Today’s Topic: Winter 2018 TBR
Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl
My winter TBR list consists of books which I really want to read, but which I haven’t gotten around to yet. With the holidays upon us, I don’t have as much time to whittle away at those lonely titles that are waiting to be read. But, I am resolved to make the effort.
Here are a few that I’ve decided to make top priority.
The Matrimonial Advertisement -I recently read a little holiday novella by Mimi Matthews, my first by this author. I loved it so much I decided to read this full length novel which comes highly recommended by people I trust.
Becoming Mrs. Lewis – This sounds like a fascinating story of the wife of C.S. Lewis. I always love reading about real people, particularly those who provide the emotional support to famous figures.
The Liberty Bride – I’ve always loved Tyndall’s pirate stories. They are so well written. I’m also intrigued by the setting during the War of 1812. It’s not one of the more popular settings in war-based stories.
The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond – I was stunned speechless by Jaime Jo Wrights’ debut novel earlier this year. I’m looking forward to reading her sophomore effort and hope that it is every bit as atmospherically gothic, and spine tingling creepy as the first.
Together Forever – I’m a bit behind on this series as the third book has now released. Jody Hedlund has a way of bringing history to life. I love that this series focuses on a lesser known event of history and features the lives of the poor and working class such as those involved with the Orphan Trains.
The Summer Before the War – This poor book has been sitting unread for much too long. I’ve tried starting it several times but then get interested in something else. But I really want to read it. It sounds so charmingly English. Besides, I could use a little summer in the middle of winter.
A Daring Venture – Elizabeth Camden is one of my favorite historical fiction authors. I’m dying to read her newest release, especially since it is a sequel to one I read and loved earlier this year.I really appreciate that she writes the most complex female heroines with intriguing occupations.
An Act of Villiany – This is the latest in a delightful series about a British socialite who plays amateur detective with her insouciant husband. I enjoy the mysteries quite a bit, but I enjoy even more the mysteries of Amory’s marriage to Milo.
Fawkes – I’ve read so many great review of this novel that have me intrigued. The story idea is rather creative, mixing history with fantasy.
The Cafe by the Sea -I have heard so many good things about author Jenny Colgan and her stories sound like everything I love to read. This is the only one of her books I own so far and I’m looking forward to discovering what the fuss is all about. And how can I resist a story billed as “modern twist to the classic Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” story?
What books on your TBR list are you prioritizing this winter? Have you read any of the ones I’ve listed?
