TOP TEN BOOKS I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving

  1. When Marnie Was There by Joan G Robinson: So I can read the book that inspired the Studio Ghilbli film.

2. Story’s End by Marissa Burt: So I know how the story ends!

3. Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis: I’ve heard it’s good.

4. The Fall of Arthur by J. R. R. Tolkien: It’s embarrassing that I don’t own this.

5. La catedral del mar by Ildefonso Falcones: I’ve never seen it in a store.

6. Leepike Ridge by N. D. Wilson: I’m a huge fan of his work, so I need to read this one.

7. The Mirk and Midnight Hour by Jane Nickerson: I love retold fairytales that are also historical fiction.

8. The Year of Shadows by Claire Legrand: Looks like my type of book!

9. Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel: Just because it’s history doesn’t mean I can’t tell myself I don’t know how the story will end.

10. Shadows of the Workhouse by Jennifer Worth: Continuing on with the Call the Midwife trilogy.

    La catedral del mar, The Fall of Arthur, and Bring Up the Bodies (haha so true what you said about it–we know the outcome but the build-up of suspense and drama is excellent) are such excellent books ❤ I hope you find all of these books under your tree later this week! Merry Christmas 🙂

    Bring Up the Bodies is awesome — and even knowing the history, I was still on the edge of my seat! I’d really like to read The Mirk and Midnight Hour as well. I hope you get good gifts this year!

      Yeah, money is an issue when it comes to that sort of thing.

      I’m a huge N. D. Wilson fan, so I’m looking forward to the book he has coming out next year, but I am wondering when he’s going to finish the Ashtown Burials series!

    *GASP* I knew that other Studio Ghibli movies were based off of books but When Marnie was There is a BOOK!? How did I not know this? That movie looks like it has all of the feelings 😦 it makes me want to cry just seeing that trailer.
    I hope you get these books 🙂
