Top Ten Books On My TBR List For Winter

1. Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood - I think I might have died when I got this one in the mail. The gorgeous cover! And it's about witches! It can't go wrong. 

2. Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne - Odd occurrences, red stained hands, mysteries...I'm totally in.  

3. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater - I really want to see what all the fuss is about, because it seems like everyone is raving about this book. Deadly water horses? Beautiful prose? It just sounds amazing. 

4. The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey - Aylee's review convinced me to buy it, and the Printz Honor award on the cover was pretty convincing too, so it's sitting impatiently on my shelf until I get to it.

5. Article 5 by Kristen Simmons - I have very high hopes for this one, so I hope it manages to be unique in a sea of dystopians. 

6. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I have read and reviewed this trilogy already, but with the upcoming movie, I feel like I need a refresher before spring. 

7. Harry Potter series by JK Rowling - Yet another reread I want to do, especially with a series I already adore. Magic, surprises, great world building and fantastic characters...you can't go wrong with a JK Rowling book. 

8. Forgotten by Cat Patrick - I love the sound of the plot, very Memento-like. I can't wait to see what happens.

9. Graceling by Kristin Cashore - I only vaguely remember this book, so I think it's time it got bumped up in my TBR pile (especially since Cashore's newest book will be out in the summer). 

10. Brightest Kind of Darkness by PT Michelle - After reading Melissa's review, this book got pushed up much higher on my TBR list. Any story with a great protagonist automatically gets me interested.



  1. Wow. You have some awesome reads coming :)

  2. Harbinger and Born Wicked are at the top of my list, too! I cannot wait for those to come out! I'm planning a re-read of The Hunger Games series, too. I just love those books :0)

  3. Great list! I really want to read Scorpio Races and Forgotten as well. Hunger Games is amazing btw :)

    Here's my list: http://geobobspinelli.blogspot.com/2011/11/top-ten-tuesday-books-to-read-for.html

    I am new to book blogging and in need of followers!

  4. Ah, Born Wicked! I keep checking the mail, looking for that one, but its STILL hasn't showed up :(

    Anywho, great list, Lea :)

  5. Stop everything and read Graceling NOW!!! I read last January and it is still one of my favorite reads of the year.

  6. I'm re-reading Prisoner of Azkaban right now--it's hard to go wrong with Harry Potter. :)

    Fun list! There are a few on here I've never heard of, and a few more--Graceling, for instance--that I've heard of but never yet managed to read. Must fix that...

  7. I'm really looking forward to Article 5 and Born Wicked! I should work on the Harry Potter series too. I have read up through #5, but want to reread those before I go on.

  8. Really awesome list! I'm a little jealous about Born Wicked and Harbinger. ;P

  9. Great list! It's funny that you mentioned Melissa's review in reference to Brightest Kind of Darkness because it went up higher on my TBR list as well after seeing her review. Ooh, and Graceling! I love that book so much...I think I may just have to reread it (and Fire) too. :)

  10. Oooh, I hope you love The Scorpio Races as much as I did! And I'm so with you about rereading the Hunger Games books before the movie. Definitely necessary. :)

  11. Great list! How could you forget Graceling? One of my all-time faves!
