Top Ten Tuesday | A Cozy & Warm Winter To Be Read List


Hello, there, everyone. Today, one week out from Christmas, here we are with another Top Ten Tuesday post. Our topic today is:

That Artsy Reader Girl | Top Ten Tuesday December 18: Winter [2019] TBR

Top Ten Tuesday December 18

As I say in each of these post topics, seasonal TBR lists are among my most favorite to put together. The issue that plays in is that I rarely, if ever, actually read these books for a seasonal TBR. This in no way means I don’t want to, it’s just that review books that need my attention arrive or some other distraction. This is reason why I rarely want to go back and look at my prior (in this case autumn) TBR!

This list I tried to curate so that it puts together some ARCs I “must read” (but am excited about) and some books form my shelf that I cannot wait to read. By using this “method,” I’m hopeful that I just may be able to read most if not all of these.

Still, as I say, they’re so much fun to make which also means I’m quite fond of this topic. With all that said, let’s take a look at my (perhaps) not-so-actual winter 2019 TBR!

Top Ten Tuesday December 18

1: Snow in Love (Novella Collection) | Currently reading this one, and I’ll make a confession: I skipped the first story because, well, I’m not afraid to admit, I bought this because Kasie West’s name is on the cover. As such, I want to save the best for last. Amazon | Goodreads

2: P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han | Soon as I finished TATBILB and then saw the Netflix adaptation, I really did want to read this sequel. However, now that a Netflix sequel has been announced, the desire to read it has grown tenfold. Amazon | GoodreadsTop Ten Tuesday December 18

3: One Thing I Know (February) by Kara Isaac | Thanks to its author, I received an ARC copy of this upcoming romance, and cannot wait to read it. Kara’s Close to You is an intelligent and charming debut. Amazon | Goodreads

4: Brunch at Bittersweet Café (February) by Carla | Given how well I enjoyed book one in this series, reading this one is a winter must. CANNOT wait to see what’s next for this group of characters. Amazon | Goodreads

5: Just for Clicks (February) by Kara McDowell | This is a random add that I know next to nothing about, but in my searching and Goodreads browsing I came across it. It sounds really cute, and as if it’s a story many in today’s society can relate to. Amazon | Goodreads

6: Within These Lines (March) by Stephanie Morrill | Another book I’m eagerly looking forward to. I like that it’s a YA historical (which I read next to none of) and that it sounds so unique. Amazon | GoodreadsTop Ten Tuesday December 18

7 & 8: Field Notes on Love (March) & The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith | OK, so this is cheating. A bit. It’s true I do plan to pick up (aka preorder) Jennifer’s upcoming novel, and subsequently (hopefully) read it ASAP. But I have to be honest: I’ve already read ‘Geography.’ In fairness to me though when I added the title, I hadn’t yet read it. ‘Field Notes’: Amazon | Goodreads • ‘Geography’: Amazon | Goodreads

9: The Sky Above Us (February) by Sarah Sundin | Knowing how close we are to Sarah’s second novel (in her new series) makes me keenly aware I still must read book one. Perhaps I ought to remedy that first this winter. Amazon | Goodreads

10: Fame, Fate and the First Kiss (February) by Kasie West | Ah, Kasie West. Not only will I preorder this, chances are, I will also actually read this one in the first two months of its arrival. Amazon | Goodreads

  1. I love a good seasonal TBR! It’s fun to plan reads out even if they don’t always go according to plan haha! Snow in Love looks great- I want more seasonal anthologies/ short story collections, and Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe looks cute and fun too. Nice list Rissi!

  2. There are WAY too many books on my general TBR list to name them all, but a few of the highlights are The Cautious Maiden by Dawn Crandall, A Worthy Rebel by Jody Hedlund, Wait for Me by Caroline Leech, The Secrets of Paper and Ink by Lindsay Harrel, and Christmas in Whispering Pines by Scarlett Dunn.

    I’d also like to thank you for sharing your list, and especially for including Stephanie Morrill’s Within These Lines; since reading Jody Hedlund’s Knight series, I’ve become more intrigued by YA historical fiction as well, and to have one centered around the Japanese American Internment event (which I did my honours thesis on) is particularly exciting! I don’t think I’d have heard of it if not for it’s mention here, so thanks!

    1. I am so far behind on being current with Jody Hedlund’s novels, but those I’ve read have been good. I’d also love to read Wait for Me and Lindsay’s novel as well! Both sound really interesting albeit for different reasons (I like the idea that Caroline’s is a YA historical since I never read the genre).

      Fun! Hope you enjoy Stephanie’s. I’m most definitely curious about it. Thanks for stopping by, Kristy, as always.

  3. I didn’t know the sequel had been announced!!! I’m really curious now … because I was absolutely #TeamJohn in PSISLY, but I loved Peter more in the movie than in the first book, so we’ll have to see how it all shakes out. Anyway, thanks for being the bearer of great news :-) I actually have Always and Forever, Lara Jean on my list today.
