Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is “Books I wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree This Year.”
I almost didn’t participate in this week’s meme, as I tend to buy books I want frequently. But then I remembered that Santa is magical and could totally bring me books that don’t exist!
I only did 5, mostly because I’m writing this instead of doing things I need to be, and because I couldn’t think of a ton more. So below is my list of books that I would want, whether or not they exist!
1. A Prequel Series to Harry Potter
I’m looking at you, J.K. Rowling! And I know I’m not the only one. First of all, I am SUPER EXCITED to hear more about The Cursed Child, but I would love a series about Harry’s parents getting in the war — I am guessing that generation had to grow up quickly too. Or more about McGonagall, or really anyone. This is one of the few series where I would not grown at the novellas or continuations. MILK IT, JO. (And seriously you are wonderful, thank you.)
2. The Next Book in the Shades of London series
So I know I’ll get this one eventually, but I doubt it’ll be a 2016 purchase. But I kind of need to know what happens next!
3. A Book that creeped me out as much as Christopher Pike
After my Goosebumps days, I read a ton of Christopher Pike books. I can’t remember where I got the first one…or even which one was my first one. But they were wonderfully creepy to my middle school self. So creepy, that I actually could not finish Monster. It creeped me out so much that I actually had to give the book away to get some distance. I never tried to read it again, partially because I know it wouldn’t scare me this much (same reason I won’t go see my hometown library — it will ruin the memory.)
4. A Cookbook For One With No Leftovers
Maybe this exists already? I don’t know. I just want a cookbook of good meals for one person that doesn’t leave me with leftovers. I’m not a big fan of leftovers, which leads to a lot of waste (I’m trying; I am!) or take out.
5. My Own Book, Finished and Bound!
Not that I would read it, but it would be fun to see. Which book idea though?
