Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we're listing the books that have made it to the top of our Winter 2014/2015 TBR piles.
This topic was actually for Tuesday, November 25. I love creating seasonal TBR lists, but unfortunately I was on hiatus for most of November and missed participating for this one. Because the winter solstice only just happened this past Sunday, however, I think that this post is still timely.
New & Upcoming Winter Releases:
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard —I have a hard time resisting any high fantasy YA novels. Add in mentions of political intrigue and I'm hooked. Every. Single. Time.
Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman — Words cannot express my excitement over the long-delayed publication of the sequel to Seraphina. I freaking loved that book, and will probably do a re-read prior to reading the new installment.
Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay — I've had a difficult time reading anything outside of library books for the past few months, and so I've had yet to read my ARC. But this sounds like something I should theoretically really like, so hoping to get to this one soon!
Owned Older Reads:
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey — I keep putting this story off because I want to spend a snowy day (or weekend) reading this. I think now's finally the time. I will prioritize this within the coming month.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss — Another story I've been meaning to read for ages, and Courtney kindly gifted me a copy for my birthday this fall. I actually got my boyfriend into this series, so it's high time I read it for myself.
Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu — Technically I don't own this book, but my little sister is letting me borrow her copy until I finally do read it. It's very seasonal, it's a retelling of "The Snow Queen," and it's for middle graders. I plan on spending a lazy afternoon sipping hot chocolate and reading this.
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery — Confession time: I've never read this series before. I'm not quite sure how I managed to miss out on this one, especially considering that I did read quite a few children's classics as a child.
Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson & Lauren Myracle — I tend not to do seasonal reads, but I'm making an exception here. This sounds like a perfect pre-Christmas airport read (my trip is today, actually).
The Kiss of Deception by Mary Pearson — I'm not actually sure how much I'll enjoy this one. Based on the synopsis, it has the potential to be something that I love. Really hoping that's the case here!
The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place by Julie Berry — My first (and only) experience reading a work of Berry's gave me one of my favorite reads of the year. I liked the idea of closing out the year with another of her works, but I'll settle for reading this in the early part of 2015 instead.
Please be sure to let me know what books you plan on reading this winter!
