Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

This week's Top Ten from The Broke and the Bookish asks for the Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me. These are all on my wishlist, especially books from the Penguin Clothbound Classics collection and the Puffin Classics collection. They are just beautiful!

  1. Looking forward to Secret Keeper for sure; hope Santa reads your list (he's very busy you know) LOL

  2. That Stardust edition has been in a lot of Santa wish-lists, and deservedly - so lovely! If we're dreaming high, I'd love to actually get my own Ideal Bookshelf illustration by La Force!

  3. Diane - Even if Santa doesn't get to my list, maybe the Huz will!

    Alex - I'm so with you on that one. I would love to have my favorite books illustrated by La Force. That would be incredible! I think Stardust is probably the one I'm lusting after the most.

  4. I definitely wouldn't mind getting the new edition of Stardust either!

  5. Instructions looks absolutely beautiful! I also loved The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland -- ask Santa (or hubz) for the sequel to that one that just came out to get a pair of them! :D

  6. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making is soooo good!!! (:

  7. +JMJ+

    There are lots of great children's classics here! Are you, like Jenners says, going for a theme? ;-)

  8. Ana - I've been meaning to re-read it and that edition is so tempting.

    Nikki - Will do! That one looks wonderful too. I attended a talk Gaiman gave a couple years ago and he read all of Instructions aloud, it was just lovely.

    Alouette - Oh good! I keep hearing great things.

    Jenners - Only that I love the Penguin/Puffin books and I can't ever justify buying them for myself, it's not some hint at something else, I promise!

    Enbrethiliel - Oh good lord, I didn't even think of that. No, definitely not planning for some kid-related surprise, I just love that series of books!
