Top Ten Tuesdays #17 – December 22nd, 2020

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.

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.
