Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me

Of course, there are several books that I wouldn't mind Santa bringing me; some that I've read, some that I haven't, and some that are needed to finish a collection on my bookshelves. So here are just a few of the books that I'd like jolly old Saint Nicholas to bring me.

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson: I read this book and love, love, loved it, and I just must have it on my shelves.

Insurgent by Veronica Roth: I recently read Divergent (it's about time, right?) and really liked it. Unfortunately, my library has over seventy holds on Insurgent, and since I own the first, it makes sense to own the second one, right?

The Selection by Kiera Cass: Over time, I've decided I like this book more than I thought I originally did. And I'd really like to have it on my shelves. Plus, the cover is so pretty. 

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi: The new cover is stunning, and this book was really good. It belongs on my shelf.

Of Poseidon by Anna Banks: Another book I read this year and really liked, so of course I want to own it.

Ingenue and Diva by Jillian Larkin: I already have Vixen, the first book, and I need the other two, especially since this series is so good.

The Scorpio Races and The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater: I haven't read either of these, but I've heard they're really, really good. Plus, I own all her other books. It's only proper that I own them all.

The Shade Trilogy by Jeri Smith-Ready: I'm horrible and still haven't read the last two books. Owning them will help me get them read.

Perfect Chemistry and Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles: Because I love these books (if you haven't read them, get on it!) and I don't own these two!

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry: I have an ARC of this that I still haven't finished, but I know I'm going to really like it and that I need a finished copy.

Santa Baby, slip a stack of books under the tree, for me...

What do you want Santa to bring you? Tell me in the comments!

  10. I love the Divergent series! I checked the first out from the library, and couldn't wait once I was finished so purchased Insurgent on Amazon. I need to get Divergent though, cuz it makes sense! The Selection is on my list, though I have yet to read it.

  11. WOAH I LOVE YOUR THEME! It is so cute! :D

    Divergent series was amazing! There's actually a collector's edition of Insurgent, just so you know.

    I've seen mixed reviews for Of Poseidon, but maybe you'll enjoy it!

    Hehe, I have to read Perfect Chemistry... it sounds like a really good series! And also Pushing the Limits!

  12. Oh yea, one more thing. For Tiger Lily, I've also seen mixed reviews. I borrowed it from the library but never got around to actually reading it.
