My Top Ten Winter Reads


Before I start, a small plug: this week you can find me over at Jennifer Anderson’s blog, where I’m talking about J.K. Rowling, surviving Australian wildlife, and my love of urban fantasy. Drop by and say hello!

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (a bookish blog hop organised by the Broke and the Bookish) is “Ten Books I Plan To Have In My Beach Bag This Summer”. Of course, it’s the last month of autumn here and thanks, tBatB, for the reminder of beaches when there’s already frost on the ground! *sob*

Still, since summer is so far away and I can barely plan three months ahead, here are the books I’ve got on my TBR pile as winter reads. These are in no particular order, because I am fickle!

I’ve also been reading quite slowly lately, distracted by book releases, edits, and drafting my latest WIP. So the astute will notice that six of these ten books were on my autumn TBR as well.


Winter 2015 TBR 1

From top to bottom:

Darkness Unbound by Keri Arthur

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Fairytales for Wilde Girls by Allyse Near

The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

Hit by Delilah S. Dawson

Winter 2015 TBR 2

The Dream Hunter by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Autumn Bones by Jacqueline Carey

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Every Breath by Ellie Marnie

Three of the ten are by Australian women writers I’ve never tried before; three are by writers people have raved about to me; and the rest are by authors whose other works I love and who I’m keen to read more by.

It’s going to be a good winter.

What are the books on your TBR for the next three months, whatever the season?

PS. I haven’t included them because photos of my iPhone aren’t that sexy, but I’ve been listening to Kim Harrison’s The Hollows series on audiobook on my commute. I can guarantee I’ll get through at least three more of those over winter. 🙂

  1. Oooh, I hope you love Every Breath!! Such great books. ^_^

  2. I absolutely loved The Dream Thieves! I hope you will too. And I really liked Allegiant too -even though many people didn’t. I should have read Eleanor & Park ages ago, it’s been on my TBR for so long…

    I hope you’ll enjoy them all!

  3. The Dream Thieves is great, I hope you enjoy it! I am also planning on reading Allegiant this summer (it’s summer where I am) and I hope I enjoy it, although my sister wasn’t too keen so I’m not sure because we have relatively similar taste.
