Top Ten Tuesday | Books On My Winter TBR

The Top Ten Tuesday Meme is brought to you via
The Broke and The Bookish

Oh, hi there!

How are you?  Are you cold?  I'm cold.  What is this weather?  It has been so cold in North Carolina.  Unusually cold for Autumn.  I had been wishing for colder days, for an escape from the 70+ degree weather.  But, a 50 degree drop was not what I was expecting.  I guess it's true what they say: Be careful what you wish for.  

But, to be honest, there is nothing better than coming home at the end of the day and curling up with a cup of hot cocoa or tea, and a good book.  That's one of the things I love most about this season.  And, I love Winter almost as equally as I love Autumn.

This week, we are talking about the books on my Winter TBR List!  A lot of these books are staring at me from my bookshelf as I write this.

Here are the deets...

1) Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Everyone has been raving about this series, and I seriously can't wait to start it!

2) The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

I've heard that Patrick Ness is an amazing writer.  I have two of his works, The Knife of Never Letting Go and A Monster Calls, and I have yet to read either.  But, that will change soon!

3) The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult

My mother bought this for me last Christmas.  So, it's been sitting on the bookshelf for quite some time.  I think that it's about time to give it a go.

4) The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

I think I bought The Darkest Minds over the summer (to be honest I'm not quite sure, I tend to lose track of all my book purchases).  I wasn't able to get around to it, but hopefully I will this Winter.

5) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This is another one that I got for Christmas.  I actually started this one once.  But, the beginning was a little slow and it was hard for me to get into.  However, I know that this is supposed to be a really good read, so I will give it another shot.

6) Requiem by Lauren Oliver

I started Lauren Oliver's dystopian series this summer.  I have really enjoyed it, and I am not sure why I haven't finished.  Maybe I just don't want it to end, but all things must eventually.

7) An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

An Abundance of Katherines and Will Grayson, Will Grayson are the only books of John Green's that I have not read.  I do not own Will Grayson, but I do own An Abundance of Katherines and I plan to read it soon.

8) The Death Cure by James Dashner

Okay, so I was not pleased with The Scorch Trials.  However, the curiosity of how this series ends is killing me.  So, I will be reading The Death Cure next season.

9) Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

This one has been chilling in my Kindle for quite some time.  I absolutely love Rainbow Rowell's work (I've read Eleanor and Park and Fangirl) and this is the next one on the list.

10) Burial Rites by Hannah Kent

I actually don't own this one, but I've seen a lot of positive reviews on it and heard BookTubers raving.

Blank Space...

Put your answers in that blank space below!

See ya next week,


  1. I am equally as excited to start the Throne of Glass series as well! So much blogger-raving! I read An Abundance of Katherines last year, and I liked it - it was cute, like a John Green book usually is, but it was probably my least favorite when it comes to all the other books of his that I've read (The Fault in Our Stars, Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns). But still a recommended read! The MC has a really cool quirk about anagrams that I dig!
    I also have yet to read a Rainbow Rowell book - I have one on my list: Eleanor and Park! But I would like to read Attachments soon too!
    My top ten!

    1. I wish Ihad read John Green's books in the opposite order, with TFIOS and Looking for Alaska last, so that the books would get progressively better. I liked Paper Towns but it took me so long to get through it. I wasn't captivated by it like I was with TFIOS, ya know? And, I fear that I will feel the same way about Katherines, so that's why I've been putting it off. I hope you get to read Eleanor & Park soon! I LOVED it. I'll be posting a review within the next two weeks (it's the end of the semester and exam time so everything is crazy), but be sure to drop by and check it out! Thanks, Roseanna!

  2. The Book Thief!!! Ah I love this one and I hope you end up enjoying it. The beginning is kind of different and hard to get in to, but keep going I promise it gets better :) Can't wait to see what you think of Attachments. I haven't read any of her books yet but want to get some opinions about which one to start with. Great list! Here is mine :)

  3. Yes! Burial Rites! I've had Attachments on my TBR forever now! I should probably read it soon! Thanks for stopping by Books Unbound! Awesome winter TBR!

  4. Requiem was better than I was expecting it to be. BUT I went into it with really low expectations because other bloggers disliked it. I still need to read The Book Thief. I also need to read Attachments! Great list!

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier!

  5. I started Throne of Glass way back when and just couldn't get into it which was surprising to me considering all the hype and that fantasy is one of my favorite genres. I never finished it so maybe I'll revisit it at some point. I had the same thing happen with The Book Thief. I'm such a moody reader, though. I'll definitely try again at some point.

    Great list!

  6. Thank you so much for the blog compliments!! Your blog is super cute too, I'm glad you commented so I could make my way over here! Can't wait for you to read Throne of Glass, It's one of my absolute favorites now, I recently finished Heir of Fire. And I really enjoyed Attachments, though Fangirl is my absolute favorite from her. Great choices, I hope you enjoy them! :)

  7. I loved Throne of Glass! I haven't read anything by Rainbow Rowell, but I do have Fangirl so hopefully I'll get to it soon. Thanks for stopping by! Great list!
