We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is Books I Hope To Find Under The Christmas Tree. I already shared my Christmas Wishlist for the Book Swap I’m participating in, and my wishlist for the swap Candyce and I are doing with our friend. We’re doing just a couple of presents with the family and I didn’t want to ask just books. Nevertheless, these are 10 books I would love to find under the Christmas tree tomorrow morning.
1.The Dark Vault – V.E. Schwab
I love V.E. Schwab’s books and this series is one of the only things missing from my V.E. Schwab collection. After this is also need The Near Witch and I’ll be complete! I have put getting this one off for a while since there’s no conclusion to the series and there doesn’t seem to be one in the making. It’s going to suck not getting an answer of conclusion to the story but it does sound like an amazing adventure and I would love to experience it.
2. Dead Voices – Katherine Arden
I looooved Small Spaces by Katherine Arden and I am desperately waiting to read the sequel. There will be four books in this series, all taking place during a different season. It’s a MG series and it was soooo scary. I will admit I scare pretty easily but this book did an amazing job. It was a very fast read and I couldn’t put it down. Also, I will never ever look at scarecrows the same after Small Spaces. Hopefully Dead Voices is equally wonderful.
3. D.O.G.S. – M.A. Bennett
I finally read S.T.A.G.S. last month and while writing my review I found out there is a sequel! While I liked how S.T.A.G.S. ended I am excited to read how this story continues. Apparently there are going to be five books in this series. I’m not sure where the story will go with that many books but I liked the first one enough to pick up the rest. It wasn’t the most unique story I ever read, but I was definitely entertained.
4. The Library of the Unwritten – A.J. Hackwith
This synopsis sounds so amazing! I can’t believe more people aren’t talking about this book. It released in October and is the first book in a new series. The story is about a space in Hell where all unfinished stories reside. That only sounds intriguing, but apparently characters emerge from the books and the Librarian has to track them down. I don’t even want to know more than that because it would be a shame to spoil anything.
5. The Future of Another Timeline – Annalee Newitz
I adored The Psychology of Time Travel last February and I have been craving another wonderful time travel story. This one just might be it! We follow two women from different timelines who travel to other time periods. Do you still follow it? Haha. It also looks like it is a very diverse and feminist story and I’m always in for that. And have you seen that cover yet?
6. Now Entering Adamsville – Francesca Zappia
After LOVING Eliza and her Monsters I have been looking forward to Now Entering Adamsville. Even without really knowing what this one is about. Eliza and her Monsters was such an amazing and relatable read and I have high hopes for this one. The moment I realized this one is a paranormal mystery I got even more intrigued! I also really want this gorgeous cover on my bookshelves.
7. Fence vol. 3 – C.S. Pacat
I adored the first two volumes of Fence this year and I’m still a bit confused as to why I haven’t gotten this one yet. This is one of my favorite graphic novel series at the moment and the second volume ended on a cliffhanger. All reasons to read the third one as soon as possible! I hope to make this one of my first books of 2020.
8. Middlegame – Seanan McGuire
I’ve really enjoyed Seanan McGuire’s Wayward Children series and I plan on reading more by her. Middlegame has been mentioned a lot this year even though not that many people I follow I have read it yet. I think the story sounds great and I love the look of the cover. This is a science fiction novel and I plan on reading more of those in the coming year.
9. My Sister the Serial Killer – Oyinkan Braithwaite
This is a pretty short mystery thriller and I was drawn in by the title to be honest haha. But I’ve also seen some good reviews for it recently so I’m even more excited now. I also really like that it’s set in Nigeria, which is a setting I don’t come across that often. The author is from Nigeria so I think it will be great reading this from that point of view.
10. Mortal Engines – Philip Reeve
The moment I saw the trailer for the movie adaptation I knew I wanted to read this one. A friend of mine really enjoyed the books and I have just been putting it off. I have had this one in my hands in bookstores so many times already! The world sounds super cool and that is the main reason I would love to read this book. I still haven’t seen the movie because I have to wait until I’ve read the book haha.
These are 10 books I hope to find under the Christmas tree tomorrow morning! I think there will only be one of two books in the present stack this time but with the insane backlist I have accumulated in the recent years I’m all set for a while haha. What are some books you hope to find under the Christmas tree? Tell me all about it in the comments!
