This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings. To be frank, I don’t want books for Christmas. In the immortal lyrics of Mariah Carey: I don’t want a lot for Christmas There is just one thing I need, and that thing is an iMac, and I have been asking all family, boyfriend, boyfriend’s family who oddly gets me gifts to just get me Amazon giftcards because that is where the cheapest iMac is. And I figure I won’t get the 1,124.99 plus tax that Amazon is charging, so I’ll make up the difference.
ANYWAYS, the supposed books I would not be adverse to:
1. Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
Why? Bro, all my favorites gave Catching Jordan rave reviews. And my favorites are true blue, so I have a feeling I would enjoy this!
2. The Walking Dead Book 1 by Robert Kirkman
Why? Because I LOVE graphic novels and like zombies, plus The Walking Dead is a tv show, PLUS it looks like a book my boyfriend would enjoy reading as well.
3. The Door In The Hedge by Robin McKinley
Why? I am slowly but surely collecting all of Robin McKinley’s books. I imagine this one will be just as wonderful as the rest.
4. And Only To Deceive by Tasha Alexander
Why? Allison at the Allure Of Books raves about this series and I trust her recommendations, as she is usually spot on for me.
5. The Broken Kingdoms by NK Jemisin
Why? I loved the first book in the series The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms and so would like to continue on.
6. Ninth Ward by Jewell Parker Rhodes
Why? Gorgeous cover. Enough said.
7. Fire Study by Maria V. Snyder
Why? I am a completionist. I have the first two Study books and really want to read Fire Study and finally finish the series, despite Fire Study not being universally loved.
8. She-Wolves: The Women Who Ruled England Before Elizabeth by Helen Castor
Why? Dude. I love history forever and ever. Especially women’s history and nothing screams BAD ASS like a real life powerful woman.
9. Sailor Moon 1 by Naoko Takeuchi
Why? DUR. I used to LOVE Sailor Moon, like get up at 6 am to watch it on TV, borrow the mangas from the libary, dress up as a sailor scout to promote the library’s manga section, able to recite the speech ‘In the name of the moon I will punish you!” Yeah what! It pretty much made my week to see that this is back in print
10. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
Why? Yo, I really enjoyed Clockwork Angel and so this is a series I could totally roll with. Plus I don’t want to be left out because all my friends are reading it and not me.
