Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree!!



Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.


I've chosen a nice mix of nonfiction and fiction books for my list for Santa Claus to bring me!

1. Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi
2. Bird Box by Josh Malerman
3. The Romanovs: 1613-1918 by Simon Sebag Montefiore 

4. Circular Knitting Workshop: Essential Techniques to Master Knitting in the Round by Margaret Radcliffe
5. The Body Reader by Anne Frasier
6. The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey
7. Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly
8. The Memory Illusion: Why You May Not Be Who You Think You Are by Julia Shaw
9. The Selkie Sorceress by Sophie Moss
10. The Selkie Enchantress by Sophie Moss

I ended up receiving the above books that have lines through them from Santa!

    1. Funny, but I've been craving a few rock bios myself.... But find bios and memoirs can be hit or miss on how much I like them. Thanks for stopping by. Happy holidays to you!!

  11. These are all newbies to me, though Sophie's books certainly SOUND interesting. So captivating by the title alone. :) Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland.

  15. Nice, well-varied list! I'd love to read Hidden Figures; both the Sophie Moss books are on my Kindle (but as yet unread); and I really need that knitting-in-the-round book. I mean, I alreayd knit socks and hats and so on, and can do so either on DPNs or using the 2-circular-needles method, but I'd like some hints on things like making stripes line up without an obvious jog.
