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


This week the theme of Top Ten Tuesday, which is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is books that I wouldn't mind Santa bringing this Christmas.  Well, like usual, I have more than ten to include but I'll try to narrow it down.


Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater


The Walled City by Ryan Graudin


The Martian by Andy Weir


Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel


Skin Game by Jim Butcher


Schizo by Nic Sheff


Red Rising by Pierce Brown


This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner


Revival by Stephen King


The Body Electric by Beth Revis



Bonus:

The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters


The Fall by Bethany Griffin



What do you think of my list?  Do we both want the same thing for Christmas this year?

  1. Great list Lauren!
    I definitely want Walled City, The Martian, The Body Electric, Station Eleven, The Fall, Red Rising, and Revival too! I still haven't read These Broken Stars and the Raven Cycle series yet. Definitely have to read those soon. Other than these, I haven't heard of any other books from your list. Now I'm gonna check these out on Goodreads!

    1. Thanks! The Raven Cycle has been fantastic so far-reaching it comes with high marks from me! Skin Game is the most recent installment of The Dresden Files which is one of my favorites. :)

  4. Oh! The Martian is available for request on Blogging for Books right now! I almost requested it, but I was afraid that I'd hate it.

    I also want to read The Body Electric. It looks good!

  7. I've heard the Raven Cycle is really good. :) I want to read The Walled City. I've heard a bit about Red Rising. This Shattered World is so pretty. I haven't really heard of the other books, aside from Body Electric. Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)
