As usual, most of the titles on my TBR are a result of the wonderful recommendations I receive from fellow bloggers or new books by favorite authors!

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 That Artsy Reader Girl for Top Ten Tuesday: Winter To Read List.

  1. I’ve got an e-ARC of THE NATURE OF FRAGILE THINGS. I’m excited to read it – I just haven’t gotten to it yet. I did read THE FOUR WINDS. It’s sad, but it’s very atmospheric and thought-provoking. I learned a lot from it. YOU HAVE A MATCH is another one I’m looking forward to as well. So many great books! Enjoy.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

  2. What a great list. I haven’t read any of them, but I am making notes here as I read to go and check them out.

    Some great books coming out in 2021, therefore it must be a better year than this. And if not, we all just remain indoors reading all the great books.
