Top Ten Books for Winter

Top Ten is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Most of these books have already been released and I own them, and they sit on my desk giving me the stink eye for buying them and not having the time to actually read them (turns out in college the only way you will ever get to read a fun book is if you're up until 3 am), so this winter I plan to read 8 to ten books. Even if I never leave my apartment, I will finish them. I have much anticipation for some of these books. And other books here are ones that will be released in January and cannot come out fast enough.

1. The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark: I have an ARC copy of this book and need to have it read, so it's not for fun, but for review.

2. The Morganville Vampires vol. 3 & 4 by Rachel Caine: I miss Claire and Shane and Eve and Michael and the rest of Morganville.

3. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa: I hear such great things about this series that I just want to start it already so if I like it I can ring in the New Year with a set of books to read.

4. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer: I started this book back in September and then school got in the way, so I hope to finish this and go after the second book. From what I read, I already like it.

5. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare: Well, what do you expect? All the cool kids were reading it, and I just wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

6. A Million Suns by Beth Revis: The first book in the series was one of the best DA books that I read and I cannot wait to get my hands on this book.

7. Truth by Julia Karr: Another awesome DA book I read this year, and cannot wait for the sequel.

8. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver: I will go after this woman if things do not turn out the way they should for the main character, because I am afraid that she will do something that will make me hate the series, like other authors have done. And for those that read the first book know what I'm talking about.

9. A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies: Well I've heard such good things about this book I figure, why not?

10. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin: I must say, watching the TV show has peeked my interest in the show and the world that Martin has created.

Be prepared once you begin Clare's series you will be hooked and have to read them all. Enjoy all your winter reads.

Great list! I can't believe you were able to put Nightshade down! You are disciplined! Check out my review (HERE) if you want to see what happened to my house when I read it! Happy reading!

I sort of expected to enjoy Nightshade, but I ended up hating it with more power than I thought I had. Can't win 'em all, I guess.

I want to pick up Game of Thrones, but I know it's a big, long series, and I just don't have that kind of time right now. Maybe in the future, though...

You haven't read the Iron Fey series yet? You really need to do so soon! It is excellent.
