Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic comes straight from my Christmas/birthday wish list, and for the most part is in no particular order.
1) Wicked– In this instance, Wicked IS the number one book on my wish list! JLA, paranormal happenings, and a New Orleans setting? Yes please!
2) These Broken Stars– Gorgeous cover that I must own for my shelves plus I hear this is a fantastic book that I’m really late to the party for!
3) Winterspell– I’ve heard mixed tings about this book, but I reallly still want it because the Nutcracker is a tale near and dear to my heart, and I’m so excited to read a retelling of it!
4) A Thousand Pieces of You- I’ve heard great things about this exciting book that features jumping between dimensions and worlds.
5) A Mad, Wicked Folly– I love good historical fiction and I’ve heard good things about this book for a while, and I love the cover!
6) Lailah– I think it’s been long enough since the vampire boom that saturated the YA market that I can enjoy another vampire tale (and a well done love triangle!).
7) Wait for You- I’ve been wanting to start reading New Adult and I trust that Jennifer L Armentrout writes fantastic NA fiction!
8) The Book of Ivy– A newer release that sounds really intruging to me as it seems sort of a blend of a dystopian and the tv show Revenge (which is one of my favorites!)
9) Splintered and 10) Damsel Distressed– These are both fairytale retellings that I’ve heard other bloggers speak very highly about, and would be perfect to add to my TBR for the Fairytale Retelling Challenge I’m participating in for 2015!
Are any of these books on your holiday wishlist? Let me know in the comments!
Nice list of books!! I’ll have to check them out myself!! Here’s my TTT list for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2014/12/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-books-i-wouldnt.html
Thanks for stopping by!
A Thousand Pieces of You was a phenomenal read and I hope that you get to read it soon.
Great list and Merry Christmas!
I hope to enjoy it as much as you did! Happy holidays and thanks for stopping by!
Great list! These Broken Stars made my list, too, and I’d love a copy of A Mad, Wicked Folly. 🙂
I didn’t know These Broken Stars was out in paperback now, but I still sort of want the hardcover because the cover art is so stunning!
So many pretty books! I absolutely loved These Broken Stars. I hope you do too 🙂 I keep meaning to get my hands on a copy of A Mad Wicked Folly. I keep seeing it about! Merry Christmas! 😀
I love love love the cover of A Mad, Wicked Folly and I love a well written historical fiction novel! Have a good holiday this week!
I read A Thousand Pieces of You recently. It’s very good. Hope you’ll get it! 😀
Literally everyone I’ve talked to has said it’s incredible, so I’m not too worried about it being overhyped!
These Broken Stars and Splintered are great, I hope Santa brings them for you! 🙂 Also I hadn’t heard of A Thousand Pieces of You and that cover is just gorgeous! I’m adding it to my to read list now.
I’ll admit a big draw of both of those picks are the gorgeous covers! I hope you enjoy A Thousand Pieces of You, I’ve heard it’s amazing!
Lailah is on my list too. I really want to read that one! I didn’t include it on my list but I want to read Splintered too. 🙂
Lailah stands out to me because I feel like not a lot of authors have wanted to brave the vampire genre since the Twilight phase, but I do like vampires as the center of paranormal books, so I’m excited to venture into that again!
Santa is also welcome to drop Winterspell at my door. I can’t wait to get my hands on that one. I liked Splintered and I love the cover from A thousand pieces of you. A mad, wicked folly is also on my wish list. Great picks :)!
The Nutcracker was such a big part of my family’s holiday traditions when I was younger, so reading a retelling of it seems crucial to me (plus I’m wondering if it will broaden the scope of the type of retellings we’re going to see in the future, if they’ll deviate more from the standard snow white/cinderella/beauty and the beast/etc…I sure hope so!)
Im reading Splintered right now and its very good! Also I really enjoyed Lailah!
I’m excited to read your thoughts regarding Splintered!
Great list! The vast majority of these are on my TBR or I recently bought and still have to read! Maybe one of them can be our read for February or April 😉
That would be great!
YES ^^ I also would love for santa to bring me Winterspell, Splintered AND A Mad Wicked Folly 😀 Awesome selection you have here – I hope santa brings you all of these!! Happy holidays x
Thank you! I hope some of these titles find their way under your tree as well!
These Broken Stars is fantastic and the cover may be the most beautiful one I’ve ever laid eyes on.
I feel like it’s one I’ll have to break down and buy the hardcover of (even if it’s out in paperback already) because of the beauty of the cover.
Okay, so I want to read most of the books on your list!! They all sound like fantastic reads and I hope that you find some under your tree 😀
Merry Christmas 😀 x
(P.s — Great blog, I’ve just followed via Bloglovin!)
Thank you so much! 🙂
All of those covers are beautiful! I really enjoyed These Broken Stars and A Mad Wicked Folly, and Splintered is on my wish list this year as well. Hope you have an excellent Christmas! 🙂
I admit I am drawn to the attractive covers! I’ve heard great things about Splintered, hoping it comes your way for the holidays!
Great picks, so many good books on here that I either loved or really want to read. These Broken Stars was one of my favourite reads last year. A Thousand Pieces of You looks so good and has a gorgeous cover, really want to read that one myself. I hope you find at least a few of these under your tree this year 🙂
I don’t think I’ve seen ONE single bad review for These Broken Stars (which rarely happens) so I’m excited for it! Have a great holiday!
Most of these look good. I’ve heard Wicked has a funny fairy character so that just made my list too. I love the Nutcracker too but I haven’t heard many good things about Winterspell. Same with A Thousand Pieces of you, mixed reviews, but that one I think I will read. I hope you get all the books! 🙂
These Broken Stars is beautiful and such a good read. I hope you get it!
