Top Ten Tuesday: Santa Could Bring Me

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1. The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker - I had a friend tell me to read this, and I trust her opinion with out a shadow of a doubt.  Plus, the pages on this book are black and it's gorgeous!

2. What It Is by Lynda Berry - This book is b-e-a-utiful.  The artwork is incredibly intricate and insane.  I would love to have the book for my collection so that I could go back and look at the drawings again and again.

3. Legend, Prodigy, and Champion by Marie Lu - I would love to get these books for Christmas either separately or as a box set, it doesn't matter to me.  I love this trilogy and I don't actually own it, so it's time to change that!

4. Cinder and Scarlett by Marissa Meyer - I own Cress, but Santa could bring me hardcover copies of the first two books to match.  They would look so good on my shelf together.

5. The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick - I browse this book almost every time I'm in a bookstore because the artwork is so incredible.  I would love to own this story because while I've seen the movie and read bits and pieces of it over the years, I've never read it cover to cover.

6. Gilda Joyce: Psychic Investigator and Gilda Joyce: The Dead Drop by Jennifer Allison - I own the second, third and fifth book in this series and man is it annoying not having them all.  I haven't even started it yet because I don't have the first book and I really want to read them.  Santa could solve this problem.

7. Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan - This book is beautiful and for that reason alone I want it on my bookshelf.  I also want to read it, but that came after I drooled over this cover for a while.

8. Something Real by Heather Demetrios - This book has a cool cover and I have a feeling that my bookshelf would welcome it with open arms.

9. Expertus by Holly Lauren - This book is not at my library and I highly doubt it will ever come to my library, so it would be amazing to see Santa bring me this book.  I really enjoyed the first book and want to read the sequel badly; it ended on a pretty good cliffhanger.

10. Jackaby by William Ritter - I just found out about this book and all I know is that it's supposed to be mix between Sherlock and Doctor Who to a certain extend.  That's all I need to know, plus the interesting title/name to want to own this book.


  1. Loved the Legend series and The Lunar Chronicles! I hope these find their way to your shelves!

    Happy Holidays!
