Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.

Today’s Top 10: Books I Hope Santa Brings This Year
These are all books that are already published that I want to read in 2023. Nobody buys me books because they can’t figure out if I’ve read one or not. So, I get gift cards instead, and here is a list of books I want to purchase!
1. Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver. I’ve already started this and so far it’s amazing!
2. Apple Never Fall by Liane Moriarty. I’ve been wanting to read this one for a while.
3. Tomorrow, Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin. I’ve read so many glowing reviews for this book.
4. The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman. I want to start this series soon.
5. Broken (in the best possible way) by Jenny Lawson. EVERYONE seems to love this one.
6. Before I Let Go by Kennedy Ryan. Again, the reviews were very good, and I love an emotional book.
7. The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams. This is another series that I want to read. I’ve seem many great review and I love the premise of the series.
8. The Nightingale by Kirstin Hannah. Kristin Hanna’s books are long and very detailed, but they always make me think and they are the books that I remember for a long time after I’ve read them.
9. Becoming by Michelle Obama. Again, lots of great reviews.
10. Remarkably Great Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt. Again, it looks good and I’ve seen many wonderful reviews.
Do any of these books look good to you? What books did you get for the holidays?
This is a great list, Wendy! Becoming is on my wishlist too. I hope Santa is good to you! 🙂
I need to read Demon Copperhead and I have the Nightingale on my shelves also. My daughter told me the same thing, it’s hard to figure out what books to buy me because she won’t know if I read it already lol.
I loved Becoming. Broken is on my TBR list too. I’ve read Jenny Lawson’s other books and thought they were funny. I hope you find all these under your tree!
Love the books on your list! I have been meaning to read Kristin Hannah for a while as well 🙂 and yet to read Becoming too…
Happy holidays and hoping your wishes come true
I need to start the Bromance Book Club series, I think I bought the first one a couple weeks ago too. Hope you get all that you want!
I hope that you find one or two of these under your tree this year! May your holidays be merry and bright!
Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!
The Thursday Murder Club and Remarkably Beautiful Creatures are both in my top five. I hope you get them!
Great list! Apples Never Fall was SO good. I hope you get all your bookish wishes.
Interesting list. The only one on my list so far is The Bromance Club.
I plan to get Nightingale next year. I hope you get these books and have lovely holidays with amazing reads.
What a great list. I have the Thursday Murder Club but I haven’t read it yet, but my Mum has and she said its really good 😊
That’s great that your mother enjoyed it!
Broken is probably my least favorite of Jenny Lawson’s books but I hope you have a better experience with it then I did. So many great books on this list! I hope you enjoy Thursday Murder Club and Apples Never Fall (the audio is great if you can get it) as much as I did!
Oh, thanks for the tip on getting Apples on audio! I’ll definitely do that.
Yes! The Thursday Murder Club series is soooo good! I even bough the physical copies for my shelf I love it so much.
Wow, that’s so good to hear, Rachel!
I’ve read The Thursday Murder Club and enjoyed the characters so much. I want to read the next two. I hope your Christmas wishes are fulfilled!
Thank you, Linda! I hope you get all your wishes too.
Great list , Wendy🙂 I loved the second Thursday Murder Club book and want to catch up with the first too. Like you, I’d love to read Tomorriw, Tommorow and Tomorrow and Becoming which has been on my wishlist a long time now.
I’m glad to hear you enjoyed the second murder club book! I just know I’m going to like them
Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow has such an eye-catching cover, and the synopsis is interesting.
I’ve heard such great things about it.
What a great list! I’ve found several that I’d like to add to my TBR too like Demon Copperhead, Tomorrow, The Thursday Murder Club and The Nightingale. I hope you enjoy Becoming, it was such a lovely read!
I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed Becoming! I can’t wait to get to it.
I loved all The Bromance Book Club books, and Remarkably Bright Creatures. I know you aren’t big on audiobooks, but I listened to Becoming and Michelle Obama narrated it and it was excellent. I hope you get some of these under your tree, or as Carol says, Amazon gift cards will work. Enjoy whatever you get, Wendy.
Thank you, Carla! I will listen to Becoming. I find memoirs are best on audiobook.
It’s safer for my family to give me gift cards too. Although my husband does have access to my wish list and does actually use it from time to time> 🙂 I hope you receive or are able to use a gift card or two to get your hands on some of these, Wendy! I really enjoyed Becoming and The Bromance Book Club.
What a wonderful husband!
These are really great picks! Becoming is on our list!
I hope we all enjoy Becoming! My sister highly recommended it to me.
I’ve had The Nightingale on my list for a while. I must get to it, i love Kristin Hannah’s books.
Yes, I love her books too.
We hope Santa brings all the books on your list!!
Thank you! I hope you both have a happy holiday
The Nightingale was truly unforgettable. Tough at times but so worth it. And Before I Let Go is definitely one of my top favorites this year. Hope you nab some of these with your gift cards!
Thank you, Tanya. I’m glad you liked And Before I Let Go, and The Nightingale, now I’m even more excited to get them and read them
Gift cards for books are the best! I want to read Tomorrow, Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, too. 😀
I hope we both get a chance to read Tomorrow, Tomorrow, and Tomorow.
I’ve read 3, 8, 9, and 10 and really liked all of them. I have Thurs Murder Club on my list too and have the library book for Demon Copperhead sitting on my desk to read next. What a great list – and so smart to get gift cards. My family is in the same boat. Have a very Happy Holidays Wendy!

Thank you, Terri. Deamon Copperhead is a hefty book, but I’ve heard it’s wonderful
I loved 7,8, and 9. I hope you get these and the rest of them!
Thank you, Deanna!
I hope you get enough gift cards to buy all of these!
Thank you, Kristi
I think you will enjoy Becoming by Michelle Obama. It was really good. My MIL always asks for a Christmas list, so she knows exactly what books to buy!
I’m glad you enjoyed Becoming. I really want to listen to it soon.
Such a great selection! I’ve read and loved Remarkably Bright Creatures, The Nightingale, The Thursday Murder Club and Broken of these. I’m hoping to finally read The Bromance Book Club some time soon as well.
You’ve probably one of the ones who convinced me to finally read them!
Tomorrow, Tomorrow and Tomorrow does look great! The Bromance Book Club series is one of my favorites.
I’m glad to hear you enjoyed The Bromance series.
These are some very wonderful choices and lot of books that I loved. I hardly get books from family either but sometimes I’ll bug my husband for a couple! Merry Christmas!!
Thank you, Leslie!
I hope you’ll be able to buy some of these! 🙂
I think I will end up buying most of these!
Wonderful choices Wendy! I hope you get them all!🎄🎄📚📚💜
Thank you, Susan
I hope you get enough gift cards to get quite a few of these! Merry Christmas, Wendy!!
Thank you, Cindy! I hope you have a Merry Christmas too.
So many good choices, I hope you get many of them.
Thank you, Rae!
Excellent choices, especially Tomorrow x3. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about it!
Thank you, Tessa. I need to read Tomorrow x3 soon!
Some great books on this list! I almost never get books for Christmas these days, but I’ll probably get some gift cards I can use for a bookish shopping spree!
That way you can get the books you really want!
I’ve trained my entire family to gift me kindle cards! 🙌 Merry Christmas! 🎄
That’s an excellent idea!
