It’s Top 10 Tuesday (hosted at The Broke and the Bookish) and the topic is:
Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR
Sometimes as a book blogger I’ve got so many books I’ve committed to read, that the books I just want to read for fun get pushed to the wayside. That’s why I told myself from December 14 (school’s out!) until January 1, I can read ALL the books I’ve been putting to the side for one reason or another. After making my list, I realized MOST of them are either A) series enders or B) series I need to start. So basically, I guess I’ve been putting them aside, because I don’t want the series to end and/or I don’t want to be addicted to another series that I have to pine over. Oh well, there’s a time for everything I suppose.
Without further ado, here are ten of those books!
Top Ten Books on My December Fun Reads List
1. Crown of Midnight
I pined over this book and then when it finally came, I never got to it. Then I decided it was my reward for making it through this incredibly rough year. It’s actually what inspired me to start this fun reads month thing.
2. The Bitter Kingdom
I admit, I don’t want it to be over. I am in love with this series and I want Elisa and Hector to have a HEA, but I wasn’t ready to say goodbye just yet.
The suspense has been killing me, but I need to re-read the entire series. And I don’t need to be interrupted by Shakespeare and other school work while I’m doing it.
I actually reread Hourglass before it came out so I could be prepared. And then… I got busy. And distracted.
6. The Infinite Moment of Us
I have to admit I coveted this book because of that gorgeous cover. I mean, the book sounds great, but that. cover. I even bought it with my gift card (which I usually reserve for the most special books!) so that tells me I really wanted it. And yet, it remains unread.
I started this book, but I felt bad for only reading recaps of Legend and Prodigy. But then I remembered I just read the books in January and February, so I couldn’t really justify rereading them in the same calendar year. Even Goodreads won’t give you credit on the challenges when you do that. But I started reading and realized, I need to get back into the zone and that means rereading the entire series. So, it was put off.
Everyone keeps talking about how amazing this series is and I love Alice & Wonderland. After I got the ARC for Unhinged, I bought the beautiful hardcover of Splintered and put it on that shelf of books I knew I wanted to read soon!
9. Shadow & Bone
Sadly, this was on my Summer TBR list. I was GOING to read it. And then I didn’t. And then Amazon had a huge sale and I got both for like $6-7 total. So now, I have NO excuse.
10. Cinder & Scarlet
Another pair that was on my must read this summer list. Another pair I never got to. However, I won the pair (signed and everything!) so I have them ready and waiting!
I just realized this is a guilty list. I would have been guilty reading them and not reading them. What a conundrum! However, I own them all, I’m incredibly lucky to have some AMAZING books ahead of me, and most of all, I’ve got them time! This is happening and I cannot wait!
So, that’s it. What about you? What books do you plan to read this winter?
