Meme: Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings

The meme Top Ten Tuesday topic of the week (via the Broke and Bookish blog) is:

Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings


  1. In Memory of Todd Woods by Tom Taylor: I read the sample of this coming-of-age self-published book and got hooked immediately! Added it to the blog’s Kindle wishlist immediately.
  2. The Mystery of the Missing Everything by Ben H. Winters: I’m a big fan of The Secret Life of Ms. Finkleman (the first book) where seventh-grader Bethesda Fielding finds out her teacher may be a rock star, so am really looking forward to the second book!
  3. Almost Like Being in Love by Steve Kluger: The reviews about this gay romantic comedy about ‘the one that got away‘ are so good, I want to read it too!
  4. Brother/Sister by Sean Olin: Given the good reviews despite the difficult subjects it covers, hopefully, this one lands on my Kindle!
  5. Handpicked by Siew Siang Tay: This award-winning novel about a mail-order bride sounds just right for me (except for the price!)
  6. Before I Go To Sleep: A Novel by S. J. Watson: I’ve wanted to read this thriller about a girl who loses her memories every night ever since it got spotlighted as Amazon’s Best Book of the Month for June 2011.
  7. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky: Almost everyone it seems has read this coming-of-age novel… I feel so left out!
  8. The King’s Speech: How One Man Saved the British Monarchy by Mark Logue and Peter Conradi: I’ve seen the movie and loved it, now need to compare it to the book!
  9. Micro: A Novel by Michael Crichton and Richard Preston: I’m vaccilating between wanting to read this or not, since Crichton didn’t really write this, right, (even if it’s based on his notes)… but if it’s a gift, how can I say no?
  10. Girl in the Arena by Lise Haines: Sounds like it’s inspired by the success of the Hunger Games, but I do find the idea of girl gladiators oddly appealing 🙂

    You seem to have some very original things listed there. I always love finding out about books I didn’t know about before. I’m going to have to mark the page so that I can take the time to look some of these up. I hope that you receive some wonderful new books. Have a great day! Merry Christmas!
