Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me

Hi and welcome to Top Ten Tuesday, an original weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me. This is the time of year where we all do our holiday shopping (unless you're really good and do it before). And in my search for awesome gifts, it's really hard not to find  things to put on my own wishlist. So here is a list of books I'd love to see under the Christmas tree. 

Smitten Kitchen - I love the Smitten Kitchen blog and have been waiting for her book to come out. Yummy recipes and pretty pictures. What more could you ask for?

Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Mayberry - I really want to read this series. I love zombies and these covers look super creepy!

Ten by Gretchen McNeil - This spooky YA book has been out for a couple of months now and I've somehow managed not to buy it yet. 

Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick - I know, I know. I still haven't read Silence yet but I am a fan of Becca's and need the final book in her Hush, Hush trilogy. 

Playing To Win by Jaci Burton - Lord this series has awesome man candy covers. I have a lot of fun reading this series and want to read Cole's story.

True Blood Cookbook  - I am a total sucker for book/movie tie-in items and I really want to take a look at this cookbook. I think the mix of southern recipes with True Blood trivia might be really fun.

The Prince by Tiffany Reisz - I love The Original Sinner series by Tiffany Reisz. It's so original and very addictive. The Prince is the third book in the series and my favorite. Kingsley and Søren's story is so good! And though I have this on my Kindle, I would love a physical copy of it. 

Alice In Zombieland by Gena Showalter - I love the cover to this one. I've looked at in in store and the book has all of these really gorgeous details on the book jacket and in the pages. Definitely one I'd like to have in physical form.

Parasol Protectorate Box Set - I already own three of these books but I would love to have the whole series in this great looking box set. 

Third Grave Dead Ahead by Darynda Jones - I need to catch up on this funny, paranormal series. I think book four just came out but I still need to read three.

I'd love to hear what books you have on your Christmas list. Leave a link and I'll stop by! 



  1. The Smitten Kitchen cookbook looks great. Thanks for putting that one on my radar. I'm a little scared about the recipes in the True Blood cookbook but the drinks sound good. I see the Original Sinners ebooks on sale now and I'm tempted to grab them, especially seeing the third book on your list.
    Hope Santa delivers everything on your list!

    1. ooh i love the original sinners. yeah i am usually skeptical about tie-in cookbooks but i briefly flipped through this at sdcc and they looked like real recipes. i'd be willing to give it a shot.

  2. I haven't heard of some of these - I'll have to check them out (and most likely enhance my TBR list... lol).

  3. I actually added the Gail Carriger box set to my Amazon wishlist and made sure everyone saw it.

    I hope you get what you wish for :)

    The Aussie Zombie

    1. doesn't it look awesome? i want it!

  4. I really want to read Alice in Zombieland and Ten as well! And I don't usually buy cookbooks (which is probably why I can't cook) but I love the look of that one :)
    Thanks for stopping by! :)

  5. Ooh, some really good ideas here! More books to add to my list! I love the Gail Carriger books -- I hope Santa treats you well this year.

  6. TEN was pretty stinkin' good. Hope you get them all, either through Christmas gifts or just fun surprises!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  7. Finale is one I definitely need to read. It didn't make my list though but only because I don't have the rest of the series.

    Check out my TTT.

    Sandy @ Somewhere Only We Know

  8. Interesting list. I loved Rot & Ruin and want to finish the rest of the series. I hope Santa hooks you up with at least a few (or all) of them :-)
