Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR

Posted December 9, 2013 by Bonnie in Top Ten Tuesday / 16 Comments


The astronomical winter (Northern Hemisphere) 2013 begins on
Saturday, December 21 and ends on Wednesday, March 19

Ahh, winter. There’s nothing better than curling up with a big cozy blanket and a good book. I love reading year round, of course, but winter reading feels so indulgent.

My owned books are quite the neglected bunch. One of my resolutions of 2013 was to work on reading owned books more but it was kind of a big failure. I even had a ‘Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read In 2013’ which I read 3 of. It seems like I do these lists and end up getting so distracted before I know it it’s December and I’m re-evaluating my failure to fulfill my resolutions. But I’m obsessed with lists and therefore must keep trying so this list is a combination of books I already own and upcoming ARCs that I’d really love to read sooner rather than later.

Bronze Gods (Apparatus Infernum, #1)Steelheart (Reckoners, #1)Antigoddess (Goddess War, #1)

Bronze Gods (Apparatus Infernum #1) by A.A. Aguirre
Steelheart (Reckoners #1) by Brandon Sanderson
Antigoddess (Goddess War #1) by Kendare Blake

BreadcrumbsThe Lifeboat

  1. I definitely want to try and read more books from my own tbr pile too this Winter! You have some great reads to look forward to Bonnie, I am extremely excited about reading The Winner’s Curse, so really can’t wait to hear your thoughts! I’ve also heard some great things about Breadcrumbs and Bronze Gods too! Happy reading! 🙂

  2. I didn’t care for The Lifeboat, but I always feel like I am in the minority on that one. I’m curious to hear you take. I didn’t make a list today, but I think the next EIT comes out soon, right?

    The amount of books I own but haven’t read is embarrassing. It’s perpetually on my list of things to do.

  3. You know I loved Aguirre’s Jax series so I may be a bit biased when I tell you that Bronze Gods is really, really good. I flew through that book in one sitting.

    I own Steelheart but I’ve yet to read it. I definitely will sometime early in 2014. Maybe a readalong?

    Breadcrumbs is adorable. It may be my favorite illustrated MG. Just so adorable and cute and clever.

    The Winner’s Curse is on almost every one of my friends TTT. That book has so much hype it is INSANE. That said, everyone seems to love it, too. Hooray — maybe for once the hype won’t lie to us?

    Dear Killer looks like a YA Dexter hybrid? Kinda? Or maybe that’s what I want it to be?

    These all look good — I haven’t heard of the last three so I am off to GR.
