Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. There is a new subject each week and this week's topic is "Top Ten Books on My Winter TBR".
Here are some of the books I'm hoping to tackle this winter. The ones I am most excited about are Cress, The Lowland, City of Jasmine, and Attachments. My sister said The Lowland is amazing and it has received many positive reviews. I have also loved both books by Rainbow Rowell that I've read so I am eager to try Attachments, her novel for adults. I will definitely be reading Me Before You as it is a book group book for next year.
I am less certain about Rebel Spring and A Clash of Kings. I liked Morgan Rhodes's debut, Falling Kingdoms but I'm not sure if I am invested enough to pick up the sequel yet. I also am a little intimidated by the next book in the A Song of Ice and Fire saga. I liked A Game of Thrones and I even watched the second season of the show which is based on A Clash of Kings but I have to be in the right mood for it.
Cress by Marissa Meyers
I read a sampler of the first few chapters and I was hooked right away. I can't wait to find out what happens to Cinder and Scarlet and to find out more about Cress.
The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri
I love her writing style and this book has received high praise. I have equally high expectations for it...
City of Jasmine by Deanna Raybourn
I am really intrigued by this one with its historical setting, adventure, and female pilot protagonist.
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Another retelling of Beauty and the Beast but with a twist. I am looking forward to reading this soon.
Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen
I mostly love her books so I am pretty sure this will be an enjoyable read.
Me Before You by JoJo Moyes
Me Before You has such an interesting premise. Hopefully it will be a great book for discussion.
No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale
Murder in 1980s Minnesota with a teenage sleuth. Sounds like fun plus I love the cover :)
Alienated by Melissa Landers
What made me want to pick this up is the addition of humor and the idea of an alien as a foreign exchange student.
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
This looks like such a cute story and given the way that I feel about Eleanor and Park and Fangirl I just know I will love Attachments. I may keep this for February as a good Valentine's Day read.
Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes
A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
