December 20: Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree
Despite purchasing almost all the books I possess even the slightest interest in, there are always a few that, for some reason, I didn’t pick up. This time last year, remarkably, Santa (hey, Mum!) actually read my blog for once and delivered three of the ten books I listed in my TTT. Here’s hoping it works its magic once again!
1. Ask the Passengers by A.S. King
I really want to read more LGBTQ fiction in 2017, and this one has been recommended above all others. Sold.
2. Everything Leads To You by Nina LaCour
Ditto the above, this novel has also had some fabulous reviews. *grabby hands*
3. The Geek’s Guide To Unrequited Love by Sarvenaz Tash
The title alone sounds oh so relevant.
4. All My Friends Are Superheroes by Andrew Kaufman
Carrie Hope Fletcher has praised this book (I believe she once stated it as being her favourite novel), so I want to give it a go.
5. Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith
Andrew Smith’s novels are repeatedly recommended to me (I do own Winger) but I’ve yet to read any: maybe this is the one to start with?
6. The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy: A Trilogy In Five Parts by Douglas Adams
This series has been on my radar for an age, but for some reason I’ve never picked it up: I’ve heard it’s hilarious.
7. Orangeboy by Patrick Lawrence
A new addition to my TBR, this YA has received a huge amount of positive press since its release earlier this year.
8. Apple and Rain by Sarah Crossan
I read One earlier this year and absolutely adored it: I’m definitely not an expert when it comes to poetry/free verse, but the story was beautiful and the manner of delivery extraordinary, so I want to explore more by the author.
9. The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell
This middle-grade novel received a lot of hype upon its release in 2015, and for some reason I didn’t pick it up – I will.
10. Something In Between by Melissa de la Cruz
I’m currently reading The Isle of the Lost and it’s wonderfully magical, so I’m hoping her new YA novel is fabulous.
