Happy Tuesday! Another Tuesday means another Top 5/Top 10 Meme. Obviously, I’m doing a top ten here, but both Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm and The Broke and the Bookish have a Books for Christmas Wishlist this week. So I’ll be linking up to both memes!
Honestly, I’ve already gotten what I really want for Christmas. My BF came home!!!!!! After two months of traipsing through some gorgeous Caribbean islands, he was finally able to come home on Saturday, just in time for Christmas! So, that Mariah Carey song that everyone knows during the holidays? It was SO TRUE for me this year. So, that being said, I STILL WANT BOOKS FOR CHRISTMAS!!! I’m sorry. I’m greedy.
My Top Ten Books for Christmas
1. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I keep passing up the chance to get this book from Book of the Month because their selections are always stunning, but I know this is one that I need to get my hands on. Plus, the cover is gorgeous!
2. Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly
Historical fiction! I love everything historical, so this WWII era novel is clearly one I’ve been eyeing up all year. It focuses on three different women in three separate experiences during WWII. Sounds amazing!
3. The Widow by Fiona Barton
I managed to snap Fiona Barton’s The Child on Amazon for super cheap, but I still want to see what her previous book is all about. I’ve heard nothing but great things about it!
4. The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel
I’ve read that this book has some serious triggers in it, like child abuse and such, but this has never deterred me from reading a book. Uncomfortable topics don’t scare me away, they just exacerbate my emotions even more. I would love to see what this book is all about!
5. The Grip of It by Jac Jemc
This cover has me going crazy! This book looks so spooky, and I love the premise behind it. I’m a horror fan, and this book looks like it won’t disappoint me!
6. The Good Samaritan by John Marrs
I passed this book up for my Kindle First selection, and I sort of regret it. Therefore, I’d really like to get my hands on it for Christmas! The premise is really unique and the reviews have been so good!
7. The Alice Network by Kate Quinn
How can I pass up historical fiction? Especially when it’s a WWII era novel! This book has been on my radar for awhile, so I’d love to get the chance to read it!
8. The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Neil Gaiman is slowly becoming one of my go-to authors, but I want to start reading his previous releases. I loved American Gods and Norse Mythology, so this seems like the logical next step in my Neil Gaiman experience!
9. Killman Creek by Rachel Caine
I bought Stillhouse Lake on Amazon for cheap, and it’s the first in this series. Obviously, I already know I want to continue the series even without starting the first one because the reviews have been outstanding!
10. Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land
This was another Book of the Month selection I skipped on but hope to still get to. I love stories revolving around serial killers, and this one seems like it won’t be any different!
So this is my grown-up book wishlist for Christmas! Of course, if anyone feels like donating a book to me, I DEFINITELY won’t say no! I’ll even return the favor and send a book in return! (Wink, wink. All kidding aside, I’m serious…) Most of these are new releases that I missed out on because the book choices this year have been out of this world! What are a few books on your Holiday wishlist? Do we have any in common? Let me know below!!
