Top Ten Books on Our Winter TBR List

Lindsay's Selections:
So. I gave a rather extensive list last week on books I'm excited about in 2014. A few of those would definitely overlap with this week's list (particularly Ignite Me, Into the Still Blue and Cress) so I'll just link to it here, and you can check out the other ones released this Winter. With that being said, I'll be listing all new books for today's Top Ten. 

1. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner. Released today. And I'll be reading it TODAY. I've heard nothing but good, wonderful, amazing things about this book. Also the #thesebrokenfeels is happening. I'm a little worried. But in a ridiculously excited way.

Pretty pretty pretty dress. I love.
 2. Timebound by Rysa Walker. I'm actually currently reading this one and loving it so far. It's all wibbly wobbly timey wimey. Which makes my Whovian heart so very happy.
Plus it gives me an excuse to use this gif of David Tennant talking about how time is a
"big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey....stuff."

3. Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano. I've been meaning to read this one for a while now. I've heard the beginning is a little slow, but the ending is amazing. Can't wait to find out for myself.

4. Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi. Even though this is a novella, it's totally still making the list. I can't wait to read some from Adam's POV (even though I heart Warner). I also plan on rereading the first two books and other novella before reading this one. I love love LOVE this series.

5. Legend / Prodigy / Champion by Marie Lu. I already have Legend all set to go on my Kindle (thanks to a kindle daily deal a couple of weeks ago), and I know once I start the series, I won't be able to stop.

Sarah's Selections: I have too many books to count on my TBR list. Here are my top five!

1. The Dream Thieves (The Raven Boys #2) by Maggie Stiefvater. I'm actually in the process of reading this one. I love Maggie Stiefvater. She never ever disappoints me when I need something great to read.

2. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund. Anything that was inspired by Jane Austen's Persuasion sounds good to me! Persuasion is my favorite JA novel. Also, this is also one that Lindsay recommended to me and she hasn't steered me wrong yet.

3. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I've had this one downloaded to my Nook for a few months now. I'm determined to get to it before the end of the year! 

4. The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta. I've already declared my love for Melina Marchetta. She gave me Jellicoe Road and Finnikin of the Rock, not to mention I've read every other book she's written. I must read this one too, obviously!

5. Rags & Bones: New Twists on Timeless Tales by Multiple Authors (Neil Gaiman, Melissa Marr, and Holly Black ... Just to name a few). I always enjoy these kinds of reads. Multiple authors in one book always makes me excited to keep turning the page. AND Neil Gaiman put a new spin on the tale of Sleeping Beauty for this book. Know that was enough for me to add it to my list. 


  1. Fracture Me made my list too. I feel like it's going to make the wait for Ignite me a little bit better. OH, you have to read Shadow and Bone asap. There was a lot of hype around it and I put it off, big mistake. It's so super awesome and I don't even like fantasy.
