Send These, Santa!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new topic/top ten list and invite everyone to share their own answers. I'm so obsessed with lists - so it makes perfect sense that I'd love this feature!

Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me

1. Life After Life by Kate Atkinson - I wasn't really interested in this one until it won the Goodreads "Best Books of 2013" award for historical fiction. Then I noticed that several trusted bloggers gave it five stars, which made me wonder why this hadn't been on my radar before.

2. The Aftermath by Rhidian Brook - I've had this on my TBR from the moment I first spotted the cover before it was released. I love historical fiction, and this one has gotten great ratings. Plus, it's gorgeous!

3. Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall - I first introduced Cassie to this book, and she's had it on her wishlist ever since. I decided that I, too, needed to read this book. It's set in the South, so that's a win!

4. Lighthouse Bay by Kimberley Freeman - I absolutely adored Freeman's Wildflower Hill when I read it last year, so I'm hoping this one is also a hit for me. It seems like it's right up my alley!

5. The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes - I read this book for review, and I've wanted to add a copy to my shelves ever since. I've really fallen in love with Moyes' writing!

6. The Handmaid's Daughter by Barbara Mutch - I read the summary and knew this book had my name written all over it. Santa (in the form of Cassie) technically already gave me this one. THANKS, SANTA CASSIE! 

7. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard - This was on my wishlist after several bloggers started singing its praises, and my sweet best friend already gifted me a Kindle copy. Hope I enjoy these zombies!

8. Crash Into You by Katie McGarry - This is another one that I've already read, but I obviously must own a copy so that I can re-read whenever I'm in the mood for some serious swoon. Or, you know, some Isaiah.

9. Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys - I really enjoyed Sepetys' first book, Between Shades of Gray, and I know Cassie really loved this one. That was reason enough to add this one to my Christmas wishlist!

10. The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater - My same friend that bought me #7 on this list also gifted me this book at the same time. I haven't read it yet because I think I need to re-read the first book for a refresher.


  1. Hannah, I'm so glad that you shared your list with us all because I love getting Adult fiction recs from you! I've heard amazing things about Jojo Moyes' books, I'm certainly crossing my fingers for a book by her this Christmas. And I loved BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY too, so I really want OUT OF THE EASY as well! Fabulous list, I hope you get some of these books! Happy holidays :)

    1. Awww thanks Jen! That means a lot :) I'm so glad I help you find new adult fiction books. I really enjoyed Between Shades of Gray, too. Hope I love Out of the Easy just as much!

      Hope you had a wonderful holiday <3

  2. Lovely choices -- I am always intrigued by your adult fiction picks because you seem to find such good ones :) Merry Christmas Hannah!

    1. Thanks Christine! I love trying to find great adult fiction titles - the hunt for them is half the fun :)

  3. I so need to try Whistling Past the Graveyard.

    Merry Christmas! :)

    1. I'm so hopeful about that one! It's gotten great ratings and sounds so good!

  4. I really hope that you love Something Strange and Deadly! It was definitely one of my favorites from last year, and I'm already anticipating the third and final book that's out this year. I also can't wait for you to read The Dream Thieves - it's a WONDERFUL follow-up to The Raven Boys.
