Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Might Read This Winter

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

Hey you guuuuyyyyssss! It’s Tuesday. The topic this week is Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR, which may seem a bit early, but not really – I’ve already had to brush snow off my car, so it’s here at least in my neck of the woods. Winter basically lasts from November to April, it’s bullshit. Anyways, here’s some of the books I want to read in that time period.

1. Harry Potter re-read – Yeah, this is happening. Seriously, like starting this weekend. I can’t wait.

2. The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss – Rothfuss is giving us a treat while we’re anxiously waiting for the third book in his Kingkiller Chronicles. This is a short little novella all about Auri, and I’m soooooo excited to read it.

3. The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber – I think this is about religion and space, kind of like The Sparrow, but different. It sounds like something I’m going to love.

4. The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion – This comes out at the end of December, and I SOOOO can’t wait. I absolutely loved The Rosie Project.

5. PRO: Reclaiming Abortion Rights by Katha Pollitt – I think I have this on my Christmas list. If not, it’s going to be one of the books I use my Christmas gift cards on.

6. Saga: volume 4 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples – SAGA! I don’t think needs explaining.

7. Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen – I say this mainly because I got the Kindle version for like $3 and I’ll probably get around to reading it… It’s fantasy, from what I hear there’s a good lady main character. Should be interesting.

8. Captain Marvel comics – She’s gonna have her own movie in several years, so I need to start reading all the comics NOW. I’m really psyched.

9. Authority (The Southern Reach #2) by Jeff VanderMeer – I do want to continue on with this series, so I’ll get this from the library or a Kindle sale at some point.

10. Being Mortal by Atul Gawande – Non-fiction about getting old and the healthcare system and length of life versus quality of life… I can’t wait to read this. I have so many feelings already.

Yeah, I’ll get to all of these by the spring… maybe. What are you looking forward to reading this season?




  1. LOL…I love this – “Winter basically lasts from November to April, it’s bullshit.” Amen to that! I love Winter but only until Christmas, then I’m over it.

    I hope you get to read and enjoy these on your list!! I’ve heard a lot of good things about The Rosie Project and didn’t realize another book was being released.

    Harry Potter – I need to finish this series. AHHH…not enough time! Can I please read all day every day and still get paid?! I need to win the lottery…


  2. Nice list once again, Sarah. And yeah, I hear you about winter being a November-April thing. Not cool, New England. (Or in your case, Not cool, upstate New York.)

    I’m also excited about the Michel Faber book. I thought I’d read it on vacation last week but spent time with other books instead. One of my coworkers just LOVED Pro, so I while I probably won’t read it, I look forward to your thoughts on it. And the Atul Gawande = SOOO good. He’s a smart thinker and a good writer. Our technology has definitely outstripped our hmanity when it comes to end of life care.


  3. Enjoy all the Potters – how many times have you read that series? 🙂 I just finished my first read and it won’t be the last, these books are so cozy. Jan finished yesterday and was genuinely sad and said it feels weird not to have any more Potter books to read.


    1. Ummmm this might be my fifth time reading the series? I’ve lost count. I love my Harry Potter, it’s one of those series that I kind of miss whenever I’m not reading. I really hope JK Rowling revisits the chacters someday in other books or novellas.
