Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is another seasonal TBR, and so of course I had to join and share some of the books I am hoping to read this winter. As with almost all of my TBR’s, I don’t have much faith in me actually sticking to this list, as I much more of a mood-reader than one who sticks to pre-made TBR’s. But nonetheless, I always enjoy making these and projecting my aims of what I want to read out into the universe.
So here are all of the books on my Winter TBR!
After reading If We Were Villains a few months ago, I have been desperate for more dark academia, so Leigh Bardugo’s recent adult release sounds like the perfect book to fulfill my needs. This one also sounds like the perfectly twisted story to keep me up on dark winter nights and to make me wrap my blanket around me a little bit tighter.
Why have I still not read this book?! It has been sitting on my shelves for years now with no good reason for why I have ignored it for so long. I even picked it up this last year before putting it down after just a few chapters as life got in the way, so I am determined to finally get this book read and to hopefully fall in love with it as much as everyone else.
I’ve been really enjoying more adult fiction recently, and so I am hoping that this tale of four people who learn the date of their deaths as teenagers will continue that streak into 2020. This just sounds like exactly the sort of book I will fall in love with, and so I am really hoping that my gut feeling will turn out to be right if I do end up picking this one up soon.
I have been desperate to return to the world of the City of Sin ever since it took my heart in Ace of Shades, and so I feel like winter is the perfect time to give in whilst still not being too far off the expected release date of Queen of Volts. I just can’t see myself waiting much longer to continue this gripping story of the Shadow Game and street gangs, and so I would be more surprised if I didn’t dive into this one over the next few months.
In my attempt to motivate myself to read some of the backlist titles that have been on my TBR for way too long now, I am putting this YA fantasy on my Winter TBR as it is one I have been interested in for so long but still have yet to pick up. I think I’ve got into the habit of ignoring books that have been out for a while over new releases and ones that are super hyped, so hopefully if I can read and enjoy this one soon then it will remind me to pay more attention to those older titles.
I have been meaning to dive into this one ever since I read the first chapter for my Try a Chapter Tag in March, and so I feel like Winter might finally be the time to do exactly that. The fact that the magic in this world revolves around storms and the power to control them just makes it even more fitting to read in whilst curled up inside with the wind and rain roaring outside.
One of my reading goals for 2020 is going to be to reread at least four books, and so what better way to start achieving it than to continue on with my reread of my favourite series. This is also one of the few books on this list that I have real faith in me actually reading, as I have a very bad streak of sticking to TBR’s, but come January I will likely be in desperate need of a comforting book like this one to get me through exams and the start of another semester at uni.
With the final book in this trilogy, The Toll, being released last month, there is now truly no excuse to not dive straight into this super popular book that I am sure I will love just as much as everyone else. Everyone has been raving about this series for so long that it is well past time for me to dive into myself and so hopefully this winter is the time to do it.
I have been slowly (and I mean slowly) making my way through this book for months now, so it is well past time for me to just fully commit to reading it rather than just reading a page or two here and there. I am now super behind on Cassandra Clare’s releases, and so by finishing this one I might finally get at least slightly back on track before her latest trilogy ends.
I have been hardly reaching for contemporaries recently, and so if any book has the possibility to change that streak it might just be this one. I adored C. G. Drew’s debut novel, A Thousand Perfect Notes, and whilst I’m not quite sure whether I’m ready to have my heart broken again, I am definitely ready for another of her gorgeous stories to keep me warm this winter.
