Top Ten Tuesday used to be hosted over on The Broke and the Bookish but moved over to That Artsy Reader Girl. As described on The Artsy Reader Girl’s blog, “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This description is right up my alley, and I hope you all enjoy this tag as much as I do!
The theme for today’s top 10 is winter TBR. I normally do a monthly one but I’m liking the idea of a seasonal one. Sometimes there’s a book you know you want to get to soon but things come up and you miss it for the month or it’s not the right fit for your mood. I’m really wanting to get more into fantasy so that’s what the majority of this list is going to be.

1) The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White
I got this in a BOTM box and just also received a copy from Owlcrate, so I think it’s the universe’s why of telling me I have to read this
2) Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Between all the hype this book has received and it making the nominee list on Goodreads, it’s definitely time for me to read this. I’ve had it since last month and just haven’t gotten around to it.
3) Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
Another BOTM pick I got last month and haven’t read yet. I’ve never heard of a Rumelstiltskin retelling before so I was intrigued.
I got a special addition of the series for myself for my bday plus I want to reread the series before the prequel comes out.
7) Gideon the Ninth by Tasmyn Muir
I finally ordered a copy of this and should have it in a couple days. I love necromancers and badass female characters so I’m thinking this’ll be right up my ally.
8) A House of Salt and Sorrow by Erin A. Craig
A retelling, curses, death, you have my attention.
9) A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite movies from my childhood so I’m curious how this will compare.
So that’s my TBR for the rest of winter. I know I’ll end up reading some other books as well during January and February but I would really like to try and get to these. I’ve been wanting to read them a while now and since I’m starting to get a bit of an itch for some fantasy and retellings, I think it’s the perfect time for me to dive into these.
What are you guys reading this winter? Have you read these yet or planning on it? Let me know.
