Top Ten Tuesday | Books I Hope Santa Brings

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature that highlights ten books that all relate to a certain topic and is  hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. 

This Weeks Topic Is...

Books I Hope Santa Brings and I've actually only included five books this week as I don't tend to ask for particular books for Christmas, I just ask for Waterstones gift cards and buy them myself. I am getting one book off my dad that I know of but the others are books that i'm highly considering buying with my vouchers after Christmas. 

Middlegame by Seanan McGuire

Why is this book so expensive?? Everytime I think about buying this book, it's only being sold for around £20 or more which is more then I would normally spend on a book. It's frustrating because it's one that I've wanted to get to for ages but I really want a physical copy and not an ebook version. I may just have to bite the bullet at some point and splurge on it, which is why it's a good thing that I always get gift cards for Christmas!

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett (MinaLima Edition)    

This is the one book that I know for certain I'm getting for Christmas! For the past year or so I've been asking for different books in these gorgeous interactive editions. So far I have The Little Mermaid & Other Stories and Alice in Wonderland, so The Secret Garden was next on my list to own. I just love these editions, the illustrations are stunning and they're truly works of art. I'm slowly building my way up to owning the entire collection.    

The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune 

All I hear about is how lovely and heartwarming this story is but similarly to Middlegame, the editions available are always just slightly out of my price range at the minute. It's pretty high on my priority list though and so I'm hoping to finally own a copy of it by the time 2021 rolls around. I really think I'm going to love this book and I really can't wait to dive in. 

Disney Book of Maps: A Guide to the Magical Worlds of Disney and Pixar

These are the types of book that I generally receive for Christmas when I am gifted books. I really like these types of reference books or anything particularly quirky with illustrations and a look into how something is done or made. I, of course, love Disney so much and especially the worlds the films are set in so I think this could be a really fun book to flick through on occasion. 

Kiki's Delivery Service by Eiko Kadono   

I watched the Ghibli movie for the first time this year and just adored it and I saw that this super cute edition of the book had been published this year and therefore immediately added it to my wishlist. If the film is anything to go by, I'm sure this will be a charming and magical read plus I'm hoping for some of the classic snark from Jiji!   

Have you read any of these? Which books are you hoping to find under the tree this year? Leave a comment or link your own Top Ten Tuesday's for me to check out! Happy Reading!
