Top Ten Books on Daisy's TBR List for Winter


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.


I had SO much fun making this list for fall that I immediately claimed the winter edition as well :)
Because I am already pining for some debuts and sequels and such, I am going to spotlight 10 books that have a release date between December 22nd and March 21st. Feel free to just list the books you intend to read during winter!

1. Hallowed by Cynthia Hand: Well OBVIOUSLY this one would be on the list! I LOVED Unearthly and have pre-ordered this one, I'm avoiding reviews until I've read it myself, but TEAM TUCKER!

2. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi: 2012 debut author, I have heard many, many good things about this book and have also pre-ordered this one :) And it especially makes me happy to hear one blogger describe it as a 'dystopian meets high fantasy' because I LOVE dystopians AND fantasy!

3. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver: I am betting this one will be on a lot of lists doing new releases ;) I thought Delirium was amazing and that ending killed me! So yes, I am insanely jealous of those lucky bloggers who got an ARC! I am so reading this one the second it gets out!

4. Fever by Lauren DeStefano: another one probably featured on more lists than just mine ;) I absolutely loved Wither and this have another jealous moment, the same as for Pandemonium. If you haven't read Wither, you should! It's amazing!

5. Midnight in Austenland by Shannon Hale: me and Jana are fans of Austenland, she reviewed it on this blog, so when I saw this one coming out I KNEW I had to read it! Fans of Jane Austen and P&P: Austenland was such a cute read and I'm betting this one will be as well!

6. Everneath by Brodi Ashton: another 2012 debut author! This book sounds insanely amazing and I can't wait to read it! Oh, and I have some serious cover love for this one!

7. Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen: this one sounds fabulous as well, with Scarlet (I'm thinking Will Scarlet in the original story) actually being a girl instead of a boy! I LOVE the tale of Robin Hood, so I think this will be just the book for me.

8. New Girl by Paige Harbison: a YA retelling of Rebecca, you better believe I'm gonna be reading this!!

9. Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood: I love witches! This book sounds like all kinds of awesome! It's described as A Great and Terrible Beauty meets Cassandra Clare, and while I haven't read any of Ms. Clare's books (I know, I suck), I loved the Gemma Doyle books, so I think this will be good :)

10. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows: you could read this book for the fabulous cover alone. Seriously, it's so pretty! Another 2012 debut author :)

10+1. Tempest by Julie Cross: Yes, I cheat, it's what I do ;) (but really, I will be reading a lot more than just 10 books, so I'm allowed) Time travel is hard to do well and I'm looking forward to see Ms. Cross' take on it! And can you say cover love? ;)

So, that's my list, there are a lot of 2012 debut authors on them and some sequels and such. Let me know if I missed any! And leave your link below so I can check yours out!

  1. Unearthly, Wither, and Delirium were three of my TOP reads in 2011, so I am definitely looking forward to the second book in each of those series, too! I can't wait!

  2. I can vouch for the awesomeness of Everneath, Incarnate, and Tempest! I read them this month, and was blown away by how good they were! :)

  3. First I must read Delirium and then Pandemonium. Intriguing list.

    ReplyDelete
  5. PANDEMONIUM YES!

    and oh my goodness New Girl sounds awesome. such a good list.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Yes to Hallowed! Unearthly was one of the surprising and good books of my reading year! You've got some titles I will have to check out. Great topic as always :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yay, you mentioned Midnight in Austenland! I read it last month. :) Very cute! Your list is amazing. I'll just say ditto to pretty much everything you said!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Your list is absolutely incredible. Our lists were very different outside of Fever, but you listed a lot of books that I am looking forward to. Here's to a happy winter reading season. :) Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Ha! I had five of the same books and I wanted to add an extra - Pandemonium or Bloodrose! But I forced myself to stick with ten. But this week was sooo hard!

    I'm super excited about the new Paige Harbison, too.

    Great winter reads!

  10. This one was so hard for me! There is so much I want to read and looking at your list makes me remember ones I didn't put down, ha! This was a fun one (not that they all aren't). :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm really looking forward to reading Under the Never Sky and Scarlet.

    ReplyDelete

  14. Cannot wait for Hallowed to get here and have been surprised that it did not appear on as many lists as I thought Also very anxious to read Pandemonium. Hope you enjoy all your winter reads.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Incarnate and Under the Never Sky are also on my top ten list. They both sound absolutely incredible and I'm dying to read them!! Great list! Born Wicked and Everneath are also books that I'd love to read at some point!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yay - so glad I found Broke&Bookish, definitely one of my new favourites. At least during the holidays, until I start fourth year of med school...

    ReplyDelete
  17. i'm behind! i didnt finish delirium yet! i need to get on the ball

    ReplyDelete
  18. I confess myself clueless on all the books mentioned here but with all the rave about Delirium, Unearthly, etc. I'm gonna have to check them all out! My TBR list is growing with every Tuesday! Love it. : )

    Also, Rebecca is an all-time favorite so New Girl is the first thing I'm getting my hands on after the holidays. I love retellings.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Great TTT, a few made it onto my list as well!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Rebecca is on my list so New Girl immediately catches my attention. Like a couple of other commenters, I'm not familiar with many of these titles so I'm feeling even more behind on my reading than I was before :( Oh, well...more books for the WishList ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Pandemonium!? I want to read that one too. I just linked up my first top 10 tuesday post.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I can't wait for "Midnight at Austenland" either. Enjoy your reading.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love how every single book you listed is on my TBR pile for next year. I hope I get a chance to read all of them!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am in the middle of Unearthly right now, so Hallowed had to be on my list.

