I am back with the Top Ten Tuesday posts (see a full list). I took a big break from them, because I got stumped by this one prompt and couldn’t make it past it. I always said, I’ll do it next week and it never happened, but look at me now. This week is all about the books on our Winter To Read List.
For most of us, this is the point in the season in which we look at all our books and panic. We wonder how we could have strayed so far, left so many books unread. While I have finished my Goodreads goal of 200 books, I have those same feelings. I wonder how I could have read so few backlist titles. Or how I still have the same few books on my list.
But now here is my list of totally do-able books I can finish to round up the year.
- Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire. I got this out like twice this year and just never managed to actually put my nose to the book.
- Geekerella by Ashley Poston. This was recommended to me after I read Heart of Iron and adored it. I’m listening to it on audiobook, the question is if I can finish it by the end of the year.
- The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin. This has been recommended to be about a million times this year. I get it people, I’m going to read it!
- Book of Bera by Suzie Wilde. I have heard pretty mixed things about this one, so I’m not looking forward to it. Then again, I have a Netgalley ratio to uphold.
- The Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan. The title alone drew me in and Orbit was kind enough to send it to me.
- Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde. This cover is pie.
- Onyx and Ivory by Mindee Arnett. I have this ARC and have already traded it, so I need to read this like NOW.
- Inkmistress by Audrey Coulthurst. I am sending this ARC to a friend in February, and need to finish it before that, and also not drown under all these books.
- The Rule of Luck by Catherine Cerveny.
- The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman.
And that’s about it. That’s enough books right? I feel like naming ten books to read before the end of the year is borderline cruel at this point right??
What do you have to read before the end of the year?
