This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is one big Dear Santa letter. I like to think big when it comes to Santa. I mean, he’s all about magic, right? I am sure he will have no problem squeezing these ten little gifts onto his sleigh. Also, I am totally ok with taking a rain check. Get all the prezzies to the good little boys and girls and swing by my place later. December 26 works for me. Here’s my Santa wish list:
1. Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. I have read them all and would love to own them. You know, for when my nephews come hang out.
2. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. I used to have a complete set, but I am missing pieces. The books that are gone have been loaned out and not returned and I am fine with that, but I think it’s time to rebuild my collection. Santa could help with that!
3. Goliath by Scott Westerfeld. I have Leviathan and Behemoth. They are sad and lonely with out Goliath.
4. The Map of Time and The Map of the Sky by Felix Palma. I have been meaning to read these books ever since I saw them at the library. The covers are gorgeous and Scott Westerfeld blurbed them. I even have reliable confirmation from my friend that they are awesome. Maybe I should have them permanently at my house. What do you say, Santa?
5. Endlessly by Kiersten White. See #3. Paranormalcy and Supernaturally are so lonely on my shelf.
6. The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness. I have read the first book in the series and really want to finish the second and third books. Maybe if they were handy at home…
7. A Little House Christmas: Holiday Stories from the Little House Books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. It is Christmas, after all and this is one of my favorite Christmas books.
8. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Why don’t I already own this one?
9. Elemental by Antony John. It’s no secret that I have a little author crush on Antony John. I mean, how could I not? His books are wonderful and he is such a nice guy. But anyway. I really need his new book.
10. Fables by Bill Willingham. I want to own them. And read them over and over. And since I am being greedy, dear Santa, can I have the hard cover volumes, please?
One last thing and it is not a book, but I MUST own them.
Thanks, you’re the best Santa!
