Top Ten Tuesday: Winter Reads

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

December 4: Cozy/Wintry Reads

This week I’m going to select books I’ve not read but have been holding off for a cold winter night.

Ten books that I held for winter.

  1. The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) Often I will hold a really long book for the dead of winter.  I did so with the Game of Thrones series and it seemed to work out.  I have been meaning to try this one and it is a brick so maybe it would be good winter read.
  2. The Eye of the World (Wheel of Time, #1) Another brick that also happens to be high fantasy.  Hmmm, maybe it is less about long stories but I get in the mood for fantasy adventures when the temps drop.
  3. Interview with the Vampire (The Vampire Chronicles, #1) Starting a new series is another thing I will do in the middle of winter.  I recently brought home almost this entire series maybe I will make this my January read.
  4. The Human Division (Old Man's War, #5) Or finishing a series that I already started.  I read the first books in the Old Man’s War series a couple of winters ago before I burnt out on it a bit.  I could pick this back up and finish it this winter, or maybe not.
  5. A Quick Bite (Argeneau #1) Last winter I started reread a couple of series that I love and if I wanted to go that route then I have been meaning to reread this one for a while now.
  6. Imzadi (Star Trek the Next Generation) I keep meaning to set aside a month and read nothing but Star Trek books.  Maybe midwinter would be a great time to get my Trek on.
  7. Hidden Universe Travel Guides: Star Trek: Vulcan Then again a nice travel book that shows me of places I’d rather be than hip deep in snow.  Like Vulcan ;).
  8. Bloodsucking Fiends (A Love Story, #1) A funny trilogy also might be fun!
  9. Stygian (Dark-Hunter, #27) I’ve also been to catch up on some of my favorite series by my favorite authors.  I keep falling behind in Kenyon’s series maybe winter would be a great time to catch up.
  10. Eve of Darkness (Marked, #1) Wasn’t sure what else to select for the list so I thought it might be fun to add another trilogy to the list.  I have all of these books sitting on my shelf waiting for their turn.

What types of books do you like to read in the dead of winter?

  1. What a great selection! I love seeing Robert Jordan, Anne Rice and Sylvia Day all on the same list. I think I like most to read fantasy books or thrillers in the winter. I find myself more… easily swayed and drawn into worlds when it’s so cold outside.


  2. I’m not much of a season or theme reader, but I have come across a few books from this TTT that I want to read this winter. Also, I want to give Patrick Rothfuss a try sometime soon.
