Top Ten Books I'd Like From Santa

 

 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back to The Broke and the Bookish so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is Top Ten Books (or book items) I'd like to see under the tree.  Rather than just books I'm including stuff I'd like, whether books or something else. There's a lot of bookish stuff out there, and I have a tendency to find stuff I *cough* want when shopping but of course I wouldn't buy for me at Christmas time. Would I?? 


So here's the stuff I'd love to see under the tree. Which I will probably just end up buying myself sometime next year lol. 

The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones

Star Wars Inspired Mos Eisley Cantina Tatooine Etched Pint Glass Etched Glassware Funny Star Wars No droids Star Wars Etched pint glass

Some wall art from Rock Paper Books. 

The Three Musketeers



And BOOKS from Rock Paper Books- they do classics with updated, modernistic cover art. 

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

And since I'm a fan of Rock Paper Books as a bonus I'm including a selection of their covers.

  6. Those really are some awesome redesigned book covers. I especially like the Sherlock one. Not sure why. Maybe the colors and interesting angle?

    1. Aren't they cool? The Sherlock one is one of my favorites as well, I think because of the moon and the angle or slant of the image. It just has that vibe. :)

  8. Those covers are awesome! And I have the The World of Ice and Fire (which Santa brought me some Christmas past) that I still need to read, but just having it on my shelf helps keep me calm. Hope Santa is kind (and while he's picking up the Peter Pan bookmarks and Green Dragon glasses, I'll throw in my order too). ;)

    1. Ooh I want the World of Ice and Fire and I'm not sure why I haven't bought it yet?? I must rectify that. I want that bookmark too (did you know they're like a ten pack?) and the glasses too.

      Delete
  9. OMG I need that cover of Sleepy Hollow. I love the premise of that tale much better than I did the actual story, but I do love all the retellings and spinoffs. I'm also really liking those glasses. Hey, I'm all for buying yourself some gifts anyway!

  15. I had never heard of that card game before but it is SO up my alley! It's a shame I don't have more friends who play card games (or that there aren't more 2 player games/my boyfriend actually played them. But I could always FORCE him to if I had the right game >:D

    ReplyDelete

    1. I want that game so bad but yeah I'm not sure who I would play it with either! I don't know too many people anymore who play card games much. I still want it though! Yeah make the boyfriend play. :P

  16. Your list is everything! Kudos to book number one that is in my Kindle baby! Although he could release the long awaited for GOT novel that would be a true Christmas miracle LOL
    I just started collecting the FK's OMG I think my husband is going to ban me from the house if I buy anymore! Especially when he heard my plan is to get all of the Harry Potter ones and all of the walking dead ones and the Star Wars ones and the Harry Potter Hogwarts train FK lol

    1. Thanks! Yes the long awaited Winds of Winter would be nice. But The World of Ice and Fire looks good too. Glad you got it.

      There are so many Funkos! I think the trick is to get HIM into them, then it can be like a joint purchase ha ha.

  17. Great list! I love the bookish stuff I tend to buy that stuff less for myself as well! I love the Peter Pan bookmark that is really nice!!

    1. Isn't that cool? I need that bookmark- and I think if you buy it you get like a bunch all with the different artwork they do, for like $10. If I remember right...

  18. What a fun list, Greg! I love the Peter Pan bookmark especially.

  22. I gave my brother that Game of Thrones book! I have to admit I was tempted to keep it to myself! Thanks for visiting my TTT

    ReplyDelete
  23. I LOVE the Star Wars Cantina glass! I would like the GoT book too but would rather have the NEW book George is supposed to be writing! My friends and family know to just buy me anything Harry Potter related and I will be happy. Merry Christmas!

  24. I really like that Peter Pan bookmark. It's so lovely. Happy holidays!

  25. OhMyGoodness! That wall art is amazing as are Rock Paper Books book covers. I want (way too) many of them. :) Thanks for sharing, Greg - and for visiting Finding Wonderland.

  26. World of Ice and Fire was a book I got as a Christmas present to myself one year! I used a coupon on it too and was able to get it for $16 or so and it was so worth it. The book is gorgeous!

  27. I kind of just want to say DITTO to all of these! But I'd also love to add GRRM's 6th ASOIAF book, since I'm wishing! 😂

    I love so many of these things and now I have to remember that Christmas is a time to spend money on OTHER people! 😂

    Great list Greg and I hope that you get some of these things soon!

  28. Oh wow, how did I not know they have Funko dolls for the Star Wars Rebels characters? You just made my day with that :)

  29. Ohh, I like what you chose, especially those funko pops! :D

  30. Cool choices - I really like that Three Musketeers art! :)

  32. I do adore those Rock Paper Scissors books, and that cantina glass is stellar!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love those cover you shared at the end! I really like that style of cover art.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I obviously need to be paying attention to Rock Paper books because I LOVE the art - so beautiful and perfect for each book. I take it you can get wall art etc for all/most of these because that is a necessary thing. Lots of good stuff and I hope it all finds a way into your home! Homeless cool stuff is so sad...

  35. I really like all the Marvel bobbleheads that are so popular now. I've got to find one that suits me nicely. I like that shot glass from Tatooine. That would be a great gift for my brother.

  36. I literally want all the LotR/Star Wars stuff you put on here^^ whether it's books or memorabilia ♥ And those Rock Paper books have fab covers!
