Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post curated by The Broke and the Bookish. The topic for this week is Top Ten Books on my Winter TBR. I’ve mentioned before that TBRs drive me crazy because my rebellious nature just sees this plan ahead of me and seeks to upend it. But there are a few specific books I’d like to get to over the next few months, so I guess we’ll do the TBR thing and see what happens.
- The Smell of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock
I ordered this novel a while ago, and I cannot wait to read it. It might be because it’s tiny and receiving stellar reviews. With the snow on the cover, though, my brain made me wait until it was cold outside to pick this one up. I plan to start it sometime in December.
- Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
I’ve mentioned Turtles All the Way Down a few times now, mostly because it somehow moved from “heh, I’ll read that one day” to “top of the TBR.” Once I’m done with the ARCs and sequels on my list, I plan to start it.
- The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas
I’ve read Maas’s entire Throne of Glass series, but I skipped The Assassin’s Blade. I’m hoping to get to this collection of prequel novellas before the final book comes out, so fingers crossed.
- Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke
I intended on finishing this series before New Years Eve…last year. So. I would like to make good on that promise, even if it is a full year later.
- The Magician’s Land by Lev Grossman
This was right beneath Inkdeath on the list of concluding novels I wanted to get through in 2016. Clearly, I’m really good at this.
- Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews for Strange the Dreamer since it was released in March. I’ve never read anything by her, but this seems like the place to start!
- The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney
I’ve been craving some literary fiction lately, as I do when it gets cold out. I don’t own much of that genre, but I found The Nest at a local thrift shop and grabbed it. I’ve heard mixed things about this novel, so I’d like to see where I fall opinion-wise.
- City of Thieves: A Novel by David Benioff
This book is written by one of the television producers of Game of Thrones, and it’s supposedly an amazing WWII novel. Alas, it has a snowy cover as well, so it can only be read when I’m freezing.
- The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
I’ve been trying to buy less new releases, at least until I shrink my TBR pile a bit. Unfortunately, that means I haven’t bought the latest Grishaverse release yet. No, I’m not sobbing. I just have something in my throat…
- The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
This book has received so much hype, and from what I gather, it’s well deserved. I am going to be frustrated with myself if I don’t read this by Spring or Summer. This important of a novel cannot be put off any longer.
