Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR #TopTenTuesday

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, they post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!

Today's list is Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR. I know it's technically still "fall", but our temps and the snow tell me that winter is here now. So, here are books that I'm hoping to finish by the end of the year. Now I realize this will be an impossible feat! Maybe if I quit my job now and send the kids away and lock myself away and do nothing but read...

So, what books are on your winter TBR? Please let me know in the comments, or leave me a link to your blog post if you are also participating in the meme!


  1. That is a huge list! A few I have read and loved, like Sever and Between Shades of Grey, a few on my future read list as well. GReat list!
    Check out my Top 10 Winter TBR

  2. When Dimple Met Rishi looks so good! I need to read that one soon.

    Here's my list, if you'd like to check it out:

  3. I like the variety you have! My Book Club just read Salt to the Sea. I listened to it as an Audiobook and it was well done with the different narrators.

  4. Laurie Halse Anderson is an author I really need to read. My co-blogger is a fan, but I have yet to read one of her books. I read The Color Purple in the 90s and the story is so powerful, it has stuck with me all these years. Seriously, I get feels just thinking about it. When Dimple Met Rishi is one of my top reads this year. I have nothing but love for the book. It just made me happy. The Parasol Protectorate is one of my favorite series. Carriger is so good at steampunk and I just loved all the characters so much. I read the Invisible man almost 30 years ago for school. It was one of my better required reading books. I really liked the Fallen books too. Quite a list! I hope you get a chance to read them all.
