top ten tuesday: books on my winter tbr

top ten tuesday

Hi everyone! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the awesome blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is an interesting one: Top Ten Books on My Winter TBR. Whenever I make To Be Read lists I always have the best intentions in mind, but very rarely do I end up actually reading all of the books I say I’m going to. So this list is a very loose, non-binding compilation of books that I would like to read in the near future! In no particular order:

  1. Every Ugly Word by Aimee L. Salter
  2. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
  3. Xenocide by Orson Scott Card
  4. The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
  5. The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
  6. Only Everything by Kieran Scott
  7. The Silent History by Eli Horowitz, Matthew Derby, and Kevin Moffet
  8. The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stief Larsson
  9. Landline by Rainbow Rowell
  10. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? What books are on your winter TBR? Let me know in the comments section below!

Yours,

HOLLY

    1. That’s usually the case with me for most trilogies- I like the first and last books better than the middle. I’m eager to see if the same holds true for this one! Thanks for commenting! 🙂

  1. I wasn’t a huge fan of The Girl Who Played with Fire in the end, although maybe it was overhyped? Loved Gone Girl though, you’re in for a treat!

    1. It must be hard for a sequel to follow a fantastic book like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I never usually like sequels as much as the first book, but we’ll see. Thanks for commenting! 🙂

    1. I’m dying to see the movie, but I definitely want to read the book first! I’m waiting for it to get off of the holds list at the library, although I think it might take a while. Thanks for commenting! 🙂

  2. That’s what counts, good intentions. (and having fun making the lists)

    I have Gone Girl waiting to be read too, but it didn’t quite make the cut. Afterworlds was okay, but I didn’t love it. I’m so scared to read the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books even if they’re really good.

    1. haha making lists is so much fun! The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy is kind of unsettling, but I thought it was worth it at least. It’s definitely worth a try! Thanks for commenting! 🙂

  3. I have Afterworlds in my {physical} TBR pile right now. I got it from the library earlier in October, but unfortunately had to return it before I ever got a chance to read it – oops! 🙂 Despite the mixed reviews, I’m excited to get to it; at the very least, it should be a unique read.

    1. That happens to me all the time- I check books out, lose track of time, and then have to eventually check them back out again when I get the chance. It’s a vicious cycle 🙂 I really like a lot of Scott Westerfeld’s other books, so hopefully Afterworlds won’t disappoint! Thanks for commenting!

  4. I feel like I haven’t posted here in a while and boom theme/background change!

    With my already limited time to read all the other books I have, I’ll probably just default to the Gone Girl film instead; which, thankfully, I’ve read numerous raving reviews–so I’m glad it really did it justice! And I’ve also been dabbling with considering Afterworlds. The cover is just so neat to not own a copy.

    Cheers,

    1. haha, yeah I felt like I had to switch things up a bit on here. 🙂 I know what you mean, there’s just not enough time in the day to read everything! I’ve also heard really great things about the movie, so your plan sounds good! Thanks for commenting! 🙂
