Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. There is a new subject each week and this week's topic is "Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me".

Since I prefer reading my books on my Kindle, here are the books I'd buy if Santa brings me an Amazon gift card (yes I know I'm cheating by listing books that won't be published by Christmas but it is my list!):

The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead

I own the other two books and would like to add this to my virtual shelf. Richelle Mead's books are fun to reread and I definitely want my own copy.

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

I loved Cinder and having read the 5 chapter sampler of Scarlet, I can tell that I will love this futuristic retelling of Little Red Riding Hood

A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

I am looking forward to starting the second book in the Song of Ice and Fire saga but I know it is one I'll need to own. It will take me awhile to finish reading and I definitely need to read it as an e-book as it is over 700 pages!

Shades of Earth by Beth Revis

I haven't read book two yet (though it sits on my bookshelf) but I'll want to add book three to my collection.

Perfect Scoundrels by Ally Carter

I love Ally Carter's books and since I already own the first two books, I simply must have Perfect Scoundrels too!

The Chronicles of Downton Abbey by Jessica Fellowes

This is a coffee table kind of book for fans of the show. I liked the first one (The World of Downton Abbey) and wouldn't mind having this one either.

Reached by Ally Condie

I currently have this book checked out from my library but I want a copy for my Kindle too. I like the author's writing style and the Kindle lets me underline my favorite passages without defacing a library book :)

Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

I know this book will be on many people's lists for favorite books of 2012. I liked Daughter of Smoke and Bone enough to buy my own copy so I want to own this too.

Scent of Magic by Maria V. Snyder

I bough Touch of Power last year and read it earlier this year. I currently have a review copy of Scent of Magic but I'm pretty sure I'll want to own a finished copy also. 

Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson

I've heard really good things about this Regency romance novel. It even made it to the finals in the Goodreads Choice Awards for 2012 (it lost to Fifty Shades Freed-go figure). 


  1. I'm anxious to read Reached, too.

    Good luck! Hope Santa is listening.


  2. Edenbrooke looks beautiful. And I love Regency romances. :) I will have to read it!

  3. Great list! I need to get caught up on the Bloodlines series - I think you are right...I would like book two!! I also have the Daughter of Smoke and Bone, on my list and will probably want book two immediately I hear. Edenbrooke is new to me-- I will have to check it out!

  4. Great list. i loved ASoIaF (and I'm just freaking out because the next installment is coming around 2015 :( not soon enough).
    I also want half your list :)

    My TTT

  5. Cinder is on my list for Santa, and Scarlet was on my list last week for anticipated 2013 publications. :D WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT!!!

  6. I don't think it's cheating to put not-yet-released books on your list. Santa might be able to pull some strings for you ;-)

  7. Your Santa list starts out like mine:

    Indigo Spell
    Perfect Scoundrels

    We can always hope, right???

  8. Days of Blood and Starlight is also on my list. I am dying to read this book. I hope Santa is good to you this year.

    My TTT

  9. The Chronicles of Downton Abbey definitely looks like a great Christmas book-gorgeous glossy pages! I hope to page through it at stores although I may wait for after-Christmas sales to pick it up.
