Today at Top 5 Tuesday hosted by Shanah @bionicbookworm it’s time to write our letter to Santa!
Considering all the inconveniences, potholes, mini drama and ordeals I went through this year, HE’D BETTER DELIVER!
If not, stab, stab, stab the elves! And I’ll chop his reinders antlers with my son’s katana (after sharpening the blade as it seems more ornamental than anything else to me!). I’ll be so vicious that I’ll fatten him up with out infamous Belgian chocolate and he’ll stay stuck into chimneys!
How so I should try asking nicely first???? REALLY?
Because karma did not ask nicely if I agreed to all that was thrown my way this year!
But if you say so, let’s change tune and go with ….
You really don’t look your age (of course the beard could mask the wrinkles) and for centuries now are determined to bring us joy and toys (even when you brought me a Ken doll instead of Barbie because you mistook my appartment for that of our neighbor).
You swiftly deliver the goods (thanks to young enslaved elves) to our homes while the kids are asleep (I tried to stay awake but I suspect you bribed my parents to give me some sleeping pills).
I think this year I have been extra kind and patient and loving and dedicated and ….because I faced my husband’s attempt at cartwheeling graciously above his bike but ending with broken ribs and clavicle. I also spared my son an untimely death when he decided wait all summer before making his next move in his job’s quest. These last days I’ve also become a dog carrier while waiting for her surgery, moving her from room A to B and vice versa 10 seconds later. All that without complaining!
So I’d be forever grateful if you could bring me these books under the Christmas tree.”
And that’s where I show you the goodies ladies and gents!
The Empire of Gold by SA Chakraborty : the conclusion of the EPIC Daevabad trilogy!
Credence by Penelope Douglas: the blurb is giving me delicious thrills.
Chosen by Kiersten White: I want to watch who Nina will become!
Aurora Burning by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kauffman: because Kal is MINE!
Where the Lost Wander by Amy Harmon: because Amy + Historical = Magic;
One of Us Is Next by Karen McManus: as I loved One of Us is Dying!
A Heart so Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer: it’s Grey’s story!
My Maddie by Tillie Cole: as Flame is the most broken, tortured, touching, badass ..
Imagine Me by Tahereh Mafi: because it’s the last one and we were left on a huge cliffy!
Great and Precious Things by Rebecca Yarros: I love the cover and I need an ugly cry (she usually never fails to deliver).
Now do tell me: what would you like under the Christmas tree this year?
Thanks for reading!
