Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings Tonight!

Posted December 23, 2013 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 32 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the other blog I write for, The Broke and the Bookish.

Merry Christmas Eve! Tonight is one of my very favorite nights of the entire Christmas season. I would like to pause my life and live in Christmas Eve for a few days. I love the magic and the anticipation. I have been blessed this year with so many books from friends and from publishers! How could I possibly want anything more? The thing about books, though, is that you can never run out and you can never have too many! Here are the top ten books I’m hoping Santa has in his bag for me. :)


Fragments by Dan Wells
The Princess in the Opal Mask by Jenny Lundquist
Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality by Elizabeth Eulberg
The Funny Thing Is by Ellen DeGeneres
Charlotte Street by Danny Wallace


Love Overdue by Pamela Morsi
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
A Tale of Two Centuries by Rachel Harris
The Lost Girls by Jennifer Baggett, Holly Corbett, and Amanda Pressner
Champion by Marie Lu

So, what’s on your list for Santa? I hope he brings you all the books!

      The name makes me super happy too! And I hear it’s darling.

      I still need to read Legend as well, I just feel the need to wait until I have the whole trilogy so I can binge. I hear there are some major cliffhangers, and I’m not sure I could have handled reading them so spread apart!

  1. First of all, I just have to mention how much I love your graphics this week! The books look too cute for words, designed to look like wrapped packages :)

    I know exactly what you mean, Jana: Christmas Eve has to be one of my favourite days of the year, and it always seems to fly by. There’s nothing quite like the exciting expectation of what’s to follow and I just love the sense of anticipation it brings. I would love to just pause this moment and live in it for the next couple of days. It’s always such a letdown when it’s all over :(

    As to the books you’ve chosen, I haven’t read any of these, although I do own copies of both Love Overdue and The Coldest Girl In Coldtown. Hopefully you’ll receive copies too and then we can read them together! ;)

    Merry Christmas, Jana *Hugs* I’m so thankful that I was able to meet you this year.

      Jen, you are so sweet! Thank you. :) I love the bows too, and it took me way too long. Haha.

      You are SO right about the post-Christmas letdown. I was hungover for about a month last year, coming off my high of Christmas happiness. I’m hoping I don’t suffer so much this year! Haha.

      I would love to do a couple buddy reads! I’ll have to let you know if I receive either of these books so that we can read them together! Maybe we could even post our discussions/thoughts to our blogs and make a mini feature or something!

      Merry Christmas to you too, Jen! I’m SO glad we met too! Maybe someday it’ll be in person!

  2. Hi there,

    I hope that all your Christmas wishes come true, particularly your bookish ones.

    With the size of my Wish List (high three figures and counting),I’m going to admit that it’s hard to pick a book or two. That said, thank you for adding another to my Wish List in “Love Overdue”. (Is it okay for a guy to want to read it?)

    Have a lovely Christmas.

  3. Adorable graphics! Love that!

    None of the books you listed are on my list. I must check them out! I have read Love Overdue though. I don’t want to ruin anything for you, but I had some issues with it. Overall though it was a cute read that I did enjoy for the most part. I hope you like it!

  4. Elizabeth Eulberg’s novel just has the best title! I’ve read the first book in ML’s series but I now need to read on. I think what’s put me off is that they’re so short! So I wanted to wait until they were all out and I could dig in all at once. :-) Merry Christmas Eve honey! xx

      I have not read Legend or Prodigy yet! I just want Champion, because I know I’ll want to binge on the entire trilogy! I hope you enjoy Champion. :) Merry Christmas!

  5. Aw darn, I was this close to putting The Coldest Girl in Coldtown on my list.If I had decided to do an honorable mention section, that one would have definitely made my list.

    You’re right about today being SUCH a magical day. It’s one of my all time favorite days, with tomorrow being my favorite of all time.I mean come on, food,family and fun? Life doesn’t get much better than that.

    Merry Christmas Jana!
