Top Ten Tuesday – Winter TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I’m not great at making a list and sticking to it, especially this time of year, but the first two on my list are must reads by the end of the year.  The rest are just me playing catch up with a few series and the holidays are a great time to catch up with old friends 🙂

  1. My Classics Club Spin was Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut.  It’s a short one so it shouldn’t be too hard to fit in one afternoon.
  2. I accepted How To Build a Piano Bench by Ruthi Postow Birch for review and I’m a little slow in getting to it so that’s a priority.
  3. I need to read the third in the Ravenels series by Lisa Kleypas, Devil in Spring
  4. so that I can be ready for #4 in February, Hello Stranger.
  5. I want to read the newest Bailey Weggins book by Kate White. Even If It Kills her is the 7th in the series and it’s been 5 long years since Bailey has made and appearance.
  6. The Shimmering Road by Charlie Cates is a follow up to The Gates of Evangeline, which I loved.
  7. I need to catch up with my old friend Lincoln Rhyme in his 13th book, The Burial Hour by Jeffery Deaver.
  8. Same with Lucas Davenport in his 27th outing.  Golden Prey by John Sandford.
  9. Same with my guy Jack Reacher in Lee Child’s Nothing to Lose.  I’m behind in this series but don’t mind taking my time.
  10. And while I’m catching up with my favorite alpha guys I can’t forget local Milan Jacovich.  I love this mystery series set in Cleveland and written by Less Roberts.  A Shoot in Cleveland is the 9th and that would get me halfway through the series.

So, kind of a boring list for all of you but a good focus for me 🙂

Do you have a list of what you want to read this winter or are you winging it like I usually do?

  1. I always wing it – when I’ve tried to plan my reading, I’ve never stuck to my plan. I need to catch up with Lucas Davenport and try a Kate White book.

  2. I’ve read several of the listed authors but aren’t reading them currently. I have moved on for no other reason than I’m reading other authors instead. There are just too many!

  3. I’ve been thinking of some holiday horror this month along with a self-help book or two. I’d like to keep December light. I’ve read some pretty heavy books over the last two months and need a mood changer. Good luck with your TBR list this next month! My classic spin is Hamlet! Ha! I went to the library and grabbed a bunch of Shakespeare books to help me with my reading….ha!

  4. Love the Ravenel series and looking forward to Hello In Spring. The Bailey Wiggins’ series is on my TBR list. Just gotta pick up book one! I tend to read more light, happy ending reads to close out the year.

  5. I’m so out of it. I didn’t even know there was a Classics Club Spin. Maybe it’s better I didn’t know about it. I do have a copy of Mother Night. I hope you enjoy it! The Shimmering Road sounds good. I hope you are able to get to all of these, Stacy! Have a great weekend!
