Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
The rules are simple: Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to http://www.thatartsyreadergirl.com/ in your Top Ten Tuesday post.
This week it’s about books we wish Santa brings us.
- In A Holidaze
I have heard amazing things about this book. I cannot wait to read it one day. It’s about this girl who basically gets stuck in a time loop and has to relive her Christmas over and over again to find her true love under the mistletoe.
2. Midnight Library
Another book I had heard great things about. It’s about how there’s this library that has an infinite amount of books, some of them are about what would your life be like if you had many different choices in your life. It’s about finding out what makes life living in the first place.
3. One by One
The first (and only book, so far) that I have heard by Ruth Ware was Turn of the Key, and it was amazing! I loved reading that book so much. I am excited to read this book because my Grandma read it, and she told me she really enjoyed it. This is like a Whodunnit meets thriller kind of book. It’s about 12 people who get snowed in a chalet.
4. Guest List
They are calling this book one of the best thrillers of the year. It’s about a wedding where someone ends up dead. People begin to wonder what happened, and why this person had died.
5. Anxious People
When a bank robber failed to rob a bank, he then bursts into an open house, and holds people hostage. The group of strangers realize that they have more in common than they thought.
6. The Return
This is the story of an injured Navy doctor, and two secrets that will change his life forever.
7. The Devil Wears Prada
I have watched the movie, and thought it was amazing! So I have always wanted to read the book.
8. A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder
It’s about how about a murder case that has been closed for a few years now, and a student in her final year picks this as her project, she discovers that people in this town has secrets.
9. Confessions on the 7:45
It’s about how these two strangers, Selena and Martha end up having a conversation on the train because they are sitting next to each other. Martha talks about how she believes that her husband is having an affair. Which makes Selena confess to Martha that her husband is sleeping with the nanny. Eventually the train stops at their destinations. They assume that they wouldn’t see each other again.
But days later, Selena’s nanny goes missing, and she now becomes a part of the disappearance of her nanny. This results in her marriage problems arising. So, who exactly is this Martha person?
10. The Guilty Mother
*Trigger Warning* Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, Murder
This book is about a woman who deals with the death of a young infant from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, and then a few weeks later her other twin daughter dies.
This mother is facing murder charges for her twin daughters. But did she really do? If she didn’t do it then what really happened to her children?
