Top Ten Tuesday | Winter 2017 TBR (aka the Books I Want to Read but Won’t)


Top Ten Tuesday | Winter 2017 TBR (aka the Books I Want to Read but Won’t)

Happy Tuesday! With Thanksgiving come and gone (hope everyone had an amazing day), it’s time to shift our attention to Christmas. A topic that might show up in some of the books featured on today’s list. 

Broke and Bookish November 28: Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR – Broke and Bookish


(This post does contain affiliate links. Read the disclosure page for details.)

As I’ve already said more than once, anytime I make seasonal and yearly TBR lists, I rarely stick to these lists (despite my best intentions). *thinks about clicking to look at fall TBR* That said, I do enjoy putting together a TBR if for no other reason than to see all the pretty books together. Plus, I get to be reminded of all the books heading my way in the next month or so.

Today we get to look at our winter TBRs. Mine includes some festive novels that ideally I’d like to read because, who doesn’t enjoy a cute little Christmas-y romcom. Others are books on my TBR because they release over the                next few months. Let’s take a peek at the books I’d like to read over the next few months.

1. Pride & Prejudice & Mistletoe by Melissa De La Cruz | A book about mistletoe kisses and Jane Austen? Sign me up. Amazon | Goodreads

2. Death at Thorburn Hall by Julianna Deering | Of course anytime there’s Drew Farthering, I’ll be there. Amazon | Goodreads
  
3. A Cliché Christmas by Nicole Deese | In all likelihood, this book showed up on my list last year at this time, but since I still have not read it (much to my regret), it’s only fitting it again show up on the 2017 list! Maybe this year, I’ll mark it on the “read list.” Amazon | Goodreads



4. Olivia Twist by Lorie Langdon | A re-telling of Dickens Oliver Twist seems the ideal read for these winter months. Amazon | Goodreads

5. The Saturday Night Supper Club by Carla Laereano | Given all of the praise (plus a trusted endorsement) that I’ve seen for this one, I cannot wait to discover what lies inside these pages! Amazon | Goodreads

6. Almost Christmas by Brooke St. James | Again, I have a feeling this one was also on my “best intentions” TBR last year. It still remains on my unread list. Amazon | Goodreads

7. Prince in Disguise by Stephanie Kate Strohm | With its cozy cover and the telling title (bring on all the fairy tales!), this is one I’d like to read even if it requires something else be shoved to the said. (Can you tell I adore fairy tales?) Amazon | Goodreads

8. One Enchanted Noel by Melissa Tagg | Melissa just released her final Christmas novella (of three), and I’ve zero doubt I’ll be enchanted by it. Amazon | Goodreads

9. Love, Life and the List by Kasie West | Since I finally went on a lets-read-all-the-Kasie-West-novels binge, discovering she has another new novel releasing makes me all the more ex cited. Plus, this cover!! How cute is it?? What’s your favorite novel penned by West? Amazon | Goodreads

10. The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright | A debut author with Bethany House, not only does this one look like a classy tale, it sounds intriguing too!! Amazon | Goodreads

These are the books I’d enjoy reading over these long winter months – the books that have caught my eye and if nothing else, will most certainly find a spot on my shelf. (Or most of them will.) Tell me about your winter TBRs! What do you plan to read? What new discoveries have made you excited? Comment down below with all of the bookish chatter – and don’t forget to leave your blog/post links. It may take me the week, but I’d love to visit.

  1. I'm always happy to see Kasie West books on TBRS! I don't know how she keeps releasing books. She's a writing machine! I hope you enjoy these books when you get around to them.

    1. I don't either, Chrissi! She has a steady stream of new novels throughout the year, and however she manages it, I'm one grateful reader. :)

      Thanks - and I'm glad you dropped by.

  2. I didn't add any holiday/winter themed books to my winter TBR. I think I have enough considering my choices for November/December. I'm going to try to read books that I've put off for a while. Have a great week and happy reading!

    1. Sounds like a great plan! I try and do that too, though often my immediate TBR is determined by the review books publisher's or authors send. (Though I do admit, I like to work in a holiday read here and there.)

      Thanks so much for visiting - and same to you! Happy week and reading. :)

    1. Doesn't it? I meant to order it from Amazon the other day, and think I forgot. Oh, well. There's always next time. :D Hope you enjoy if you end up reading - and thanks so much for visiting, Anne. :)

  4. I like your TBR! Especially all the Christmas-y reads!
    For some reason, though, I never like my Christmas-y reads to have actual real pictures / people on the cover? I don't know what it is, but I tend to not pick up those, haha.

    Olivia Twist and Pride and Pejudice and Mistletoe sound like two books I should definitely check out!

    Happy reading! [And good luck with maybe sticking to this TBR? Haha.]

    1. Nothing wrong with that, Kathy! I know lots of readers don't care for models on book covers. I tend to like this style of covers, but I totally understand the reasons why readers don't care for it. :)

      (Despite my best intentions, I rarely read Christmas reads during this time of year. But I try.)

