🐝 Top Ten Tuesday πŸ

So I’ve decided to muscle in on The Broke and the Bookishβ€˜s fantastic Top Ten Tuesday meme! This week it’s…

🌈 Top Ten Books We Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under Our Trees This Year 🌈

Work has been so super busy and I’m trying to plan for my holiday on New Year’s Day that I’ve been a bit lax in my blog posts (naughty me!!) I will be better in the new year! Anyway, I’m going to be looking at the prettiest books I would like to adorn my bookshelf with this Christmas. So without further ado…

Harry Potter and the Philopsopher’s Stone (Ilustrated)

Harry Potter and the Phiolosopher’s Stone illustrated by Jim Kay. Book and images by Bloomsbury

 

I want it so much it hurts!

The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings

The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings Boxed Set (Paperback)

The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien

Our family copies of LoTRΒ is in a bad way (they are my mum’s from the 70’s!) and my copy of The Hobbit never recovered from when I accidently doused it in coke on a school trip. A lovely new, matching set would be perfect!

His Dark Materials

His Dark Materials: Including All Three Novels: Northern Light, the Subtle Knife and the Amber Spyglass (Hardback)

His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman (hardcover)

My friend actually bought me beautiful copies of the three individual books a few years ago so I can’t really complain, but I think this edition is just sumptuous!

🐝

Discworld Series

Wyrd Sisters

Guards! Guards!: Discworld: The City Watch Collection (Hardback)

Mort: Discworld: The Death Collection (Hardback)

The Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett

I’ve long been ashamed to say I have never read any Terry Pratchett, especially since his sad passing this year. It’s definitely on my resolutions list to read at least one of this books, and with these beautiful designs, I have no excuse not too!

🐝

Grimms’ Fairy Tales

Grimm's Fairy Tales - Fall River Classics (Hardback)

Grimm’s Fairy Tales illustrated by Arthur Rackham

I love fairy tales but I don’t have a compilation of fairy tales! I have chosen this particular copy as it’s illustrated by one of my favourite illustrators, Arthur Rackham.

🐝

The Odyssey

The Odyssey - Penguin Clothbound Classics (Hardback)

The Odyssey by Homer

I’ve long admired this copy of the Odyssey by Penguin. My own copy is the one I used in college and for my degree and so is covered in post-its, highlights and scribblings. I think this copy would be quite at home on my bookshelf!

🐝

Puffin Classics Deluxe Collection

 

 

The collection contains Black Beauty, Peter Pan, The Call of the Wild, The Wind in the Willows, The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Secret Garden, Huckleberry Finn and Anne of Green Gables! Just look at it. A majestic rainbow of literature!Β
