Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing This Year

(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)


I WANT ALL THE BOOKS FOR CHRISTMAS!!! I don’t have high hopes though that I get any from my family. (Thank goodness there are awesome blogging friends who gift books!) 


  • All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
    When I rearranged my bookshelf a little while ago I noticed that I don’t have a lot of historical fiction books even though I always love reading them! Need to change that and this one seems like a good choice! (I mean, look at that cover!!!)
  • Waistcoats & Weaponry (Finishing School #3) by Gail Carriger
    I LOVE Gail Carriger’s books, especially this series (SOAP <3) and I don’t even know why I don’t own this yet.
  • These Broken Stars (Starbound #1) by Amy Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
    I wasn’t really interested in this until Judith wrote this blog post


  • Royal Assassin (Farseer Trilogy #2) by Robin Hobb
    I just read the first book in the series and want to jump into the next one real quick!
  • The Warrior Heir (Heir Chronicles) by Cinda Williams Chima
    I loved her Seven Realms series and need more books like that.
  • The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle) by Patrick Rothfuss
    I guess this is a must-read for fans of epic fantasy… (and I’m going to read this with Amber in January)
  • Eon (Eon #1) by Alison Goodman



Which books are on your christmas wishlist? Have you read any of these?
