Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing Me

Top Ten Tuesday

Thanks to the gals of The Broke and The Bookish for hosting this meme every week!

I very much multi-tasked on this list for both this post and the actual wishlist I’m giving to my parents :D. I’m also asking them for the Harry Potter new boxset, so who knows which of these I’ll actually get, haha. These are all books I’ve already read but don’t have a physical copy of. I really want to be able to pet them on my shelf and lend them to people because I loved them so much! I still haven’t read some of the books I received last year, so I don’t really want to ask for even more books that I don’t know if I’ll like or when I’ll fit in. This approach seems more productive :).

Above World Scarlet Shadow and Bone Siege and Storm Steelheart

I have ended up with a really strange assortment of books from series >.>. I have the second Above World book since I got it for review, but I read the first from the library, therefore I need Above World to balance my shelf ;-). I have Cinder, but borrowed Scarlet from the library as well *sigh*. I borrowed Shadow and Bone from the library and an ARC of Siege and Storm from a friend so I don’t have either of those D:. Finally, I have a signed ARC of Steelheart, but it is too precious to lend to all of the people I want to read this book, so I need a lending copy, haha!

Daughter of Smoke and Bone Days of Blood and Starlight Crash Bang The Deepest Night

More borrowed library books I tell ya! I listened to both DoS&B from library audiobooks so I don’t have these gorgeous books to look at D: I must fix this immediately! Or in a month, ya know >.>. Crash I listened to on audio as well but it was a review audiobook. Then Bang was another ARC book but I’ve given both my ARCs away because I knew I wanted a hardcover :). Finally, I still have my ARC of The Deepest Night, but it doesn’t have a cover image D: I must have that cover, it’s so pretty!

So basically, all my book wishes this year are for pretty covers and copies that I can lend to people to get them to read my favorite books, hehe. What are you wishing for? Do you ask for books that you’ve already read?

  2. Mmmmm lovely selection here Anya ^^ I can definitely get behind needing physical copies of DoS&B and DoB&S :D And YUP I agree, an autographed Steelheart is MUCH too precious to lend out :O I have an arc of Scarlet so I definitely need a real copy for that one too! And the Grisha books are my most coveted wishlist item haha I hope you got ALL of these AND the new HP boxset!! Happy belated Christmas hun ♥

  3. I didn’t ask for many books, but I did get a copy of Lean In to lend :) Merry Christmas!

  4. Jessica@a GREAT read says:

    OOoh very nice! Hope you get some, if not all of these for Christmas!

    Here’s my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  5. There are way too many books that I’d love to get as gifts. But I’m pretty sure I’ve gotten all my gifts for this holiday season, none of them were books (which is fine, because I already have a ton to read anyway).

    • Haha, so true! I got a bunch of giftcards that I am trying to decide if they will go to textbooks or fun books >.> *decisions*

  6. Aww … so many incomplete collections. This is why I’ve all but given up on trying to buy ebooks. Even if the price is right, I know I prefer having shelves overflowing with physical copies. And ebooks do not a beautiful home library make.

    This Christmas I asked for nothing, and when the parents wouldn’t accept that answer, I asked for socks. :)

    • So true! Ebooks are really handy to read in the car for me now since I have the backlit ereader, but I don’t have easy access to the kindle books I bought since I switched ereaders, a problem that physical books don’t have!


  7. The new HP box set looks really cool! I have the red one (with the white covers). Great list, hope you get all the books you asked for tomorrow ;)

  8. I would love the new box set but I didn’t ask for it. I have the books in ebook, hc, pb, and audio. I just felt it might be a little overboard for me personally LOL :) (though I still might get it )

    • Haha, I actually don’t have a HP set currently since I let my parents keep the set we all originally read, so I can totally justify it ;-)

  9. Oh I really want that shine new Harry Potter box set too! And I wouldn’t mind physical copies of Barduga’s series either.
