Top Ten Tuesday
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish back in June 2010. It is currently hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and, as is stated on the blog, it was “born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.”
Happy Christmas Eve, y’all! I actually have the day off and I’m planning on doing a lot of relaxing with the family and just generally being lazy af. I still have presents to wrap because I’m a slacker. I’ll get to it once the kids are distracted. They’ve been on a Star Wars binge since we went and saw the newest movie, so perhaps I’ll switch on Disney+ and take advantage of that time for some intense wrapping.
Speaking of presents, this week’s TTT is all about what books you hope to find wrapped prettily beneath your Christmas tree. Now, I don’t tend to ask for books for Christmas. Weird, right? It’s probably the control freak in me, but I would rather get a gift card to, say, Barnes & Noble so I can buy whatever I’m feeling at the moment. I can also never think of a specific book I want when someone asks me because I want SO MANY BOOKS! In the spirit of this TTT, though, let’s say I finally got my stuff together and asked for some books I’ve been dying to read. Here’s my list in no particular order!
- The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
- The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
- Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
- The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
- Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
- Caraval by Stephanie Garber
- Spellslinger by Sebastien de Castell
- The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
- All Systems Red by Martha Wells
As you may have noticed, all of these books are the first in a series. They are all series that I’ve been interested in starting for awhile, but just haven’t picked up the first book. So if I happened to discover these under my tree, I would be pretty pumped!
So what books are you hoping for this holiday season? Have you read any of these series? Let me know in the comments!
And, as always, happy reading!
