Hi everyone! I hope you’re all keeping warm this far into December!
I know I was supposed to do this week’s Top Ten Tuesday from The Broke and the Bookish, but work got super busy yesterday! Anyways, I TBR means ‘To Be Read’, and this winter I made choices on books I wish I had my hands on, books that I do have my hands on and even ones I have already had my hands on, but I want to read them again! It all counts doesn’t it?
What’s on your TBR list?
1. Ruby by V.C. Andrews
Because I love this series, not as much as the first two that have come before it, but there’s something about this particular series that is calling my name this winter. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve already read this book.
2. Christmas in Seattle by Debbie Macomber
I’ve already read this collection as well, during my internship at Harlequin Mills & Boon, and although I don’t particular like Macomber’s writing style, there’s something special about reading a couple of stories about Christmas that are set in your hometown. It’s impossible not to feel that magic.
3. Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain
I adore all of Chamberlain’s work. Her stories are full of heart, emotion and just enough drama to give my brain a holiday from life. I devour her books and I’m so excited to start this latest book from her!
4. Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
I have just finished the first book in this series and can’t wait to read this sequel in the new year! (Currently my reading challenges are in the way of attacking this book at the moment.)
5. Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler
I’ve been wanting to read this series for a while, but I could only get it by ebook in the UK. I didn’t start it as soon as I returned because not all the books had been published yet. I think I’m waiting to dive in all at once which will be perfect this winter!
5. Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
I adored the first book in this series, Miss Peregrin’s School for Unusual Children, and I seriously can’t wait for this book to be published! The medium use of words with chilling photography kept me engaged and reading throughout the night!
6. The One by Kiera Cass
Like Hollow City, The One is another much anticipated book in 2014 that I simply cannot wait to get my hands on and I wish I had it now!
7. Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor
This book is like The One, they’re both the finale’s in the three book series and I’m looking forward to the publishing date.
9. Mermaids by Patty Dann
I saw the movie adaption two summers ago and fell in love with the story. It’s so family oriented that I feel it would be perfect for winter, but I am disappointed none of my libraries offer this book.
10. Snakeskin Boots by Xara X. Xanakas
I wanted to round off my Winter TBR list with this little gem I came across when searching for a book to finish one of my challenges. Here’s the summary. I believe it explains everything:
“Jeff Cordata has always known wolves can be dangerous. Not that his luck with snakes has been any better. It’s not easy being a wereboa constrictor in a world that worships werewolves.
When the customer he’s been watching for months turns out to be an interested wolf, his first instinct is to flee, but his attraction to Brad Cannidy is undeniable despite the strained relations between their families. Then Jeff’s anaconda ex-boyfriend re-enters his life as a pair of snakeskin boots, the hunt begins for the murderer who is turning weres into accessories, and Jeff will have to decide if a boa and a wolf can really mate for life.”
Are any of these on your TBR list??
There is NOTHING about that description of Snakeskin Boots that isn’t amazing. Were-snakes? Angst? Hot cowboys? THIS IS QUALITY. Please read this and write all about it.
I KNOW RIGHT???? It’s only available in the UK as an ebook, so I’ll probably get it before the end of the year because I still have my bank account open. I’ll report back!
