Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing This Year

 It's time for Top Ten Tuesday!

This week's theme is fitting for the upcoming holiday.

 Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing This Year

1. Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand: I have heard great things about this book but every time I go to buy it, the size intimidates me and I give up on it. Perhaps if someone else got it for me, it would give me the spurring I need to go ahead and start reading it!

2. American Gods by Neil Gaiman: I have heard wonderful things about this book, and Gaiman is a newly discovered author for me so I am ready to dive into more of his work.

3. Fight Club by Chuck Palahnuik: This book has been on me to-read list for far too long!

4. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith: My sister-in-law read this and loved it and we have fairly similar taste in books so I want to read it too!

5. Stardust by Neil Gaiman: Here is another one by Gaiman. I loved the movie and as we all know, the book is always better!

6. Where The Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein: Well, the secret is out.  I am four months pregnant.  My dad read this to me as a little girl and I would love to read it to my little peanut!

7. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller:  I adored this book and would love to add it to my library.

8.  Gulp by Mary Roach.  I love her books and this one sounds fascinating.

9. The World's Strongest Librarian by Josh Hanagarne: I love libraries and librarians.  I still remember my elementary school librarian and how great she was at introducing me to new books.

10. Neil Patrick Harris's Choose Your Own Adventure Autobiography:  I love NPH and am so curious how this book works.


  1. Great list! Those are some excellent Neil Gaiman titles you listed--hope you find them and the other books on your list under your tree in a few days :)

  2. I adore A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. I actually do have that one of my shelf. It's amazing.

    I hope you get a ton of great books for Christmas. Here's my wishlist.

    I still have a $30 giveaway to Amazon going so maybe I can help you get some of these books.
