Top 10 Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing

A weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish

I wrote a discussion post before about generally not liking others to buy me books. However, there are exceptions to every rule. >.> Here are a couple of books I'm either reasonably certain I'll enjoy, or excited enough about to ignore my usual qualms. ;)




That's it for this round of 10! Thanks for stopping by and check back in tomorrow for this week's Updates! In which I caved...and bought more books. :)

  1. The hole where Ace of Skulls should be sitting on my shelf is bugging me, I have the other three all nice in a row (despite the damn cover style change as it switched publishers). Once Dreamer's Pool is in paperback I am buying a physical copy.

    1. I know exactly how you feel. I have the first three (with different sizes but same style covers), but there is a hole. I think Dreamer's Pool will be one of those titles I try to snag a used hardback of. :)

  2. I've seen Stray floating around the blogsphere for quite some time now; I have to admit though, the book cover is a bit off :P

    Hope you get at least one from your wishlist!

    1. I read at least one review of Stray that made me willing to give it a try (plus I'm a sucker for fairy tale retellings). The cover isn't my favorite, but it isn't screaming, "Run away! Save yourself!" ;)

  3. Great list! I have Diana Wynne Jones' The Dark Lord of Derkholm on my shelf, waiting to be read. I really loved Howl's Moving Castle and the other two books in the series, and a little more DWJ on the to-read pile is always fun :) Hope you find some of these books make their way under your Christmas tree ;)

    1. True! More Diana Wynne Jones is always fun, and I loved Howl's Moving Castle. :)

  4. Dreamer's Pool made it to my list too! And, Nice Dragons Finish Last sounds really fun to me.

    1. I just found out about Nice Dragons Finish Last the other day from Tabitha at Not Yet Read, but it sounded like a great mix of silly and serious. I hope you love Dreamer's Pool, Anne!

  5. I don't always love people buying me books either... in fact, I dislike it so much no one really does buy me any books. LOLOL! I have so many books to read I don't need any new ones.. unless they are great and epic!

    1. Haha, we'll see. And if not, I can probably track down cheap used copies later. :)

  7. I seriously LOVED Dissonance, Dreamer's Pool, and Stray! The latter two were AMAZING fantasy novels, and Dissonance was a kickbutt science fiction ish novel! I loved it so much! All three of these! The other ones, I'm not so sure about (not familiar with them).

    Happy holidays!
