Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing Me

Posted December 24, 2013 by Bonnie in Top Ten Tuesday / 8 Comments


Oh books. You can never have too many… although my bowing bookshelves clearly tell a different story.

One of the types of books I most love owning are anthologies and short story collections. I like to be able to take my time and savor them, flip through and skip around and I’ve never been able to read them in their entirety. Here are a few I’d love to own:


Wastelands: Stories of the ApocalypseRags & Bones: New Twists on Timeless TalesDangerous WomenThe Stories of Vladimir NabokovI Hate to See That Evening Sun Go Down: Collected Stories

Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse by John Joseph Adams
Rags & Bones: New Twists on Timeless Tales by Melissa Marr
Dangerous Women by George R.R. Martin
The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov by Vladimir Nabokov
I Hate to See That Evening Sun Go Down: Collected Stories by William Gay


And these are just a few others I wouldn’t mind owning… just a few.

I’m sorry. I couldn’t make up my mind.

  1. Ooh, Wastelands sounds like it would be right up my alley! I actually have a copy of The Child Thief — I love the illustrations, although I haven’t actually read it yet. Midwinterblood is another one that I bought this past year and still haven’t read, although I’m really determined to finally make time for it! You have so many great looking books here — now I need to explore them all!

  2. Bonnie! Did you get any of the books on your wishlist? I think I may have a copy of YEAR OF SHADOWS I can send you–and I also want to send you SCOWLER by Daniel Kraus, because it’s gruesome and intense and horrible and I think you’d like it. šŸ˜€

    • I DIDN’T. Oh woe is me. lol
      Oooh, gruesome and intense? Will have to check it out now. That’s the author of Rotters, which I haven’t read but have been meaning to.
