Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This is probably a little late for Santa, who is definitely more organised than this, but here goes! Ten books I would like for Christmas:
After You by Jojo Moyes
I’m not sure how she’s going to follow Me Before You, but I’d like to find out!
The Lake House by Kate Morton
Kate Morton’s generation-spanning mysteries are some of my favourite novels, and I’ve been waiting three years for this one!
The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood
Margaret Atwood + dystopia = of course I want to read this.
All the books by Robin Hobb
I have read the first three, now I need to read the rest! Although it would probably take me a whole year…
The Radleys by Matt Haig
I loved The Humans, Echo Boy and A Boy Called Christmas, so perhaps it’s simply Matt Haig’s writing that I love.
The Marble Collector by Cecelia Ahern
I think I’ve read all of Cecelia Ahern’s books, and although I was disappointed by How to Fall in Love, I’d still like to see what this one is like. Just realised I also missed The Year I Met You, so Santa can always substitute!
The Fox and the Star by Coralie Bickford-Smith
Despite being unconvinced by the binding the first time I saw this (publishing geek), it is beautiful, and if it’s Waterstones Book of the Year then it can’t be bad!
Collected Poems by Carol Ann Duffy
I need some new poetry, and I know she is brilliant. The World’s Wife was genius.
Listography journal by Nola Russell
OK, this is kind of cheating because it is a notebook, but I really love lists.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J. K. Rowling, illustrated by Jim Kay
Because apparently three gorgeous editions of Philosopher’s Stone aren’t enough.
How about you?
