Top Ten Tuesday - 10 Books I hope Santa brings

Tuesday, December 22, 2020

Season Greetings! I guess everybody is busy wrapping presents and starting preparations for all those delicious Christmas meals. What's on your Dear Santa list? 

For today's Top Ten Tuesday, Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl asks us (with Santa's permission of course) to show us your bookish wish list. Poor Santa, books can get very heavy you know and I guess the old chap's back isn't all that strong after 1750 years of carrying Christmas presents. Maybe we should just make sure he knows that we are quite happy with Amazon Kindle or any other e-book gift vouchers as well.

 I know my Mommy's list are quite longer than her Christmas groceries list, but we'll just showcase the Top Ten. 

1. The boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy (If this one can be in a paperback of hardcover, we'll be ever so grateful)
2. The Midnight Library by Matt Haig (Have I got a surprise for my Mommy. But shhhhh)
3. Ek wens, Ek wens deur Zirk van der Berg (It's and Afrikaans book and if she can get this one in printed form as well, pretty please)
What books are on your wish list? Are you open for present swop? Just asking for a friend.

I hope you get all the books your heart desire this Christmas and that you have lots of time to read them all.

Lots of Love,

    1. My Christmas book box just arrived and I have a very, very strong suspicion what is in there. Yea!!! Just two more sleeps and then I can open it. I also suspect that my husband is going to say I can choose a couple of e-books and then he'll pull out the credit cards. Addie LaRue will be one of them.

      Merry Christmas to you too Lindsey!

    1. Hi there Lydia! It sure is worth it. It is one of those books you will read over and over again. Sometimes you will start in the middle or just go to a certain page.

      So glad Santa brought it for me!

    1. Hi Poinsettia! I got a copy of Addie LaRue on Audible, but not for Christmas. We are back in Lockdown in SA and I just decided to get a bit of a reading list going here.

      I did get some other great ones though!

  11. The Boy, the Mole, etc. caught my eye in the bookstore quite a while ago but I'd forgotten about it.

    I don't think I've read any books by V. E. Schwab. She seems like an author I would enjoy so I don't know why I haven't.

    I hope Santa brings you some (or all) all of these. Merry Christmas!

  12. Adding The Night Portrait to my TBR! It sounds fantastic. The Book of Lost Names is on my TBR though it didn't make this list this time. It sounds so good.

    1. Hi Christine! Thanks so much. In comparison to some of the great bloggers out there, I suspect we are rather boring. But if you can find something you enjoy on here, we are very happy!

We love hearing from you and if you talk to me, I'll purr back as soon as possible. Sometimes I take a cat nap and it might take a couple of hours or days, but never fear - the cat always comes back.
