Copy of Copy of top ten tuesday
Only four more sleeps until Christmas! I’m still hoping for a Christmas miracle snowfall, but failing that, I’ll settle for some lovely rectangular packages strewn under the tree with my name on them. Here are a few of the titles I wouldn’t mind finding beneath the wrapping paper (though, of course, there are many more!):

Illuminae - Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff       Trigger Warning - Neil Gaiman       The Mountain Story - Lori Lansens

There are so many more books I want – I’m sure I couldn’t list them all if I tried – but these ones came to mind first.

Now over to you guys – are any of these on your Christmas wish list? Have you read any of them? Share in the comments!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly link-up feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week TTT has a different topic, and everyone who links up has to create a link of ten items that fit that topic. To see past and upcoming topics, go here.

    Be careful…I wished for a white Christmas and now the snow won’t stop!!!!

    I would love to read Trigger Warning, Ii just love Gaiman and the book sounds so so good.

    Merry merry Christmas!!!!! I hope you get some wonderful books this year!!!!

    I hope you love Illuminae! I need The Grownup and Trigger Warning ASAP. My love for those two authors is all consuming. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

    I think we will be wearing shorts on Christmas which is unheard of in my neck of the woods. Wish everyone could have snow for one magical day. This list looks great and I really want to read The Grownup. Happy Holidays!

    P.S. No snow for Christmas here either — it’s in the 50s and sunny today, which is unheard of in December in Ohio! So, like you, I made it snow on my blog instead. 😉

    I was so excited to read “The Watchmaker of Filigree Street” and then somehow I never got around to it! After looking at all the best-of-the-year lists, “Negroland” is on my to-read list (sounds like a different perspective and a good follow-up for “Between the World and Me,” which I read recently) and I keep seeing “Illuminae” EVERYWHERE so I may have to look into it, even though it’s YA. “After You” was pretty good — definitely not the amazingness that was”Me Before You,” but anyone who liked that book should read the sequel to find out how Louisa is faring (not well!).

    Excellent list! I haven’t heard of Relax, I’m a Ninja but clearly based on the title I’m off to look into it. Trigger Warning is fantastic. I have Gaiman and After You on my list too!
