*Book Blogger Hop* 15 December 2017

We are on to a new week for the Book Blogger Hop hosted by the lovely folks over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. This weeks questions is:
Which book(s) would you like Santa to bring you this year? (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)
I don't usually rely on Santa to bring me books that I want because it is far easier for me to pick them up myself when I find a good deal on them, and even if Santa were bringing me books, I'd be absolutely okay with him picking them up used (although he's never done that before). With that being said, there are a few books that I really want but I just can't really justify buying for myself (because I have not found them used at my thrift store).

So what books am I hoping that Santa will leave under my tree this year? I desperately want the illustrated editions of the Harry Potter series (the first three books are out now), but I just cannot justify buying a fourth set of Harry Potter books for myself (the third set was a quite a stretch). I'm also like three years behind on Stephen King releases at this point because I don't buy Stephen King books until I know whether my parents bought them for me for Christmas (and with proofreading and blogging I haven't had as much time for "fun" reading as I used to, so I've been neglecting poor Mr. King. I'm sure he's real torn-up over it too.)

And I think that's really pretty much it. I buy so many books on my own, and while I typically wait for used copies or ebook sales, I have so many books currently in my possession that I desperately want to read that I don't feel the need to ask Santa for newer books that I can't justify paying full price for, because I can be patient and wait for a sale.

What about you? What books are you hoping to find underneath your tree this year? - Katie

  1. OMG!!! OF COURSE I would want Santa to leave all three of the Harry Potter illustrated editions under my Christmas tree! How could I have forgotten to mention them in my BBH post?! 😒 Now I think I'll add them to the list I already have! Lol.

    (I'm really my own Santa, though, like you!)

    Thanks for sharing! I hope you do get the books you want! Have a GREAT weekend! πŸ˜€✌πŸ’πŸ˜ŽπŸŒΉ

    1. They are kind of important for a Harry Potter collection :) Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

    2. You're SO right!! I need to leave MORE cookies underneath the tree, so Santa will bring me these three books, too!! Or maybe I'll just wave Harry's wand.... Lol.

  2. I have all the HP Illustrated versions on my list as well! They look SO stunning!

  3. The HP Illustrated editions are absolutely gorgeous and totally worth the money! I highly recommend it. Even if it's your fourth set! :D
