Top Five Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing Me

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish.


I wasn’t planning on posting today (or for the rest of the week, for that matter) but on Monday night, I was in need of a distraction.  So, it’s kind go a last minute post today.  Anyway, since I didn’t ask for any of these books for Christmas, I don’t think I’ll find them under the Christmas tree.  But if they were, that would be cool.

In no particular order . . .


1. & 2.  I Hunt Killers & Game by Barry Lyga
I’ve already read these, but I loved them so much I wouldn’t mind my own copies.

3. & 4.  Dare You To & Crash Into You by Katie McGarry
I’m a HUGE Katie McGarry fan, and I loved DYT.  I still need to read CIY, but I’ve heard it’s amazing.

5.  Doll Bones by Holly Black
Okay, so I’ve read this one before, too.  Apparently I want books that I’ve already read and loved.  But this book is sooo good.

Soooo, that’s it really.  I love books and reading, but if there is one I need to own, I usually either get it from the library, or buy it myself.  Since I’m all grown-up with a job, and not a lot of responsibilities (no kids, etc) my money is really my own.  But I do get most of my books from the library.  Which is why I end up wanting to own books I’ve already read and loved.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!

  1. Crash Into You is my favorite of the series. I needed Isaiah to get is happy ending and I’m so glad. You’re going to love it. I love Katie McGarry’s writing.

    Crash Into You is brilliant. I hope you enjoy it when you do get your hands on a copy 🙂

  4. I get most of my books from the library too. I don’t like owning books that I’m not in love with, so unless I’ve already read it (or it’s by John Green or something), I get nervous to buy books. I wouldnt mind owning The Jasper Dent series! Loved those books!!! Doll Bones looks good too. It’s one of the few MG books on my radar 🙂

    Merry Christmas! Crash Into You is on my TBR pile right now. I adored KM’s first book, but was less fond of her second, so I’m hoping a return to the city will bring this series right back where I want it to be! I actually just finished an NA that dealt with racing though, so I might put this one off a little while. I hope you like whatever is under your tree. xx

    Great list! I love Katie McGarry’s books as well and I hope I can read her latest in 2014. I hope you have a great holiday!

  7. I LOVE the cover of Doll Bones, so want to read this!

  8. I still need to read all of these, but I really want to try Doll Bones. I hope you have a great holiday!

  9. I loved pushing the limits I totally need to get the other two books in hardcopy. I have them on my kindle from netgalley.

    I always feel like the books I want to own are ones I’ve already read. I’m pretty picky about not wanting to buy books I don’t know if I’ll enjoy/love, so I usually do a test run. 🙂

    Doll Bones looks really great and I’m pretty sure I’d make an exception for it! Merry Christmas friend!

  11. The only one of these that I’ve read is Dare You To but I REALLY loved it and have the next one on my kindle – I just haven’t carved out time for it yet. I’ve heard great things about all of these though and I LOVE the cover for the Holly Black book!

    I want to read Doll Bones too!

    Here’s my TTT.
