Top 10 Tuesday (5) - on a Wednesday, in Australia...

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme from The Broke and the Bookish!
Unfortunately, I can only think of 9 but let me know what you think :)

Top 10 Books I'd Like to Give as Gifts (and to who!)

1. Possum Magic by Mem Fox - I would give this to each of my little sisters as I believe it's a cute book and every Aussie kid should have read it! It's also one of my childhood favourites :)

2. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl - To my little sisters again as Roald Dahl is just amazing!

3. Harry Potter box set (hardcover) by J.K. Rowling - To my stepmum, Kelly, because she obsesses over Harry Potter with me and doesn't mind having in depth discussions comparing the movies to the books with me!

4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - To my best friend Hayley (who lives WAY too far away from me :( ) because quite frankly, I think she'd love it and Hayley, you should read more ;) but I love and miss you!

5. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor - To my mum, because she has started listening to me/my Aunty and is *gasp* starting to read books that AREN'T by Stephen King! Plus, I think she'd really like it, and it's "normal" (aka: not first person)

6. On The Jellicoe Road by Melina Merchatta - To my Aunty Caroline. HOLY WOW. This book is awesome! And it's Australian! You. Must. Read. :)

7. A Shore Thing by Snooki - To Jordon, because it would make you laugh and it'd make me laugh. Also, she is clearly an idiot. Hahaha!

8. Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma - To my Aunty Faith, because it is riveting and creepy and how cool is the author's name? Also, I just discovered you enjoy Young Adult, YAY!

9. Full Dark, No Stars - To Darren (Jordon, aka: my boyfriend's, brother), because you're a horror freak and I've heard this is pretty creepy!

What are your Top 10 picks :)


  1. Roald Dahl IS amazing. My favourite that I've read of his has got to be Matilda.

  2. Ohhh I got Daughter of Smoke and Bone this week!! I'm really excited to read it, it sounds so good! Thanks for stopping by and following :)

  3. -k, my favourite as a kid was George's Marvellous Medicine!
    Anna, Daughter of Smoke and Bone is AWESOME! I love love loved it!! And you're welcome :)

  4. hehe Hunger Games! I love Harry Potter! That would be on my list too... Just everyone already seems to have it :-P I Followed you back :)

  5. It's okay for my stepmum though because I think she used to own them all but if I could I'd love to get her a new boxset :)

  6. Awww why didn't I read Possum Magic as a kid? Looks cute! I was too busy obsessing over horror stories haha.

    HARRY POTTER, YES. Your stepmum is awesome <3 Anyone who will happily obsess over HP is awesome. And of course, totally agree with your THG and DOSAB choices! A-freaking-mazing books.

  7. I had to bookmark this list because although the recommendations aren't for me :-( lol I want to read all the books you recommended!
