Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Let’s be real for a minute: winter is not my favorite time of the year. In fact, I’m one of those people who wish they could just hole up inside of the house for the duration of winter. Or go somewhere sunnier. Anything to escape winter, which has everything I strongly dislike: freezing temperatures that leave me in a perpetual state of chill and feeling like I’ll never ever feel warm again (#dramaqueen), having to get up even earlier to scrape the ice of my car (ugh), too many layers of clothes that I have never been able to combine in a flattering way (need fashion advice on winter survival, stat), having to face my fears of driving in the snow (nightmare), constantly chapped lips and dry hands and endlessly dark days with no sunshine to boost my morale…
Nope, I’m not a fan of winter. Thankfully, there is one bright side to winter and that is the joy of being able to curl up on the sofa, snuggled under a nice warm blanket, cup of hot cocoa nearby and a great book in your hands. Plus, some of my most anticipated books ever are being released this winter, so in a way, I’m also weirdly looking forward to it…
Without further ado, I present to you the books that I’m hoping to be the beautiful highlights of the next few wintery months…
— NEW Winter releases —
Umm, I still can’t believe my FAVORITE CHARACTER EVER got his own series and I’ll be able to read the first book this winter #blessed
It’s been too long since The Cruel Prince and I need more Jude and Cardan in my life okay, I just need more of them now.
Oh boy, am I looking forward to the third book in the Guild Codex series because I can’t wait to be reunited with Tori and her three mages. And I’m totally hoping for another character’s return as well…
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne is without a doubt my favorite romance novel to date. I’ve read it multiple times already so I have high hopes and expectations for Sally’s next novel!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of my earliest obsessions. I’m so looking forward to dive back into the world of vampires and slayers and Kiersten White’s take on it.
Alice Oseman has many books still on my TBR, but I’ve been craving some adorable fluff lately and this webcomic-gone-to-print has been hailed as super adorable and cute and I need it soon. Just looking at that cover gives me hearteyes.
— From the backlist —
Two of my favorite authors wrote a book together and I haven’t read it yet? MUST. FIX. THIS. SOON.
How long have I been saying I need to read this book? This winter is the time, though.
Seriously, I’m angry at myself for keeping this book on my bookshelf without reading it for FOREVER. I know I’ll love it, I just need to START.
Somehow, this feels like a fall read (just look at that cover), but since I failed at reading it this fall I’m saving it for winter instead.
