This week’s topic is Books We Hope Santa Brings, which is a funny one to write considering that we may have gotten each other some books…. Thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl for another great Top Ten Tuesday!
Expedition Deep Ocean by Josh Young
This sounds like an interesting combination of science writing and adventure story.
The Future of Nutrition by T. Colin Campbell
In the last year, I moved toward a plant-based diet in part thanks to Campbell’s research so I’m really interested in reading his recent work.
The Cold Millions by Jess Walter
I really enjoyed Walter’s Beautiful Ruins and this one sounds just as intriguing.
Darius the Great Deserves Better by Adib Khorram
Darius the Great hooked me right from the start and the follow-up sounds just as strong. Looking forward to getting back into Darius’ world!
Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell
After listening to a recent rave review of this novel surrounding Shakespeare’s son, I’d definitely like to give this one a shot.
The Rage of Dragons by Evan Winter
My friend Dan is a huge fan of this one, and we tend to align pretty closely in our fantasy tastes.
Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir
We got this one out of our local library, but we don’t have a copy of our own. I know I’ll be revisiting this one and lending it out to friends.
Age of War by Michael Sullivan
If I receive enough books in this series, maybe I’ll finally get around to starting it. I love the Riyria books—I just haven’t jumped into the prequel series yet for some reason.
Adjacentland by Rabindranath Maharaj
I wish I could remember whose WordPress review I read years ago that put this book on my list, but I’ve been trying to track it down ever since. It’s nearly impossible to find.
The Art of Game Design by Jesse Schell
I work as a board game designer, but I’m just starting to build my library of books on the topic. This is a classic that I’ve yet to find in a bookstore.
