Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Books on my Winter TBR

It’s another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by  The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten Tuesday at The Green Mockingbird

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is all about Winter TBRs. This means I have to set some guidelines for myself. Because I have a continent-sized TBR and a pretty good stack for immediate reading, I’m mostly including books I’m anticipating for early 2018 and a few others I hope to read over the winter break. It contains mostly favorite authors and a few highly anticipated titles by new-to-me authors. So, you won’t find the requisite Christmas novellas here! But, people, I will be reading all things Merry in December, too.

One more note: as I compile this list, I see that my TBR has a TON of historical novels… and that makes my nerdy reader heart happy. Looking at 2017, I read more contemporary than historical, so this trend will be a pleasant switch.

    • Haha! I would be interested in The Saturday Night Supper Club just for the food, but I happened to read another book by Carla that I LOVED so I’m extra excited! Thanks for visiting!

    • That’s SO true!!!! But, reality is I have a few books to get through first, so I will try to be patient! 🙂

    • They are similar! 🙂 Great minds think…. er, read, alike. 🙂 Yes, I’m excited for Impossible Saints! I blame it on Rachel McMillan. She wrote a very interesting and gushing review on her blog that caught my attention. I recommend reading her thoughts (if for entertainment purposes alone!).

  1. These all look wonderful! I already read The House on Foster Hill and it is amazing. I don’t read a lot of contemporary but I think I’ll make an exception for The Saturday Night Supper Club. 🙂 And I must say, the covers are ALL stunning. They just keep getting better! Thanks so much for including A Refuge Assured!

    • That’s good to know about The House on Foster Hill ! And Supper Club just sounds fun . I agree, the covers are a beautiful collection! I’m very excited for yours, too ;). Thanks for visiting!

    • Why thank you!!!! I honestly love both historical and contemporary fiction, but this lineup of historical seems exceptionally promising. 🙂 Happy reading!

  2. Great list, Courtney! It’s hard to pick a favorite cover…they’re all so pretty! But I do particularly like the cover for The Saturday Night Supper Club. 🙂

    I’m eager to hear what you think of The Lacemaker! And I really need to read the first in Roseanna White’s new series soon. I’ve heard such good things!

    Happy winter reading, friend!


    • “back-and-forth-in-time” definitely works!!! 😉 Yes, I like it when that really works well in a story. Rachel Hauck is another author who has tackled that type of storytelling very well. Happy reading to you, Susan!

    • I’m excited to read Impossible Saints!!! The cover is so pretty. I hope you get to read it, too! Thanks for visiting!

  3. Hey Courtney – THANK YOU for including The Lost Castle on your list! (BTW… My TBR list just grew by miles. Ha ha!) Two books I’ve read (and loved) on this list belong to Jaime Jo Wright and Sarah Sundin — but all of your choices are amazing authors and I’ll enjoy reading the rest. Just in case y’all are taking notes! 😉

    • You’re quite welcome! I’m really looking forward to it!

      Oh yay, glad I could add some to your TBR, too! At least I’m not the only one with a towering TBR. And that’s wonderful to know about Jaime’s and Sarah’s. 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to “visit”!

  4. Thank you for including The Sea Before Us! What an honor. Personally, I’m hoping for lots of rain this winter so I have plenty of time to READ!! So many good books by so many good authors! I got a sneak peek at The Lost Castle, and it’s excellent!

  6. CANNOT WAIT to read Sarah’s! And of course, Kristy’s, I’m sure will be lovely. Oh, and I’m reading Jaime’s now, too! Happy winter TBR-ing, Courtney!! 🙂
