Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, and feature lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to find bloggers that love the books you do.

December 22: Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree This Year

goblin emperor

1. The Goblin Emperor; Katherine Addison. I read this book about politics and a ruler who didn’t want to rule, and I’d like to read it again a few times.

rivers of london GN

2. Rivers of London (Graphic Novel); Ben Aaronovitch. I enjoy the books, and it’s always fun to see them in another medium.

raven shadow

3. Raven’s Shadow; Patricia Briggs. Another book by a favorite author I somehow haven’t read yet.

secret garden collectors

4. The Secret Garden; Frances Hodgson Burnett. I had a copy of this as a child, and trashed it. Someday I would like a special copy–leather bound, perhaps, to revisit.

diplomats fugitives

5. Diplomats & Fugitives; Lindsay Buroker. The latest in a series I enjoy, but it doesn’t follow my favorite characters, so I haven’t gotten it… yet.

finding magic

6. Finding Magic; Tanya Huff. A collection by an author I love, and a beautiful cover.


7. Namesake Set; Isabelle Melançon, Megan Lavey-Heaton.

city and city2

8. The City & The City; China Mieville. There are a few of his books I want to own and re-read, but I have been thinking about this one recently.

temporally out of order

9. Temporally Out of Order; Joshua Palmatier, Patricia Bray. A collection that includes some of my favorite authors. It could be amazing.

zen pencils

10. Zen Pencils; Gavin Aung Than. A collection of inspirational, illustrated quotes. Just the thing to help throw a spark.

    Very interesting list with several things I hadn’t heard of before. I’ve already hit amazon to download Temporally Out of Order, which I’m very much looking forward to reading. If Seanan McGuire is involved, I’m buying it! 🙂 Didn’t know about The Raven’s Shadow, so I’ll check that out, too, later. As always, love your Top Ten Tuesdays! 🙂

    • There’s always more books, right? I may get a few of these for myself after the holidays. 🙂
      I have the Raven books on a library wishlist, I just have to put them on hold… after I read all the books ahead of them.

  2. Definitely an interesting list! I like the title “Zen Pencils” lol. My TTT
