Welcome to another contribution to Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week they are asking us to share books we would like to receive for Christmas. I posted about bookish gifts yesterday and mentioned how I couldn’t think of any books I really wanted. I tend to just buy I want to read or the titles I want most haven’t been released yet. That hasn’t changed, but we will see if I can manage to scrape together a list of ten titles that I would love to add to my collection.
Books I’d love to get for Christmas (if I was celebrating)
- Anything autographed by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I have most of the books she has publish in the series I read, but what I really would like is an autographed book by her. I have several signed books by my favorite authors, but one of hers is most coveted.
- Fourth Grave Beneath my Feet by Darynda Jones. This is the only book that I am missing from my collection of this series, so I would love it if someone would give me a copy of this one. Signed would be great too!
- How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper. I’ve been meaning to read this one for a while and it is surprisingly hard to get a hold of second-hand. I will probably end up borrowing it from another library, unless somebody wants to gift me a copy.
- All the Chronicles of Nick books out so far by Kenyon. I have been reading these through the library, but would really like to have a set for my Kenyon collection. There are only five books out so far, anyone wanna give them to me?
- Blood Assassin by Alexandra Ivy. I received an ARC e-copy of this book, as many of you may know you don’t get to keep most of those copies. I would love to have my own copy of this new series that I adore.
Well that is all I could come up with, and really those were a stretch, only #1 & #4 are serious covets. The rest will probably be mine with enough patients, continued checking of used book stores and e-deals at B&N or the other place. So to round out the last five I thought I would share five bookish wishes that many of you probably share.
- More time to read. Seriously who doesn’t want that.
- To read faster.
- For Amazon to stop pressuring authors to limit their books to their site. Stop it already. Monopolies are bad.
- To get to keep ARC e-copies that you really love.
- A chance to meet my favorite authors. Kenyon, Rhoades, Jones, and others…
