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!


November book haul

Book haul

Every first Saturday of the month is the time when I will show you all of the books I have added to my books the past month. These are all the books I added to my TBR-pile in Novemeber!

This month was the month of the Kindle books (some awesome deals I had to take advantage of) and I also went on a shopping trip to the Boekenfestijn (A Dutch book fair with cheap books) where I managed to restrain myself. I’ve been going every year to the Boekenfestijn for the past three years and I finally learned my lesson that I shouldn’t buy ALL OF THE BOOKS just because they are cheap. I still have some books unread that I bought at the first Boekenfestijn I went to! Anyway, here is my physical book haul:


Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys: I’ve been meaning to read this since so long. I really love historical fiction and this book sounds really emotional and just awesome. ALso, I know nothing about this topic so I’m glad I get to read about it and learn a bit more.

Shades of Earth by Beth Revis: I LOVE Across the Universe. I finally read the sequel A Million Suns recently and that one ended on SUCH a cliffhanger. I NEED TO READ THIS. Also yay for finishing a series, because I always forget to buy the sequels unfortunately.

Books bought at the Boekenfestijn
Stay by Deb Caletti: Truth be told, I don’t know what this books is about. I bought Stay mainly because I just want to read more contemporary books and I know that many people have loved Deb Caletti’s books.

Shadows Cast by Stars by Catherine Knutsson: Again, I don’t really know what this book is about. I just got really grabby because I saw hardcover book for SUCH a cheap price. And the cover is so pretty!

Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer: Finally, a book I know what it is about, LOL! There are actually quite a few people who didn’t like this, but I just had to give it a try, especially for such a cheap price.

Kindle books

World After One & Only Brooke

World After by Susan Ee: Angelfall is an AMAZING read, so naturally I had to have World After. I’m so curious what’s going to happen next!

One & Only by Viv Daniels: I’ve heard that this is a New Adult book without the usual cliches. Of course I’m curious because the usual New Adult books weren’t what I wanted for this genre. Really excited for this one!

Brooke by Veronica Rossi: The Under the Never Sky series is one of my favorite series EVER and I loved Roar & Liv, the other novella. I’m really curious about this one, because Brooke isn’t particularly one of the most popular characters. Like Roar, beloved by all: it was kind of obvious to get his own novella.

12177772 12780764

The Transcend Time saga by Michelle Madow: I bought the complete series, because Michelle Madow would donate the money earned by November purchases to the Philippines. That was the extra incentive for me to buy it, actually. I wanted to read this when it first came out, but I had never bought it.

Shatter Me Unravel me

Shatter Me and Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi: I’m so excited to read these! They were both on sale so I had to buy them!

That was all the new books I got this month! Have you read any of these?
