Top Ten Tuesday: Dear Santa,

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week they ask us to share lists on the following:

December 19: Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings

 

Husband and I have decided to curb our expenses each month and save up some money for a down payment on a new truck.  We have an ambitus amount of money to save each month so we are both making some serious sacrifices and one of mine is to give up all book purchases for a year.  No thrift books, no new releases by favorite authors, no book purchases at all.  It will be tough but I do work for a library and can always inter-library loan the books I want to read and it isn’t forever.  Below are ten books I would love to receive as gifts in the meanwhile.

December 19: Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings

  1. Blood Fury (Black Dagger Legacy, #3) This book would be kind of hard for Santa to bring as it doesn’t release until January 9th but I would love to receive this book as a gift!
  2. Insurrection (Nevermore, #1) This is a self-published book by my favorite author that I just might buy for myself before this list publishes.  I know I am supposed to be saving for a truck but this only costs $4.99 for an e-book and Barnes and Nobel accepts PayPal now.  So weak…  (Update: Yep, I bought it but Santa could always bring me the hardcover copy.)
  3. Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal  I’m not a religious person but I do enjoy books that seem to poke fun at the Christian faith and those that take it oh so seriously.  This book while ironic that I am asking Santa for seems like it would be a perfect Christmas read :).
  4. How to Be Depressed: A Guide  This book was mentioned on one of the YouTube news programs that I enjoy.  Being that I’m struggling with a bit of depression I thought this book would be a perfect how-to guide.
  5. Search for Spock: A Star Trek Book of Exploration: A Highly Illogical Parody  Most of the books on this list are meant to be for fun.  There really isn’t any books that I need right now as I have a Nook full of titles to read and not one but two bookcase of titles waiting their turn. This book, however, I really want this title.  Who wants to mail me a copy.  Pretty please.  I’ll love you forever.  (kidding, kinda…)
  6. Immortally Yours (Argeneau #26)  I already read this book but I would love to have my own copy to go with my almost complete series in my home library.
  7. Reincarnation Blues Another book that I’ve already read but would like to own my own copy.
  8. Steal Across the Sky This is an author that I discovered this or last year and I have seen that this is one of the works she is better known for.  I would love the opportunity to read it.
  9. Star Trek:  Voyager:  The Complete Series I know.  This is not a book.  BUT, it is something I desperately want to add to my home “library” (DVD library….) Husband and I started binge watching Star Trek: Next Generation (made it through season one!) and I would love to dive into Voyager after we finish ST:NG.
  10. Star Trek:  Enterprise:  The Complete Series Also not a book.  I ran out of books that I wanted to ask Santa for….  I’ve either read them all and don’t need them in my home library or they haven’t released yet.  So I would love to also own Star Trek: Enterprise to start after we finish Star Trek: Voyager.

There is my list for this week,  what book do you hope to receive this holiday season?
