Books On My Winter TBR

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the girls over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic is books on our winter to be read list. These are the ten books I really should read or really want to read!

These Broken Stars Sever Brooke

1. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner: Seriously, is there anyone who DIDN’T like These Broken Stars? If you have seen the early reviews, you know that there is a lot of praise and love for this book. It releases today and I plan to read it ASAP! I’m so ready to love this book, let’s hope the hype for it doesn’t let me down.

2. Sever by Lauren DeStefano: I read and loved the first two books in the Chemical Garden Trilogy but I still need to read the last one. I already started Lauren DeStefano’s newest trilogy, so I should read this one VERY soon!

3. Brooke by Veronica Rossi: Under the Never Sky is one of my favorite series, and one hand I want to read Into the Still Blue like RIGHT NOW, but I also don’t want this series to end. Luckily, I have this novella to tide me over until ItSB’s release. Can’t wait to read it, because I don’t think Brooke was a popular character.

Fangirl Shades of Earth Shatter Me

4. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: This book sounds so amazing and totally something I’d enjoy. Plus, there’s a college setting and that’s something I’ve been wanting to read more of (and not like the typical NA).

5. Shades of Earth by Beth Revis: I love this series and I need to know how it’s all going to end! A Million Suns ended on SUCH a cliffhanger!

6. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi: Okay, Shatter Me has been on my wishlist for ages! I finally bought it a couple weeks ago, and now I can finally read it.

Siege and Storm Days of Blood and Starlight

7. Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo: Shadow and Bone is AWESOME and now I want to read Siege and Storm so bad! I actually bought these two books together, so I have it already. Now just read it.

8. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor: Daughter of Smoke and Bone was so good and Laini Taylor writes wonderfully. I bought Days of Blood and Starlight MONTHS ago & I need to read it soon but this book is so big, it’s kind of daunting.

Tiger's Voyage The Secret of Isobel Key

9. Tiger’s Voyage by Colleen Houck: This book has been the longest on my TBR-pile of all of my books, so maybe I should finally read it? It’s a little sad that I kind of lost interest in this series, but I can’t leave this book unread forever, right?!

10. The Secret of Isobel Key by Jen McConnel: This book comes out December 19th and I plan to read it very soon. It’s set in Scotland, which for me is my main draw. You might not know this, but I’ve fallen in love with Scotland after studying there for a semester, so every book that’s set in Scotland goes automatically to my wishlist.

These are my picks for this week’s topic, let me know what you think!


Book haul October

book haul october

Book haul is the monthly post in which I will show you what books I’ve added to my shelves in the past month. This is inspired by In My Mailbox from the Story Siren. I’m quite aware that we are already a week into November, but I didn’t want to pass on the opportunity to show my October book haul.

The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa: this is the second book of her Iron Fey spinoff series, and I bought it even though I haven’t read the first book yet. I love the original Iron Fey series and Kagawa’s Blood of Eden series so I figure I’m quite safe with buying this one. I’m probably going to end up liking this. And if not, at least I’ll have this pretty on my shelves. Is it weird that I’m attracted by that face? Probably?

Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama: I love the spine for this one! It looks so whimsical and fairy tale like. I have already read this one and I really like it. If you feel let down by YA mermaid books, try this one because it’s the best I’ve read. It’s so different, but in a good way.

Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano: I love Lauren DeStefano’s writing style and I love her Chemical Garden books (although I’ve yet to read the last soon, must fix that soon!) so I HAD to have this new book by her. I read it and I love it, but not as much as her other series. But this hardcover copy, guys, IT IS GORGEOUS. Seriously, so so pretty. I don’t think pictures can do it justice.

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo: After seeing so many positive reviews and book pushing by some of my favorite bloggers, I bought Shadow and Bone. I’m so glad I did, it’s amazing! I IMMEDIATELY bought Siege and Storm after finishing and now I’m going to read it soon.

Kindle books:

These are the books I got on my Kindle. They were all very good deals I couldn’t resist.


Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: I’ve heard great things about Rainbow Rowell’s books and I’ve been meaning too try one of them.
The Geek Girl and The Scandalous Girl by Gina Lamm: This looked like such a cute romance novel, and for just 1.99 I couldn’t pass it up. Definitely going to read it when I need a pick me up this winter.
Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis: I bought another romance book this month, which is not something I usually a genre I buy or read a lot. But this book has been recommended by one of my favorite book bloggers, so I also had to buy this one. I have read it since then, and I thought it was okay, but not great. I don’t think romance really is my genre.

That was all the new books I got last month. Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments!
