Winter Reading Season TBR (2019)
***This post contains Amazon affiliate links.
For winter, I have four out of ten nonfiction titles on my TBR because of the wonderful recommendations I noted during Nonfiction November! I’m not a seasonal reader, but I’m eager to hunker down with some great nonfiction selections this winter!
I never plan more than ten titles for my quarterly TBR lists because I need to leave time for mood reading and review commitments. These ten books are a priority on a much longer general TBR.
What is your most anticipated read this winter?
I’m linking up today with Girlxoxo and Traveling With T for Month of Faves: Winter Reading, and also with That Artsy Reader Girl for Top Ten Tuesday: Winter To Read List.
Winter 2019 TBR
***UPDATE: I’m DNFing this at 30%. Child abuse is too sad for me.
***UPDATE: 4.5 Stars. A compelling and memorable read. Full review here.
***UPDATE: 5 Stars. A compelling and heartbreaking read. Full review here.
***UPDATE: 3 Stars. A poignant multilayered family drama. Brief Goodreads review here.
***UPDATE: 4 Stars. With candor and insight, Trevor Noah shares honestly about the realities of living as a mixed race person during the Apartheid years. It was informative to experience life through his eyes, and he forced me to think about issues I’ve never thought about before. (Some profanity, abuse, and animal cruelty) Review coming.
***UPDATE: 3.5 Stars. Sweet MG read.
***UPDATE: 4 Stars. Reminiscent of On the Come Up. Review to come.
