Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bring Me

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1. Fables Vol. 1: Legends in Exile by Bill Willingham - I've been dancing around this for a while now and I've made a decision to dive head first into this series.  It sounds like everything I've ever wanted in a graphic novel/comic bind up.

2. Rat Queen Vol. 1: Sass & Sorcery by Kurtis J. Weibe - I've heard good things about this series and I just want to start it.  Kickass female leads is all I need to know in order to read this.

3. Ms. Marvel Vol. 1: No Normal by G. Willow Willson - Superheroes are my jam and this comic has been on my radar since it began.  I would love to see this under the Christmas tree this year!

4. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer (Hard Cover) - I have all the other books, but I somehow managed not to buy this one.  I want it on my shelf.

5. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: The Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling - It's beautiful and I want it.

6. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab - I've never read any of her books, but I really want to and this one seems like a great one to start with.  I wouldn't mind seeing this on Christmas morning!

7. Something Real by Heather Demetrios - I've wanted this book since I found out it was coming out.  I haven't picked it up because it hasn't been in my line of sight, but I know I'd read it so fast if I owned it.

8. The Fade Out by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips - I would love to own this. Aside from the cover being beautiful, it's a film noir murder mystery kind of story.

9. Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan - It's a book about a bookstore and the cover alone gives it right to a space on my bookshelves.

10. Jackaby by William Ritter - I'd love a copy of this book.  I haven't read it yet, but I really like the cover and I've heard great things about it.  Santa could definitely bring this for me.


  1. I read and enjoyed Fables volume 1! Its an interesting twist on stories that are well known!

  2. Something Real was so fun and I just read Jackaby and really really enjoyed it!!!!! :) I hope you get some others on this list too...the HP book looks gorgeous! Have a happy holiday!

  3. Rat Queens is awesome. Hope Santa brings you all your wonderful wishes!

  4. I would love the Illustrated Harry Potter! I couldn't bring myself to spend the money on it last month. It is so gorgeous that I just need someone to buy it for me. Maybe my family got the hint since I was totally telling them I wanted this.
    Thanks for sharing and happy holidays!

  5. Ms. Marvel, A Darker Shade of Magic, and Beastly Bones are all awesome!! :)

    I hope you find some of these under your tree!

  8. YES to the Illustrated Edition of HP - I can't believe that I didn't think to add that onto my list this week myself XD GAH! I hope you get A Darker Shade of Magic and that you love it as much as I did - we'll have to chat once you do read it ;) Scarlet is definitely a must - especially if you have the rest of the series! Oh and Miss Marvel's a good one, I want to read that one too...I've heard lots of good things! I hope you get ALL of these under the tree this year my dear ♥
