Top Ten Books on my Winter TBR list
I went back and forth and back and forth, about what I should include on this list. Top Ten Books I’m Most Excited To Read in Winter? Top Ten Books I’m Most Excited To Read (But Haven’t Included in a TTT Yet)?
Or, how about we keep it simple…? Top Ten Books on my Winter TBR List.
No, literally, these are the first ten books on my winter TBR list. I’ve been sticking to a semi-strict reading schedule lately, because ARCs sneak up on me if I’m not looking. So these are the first ten books I have scheduled to read in winter, beginning on December 21st (the first day of winter). Unfortunately, these ten books only get us through the end of January… so at the end of this list, I went ahead and listed the other nine books I’ve got on my TBR list up until March 20 (the first day of Spring). :P
1. Panic, by Lauren Oliver | A lot of people are comparing this to The Hunger Games, but I fail to see the comparison. It’s contemporary, not dystopian/sci-fi like a lot of people seem to think. Yeah, there’s a “potentially deadly competition”, but that’s about it. I’m really excited to see what Lauren Oliver does with this one, because it has the potential to be really powerful, about facing your fears and persevering despite hardships. I’m excited.
2. The Child Thief, by Brom | I have wanted to read this ever since I heard it called a “dark retelling of Peter Pan”. So when I saw it displayed at the front of my library, I took that as a sign and grabbed it immediately. I’m in the mood for some gritty fairytales, and this more than fits the bill.
3. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs | Ransom Riggs is doing a signing in Seattle in January, and I have to be prepared!! (Read: YAY I finally have an excuse to force me to read this book that I’ve been wanting to read FOREVER. Just remind me to keep the lights on while I do.)
4. Cruel Beauty, by Rosamund Hodge | Beauty and the Beast retelling. What more is there to say? Super excited to read this ARC.
5. Her Dark Curiosity, by Meagan Shepherd | I’m a little wary of this one, because I’ve seen more than a few bloggers, who were fans of book 1, end up utterly disappointed by this sequel. For reasons that I think I’ll probably agree with. But I can’t just let it slide, because I did love book 1, so I’m going to try to give this a chance.
7. Uninvited, by Sophie Jordan | So the main reason I’m reading this is because of Octavia @ Read. Sleep. Repeat. She read this one recently and got majorly excited about it over Twitter, and I am, more often than not, flaily over the same things she is. So of course I grabbed the eARC and am anxiously awaiting the moment I can finally start it. XD
8. All that Glows, by Ryan Graudin | I’m a little wary of this title, for some reason, but I can’t pass up faeries. I just can’t. (Though the main character’s name is going to bug me. Emrys? That will always be another name for Merlin, in my head, thanks to The Lost Years of Merlin and the BBC TV show…)
9. Let the Storm Break, by Shannon Messenger | Loved Let the Sky Fall, SUPER THANKFUL I got approved for this eARC on Edelweiss. I requested it a few months ago and was denied; but then I requested it again recently and they approved me! PHEW! Really excited to see more of Vane and Audra and the sylphs!!
10. The Unbound, by Victoria Schwab | This has seriously been on ALL my lists recently, but it really is the 10th book I’ll be reading this winter, okay??? I’m not just trying to push this series on people, I swear… well, not just… XD
Yeahhhhhhh, I’ve got a lot on my Winter TBR. And I’m sure there’ll be more. -_-
What’s on YOUR winter TBR? Do we have any books in common?
Let me know in the comments! And be sure to leave a link to your Top Ten post. I’d love to stop by!
