Top Ten Tuesday (8): Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week we are listing:

Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings

1. The Man in the Iron Mask by Alexandre Dumas: I started reading the Musketeers series about seven years ago and I plan on finishing it!

2. The Mysterious Benedict Society: Mr. Benedict’s Book of Perplexing Puzzles, Elusive Enigmas, and Curious Conundrums by Trenton Lee Stewart: I fell in love with the cleverness of the Mysterious Benedict Society series and so I can’t help but want to read the companion book and match my wits against those of Mr. Benedict!

3. Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George: The cover is gorgeous and the plot seems incredibly imaginative.

4. Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card: I read Ender’s Game for the first time this year and I regret all the time that passed without my knowing about the beauty of that story. I’d really like to read the entire series.

5. Past Watchful Dragons by Walter Hooper: No Christmas list is complete without something related to C. S. Lewis.

6. A True Princess by Diane Zahler: I enjoyed Zahler’s retelling of “The Twelve Dancing Princesses” and “The Princess and the Pea” has always been one of my favorite fairy tales, so this seemed an obvious choice!

7. The Man Who Knew Too Much by G. K. Chesterton: Mysteries and Chesterton.  Could it get any better?

8. The Dragon’s Tooth (Ashtown Burials #1) by N. D. Wilson: Wilson’s 100 Cupboards series drew me into a wonderful fantasy world; I expect this series to do the same.

9. Pathfinder by Orson Scott Card: What can I say?  I really want to read more books by Card.

10. Sons of Arthur, Children of Lincoln: Welsh Writing from the American Civil War by Jerry Hunter: As far as I can tell, this book addresses an aspect of the Civil War previously neglected: the Welsh-American experience.
