Top Ten Tuesday : All I want for Christmas


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic :

Books I Hope Santa Brings

Strictly speaking I’m cheating here because I think most of these books are not yet released.  But, these are book that are very much on my wishlist so if Santa is listening and wants to perform a little bit of magic… then who am I to stand in the way.

Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir – because I love this author’s books so this one has been on my wishlist since I found out about it.


Mirrorland by Carole Johnstone – A thrilling work of psychological suspense


The Chalet by Catherine Cooper – French Alps, 1998.Two young men ski into a blizzard… but only one returns.  20 years later…


The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Cooper – this one sounds absolutely awesome and I loved the author’s last book.  I can’t wait.


Harrow Lake by Cat Ellis – A can’t-put-down, creepy thriller about the daughter of a horror film director who’s not afraid of anything–until she gets to Harrow Lake.


The Blacktongue Thief by Christopher Buehlman – Set in a world of goblin wars, stag-sized battle ravens, and assassins who kill with deadly tattoos -OMG – just take my money already, you had me at ‘goblin wars’.


The Witch’s Heart by Genevieve Gornichec – When a banished witch falls in love with the legendary trickster Loki, she risks the wrath of the gods.


Dowry of Blood by ST Gibson – Dracula’s wives? Sign me up. Now.


The Return of the Sorceress by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – I literally have no idea what this is about but I don’t care.  I want it.  I love this author.


The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins – I can’t.  A Jane Eyre retelling – I have palpitations.  A delicious twist on a Gothic classic

    I’ve read Mirrorland and The Chalet. The Chalet is really addictive and I thought Mirrorland was really unique. I hope you enjoy them when you get the chance to read them.

      That’s good to hear – I’m really looking forward to both.
      Lynn 😀

    I’ve seen some nice reviews of The Wife Upstairs just in the last few days.

    Awesome list, Lynn! The Blackstone Thief is one of my most anticipated books😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      So many good books to look forward to. Can’t wait to get started.
      Lynn 😀

    Great list, Lynn! 😀

  5. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Yeah I really want to fast forward time to get to a few of these goodies 😀

      Yes, they won’t be under the tree – but not long.

    IK’m very curious about Project Hail Mary!

    Oh help, there are so many books here that I just know I’m going to have to look out for 😀 A Jane Eyre retelling, yes please! And there’s little chance I’ll be able to resist a tale about Dracula’s wives. I’ve seen the Needless Street cover around a lot recently and that alone caught my attention. Harrow Lake is one I haven’t heard of but I like the sound of it, and I’ve only read one by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Mexican Gothic, so I’ll have her backlist to look forward to whilst waiting for a new book.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Ohh,I think we have a lot of good books to look forward to. It’s very exciting.

    Lynn, while you won’t be able to find any of these under the tree tomorrow without the assistance of magic, I do hope it won’t be long till you can get your hands on copies of these beauties! 😁