    This is my first Top 10 post. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  25. While a lot of these are not really up my alley, I did add Austenland to my BN Wishlist! Looks great!

    And I can totally relate to falling in love with covers. This happens to me all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oooh, another Austenland book! I am mostly a library reader, so I'll have to wait a while to try most of the books on your list. But what a fun blog! It's my first week, too!

    ReplyDelete
  27. The one book I'm anxiously waiting for is Broken Harbour, by Tana French. Great site!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I had to make two lists, one of ARCs I *have* and one of books I don't have but want :) I also have HALLOWED, PANDEMONIUM, FEVER, MIDNIGHT IN AUSTELAND, and SCARLET on my list. They're not on my list, but I have ARCs of UNDER THE NEVER SKY, NEW GIRL, and TEMPEST to read. And I've already read INCARNATE and ADORED it. A favorite book already!

    ReplyDelete
  29. So....your list could totally be my list! All of the books you listed are books on my TBR pile as well, especially Scarlet and Tempest. Can't wait for those. Hooray for there being too many good books around that none of us can keep up!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow! GREAT choices - just added 3 books to my TBR: Under the Never Sky, Scarlet, & Born Wicked. They all look fantastic. Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Your #2 sounds great and I'm adding it to my to-read list!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Though I didn't include it on my Top Ten list, I'm so stoked to read Scarlet. I'm a little wary of Under the Never Sky, because it sounds very similar to every other dystopia being released these days, but I've added it as well. Yay, 2012 debuts!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I can't wait for Pandemonium. Great list!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I hope you enjoy Everneath! It was my favorite read this year. I can't wait until its released so everyone can have a chance to read it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I totally forgot about Fever. It's probably because I don't own it yet. I'm sure it'll be bumping one of the books I have now off my winter list.

    ReplyDelete
  36. ooh good list. i am dying to read scarlet as well. i love the cover.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It sounds like a great list but I'm particularly intrigued by "Scarlet"!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've heard of most of these, but not Scarlet and New Girl. This is a great list!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I absolutely loved Under the Never Sky!

    ReplyDelete
  40. This is such an awesome meme! I just started a blog and was looking for fun things to post and this is perfect! I can think of a lot of good top-ten lists to post on it. Thanks for hosting this meme!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Is anyone else highly anticipating The Fault in Our Stars? That was number 1 on my list!

  42. The Austenland books have been on my list for awhile, especially since the BBC mini series. Love it!

    Awesome list.

  44. I loved AUSTENLAND. Didn't know there was a new book on the horizon. Great news!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Under the Never Sky, Incarnate, and Everneath were on my list too! I almost added Tempest. I haven't read Delirium or Wither yet but I already look forward to Pandemonium and Fever!

  46. Oh, another one I just thought of: Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter. That one comes out March 20th. I'm so excited for it! Any other Gallagher Girls fans out there?

  47. Great list! I haven't read any of them but they sound interesting =)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I can't wait for Pandemonium! So excited!

    Also, like a doofus, I put the incorrect link up for my TTT. I filled out the linky form again with my correct url-hope that's ok!

    ReplyDelete
  49. It was so hard to just pick ten releases! And that's not including all the ones I already have on my shelves. Great selection though :D

    ReplyDelete
  50. Under the Never Sky is on my list, too! I really liked this topic!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Scarlet sounds interesting, but I wonder which view of Robin Hood it's going to use.

    Happy Tuesday, everybody!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I can not wait to read Hallowed either! It looks so good!

  53. Tempest was an amazing read! Kind of a new spin on time travel, with just enough romance to whet my appetite for more, and a mystery to boot. Just...emotional and wonderful.

    And YES to Pandemonium. I am going crazy waiting!

    My Top Ten

    ReplyDelete
  54. I can't wait to read Lauren Oliver! I've heard wonderful things and am hoping to read Delirium soon. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I forgot that Pandemonium's release will be in the winter -- next March feels like SO LONG! I, too, am envious of the bloggers who get to read this early. Although, the book is being released on my birthday, which is a pretty cool gift itself. My husband will be there to pick up a copy for my b-day!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Great list topic :) I've already looked at a bunch of different bloggers' list.

    ReplyDelete
  57. This is my first time to join. And I had fun making my TBR list. See you at my blog!

  58. Gosh, just reading some of these lists brings back great memories!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Woo! I had to do this after seeing everyone else's and I had the most fun ever going back and thinking about these books! I really hope someone else remembers Puddleglum and I would be SHOCKED if anyone else read Katie's Adventures at Blueberry Pond. :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I am a part-time blogger/reviewer over at Wastepaper Prose, but I posted my Top Ten via my personal blog. I just felt inspired to share. This was so much fun :D

    ReplyDelete
  61. Great list :) Under the Never Sky is one of my all-time favorites - and I have to add that there's nothing "typically" dystopian at all; if you're up for it, give it a try, you will NOT be disappointed! Veronica Rossi's writing is poetry...thanks for listing some that I haven't heard of, I'll definitely check them out.
