Baby It’s Cold Outside: Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke And The Bookish and created by the brilliant and beautiful Jamie!!

This week’s topic is Top Ten Books On Your Winter TBR. You guys, I hate leaving the house in winter. It’s cold and snowy and people drive like idiots, especially everyone in my town who owns a pick up truck, I mean hello my front wheel drive CAR can’t exactly go 75 miles on an unplowed road without crashing into a tree, so GET OFF MY ASS. Rant aside, I chose to spend my winter time in the house reading. Here’s just a brief selection of the books on my winter TBR!

1. Game Of Thrones by George RR Martin

George RR Martin Body Count

Winter is coming, betches! Okay, so I cheated on this one because I already started it and got 385 pages in before having to set it on hold for CYBILS. I can’t wait to get back to the Starks and the DIREWOLVES. ILY DIREWOLVES. ILY!

2. Fire by Kristin Cashore

Fire, Seven Kingdoms, Kristan Cashore, Book Cover


I feel SO un-well-read for not having read Fire yet. I KNOW. Everyone I adore has read it and loved it. And I want to be in the in-crowd! Hello, I wear pink on Wednesdays. So I feel like a loser for not having read this yet.

3. Hallowed by Cynthia Hand

Hallowed is the book that I am THE MOST excited to have in my hot little hands. Hello Tucker is the shizzam. I can’t wait to read more about him and pretend that Christian doesn’t exist.

4. Ten Ways To Be Adored When Landing A Lord by Sarah Maclean

So I loved Nine Rules To Break When Romancing A Rake, and you guys winter is COLD here in NY. I need something to heat up my nights!

5. After The Snow by SD Crockett

After The Snow

A winter-y book for winter! So creative I know. But you guys there is an ice age. AND people living off the mutha lovin land. YES. That is my jam.

6. Frost by Marianna Baer

Frost looks like it has NOTHING to do with winter, but there’s a boarding school and my imagination goes wild over boarding schools.

7. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Angieville gave this a good review, and you guys she is probably the BEST book blogger I read. Seriously. If you are not reading her blog you are missing out on gold. I need to read Cinder basically because her review is THAT compelling, even if she doesn’t think it is the best book ever.

8. Fire From The Rock by Sharon Draper

Fire From The Rock

I enjoyed Copper Sun by Sharon Draper and wouldn’t mind delving into more of her work! Plus it’s about Little Rock and integration which I always found interesting.

9. Trapped by Michael Northrop

Trapped, Michael Northrop, Book Cover


You guys, I met Michael Northrop at a signing and he is DA BOMB. I know,90s lingo, but he really is awesome. And this book is about KIDS TRAPPED IN A SCHOOL BECAUSE OF A BLIZZARD. OMG YES PLEASE. Sigh. So much caps lock.

10. Love And Leftovers by Sarah Tregay

Love And Leftovers

I love

Books that are

in verse.

That’s pretty much my lame attempt at VERSING. Authors do it way better and I cannot RESIST a verse book ever. So, you bet your bottom dollar I will cozy up to this with a mug of hot chocolate and my Snuggie.

So, what’s on your list?
