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

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week bloggers post a top ten list related to a specific theme. This week's theme is Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Leaving Me.These are all books that are available for purchase and that I can't get at the library immediately. I feel I have been posting my 2014 most wanted list a lot, so I wanted to change things up a bit; however, if Santa wants to leave me ARCs, I will totally take them. All links lead to GoodReads.

Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken

1. Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken

I read The Darkest Minds a few weeks ago, and I loved it! I need to know what happens next. I am waiting to get this book from the library.


Dangerous Women by GRR Martin & others

2. Dangerous Women by GRR Martin & others

This is a collection of short stories by Martin and other writers that are about women in their particular universes (e.g., SOIAF, Dresden Files, Outlander).

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman

3. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman

I keep hearing lovely things about this book, so I am excited to read it for myself.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

4. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I have heard mixed things about this book, with slightly more people enjoying it. I would be curious to try it out.

Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield

5. Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield

I loved The Thirteenth Tale. I have heard that this book is not as strong and those who enjoyed The Thirteenth Tale did not like this book very much; however, I really want to see what it is like anyhow.

Vicious by Victoria Schwab

6. Vicious by Victoria Schwab

This sounds like a fun book, and I keep hearing good things about it.

The Archived by Victoria Schwab

7. The Archived by Victoria Schwab

Again, I keep hearing good things about this book, so I am excited to give it a go.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

8. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

This is another book, which had mixed reviews, but the premise sounds promising, so I want to give it a whirl.

Under the Dome by Stephen King

9. Under the Dome by Stephen King

I didn't watch the television show, but the premise of the story sounds really neat, so I would like to read it.

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

10. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

I know nothing about this series, but I like the covers. Also, I keep hearing good things about the series.

Ooh I hope Santa gets you some or all of these books :-) The Raven Boys was really good so I hope you get it first :-) And I so want to read Dangerous Women too but it'll be a while before I get to it.

I didn't realize there was a Dresden story in the book Dangerous Women! Just put that on hold at the library.

I really need to get The Darkest Minds, and I loved both Vicious (which was awesome) & The Archived (so great - I love Victoria's books). I hope you'll get & enjoy all of these :)

Happy Holidays!

I am reading A Dance with Dragons right now, so I don't want to read Dangerous Women until I am caught up with ASOIAF. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed The Raven Boys. I can't wait to read it. :)

I am glad to hear that you liked King's book. I haven't heard too much about it, but I liked the idea of it.

Thank you! I am always glad to hear when I want books that people have enjoyed. :)

Yes! You need to read The Darkest Minds! It is so good. Seriously, I was starting to think I was growing out of YA books, but I couldn't put The Darkest Minds down.

:) I am keeping an eye on e-book prices on Amazon on Christmas. I am hoping that the price will drop and I can snatch them up for cheap.

I noticed that the book was huge! I have been reading the Game of Throne books this year, so the page length doesn't intimidate me as much as it used to.

I am keeping my fingers crossed for it! :)

Oh there are several really nice books on your list, and I hope Santa brought them all to you! I love These Broken Stars, and I actually already own The Raven Boys, too.

I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas, Pamela.

I already got some of these books before Christmas like These Broken Stars and Cassie's The Infernal Devices. At the moment, I am hoping for Santa to give me the Mara Dryer series and The Raven boys. I've heard so many things about the two series.

Great list, Pamela. I hope Santa is generous enough to give you all of these.

Have a blissful Christmas!

I hope you found some of these under your tree! I've heard good things about several of them. I'm debating reading The Raven Boys; my daughter enjoyed it but wasn't sure if I would. And I definitely want to read These Broken Stars.

I have heard some mixed things about The Raven Boys, but people who enjoyed it, really enjoyed it.
