Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree This Year

It’s the Tuesday before Christmas and you know what that means? It’s the day when book bloggers across the internet share the wishlists we’ve mailed up to the North Pole! I’ve worked extra hard to make the Nice List this year and the wait is over! Drum roll please…..

Dear Santa,

1. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman

Pictures of this beauty have been flooding my instagram/twitter feeds and I simply need it in my life! The way it was put together with pages typed out to look like transcripts and emails, etc is brilliant!

2. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

This was one of the best books I read in 2015 and it hurts my heart a little that I don’t own a physical copy!

3. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

I’ve heard such great things about this book and have started to hear the audiobook twice, but my ADD hasn’t allowed me to fully enjoy it. I’m convinced that if I sat down with this book in hand, I would fully emerge myself and tune out the world.

4. Captive by Aimee Carter

I already own Pawn and Queen (books 1 and 3) and plan to marathon the series as soon as I own Captive!

5. Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier

The covers in this series are truly stunning! Ruby Red and Emerald Green make beautiful eye-candy on my bookshelf, but are missing their companion!

6. Starbound Series by Aimee Kaufman

Now that the final book in the series has been released, Santa can get me the set!! These covers are beautiful and I’ve heard great things about the series. Kudos to author Aimee Kaufman for making my list TWICE!

7. The Darkest Minds Series by Alexandra Bracken

This series has been on my TBR since January of 2014. Maybe, if they are sitting on my physical TBR shelf I will finally get to them! ;)

8. Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas

I have heard endless reviewers raving about how amazing this series is and I will continue to stand strong and put it off til 2017 when the final book is released. However, I can still have these beauties patiently waiting on my shelf! Can’t I?

9. The Raven Cycle Series by Maggie Stiefvater

This is another series I have put off for long enough! The final book will be released this coming April and I can’t wait to meet my next book boyfriend! I’ve heard there are several to choose from. ;) Also, kudos to Maggie Stiefvater for making my list twice!

10. Up in Flames by Abbi Glines

Last, but certainly not least, I’m really keeping my fingers crossed that Santa and his elves can come through for me! I know Up in Flames won’t even be released until June, yes JUNE, of 2016, but Santa is magical and I’m sure he can pay Abbi a visit and explain the circumstances. So many people went crazy when Glines put out that the final book of her Rosemary Beach series would follow Nan, but I, for one, am too excited to wait another 6 months!!!

Let me know what books made your Christmas wishlist in the comments below! :D

    I definitely think you need copies of The Scorpio Races (This reminds me that I’m overdue for a reread!), The Darkest Minds series (which I binge read this year and LOVED) and Throne of Glass series (which I’m obsessed with). Great list! Hope Santa brings you these books as presents ;)

    Throne of Glass is amazing! Your patience with it is really smart – currently suffering, waiting for Sarah J Maas to release more books in the series! Great list – I’d forgotten that so many of these books, like Ready Player One, were on my TBR list! Hope_you’ll stop by my TTT list!

      I’m too weak and can’t handle the torture of waiting in between books! Lol Luckily, I’ve never been spoiled by waiting. *keeps fingers crossed* You should totally jump on reading Ready Player One! It’s exciting, fast paced, and brings back tons of great old school memories. :)

    Throne of Glass was such a brilliant read, I mean wow!

    I’d love to read Ready Player One, I read Armada this year and it was great but I’m told this one is even better :-)

    I hope you get some of these under your tree! :) Here’s my TTT if you would like to check it out :-)

    Happy holidays! <3

    Oh yes, you should be happy to get a copy from The Raven Boys, I really love those books :) I have yet to read my copy from The scorpio races. Everyone always raves about it, so I can’t wait to pick it up next year. I hope Santa gives you Throne of glass, those books are amazing.

    Illuminae! I hope you enjoy it! It’s such a beautiful book to own. I need to get all of the series you’ve mentioned (except Throne of Glass which I binge bought). I hope your Christmas is wonderful and filled with the books you hope for.

    Let me just encourage you to pick up THRONE OF GLASS immediately!! I kept hearing things about it, but I always worried it wouldn’t live up to the hype. I was instantly hooked and am now in the middle of book 3. I literally only started reading this series on December 31st.

    It’s addicted. It’s magical. The romantic interests are … unusually, amazingly awkward.
