Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings – 2017 Edition

Posted December 19, 2017 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 38 Comments


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

I can’t believe Christmas is next Monday! This holiday season always flies a little too quickly for me, but I’m also excited because I know Santa is going to bring me all the bright, shiny books! Consider this my letter to Santa. I hope to find all of these in my stocking this year. :)

1. Every Breath You Take by Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke
I’ve always been an MHC fan, and I really like this Under Suspicion series she wrote with Alafair.

2. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
I LOVE this book, and I really want a physical copy for my bookshelf.

3. I Temporarily Do by Ellie Cahill
I love fauxmances, and this one sounds so fun!

4. Mary Poppins 80th Anniversary Collection by P.L. Travers
I’ve always wanted to read the Mary Poppins books, and this collection is so pretty!

5. The Ends of the World by Maggie Hall
I haven’t read book #2 yet, but I loved The Conspiracy of Us and am excited to see how this series ends!

6. Little Monsters by Kara Thomas
I asked Twitter for a bunch of mystery recommendations a few months ago, and this one is loved by so many that I really want to read it!

7. Dance of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson (pre-order)

8. A Dance of Silver and Shadow by Melanie Cellier
It’s a retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses! The entire series sounds great. The second book is a Beauty and the Beast retelling that I really want as well.

9. About That Kiss by Jill Shalvis
The Heartbreaker Bay series is tons of fun!

10. In Safe Hands by Katie Ruggle
Katie Ruggle is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors, and I love this Search and Rescue series!

What books do you hope Santa brings you this year?

      Thanks! I’m excited to get my hands on the Mary Poppins books because I love the Disney movie and the Broadway show so much. I will admit, though, that the pretty edition made me bump them up my TBR. Hehe.

    • Jana

      Thank you!

      Yes, I’m only familiar with the Disney and Broadway editions so I’m excited to read the original books. :)

  1. I see SO MANY beautiful things on this list! I would honestly die to get any of these for Christmas! The Hating Game was SOO good, and I cannot wait to rea Little Monsters. That one’s apparently the YA thriller we have been waiting for!!! <3

      Oh my goodness, YES to The Hating Game! I love it so much!

      And yay Little Monsters! I love YA thrillers, but it takes some effort to find the really good ones. I can’t wait for this one!

      Jill Shalvis is really great. I’ve only ever read her Christmas novels and novellas, but I’m excited to venture outside of her holiday books! I feel like I own a million of her contemporary romances and just haven’t had time to read them yet!

      I completely forgot that I own a copy of The Darkest Corners! I need to read that ASAP! I’m really in the mood for a good thriller. :)

    My husband asked me about my wishlist a couple of weeks ago: “Is your list up to date because it’s just a bunch of books.” I told him yes–he’s a non-reader though I’ve tried to convert him and failed. I laugh at this now and hope I open books this year. I have Dear Martin, THUG, and preorders of Legendary and Daughter of A Siren Queen to name a few on my long list.
