Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic: Books We Demand From Santa

When I was a kid, I had a tough time staying in bed Christmas morning. I wanted to open my presents from Santa, and I wanted them NOWWWW. This year is no different. I want these books from Santa, and I want them NOWWWW.

Only I’m not that cute. These are the books we want from Santa. Impatiently.

Kara’s List:

The Girl with Seven Names: A North Korean Defector’s Story by Hyeonso Lee
Queen (The Blackcoat Rebellion #3) by Aimee Carter
Murder by Candlelight: The Gruesome Slayings Behind Our Romance with the Macabre by Michael Knox Beran
Drowning is Inevitable by Shalanda Stanley
Ghetto at the Center of the World: Chungking Mansions, Hong Kong by Gordon Mathews

What do you get for the girl that has so many books that she probably doesn’t even know what she wants anymore? Possibly the oddest collection of book picks you could come across. Two Asian memoirs, the conclusion of an underrated young adult trilogy, a nonfiction book about murder, and what sounds like a soul-crushing young adult contemporary? Sure, why not?

Lyn’s List:

The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson
The Fold by Peter Clines
Thor Volume 1: Goddess of Thunder

I have an odd assortment here, but it is a mix of books that people have loved and books that I have wanted since they have released.  I’m ready to start a Cat Winters collection, and women’s suffrage is a theme that I want to see populate more YA novels. I really want the next Pearson novel before the next book comes out, since I was a fan of the first novel. The Fold was a Kara book, and I have really wanted a trippy sci-fi novel for a bit now, and I have a keen interest in a gay-themed HP inspired book. Finally, Goddess of Thunder is a book I keep wanting to get my hands on, but I just seem to never get it in my basket.

What books do you want the fat bastard to bring you this year? Just kidding: We love Santa. Please bring us books, Santa. 🙁
