Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR List


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

These Broken Stars (Starbound, #1)

1. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
I just KNOW I'm getting this one for Christmas. And EEP I can't wait!! I'm ridiculously excited for this and I will drop everythig as soon as I get my hands on this pretty.

Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2)

2. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
Okay, so I'm not sure I'm getting this one for Christmas, but it is very likely. FINALLY I'll be able to read this and lust after Cress with you guys!


3. Elusion by Claudia Gabel & Cheryl Klam

I have an ARC of this pretty so I'll be reading this one soon! Just look at that incredibly shiny cover <3 Yup, I'll get to this one soon!

After the End (After the End, #1)

4. After The End by Amy Plum

Eep! More ARCey goodness. While Plum's Revenants series may not have been the best when it comes to quality, it was SO MUCH FUN and the ultimate guilty pleasure read for me. So yeah, pretty darn excited!

Maybe One Day

5. Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor

This seems like a really sad book that will leave many people sobbing. So yeah, I'll be reading it soon. As in, very soon.

All That Glows

6. All That Glows by Ryan Graudin

This sounds soooo good! Fae, princes, mystery... Oh yeah baby. My only complaint is that the main character is named Emrys. I can't read that name without thinking of Merlin (the TV series), which gets me really nostalgic because I faithfully watched every episode with my parents and I was so sad when it was over. *sigh* Good times. 

Prisoner of Night and Fog (Prisoner of Night and Fog, #1)

7. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman

I'll just leave you the synopsis:
"In 1930s Munich, danger lurks behind dark corners, and secrets are buried deep within the city. But Gretchen Müller, who grew up in the National Socialist Party under the wing of her "uncle" Dolf, has been shielded from that side of society ever since her father traded his life for Dolf's, and Gretchen is his favorite, his pet.

Uncle Dolf is none other than Adolf Hitler.

And Gretchen follows his every command.

Until she meets a fearless and handsome young Jewish reporter named Daniel Cohen. Gretchen should despise Daniel, yet she can't stop herself from listening to his story: that her father, the adored Nazi martyr, was actually murdered by an unknown comrade. She also can't help the fierce attraction brewing between them, despite everything she's been taught to believe about Jews.

As Gretchen investigates the very people she's always considered friends, she must decide where her loyalties lie. Will she choose the safety of her former life as a Nazi darling, or will she dare to dig up the truth—even if it could get her and Daniel killed?"
 I went WHAAAAAAAT? So yeah.

Don't Call Me Baby

8. Don't Call Me Baby by Gwendolyn Heasley

A book about blogging. BLOGGING. Oh yes, this will be right up my alley.

The Iron Traitor (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #2)

9. The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa

I still haven't read my e-ARC of this one. Shame on me. Apparently this has a really emotionally crippling cliffhanger ending, and oh, I'm sure Kagawa will punch me in the feels several times. I MUST GET TO THIS SOON. 


10. Speechless by Hannah Harrington

So I saw this on Edelweiss and requested it without realizing that this book had actually come out in 2012. Oops. And then - even stranger - I was approved to read it O.o But my galley will expire soon-ish, so I have to get to this pretty soon. Apparently it's amazing, and certain people won't shut up about this Sam, haha. I guess I'm in for a treat?

Honorable Mentions (AKA Books That Would Have Totally Been On This List Had I Not Read Them Already And No, This Title Is Not Too Long At All)

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Into The Still Blue by Veronica Rossi
Uninvited by Sophie Jordan
Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas
Panic by Lauren Oliver
