Top Ten TBR Books for Winter (TTT #6)

"Top Ten Tuesday" is a weekly book blogger meme hosted by
This week's list topic is...


1. “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens
I've read this novella before, but I wanted to again, since it's been, like, ten years since I last did. It's just awesome and Charles Dickens is the author all authors should aspire to write like.

2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
Yes! I'm finally going to be reading Harry Potter in January of 2012! HP gets featured more than any other book in my “TTT” posts. I will no longer be in the dark about this series…

3. Halflings (Halflings, #1) by Heather Burch
This is an eARC I just received through NetGalley, so I plan on having the review ready right around release day on February 1, 2012. It sounds really good, which is why I requested it.

4. Borrowing Abby Grace (The Shadow, #1) by Kelly Green
I've read some positive reviews of this series of short stories, and it sounds really interesting. I loved Quantum Leap as a kid/teenager back in the day, and this sounds like a girlie YA version. Love that idea!

5. Crossed (Matched, #2) by Ally Condie
Not a fantasy title, but one of my favorite dystopia series. I bought it early for my mom to read because she is a big fan, but I won't be able to read it until early next year.

6. Hounded (Iron Druid Chronicles, #1) by Kevin Hearne
I've had this book around since last summer and still haven't been able to find time to read it. I'm dying to, though! Reading the prequel made me laugh so hard! I cannot wait. All other books just need to get off my back for a week so I can take care of this one.

7. Soulless (Parasol Protectorate, #1) by Gail Carriger
This one looks so interesting and fun to read, and I've had it since the Kindle sale, which was kind of recent. It's one of those perfect-for-me titles, all historical, witty, and Jane Austen-like. And steampunk!

8. Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1) by Richelle Mead
I obtained this title, or will be obtaining it, from, which is a way to get media by trading your own media for it. Really excited about reading this one, since everyone seems to love it so much.

9. Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2) by Cassandra Clare
As soon as I can get my hands on this title, I'll be reading it! All other books need to shut up when this one comes home because I need to read about my book boyfriend, Jem, and see what crazy things he's going to get caught up in this installment. Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait…

10. Dark Seeker (Seeker, #1) by Taryn Browning
I have an eARC of this book and have been meaning to read it for a while, but my other ARCs keep getting in the way. They need to step-off! Seriously, I can't be the only book blogger who thinks her books talk to her, yell at her, whine, cry, etc., can I? The more I get, the noisier my room gets with all their incessant “Read me! I'm next!” Okay, maybe it IS just me…

So, what are you all going to be reading this Winter?


  1. Have Clockwork Prince on my winter list too. It seems like a long time since I have read any Clare. Enjoy all your reads this winter,

  2. We have a lot of the same books on our TBR! Although mine tends to change a lot based on what other bloggers keep raving about. I still can't believe you haven't read HP yet!

  3. Won't go wrong with Harry Potter and Clockwork Prince ;)

    Totally love your list!

    Here's my Top Ten List
    Jay @ We Fancy Books

  4. Excellent choices! I love the Vampire Academy series so hope you get to it soon :-)

  5. Harry Potter!!! Yay! You will LOVE them. :)

  6. You're definitely in for a treat with the HP books! Wish I could read them all over for the first time :) And I really loved Crossed too.

  7. Have a fun time reading Harry Potter! Though I enjoy re-reading the books, there's nothing quite like experiencing them for the first time :)

  8. Great list! I adored Crossed. Thought it was even better than Matched! I'm looking forward to Halflings as well. Sounds great!

    My Top Ten

  9. I really enjoyed The Vampire Academy! And I'm kind of allergic to vampires ;)
    I still need to read Matched and Soulless... They both sound like books I'd love!
    Hope you have a great winter full of reading!
    -Daisy @ the Broke and the Bookish

  10. I am so jealous you got Halfings! I want to read it so badly. I have Vampire Academy and Soulless in my TBR tower as well. You will adore Hounded! New follower.

    Here's mine:

  11. Oh, some excellent choices! VA and Hounded are some of my all-time favs, so I hope you love them as much as I did.

    I want to read Clockwork Prince, too! I DNF'd the first Mortal Instruments book and haven't gone back to try again, but the Devices books look really I'll give it a whirl, I think. :)

  12. @BJ: I think you'll like The Infernal Devices. Totally different animal from The Mortal Instruments series. I'll be looking forward to your review of the 1st book!

    @Lan: I know, right? I'm going to be reviewing Harry Potter once I read it, and I'm excited!

  13. You haven't read Harry Potter? What are you waiting for! =P
    Hope you'll enjoy it!
    A Beautiful Madness

  14. Great choices! You can never go wrong w/Harry Potter. I love Vampire Academy. Dark Seeker was good. And Abby Grace is on my TBR. And Clockwork Prince? YES, so much!
    You are not the only one whose books talk to you. My books are currently giving me judgy looks.

  15. @Andrea: Yay! I'm not alone in this delusion about my books talking to me, or just generally being personified. LOL.
