Top 10 Books on My Winter TBR List

16 comments
A weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish

I kind of hate these "top books on TBR" posts. I could use them to "ooh" and "ah" over the upcoming new releases; but, inevitably, I wind up guilting myself into using it as a harsh reminder of all the stuff on my shelves I STILL haven't read. Which in turn makes me feel guilty about all the books I've bought or borrowed from the library. And we all know the list won't help anything. I'm going to sit down with each of these books when I'm in the mood for it (or never) and no list will hurry me along.

But guilting from actual people might. Cue guilt-inducing comments from the masses! ;)



You may recognize some of these from my last two TBR lists (1, 2). ...Yep. I think the rest are a mix of giveaway wins, gifts and older or out of print titles I tracked down. ......... Wow, this stuff writes itself. You don't even have to try to make me sound like a horrible reader and/or despicable human being, haha. ;) Just thinking about other people seeing this list has the guilt flowing. Yes! Use the guilt, Luke!

That's it for this round of 10! Thanks for stopping by and check back in tomorrow for this week's Updates! In which I crocheted a ball. Sort of.

  2. I pretty much never read the books I put on these seasonal TBR lists because I'm a mood reader and read what I want, when I want! Haha. So we'll see how well we do this time around. :P

    Stolen Songbird just popped up on my radar yesterday, actually. I have no idea why I had not heard of it before, because it has gotten amazing reviews! I'm excited to see what you think of it. Happy reading!

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one, Jana! It looks like my current record is 4/10 and 3/10. :P

      Hmm, there was a rash of great reviews for Stolen Songbird, but shortly after came the news that its publisher, Strange Chemistry, was closing. I'm hoping it's good, and it looks like SC's parent company, Angry Robot, kept the contract for the trilogy, so Book 2 is set to release in June 2015. :D

  3. What a fantastic list! So many I've been yearning to read:
    - Midnight Thief
    - The Islands of Chaldea
    - Stolen Songbird
    - Mortal Heart

    But out of all the books you've listed, Inhuman has snagged my attention! I feel it is because it has a "video game" feel to it's cover; yummy :)

    1. Thank you, Claudia! I know, they all look amazing. Now I just need the time and the right mood to read them all. Inhuman, huh? That would be one of those gifted books that I really REALLY need to sit down and read already. It does have a video game feel, doesn't it? :)

  4. Over half of those are on my winter TBR, too; not my Top 10 one, but my bigger one.

  5. Marmell's book should be put on my TBR list for sure. Another series I have put off because it is now four books in. And I liked Wexler's other series so I think i oughta consider that one as well.

    1. Marmell's series is four books in already? Huh, I really should start looking this stuff up before I buy the first book. I think I remember Anya really enjoying The Forbidden Library, and if you're in the mood for a Middle Grade read, why not? :)

    1. I know what you mean, Alyssa. I really need to clean out my GR to-read list, especially since that's where I look when I go on book buying sprees. It's probably a good idea for me to only spend money on the books I'm likely to read. :)

  7. Midnight Thief is on my TBR list, too! I just haven't bought it yet. *blushes*

    The Islands Of Chaldea sounds neat. The cover's pretty, too. I might have to look into that one...

    1. No worries, Sara. Your excuse sounds much better than mine. (That would be one of the books I won in a giveaway, so I've had it since July and just haven't read it. *face flames*)

      I want to read The Islands of Chaldea because it's the last Diana Wynne Jones book, and I usually love her stories...but it's the LAST one. :(

  8. Mortal Heart was a wonderful ending to the series and I hope you love it and that you get to read a few of these :)

    1. Thank you! I've heard lots of great things about Mortal Heart thus far and I'm hoping to break my non-TBR-reading streak. :)
