December 22: Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree This Year
Despite the fact that I purchase 99% of the books I want throughout the year, there are always a few that slip by the wayside. I’m pretty sure I’ve been a good girl this year, so any of these would be appreciated St. Nick!
1. None Of The Above by I.W. Gregorio
This has been receiving nothing but good reviews and I definitely need to delve into this subgenre sooner rather than later.
2. More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
Ditto ‘None Of The Above’ – it just sounds like a truly eye opening read littered with excellent life lessons.
3. Beastly by Alex Flinn
The whole concept of this book intrigues me (and the film looks half decent, starring Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens).
4. I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
This sounds like an interesting take on a road-trip story, with deeper meaning and more complex characters.
5. Winger by Andrew Smith
This is a book that I don’t know one thing about (except that the cover is amazing), but it’s received so much positive press that I’m willing to jump into it blind.
6. Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis
I absolutely adore all things fairytale, and this novel sounds so amazing, and not just your average re-telling (it sounds like it has some Marissa Meyer vibes!)
7. Through the Dark by Alexandra Bracken
I own ‘The Darkest Minds’ trilogy, but no series is complete without the novellas (I really need to get on and begin these novels in 2016).
8. The Bookshop Book by Jen Campbell
I read a book by Jen Campbell this year and found it absolutely hilarious, and this is literally a book about books – what could be better?!
9. Orange Is The New Black: My Time In A Women’s Prison by Piper Kerman
Despite never having seen the TV show (yet) the autobiographical premise of this book intrigues me. I don’t read enough non-fiction, and I think this might be a good way to explore that genre more.
10. The Tiger In The Smoke by Margery Allingham
The second time I heard J.K. Rowling speak at an event, she quoted this book as being probably her favourite crime novel of all time, and if it’s good enough for Jo, it’s certainly good enough for me!
