Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book blog meme now hosted by Jana over at The Artsy Reader Girl!
This week's topic is:
Books I Want Santa to Bring Books ft. Elves, Reindeer, & Toys!
Okay, so for this week's Top Ten Tuesday I'm getting a little, er, creative with this week's Santa-related topic and have developed a list of Santa-related items that appear in books, such as elves, toys, and reindeer! I should preface this by saying that most of these books are not Christmas/winter-related (i.e. the elves in these books are clearly not Santa's elves, though some of them may be willing to help out if you ask, I'm sure), though some are just by nature of the topic. Still, these are all great books that I would highly recommend!
If you enjoy books with elves, here are some books that each have their own unique variation of elves to explore!
Okay so not all of these are directly reindeer... but there are deer in these stories!
The Toymakers is a beautiful and sort of heartbreaking books that features quite a lot of toys since it takes place largely within an incredibly magical and amazing toy store, Papa Jack's Toy Emporium. Coraline also features some toys, though Coraline definitely takes a darker turn at times (though that's not to say The Toymakers is all fun and games!).
And bonus--Santa-inspired! 🎅🤶
Have you read any of these? What books would you add to any of these categories!?
Fun list! The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe is one I love to reread!ReplyDelete
It's such a fun book!Delete
This is such a creative post! Now you've got me thinking about books I've read with these elements...ReplyDelete
It was hard at first to come up with some (especially reindeer!), but once I got going they started popping up more, haha.Delete
Aww, I loved this post. You were so creative with it. I had no idea there were so many books featuring reindeer.ReplyDelete
I'm so glad! I know, I thought reindeer was going to be a hard one, but I was surprised by what I could do with it!Delete
Man, if I read Coraline as I kid I would have had nightmares for months! Great list!ReplyDelete
Oh man, same! I mean, I had nightmares about ET for months, so I can only imagine what this book would have done to my dreams, haha. Thanks!Delete

Such a fun topic! One of these days I need to read The Lord of the Rings.ReplyDelete
I like your spin on the topic! When I think of elf books, the first one that comes to mind is Dobby from Harry Potter.ReplyDelete
