Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my Winter TBR



Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the gals at The Broke and the Bookish. For this week’s list: Books On My Winter TBR, although technically we don’t have winter where I come from. 🙂


TTT Winter TBR

#10    Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor – I have yet to read this highly recommended book and I can’t wait to catch up on this series.

#9       Foreplay by Sophie Jordan – I haven’t had the opportunity to read any of Sophie Jordan’s work yet and this compelling story has me in its grip. 

#8       The Shadow Throne by Jennifer Nielsen – I can’t wait to see what Jennifer Neilsen has in store for her readers as she concludes her trilogy with the release of this book. 

#7       Feel the Heat by Kate Meader – I just finished All Fired Up and enjoyed it so much that all I can say about Kate Meader’s books is: More. I Want More.

#6       Satisfaction by Sarah Mayberry – I’ve loved all the books that Sarah Mayberry has written and I can’t wait for her next book to come out in early January

#5       Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge – The release date for this book never seems to come any closer. I’m excited to try out Rosamund Hodge’s writing. I hope she delivers because she has an already compelling storyline. 

#4       It Felt Like A Kiss by Sarra Manning – I haven’t read any of her  books yet but her name has been associated with a lot of starred reviews. When I read the book blurb for this one, I told myself I have got to read this one. 

#3       Crash Into You by Katie McGarry – I know. I’m already at the back of the pack. I want a hard copy of this book and it’s still not available in our local bookstores. So I’m (im)patiently waiting.

#2       The Chocolate Temptation by Laura Florand – I’ve fangirl-ed a lot about how I love Laura Florand’s book. I can’t wait for her next book for release.

#1        The Countess Conspiracy by Courtney Milan – December 17, why are you so far away? Courtney Milan writes one of the best historical romance stories there ever will be. Her latest series, The Brothers Sinister, is breathtaking. 


I have one honorable mention here: Sarah MacLean‘s No Good Duke Goes Unpunished. I’m also (im)patiently waiting for my copy to arrive via Bookdepository. I have to read this before the year ends. I just have to..

There you go. What about you, guys? What are your picks for the weeks?

Super Six Sunday: Books that are on my TBR list for more than 6 months



Super Six Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by the gals at Bewitched Bookworms. This week’s theme: Books that have spend more than six months in my to-be-read (TBR) pile and which I haven’t gotten around to reading yet.



The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom

I’m a fan of Mitch Albom. Although I know I’ll definitely get tears in my eyes before I finish his books, I still read them because I know I’ll get something from the experience. Every. Single. Time.



Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

I’ve read a lot of positive reviews for this book and although it’s not usually my cup of tea genre-wise I added it to my TBR and I’m looking forward to finding out how this book will make me feel.



Immortal City by Scott Speer

I was going to read this at the same time as my friend but for some reason (aka, I got distracted by other books), my friend ended up finishing it while I did not even get past the first chapter. But I’m still keeping it in my TBR pile and hoping I get around to reading it soon.



Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

I love Rainbow Rowell. I’ve read and will adore to the end of my days her two other books, Eleanor and Park and Fangirl. But for some reason, I haven’t read Attachments yet. I don’t know if it’s nerves on my part because it may not be as wonderful as her other two books but it’s Rainbow Rowell, so I’ll trust in her name and in her work and still give this one a try. Soon.

Daughter of Smoke & Bone and Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor

This series has garnered quite a following and I’m really looking forward to getting started with the Laini Taylor experience. I’ll probably start this series once the third book comes out.

Archangel’s Kiss and Archangel’s Consort by Nalini Singh

Okay, I can’t believe I haven’t read these two yet when I’ve read Books 1, 4, and 5 and Book 6 just came out. The reason for this might be because I’m initially not used to having the same characters as leads in three consecutive books. I’m OC like that but I can manage it now with all the other books I’ve read that continues the series with the same hero and heroine. So, I’m definitely going to be reading these two soon, probably before the year ends.


There you go. Those are my Super Six this Sunday. What about you, guys? What have you got in your TBR pile for more than half a year now? 🙂
