Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want For My Birthday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Things I’d Have at My Bookish Party.” I wasn’t feeling this week’s topic, but since this topic happens to fall a couple of days before my birthday (May 7th), I thought I’d list ten books I want for my bday. That’s kind of party related, right? Also going to drop my Amazon wishlist here, which includes all of these and more, just for kicks. Covers are linked to Goodreads.


1. Sal & Gabi Break the Universe by Carlos Hernandez – I loved this one so much and it’s one of those rare cases where I actually prefer the cover redesign.

2. Into the Tall, Tall Grass by Loriel Ryon – I have an ARC of this one but I really want a finished copy. I limited my April purchases and decided this one could wait since I had already read it.

3. Into the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado – I recently listened to the audiobook of this one and it was so so good. I now need a copy on my shelf.

4. Children of the Land by Marcelo Hernandez Castillo – I read this memoir earlier this year and it was one of the most beautifully written novels I’ve ever read. I recently bought his book of poetry because I needed more words from him. Would love to own this one as well.

5. The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa – Now on to books I haven’t read, but still very much want. My library did not have a copy of this one and yet I’ve wanted to read it so badly. I almost listened to the audiobook but ran out of time to do so before my Scribd subscription ended.

6. Wicked As You Wish by Rin Chupeco – As a rule, I’ve told myself I can’t buy another Rin Chupeco book until I have finished their other newest release (The Never Tilting World) but I very much want this one.

7. Corazón by Yesika Salgado – I have mentioned this book of poetry more than a few times and still haven’t been able to read it. I have come close to buying it a few times but never did so.

8. Anger Is a Gift by Mark Oshiro – I have been wanting to read this one for so long. I almost bought it a few times, but didn’t and now I regret it.

9. The Undocumented Americans by Karla Cornejo Villavicencio – Another book I really wanted to read but now that the library isn’t an option, I would have to buy it.

10. Seven Deadly Shadows by Courtney Alameda and Valynne E. Maetani – I love the sound of this one so much and I have been wanting more Courtney Alameda stories since Pitch Dark.

What would be on your birthday wishlist? Let me know in the comments and be sure to leave me a link to your own TTT post, so I can visit.

  1. Happy early birthday! (maybe you’ll see this on the actual day lol)
    I have In the Dream House for this month’s TBR and I’m really excited for it. I really need to get myself a Rin Chupeco book.


  2. Such a great list (& happy late birthday!), I’m planning to read Into The Tall Tall Grass this summer!! Also, not sure if I mentioned it before, but I’ve seen you post more about Latinx poetry books and you inspired me to add more to my TBR, definitely going to look into Corazón! 😄💕
