I’m linking up today with That Artsy Reader Girl: Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books on My Winter 2022/2023 TBR.
What is your most anticipated winter read?
With all the books that are on my radar on a given day, it’s nice to pick out a few for an official TBR. Ten still leaves room for library holds that come in, occasional ARCs, or some mood reading.
Keep in mind that I’m not yet recommending the books on my official Winter TBR list…..check back often, though, because I will provide updates and links to reviews as I read them. For now, these are the reads that are on my winter 2022/2023 reading radar.
Find my Fall TBR update here. I read (or attempted to read) all the books on my fall TBR. I had two DNFs.

Winter 2022/2023 TBR
(ARC=Advanced Reader Copy)
Exiles by Jane Harper
Genre: Contemporary Mystery/Crime Fiction (Pub Date: 1/31/2023)
***UPDATE: 4 Stars. Slow, slow burn mystery and romance. Recommend audio format because the narrator is excellent and will keep you engaged with the story. Review of Exiles here.
The Little Wartime Library by Kate Thompson
Genre: Historical (WW11) Fiction. I think I’ve been waiting for the kindle version for about a year. (Kindle Pub Date: 2/21/2023)

Finding Me by Viola Davis

Fab list Carol! I’ve got a copy of The Little Wartime Library as well as Little Wing. Hope we both enjoy them!
Thanks Nicki! I’ve waited a year I think for Little Library to be available on kindle. Hope we love it!
Wow that’s a long time to wait!
Great list! I’m also super excited about EXILES, CODE NAME SAPPHIRE, and THE LITTLE WARTIME LIBRARY. I hope you enjoy all these.
Thanks Susan! Good reading ahead!
So many of my auto but authors on this list! Looks like some great reading coming in 2023!
What a good varied round up! always love your book recs Carol!!
Well….the recommending remains to be seen! By the way, your husband might love the Lincoln book. My husband loved it so much that he’s rereading it with me!
I just loved the Viola Davis memoir. Wow, she had such a tough life, but is also so inspirational. I hope you enjoy it, and all the other books on your list
Thanks for the encouragement! Maybe it was because of you I added it to my TBR???
Great list Carol. I like your mix of older and new. I really enjoyed The Violin Conspiracy, but it isn’t all that well known. I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks Carla! I’ve been seeing good reviews of Violin Conspiracy.
I’m glad to hear that. When I read it, it didn’t have a lot of reviews at all.
I loved Exiles, Carol. I’m sure that I read Winter Solstice a long time ago and it was great. I love Rosamunde Pilcher. I must check my shelves to see if I have a copy. Happy reading. ❤📚🎄
Happy to hear you loved Exiles! I know I read Shell Seekers decades ago, but I’ve always wanted to read Winter Solstice! This is the year!
I read Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher a couple of years ago and quite enjoyed it. The novel has a great sense of place with a cast of interesting characters.
Thanks for your thoughts Adrienne! 🙌
I failed so badly with my Autumn TBR list that i decided it really wasn’t worth me attempting a winter one! If I did though, I’d be keen to add the new Jane Harper. I’ve only just finished The Dry but enjoyed it so much I want to keep reading her now
I’m happy that Falk returns in this new release! (He was in the first 2).
Some seasonal TBRs are certainly more attainable than others! You probably have a mental TBR! My biggest obstacle with a TBR is that I’m an incorrigible mood reader!
Some intriguing titles and stunning covers.
Thanks Jamie! Happy reading in 2023!
