The 10 Books I Hope to Read this Winter Season


Here we are again. Another new season is upon us and with it comes the chance to share my winter 2020 reading wish list aka a winter 2020 (- 2021) TBR!

LIST | 20 Books that Look (and ARE!) All Kinds of Happy From my Shelf

Like anytime, I rarely if ever follow my seasonal TBRs, but also like every other one I create, I love the chance to talk about seasonal reading because these publications are just so much fun to put together. Like usual, I’m going to put together mostly titles that are already on my bookshelf because I’m trying to be better about reading what I own over reading only new releases. Also, I feel it important to note that, unlike my summer transition into fall TBR-ing, I did not go back to review my fall TBR progress. I already know I FAILED, and who needs the reminder!!??

Let’s take a look.

Winter 2020 Reading Wish List

1: The Code for Love and Heartbreak, Jillian Cantor

Adding this one because it’s a contemporary YA re-telling of Jane Austen’s Emma, and I am HERE FOR THIS! Goodreads

2: The Dress Shop on King Street, Ashley Clark

Like I say (all. the. time.), I am not a fan of historical fiction in a general sense, but now and again one comes along that intrigues! This is one. Plus, I’m curious about a new-to-me author. Goodreads

3: Jo & Laurie, Melissa de la Cruz and Margaret Stohl

I know… I’ve had this one on my seasonal TBRs for, what, the last two seasons? I don’t know. Either way, it’s one I still want to read, and hey, maybe it’ll work out and this is actually the better season to enjoy this one! Goodreads

4: The Cul-de-Sac War, Meslissa Fergunson

This book has had LOTS of praise, but before that, I *knew* I’d want to read it. Melissa’s books SOUND soo good, I just have to read them. Goodreads

5: Jane in Love, Rachel Givney

This one sounds fun, and as it’s a newer book on my shelf, I figured I may as well include this one! Goodreads

6: To Love a Prince, Rachel Hauck

Who doesn’t love a good royal romance? Goodreads winter tbr 2020

7: Well Met, Jen DeLuca

This has been an intending-to-read title on my shelf for way too long. I feel as though it looks like a solid, entertaining read, plus thinking ahead, I’ll need some rom-coms for January/February 2021 content. Goodreads

8: The Vanishing Stair, Maureen Johnson

Pretty sure I have this one on my autumn TBR, but as I said, I’m too “scared” to go back and look, so I’ll just assume instead. Anyway, a fun little mystery seems a good add-on, right? Goodreads

9: New Year’s Kiss, Lee Matthews

This one just looks and sounds DARLING, and ideally I’d love to read it starting off the 2021 year. Goodreads

10: Recommended for You, Sarah Silverman

This one just sounds super fun, and I’m here for a fun YA novel, hopefully in the same line as the fun The Upside of Falling. Goodreads

BONUS! Back to You, Jess Mastorakos

Like I said, I wanted some light-hearted romances on this list for early 2021 content. Let’s see if this will actually help in my content planning, plus I’m a softie for military romance. Goodreads

BONUS! Christmas in Three Quarter Time, Rachel McMillan

I’m pretty strict about NO Christmas reading post-Christmas, but I will usually read one or so in January and be chill about it. So… maybe I’ll get this one read? Goodreads

  1. I’m waiting for The Dress Shop on King Street to show up in my mailbox. I read for review, so I read a lot of new releases. Unlike you , my favorite genre is historical, so I will be reading this list for January and February:
    Tidewater Bride by Laura Frantz
    Dreams os Savannah by Roseanna White
    A Cowboy for Keeps by Jody Hedlund
    A Dance in Donegal by Jennifer Deible
    When Twilight Breaks by Sarah Sundin
    The Lady in Residential by Allison Pittman
    Shadows of the White City by Jocelyn Green
    And my second favorite, Suspense:
    Lethal Intent by Cara Putman
    Obsession by Patricia Bradley
    Network of Deceit by Tom Threadgill
    All will be well when they arrive!

  2. I tried to pick some books that are on my Kindle, to remind me that they exist! To Love a Prince is one I want to read at some point! I really love that cover.
