Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me
-- Originally created by The Broke and Bookish
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia
I really want to read this before the movie comes out - I've heard so many good things about this book and just want to see if it's all it's hyped up to be.
A Million Suns by Beth Revis
Across the Universe, the first book in this series was an alright book, but the premise of it was very promising. I want to see how this series progresses to see whether I'm actually going to change my mind on what I thought of the negative aspects of the first book.
Legend by Marie Lu
This has been on my to be read pile for a little while so if I could get around to getting and reading this book it would be absolutely fantastic. Again, I have heard this book is really good so want to jump on the band wagon as you might say.
His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman
I first read 'The Northern Lights' or as you Americans like to call it, 'The Golden Compass' ages ago and then I remember starting the second book, but I don't remember finishing it. Due to the fact that this was ages ago, a little while ago I re-read the first book in preparation for the second book and I relived how amazing the first book was so I am thoroughly excited to read the rest of the series. At home we have the 3 book in 1 book but I don't like that kind of format and refuse to carry such a massive massive book around with me to work that I really want them as separate books.
Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan
I have read the first book and enjoyed it immensely. I thought, because it's kind of a children's book, that it would be in fact childish but the premise of the book is so interesting, and in all the fantasy elements you also learn a bit of history in with it. It's also an all rounder book as well which is a plus filled with action and adventure to boot. I originally got the first book out of the library but I would like to own the collection myself.
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Again, like 'Legend' this has been on my to be read list for a very long time now so I think it's due a buy and a read.
Eon by Alison Goodman

Gone Series by Michael Grant
I have got and read the first two books, and I am in love with this series - and the second book didn't fall to what I like to call, 'Second Book Syndrome' so I'm mega stoked to read the rest of these. I also love the dark covers that are available with the brightly coloured front font and page edges - they do look awesome on my book shelf might I add.
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
A lot of my book tend to be from books I've read the first in the series, and this is yet another one - so excited to read this. It better not go into the 'Second Book Syndrome' category that Insurgent did, or I'm going to be ridiculously angry.
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
An ARC of Scarlet would be amazing. Out of all the books to be released in 2013 this is one I would pay to have before it's released - ergh, February is too far away!
