This week’s TTT is always a fun one! I love seeing what books everyone else is hoping to find under the tree. I do not usually receive a ton of books for Christmas, but gift cards to bookstores is a popular gift for me, and I love it! So this is a list of books I would be so grateful to find under the tree or I will most likely purchase with gift cards or as gifts to my myself.
I love when classic novels are adapted into graphic novels. The Great Gatsby is one of my favourites, so I am very curious to see how it works in this format.
I have talked a lot about how much I want to read A Discovery of Witches in 2021, and I would love to get my hands on the box set so I can binge read the series.
I read and loved The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle earlier this year, and I need to read more from Stuart Turton! The Devil and the Dark Water is set on a ship, which is one of my favourite settings.
Monday’s Not Coming is the last of Tiffany D. Jackson’s books that I have to read. I have the audiobook, but I own her other three books and it is one of the few cases where I want all of an author’s books on my shelves.
I don’t think I need to explain why I would love to find The House in the Cerulean Sea under the tree! It seems to be the book of 2020!
Fable is not my usual genre or something I would normally be drawn to, but something about it is calling my name. I am curious about her other series as well, so I would love to get a taste for her writing style.
I have been in the mood for food memoirs lately, and The Cooking Gene has been on my radar for awhile now. Sounds amazing!
I have become obsessed with all things Greek mythology, so it is a sin that I haven’t read anything by Stephen Fry yet. I want to slowly collect all his gorgeous editions, starting with Mythos, and I know he has a new one coming out next year.
The Library at Mount Char is one I have been talking about a lot lately. I find myself in the mood for a weird book!
As someone with a pet Calico who I adore, I need The Cat and the City in my life! Look at that cover! It is also giving me major The Travelling Cat Chronicles vibes, which is one of my favourite books.
What is one book on your wishlist?

Glad to know I’m not the only bookworm who feels like certain books should be with me in paper rather than the e-version. 😂
I literally haven’t been reading the whole of Divergent series because of this. It’s tempting as anything, but I want them in physical copies 😀
The All Souls Trilogy is still one of my favorite series – hope you get lots of gift cards!
Thank you! So excited to finally read that trilogy.
I haven’t read Monday’s Not Coming yet either. Hope it’s good.
I have high hopes for it!
Great list! I keep hearing so many good things about The House in the Cerulean Sea, and I listened to the audiobook of Monday’s Not Coming earlier this year and it was amazing. Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas! I cannot wait for both of those. Have high hopes for them!!
Wonderful list! Cat in the City is on my TBR, but not in my post today.
So excited about that one!
I wouldn’t mind getting the audio versions of Kune or Young’s books. I have heard they are good. I hope you get them!
I have heard they are both fantastic on audio!
THE DEVIL AND THE DARK WATER IS AMAZING I HOPE YOU GET IT AND LOVE IT!! (Maybe got a bit too excited there but it’s brilliant! You have great taste haha). Here was my go at this prompt 🙂 https://hundredsandthousandsofbooks.blog/2020/12/22/ttt-top-ten-books-i-want-for-christmas/
Ahhh love hearing that!! His first book blew me away!
Yeah, I read The Seven Deaths (I assume that’s what you’re talking about!) last year and whilst I was a bit confused it was sooo goood
I hope you get some of these! I really want The House in the Cerulean Sea as well!
I have a feeling we will both love it!
The box set of Discovery of Witches was on amazon (ebook) for 99p so I grabbed it (this was a few weeks ago)
Wow that is a deal!
I grabbed it in 0.2 seconds!
I hope you get some of these! I want Fable and The House in the Cerulean Sea too! 🙂
So excited about both of those. Been really into fantasy lately!
The House In The Cerulean Sea is on my Christmas list. I want to know what the hype is about. I hope Santa brings these for you!
Same!! I hope we both get it and love it.
I heard Discovery of Witches was quite good, and the Stephen Fry book sounds great too!
Excited about both of those. They’ve been on my TBR for ages but just haven’t bought them!
I feel like books make for the best Christmas gift so this post is quite topical haha. I read A Discovery of Witches a year or two ago and it was so much fun so I definitely think you’d love it! Also YES The House in the Cerulean Sea is just incredible!! The Library at Mount Char is another one that I’ve seen so many positive reviews about but just haven’t gotten around to reading myself. I hope you’ll get to read some of these books soon! ❤
Thank you! Looking forward to all of those!
That’s a great list 😍
So many great choices! The House in the Cerulean Sea was such a favorite of mine this year. And I love Mythos! I’d recommend listening to the audiobook (maybe with the physical book on the side) — Stephen Fry is so amazing as a narrator. I hope you get some great bookish gifts!
I have heard that about Stephen Fry! The books are stunning, so listening to the audiobook while reading is probably the nest idea!
The House in the Cerulean Sea as amazing! I hope Santa brings it for you!
Thank you! Here’s hoping!
I really enjoyed Monday’s Not Coming; I hope you received a copy!
I did and I was so thrilled. Definitely reading it in January!
Hope you enjoy it!
I wish I would just finish reading The Great Gatsby already. Picked it up twice now.
A Discovery of Witches, rather the All Souls trilogy is my all-time favourite books! You’re in for a ride…
I love The Great Gatsby, but I know it has so many mixed reviews!
I received the box set for Discovery of Witches, and I cannot wait to dive into the series!!
Yay! Happy Reading…!!!
