Top Ten Tuesday: Winter Reading


Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week they are asking us to share: November 25:  Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR.  Now I still have a month to finish off some of my books on the Fall TBR list, but so far I’ve managed to read six of them.  Add in another three that I hope to get to before the end of the year and I think I’ve done pretty good.  Winter is a time of cold and snow here in Iowa and not a lot gets done on the Softa farm.  After chores I tend to hunker down under an electric blanket and one or two cats to spend a lot of time reading.  This year I do have the added distraction of Hulu,  curse you Star Trek shows that I can’t seem to stop binge watching, so we will see how much that cuts into my reading time.  Well we are not here to discuss old sci-fi tv shows, no matter how delightful they may be… Here is the list of ten books I hope to read this winter. (After going through my to-read lists I saw there are tons of books I would like to get to this winter, so this is just a partial list.  I tried to pick some books that might not have made other top ten lists, so depending on my mood I might not get to many of these books, but they are on my radar.)

  1. Bound by Flames (Night Prince, #3) This book is going to be a definite read this winter.  I also just found out that Ms. Frost is going to be adding a fourth book to this spin-off series!!!  Yay, more Vlad!
  2. Crouching Tiger, Forbidden Vampire (Love at Stake, #16)  This is also another lock for winter reading.  It comes out on Dec 31 and is the last book in this long-run series.  Going to be sad to see it end.
  3. Viper (Sons of Sangue, #1)  I know this book has shown up on the list before.  If I keep reminding myself about it maybe I actually get around to reading the freaking book.  It has sat on my home screen on my Nook for ages.
  4. A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1) I’ve talked about this series and how I was saving this brick of a book for winter.  Well its winter.  Time to start it or shut up about it.  I’ve even requested through a book exchange the next two books,  hope it is as good as everyone keeps promising.
  5. Blood of the Demon (Demons of Infernum, #1)  I’ve had this book on my to-read for a long time and just last week I was able to get a copy for my Nook for free.
  6. Blood Trinity (Belador, #1) Can’t have a list without something by Ms. Kenyon…
  7. Storm Front (The Dresden Files #1) I’ve heard good things about this series and managed to get a hold of a copy through, so why not.
  8. Redshirts  This seems appropriate with how much I’ve been watching Star Trek lately.
  9. Earth Girl (Earth Girl, #1)  I’m thinking of having a YA or Library book reading month next year.  Perhaps I will get around to reading this.
  10. Blood Games (Chicagoland Vampires, #10)  Almost time to continue where I left off in this series,  around February I should be able to request this from another library.

There you have it, some of the many books I hope to read this winter.  I look forward to seeing what all made your lists.

    1. Thanks! I will keep that in mind for the Butcher series. That happen to me with the Chicagoland Vamps took several books to get in, but man when I got hooked it ended up being one of my favorites. Will be sure to give it a couple of books if I’m on the fence. Amy


  1. Ohhh, Game of Thrones! I’m over halfway into Storm of Swords now, but I might be taking a break after this one. My ears are wanting to listen to some new voices, haha. I really do love the audio though, so if you can’t get through it reading (like me), consider trying the audio!
