Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday, participating book bloggers blog about their top ten lists.


Yay winter reading!

To be honest, I’m not sure what I want to read this winter. So I guess this list will consist of books that I want to read before the year ends.

1. The Boy in Striped Pajamas – John Boyne

*Coughs* Okay I haven’t read this but I really want to and I don’t know it just seems fitting to be on this list. I also know it’s really sad and what’s better than sitting at home during winter break and bawling your eyes out when it’s snowing outside?

2. Between Shades of Gray – Ruta Sepetyas

This book was really popular last year (as in, everybody I saw was reading it), and I, shamefully, grouped it into the Fifty Shades series because of everything I heard about it. I didn’t know what the real titles were so I just assumed the worst. I know better now and will hopefully get to this novel this winter.

3. If I Stay – Gayle Forman

If I remember correctly, this book takes place during the winter. Every time I imagine it, I think of wintery, icy streets and dramatic people staring off into the distance. I really need to catch up and figure out why people love this book so much.

4. Cinder – Marissa Meyer

The cover makes me feel wintery. I don’t really know why, but it does.

5. Me Before You – Jojo Moyes

I’ve been told to read this book by my friend many times. It has allegedly made her cry. I like angsty books.

6. Half a King – Joe Abercrombie

There’s a snowflake on the cover. ‘Nuff said.

7. Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour – Morgan Matson

Just to make the wintertime feel a little warmer. It’s doesn’t look as summery as her other novel Since You’ve Been Gone (which I desperately want to read) but it still looks really cute.

8. My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories
– Various Authors

Well it’s a book centered around the holidays. 12 short stories about the holidays. There’s an icerink on the cover. Clearly, it’s a book about wintertime celebration.

9. All the Light We Cannot See – Anthony Doerr

I’ve heard amazing things about this book and I really want to read it soon.

10. The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August – Claire North

I have it from the library, so why not?
