Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a book blog tag hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! I'm back home now, for Christmas and for BYU-I's Winter semester, so here we are. Today's topic is Top Ten Books I'd Like Santa to Bring Me This Year. So I'll pull the top ten from my Amazon wishlist to give you the goods:
1) Winter by Marissa Meyer. How could I not put the final book in The Lunar Chronicles (YA sci-fi fairytale retelling) on this list? I own the others, I'm super excited for this one, and my mom likes them too.
2) Rae Carson's The Girl of Fire and Thorns Trilogy. After discovering this YA fantasy trilogy during the past year, I fell totally in love. It's spectacular, it's complex, the main character is wonderful, and I want all three books for my very own.
3) The last two books in Beth Revis's Across the Universe Trilogy This is a favorite YA sci-fi romance of mine, and a friend of mine gave me the first book this year, so why not put the next two on my list?
4) Leigh Bardugo's The Grisha Trilogy. Another gorgeous YA fantasy trilogy that I think would do quite nicely on my shelves. Even though there's no room for one book, let alone three. Whoops.
5) Kiera Cass's The Selection Trilogy. I've liked this YA dystopian romance for quite a while now, so it's about time I put the three books on my shelf. They're a really fun read, and everyone could use that.
6) The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. It's a brilliant feminist classic, an adult dystopian with real power, and I feel like I need to have it on hand.
7) Frindle by Andrew Clements. The most classic of Andrew Clements's books deserves a place with me. It's too awesome to miss out on, especially as a word person.
8) The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster and Julies Feiffer. Another children's classic designed for people who love language.
9) S.J. Kincaid's Insignia Trilogy. This YA sci-fi trilogy has been just the most fascinating and enjoyable ride, sort of Unwind meets Alex Rider in tone and feel, and I own both those series. I can't leave this one behind.
10) Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman. Shusterman's one of my favorite authors, and this YA contemporary gives such a fascinating and complex insight into schizophrenia that I can't help but want it.
Now, that's like a third of my total books-to-own list right now, and I'm sure it'll grow, but it's definitely got the goodies. Thanks, Santa, for whatever you do bring! :) And I'll talk to you, my readers, again tomorrow.
