*Top 10 Tuesday it's a weekly meme hosted 
  by The Broke and the Bookish

Christmas is just around the corner, as we all know.
So this week the theme is Top Ten books I wouldn’t mind Santa bringing me. And since Santa can work miracles, we are putting in a few books that come out next year... he is Santa after all ;) Santa already knows what we want (I hope), but this may give him even more ideas :)


1. Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #3) by Laini Taylor
It doesn’t come out until April but I DON’T CARE!! I want to be able to hold it in my hands and pet it and STARE. I mean, LOOK at the PRETTY

2. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Over the past few weeks I've heard SO many wonderful things about this book! I feel like this was one of those “It” books this year. Can't wait to meet you! Can you be under my tree, please?!

3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green 
I'm ashamed to say I've never read this one yet! I loved Paper Towns so much! Why don't I own this book yet? I want to read it so bad!

4. A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1) by George R.R. MartinI’m a huge fan of George R.R. Martin and VERY behind on his books. I am hoping for a complete set this Christmas. =]

5. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter #1) by J.K. RowlingA signed copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone- A girl can dream, right?

1. Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater
But any book by Maggie Stiefvater would do.

2. Hold Me Closer, Necromancer (Necromancer #1) by Lish McBrideThis book is actually one of my favorite of all time, and also look at that cover - its so awesomely vintage... It would look so good on my shelf.

3. Paper Towns by John GreenI love this book. It made me laugh, it made me cry. Its all warm and fuzzy, its book about friendship and love, its a great present.

4. The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick NessThis is an amazing series and i want the whole set - all 3 of them. I'm wishing for this for two year in the row. Maybe this year my wish will come true *fingers crossed!

5. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie PerkinsI loved Anna and the French Kiss, i loved Lola and the Boy Next Door and now I'm ready to loved this one. It comes out in March but Santa is all about fulfilling wishes and I've been a good girl this year...

    I think it is safe to say that a signed copy of Harry Potter would be the best book present ever! Great list you two!

    Happy Holidays!

    My Top Ten

  2. I've read some of the books on your list, but I particularly enjoyed Eleanor & Park. I hope you get these books for Christmas! Have a very happy Christmas!

  3. I loved Paper Towns. Of the John Green books I've read so far, it is my favorite. I even gave it to someone for Christmas this year.

  4. Great picks! I would not mind a signed HP as well :D
    I enjoyed Green and Ness a lot. I still have to start Perkins and Rowell.
    I mostly picked the ones I don't own yet. :)
    Happy holidays!

    Oh nice! Love Harry Potter! Hope you snag a copy of that! I saw the Sinner cover just today and am so excited for that one! But as I might have said in my post, I am totally blanking on Cole! I feel pretty confident I'll remember him when I start. Even as I write this vague recollections of him are surfacing! Just got to hold tight to those til July!

    Thanks for visiting my Top Ten post!

  6. You guys have a great list between the two of you. Yep to all of Jansa's! Sinner and Papertowns...definitely! Great choices and thanks for stopping by my TTT yesterday!

    Sandy @ Somewhere Only We Know

  7. We all share that opinion! Thanks! :) Happy holidays!

  8. Thanks! Christmas is later here (around jan. 6th) so there is still hope for us (at least to receive some of them) but i think, as always, it'll be us buying them for our-self!

  9. See, like i said - a great present! i wish some of my friends were that considered! :) Its my favorite two, it was one of the few i lough out loud till tears (especially on the car-crash scene!)

  10. Green and Ness are the best, and you should start on Perkins and Rowell. :)

  11. Merry belated Christmas and thanks, we try to put Gods & Monsters on every list that is possible in hope that Ms. Taylor will see it and give it to us early (one can dream right!?)

  12. You remember him, you have to! He had a bigger role in the later books (2 and 3). He was very broody and fun to read. Well, never mind, you'll remember him when the book comes out!

  13. Thanks and thanks for stopping by two!

  14. We hope two, we celebrate Christmas later so there is still time! we'll see! thanks for stopping by!
