these books sound good! I love Maureen Johnson, so I'm especially intrigued by #1. Also, #6 because I love Colgan and that cover is everything fun and festive. So, yeah, basically, I'm intrigued by this whole list. I'll be interested to see what you think of all these!

    Happy TTT (on a Thursday)!

  7. Did you get Around the World in 80 Trees? It does sound interesting. 🌲🌳🌴
