Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree | Blogmas Day 20

Posted December 20, 2016 by Jordann @thebookbloglife in blogmas, book thoughts, gift guides / 4 Comments

I haven’t really asked for anything this Christmas, apart from my Erin Condren planner which my mum bought for me. I definitely haven’t asked for books from Santa or anyone, I need to sort through my shelves and see what I need to buy and what I need to get rid off. Which by the way is a huge undertaking.

But the books I want Santa to leave for me? Hmm, lemme have a look at the ever-growing list.

The Full Set of the Fairyland series

This book starts off with The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making and I have never gotten around to buying the rest of them. Please Santa either bring them to me or put them super cheap on amazon!

The Wicked Will Rise

I have been waiting so long for this book, I want it in paperback so it matches the other books on my shelves. Bookish OCD and all that. I love this series and desperately want to find out how it ends.

Finnikin of the Rock

This has been on my list to buy for so long I almost forgot I had it on there. Booktube is to blame for this one. The only problem is I would have to buy it online, and that’s effort, so Santa please?

The Serpent King

The Serpent King has been on my peripheral. It makes it onto my books I want Santa to bring because I think I would really love it if only I took the time to actually buy the damn thing. My only hope is Santa bringing me the books.


Oh please let this one find its way onto my bookshelves. I’ve wanted it for oh so long. Well we shall see. It might find its way into my basket when we hit Dublin in a couple of days. I can be my own Santa right?


Yes I know, super late on the bandwagon on this one. I have meant to pick it up, promise. Just haven’t had a chance or saw other books that I was way more interested in. Well now I feel bad and I would quite like to read it right now.

The Archived

I love V. E Schwab’s work. I have never read this series, and I can’t see me hating it? That would make no sense… would it? Well Santa, I want to read them now. I want to say with all certainty that I have read all her work and loved it. Thanks.

All of Brandon Sanderson’s books

Yes I mean all of them. I want them all and I want them now. Santa please… I promise to cut down my book buying next year if only you would do this for me! I love this series and his writing, GIVE ME THEM ALL.


This book is beautiful and I just know that it would look perfect on my shelf, that it would be a perfect addition to the already massive growing number of unread books. BUT I need it. I do really, Santa, are you listening?

The Wrath and the Dawn

Yes this is another pretty book, no don’t judge me. I enjoy pretty books. I like the way it looks, plus it has amazing reviews. That means I have to have it right? Come on, I have to have it. SAAAANTA.

I think I kind of lost my mind there for a moment. Do you have any of these books on your Christmas list? Let me know what you think of them!

    I agree with wanting all of Brandon Sandersons books. I love his writing style and having his entire bibliography would be awesome. I can’t promise I’d cut down on my book buying though if that wish came true, lol.

      Well we all make wild promises in order to get what we want. PLUS the UK versions are stunning!! I could try and cut down my book buying. It might not be successful but who knows.

      It’s one that’s been on my peripheral. I’ve heard mixed things though, but it’s one that I wanna check out for myself. I’m heading to Dublin in a couple of days so it might be a good shout to grab it over there!
