Top Ten Tuesday: Books we want from Santa

December 24, 2013 Randomz 16


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where people who love lists and books can share their favorites based on a certain topic each week.

This week’s topic is what books we’d like to get from Santa.



Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi
This is the final installment in the “Through the Ever Night” trilogy, and I can’t wait to read how it all ends! Aria and Perry forever!

Hans Christian Anderson: Classic Fairy Tales
I’ve always been fascinated by fairy tales and I recently discovered I do not have this set on my book shelf. Since most of Disney’s stories came from Anderson, it would be lovely to read the actual storylines.

Teardrop by Lauren Kate
I loved Kate’s “Fallen” series about fallen angels and was excited to learn she is stepping into the realm of folklore and mythology.

The Dancing Master by Julie Klassen
I first discovered Klassen two years ago, at my local library, and have been hooked on her work ever since. She writes regency fiction, so obviously I love it. Klassen writes about obscure or taboo subject from the era, which makes each story unique.

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufmam
I keep seeing this book pop up everywhere, so I figure it’s time I crack it open. Plus, this may be shallow, but the cover looks really cool!

Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
I have heard nonstop good things about Cress and would really appreciate it if Santa could bring me the first two books in the Lunar Chronicles series so I can catch up!

Flame  by Amy Kathleen Ryan
Santa, I CAN’T WAIT A FEW MORE WEEKS! You have magic and can get me this early. I loved the first two books of Ryan’s Sky Chasers series. Space opera + ya = hells yes.

Chasing the Star Garden by Melanie Karsak
This would be my first foray into steampunk gaslamp, but the plot sounds wonderful and the cover is all kinds of gorgeous. From Goodreads: Melanie Karsak’s Chasing the Star Garden takes readers on a thrilling adventure from the gritty opium dens of gaslamp London to the gem-colored waters of the ancient world. Lily Stargazer, a loveable but reckless airship racer with a famous lover and shattered past, reluctantly plunges into a centuries-old mystery in a romantic adventure best described as Dan Brown meets Mary Shelley.

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Hands down my favorite book I read in 2013, and one of my favorites ever. I added it to my top ten books of all time list but I don’t own it yet. I can’t underscore how much I love this book. If you haven’t read it yet, please, please do. But be warned. The sequel doesn’t come out until 2015. TWENTY-FIFTEEN! How will I survive? By re-reading Seraphina over and over again. 


So, what are you hoping to get from Santa? We’ll keep our fingers crossed for you!

    I’ve not heard of Klassen and I LOVE Regency era historical fiction so that looks exciting and am glad to learn of her! I’ve also heard very good and intriguing things about the Marissa Meyer series – I’ll be interested to see what you think. Seraphina will definitely be on my top ten of the year list – it was amazing! I hope it becomes a part of your collection!

      We love Regency fiction, too! You won’t be disappointed with Klassen. My favorites are The Girl in the Gatehouse, The Tutor’s Daughter and The Silent Governess. If you read one, let us know what you think!
