TTT - 10 Books I Hope Santa Brings

This top 10 weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and can be found HERE.  Each week they focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading. 

This week, with Christmas fast approaching, we are looking at books we want Santa to leave beneath the tree.  My husband pretty much asks for a list every year so this will pretty much be an exercise in recollection - can I remember what I asked for???







I think this would be awesome to have and then maybe eventually we can plan road trips to see some of these creepy, haunted locations.

I already ordered this one with Christmas money from Grandpa (yep, total cheating here!)

Of course I am in need of the new illustrated edition.

I'm not sure why I'm so drawn to this book but I would like to have a copy and it does seem perfect for the season.

This made the list before I started seeing mixed reviews so I'm hoping I manage to enjoy it if Santa leaves it for me.

I want to start this series before the television series starts.

I need this so I can finally continue on with the series.  

I am determined to start this series in 2018 so I've been trying to add them to my collection.

If you are interested in any of these, clicking on the cover should take you to the Goodreads page.

So what books are you hoping to find under your tree this year???

    1. It's not my normal choice of reading material but something about it spoke to me for some reason.

    1. Probably a combination of both - which I consider good. You can't be too boring huh?

  10. What a great list! I bought the first book in the Kevin Hearne series in audio just recently. I haven't read Harry Potter but those illustrated books are very tempting. I hope Santa bring you all of these!

    1. I would say "You haven't read Harry Potter?" but I'm sure you get that a lot. I'm not as huge of fan as some. I like them well enough but these illustrated ones are awesome!

    1. I went on a haunted ghost tour of our city a few years ago at Halloween and am curious if any end up in the book. Also, my hometown has a "devil baby" in the cemetery that I remember a friend and I sneaking in to see one night when we were in high school. The picture on the tombstone is supposed to glow red at night. We freaked ourselves out before we even looked!

  15. Oooo, thanks for the tip about that Mr. Dickens book. Hadn't seen that one before. A Christmas Carol is one of my fave books and that cover is very intriguing!

  16. I love your list. I hope you get the illustrated HP book. I have it and it is so beautiful. The new Maggie Stiefvater book looks good too. I love her stories. I met her once and she drew a picture of a horse in my copy of The Scorpio Races.

    1. That's awesome. I've not read a lot of her books but I did enjoy Shiver (which I think a lot of people don't like).
