Hey Santa!

Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind 

Santa Bringing Me

Oh, gosh, where do I begin?!  Since I have been on a book-buying ban this past year, the list is incredibly long, but I will try to limit myself to only ten in number (but warning you, there will be some gift box sets!) 

Hunger Games Triology – I might be the last person on the planet that has not read these books.

The Mortal Instruments Gift Set – I know, I know… where have I been? My daughter told me that they are making a movie out of the first one, so why not get all of them?!

The Missing Manuscript of Jane Austen by Syrie James – I loved her two other books that were along these lines and cannot wait to get my hands on it!

Words I Wish I Wrote by Robert Fulghum – I have loved this author for years, and it would be interesting to see what he has found inspirational!

Austensibly Ordinary by Alyssa Goodnight – it isn’t even out yet, but it will be soon, and I would love to have a copy!

The Three Colonels by Jack Caldwell – I would love to read a Jane Austenesque book written by a man!

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer – another one not yet out, but want it nonetheless! I fell in LOVE with Cinder, and cannot wait to continue the journey.

A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont – the title captured me and it sounds like a fabulous book.

Emily and Einstein by Linda Francis Lee – I loved this book, and I want my own copy!

Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan – a new book and sounds fascinating – “A gleeful and exhilarating tale of global conspiracy, complex code-breaking, high-tech data visualization, young love, rollicking adventure, and the secret to eternal life—mostly set in a hole-in-the-wall San Francisco bookstore” – what isn’t there to love about that!?!

What books do you want Santa to bring? 
Is it wrong of me to publish this list and send a copy to all of my relatives?!?!



  1. I hope you get the Hunger Games series! It's so awesome!!

    The first three books of the Mortal Instruments series are pretty good too. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Great list! --I haven't read The Mortal Instruments series either!! --Hope Santa is good to you. --Have a Merry Christmas!

    My List.

  3. Ooohh, I'd love to have a 24 hour bookstore. I think I'd live there, haha.

    I have the Hunger Games trilogy but I haven't started reading it yet =( If you like Hunger Games, you should check on Battle Royale which is where Hunger Games gets its inspiration (even if the author denies it, lol).


  4. I would love for Santa to use a little Christmas magic and leave me Scarlet early. Great list. Thanks for stopping by my TTT.

  5. I think it's perfectly acceptable to ask for boxed sets. :-D

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  6. Um yeah, how could you NOT want something Jane Austen?!

    I am surprised by THG, but I definitely recommend them! I actually liked the movie better though :P

  7. A Breath of Eyre looks so good! And SCARLET! Gah! I think everyone wants a copy, yah?

    The Hunger Games....Oh man...I love them so much my heart breaks even just thinking about them. haha ;)

    Fun list!!

  8. What a great list! You are not the last person to read The Hunger Games and The Mortal Instruments. I haven't read them either - I received both boxed sets last Christmas. I just don't have enough time!

    I am interested in reading The Missing Manuscript of Jane Austen. I hadn't heard of Austensibly Ordinary before. I can't wait to read Scarlet too.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  9. I'm hoping you get the Hunger Games - you need to read it! And I think we both need to read the Mortal Instruments series, I keep hearing about it.


Thanks for taking the time to post a comment. If you leave a link to yours, I would love to visit... but it may take a few days before I comment or explore!

Sorry about the word verification - I hate them, too - but I hate vulgar spam more!

Have a Fabuloso Day!
