Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish in which they select a topic every week, and the rest of us get to make Top Ten lists based on that topic. This week’s topic: Top Ten Books on My Winter TBR. With cold weather making me want to hunker down, and a little extra time off of work, this is the time of year when I can get more then a typical amount of reading done. Here’s what I am most looking forward to (click on the book title to be taken to the Goodreads link):
HARRY POTTER SERIES
I made a 2017 New Year’s resolution to finish the Harry Potter series, and I am only 2 books away from finishing the original series. I currently have a bunch of library books in my possession, but I’m going to need to prioritize these two books to meet my goal!
LIBRARY BOOKS CURRENTLY IN MY POSSESSION
I’d like to think that I will read all of these before I need to return them, but the odds of that and finishing Harry Potter are slim. I guess we will see what strikes my fancy in the next few weeks!
The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe: I am always drawn to books set during World War II, and this book looks like it is right up my alley…the story of a young teen who keeps the magic of books alive while in a concentration camp and at great personal risk to herself.
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon: This YA diverse romance has been getting rave reviews. It looks like a lighter read, and I can’t wait to dive in.
Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert: A teen has to make some hard decisions about her schooling so that she can care for her step brother who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Along the way, she begins to develop feelings for the same girl her brother is in love with.
The Lying Game by Ruth Ware: I recently listened to The Woman in Cabin 10 on audio and enjoyed it. I knew I would read this one at some point. I love a good thriller, and I hope this one does not disappoint.
OTHER 2017 RELEASES THAT ARE POSSIBILITIES
I am very much a mood reader so I never make definite reading plans. Here are some books that are possibilities, but I am sure that I will also be reading books not on this list. We will have to wait and see what the winter holds
The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine: This debut thriller has gotten RAVE reviews, and I currently have the book on hold at the library. I can’t wait for the hold to come in, because this one sounds like a winner.
Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker: Another thriller that’s gotten great reviews. Apparently I am on some sort of thriller kick? This one is about two sisters who go missing, and what happens when one of them returns years later without the other one.
BOOKS I’VE BEEN MEANING TO READ FOR AWHILE
Mosquitoland by David Arnold: A girl takes a Greyhound to visit her biological mother who is sick, and she meets a host of characters along the way. I’ve had the opportunity to meet Arnold, and I love his personality, his love of music, and his Instagram account. I always love to read authors who have touched me in some way with what they’ve said.
Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven: I love Jennifer Niven….what more can I say. I’ve heard good things about this book, and I can’t believe I haven’t already read it!
Any guesses as to how many of these I will actually read? It’s hard to know!
What do you plan on reading this winter?
