This week’s topic: Winter TBR!

I am the worst with TBR lists. Honestly, any kind of pressure puts me off reading a book. I’m the ornery teenager in English class. But there are so many books coming out this winter that I KNOW I need to get to because they’re going to be amazing. Seriously, Winter 2015 is shaping up to be awesome. Here are the books Lyn and I are looking to get to in the coming months.

Bekka’s Picks

1. For Real by Alison Cherry. This is about two sisters who go on a reality television show similar to The Amazing Race. It sounds like so much fun and I will definitely be my pick when I’m in the mood for a contemporary.

2. This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. I loooooved These Broken Stars and This Night So Dark. I grabbed this at BEA but I’ve been nervous about reading it because it’s about totally new characters. I’m excited for what I know will be a beautiful romance, but again, I miss Lilac and Tarver!

3. The Ghosts of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick. Is this really that surprising? I’ve loved ever Sedgwick book I’ve read so far, so of course I’m excited for this!

4. Fairest by Marissa Meyer. I really, desperately wanted a novella about Queen Levana, my favorite character outside of Cress and Thorne. I was FLOORED when Fairest was announced as a full novel available in hardcover. There are just no words. Wishes do come true.

5. The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski. Depending on the kind of time I have, I will probably be reading this next. Wasn’t the BIGGEST fan of The Winner’s Curse but with an ending like that, how could I not want more from this series?

Lyn’s Picks

1. Snow Like Ashes by Sarah Raasch – The name says it all! This one looks like an idea winter pick.

2. Dreamer’s Pool by Juliet Marillier – I have waited forever for this one. For this winter, I am going to tear this one up.

3. Beastkeeper by Cat Hellisen – The galley that I must have read for next year. It looks cute!

4. The Martian by Andy Weir – I bought it for my sister, and now, she wants me to read it next. It sounds really interesting, and the movie is on the way, so why now?

5. The Young Elites by Marie Lu – This one just screams “Cold Day Read!”

  1. I totally forgot to put The Winner’s Crime on my list! I have heard that this book is a real emotional roller coaster, and being such a fan of emotional reads, I can’t wait to give this book a go! Snow Like Ashes also made it to my list too, here’s hoping we both end up enjoying it. Happy reading!

  2. I’m reading Snow Like Ashes and it is really good so far. I can’t wait to see how it continues because it has serious potential.
    I want to read Fairest as well but I feel like Meyer is just stretching out her series. I started reading Cress and I could only get half way through it because I would literally fall asleep every 30 pages or so. She needs to reach a conclusion soon and another book thrown into the middle of the series might drag it out even further in my mind.
    You both have great lists and I hope you enjoy all of these books!
