Top Ten Books on Our Winter TBR List


To learn more about Top Ten Tuesday or see the future topics, click here!

With this cold it already feels like it's winter already, but the season is still on its way... Here are some books we're most excited to curl up with under a blanket, with a cup of tea on the side :)

Daisy says:


Taste of Darkness by Maria V. Snyder: I just love Maria V. Snyder's books and this series is no exception! I really need to know how THINGS WILL BE FIXED! Because they need to be fixed or I will never forgive her...

The Lost Sisterhood by Anne Fortier: I LOVED Juliet and I'm so excited that she has a new book coming out!!

The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski: I cannot wait to read this! And the cover is so pretty!

Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy: I usually don't read books dealing with disease, but this sounds so good I can't resist! I think it'll break my heart though...

Diamonds and Deceit by Leila Rasheed: I devoured Cinders and Sapphires and can't wait to read the sequel! This will make my historical fiction loving heart happy :)

Jen says:


Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy: I will read this book this winter. I started it a few years ago but put it down for another book...and never picked it back up.

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein: Got this from the library but was super busy the week and came in and had to return it before finishing.

Just One Year by Gayle Forman: I've been looking forward to reading this and still haven't gotten a chance to pick up a copy! I've been slacking.

The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly: This is one of those books that has been sitting on my bookshelf unread for too long.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman: The only Neil Gaiman book I've read was The Graveyard Book and really want to read another one of his books.


What books are on YOUR to be read list this Winter? Have you read any of ours?

  1. Nice lists! Jen's picks look like mine - books I've been meaning to read forever but haven't gotten to yet. I will end up reading THE WINNER'S CURSE, though - that looks great!

  2. Great lists! Hope you enjoy Anna Karenina and American Gods Jen! :) And Daisy, I had no idea that Anne Fortier is coming out with a new novel--I loved Juliet too xD *scurries off to check it out on GR*

  3. I just love listing TBR:s…. But it's another thing actually sticking to the list ;-)

  4. OOO The Winner's Curse! Rose Under Fire! Great picks

    I accidentally put the wrong link into the Linky! The first Gillian @ Writer of Wrongs accidentally goes to a Goodreads link instead of my blog. I don't know how to/if I can fix that, though

  5. I'm afraid that I haven't read any of the titles in your list but I would love to read Anna Karenina and American Gods. :) It is so apt that I was just compiling 10 books that I should have read a long time ago and it ties so nicely with this week's TTT theme.

  6. I love your guys' TBR lists! Good luck with Anna Karenina, Jen!

  7. American Gods was my very first Gaiman book! He lets his weird out a little bit more in his adult books than his YA ones, but otherwise very similar in style and tone. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  8. I hope you enjoy Rose Under Fire, I loved it and would like read more of her books.

  11. Great List! I've read just one from your list (Anna Karenina) but it was a long time ago and it was required for school...

  13. Can't wait for Taste of Darkness either!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Good luck to Jen on Anna Karenina. I finally read that one earlier this year. It is a BIG book! :-)

    I've had Neil Gaiman's American Goods on my list awhile now. Didn't make the cut for winter, maybe SPring?

    Happy reading!

  15. I haven't had a chance to read Taste Of Darkness, but I'm really looking forward to reading that whole series! I'm also looking forward to Side Effects May Vary. Great picks this week!

  16. I really like your list! If you like Maria V. Snyder, have you read her Poison Study books? This was a fun theme to pick some books for- I enjoyed it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Great picks! I am currently reading Just One Year and it is pretty good. The Winner's Curse is one I'd really like to read as well.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Whew! I did both last weeks picks and this weeks (since I missed last weeks TTT)

  19. Great list! He didn't make my winter list, but I really need to read me some Neil Gamon this year. I read Anna Karenina last year. Good luck with that one; it's a hard read. I am glad I got through it, though. For bragging rights, if nothing else. :D HappyTuesday!

  20. Yes! I too am super excited about The Winner's Curse. And also Rose Under Fire but I'm worried about the ensuing tears.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I started reading Anna Karenina a while ago and never finished it either! I hope I can start it (and finish it!!!) soon! (:

  22. The Lost Sisterhood and Rose Under Fire look amazing. I'll need to add them to my wish list.

    ReplyDelete
  23. So many good books to read this winter! At least the cold weather is a good excuse to curl under a blanket with a cup of tea and a good book :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. People either love or hate American Gods so I hope you love it! You should also try Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. It's my favorite by him! And if you like audio, Neil Gaiman also narrates it!

    My Top 10

  25. I'm looking forward to The Winner's Circle, too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. American Gods is good, but very different from The Graveyard Book.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ohh.. I still have to read Just One Day by Gayle Forman. Can't wait to read Just One Year too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. This makes me so excited about deciding what to read in my free time at winter break!

  31. Nice choices! I'm a bit late to the party today -- my post went up at midnight, but I didn't get my link up until this evening. I need to try some Maria Snyder, and I loved Gaiman's Stardust but need to read some of his other work. I've got a mix of already-published and coming-in-January-or-February titles on my TTT list.

  32. Wow! So many people with lots to read! Love the Top Ten Tuesday, thanks for putting it together.

    Now I am going to go curl up with my book and a blanket, it is so cold here! Brrr

  33. I hope you enjoy American Gods! I did, but liked Anansi Boys even better.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ah super excited for the winter holidays so I can read all these!! Not that I really ever end up reading my TBR books, but I really hope I get to the ones on my Winter TBR this time!! Awesome TTT, loved it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I cannot wait for Winter Break from college so I can just start reading all the time! I want to read Anna Karenina so badly. I absolutely loved the movie and the way it was filmed!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I need to read all these books! I haven't been reading lately! This is good motivation!

    ReplyDelete
  37. American Gods is so good! Especially if you enjoy different mythologies. It does take a bit to get into it though. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I also added mine here. Not sure whether I'll finish them all this winter because I often get sidetrackted by other books. ;-)

    Thanks again for the opportunity to find other blogs and, most of all, books.

  39. Hey, just entered my link for "Top Ten Tuesday". I've been reading 'Top Ten Tuesday' posts for a while now so when I got my own blog "Loving the Language of Literacy" I (of course) had to enter. I already have the rest of 2013's posts scheduled
