Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing Me

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!

This is actually a really exciting topic, because it’s different then one I’ve done in a while. Obviously, Santa can’t bring me books that haven’t come out by December 25th. So I get to show you guys some older books that I really want to get my hands on!

The Gathering1. The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong

I’ve heard great things about this series, and I enjoyed her YA series as well. I’ve been thinking about these for a while, but I still don’t have them!

2. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. SmithStatistical

Apparently, this is supposed to be a really adorable book. I don’t know exactly how I’ll react to it, which is why I’d love Santa to bring it instead of buying it myself. šŸ˜›

Everneath3. Everneath by Brodi Ashton

I almost, almost picked this book up once. Instead, I decided to pick up a book that turned into my most popular bookish rant ever. I guess that was a good thing (sort of), but that door closed right there. I still want to read it, though!

4. Scarlet by A. C. GaughenScarletUS.indd

I’ve heard fantastic things about this one, and I admit the idea is growing on me. I actually wasn’t sure at first, but you in the blogoverse have convinced me it might be worth a go!

Wentworth Hall5. Wentworth Hall by Abby Grahame

Yes, I’m a Downton Abbey fan. Yes, that is the pure, single reason why this book interests me. I have no shame.

6. While He Was Away by Karen SchreckWhile He was Away

Sometimes I shy away from contemporary YA romances because they are always really hit or miss with me. But Santa could bring me this one and I’d be happy!

Hemlock7. Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock

This has made my shortlist a few million times, but I’ve never actually walked away with it. I can’t wait to, though!

8. The Hunt by Andrew FukudaThe Hunt

Vampires. I still have the bite. I can’t help myself. And apparently these are supposed to be pretty good.

For Darkness Shows the Stars9. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund

This has me from the moment I saw the cover. It’s just never hit the apex of my list.

10. Seraphina by Rachel HartmanSeraphina

Tamora Pierce told me I should read this book. I NEED TO READ THIS BOOK.


Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books On My Spring To-Be-Read List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish.

Okay, I have to face it, my to-be-read list is SKY HIGH. Picking ten for the spring is going to be … death defying. Let’s give it a try! (All links will go to Goodreads unless otherwise noted.)

1. Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins

In case you missed my Waiting on Wednesday post last week, I WANT THIS BOOK. If Amazon’s shipping department wasn’t the worst, I’D HAVE IT BY NOW. But I don’t. And the wait is KILLER.

2. The Gathering Storm by Robin Bridges

Really, as far as I’m concerned, you can’t go wrong with this book. It’s historical fiction in the fact that it takes place in Russia circa 1888. It’s fantasy because the main character is both a Duchess and a necromancer. This book’s blurb caught me on the first look, and I can’t wait to read it.

3. Die for Me by Amy Plum

Okay, Anna and the French Kiss maaaay have made me have an instant love of books set in Paris, which I discovered at line 2 of the blurb. Then I read the REST of the blurb and went DUDE. Let’s see if the plotline is cool enough to overcome the star-crossed lovers thing! You can bet you’ll hear which way this one goes as soon as I get my hands on it.

4. Balthazar by Claudia Gray

I’ll admit, my interest inĀ the Evernight seriesĀ continued to wane as the books went on, but it seems that this one is completley unrelated to the Evernight books and characters except for Balthazar, so sign me up! I was a huge sucker for this guy, and I’m not ashamed to admit it!

5. The Selection by Kiera Cass

Okay, this is one book where I read the blurb and I went I WANT NOW. NOW. I have no idea why, but I just fell in love right there. Plus, the CW is making it into a TV series so DUDE. I have to at least read the book so I can watch how much the series messes with the plot line. šŸ˜›

6. City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare


7. Insurgent by Veronica Roth

This is the sequel to Divergent, which I thought actually lived up to a lot of the hype it got. Enough is said.

8. The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

MORE VAMPIRE ACADEMY WORLD. MORE ADRIAN. GIVE ME NOW. If you don’t believe the CAPS is pertinent, read my review of Bloodlines!

9. Grave Mercy by R. L. LaFevers

Girl escapes arranged marriage, becomes assassin. Seriously, do I need to tell you anymore? Also, for the life of me I can’t get this cover to actually show up here, so you’re just going to have to click the link to check it out. šŸ˜›

10. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund

I am a horrible person who judges books by their cover–only literally, I swear! However, CHECK OUT THIS COVER. Then CHECK OUT THE BLURB. Really interested in getting my hands on this one!
