Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & the Bookish. It’s awesome. Every Tuesday, the lovely ladies over there give us book bloggers wonderful and fun topics to create our lists! Check out what others have posted by going over there! http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com
WOW- What a day! Both kids are home because of the snow in NJ_ can you believe we are using a snow day already??
Aside from the fact that I was already up (my son too) by the time they actually called and cancelled, it’s been a pretty cool morning. I sat in my reading chair with a cozy blanket as the snow began falling before 7 am, and read for two hours. I started The Bone Season yesterday and cannot wait to finish!
I have been very slow to post/review lately, but I have been lucky enough to be reading lots! Here is a list of what I hope to read over the winter. I don’t know about you, but I tend to choose a little deeper reading in the winter months, mixed in with some fun stuff for a change of pace. I am still planning to join up with The Classics Club…yeah yeah I know I keep saying it, but I really am! So here are some lighter things (and 1-2 not so light) to pull me through the dreary months ahead.
1. The Lives of Tao by Wesley Chu
I heard this was a good book, and now has a sequel, so it’s on the list.
2. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
This has been on my TBR for a while now, and I found that I read a good amount of the books I listed for my Fall TBR post, so maybe I will finally get to it!
3. After Her by Joyce Maynard
4. Sycamore Row by John Grisham
I have been waiting for this through my library for almost a month.
5. The Dark Witch by Nora Roberts
a little lighter for the in betweens
6. What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarity
I am loving this author. Her book The Husband’s Secret was great and I have heard this is just as good!
7. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simison
I have seen some great review- looks like a fun book- maybe after skiing?
8-14. Harry Potter Reread!!
I am inspired by Leah at Books Speak Volumes– she had such a great time doing her reread, and I want to do another also!
I usually find lots of time to read in the winter, and eat, now that I think about it.
What about you? What are you hoping to read?
Please leave a comment-I love to hear from you!
It’s been a while since I’ve done a HP re-read. It’s a double-edged sword because I really like to read them all at once (with any series, really) and really get into it… but I think that makes me less likely to pick them up. With a never-ending TBR, not to mention other books I’m wanting to re-read as well, it’s just hard to commit to seven books!
Never Let Me Go is so good! And so not what I expected. I really want to read the Rosie Project, and I love the idea of a Harry Potter reread! I’m reading Joyce Maynard right now, Labor Day.
Ooh so many great titles! I’m eager to read The Husband’s Secret, and I’ll keep What Alice Forgot in mind too. And yes The Rosie Project looks so great. That was a big oversight that I left it off my list. Happy winter reading 🙂
I really liked Never Let Me Go. Enjoy!
I loved Bone Season and Dark Witch was an good start to the trilogy, enjoy the snow!
Sounds like a nice cosy start to the day! 🙂 You’ll have to let us know whether Sycamore Row is any good or not! I’ve just bought it for my mum’s Christmas! This week I’m going to start Unholy Night and I’m really hoping for Crown of Midnight, World After and Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe for Christmas!
Your list makes me want to curl up with a good book right away! Looks like you have a good winter planned. I’m intrigued by the Rosie Project, cute cover.
I loved Ishiguro’s The Remains of the Day, his writing is beautiful, and I’ve heard nothing but good things about Never Let Me Go. The Rosie Project does look like a lot of fun.

Hey, winter is great for curling up under a blanket with a book. It’s cold out there!
…I haven’t re-read HP recently… hmm…
I think I will do the reread over the holidays.
What a great list! I really loved Never Let Me Go (brilliant) and The Rosie Project just made me so happy. I need to read The Husband’s Secret — glad to hear you enjoyed it! And it’s always a good time for an HP reread! It’s been over a year for me… so I think I’m due! Enjoy. 🙂
Ah, the great Harry Potter reread! Have you been following Books Speak Volumes? She’s about to finish up her great reread and she’s been really enjoying it. I can’t wait to read The Rosie Project. Good luck with your list!