      YAY! Hope you enjoy 'Mistletoe' and Olivia Twist if you have the chance to read them. :)

      ...thank you! I need all the luck. :) Appreciate you stopping by - and happy reading to you as well.

  6. I like festive reads at holiday time and really need to add some to my reading list. The drew Farthering books seem to be humming along, and Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe sounds fun too. So does Saturday Night Supper Club. Love that particular title!

    1. Those Drew Farthering books just keep on coming - and I'm not complaining!

      Don't they? I'm SO excited about 'Supper' (and like you, love the title, too), plus 'Mistletoe' just sounds adorable. :)

      Thanks, as always, for visiting, Greg.

  8. I'm finally going to read Foster Hill. I reserved it from our library. There's a waiting list, so I don't know when I'll be next??? The Saturday Night Supper Club sounds good. I'm adding that one to my TBR list. Thanks for a great list Rissi. :)

  14. Oooh, I think you'll love A Cliche Christmas when you get to it, Rissi! It's so good! I think I need to re-read it...maybe this year? :) We shall see!

    I totally need to read more Kasie West... I have several of her books (a couple on the Kindle and one on the shelf), but have yet to finish one. Eep!

    I love your other choices too! The Saturday Night Supper Club, Melissa Tagg's new book, The House on Foster Hill, all look really good. :) Happy winter reading, friend!

    1. I really enjoyed Nicole's September release so I'm definitely looking forward to 'Cliche,' Amber. Not only does it sound adorable - it looks it too! :)

      Kasie's books are adorable! I have 2 or 3 left to read not counting this new one that releases in a couple of weeks. Let me know what you think when you read them.

      YAY for Melissa Tagg (her books never disappoint); Carla's sounds fabulous; and of course, I'm really excited about Jaime's too!

      Happy winter TBR-ing to you as well - and I'm SO glad you stopped by, friend. Thanks!

  15. Olivia Twist and Saturday Night Supper Club made my list too. Nicole Deese' Christmas story is so cute!

    1. YAY! So glad to read all the good thoughts for Nicole's novel; I know I'll thoroughly enjoy it. Bet we'll both enjoy 'Supper Club,' and Olivia Twist; they sound too amazing for the result to be anything less. :)

      Thanks, as always, for visiting, Brittaney.

    1. Kasie West's novels get all the good cheers. They're simply THAT adorable.

      Right? I'm really curious about 'Mistletoe' - plus it seems like the ideal read for this time of year.

      Thanks, as always, for visiting, Lindsey. :)

  18. Yeah, I don't usually do well when I make reading lists but they are fun to look at, I agree! I also really want to read as many Christmas themed/festive books as I can!!
    I'm mostly hoping to finally get to some books that have been out for a bit and I own, but just never got around to reading like Strange the Dreamer, etc.

    1. Well said. Reading lists ARE fun to look at. I try not to torture myself (meaning I haven't even taken a look at my fall TBR).

      YAY for Christmas novels. They're the best this time of year.

      Good for you. I need to start reading more of the books ON my shelf rather than continuing to collect NEW books. Someday I'm determined to find that balance. :)

      Thanks so much for visiting, Lauren!

  19. A Cliché Christmas has been on my TBR since last year, too. I'm hoping I'll be able to get to it this year. I loved The House on Foster Hill. Very mysterious!
    Have a great week! :)

    1. Cool! Here's hoping we both get to 'Cliche,' Ashley - and that we enjoy!

      So glad to hear you enjoyed 'Foster Hill.' It's one of my next two reads, so I'm excited!

      Thanks so much for visiting. :)

  20. Lovely list!!! I totally understand carrying books over from LAST winter.... that's my reality. We both have Carla Laureano's and Jaime Jo Wright's books on our TTT lists! I focused mostly on books releasing early 2018 + a few I hope to get to early next year. I didn't list my immediate TBR, which includes a few review books and all things Merry! I WILL be reading Melissa Tagg's this month. :)

    1. OHMYGOODNESS! Yet another thing we can relate on: this is so much too.

      YAY for shared anticipated reads. I'm excited about BOTH of those.

      Nothing wrong with your focus - there are plenty of early 2018 releases I'm excited about. But in retrospect, I'll confess. I'm glad I didn't consider those (imagine how long this list would be then!!).

      I started Melissa's and then had to read something else, but I just know it'll be amazing. :)

      So glad, as always, you stopped by, Courtney.

  23. I'm the worst when it comes to sticking to TBR piles too, it's because I'm the biggest mood reader ever, but I really am going to try and stick with my list, as I've been meaning to read some of these books for the longest time!

    1. Selfishly, I'm SO glad I'm not alone. :) I do try and stick to my TBRs, but rarely do I accomplish this. Still... I do enjoy these seasonal TBRs.

  24. This is a great list- so many holiday-type books too that will be perfect for this time of year! I feel you too, I am the worst at TBRs unless I *have* to read stuff for reviews!

    1. Same. If I have books for review, those are forever and always priority. Still... someday I will read all of these - and I know they'll be lovely. :)
