Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me


For future Top Ten Tuesday topics & info on how to participate click here!

Jen's Top Ten Books She Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Her:

1.  The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: Borrowed from the library but got super busy and was never able to finish it.
2.  The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay: Over the past few weeks I've heard SO many wonderful things about this book! I want to read it so bad!
3.  Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: I'm ashamed to say I've never read this one yet!
4.  The Last Time I Saw Paris by Lynn Sheene: It's a historical fiction book set in Paris.  Sounds like a winner to me!
5.  The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen:  Her previous books I've read I've really enjoyed so of course I want to read another book by her!
6.  The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan: I love how the book is set up literally like a dictionary (well, I think it is anyway, I haven't actually opened the book) with the words and then they meaning as they relate to the story.
7.  Beauty Queens by Libba Bray: I've heard it is hilarious and it's been awhile since I've read a funny book!
8.  How Music Works by John Powell:  This books sounds so interesting!
9.  The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemmingway: I've wanted to read this book for what feels like forever but for a tiny book it is always so expensive at the bookstore!
10. Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer: I loved Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close so much! Why don't I own this book yet?
What are your Top Ten Books you hope Santa brings?

  1. OOH, The Last Time I Saw Paris sounds so good! I'm totally adding that to my wishlist, hah! And yes, so many people are raving about The Sea of Tranquility - don't wait for Santa, it's on NetGalley :) I'll be starting it soon too!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I just read The Night Circus a couple of months ago, and really enjoyed it. It was different, but good. And your life cannot be complete until you've read Before I Fall -- seriously one of the best books of ALL TIME.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I really really want a copy of The Night Circus too but I want a hard copy and for the life of me I haven't been able to find one :(

  9. Everything Is Illuminated is a wonderful book - one I'd like to make time to re-read. The Sun Also Rises is a classic too - the dialogue is hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh, The Night Circus is fantastic. I think I need to reread it and soon. And The Sea of Tranquility. I just finished it a few hours ago. Gorgeous book.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I just got The Sea of Tranquility and I can not wait to get into it! I've heard great things and I'm expecting something amazing.

    I'm hoping I get The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. Finally. I should have read it forever ago. Santa, if you bring it, I'll read it!

  15. Everything is Illuminated is such a brilliant book! It is so beautiful and tragic and whimsical. I really enjoyed Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close as well, but I think Everything is Illuminated is still my favourite of his. The movie is also beautiful but quite different. Still haven't seen the new movie.

    Here is my wish list: uberrandom

  16. Before I Fall is AMAZING. It's one of my all-time favourites. It's so special.

    ReplyDelete
  17. If I'm only loaded, I'd give you The Night Circus. I love love love it! <3 And The Lover's Dictionary is one of my favorite books and what got me into David Levithan. And I recently got approved for The Sea of Tranquility over at NetGalley and I'm loving it!

    Btw Belle, I recently transferred to a new book blog. I'm whoopeeyoo. Haha! :)

  18. I wanted to add The Night Circuse onto my list too. But then I realised I had ten already. So many books I want. But I would love The Night Circus. Everyone has great things to say about it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I only read 'The Sun Also Rises' from your list. I've been planing to read Night Circus, Peach Keeper & Lover's Dictionary for some time now. I even think I got them all on my Kindle. I loved Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close also. I didn't even know about Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer but now I want to read it too. Great list!

  53. I have a Lauren Oliver book, Delirium, which I have wanted to read for too long now. Night Circus was a great read! Here's hoping Santa is good to you. Thanks for hosting TTT.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Thank you so much for hosting this fun meme! This is only my second time, but I love the topics and how challenging they are!! And I think I can honestly say that I don't think I have heard of the books on your list. I kind of stay in my little bubble when it comes to books, but this may be the push I need to look at other things.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Fun list topic!
    The music book on your list sounds really interesting!

    ReplyDelete

  58. I'd love to read more of Libba Bray's work and Beauty Queens sounds great! Should have put it on my list for Santa!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Beauty Queens is funny - but it is a very smart funny. And the funniness actually has a purpose, too. Also, if you like audiobooks, this one is amazing!

    I am going to see Libba Bray at an author event this Sunday, and I am so excited. I hope she can sign Beauty Queens for me.

  82. I'm embarrassed to say I got halfway through Night Circus and still haven't finished it. I think I'm scared to learn the ending. Before I Fall and Beauty Queens is sitting on my shelf waiting and waiting for me to finally make time for them. Good list. I really like the Top 10's lately! Thanks for the fun!

  83. The Night Circus is one of my favorite books of all time, I think. Amazing imagery in that one. Before I Fall was really good, too. I hated, however, Beauty Queens, it wasn't my cup of tea.

    My Top 10
