Top Ten Tuesday: Gift Me These

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week we’re discussing books we would like as gifts this holiday season. Usually when I ask for a specific book as a gift, it’s because I read it from the library and loved it, so now I need to own it. But for the sake of this TTT, I did five books I read and want to own, then five books I want but haven’t read.


1. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo: This book was great, but also it’s such a pretty book. Those black-edged pages slay me.

2.Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta: Can you believe I don’t own this? Can you believe there are any Marchetta books I don’t own? (To be honest, I read them all from the library so I only own about half of them)

3. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart: One of my favorite reads of the year, and one I definitely need to own.

4. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente: Do you ever have books you go back to when you’re feeling uninspired? This would be one of those books for me.

5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: Yeah, yeah. I’m always talking about the same books. Let’s move on.


6. Ferragost by Melina Marchetta: Remember about seven months ago when I was like “Everybody loves Ferragost and I can buy the ebook for super cheap, so I’m just going to bite the bullet and buy it”? Yeah, I still haven’t done that.

7. Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith: My library doesn’t have this ebook yet. And seeing as I’ve basically stopped going there ever since I figured out how to borrow my library system’s ebooks from the comfort of my apartment, I’m not reading this unless they get the ebook or someone literally delivers it to my door.

8. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: People love this book and I’ve wanted to read it for ages, but my library database only carries this in audio-book form, which isn’t my style. My mind wanders too much for audio-books to be effective.

9. Radiance by Catherynne M. Valente: How great is this cover? How great is this woman?

10. Cress by Marissa Meyer: I’m on the wait-list to download this ebook, but I love this series so far and I would like to read this book now please.


Happy holidays, everyone!

    Oo! Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and The Night Circus are both on mine. Glad I’m not the only one who hasn’t read these yet. ^.^

    And ‘Saving Francesca’ sounds quite interesting. I may have to pick that up at some point. ^.^

    I bought The Night Circus at the beginning of the year and still haven’t had the chance to read it yet! I recently was able to get my hands on Six of Crows as well. 😀 Great list! I am currently reading Cress now!


  3. Heather says:

    Great list! There’s a few on these that I’ve never heard of but that look really great, I especially like the look of The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (I love books with ridiculously long titles). I hope you find some of these under your tree 🙂

    The Radiance cover is radiant, omg, so pretty. Your list is almost completely either books I love, or books on my TBR, so I hope you get them all and enjoy them! Cress is fantastic, and I’m desperate to get my hands on Winter.

    Merry Christmas!
