Dear Santa, 

A year ago today, I created my Christmas wishlist, and coincidentally, this Top Ten, which is “Top Ten books I wouldn’t mind Santa leaving under my my tree this year,” falls on that same day! I’m taking it as a sign of good things are coming my way!

I thought long and hard about the books I hope will be under my tree this year. Making a wishlist is always the hardest—I have to narrow down to things I really really realllllly want—and exciting—so much wonderfulness—thing to do. I’ve tried to narrow the list to ten, but somehow I ended up with twelve. (I cheated a bit too.) :P

Let’s see what books I’m hoping Santa will leave me!

1. Echo by Pam Muñoz Ryan | 2. A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara | 3. Bone Gap by Laura Ruby |
4. Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman | 5. Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie (Illustrated by Minalima) |
6. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling (Ilustrated) |
7. Hawkeye series by Matt Fraction & David Aja | 8. Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke* |
9. A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab* | 10. Some Kind of Happiness by Claire Legrand* |
11. Hark! A Vagrant & Step Aside, Pops by Kate Beaton |
12. I Kill Giants by Joe Kelly & J.M. Ken Niimura

(Note: The ones with an asterisk* next to it are ones I desperately want in ARC form. DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I AM IN NEED OF THEM? If not all three, I am really hoping for Some Kind of Happiness. I need to own all of Claire Legrand’s books, even in ARC form. It’s an absolutely must for me. Also, if you happen to have a ARC of The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls or The Year of Shadows, I wanna talk to you. ;))))) *cross my fingers*)

What about you? What’s on your wishlist? Are there any books here that are on your wishlist too?

    You definitely need that version of Harry Potter in your life, because it’s BEAUTIFUL! I really enjoy looking at it ;)

  2. Nice list! I can’t believe I forgot about the illustrated version of HP and the Sorcerer’s Stone! From the previews I’ve seen, it looks absolutely stunning :D
    Hope you’ll have a look at my TTT post too!

    Awesome choices! I’ve seen so many people put the HP illustrated book on their list. I want that one as well. I flipped through it at the bookstore the other day and it was so awesome. Here’s my TTT http://angelerin.blogspot.com/2015/12/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-books-i-would.html?m=0

  4. I’m in love with the cover for Some Kind of Happiness. That’s one I would read just for cover design alone, though it seems you’re a fan of the author, so that’s a double recommendation. That Peter Pan is also lovely. Here’s hoping Santa comes through for you!

  5. That is a lovely edition of Peter Pan :D I really hope HP illustrated finds it way under your tree, because it is beautiful. I wouldn’t mind finding A gathering of shadows!

  6. I definitely need that HP Illustrated Edition. And I love the different covers on the Peter Pan books. I did a reread of it maybe 2 years ago and it was really interesting to read as an adult. Great list :)

  7. OH MY GOSH yes I need Bone Gap in my life. And there are approximately 1,000,000 2016 books that I desperately need ARCs of, but there aren’t too many US ARCs in Australia *cries*

    I haven’t seen a few of these on lists, but they look really interesting! Have you seen the Puffin Chalk edition of Peter Pan? It’s beautiful. Hope you have a lovely Christmas!
