It's Top Ten Tuesday time! I'm linking up over at The Broke and The Bookish. I have been a little bit better about doing these prompts lately, yay! Even though it is still a little early for winter, I do think that it's good to do this prompt now because there might be some winter-y books that I want to read this year that I have not yet purchased. Gives me a nice reminder and some time to pick them up! So, here are the Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR.
1. Winterspell by Claire Legrand
This one seems like a pretty obvious choice since it has the word winter in the title. It sounds like the action begins on Christmas Eve, which makes it even more perfect. I have already picked up this book, and it sounds incredible, so I am not sure that I could wait much longer to read it anyway.
2. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch
Once again, this one has the word snow in it, so it really just makes sense to read it in the winter (though we never know if we will actually get snow here in Texas, that's beside the point). This is another more recent release that I have already picked up, and I've heard great things, so I cannot wait to read it.
3. My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories by MANY great authors
I have heard nothing but great things about this book already. I do not think that I have read an anthology like this, outside of the ones I had to occasionally read for college. Obviously it's holiday stories, so it only makes sense to read this in the winter.
4. Let it Snow: Three Holiday Romances by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle
This one is similar to the previous one as it is another anthology book with multiple winter stories. I have heard great things about this one as well, and while I do not have a copy of this one yet, I do hope to find it in the near future so that I can read it this winter as well.
5. The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
So, technically I don't think that this book relates to winter at all, but that's perfectly okay. This is a 2014 release that I have heard SO many great things about, so I have already picked it up. Winter break for me means having a couple weeks off of teaching, so I will finally have time to pick up this book and enjoy it. I'm definitely looking forward to it!
6. The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
Once again, not sure that this book has anything to do with winter. However, it is a fairly long read, which means I have not really had the time to pick it up since purchasing it. I have not read a lot in the adult genre, but after finding out that Emma Watson will be playing the lead character in the movie adaptation, I knew that I was going to read it. Hopefully I can find the time this winter.
7. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
This is actually more of an "I need to finally finish reading it." I have been "reading" this book for several months now, and I am not sure why I have not been able to get through it because I am enjoying it. I guess it's just been a bit slow for me. Cinder was the same way, but once it finally picked up pace I was able to finish quickly. I do hope the same happens here.
8. Cress by Marissa Meyer
Naturally, once I finish Scarlet I need to read Cress so that I will be completely caught up with the series. That way I am completely prepared when Fairest and Winter come out NEXT YEAR. I cannot believe we get two more books in this series next year. So excite.
9. Queen of Someday by Sherry D. Ficklin
I have had this book on Netgalley for a couple of months now, which is more than enough reason to read it this winter because I really need to get my percentage up on there. Also, look at that cover. I think that I will probably purchase a physical copy to actually read, that way I can have this on my shelf. :]
10. The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson
Look, there is snow/ice on the cover, so that definitely matches up with the winter theme, right? Honestly, Laurie Halse Anderson is one of my favorite authors, she is also one on my very limited list of auto-buy authors (right next to Sarah Dessen). I cannot believe I have let this book sit on my shelf for so long without reading it, so I plan to change that soon.
There we have it, the top ten books I hope to read this winter. Have you read any of these books? Did you enjoy them? What books are on your winter TBR?
