Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Books on My Christmas List

Hello, dear readers, and today I’m trying something a bit different. Shanah, aka Bionic Book Worm has a series on her blog where she discusses her “Top 5 ___” with a bookish theme, and encourages other bloggers to do so as well. I thought I’d give it a try, so here are the Top 5 Books on My Christmas List: 

[Book Cover image of white woman looking over shoulder at viewer. Overtop is the title of the novel and three award stickers, including the Stonewall Book Award]

If I was Your Girl by Meredith Russo

[Book cover illustration of two women back to back and holding hands in a blue-scale background. One has a bow and sheath of arrows and the other is dressed as a princess and looking at a castle in the distance. The pair are small and located low on the cover whereas the title takes up most of the page in gold, intricate lettering]

Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst

[Book cover illustration of the back of a woman's head. She has tan/medium skin and an undercut with the title of the book shaved into her head with the rest of her curly hair piled atop her head in a neat bun]

Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera 

[Book cover image of a white woman in a bright green dress laying against a green background. Her eyes are not in frame and her lips and nails are a bright red. The title is centered over the cover]

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

[Book cover illustration of a young woman floating at the bottom of a pool. She has blue skin and dark hair and the water cuts off the title halfway, so that the first word is a light red and the second a light blue in the darker water, implying depth]

Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy

Obviously all of the novels here are LGBTQ+ themed and/or have queer protagonists. Also, here are the December Themes for Shanah’s Top 5 prompts, if you would like to try this for yourself. What books are you looking forward to this Holiday Season? 

 

Sincerely yours, 

Nyla Linn (She/Her)

  1. Welcome to Top 5 Tuesday! So glad you joined 🙂 Great wish list! Evelyn Hugo is on my all time favourites list for sure! That book absolutely gutted my emotions! I read it last year and I’m still feeling the effects. SOOOOO GOOD! Hope all your wishes come true! Merry Christmas 🙂

    1. I feel this on a personal level. I haven’t had the chance to look into it as much as I want, but it’s been on so many people’s Top 5 lists that it must be good! I’ll get around to it… *looks at the large and ever growing to-be-read list*…eventually
