Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing This Year

Monday, December 22, 2014

I don't have a Christmas tree (cue gasps), so Santa — feel free to leave these on my side table :p

1. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
There have been so many people on YouTube talking about this grand historical fiction novel following a blind girl and orphan boy during World War II. I am really fascinated by anything that takes place during WWII but have yet to read a book during that time period!

2. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
It is rare for me to start a fantasy series (let alone pick up a fantasy book!) but I want to challenge myself and expand into different genres. I do love my contemporary though :p

3. The Rosie Project by Graeme Samson
I've wanted to read this book for a while, but I haven't been able to find a copy in the Canadian cover!

4. Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas
Albertine from Lovely Rose Petal just finished reading this book and loved it, so I couldn't not add it to my list.

5. Falling into Place by Amy Zhang
I haven't heard a single bad thing about Falling into Place, so it needs to be physically added to my TBR pile soon.

I'm sure Santa has access to ARCs, so here are five that I wouldn't mind getting a bit earlier ;)

6. I Was Here by Gayle Forman
I would really like this book in my hands right now (as you may have inferred from my first Waiting on Wednesday post last month.) Like I mentioned, I'll read anything Gayle writes!

7. The Heir by Kiera Cass
Even though I think this series should have ended as a trilogy, I still can't help but be excited to read this. The cover is B-E-A-U-TIFUL!

8. The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall
This is Hall's debut novel so I don't know how she is as a writer, but the description of this mystery thriller is good enough for me to want to read it. (Even if Santa doesn't bring me an advanced copy, I will find a way to read this as soon as it comes out!)

9. 99 Days by Katie Cotugno
Although the topic of cheating doesn't interest me, Jillian from Bookish and Nerdy likes Katie Cotugno as a writer, so ... I would like to read this book. Yes.

10. A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas
I REALLY love fairytales, so seeing a new retelling (from another debut author!) based on Sleeping Beauty is very exciting. It takes place after she wakes up and has to marry a prince, but I secretly hope she runs away :p

I know I chose ten, but which ONE book would you want to see under your Christmas tree? Have you read any of the ones I picked? If you were Santa, which books would you bring your friends who don't read?


  1. Gayle Forman!!! I love her and absolutely can't wait for her new book! Same for 99 days! It looks so good! Hopefully Santa leaves you some goodies under the tree this year! Here's my Top Ten!

  2. I definitely recommend Falling Into Place and Dangerous Girls! ERMAGERSH Dangerous Girls is a whirlwind of a book ride. *gasps for breathe* I was so shocked at the ending. XD

    I love Gayleo Forman's books, but I Was Here didn't end up floating my boat. Boo. But I read Where She Went just a few weeks back and *swoons* I adore her writing style. XD Also her characters. They are adorable.

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

  3. Thank you Jessica! I didn't love or hate If I Stay/Where She Went, but I'm really excited for I Was Here!

  4. SO many people have been saying great things about Dangerous Girls! I really need to borrow a copy from the library soon. I liked Where She Went, but If I Stay was just okay to me. We'll see what happens with I Was Here soon ... I guess it could go either way!
