Top Ten Tuesday // Books I’m hoping to find under the Christmas tree (tomorrow!)

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s theme is:

December 24: Books I Hope to Find Under My Tree

I’ve asked for a few (*cough* quite a few) books for Christmas this year, so I’m hopeful that I might get to unwrap at least one or two from this list tomorrow.

I’m 99.9999% sure my Mum has got me this for Christmas because I was in the shop with her when she picked it up.

So fingers crossed it will be there for me to unwrap on Christmas Day!


The Starless SeaThe Starless Sea

I met up with my family in Leeds last month and my Grandma and Aunt set me loose in Waterstones with the instruction ‘choose what you’d like for Christmas’.

I asked my aunt if she’d mind getting me the Waterstone’s special edition of The Starless Sea and she was 110% happy to.

So I’m relatively certain that it’s going to be waiting for me on Christmas morning.

Again, my Grandma asked me to pick what I’d like from her for Christmas, so I have a sneaking suspicion that this is her gift to me.




43822758The Lady Rogue 

My Aunt asked for a few book suggestions to get me for Christmas and this was one of them. I’ve been dying to read this for months, so I’m crossing my fingers that I might get to unwrap it soon.

Similar to The Lady Rogue, this was also on the list of potential books I gave my aunt.

I loved Empire of Sand when I read it last year, so I’d be very happy to receive this as a present.


41473872I Wish You All The Best

This was the third book on the list (of three) that I gave my Aunt.

I have no idea whether she’s got me this one or one of the other two above,  but it’ll be an exciting surprise on Christmas Day.



41197399. sy475 The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling

I haven’t actually asked for this from anyone, so I don’t expect to receive it, but it’s on my WL so it would be an AMAZING surprise if one of my friends had got it for me.




Crooked Kingdom Collector’s Edition

I was lucky enough to get a copy of the Six of Crows Collector’s Edition last year, so I’d love to receive the CK Collector’s Edition this year.

They match so beautifully and I love the sprayed edges.

Other Words for Smoke

This is another book that I’ve heard great things about but haven’t had a chance to pick up yet. Who knows, maybe it’ll be waiting for me under the tree.




Sorcery of Thorns

I read this earlier in 2019 on audio and loved it. So although I haven’t asked for a copy, I’d be thrilled if one turned up on Christmas day.




Which books are you hoping to receive on Christmas day (if you celebrate)? 

Until next time,KateNEW

  1. The Collectors Edition of Crooked Kingdom looks divine. I definitely wouldn’t mind waking up to that book. Hope you have a lovely Christmas. 😀
