Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly challenge curated by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s TTT topic is “Books I Hope Santa Brings.” Since I haven’t mentioned most of these books to people, this is likely a list of books I’ll be purchasing for myself for Christmas. Hey, I’m the best gift giver. For a complete list of TTT prompts, click here.
- The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
This is the only book on this list that I’ve hinted at wanting for Christmas, so hopefully it’ll be under my tree! Leigh Bardugo’s one of my favorite authors, and it pains me a bit to not own all of her books. But I have a ton of novels on my TBR, so I couldn’t justify buying another one that I wouldn’t read for several months.
- Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray
If I love Lair of Dreams as much as The Diviners, I’ll be grabbing the third installment ASAP. But hey, if Santa wanted to pick it up for me, I wouldn’t necessarily complain about it.
- Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
I’ve had such a difficult time finding literary fiction that I enjoy lately, but Little Fires Everywhere has gotten phenomenal reviews. I figured I’d give it a try, maybe find a new lit fic author to adore.
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
I’m officially the only human being in the book community who hasn’t read this series. Somehow, I’ve managed to avoid being spoiled. But finishing these books
- Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan
I own the first and last book in this series, so Santa can feel free to fill in the gap. Then I can open 2018 with a nice series binge.
- History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera
I read (and loved) History is All You Left Me earlier this year, but I don’t own it. That’s a damn shame, especially since I’d like to read this again.
- Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
This is another one that I took out from the library, loved, and now need to acquire for my personal library.
- Depression & Other Magic Tricks by Sabrina Benaim
I’ve had my eye on this poetry collection for a while, mainly because it deals with a mental illness I’m rather acquainted with. Plus, the cover is gorgeous.
- Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang
This is a literary fiction novel I keep hearing about, so I’m down to pick it up right after Little Fires Everywhere.
- Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero
This is a Scooby-Doo retelling that I regularly have to stop myself from purchasing at the bookstore. I mean, everyone retells fairytales, but Scooby-Doo?!
