The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's theme is the Top Ten : Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree This Year
What book-lover doesn't fall asleep on Christmas Eve with visions of books dancing in their heads?
So, here are the books I'd be happy to find under the tree this year!
02. Russian Roulette: The Story of an Assassin by Anthony Horowitz - It's the last book I need to complete the Alex Rider book series, so I need it (in the matching cover design!)
03. The Complete Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer - I don't own any of them (at least physical copies) and I haven't read the last one at all! This needs to be remedied.
04. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster -I love this book, and it's a great learning tool. Knowledge is power!
06. Jane Austen: The Complete Works: Classic Hardcovers - Too expensive for me to actually buy when I already have hardcover versions of pretty much all of these books individually, but so very pretty.
07. The Infernal Devices books 2 & 3 by Cassandra Clare - I've read the second book, but only have the ebook. I haven't gotten around to the third book yet, but considering that I love the series and already own one book, I definitely want the set.
08. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: Illustrated Edition -Pricey for a single book, but more affordable, though slightly less awesome, than the Hufflepuff set.
09. Ultimate Spider-Man Omnibus Volume One -I love hardcovers (if you haven't noticed) and I also love Ultimate Spider-Man (at least until they murdered him and caused me permanent emotional scarring) so this would be great to have. I can continue to live in denial as long as I don't own the last few issues, which means I'd be safe here as this only goes up to the 39th issue. I'd love them up until the last story arc, but only volume one is currently out. It's even leather-bound! This is one classy comic book.
10. Cool Bookshelves -Not exactly a book, but I need to put my spoils somewhere! And the shelves I already have are just about ready to buckle. But do crazy awesome bookshelves really need an explanation?
