Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings


 Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
For future Top Ten Tuesday topics through February, check them out here!



Jen's Top Ten Books She Hopes Santa Brings

  1. Anything Goes: A Biography of the Roaring Twenties by Lucy Moore: I wish I could have been in my twenties in the 1920's.  
  2. A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly:  Ever since I read Revolution last year I've been itching to read this book!  Yet for some reason I still haven't purchased it myself.
  3. The Lost Girls by Jennifer Baggett, Holly C. Corbett, Amanda Pressner:  I pretty much want their life and I know I will be insanely jealous when I read this book but I haven't read a good travel book in far too long.
  4. Rebel Angles by Libba Bay:  I read A Great and Terrible Beauty a couple years ago and still haven't finished the trilogy.  It's one of those books that I never think to look for when I'm in the bookstore.
  5. A Mango-Shaped Space by Wendy Mass:  This book has been on my Goodreads TBR list since I first joined the site!
  6. The Paris Wife by Paula McLain:  A couple weeks ago I downloaded a sample chapter and wanted so badly to keep reading!  But I must resist the urge to shop for myself so close to the holidays.
  7. The Stormchasers by Jenna Blum:  I really want to read this book but tornadoes freak me out so much.
  8. Everlasting by Angie Frazier:  This book sounds really good.  Unfortunately, it's too overpriced for me (both the hardcover and e-book were both pretty expensive last time I looked).
  9. What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen:  Dessen's most recent book that I've been wanting to read.  I'm impatiently waiting for the paperback edition though...a hardcover wouldn't match with the rest of her books I own!
  10. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson:  Okay, so I know this book isn't even out yet BUT Santa's elves must have connections to the book publishing world, right?

  9. I loved Morgan Matson's 'Amy and Rogers Epic Detour' I can't wait to read her next novel. and yes the twenties sounds fabulous...

  10. Great list! I'm glad to see someone else who has to have uniformity in their books. I returned The Iron Prince to wait for the regular paperback to come out so it will match the first three, lol!

  11. Great list. Lots of books I haven't heard of, except for Sarah Dessen. I have that book on my shelf just begging to be read.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I just finished The Paris Wife and I really liked it! I hope you get a copy.

  17. I have a library copy of The Paris Wife sitting on my shelf, but am hoping my book club will read it later this year, so I'm waiting. Luckily, I have quite a few other books to be read!

    I just hope we gave Santa enough time with these lists . . .

  18. The Paris Wife is high on my list, too. A firend told me that she would recommend it to people who know the ups and downs of marriages and that they would possibly enjoy it more. Anyway, I am not married.

    Sorry, my link is a little messed up.

  22. Stormchasers! I've been rather interested in them since seeing that Bill Paxton/Helen Hunt film, "Twister".

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have The Lost Girls, and I can't wait to read it! I love to travel and I just want to read about all of their adventures.

    And The Paris Wife sounds good too! Though I'm merely a sucker for Paris itself...

  35. I have read 5 of Dessen's books but I haven't read What Happened to Goodbye yet, I'm kind of scared to. Haha I'm the same! I saw it on half priced books for cheap but all my Dessen books were paperback and I didn't want to ruin the pattern. LOL at the santa's elves comment, if only they did!! Matson sophomore novel even sounds better then her debut. I'm excited for it!

  36. I've never read any of the books on your list but what a fun topic! It even drew me out of my grad school stupor long enough to write up my own post! Merry Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hee hee, I changed Santa to the Winter Fairy in my post. :P And I love love loved A Mango Shaped Space. Such a sweet book! What Happened to Goodbye is great also! :)
