What I Want to Read This Winter

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new topic/top ten list and invite everyone to share their own answers. I'm so obsessed with lists - so it makes perfect sense that I'd love this feature!

I haven't quite read all the books on my Fall TBR, but I've come close. I'm blaming it on the fact that this topic is coming a little sooner than usual, so I've had less time to finish my list. But there have also been a lot of books distracting me, so it might be a little bit of that, too...

Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR


1. The Life Intended by Kristin Harmel
This book wasn't on my radar, but I was intrigued by the email I received about it from a publicist. The summary compared it to Sliding Doors and P.S. I Love You, and the ratings were high. I decided to give it a shot!

2. I Was Here by Gayle Forman
Although I hate this cover, I do love Gayle Forman. I have no doubt this will be a moving read, especially because the summary makes it sound like an emotional story. I'm scared of the feelings!

3. First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen
I've enjoyed everything I've read by Allen, so I knew I had to request this one as soon as I saw it on NetGalley. This is a companion to Garden Spells, and I have no doubt I'll love it. I mean, do you see this gorgeous cover?!


4. Jane Austen Cover to Cover by Margaret Sullivan
Y'all, I'm obsessed with Jane Austen... and that includes collecting copies of her novels. As soon as I see a new cover, I've got to own it. So, I feel like this book was basically made for me. It's so gorgeous, too!

5. This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
I was so surprised by my love for These Broken Stars, but I've been dying to read This Shattered World ever since. When Alexa offered me her ARC, I jumped at the chance to read it! It's finally time.

6. Before I Go by Colleen Oakley
This is one of the last books I got at BEA that I still have to read, and it's one I've been most interested in reading. The premise sounds so intriguing (though sad), and I'm hoping it lives up to my expectations!

7. I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
I have heard incredible things about this book, so I was thrilled to get the chance to read this book early. This will be the first book I've read by Demetrios, and it sounds like it just might be the best place to start.

8. The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski
MY PRETTY. I adored The Winner's Curse when I read it earlier this year, so I basically freaked out when Asheley sent it my way! This is at the top of my Winter TBR, but I want to re-read the first book before I do.

9. Every Breath by Ellie Marney
This blog world blew up when this book was released, and I felt like I was reading about it everywhere. I was delighted to win a giveaway for it, and I won't be able to wait much longer before reading it.

Alexa and I have a little something up our sleeve for 2015, and part of it involves this book. This will be a re-read for her, but a first read for me! I can't even believe I haven't already read it. It seems like such a ME book, too.

  1. So many wonderful books you have here. I can't wait for I Was Here, that book sounds so awesome, I hope it will live up to my expectations. I didn't expect much from These Broken Stars either, I only read it because that was the first book I picked up but I ended up loving it! Obviously, I'm impatiently waiting for This Shattered World ever since. I rarely read Adult books but I liked the title of Before I Go, checked it out and it seems like such an emotional read, I'll have to give it a chance. The Winner's Crime must be amazing or else....

  2. Your reading choices for this winter are excellent, if you wanted to know my opinion ;) But really, I'm very excited for all the YA titles you've mentioned here! Most are own my on TBR, but I will say this: The Winner's Crime and This Shattered World are both AMAZING second novels in their respective series, and I fell deeply in love with both when I read them. I'm also really excited to reread the Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, and really hope that you enjoy it as much as I did!

  3. I love the First Frost cover so much! Haven't read any of her books but maybe I should start :) The Jane Austen cover book looks like a lot of fun! Snark and pretty covers, what's not to love.

    I'm hoping to read These Broken Stars this month so I can get to This Shattered World!

    The Winner's Crime!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also EVERY BREATH!!!!!!!! I hope you love it :D I couldn't wait for the sequel so I ordered it from Australia haha. The Aussie lingo is intense at first (I didn't realize how different it is from American and even British English!) but it was such a fun mystery and the characters are awesome. Still need to write my review!

  4. What were your thoughts on The Life Intended? I picked up a copy lately, and while it does sound intriguing and I love the cover, I'm not quite sure I soon I should make time for it either. So if it's one you loved, or one you think I could wait to read, I'd love to know!
