10 Books I'd Like Santa To Bring Me

Merry Christmas, bookworms! The prompt for this week's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is fun and festive: what books would we like Santa to leave under our trees this year? This was insanely easy for me, as I've now got a whopping 541 books on my to-read list. Santa is a pretty powerful dude, so maybe he could throw a signed Harry Potter or something in there... and how about lifetime free Starbucks, tickets for an Antarctica cruise and the world's cutest boxer puppy while we're at it. ;)

These are all books I really want to read. The top row is made up of books that've been on my to-read list for-ev-er, and the bottom row is newer additions to the queue; the last two are sequels to books I've read recently. I'm pretty sure I'm going to love all of them.

(ETA: Santa must have heard me! I put this list together on Sunday, and yesterday in the mail arrived "The Likeness," a gift from one of my good friends! Yay!)

What books would you ask Santa for?

  1. My wish list is quite long too--although not quite as long as yours. I'm just hoping for a big gift cards so I can get some of my wish list books. :-) This is a great list. Americanah, Uprooted, All the Light We Cannot See . . . Those would be on my list too.

  2. My TBR list is insanely long, too, but since I can't own all the books, I often read first and buy afterward. (Libraries - I love libraries!) You've put together a wonderful and eclectic list. Uprooted was amazing, and One Summer was good -- I listened to the audio read by Bryson himself. And The Winter Sea is on my to-read list as soon as I have time; I got a copy last spring.

  3. I hope that you get these for Christmas!

  4. I own Mr. Mercedes and the follow up but they are two of the few King books I own but haven't read yet. I have heard a lot of people like them. I think I am gonna try to get Uprooted from the library. I have seen it around so much that I can no longer resist reading it.

  5. I should have included Uprooted on my list this week! I hope you do find it under your tree :) My TTT

  6. The Winter Sea was also on my TBR list for quite a while, and I'm SO glad I finally got it. Americanah is one of my favorite books of the last few years, and I've actually read it twice (I'm on my library's Community Read committee and it just won for 2016 - yay!) Adichie is a brilliant author, but I think everyone should read it for her perspective on race in America.


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
