Top Ten Tueday: Winter TBR-ish

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Winter 2018 TBR. I don’t normally make a set TBR list because I usually don’t stick to it. But there are several books and series I want to try to read over the next few months. Here are ten.

Grisha trilogy and Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo: It’s been a while since I read both of these series and with the upcoming release of King of Scars, I think it’s the perfect time to dive back into the Grishaverse. I hope to reread all of them before the end of January.

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss: This book has been on my list for far too long, and I finally have a copy of it so I can take as long as I need to read it. I was going to start it in November, but my plans were sidetracked by library books, so I hope to start it sometime soon.

Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness: I read The Knife of Never Letting Go about a year and half ago but didn’t read the rest of the trilogy. I want to finish the series before the movie comes out in March.

East and West by Edith Pattou: I read East ages ago and never thought there would be a sequel. I want to reread East this month and hopefully read West as well.

The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater: I found used copies of this series at a library book sale and wanted to read them immediately. As always, my reading plans were foiled by other books and they just sat on my shelf. I want to read the whole series soon.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: Since Kingdom of Ash has finally been published, I feel a little more on board to read the whole series. A friend suggested I read A Court of Thorns and Roses first, though, so now I’m torn on which series to start.

The Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner: I should have read this entire series years ago when I read The Thief, but I guess I didn’t realize there were more books. With a new book coming out soon, I want to catch up.

To Best the Boys by Mary Weber: I was approved an early e-copy of this book through NetGalley and have only put off reading it because I’m so excited. Yeah, it doesn’t make sense, but it’s like I’m nervous to read it or something.

Romanov by Nadine Brandes: Like with To Best the Boys, I was approved an early e-copy of this title either but haven’t had the chance to read it. Since it doesn’t come out until May, I think I have some time to read it, but I’d like to finish it before the end of winter.

Warrior Maiden by Melanie Dickerson: This book comes out in February and I was able to snag an early e-copy of it as well. I definitely want to finish it before the release date so I can get a review of it up soon!

What books are you planning to read this winter? Are there any I should add to my list? Don’t forget to join the link-up!

  1. West is on my list as well! I actually just stumbled upon East a couple weeks ago, and I loved it. I also recently finished the Grisha trilogy, and I must admit I liked it better than Six of Crows? Although I think I would have liked SoC better if there weren’t such an insane amount of hype surrounding it. If I hadn’t heard over and over that this was the book that would change my life, I wouldn’t have been so disappointed when it didn’t.

    The Kingkiller Chronicle is great. Reading Rothfuss is a Time Commitment like no other, but it’s worth it.

    • I liked Six of Crows, but I wouldn’t necessarily call it live changing. I had a hard time relating to the characters in Grisha trilogy (except I love Nikolai more than anything else).

      I’ve heard such great thinks about Rothfuss’ writing but so long. XD


  2. Oooh my winter reading plans also involve finishing my reread of the Grisha trilogy and reading Crooked Kingdoms (for the first time tho)!

    And ahhh, I need to reread East sometime too! The new covers of East and West are soooo pretty; I’m really tempted to buy them!

    • SAME. I need to just read it.

      And I remember enjoying East, even though I don’t know why. I have vague memories of the story swirling in my head and that’s about it.


      • I’m both hopeful and worried about East. Not because of the book or the author or anything… but because East of the Sun West of the Moon is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE fairy tale, and I’m afraid that any retelling will mess it up. But because I love the original, I also want to read retellings in case they are also new favorites. :-/

      • I understand that. I have a friend who adores that fairy tale too. I don’t think I’ve read the original, so I don’t know if I can help you on that. 😐
