Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings
Oooh, books I want. This is basically my wishlist of book I want that have already been released. The ones I want most…like right now. I can haz?
1. So Silver Bright by Lisa Mantchev (Theatre Illuminata #3) – 2011
I love this series! It’s so different from anything I’ve read and my BAM didn’t have it. They didn’t order it. They had 1 copy of each of the previous books, but the 3rd came out, all shiny and new, and they didn’t want to carry it in their physical stores. Sure, they have room for a whole shelf section of Twilight, but they can’t fit a few copies of an under-appreciated book? *end rant*
2. Second Helpings by Megan McCafferty – 2003
I’ve heard so many good things about this series, so I finally read Sloppy Firsts (review to come!). It was amazing how much I could relate to Jessica, despite having been out of high school for a handful of years. And I really want to read more, but once again, not at BAM.
3. Sweetly by Jackson Pearce – 2011
I really liked Sisters Red. And those covers! They are like a straight line to my cover-loving heart!
4. Psych Major Syndrome by Alicia Thompson – 2009
For some reason, this is another one that’s hard to find in-store. It’s one of those rare books with a college-aged main character. I want this even more for the New Adult Challenge over at Tapestry of Words. Check it out!
5. Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson – 2010
Roadtrip + a guy you haven’t seen in forever + possible crush = the perfect recipe for catching my attention.
6. Beatle Meets Destiny by Gabrielle Williams – 2010
I will confess that I do not like The Beatles, but this book sounds awesome. And I’m hoping that there’s not actually that much about the band in it.
7. An Off Year by Claire Zulkey – 2009
Another college-aged character. Yay! A character who takes a year off? Yes please, I know we’ve all been tempted to take a break. Sometimes college feels like it takes foooorrrreeevvveeerrr.
8. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – 2011
So, it seems like every book has a main character that’s a different, possibly not human, why do I have special powers person. But this one seems different enough to work. Plus the main character is an art student. Bonus points!
9. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins – 2011
You know that book everyone has read but you? Anna and the French Kiss is that book this year. The summary just doesn’t appeal to me, but this one sounds great and if I love it I’ll be reading Anna.
10. The Death Cure by James Dashner – 2011
The Maze Runner was alright. The Scorch Trials was INTENSE. I must find out what happens next!
