8 Books on My Winter TBR

by - 10:53 AM

Hello my name is Ellie and I have a confession: I'm reeeeally bad with set TBRs. I'm such a mood reader (anyone relate?), I can hardly predict what I'll want to read week to week, let alone for an entire season. BUT! I do sometimes prioritize certain books. Like these. Which I WILL read before my birthday in March and NONE OF YOU WILL STOP ME.

Top Ten (or eight, if you're me) Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and recently moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. It's a weekly bookish listy linkup that I always mean to participate in and rarely do, except, I suppose, for today.

West by Edith Pattou - *slides into the East fandom just as the decade-long wait for the sequel is finally ending* sup.

Exiles and Bitter Winter by Jaye L. Knight - These are the next couple books in Knight's Ilyon Chronicles, a Christian fantasy series I really like. (Despite being an agnostic. A dichotomy you can read more about here and here.)

City of Betrayal by Claudie Arseneault - This is kind of a cheat because I already started this . . . way back in June. This is the book I have on my phone for when I'm stuck somewhere, like in a long line at the store, and I don't have a physical book on hand to pass the time. As such, my progress has been verrrrrry slow. But I will finish it before March, okay? There's no way I'm letting this take me as long as Les Miserables.

Vengeance by Gail Z. Martin - The Darkhurst novels are basically like the TV show Supernatural if it took place in a fantasy world. What's not to love? 

This Way to the Sugar by Hieu Minh Nguyen - I've been on a poetry kick lately, and the few of Nguyen's poems I've previewed look incredible. I love his style, and I can totally relate to the primary theme of growing up queer in the Midwest.

The Crown Ain't Worth Much by Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib - One of my closest friends, who has excellent taste in poetry, recommended this volume to me. I finally caved and bought it earlier today. I'll hopefully be able to read it over break!

Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard - It doesn't matter if I am the only living person in the blogosphere who likes the Witchland books. I will read Bloodwitch the moment it comes out and I will shout about it for the next six months and you will all have to listen to me do it. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Let's chat! What books are you planning to read soon? Do you like poetry? What's a series you need to catch up on? Comment below, and have a fabulous day. <3

  1. The Darkhurst books sound great and just the type of books I'd be into!

    1. They are! I'm pretty surprised they're not more popular, actually.

  2. I'm bad with TBRs too because I never stick to them. Sometimes I'm a mood reader and sometimes my holds come in at the library and I'm like I NEED TO READ THIS ASAP.

    Great list!

    1. Haha, same! Having a time limit imposed by a library is one of the few things that can actually get me to read specific books in a timely manner.

  3. these look awesome! the exiles and bitter winter ones look really interesting... and i love the cover of the crown that ain't worth much!!
