Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is about reading plans for this winter. What’s on my TBR list? Um, about 2,000 books? But thinking in more practical terms, here’s what I’m planning (hoping) to read during the next few months.
First up, I’m trying to be diligent about (a) only requesting books from NetGalley that I really, really want to read; and (b) actually reading them on or around publication dates. This part of my list is dedicated to NetGalley ARCs with publication dates between December 2017 and March 2018:
1) The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden (12/5/2017): The sequel to The Bear and the Nightingale!
2) The Treacherous Curse by Deanna Raybourn (1/16/2018): Book three in the delightful Veronica Speedwell series.
3) As Bright as Heaven by Susan Meissner (2/6/2018): Historical fiction set in Philadelphia during the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918, from the author of A Fall of Marigolds.
4) The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah (2/6/2018): Because I’m a sucker for anything set in Alaska!
5) Rosie Colored Glasses by Brianna Wolfson (2/20/2018): Contemporary fiction about a mother and daughter — looks like fun.
6) The Family Next Door by Sally Hepworth (3/13/2018): I’ve loved both books I’ve read by this author so far… despite the never-ending tears.
7) The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian (3/13/2018): Need I explain? Such an amazing author — I’ll read whatever he writes.
Besides the ARCs, I’m really looking forward to reading these next three, which I either own or have on order:
8) Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich: Can’t wait to see her spin on the dystopian genre.
9) The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert: This YA book seems to be getting a lot of buzz.
10) George and Lizzie by Nancy Pearl: Sounds great!
