Top Ten Tuesday: Dear Santa…

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

What I’d love for dear old Santa to drop down my chimney this Sunday:

1.  Harry Potter Page to Screen by Bob McCabe – an obvious gift for the Potter lover and also the only book on this list I might actually end up getting from Santa Hubs.

2.  The original U.K. hardcover editions of all 7 HP books – For my permanent home library and because my paperback copies are nearing the end of their life.

3.  The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald – Read in high school but need to reread for upcoming movie release.  Also want in hardcover to add to the shelves.

4.  The Hobbit by Tolkien – Same as #3.  So many book-to-screen adaptations releasing this year!

5.  The entire Roald Dahl collection – Want to reread all his novels in the coming year.

6.  The Professor by Charlotte Bronte – The last Charlotte Bronte novel I haven’t read.  I love when I read all of one particular author’s novels.  Makes me feel well read.

7.  In the Garden of Beasts:  Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin by Erik Larson – I loved Larson’s Devil in the White City and can’t wait to read this!

8.  Bossypants by Tina Fey – Want this on audiobook!  Love Tina Fey so very much.

9.  Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy – Have never really read any Russian literature and need to remedy this immediately.  Always been far too intimidated.

10.  Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov – Want to know what all the fuss is about!

  1. You have quite a range of books there. I didn’t know they were working on a movie for The Great Gatsby. That’s definitely interesting. As for The Hobbit, I really need to get that read now. I know my dad (who is a non-reader that loves the Lord of the Rings movies) will want to see it but my motto (for me) is very firmly “Books first.” Anyway, I hope that you find some wonderful stuff under the tree.

    Have a great day! Merry Christmas!

    • My reading tends to be a bit all over the place! The new Gatsby movie stills love amazing even though I’m not the biggest Leo fan. Merry Christmas to you as well!

  2. Roald Dahl is amazing. I too would love to own all his books in matching gorgeous covers!

    Happy Holidays! I hope that more than one of these books makes an appearance on Sunday! (so long as you celebrate Christmas… otherwise that might be a little strange…) 😉

    • Really looking forward to Anna Karenina. I attempted to read it at age 13 and that only ended in disaster. Hopefully an additional 15 years will help the reading experience!

    • F. Scott Fitzgerald is one of my fav authors so Gatsby is a perfect gift for me! I’ve found that I enjoy the books I read in high school much more as an adult. Happy Holidays to you as well!

  3. I have been re-collecting Roald Dahl’s for a while now. I had them all as a kid, and I can’t believe I got rid of them. So, now I’m scouring thrift stores to get a full collection again.
