Top 10 Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree This Year | Top Ten Tuesday






My wish list on Amazon has now reached a ridiculous size. At this point, I have no hope of ever buying everything on there.
Here are the top ten books I hope to finally cross off my list and find under my christmas tree. Well, a girl can dream.







 10. THE CIRCLE - Matts Strandberg & Sara Bergmark Elfgren

My friend recommended this to me. Witches and lesbians. I mean, come on, I need to read this ASAP.




9. ALIENATED - Melissa Landers
I have no idea how many posts I have stating this as the next purchase (this time for sure!!!). It's about an alien exchange student coming to live with a human. I need this book.

8. REBOOT - Amy Tintera
People are getting revived, but they're NOT zombies. I need this,



7. BLACK WIDOW: FOREVER RED: Margaret Stohl
I'm honestly so, so, so curious. I love the avengers and honestly, no matter which avenger this was about, I'd be excited regardless.

6. HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE - J.K. Rowling
The illustrated one. No explanation needed.




 5. EVERYTHING LEADS TO YOU - Nina La Cour
Contemporary with lesbians. Yup. Another candidate that has been on my wish list for aaaaaaaaages.

4. ANOTHER DAY - David Levithan
The sequel to my favorite book. It's beyond me why I don't own this yet.



3. ILLUMINAE - Amy Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Everyone got an ARC of this book at BEA and at this point I am so jealous, it's gettign painful. I need this.

2. INTERSTELLAR - Grey Keyes
The novelization of my favorite movie. Of course I need this.



1. MAGNUS CHASE AND THE GODS OF ASGARD - Rick Riordan

I might be the last person to discover the brilliance of Rick Riordan (I haven't even finished the PJO series, shame on me!!), but when I found out about this series I almost fainted. I love love love love love Norse mythology and this book series is a dream come true.




What's the book you hope to find under your Christmas tree?


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme originating from The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday they choose topics that we are supposed to create a list about, considering our personal reading preferences.

Waiting on Wednesday: Illuminae - Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff


Release Date: October 20th 2015
Pages: 608
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Genre: YA / Sci-Fi / Dystopia


All books by Amie Kaufman have such gorgeous covers that I can't help but immediately fall in love. I'll hopefully have read "These Broken Stars" before I get my hands on this one.

Synopsis:
"This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again."


What are You Waiting On?
