Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is about our winter reading plans.
Last week, my TTT was all about the ARCs I have coming up at the start of the new year. This week, I’m focusing on other books I’m looking forward to reading — some upcoming new releases, some books I’ve bought recently, and one that I’ve had for way too long and really need to get to.
The first four on my list are all new volumes in ongoing series, and just thinking about them makes me happy.
1) Come Tumbling Down (Wayward Children, #5) by Seanan McGuire: This book comes out in early January, and I can’t wait! I love this series so much, and I’m especially excited for this one because it picks up where one of my favorites (Down Among the Sticks and Bones) left off.
2) No Fixed Line (Kate Shugak, #22) by Dana Stabenow: I love this series, the Alaska setting, and Kate herself, who is just an awesome lead character. I’ve been itching for more Kate — so excited for this upcoming January release!
3) Imaginary Numbers (InCryptid, #9) by Seanan McGuire: Yup, even more Seanan McGuire! And yes, I do love everything she writes. The InCryptid series is really fun, and I’m super excited for this book, especially since I won a copy in a Goodreads giveaway. (Thanks, Goodreads!)
4) Smoke Bitten (Mercy Thompson, #12) by Patricia Briggs: Mercy is one of my favorite lead characters, and I can’t wait to see what’s next for her and her pack.
Other (non-series) books I’m looking forward to reading:
5) Well Met by Jen DeLuca: I’ve been on a roll with cute romances lately, and this story, set at a RenFaire, sounds adorable.
6) Alice by Christina Henry: I’m officially in love with Christina Henry’s writing, so it’s time to go back and read the books I’ve missed.
7) The Beekeeper of Aleppo by Christy Lefteri: This is my book club’s pick for January, and I’m really determined to make more of an effort to keep up with our monthly reads this year.
8) Upright Women Wanted by Sarah Gailey: From the Goodreads blurb: “The future American Southwest is full of bandits, fascists, and queer librarian spies on horseback trying to do the right thing.” Um, yes please! I love Sarah Gailey’s writing, and this sounds pretty amazing.
9) Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir: I finally picked up a copy, so this is high on my priority list! Maybe even this week…
10) Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik: I bought this when it came out in 2018 — it’s about time that I finally read it!

I loved Alice! It’s very dark, but hard to put down. And Come Tumbling Down is high on my list for January as well😁
I’m excited to read Alice! When I first saw the book a couple of years ago, I assumed it was a standard Alice in Wonderland retelling, but now that I finally have a copy and read the synopsis, it sounds much more my speed.
Yay, I hope you enjoy Spinning Silver! 😀 I really want to read Upright Women Wanted, Well Met and Gideon the Ninth, and it’s about time I made a start on the Mercy Thompson series. Happy reading!
Mercy is so wonderful! I think you’ll love it if you give it a try!
Wonderful list. Not familiar with them. Enjoy over the winter. https://pmprescott.blogspot.com/2019/12/ttt-winter-tbr-list.html
Thank you! Enjoy your winter reading!
Now that you mention it, I’m hoping to read Spinning Silver this winter as well!
Maybe we’ll both finally get to it!
I can’t wait for come tumbling down!
I hope you will love all of them!
Thanks so much! Come Tumbling Down is definitely my most anticipated!
Erm… Upright Women Wanted sounds amazing! Definitely sticking that on my TBR! Happy reading!
My Winter TBR.
Thanks! Enjoy your winter reading too!
I got to catch up on the Wayward Children series. Also need to read Spinning Silver finally. Hope you enjoy these!
Thanks so much! Enjoy your winter reading too!
It’s rare I’ve only heard of one book in someone’s list….Well Met is all I’ve encountered! Fascinating.
I guess it just goes to show that no matter how many books we read, there are always more to discover! 🙂
‘Spinning Silver’ fits the season very well! I wasn’t a huge fan of it, but it’s an excellent pic for Winter!
I really liked her previous book, Uprooted, so I have high hopes for this one!
Hi Lisa! You are all set for at least the first week of January – at your reading speed!
Ha ha, I appreciate the positivity!
I definitely want to read Well Met sometime soon!
I’m hoping to start it before the end of 2019!
