What better time of year that around Christmas to write a post of my top ten books on my wishlist? I found out about this Top Ten Tuesday from the Broke and the Bookish and here are others who have done the top ten list! This is a great time to get some new ideas for your own books to read list! Now, in no particular order:
1) The Lonely Hearts Hotel by Heather O’Neill
I am secretly hoping this will be a lot like Angela Carter’s Nights at the Circus! I read Nights at the Circus for a magical realism self study unit I did for my Masters.
2) Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel
Having just watched the Iron Giant, I want to read this and find out if it’s anything like it.
3) The Vegetarian by Han Kang
I read Human Acts and now I want to read this earlier novel by her.
4) Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
First of all, that last name. Secondly, I have been getting into suspense and mystery novels more this year and I really want to try this one.
5) Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I have only heard good things about this and really want to see if it lives up to the hype.
6) Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
Having just joined the #bookstagram community, they all rave about Sarah J Maas, so I feel like I need to read one of her books and find out what everyone else loves!
7) A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
Same reasons from above!
8) American Gods by Neil Gaiman
I have never read anything of his, so I really want to just read something and find out, again, what the hype is.
9) The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
This book sounds out of this world, like a mix of pirates and Once Upon a Time.
10) Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Another instagram book hype. Maybe next year I should do an Instagram made me do it tag.
What is on your wishlist for Christmas?

Illuminae Is on my list this week too. I am incredibly intrigued. I hope that you get your hands on these books soon! Have a lovely Christmas!
I hope so too, I shall send my wishes to the santa elf!
Illumonae and The Girl from Everywhere are both books I really want to read. Great list! Personally, I’m not as big a fan as A Court of Thorns and Roses as everyone else seems to be, but I really hope you enjoy it.
yeah I’m not sure about that too, but it’s been so hyped…but that could backfire!
I loved American Gods, I hope you enjoy it. I’ve not managed to read Throne of Glass or Illuminae yet either but I see them everywhere. I really need to make a point of it next year, but I’m a little afraid of all the hype now!
yes the hype can be a bit scary sometimes!
I had a lot of fun reading “Sleeping Giants” this year but it still felt like there was a lot of unused potential, so I hope that the sequel will be even better!
“Illuminae” was among my top 3 favorite books in 2015 and I’m going to start “Gemina” soon, so I hope it will be just as good!
Good to know about Illuminae, I must read it!
Great list! We share Illuminae this week. Like you, I’ve been seeing it absolutely everywhere. So much hype! I definitely need to read more Sarah J Maas too. i recently read A Court of Thorns and Roses and it was amazing.
That’s really good to hear about Sarah J Maas, I want to read it! The instagram hype really makes certain books stand out
Illuminae is definitely on my list. I almost bought it for my Kindle but something told me this is a book you want to have a physical copy of.
I was so excited to see the vegetarian on your list! This is definitely on my wish list.
Truly madly guilty. I read aNother book by her. The name is slipping my mind right now but I really enjoyed it so it’s good to see this one.
Great selection! I hope Santa leaves a few of these underneath your tree this Christmas

MY TOP TEN TUESDAY
Yes, I’ve realized that bookstagram really favors in person books haha It also looks so gorgeous!
I read Human Acts by her and really loved the writing so I feel like I need to read it. Isn’t it so cool when you read one and find out they have MORE!
I hope that Santa does too…if my hints were not enough then I have to embrace my inner Santa.
Thank you for subscribing and following! I really appreciate it <3
