Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Hope to Receive this Christmas

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!  This week’s topic is Books I Hope to Receive for Christmas.  This is a pretty easy list to make as I can always think of more books I’d love to read!

The Flame Bearer (The Last Kingdom #10) by Bernard Cornwell-Definitely one of my favorite series!

The Winter King (The Warlord Chronicles #1) by Bernard Cornwell-Since I’ve enjoyed The Last Kingdom series so much, I’d like to read more of Bernard Cornwell’s work.  This one sounds intriguing!


Ross Poldark (The Poldark Saga #1) by Winston Graham-I really enjoyed the show, and now I want to read the books!  If you’ve read the books and seen the show, which do you prefer?


How to Be a Tudor by Ruth Goodman-I absolutely loved her book How to Be Victorian, so I’m excited to read this one!


My Contrary Mary (Mary #1) by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows-I really loved the Janie series so I’m looking forward to trying this one!

Soul Taken (Mercy Thompson #13) by Patricia Briggs-Okay, so I’m cheating a bit by putting this on my list as it isn’t out yet, but it would be great if I could get it early!


Shatter the Earth (Cassandra Palmer #10) by Karen Chance-I’m so far behind in this series it isn’t even funny, but I’m collecting the books and will definitely get caught up!

Queen’s Gambit (Dorina Basarab #5)-I’m behind in this series too, but again, I will get caught up!

52770519. sx318 sy475

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab-I’ve yet to read anything by V.E. Schwab.  I really need to fix that and this book sounds intriguing!


When Christmas Comes by Andrew Klavan-A friend recommended this.  It sounds interesting!


Have you read any of these?  If so, what did you think?  If not, do any of these pique your interest?  Merry Christmas!


  1. Despite *STILL* not reading the Janie books, I did recently add ‘Mary’ to my shelf. Best get to reading and discover if I like them or not. Back when I was into the Poldark show, I had the intention of reading the books, but didn’t. Hope you enjoy if you read them – and that Santa leaves you some books, too! 🙂

    • The Janie books are a lot of fun, but the first is definitely my favorite. I’m hoping the Mary books are as much fun!

      Thanks for visiting and commenting! 🙂

  2. I’ve only watched a couple episodes of Poldark, but I did enjoy it. I’ve heard the books are good, too. I need to give them a go!

    Good luck with your wishlist and Happy TTT!


    • I really enjoyed Poldark the show, so I’m hoping I’ll like the books just as much!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting! 🙂

  3. I love VE Schwab, she’s one of my favourite authors, I hope you enjoy Addie LaRue.

    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

  5. Nice list!!

  6. Great list, and I’m a huge fan of Bernard Cornwell’s boos!

    • I’ve really enjoyed all the ones I’ve read so far. I’m hoping to branch out into his other series!

  7. So many great books! I hope Santa brings them all to you! Merry Christmas! 🙂

  8. I loved My Lady Jane so I’m keeping my eye on My Contrary Mary too! Happy holidays!

    • My Lady Jane is definitely my favorite of the bunch! I’m hoping My Contrary Mary is just as good.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting! 🙂

  9. Great list! I love all the historical fiction on here, within which I’ve only read The Invisible Life, but it fits surprisingly well haha. I’m sure you will enjoy it!

  10. The Poldark Saga is excellent. The only book in the series I haven’t read yet is the last one. The show did a fantastic job of adapting the story. I hope you enjoy it!

  11. Ashley @ The Infinite Library says

    I love the Poldark TV series so I tried reading the books but found that they were so similar that I didn’t really feel the urge to keep reading.
    V E Schwab is one of my favourite authors. I liked Addie La Rue but I didn’t fall head over heels in love the way I was hoping to. Vicious and ADSOM are still my faves.

    • I’ve heard so many good things about V.E. Schwab! I’m very curious to try her work.

      Thank you for visiting and commenting! 🙂

  12. Oooh, there are quite a few that would be welcome in our house, as well. My husband loves Bernard Cornwell and I love love love the Tudors.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT this week. Merry Christmas.

    • You’re welcome! I’m very excited about the Tudor book as well, and I’ve really been enjoying Bernard Cornwell’s work. I’m hoping to branch out into his other series beyond The Last Kingdom.

      Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! 🙂

  13. Such a nice variety of books here. I hope you’ll get to read them soon. I really enjoyed The Invisible Life of Addie Larue. Happy Holidays to you!

  14. I hope Santa brings you lots of books this year!

  15. Great list, hope you found some of them under the Christmas tree!
