Top Ten Tuesday: Books Santa Could Bring Me

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

My Christmas List:

1. Splintered by A. G. Howard - The cover of this book is gorgeous and I wouldn't mind having it on my bookshelf.

2. Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer - I've read both of these but I don't own them yet.  I would love for them to sit gracefully upon one of my bookshelves.

3. Insurgent and Allegiant by Veronica Roth - I have yet to finish this trilogy but maybe having it  in my possession would change that.

4. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness - I am really interested in reading this series and I think the covers are really cool looking.

5. The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien (The 75th anniversary edition) - These are beautiful and I wouldn't mind having another set of these books hanging around.

6. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling - This is the only book in the series that I do not own my own copy.  It got overlooked the year my parents decided to finished my collection. I'd love to have a completed set.

7. Legend, Prodigy and Champion by Marie Lu - I really enjoy this trilogy so far, and would love to own the set.

8. The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins - I really liked this trilogy up until the very end, but it's definitely worth owning.  I read my brother's copies of the books, but I wouldn't mind owning my own.

9. Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Salone - The cover on this book alone is enough for me to want to own it.

10. Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones - I love this movie and I just feel the need to own and read this book, even though I have heard that it is completely different from the movie.


  1. I have Cinder and Scarlet on my list too. I have heard nothing but good things about Cress and want to catch up!

  2. The 'Howl's Moving Castle' book IS very different from the movie, but they're both very good in their own ways. I've always thought it would be perfect if there was an audiobook version read by Christian Bale.
