Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
As someone who makes seasonal TBR’s anyway, I was super excited about this weeks topic, as it gave the chance to make my TBR for the next few months. Winter is definitely the time of year when I tend to read the most fantasy and classics, and so there are definitely a fair few on this list. I’m not sure if I will end up getting round to all of these books, or if I will even stick to this TBR at all, but nonetheless, here are 10 books on my Winter TBR!
As much as I loved the Miniaturist, one thing that would have made the entire experience so much better would be if I had read in the Winter months, and so I am determined to do just that with Jesse Burton’s next book. Once again, this one is a historical fiction, a genre that I instantly lean towards in the colder months, and so it seems like there is no better to pick up this one than in the wintertime.
I am desperate to carry on my reading of this series, especially after loving Prisoner of Azkaban, and believe that winter is the perfect time to do it. Not only does Harry Potter feel like such a warm and comforting read anyway, but I also know that I will keep putting this book off if I don’t pick it up soon, so I definitely hope I can get round to it this winter.
After reading a fair few classics over the course of the year so far, I am determined to keep my momentum up and continue through the winter months by hopefully picking this one up at some point during them. Although this is a pretty big book to say the least, I am really interested in reading it, and have had so many people tell me how good it is that I am hoping I can get over how intimidating this one is and pick it up pretty soon.
Winter for me basically means reading almost exclusively fantasy for a couple of months, and so this is the first of those that I would like to get round to this winter. I read the first book in this series, Snow Like Ashes, almost exactly a year ago, and so it is definitely time to continue on with this series and see where the story goes next.
This is one that I actually have to read for school, and so if I only read one book on this list, it will have to be this. I’m really intrigued by this book, mainly because of how little I know about it even after reading the synopsis, and so I can’t wait to dive into this one almost blind and see what it holds.
Although I do not read much contemporary in the Winter months, if I ever do feel like picking one up, then this one seems like the perfect book. Not only am I so desperate to read it, but it is also not a summer contemporary as such, and definitely isn’t a fluffy, light read, and so it seems like a good pick for this upcoming season.
Another classic here, and one that I am very excited to finally get to, mainly because it will be my first ever Jane Austen novel. I’ve really enjoyed reading so many more classics this year, and so think that it is definitely time to try an Austen novel for myself, and hopefully fall in love with her writing as so many other people have.
Another fantasy here that I have actually already tried to read once before, but ended up DNFing it around halfway through. However, since reading Six of Crows, I am desperate to give this series another go, and to hopefully finish, and enjoy this one more than I did the first time.
I finally read my first V. E. Schwab book back in October, and I already want to dive into another of her stories. I have heard so many amazing things about this entire series, and already adore the sound of it, and the concept of there being separate London’s which can be travelled between, and so would really love to dive into it and start this series for myself this winter.
I made a post a couple of months ago in which I discussed 5 books I wanted to read before the end of the year, and this, along with Goblet of Fire, is one of only two that I have yet to read. After finishing Heir of Fire recently, I am also really curious to read another series by Sarah J. Maas, especially one that is described as a beauty and the best retelling.
What books are you Winter TBR? Have you read any of these – what did you think?
