Top Ten Tuesday - Top Books I Will Be Buying Myself for Christmas

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. They feature a different top ten list every week. This week's topic is top books I want Santa to bring me. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't typically get books for Christmas. I do usually get at least one Amazon gift card though. I will be using it to buy myself some of the newer releases that my budget has prevented me from buying so far!

1. The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle

2. Mosquitoland by David Arnold

3. Saint Anything by Sarah Dressen

4. A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

5. These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly

6. Ink and Bone (The Great Library #1) by Rachel Caine

7. A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara

8. Blood and Salt (Blood and Salt #1) by Kim Liggett

9. Truest by Jackie Lea Sommers

10. Everything I Needed To Know About Being A Girl I Learned From Judy Blume by Meg Cabot, Jennifer O'Connell, and Beth Kendrick


What books are on your Christmas wish list?

  3. I approve of this list! You will LOVE this list, I promise. This reads like my Top Books of 2015!! I um, own all of these but two. Which means we are officially (like we didn't know it before hah!) book twins. I have also seen A Little Life on several lists this week! You shall have to obtain, read, and let me know :D FABULOUS choices, of course!

    1. Thanks Shannon! I am fairly certain that most of the books on this list are only here because of your reviews. :)

  4. I really liked Mosquitoland, so I'm hoping you buy that first! Well, and the rest as well. I actually started Ink and Bone, but had to return it to the library, so in the end I never finished it.

  8. I do the same thing, people don't tend to get me books for Christmas so I usually buy them with money I get. You have some awesome choices on this list! Merry Christmas!
