Top Ten Tuesday Thirty One

Ten Books I wouldn't mind Santa leaving under my tree this year

Top ten tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.  Once again, I was quite excited for this week's topic, as there are so many books on my bookish wishlist.  But nonetheless, I managed to pick ten of the books at the top of that list, and so, without any further ado, here they are - enjoy! 


1) Seige and Storm by Leigh Bardugo - After recently reading the first book in the Grisha series, Shadow and Bone, I am insanely excited to continue on, and so I certainly wouldn't mind getting this for Christmas.  
*
2) Just One Day by Gayle Forman - I've heard so many good things about this book, not to mention that it sounds exactly like my type of book, so it had to make the list. 
  *
3) The Mortal Instruments: City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare -Another sequel that I can't wait to get round to, especially as I can now see the end in sight with this series.  I can't wait to get back to the world and characters and just find out what happens. 
 *
4) Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs - So many people have been raving about this book and, added to the fact that this book includes creepy pictures and sounds amazing anyway, I'm very tempted to pick it up sometime soon.  
*
5) Mosquitoland by David Arnold - This was actually on my most anticipated books of 2015 TTT last year, and yet I never got round to actually getting it, so I'd be pretty happy for Santa to leave this.  
*
6) The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson - This one is quite a recent discovery for me, but one that I am still eager to read.  Not only does the sound of someone recreating the Jack the Ripper murders entice me, but she is also someone I have been meaning to check out since I read her story in Let It Snow a few years ago, so I seriously should pick this one up soon.  
*
7) Crystal Kingdom by Amanda Hocking - After finished the second book in this series, Ice Kissed, literally a number of days ago, I have already been anticipating picking the final one up very soon - I just need to know what happens! 
*
8) Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard - This was likely one of the biggest YA books of the year, with so many people talking about it after it was released.  Despite hearing mixed things about it, I still really want to see what all the hype was about and give it a go for myself some time soon.  
*
9) The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd - Another I have known, and wanted to read, for a while now, but have for some reason not picked it up yet.  The synopsis just drew me straight in, and I can't wait to see if it's as good as I hope it to be.  
*
10) Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young - Finally, this one is actually a repeat from last years list, but another I still not got round to picking up.  I love Cat Patrick's books, and so can't understand why I still haven't read this.
