Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me



Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me. This is a fairly easy topic although it means I will have to search all my wishlists and Goodreads shelves to see what I want the most. However, I am not asking for any books for Christmas this year. I have ENOUGH. But they are there for when the book-buying ban is over.

So anyway, I've searched all my lists and this is what I came up with!


1. Going Bovine by Libba Bray
2. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
3. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
4. On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
5. The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart
6. Reached by Ally Condie
8. Elemental by Antony John
9. Skylark by Meagan Spooner
10. The Friday Society by Adrienne Kress

There are SO many I want. This is just a few of many, but they are the ones I want the most because most of them are books that other bloggers have recommended to me either by word of mouth, or through their reviews. The only exceptions to these are Reached and Elemental. I've added those because they are books from authors I trust or series I am already invested in. The rest are all blogger recommendations and they are books I have been promising to read for a LONG time now. 

Have any of you read these? And if so, what did you think? Leave me a link to your TTT and I will come visit. Sorry for no book covers this week. That takes SO MUCH time and I was short on it. Until next week, happy reading!

  1. The Handmaid's Tale!! One of my FAVOURITE dystopians!! And I've heard awesome things about Libba Bray but have only read one of her books -- I must change that!

    I hope you get some of the books on your list! :)

  2. You don't want another copy of the geisha book that I'm totally blanking on the name of? WHO ARE YOU? You always need more!

    1, 4, 5. I have a copy but need to read it.
    2, 8, 10. WANT.
    3. Have read and LOVE and NEED to own.
    6. OMG, NO.
    7. I think I heard of this and it sounded good, but...not sure.
    9. I've actually read this one! It was very interesting, but not perfect by any means.

    1. Haha, no. One copy is enough. Really!

      I love the Matched series. You are cracking me up!

  3. You haven't read Jellicoe Road or The Boyfriend List yet? Those are 2 of my FAVORITES. (Though very very very very different from each other)

  6. So many awesome books on your list! Elemental and Skylark are ones that I want to read. I want to read Reached eventually, but I think I am just going to get it from the library. I was very bored with Crossed and am really just finishing the series because I read the first two and I feel like I have to read the last one.

    1. I liked Crossed but it was nowhere near as good as Matched was, so I get it. I am just invested in this series in a crazy way. :)

  7. Enough books? Is that even possible?!

    Oh I need to get On the Jellicoe Road, I loved Melina Marchetta's Saving Alibrandi when I was a teenager!

    1. For now? Yes. But only because I am trying to save for other things that I need. Then it will be back to the books. I just need to really watch my spending.

  8. Being a Melina Marchetta addict, I've read On the Jellicoe Road many a times. I also have 4 copies of that book in total (don't ask). I'd love to send you a copy if you want. :)

    1. Marchetta is brilliant. I just have not gotten to THIS book yet. I will remedy that soon. :)

  11. I wasn't a huge fan of Going Bovine, but The Boyfriend List and Jellicoe Road are INCREDIBLE. I also desperately need to pick up Elemental and The Friday Society! Amazing list, Kara - I hope you get these books this Xmas! :)

    1. I've read two Marchetta books and they were both fantastic. I really need this one!

  15. I really want to read The Handmaiden's Tale and On the Jellicoe Road. I'm up in the air about Reached because I heard it was a disappointing end to the series and still didn't answer question. Ugh.

    1. Wait. Kat has not made you read Jellicoe Road yet? What is this madness?!

      I actually heard the opposite about Reached so now I am totally confuzzled. I will still read it though. I need to!

      Delete
  16. Eeeek I hope you get Reached & I hope I get time to read Reached for Xmas haha! Elemental & The Friday Society would be welcomed too ;) I hope you get all of these under the tree this year! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier :)
