Top Ten Tuesday: Winter TBR

It’s officially winter! ❄️

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Winter in Wisconsin kinda sucks. I hate the snow. I hate the cold. Don’t ask why I live in the north, I have no answers 😅

But it’s one of my favorite times to read!

I love all the new releases in first part of the year and it’s the perfect cozy way to avoid the bitter cold and snow.

I’ve been in a big fantasy mood so I took that as well as my out of control ARC collection into consideration while making this list.


1. A Universe of Wishes by Dhonielle Clayton

This is a YA fantasy anthology with a focus on diversity. I have a special edition heading my way and I absolutely cannot wait to get it in my hands. I have a love hate relationship with short story collections but I think this one is going to be a hit.

2. The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins

I am so excited for another book from Rachel Hawkins! I read her YA contemporary series and absolutely loved it. This is definitely much different! It’s a thriller twist on Jane Eyre. I have both an audio and e-arc of this so I definitely plan to get to it asap. It’s also a Book of the Month pick for December!

3. The Ruthless Lady’s Guide to Wizardry by C.M. Waggoner

This is a YA historical fantasy that Ace sent me an e-arc of. It’s a sapphic bodyguard romance with assassins and magic. I can’t flipping wait!

4. Into the Heartless Woods by Joanna Ruth Meyer

This is another ARC that I have and one of my most anticipated releases for the first half of the year. It’s a romantic fantasy following a tree siren who fall in love with a boy living on the edge of her forest. It sounds so atmospheric and perfect for winter.

5. Enjoy the View (Moose Springs, Alaska #3) by Sarah Morgenthaler

This is book 3 in this adorable Alaskan rom-com series! I really loved the second book which is a holiday romance and I can’t wait for this third book. This one follows a rugged outdoorsman who falls in love with a hollywood starlet.

6. The Witch’s Heart by Genevieve Gornichec

A fantasy romance between a witch and Loki? Say no more, I’m in. Ace has really been coming through with the e-arcs and I’m so grateful 🙏

7. A Court of Silver Flames (ACOTAR #4) by Sarah J. Maas

I’m apprehensively excited for more in this world. I hate Nesta with a burning passion, but I’m hopefully that SJM can redeem her (maybe).

8. Love at First by Kate Clayborn

I read Kate Clayborn’s previous release Love Lettering last winter and absolutely fell in love with it. So now it’s a tradition. This is another adult romance set in NYC following a man who falls in love with the voice of a woman in his apartment complex. It sounds sweet and wonderful.

9. Deadly Dreams (Fortuna Sworn #3) by K.J. Sutton

I planned to pick this up right away but someone on Instagram reached out and asked if I wanted to buddy read this so I held off for a couple of weeks to read it with them! This is the latest release in the Fortuna Sworn series which is a fantasy romance following Fae and other paranormal beings. Book 2 left off on a hella cliffhanger so I can’t wait to start this!

10. Archangel’s Viper (Guild Hunter #10) by Nalini Singh

I can’t believe I’m almost caught up with this series! This adult fantasy romance series follows Angels and Vampires who keep the world’s population under control. This one follows a side character’s romance that I’ve been anticipating since it was introduced like 4 books ago!


What are you most excited to read this winter?

    • I know a LOT of people really don’t like the series. It’s extremely over the top and cheesy and the author tends to throw in way too much. I liked book 2 but I recently watched an hour long live show where 4 reviewers just trashed it 😅 So I’d definitely borrow the books if possible – just in case!

      • That’s helpful to know! I got the first book through NetGalley and knew it wasn’t for me, so I just sent a note to the publisher rather than give it a really bad review :/ but if I do decide to read them again, I’ll take your advice and borrow instead of buy!
