Top Ten Books On My TBR List For Winter

Posted November 29, 2011 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 26 Comments


Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares, by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
I love Christmas and NYC, so this is definitely a must-read for the holidays!

The Twelve Days of Christmas, by Trisha Ashley
This is a cute-sounding Christmas romance that takes place in a remote town on the Lancashire moors in England. The heroine does not like Christmas much, and jumps on house sitting to get away. While she’s there, the town gets snowed in and she meets a guy (obviously!). I bet love is involved. I love Christmas books!

Fairytale of New York, by Miranda Dickinson
This is part of my fall/winter reading challenge with the Goodreads college students group. The cover is snowy and cute, and I can only assume the story will be the same! And I seriously love NYC (had I mentioned that before?) :P

Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances, by John Green, Maureen Johnson, & Lauren Myracle
Do I need to explain this? Three stories written by three great YA authors? I’m so there. I tried to read this last Christmas, and got really busy… and then Christmas was over, and I refuse to read Christmas books after December 25th.

The Snow Bride, by Debbie Macomber
During the holidays, I need some corny in my life (name the movie that inspired this quote!), and Debbie Macomber always delivers some of that. :) This one sounds pretty good, though! Internet dating… an Alaskan Christmas to go randomly marry him… BUT on the flight over, she meets another guy who does not approve of her insane idea to marry this guy. So… he changes her plans for her and takes her to his own cabin. And again, a blizzard happens. And again, love probably does too. Haha. What is it with blizzards and love stories? Maybe I need to find some hunky man in a Colorado ski lodge and pray for a lot of snow.

The Unlikely Romance of Kate Bjorkman, by Louise Plummer
A reader from another blog I write for, The Broke and the Bookish, recommended this book to me. I read the description on the back cover, and ordered it. It sounds funny, cute, and like a great pick-me-up for a cold, wintry day!

Crossed (Matched #2), by Ally Condie
I’ve asked for this for Christmas, and it has been so hard waiting so long to find out what happens next (after Matched).

Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen
This is also part of my Goodreads winter challenge, and I am completely determined. I love P&P fan fiction, but have not read P&P! I know I will appreciate all of it more once I read this. Plus, I have the sexy Barnes and Noble leather bound classic. It’s so pretty!

Pure, by Julianna Baggott
I got an ARC for this from netgalley, and am pretty excited about it. It’s a dystopia that sounds pretty good! Look out for my review here sometime in January!

Cinder, by Marissa Meyer
I also got this from netgalley. A cyborg Cinderella? It’s a brave storyline, and I’m hoping I’ll enjoy it! It comes out on January 3rd, so my review will be posted here around that time.

And of course… Pandemonium, by Lauren Oliver and Fever, by Lauren DeStefano. SO excited for both of those!

So, what are you must-reads for the winter season? I’m always on the lookout for cozy reads. This is seriously the best time of year to always be found with your nose in a book. :)

  1. I just finished Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares, and it was adorable!

    Tanya, I’m a big theme reader. Haha. It makes books seem more real to me that way!

  2. I’m really looking forward to reading Catching Jordan – that’s a big one on my list. I am so anxious to see what you think about Crossed. So many loose ends to tie up in the third book. AHHH!

  3. If you haven’t yet read Pride & Prejudice, you are in for a treat. Jane Austen was such a wonderful writer. Good luck with your reading list. Hopefully we can both finish!

  4. AAH! How have you not read P&P yet?? And why did I not know this? Seriously, you are going to LOVE it! It’s a perfect wintry/Christmas-y read, I always reread it around December/January :)
    You have some really cute sounding books on your list! Will have to check them out :)

  5. Alexa – I’m still working my way through it! The language takes a bit of getting used to, since I’ve been reading so much YA lately! It’s great so far!

    Magan – I have not heard of Crossing Jordan. I need to look that one up. I’m pretty excited for Crossed!

    Karis – SO glad to know you loved both books. Makes me more excited to read them!

  7. LBC

    I just picked up a copy of Crossed and I’m excited to read it although I don’t remember Matched all that well. I guess I’ll have to look back at my review and hope I said enough to jog my memory.

  8. Chey, Dash and Lily was my first Levithan/Cohn book, and I need to read more! Nick and Norah is next! And thanks for loving my blog!

    LBC, I don’t remember Matched much either. Luckily we both reviewed it!

    Eli, I hear Pandemonium has an ever worse cliffhanger than Delirium! I’m excited, but scared. I could hardly handle Delirium’s ending!

    Jess, I’ll be looking for your Pure and Cinder reviews! I love ARCs!

  9. Thank you for visiting my site (again)!
    LET It Snow! I need to read that, it’s been on my TBR for years. I’m looking forward to see what people think of Cinder as well.
    oh and,Is the movie The Holiday?

  10. Jana, you are like my idol. Or soulmate. The Unlikely Romance was ONE of my favorite books when I was younger and I lent it to someone and never got it back. It’s on my list of books to buy. I hope you love it. I remember love love loving it! – Estelle
