Top Ten Tuesday: Top ten bookish gifts I’d love to find by the light of my menorah (2017)

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings… but since I don’t get visits from Santa, I thought I’d make my post title a little more relevant to my life.

Tuesday is the last night of Hanukkah this year. Where did the holiday go? My TTT list this week isn’t really a practical wish list — it’s more about the luxury bookish things that I’d probably never buy myself, but would 100% be happy to have if the little Hanukkah fairies felt like dropping them off. (And yes, some of these are repeats from last year. A reader can dream, can’t she?)

1. Slayers & Vampires: The Complete Uncensored, Unauthorized Oral History of Buffy and Angel by Edward Gross and Mark A. Altman: There is ALWAYS room on my shelf for another Buffy book.

2. The illustrated edition of Game of Thrones: Because having beat-up paperback editions on my shelf just isn’t enough. The book looks gorgeous.

3. The Outlander Kitchen: This is funny if you know me, because I absolutely DO NOT COOK. I’m sure my husband would be rolling on the floor laughing hysterically right now if he knew I put a cookbook on my wishlist. But look! It’s Outlander, and it’s so pretty!

4. Any of all of these new Penguin hardcover editions of classic sci fi novels. Don’t these look amazing?

5. Have you seen the Harry Potter collection from Pendleton? Gorgeous… not that I would ever spend this kind of money on a fangirl blanket. But SO gorgeous.

6. I think it might be fun to have a Monopoly set from one of my favorite fandoms:

 

7. A gorgeous leather-bound edition of a favorite book (oh, say Outlander, for example) from Easton Press.

 

 

8. I’d love to find a coffee table book of Moby Dick, with beautiful illustrations and complete annotations of the text. I haven’t actually seen one (although I haven’t looked at that hard either), but that’s what I want.

9 and beyond: There are really tons of books I’d love to own, but will probably end up borrowing from the library:.

Whatever you’ll be celebrating this holiday season, may the bookish gift fairies be very kind to you!

Happy Holidays!

    • Oh, I’ve definitely read A Game of Thrones — it’s just that my paperback copy is falling apart, and I’d really love to get that illustrated edition. 🙂 But if you haven’t read it, you should! Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Happy Hanukkah, Lisa, I hope you’ve had a lovely holiday this year! The illustrated edition of Game of Thrones is beautiful – also heLLO illustrated Ned Stark, how you doin’? – and I haven’t started reading the Outlander books yet but even I wouldn’t mind owning a copy of that cookbook. Those new Penguin sci-fi editions are very pretty, too – I desperately need to read some of Ursula Le Guin’s work – and I really need to read Little Fires Everywhere, I loved Everything I Never Told You. Whether you buy a copy or get it out from the library I highly recommend reading Stay With Me – I loved it!

    • I’ve been eying Stay With Me for weeks now — it’s on hold at the library, but I may have to break down and treat myself to a copy. 🙂 I’m so glad to hear you loved it! I still need to read Everything I Never Told You — maybe I should start there, since I actually have a copy. Happy Holidays!

  2. Wow, those Game of Thrones illustrations do look amazing. Oooh I love the Harry Potter blanket but ddaaaammmmnnnn $299!? Yeah I wouldn’t spend that kind of money on a blanket either, I don’t care how cozy it is.

    • Yeah, I think a $299 blanket (even though it’s amazing!!) is waaaay down on the list of things I’d actually spend money on… but it’s nice to dream. 🙂

  3. Oh my gosh, so many things on your list!!! I didn’t know Pendleton had any Harry Potter blankets!!! So sad they’re so expensive though 😦 The Game of Thrones illustrated edition is absolutely beautiful. I’ve seen it on Book Outlet here and there.
