Top Ten Tuesday: Winter TBR List

Our subject for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, as hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is Top Ten Winter To Be Reads.  This, of course, is not to be confused with my Fall TBRs, the list I’ve barely tackled (it sucks that I need to sleep). So you may see a few repeats from my Fall list because other books have jumped in line ahead of them or because I promised a certain husband that I’d leave him something to buy me for Christmas.  Enjoy.

1. Lola and the Boy Next Door– It’s driving me crazy that I haven’t read this yet because I know I’ll love it. In fact, I already love it.  I probably should have just broken down and bought it, but I’m next in line at the library to borrow it. I’ll probably love it and rush out to buy it afterward and think, “Why didn’t I just buy it the day it came out?” I’ll tell you why: Because sometimes (LOTS of times) I make no sense.

2. Clockwork Prince– You guys, recently I forgot that this book—the sequel to Clockwork Angel– was coming out soon. And then I remembered and had a spazz.  I mean, I think I can sum up my excitement in one word: Will.

3. The Name of the Star– I’ve heard such good buzz on this one.  I have to read it!

4. Shatter Me– You want to know something stupid? I’ve actually recommended this book to people, but I haven’t read it (and I told them I hadn’t, but that I’ve heard such amazing things about it). Alas, I promised to wait until Christmas because no one ever knows what to buy me. It’s on the list.

5. Daughter of Smoke and Bone– I seriously have no idea how I’ve had the willpower to hold out on this one.  Again, I put it on my list for Santa because he never knows what books to get me. IS IT CHRISTMAS YET???!!!!

6. Legend– I know nothing about this book except that I’ve heard it’s good. And that I’ll love it. That’s enough for me.

7. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer– I STILL need to read this. I know! What’s my problem?

8. Saving June- I just started this one and it’s already good. Plus I hear it gets a bit swoony, so I’m pretty excited.

9. Hereafter– This is from a debut author and I promised myself I’d read it this year.

10. Shut Out– Why haven’t I read this? I loved The Duff. Must read.

  1. I see a lot of similarities to my list (posting soon!). I wonder why? LOL. I completely agree on Lola, I’m next in line as well, but I know I’m going to go out and buy it too. Also, Shut Out was cute but let’s just say the characters aren’t the only people shut out. 😛 ~Maggie

  2. Great list. I still haven’t read Clockwork Angel, but I definitely need to because everyone is so excited about the sequel! I also have no idea what Legend is about, but I’ve been seeing it all over the place, so I am quite intrigued.

    • Me too. I’d rather be surprised than read the Goodreads description! If you like The Mortal Instruments series, then you’ll like Clockwork Angel. Actually, I read it before I read any of the MI books. It was excellent.

  3. This is an awesome list which overlaps a lot with mine (still in progress), except for “Saving June,” which I already read via NetGalley, and “Lola” and “Daughter,” which you know I read and loved (particularly the latter). I am keeping fingers crossed that “Shatter Me” and “Mara Dyer” live up to the hype. I already have “Clockwork Prince” preordered on Amazon — woo hoo! Hey, how does one get invited to Galley Grab, by the way?

  4. See, this is why i love coming to your blog because even though we have a few of the same books, you always remind me of several others that i should have added. Like Mara Dyer and Legend.
    That’s one of the drawbacks of being such a book nerd. You ALWAYS find more books that you want to read. 🙂
    Great list, btw. i wanna read Lola like right now!

    • Ha! We are such nerds. I love it. The problem is that I make these lists and then I also go to the library where then I’m reminded of other books I meant to read but have somehow forgotten, so those sneak in there too and then it seems like my list is always growing and never, ever getting smaller. I think that’s a good thing for bookish people like us though. 🙂

  5. I just finished Saving June and it was freakin’ phenomenal. LOLA is one of my *favorite* books. Your list is awesome. You have some great reads coming up! 🙂

    • I’m so excited about Saving June. I have it on my PC right now, which is why I’ve been dragging my feet. (I REALLY need to get an e-reader, but just can seem to motivate myself to do it). I’ve barely begun, but it seems really good.
