December 19: Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings
Last year I wrote a post entitled Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree, and *shockingly* (s)he listened. I’m not expecting a Christmas miracle two years in a row, but just in case, these books are all available online, mother (and the top four are actually my top four for once!) Thanking you.
1. Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
I’ve heard that this novel is about art, fandom, and finding yourself; three things I am very interested in reading about.
2. Autoboyography by Christina Lauren
This is an LGBT novel where the main character is forced back into the closet as a result of moving house, and given that I’ve heard incredible reviews, I have high expectations for this book.
3. All Rights Reserved by Gregory Scott Katsoulis
This book is set in a world where every word and gesture is trademarked, and you have to pay for everything you say: as a premise this sounds amazing.
4. I’ll Be Home For Christmas by Various Authors
What better occasion could there be for receiving a Christmas related anthology than Christmas itself?
5. Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel
This has been pitched as a blend of sci-fi, political thriller and apocalyptic fiction, and how good does that sound?!
6. The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken
A contract, a curse, a demon: this is Alexandra Bracken’s first attempt at writing middle grade, and it has received such high praise that I need to read it, and winter sounds like the perfect time.
7. Lost Boy by Christina Henry
This Peter Pan retelling sounds wonderfully dark and twisted, and given that I love books of this nature, I have high expectations for this one.
8. False Hearts by Laura Lam
A couple of months ago, I unknowingly bought the second novel in this series, so having the first would certainly be helpful.
9. The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz
LGBTQ YA featuring PoC characters is honestly some of my favourite literature – and it’s so important too.
10. The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis
Having been nominated for a plethora of awards, this novel addresses the dark themes of murder and rape culture.
