Top Ten Books on my Winter TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Winter reading!

I don’t usually get a ton of reading time in during the holidays but January is usually a good reading month. I’ve been busy reading Cybils books lately and stockpiling some books to catch up on this winter. Books listed in order of publication date:

1. Champion by Marie Lu – I haven’t had a chance to read this yet and I can’t wait to see how the series ends!

2. Another Little Piece of My Heart by Tracey Martin – This is a rock-and-roll retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. Sounds like such a fun these broken starsread!

3. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner – I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book, and even though I’m more of a casual sci-fi fan I can’t wait to read it. Due Dec. 10th from Disney Hyperion.

roomies4. Roomies by Tara Altebrando and Sara Zarr – Roomies takes place right before college, and looks fab to me. Due Dec. 24th from Little, Brown. 

5. Before Jamaica Lane by Samantha Young – The third book in the On Dublin Street series! Can’t wait to meet Nate and Olivia. Due Jan. 7th from NAL.

6. No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale – That’s a cozy looking book cover, isn’t it? This is a quirky mystery set in the small town of Friendship, Wisconsin. Due Jan. 7th from Harper Teen. no one else can have you

7. A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller – This book sounds really fun. It’s a historical fiction set in 1909 London about a girl who likes to break the rules, and gets involved in the suffragette movement. Due Jan. 23rd from Viking.

8. Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott – I’m a big fan of this author, and have wanted to start this book for a while. It does sound quite heart wrenching though! Due Jan. 28th from Harlequin Teen.

bright before sunrise9. Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith – This just sounds like a strange little book and I like that this author likes to push the envelope. Due Feb. 11th from Dutton.

10. Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt – This book takes place over 12 hours, and is about how quickly life can change and the roles we play. Looks good! Due Feb. 18th from Walker Books.

  1. O H MY GOSH CHAMPION. I hope you enjoy it!

    Great list!

  2. I so want to read Roomies, No One Else Can Have You, and Hearbeat!! Roomies because I want to find more college books that are realistic, No One Else because OMG I love the cover, and Heartbeat because Elizabeth Scott has written some of my most favorite books (like Love You Hate You Miss You)! Cool list 🙂

  3. No One Else Can Have You is so quirky awesome. I was hesitant about it at first but it’s so good!

    Yes, yes, yes, A Mad, Wicked Folly! I am so excited for that one. I requested it from Edelweiss, but I may go ahead and just pre-order a hard copy of it instead. 😀 And I’m reading These Broken Stars right now! I’m only 30 or so pages into it, but the action has just kicked in, so I’m excited to see where it goes.

    Nice list! These Broken Stars is also on my list this week!

  6. Rebecca says:

    I’m also really excited for These Broken Stars! I’ll read anything that supposedly similar to the Titanic, though. I haven’t read Prodigy yet, so I can’t read Champion. I really should finish that series sometime because I remember really liking Legend. Anyways, happy reading!

    1. Lucy says:

      It’s always nice when you can read series books back to back. Similar to Titanic, eh? Now I’m even more intrigued!

  7. I definitely need to read These Broken Stars at some point too!

    Amazing list! Champion is a lovely conclusion to the Legend series, Roomies was fun, and These Broken Stars was AMAZING. I’m also looking forward just about all your picks, especially Grasshopper Jungle and Mad, Wicked Folly.

  24. Another Little Piece of My Heart was such a great read, so fun and I loved the story! I hope you enjoy it as well 🙂 No One Else can Have You is also high up on my wishlist.. I’ve seen some reviews pop up but I’ve tried to stay away so I won’t be swayed. Heartbeat is another one that I’m dying to read as well, I’m loving Harlequin teen’s releases lately! I hope you get all your winter books read and enjoy them 🙂

  27. Loved Roomies. Finished Heartbeat yesterday and… well, I was hoping for a bit more but I’m curious to see what your experience is. So many goodies on this list! I also have A Little Piece of My Heart… I haven’t read Persuasian so I hope it doesn’t take anything away from the reading experience for me.

    Yay for winter reads!

  28. MsJohannah says:

    I need to read those broken stars! Seriously!

  29. Ah!! You’ve reminded me,I still need to post my review for Roomies! It’s a pretty cute read 🙂
    Not even Champion, I still need to read that whole Legend series… I hear it’s fantastic so I’m looking forward to it for sure.

    Great list! I’ve definitely added a bunch more to my TBR pile.. 😉

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT Lucy!
