Ten Books on my Winter TBR – Lots of Sequels + Pretty Covers!
Top Ten Books on my Winter TBR
Once again, I am linking up with Top Ten Tuesday, hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish! This weeks theme is ‘Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR‘. For some reason, I feel like I’m going to have no problem getting ten the time… wow, I wonder why?
I didn’t do too poorly with my Fall tbr, but still, maybe I can do a bit better with this one… I read five and… two halves. Maybe this time I can read like, all ten? Or at least eight or nine or something? Maybe? that would be nice…
1 – Tempests and Slaughter
by Tamora Pierce
This is one of my most anticipated releases, and it’s coming out in February, so I plan to read it as soon as it comes in the mail, and… yeah, it’s definitely on my winter tbr. It’s about a character that I really love from a series I love, and it’s his backstory, AND I NEED IT!! Because his backstory sounds so interesting, and oh my gosh, I need this so bad. Also that cover. I am in love.
2 – Tess of the Road
by Rachel Hartman
This is another of my anticipated releases, and it’s also coming out in February, so I’m hoping to read it this winter, but I might not get around to it until spring… I’m not sure. It’s a spinoff of a series that I like, and it has DRAGONS, and a gorgeous cover, and I like the protagonist already, after only having read the blurb, so… I think this is going to be amazing, and I hope I get to read it sooner rather than later.
3 – Insurgent
by Veronica Roth
So… I didn’t really like Divergent. But, I do want to know what happens, because I sort of like some of the characters… If not Tris, then some of the others at least. I really should just get it over with and read this, but… I just don’t want to. Technically I already started this, but I’m not even fifty pages in, and I haven’t read ANY of it for who knows how long, so I think it still counts.
4 – Our Dark Duet
by Victoria Schwab
I read This Savage Song a couple months ago, and it was SO GOOD!!! I immediately put a hold on ODD, but I still haven’t gotten it, and I want it so bad!!! There’s only one person in front of me, so I should get it fairly soon, but I am SO impatient!
5 – King’s Cage
by Victoria Aveyard
I didn’t love the first two books in this series, and they were certainly somewhat unoriginal, but I enjoyed them well enough, and CLIFFHANGER!! So… I want to finish the series. I have a hold on this one as well, but there is a LOT of people in front go me, so, although I’m hoping it will come sooner rather than later, I may or may not get it this winter.
6 – Geekerella
by Ashley Poston
This sounds super awesome, because it just has so many aspects that sounds absolutely wonderful! First of all, it’s a Cinderella retelling, and I love retellings, so that sounds lovely. Second of all, it sounds super relatable. One main character is a huge fan of some TV show or movie or something, and the other character is an actor in it… I feel like the fangirling aspect will obviously be really relatable, but I also really love acting, and I think that part has even more of a draw for me… I’ve never really read a book about an actor before, and I’d really like to.
7 – The Last Olympian
by Rick Riordan
So… yeah, I still haven’t finished this series. Really, I quite enjoy it, but for some reason I’m getting through it at an incredibly slow pace. I think I’ll probably manage to read this at some point this winter, but who knows really… I hope so anyways.
8 – Saturdays at Sea
by Jessica Day George
This was one of my absolute favourite series when I was younger, and I was really looking forward to this book… and then by the time it came out, I found I’d outgrown the series, and just didn’t care anymore. I still enjoy the series, and sort of want to know what happens, but not enough to buy it. I found it on Kindle for cheap though, so now all I need to do is get around to reading it. It’s pretty short, so I’ll probably read it in a day once I do, I just haven’t bothered yet.
9 – Half Bad
by Sally Green
I opened this, saw that it was in second person, read the first page, and gave up. I just felt so disconnected, and… just couldn’t bring myself to read any further.
However, I am still hoping to read it, so I want to give it another try. I just… can’t bring myself to pick it up.
10 – The Silver Chair
by C. S. Lewis
I borrowed this from a friend about six months ago, and I still haven’t read it… oops. I really mean to, I just don’t enjoy Narnia very much… I’m going to try and read it, but it’s just so boring!
But I borrowed it from someone, so I really should read it soon, and then, like, give it back. But… I need to motivate myself first. Gah, I’ll read it at some point, but it might be a while.
So, that’s my winter tbr… I’ll probably end up only reading half of these, and reading everything else instead, but I’ll try. And maybe I’ll at least read some of them.
I hope. It also occurs to me that most of these are sequels… for whatever reason… I don’t really know how this is at all relevant, but more ethan half of them are sequels, and I’m tired, so I’m rambling. Stop it Iris.
Geekerella was just such a fun read. I loved every second of it!
Yeah, I’m really looking forward to it. 😃
Oh, such a fantastic TBR! I can’t wait to read Tess On The Road, it sounds so good and I am in love with this cover ahah ❤ I am currently reading This Savage Song and LOVING it, so… I'm guessing that Our Dark Duet will soon be on my TBR as well ahah 🙂 Happy reading!! 😀
I know, I am completely in love with the cover for Tess of the Road!! ❤️ ❤️
