Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing

I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's prompt is:

Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing

I am pretty much delighted anytime anyone gives me a book, but here are a few that I badly want to own, but don't yet:

10. The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
I fell hard for this book.  I would like to own this series pronto.

9. A Path Appears by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn
I love their book Half the Sky, and have badly wanted to read this one ever since it came out.

8. Dubliners by James Joyce
I like having a large collection of classics on my bookshelf.  Especially if their covers are as rad as this one.

It looks insightful, interesting, and inspiring, plus that cover is making me drool.

6. Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy by Karen Abbott
I've wanted to read this from the moment I heard about it.  I feel like women's stories in history aren't told as widely as they should, so I jump at the chance to read them when I can.

5. Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James
I just watched this miniseries and LOVED it.  WHY HAVE I NOT HEARD OF THIS BOOK BEFORE. 

4. Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
I read library copies of all three released books, but I am enjoying this series so much that I know I'll want to reread it.  I'd like to own my own copy!

Believe it or not, I have more interests than reading.  This one captures another interest (art) with my reading interest, and looks absolutely lovely.

2. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
As one of four sisters myself, I'm partial to this story.  I haven't read it in some time, though, and have never owned a copy.  I would love to reread it!

1. My True Love Gave to Me by Various Authors
This book just looks cute.  What a fun way to celebrate the holiday season!

What books do you want from Santa this year?


  1. Great list. I have actually read Liar. temptress soldier, spy this year. It was a great book.

    1. Good to know! You're actually the first person I've come in contact with who has read it. Glad to hear a positive review.

  2. Kiss of Deception is also one I wouldn't mind getting from Santa! I hope you were able to get all of these books! I really wanted the Lunar Chronicles so I was happy to receive those ^^

    1. Oh yay! So glad you got The Lunar Chronicles, those are so much fun. I didn't get Kiss of Deception from Santa this year, but that's okay because I have a few gift cards burning a hole in my pocket... :)
