The #TopTenTuesday theme this week is the top ten books I wouldn’t mind Santa leaving under the tree this year. I love books under the tree. In fact, I like books just about anywhere. Tree like stacks all over the house also sounds good.
And, I love nothing more than to gift books.
Or to write posts about giving books. Look here for picture book ideas to gift (by publication year): 2013, 2014, 2015. Shopping for new parents and grandparents? I have lists for that too! Fiction or nonfiction versions actually.
But what books would I currently love to receive? I stuck with a picture book theme. Some of these I have read. Some, I know, from other reviews, that I need to. All of them, I covet.
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and Bookish.

Which books do you want to receive this holiday season?
Aw! Cute looking books as usual. I’m really intrigued by the Eoin Colfer book. 🙂
Me too. I have skimmed through it and it seems wonderful.
Such a lovely list. Cute covers!
Picture books are pretty amazing!
These look beautiful. I want to buy them all (umm, completely for my daughter, not for me, obviously…).
I am the picture book lover in my home! Thankful that I have a classroom of children to read them to!
These sound adorable. And the covers are too cute. Hope you get some of these 🙂
Happy Tuesday & Happy Reading!
And happy reading to you!
Although I’ve finally read it, I would love to receive The Only Child, a recent love. Wishing you a lot of books under your tree, Carrie. No one should have to pick just one, right?
That title is on my radar Linda. The cover looks gorgeous.
What a lovely wishlist. I love both gifting and receiving books – one of the many wonderful things about books is how easy it is to pass on the experience by donating your pre-loved books to charity shops, libraries, neighbors or friends, giving old books new life. The gift that just keeps on giving. 🙂
Absolutely! I feel like books are constantly moving through my hands. Sometimes they live with me and other times, on they go!
Aww, I want to read Mother Bruce, it looks cute. I definitely agree with book stacks everywhere! That would be wonderful. ❤
Books make the holidays amazing for me!
I’m curious about “The Tea Party in the Woods”. Looks interesting.
It is stunning! I convinced a Dad in a bookstore to buy it for his daughter yesterday. Such a beautiful book.
These look so so cute. The Tea Party in the Woods sounds especially promising. Merry Christmas.
A beautiful book to gift!
gorgeous books!! My TTT
