Today's Topic: Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings!
  1. Wither by Lauren DeStefano - I was intrigued by the cover and has always been intrigued by the dystopia genre. I would love to read this first before deciding if I'll read the genre or not. :)
  2. Bumped by Megan McCafferty - Another book that I want that I'll learn for DAC. 
  3. Harry Potter Boxset by J.K Rowling - Well . .. .. . Uhhhm. I haven't read a single HP book. You may be thinking, "What?? You haven't read it yet?" yeah I haven't and I've been wanting to read but didn't get a chance to buy a copy. Hehe.
  4. LOTR by J.R.R Tolkien - This is a special request by my partner and her brother. Since I've been wanting to read the series as well, might as well put it in my list. I know that they'll be the one reading this first.
  5. Matched by Ally Condie - There are only a few books that catches my attention, and Matched was one of them. I actually was suppose to buy this a week ago but decided to wait until next year since I bought a lot of books this December.
  6. City Of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare - I haven't read the series yet, but I am planning to buy me a copy plus this lovely to be release in 2011. Some of you might know that I love reading series so I just have to get me a copy of the Mortal Instrument series.
  7. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho *signed* - another request not for me but for my partner. She doesn't like reading books much but when she read The Alchemist, she can't stop talking about it and I think a leather hardbound, signed copy is the perfect gift for her. *wishing for a miracle* Lol. I would even beg and stalked to get one. *kidding*
  8. Frank: The Voice by James Kaplan - I grew up listening to my father's choice in music. Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, etc., and I always love them. So this is a must for me.
  9. Narnia Boxset by C.S Lewis - I must. No explanation needed. Hehe.
  10. Any book that talks about the apocalypse and the four horsemen - I know that this is an unusual choice but I was drawn to the topic and can't seem to find the appropriate book. I don't want the fiction stuff. I want the actual book that talks about the topic. Hmm. Any suggestions??
I am a person who doesn't like lists since I always forget them so this is an effort for me and a way to help me remember things or make my book related stuff organized at some point. :) I know somewhere in my mind, I would want a different book in the list but I just can't dig deep. I am lost in my own head, sometimes a plus but definitely a downer. Tsk.
