Top Ten Tuesday - leave me a book Santa!

Monday, December 23, 2013


It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week's topic is Top Ten books I want Santa to leave me.  Soooo since this is from Santa and everything from him is free.... I have to pick EXPENSIVE books!

These are in no particular order:

1.  Madonna: Sex.  I love Madonna... always have.  Since I was a little girl in the 80s.  I remember she had this book come out called Sex.  I wanted it so bad.  I would go by the bookstore and couldn't even look in it because it was in this plastic cover.  To this day I haven't been able to look at this book.. it's hard to find and out of print.   I want this book Santa... please!


2. Last year for Christmas I bought my husband the paperback Harry Potter set.  We had been reading our hardbacks to death.  IF I had any idea there would be a new set our I would've never bought those.  So now I just can't see any reason to buy yet ANOTHER set.  Soooo Santa please bring me these for free!


3.  If Santa could bring me something that I could gift to my husband it would be the Superman Files. It's made to look like a scrapbook.  It has Daily Planet Clippings, and Kryptonian artifacts.  300 pages of Superman fun!



 4.  I just want the entire collections of the book covers that both Barnes and Nobles Leatherbound Classics and Penguins Clothbound Classics!  I mean AMAZING!  The whole Collection.. all of them!!! 

5.  ALL first edition Stephen King books.  Enough said:


6.  Limited Edition Graphic Novel Locke and Key by Joe Hill illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez.  I mean limited edition graphic novels are usually pretty amazing... like this set:


7.  Santa... all I really want is for George RR Martin to PLEASE FRICKEN finish A Song of Ice and Fire.  I mean... is that too much to ask?  So for Christmas I would like book 6... The Winds of Winter.  In fact... I would like to finish off all the series I'm reading so I would like those books too.



You know what... it's late Santa and that's all I can think of right now.  And why get greedy right?????  Please bring me all these gifts.  I promise I will display them for all to see.

    1. It's like art!! Eventually all these editions of the HP books will probably become collection items.

  5. I LOVE the Barnes and Noble classics! And I'm in the same boat…I got the paperback set for Harry Potter two Christmases ago, but I absolutely love the new covers. I may just have to own two sets... Great picks and Merry Christmas :)

    Here's my TTT!

  7. OMG! Your husband is also addicted to HP? That's very very nice to know, Angie. It's rare for me to stumble upon a couple who both read books and it's even rarer to find them enjoying the same books particularly HP. Weeee. A lot of the males I know IRL are more inclined to read Stephen King, George Martin, and comic books.

    And goodness gracious, I really need to start mustering the courage to read GOT you know. It's just that I really hate when there are so many character deaths. Hahahaha.

    Great list, Angie! Have a blissful Christmas!

    1. My husband is a fantasy freak. He loves LOTR and HP and all that jazz. GOT is long. I haven't read books 4 and 5 because he is taking so long writing them. I am sick of him taking all this time!! NOOOOOoooooo!

    1. I didn't get any... but who cares! I can dream right???? I wonder if I could get that Madonna sex book from the interlibrary loan at my library. I am going to give it a shot!

  13. No arguments about anything on this wish list, the Harry Potter and Stephen King sets in particular look promising!
    Just finished reading The Green Mile, great stuff. I'm always amazed how within a page, Stephen King has the narrator's voice established and me as the reader hooked. That Percy Whetmore is one of the more despicable characters I've encountered!

    1. Stephen King blows me away. I love him so much. He was really the first books I read as an adult. I didn't read much through high school and then in college I picked up the Shining and never looked back. Now I just love to read!!
