Top Ten Tuesday: Christmas Wish List



As always, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
(Covers link to Goodreads.)

Today's topic is: Top Ten Books I wouldn't mind Santa bringing this year.

People wondering what last minute gifts to get me for Christmas - take note. :-)
1-5 are books I've read and want to own copies of, and 6-10 are books I haven't read yet.

1. The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien.
I desperately want a nice box set. There are so many gorgeous ones out there!
   

2. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein.
So I can reread it and torture myself again and again and again.

3. The Grisha books by Leigh Bardugo.
Hardcover, of course. No paperback for these beautiful babies.

  1. Those are gorgeous, gorgeous sets of Tolkien's works! I have my own copies of his trilogy and The Hobbit but they're old second hand copies. Now I want those sets so bad!

  2. Oh, the Tolkien sets look wonderful. I would love, love, love a beautiful copy like those. Probably Narnia ones too! :)

    I also want hardback copies of the Grisha Trilogy. <33

  4. Fun covers! I own The Lord of the Rings Folio Edition ..... I stumbled upon a good price on Ebay .... but it would be nice to add The Hobbit and The Silmarillion too!
