Happy Tuesday guys! It’s been ages since I last posted? Yeah, the life is going little tough right now with the new job in the new city and whole home arrangement. I know, I should have scheduled posts in advance but really I don’t have any excuse for this 🙁 But alas, finally my WiFi is up and running so I am able to write this post and luckily it’s the Top Ten Tuesday 😀
Christmas is around the corner and I can definitely see the festive vibes around me. Though we don’t celebrate Christmas here, still it brings joy to me. Today’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings.
Well, I have tons of books are on my wishlist and probably more than that are in my TBR 😀 Still books can’t be enough, right? 😀 Most of the books on my wishlist are because of the beautiful covers 😛 So let’s see what I wish for this Christmas (though I know there is no Santa here for me 🙁 ).
Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings
These all have lovely covers, isn’t it? This Barnes & Noble edition of Grimm’s Fairy Tales is so beautiful I can’t even. I so want this edition but I can’t see myself getting this sooner. It is just too costly here 🙁 Well, let’s hope there is actually any Santa 😀
Bloomsbury has recently launched 10 modern classics in new editions and they are so beautiful. I won one book in Bloomsbury giveaway but the one that I want is The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. I haven’t read any Khaled Hosseini’s books yet (I know) and when I saw this edition, I just knew that I have to read this.
One Hundred Nights of Hero by Isabel Greenberg is a graphic novel about which I came to know from The Book Satchel on Instagram. I always trust her recommendations and well, the story and illustrations seem amazing. Yes, it is costly too so I can’t afford it now 🙁
F.Scott Fitzgerald is another renowned author that I am yet to read. I have seen The Great Gatsby movie and I loved it (maybe because of Leonardo? 😀 ) so I want to read this book for so long. This edition of The Great Gatsby is so beautiful and I definitely want to own it. Other books in this edition by Penguin are equally beautiful.
Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward recently got the National Book Award and was in so much hype. I have read great reviews about this book from fellow bloggers. I definitely want to own and read it soon.
In my childhood, we were not encouraged to read books out of the course so I can’t say that I am reading from my childhood. Because of this I still have to read many children classics and one of those classics is Anne of Green Gables. The other reasons for me to select this is the cover of this Puffin Bloom edition (off course) and the Netflix series that I want to see but only after I read it 🙂
The Book of Chocolate Saints by Jeet Thayil is currently in a lot of discussion among Indian book lovers. The publisher, Aleph Book Company, is slowly making its place in my favourite Indian publishers list because of their selection of unique categories. This is one of my highly anticipated book from their catalog.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han is in my TBR for too long now but I am not able to purchase this till date because of the high price of the hardcover. I haven’t started this series yet but I am sure that this is going to be a 4 or 5 star read for me 😀 I love contemporaries!
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns has recently gathered a lot of applause and great reviews and I too was excited after reading the blurb. it sure sounds interesting and I am secretly wishing to get the hardcover somehow 😛
My list would have been incomplete without including a non-fiction. Recently I discovered that I love reading non-fiction but obviously in certain categories, so I have decided to read more non-fiction next year. And the next in line is In Order to Live by Yeonmi Park who is famous for her escape from North Korea. I was hooked when I saw her interviews on YouTube so I definitely want to read this.
Which books do you want to have from Santa for this Christmas?
What’s the main thing that attracts you first to move it to your wishlist – the cover or the blurb?
