TOP TEN TUESDAY | BOOKS ON MY WINTER TBR


This week's Top Ten Tuesday on The Broke and the Bookish is: Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR. This could get seriously out of hand. I wish I could read all ten books at a time, or absorb them by osmosis if I tucked them under my pillow at night!


The Cuckoo's Calling - Robert Galbraith
Girl Walks Into A Bar... - Rachel Dratch 
Killer Instinct - Jennifer Lynn Barnes


My True Love Gave to Me - Stephanie Perkins, ed.
Us - David Nicholls
The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern


Bel Canto - Ann Patchett


In Case of Emergency - Courtney Moreno 
A Thousand Pieces of You - Claudia Gray

Of course, if you ask me again in a week you'll get an entirely different list! What I don't have (yet) is a good, solid stack of seasonal reads. I'd love your suggestions of anything Christmassy or wintery or just cosy and fun to read on a cold day with a hot cup of tea and a warm blanket! Share in the comments!

    1. I'm looking forward to it too - it's pretty much the only fun Xmas book on my radar this year! I think I might try to save it a couple more weeks....

  3. I've had The Cuckoo's Calling for a while now and I really need to finish it, and read The Silkworm. Us and The Night Circus are two that are on my wishlist as well, but I did my TTT this week with books I already own to see if that helps me get through them!

    1. I started The Cuckoo's Calling TWICE and got about halfway the second time, but I kept getting distracted and putting it aside. Then I couldn't really remember what was happening... so now I have to start over. I really want to finish it and read Silkworm, though, because I was enjoying the writing and really wanted to know what actually happened to her! These are books I own too - some were ones I had in a pile on my desk so I wouldn't forget to include them! I know what you mean - I desperately want to get through some of the books I've had kicking around forever and really feel like I SHOULD have read by now (like TCC and The Night Circus!). Heading over to yours now....

    1. I've heard so many great things about TNC - I also read the first 40 pages or so, and loved the writing. I'm a little iffy on the plot - I've heard some people say it didn't quite live up to their expectations - but I think I'm really going to enjoy it! It's got a magical realism vibe to it that works for me.

      Same to you! Isn't it a great time of year to hibernate with a good book?? (Also Harry Potter! I really hope you manage to make it through the rest of the series - and if you haven't already, watch the movies when you're done!)

  5. We have several books in common on our lists. You need to read ATPoY by Claudia Gray. It's fantastic! Happy reading!

    1. I'm so glad to hear it's good! Truth time: I actually just picked it up because I love the cover. I know, I know. But I couldn't help it! Looking forward to it...

      Happy reading right back atcha!

  6. I really want to read The Cuckoo's Calling, it sounds wonderful and that cover is really pretty. The Night Circus has been sitting on my TBR for a while now and I still don't know if I should read it or not, I heard some bad things about it which made my enthusiasm for it disappear. A Thousand Pieces of You and My True Love Gave To Me made my list too! I can't wait to finally read those books.
    Hope you'll enjoy all of these books! Awesome list!

    1. I read about half of Cuckoo's Calling and really enjoyed it - but I got busy then I got distracted, then I kind of forgot who was who and what was happening... so I'm going to start over from the beginning. Which is a bit of a bummer, but I think it'll be worth it. I've mostly heard good things about The Night Circus, and I really liked the first 50 pages or so that I read. Enough to want to keep reading, anyway. It's got a very magical realism vibe, which I like. The writing is evocative and really sets the scene. I'd say give it a try!

    1. On it. I've kind of been saving it, to be honest - I read the beginning and realized that I wasn't going to want it to be over....
