Q.Letter to Santa. Tell Santa what books you want for Christmas!

Seriously? I can write more than 10 pages of books that I want for Christmas this year! BUT I won't be greedy this year and only ask for a FEW books!

Dear Santa,
You may or may not have noticed that I haven't written to you in YEARS, so I'm hoping that you can send me some amazing presents this year :) I've been *cough*EXTREMELY GOOD*cough* this year, so perhaps you could send me Prince Ash wrapped beautifully for me to drool over? (nahh...Meghan will probably kill me!) So, instead, I've compiled a list of books I want for Christmas! 
  • THE VAMPIRE ACADEMY SERIES (minus the 6th book!) - I LOVE this series, but too bad I don't own the first 5 books!
  • CATCHING FIRE - I own Hunger Games & Mockingjay, so it would be lovely to receive Catching Fire for Xmas!
  • ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD - Please, PLEASE send me this one! I've been dying to read this for ages!
  • IRON DAUGHTER + IRON QUEEN - I own the first & last books! I'd love to have the second & third as well :)
  • Oh, and I'd love to received some 2012 releases...e.g. INSURGENT, and EVERNEATH and UNDER THE NEVER SKY and LOSING LILA and FATED....(I can go on forever!)

It's not much right? Well, Santa, I'm definitely looking forward to Christmas this year!

What about you? What books do you want for Christmas? :)


  1. Good picks!
    I think I'd rather like the Vampire Academy books, and Anna Dressed in Blood, too! Not to mention the entire Iron Fey series :D

  3. Hopping through. So much of what I want are 2012 release. I didn't list them on my post b/c it would have been pages long!

  4. You picked some awesome books! We are in the same boat with Catching Fire. I bought The Hunger Games, borrowed Catching Fire, and then bought Mockingjay, so I definitely want to get it so I can have the complete series. It bugs me when I'm missing a book in a series I love! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, following you now too.
