Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR

Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week is all about our winter TBR lists. And when you've greatly restricted your use of a TBR list as I have, there's nothing more fun than permission to make one.

Here are the books I'm most looking forward to reading this winter:

1. The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin

2. A Little Life by Hanya Yanigahara

3. Allegedly by Tiffany Jackson

4. The Cooking Gene: A Journey Through African American Culinary History in the Old South by Michael Twitty

5. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

6. Pachinko by Min Jin Lee

7. Longbourn by Jo Baker

8. Binti: Home by Nnedi Okorafor 

9. In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson

10. The Burning Girl by Claire Messud

Some of these are on my 2018 TBR Pile Challenge list which I'll be posting sometime soon, once it's finalized. (Roof Beam Reader is hosting again, so I don't need to do it on my own this year!) I'm hoping to start Sense and Sensibility sometime very soon because I have tickets to see a stage adaptation of it the weekend just before Christmas. My book group at work is reading Allegedly, I think for January. Others are just books I've been wanting to read, some of which just came out recently.

What are your winter reading plans?

I keep thinking of books I want to read in 2018 and it's getting out of control!

Allegedly is on my TBR list, too. I hope you get a chance to read all these!

I read "The Fifth Season" last year and really enjoyed it -- it was a nice blend of science fiction and fantasy. Hoping to finally get around to reading books 2 and 3 this winter! I read "A Little Life" last year too and I'm still not quite sure what I thought about it. Brace yourself for an intense story -- I can say that much about it, at least. I'll look forward to your thoughts!

I loved Sense and Sensibility! Austen is just wonderful. I've got a bunch of the others on my TBR as well...A Little Life is one of those books that I really want to get to but I've heard it's INTENSE and I'm just never quite ready for it
