Top Ten Tuesday : Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing This Year

I've been following lots of new-to-me blogs on bloglovin' over the past little bit and stumbled on this fun little "Top Ten Tuesday" deal sponsored by The Broke and the Bookish. I'm not promising that I'll always remember when Tuesday rolls around, but for this week, at least, let's play!
The theme this week is "Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing This Year." Now, if you know me at all you know that I really truly don't "need" more books. I have well over 2000 ebooks right now PLUS piles upon piles upon shelves full of actual books at home.

And yet.

I will always need more.

So, Santa, in no particular order of importance:

#10 Winston Graham - The Angry Tide
#9 Winston Graham - The Stranger From The Sea
#8 Winston Graham - The Miller's Dance
#7 Winston Graham - The Loving Cup
#6 Winston Graham - The Twisted Sword
#5 Winston Graham - Bella Poldark

I've already made a huge error in judgement. There IS an order of importance.
Start with #10 as the most important and then go from there -- at least for these first six on the list.

I fell madly in love with the Poldark saga in April and have only acquired (so far) the first six books of the twelve book series. (If you would like to bring me all twelve in matchy-matchy covers that would be awesome ... but I'm trying to not be all that picky.)

#4 Sophie Hannah - The Monogram Murders 

I wasn't sure for a good long time if I wanted to read this or not. I have issues with people re-writing favorite characters from time to time, but I feel as though I need to read this anyway... even if only to be able to gripe with all of the other naysayers.

#3 Emily Brightwell - Mrs. Jeffries Weeds The Plot

It's the fifteenth in the series and right now it's the only one I'm missing and it's driving me a wee bit mad. Please deliver it in epub format, please. I hate mixed format e-collections.

#2 Fynn - Mister God, This Is Anna

I have a copy already but it's seen better years. A first edition hardcover would be nice. Signed would be better.

#1 Thomas Hardy - Tess of the D'Urbervilles

Like, #2 -- I have this. I have devoured this. I have been permanently altered by this. If I find a first (or even second -- I'm not THAT picky) edition under my tree I won't ask for another book for .... ummmm .... two weeks, at least.
