Top Ten Tuesday (6)

For more information on how to participate in Top Ten Tuesday and this week's topic, visit The Broke and the Bookish for details! 

Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings
1. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson - It's written by Maureen freaking Johnson. I can't believe I've managed to keep from getting this one so for so long. 

2. Blackbringer & Silksinger (Dreamdark #1 & #2) by Laini Taylor - I've been loving Taylor's other works, but I've had trouble finding a reasonably priced copy of the latter Dreamdark book (and I'm hesitant to buy the first one without the sequel). Maybe Santa will have better luck. 

3. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - The hype has been insane for this story. I need this book. 

4. (preorder of) Hana by Lauren Oliver - A Delirium short story! 
5. (preorder of) Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler - I love Sarah's books, and I'm sure this one won't be any exception. If only Santa could bring this one early ;)

6. Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore - Witches. Hot cowboy neighbors. That is all. 

7. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins - I really don't know why I haven't read this yet. Maybe once I actually have a copy I'll start reading it. 

8. Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler - I honestly haven't got a clue why I don't own a finished copy of this one (I own two of Twenty Boy Summer, so I guess that makes up for it), but obviously, I need one. 
9.  Bloodlines by Richelle Mead - Anyone who's read this blog for a couple years will know I'm a huge Richelle Mead/VA fan, which makes it really weird that I still haven't read or bought Bloodlines.   

10. Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork - I've heard nothing but wonderful things about this book, so it would be a great one to receive for the holidays! 

What books are you hoping to receive during the holidays?



  1. Great list!
    I'd like to read "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer" by Michelle Hodkin as well!

  2. Oh Lola is such a good read! I hope you'll like it! :)
    Hope Santa will listen to you wishlist and bring them to you :)

  3. Great list - Fixing Delilah and Lola are on my list too, and I really want Mara Dyer and Bittersweet, even though they're not on my list :)

  4. I bet you will love Marcelo and The Real World! I hope it's in your stocking!

  5. I want a pre-order of Bittersweet myself! I LOOOOOOOOOVE VA but I'm putting of Bloodlines until book 2 or 3 come out, I hate waiting after each book -.- Fixing Delilah was also on my list!

    My TTT ((:
    -thank you&come again.

  6. I really like your list. I need to get Texas Gothic.

    Unbecoming is so good! So is Lola. Both are must reads.

  7. lola and the boy next door is on my list too.

  8. Great list! I really want to read Hana as well. Although it does make me think of the movie Hanna about the deadly teen killer, hah! ;)
