Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Ten Books I’d Love To Find Under The Tree.
- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (J.K. Rowling; illustrated by Jim Kay; UK edition)
- Unbound and Revisionary (Magic Ex Libris series by Jim C. Hines; hardcover)
- The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear (Kingkiller Chronicle byPatrick Rothfuss; hardcover) — I have these in audiobook but I really want good hardcover copies to reread and refer to before the third book comes out (whenever that might be. It could be years…)
- Congress of Secrets (Stephanie Burgis; paperback)
- Den of Wolves (Blackthorn & Grim series by Juliet Marillier; hardcover)
- Elite (Hunter series by Mercedes Lackey; Kindle edition) — I read book #1 as an ARC, but didn’t get approved for the sequel, and none of my libraries has it.
I’d be very happy if someone preordered either of these for me! (I have already preordered or received ARCs of many of the January-thru-June titles I’m looking forward to, but not these two.)
- Wires and Nerve (Marissa Meyer; Iko series; graphic novel)
- The Dragon with the Chocolate Heart (Stephanie Burgis)

You can never go wrong with an illustrated Harry Potter book. They are works of art! I hope you find some of these under your tree!

Thank you, Trish! I agree; those books are purely gorgeous.

That Harry Potter book looks gorgeous and Wires and Nerve sounds fantastic. It’s on my TBR too! I’d like to try some Patrick Rothfuss this year. He always has the best covers! Great list!

Rothfuss takes some getting into, but once the story really takes hold, wow! He’s an amazing writer. As for Wires & Nerve, I can hardly wait! I really love Iko.

Beautiful Harry Potter book! I want to read the Rothfuss series sometime. Interesting choices…

The Rothfuss series is amazing, and the illustrated HP books are so pretty!
Lisa @ Captivated Reader
I hope you receive all the books on your list this year. Happy holidays!!
Here’s my TTT post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2016/12/top-ten-tuesday-ten-books-i-wouldnt.html
Thank you, and I wish you the same!
That’s a great stack of books! Here’s hoping it’s a happy (and bookish!) Christmas morning at your house. 🙂
Thank you, Lark! I hope you have a great and bookish holiday, too!
So pretty! I love all these covers. I really want to get the illustrated Harry Potter books. One of these days I will read J.C. Hines’s books. Den of Wolves sounds good too. Great list, Lark! Have a wonderful holiday season!

I probably shouldn’t have put Den of Wolves on the list, because I haven’t finished the first book in the series… but I want to. They’re really good. And I got the first illustrated HP book last year, so naturally, I have to complete the set as they come available! (Seriously, they are so gorgeous, it’s worth having even if you already own the HP books.)
I’m so with you with the Illustrated Harry Potter books.
I need both the 1st and 2nd and I keep leaving hints to my parents so *fingers crossed*

I hope you find at least one under your tree, then!
Great list! Especially that HP. I put that on my list to Santa:)

I love Jim Kay’s illustrations in the first book; I’m really looking forward to having the whole collection. (Even though I already own them all in hardcover with the Mary GrandPre covers.)
Cyn @ Book Munchies
Fantastic list! I’m so excited for Wires and Nerve, I love that we get more Lunar Chronicles universe! And always yes to more pretty illustrated HP! I have Name of the Wind, but I haven’t started it, need to fix that soon.
Hope you get a few of these under the tree!
