Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN:
Books I would love Santa to bring me!
My personal nutso commentary on each can be seen below. Can you rant and rave to me why I should already have read these?
THE FALCONER by Elizabeth May | Goodreads | Amazon – I normally don’t get too into historicals – but hey this is historical fantasy! And I’ve heard such great things about it that I really do need to read it. Plus bonus for having an illustrated cover instead of the standard photo. There are more you know reasonable reasons for wanting this book but …ehhh its been awhile since it came out and its been on my wishlist every since and hey…I can’t for the life of me remember what they are right now – so sue me – if you’ve read it go ahead and remind me why it’s so awesome and that I must have it….
TOMORROW THE KILLING by Daniel Polansky | Goodreads | Amazon – I read the first book in this series a few years ago and I didn’t realize that the author had finally put out more! My review of LOW TOWN here. Indeed there are TWO more that I haven’t read yet – oooo nelly belly wouldn’t that be sweet. I’d be just as tickled pink to get TOMORROW THE KILLING and SHE WHO WAITS!
PRINCESS OF THORNS by Stacey Jay | Goodreads | Amazon – Supposedly this is Game of Thrones meets Grimm’s fairytales so how the heck could I possibly want to pass this one up! I neeeds it my precious I needs it!
THE TROPIC OF SERPENTS by Marie Brennan | Goodreads | Audible – I listened to the first one on audio and loved the narration and so of course I would be much happier LISTENING to this one instead of reading. I haven’t written the review yet because technically as I’m writing this post I HAVEN’T finished the audio book yet – but hey details details it will be finished and reviewed very shortly.
THE DARK MIRROR by Juliet Marillier | Goodreads | Audible – A little while ago I read my first Juliet Marillier book DREAMER’S POOL and it was absolutely AMAZING! Now I think I must read all of her books if I can. I definitely want to do them on audio though because I’ve had so much more time for audio lately and the baby is due in a few months and audio will probably be easier. I’d actually love to have any of her first books on her other series. HEART’S BLOOD, or SHADOWFELL, or WILDWOOD DANCING or WOLFSKIN. I already purchased DAUGHTER OF THE FOREST today on audio, so the rest of those books in audio woulda be great also lol.
SHADOW SCALE by Rachel Hartman | Goodreads | Amazon – I read and LOVED Seraphina and heck I would be happy with this one as a print or an audio. I know I likely won’t be able to snag it for review so buys it I must! Have you read it yet? If you haven’t and love YA and dragons you totally should *whips you till you read it* My review of SERAPHINA
HEIR OF FIRE by Sarah J. Maas | Goodreads | Amazon – So technically I haven’t even read THRONE OF GLASS ….BUT I’m already collecting them all in hardback and I’m pretty sure I’ll love them. So I need this right? Yes of course I need it….pay no attention to my weird desire to own all the books in hardback when I haven’t even started the first book. Might I kick myself for this later…I have a few times on other series – so I better not be wrong about this one…please please precious don’t be wrong.
DEALING WITH DRAGONS by Patricia C. Wrede | Goodreads | Amazon – Again – on this one I’ve heard nothing but good things from all sorts of my fantasy bloggy friends and I feel like I’m the last one here to the party. Can you just LOOK at that cover – doesn’t it look fun? I say it looks fun – SAY IT LOOKS FUN YOU FIENDS!!
MAPLECROFT by Cherie Priest | Goodreads | Amazon or Audible – I wanted to read this when it came out but never got around to it and a copy never arrived. I would totally love to listen to it on audio because the narration sounds fabulous!!
SURPRISE ME WITH THE PERFECT BOOK SFF BOOK I HAVEN’T READ YET!! by ? | – So yeah I guess I own way too many books as it is – but you know one can never own enough fantasy and urban fantasy or science fiction because I NEED all these books right at the tips of my fingers to read at my leisure whenever the mood strikes me. IS there something I haven’t read!? Plenty – this is my wishlist on Goodreads.
