Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree

1. Tricky Twenty-Two by Janet Evanovich.  I love this series!  They make me laugh.  I've read the first 21, and am looking forward to #22.

2. The Twisted Deliverance of Anne Merchant by Joanna Wiebe.  I mentioned in my review of The Wicked Awakening of Anne Merchant how much I'm looking forward to this one!  It releases in Canada in Feb, but Santa could bring me an ARC.  :)

3. Surviving Henry: Adventures in Loving a Canine Catastrophe by Erin Taylor Young.  This one really is on my Christmas wishlist that my mom always requests!  It looks adorable.  It's about a boxer puppy.  I have a boxer puppy.

4. Something by Cory Doctorow.  I read Little Brother this year and loved it; I'm totally ready to try another one!  Santa can surprise me.

5. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling.  Ohmygoodness... this book is gorgeous!  And now that I've got Baby Harris on the way... what a great introduction to the Harry Potter series!  (And I hope that they end up doing all seven illustrated!)

6. What to Expect the First Year by Heidi Murkoff.  Speaking of Baby Harris being on the way... by next Christmas he'll be here!  I'll need to know what to expect that first year!

7. Letters From Father Christmas by J.R.R. Tolkien.  I checked this out of the library last year at Christmas and it was absolutely delightful!  I pored over it.  Tolkien wrote letters to his children every year under the guise of "Father Christmas," and they're illustrated!

8. The Map of the Sky and The Map of Chaos by Felix J. Palma.  I own the first in this trilogy, and I've read the second one too (from the library).  Excellent trilogy; definitely worth owning; and I haven't read the third one yet!

9. Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray.  I own the first one in this series, and I loved it!  Now I'll need to keep purchasing them as they're released, of course.  ;)

10. The Miss Peregrine's trilogy by Ransom Riggs.  I bet Santa could find me a nice boxed set.  I love the stories and the photos!

What about you?  What books do you hope Santa will bring you?


  1. I hope they illustrate all seven Harry Potter books as well. It will make an awesome collection when they are done.
    I found a box set of Miss Peregrine at Barnes and Noble that I just had to buy for myself. I haven't read Library of Souls yet but I hope to get to it soon.
    Thanks for sharing and I hope you have an amazing Christmas!

  2. I have Tricky Twenty Two but haven't read it yet! Maybe I should ask Santa for more time in the day to read?!

  3. Boxer puppies rock. I read an ARC of Surviving Henry and the author even posted a comment on my blog review. I often incorporate my boxers into my book blog so if you love them as much as I do, check it out! Booker T even posts guest reviews from time to time. Hope you get all your wishes!

  4. Ten THousand Skies Above You has such an awesome cover. Harry Potter Illustrated version is such a cool edition!!

  5. The Peregrine books would make for an excellent treat to find under the tree! (My TTT)

  6. Great list. I wouldn't mind having The Miss Peregrine's Trilogy in the least. I hope that you get some of these bookish goodies. Merry Christmas!
