Top Ten Tuesday | My Winter 2018 TBR


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!

I say it every time and I’ll say it again: I love me a seasonal TBR. As 2018 has ended up being the year I got back into series, I thought I’d devote my winter TBR to the series I’d like to start. I own all but one of these books, so I really need to get reading. On with my TBR!


Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo: I’ve read and adored the Six of Crows duology but haven’t read the Grisha trilogy yet. With King of Scars due to be released in January I want to read the original trilogy so I can carry on with Bardugo’s new duology, especially as I believe one of the characters from Six of Crows is making an appearance in it…

The Diviners by Libba Bray: I’ve been meaning to read Libba Bray for years and still haven’t, and I’ve heard such good things about this series set in 1920s New York.

Red Sister by Mark Lawrence: Assassin. Nuns. That is all.

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black: I’ve seen people raving about this book this year, which I think is why I’ve been nervous to pick it up, but I’d like to read it before the second book is released.

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch: An oldie but goldie. This series is loved by so many people, and considering its setting is inspired by Venice, and I love Italy, I really should read it.


The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson: Another very popular series. I still haven’t read any Sanderson but I’d like to give this series a try because I continue to hear so much about it.

The Grace of Kings by Ken Liu: Hooray for Asian-inspired fantasy! I actually started this one and then got distracted, but I liked what I read so I’d like to return to it.

Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James: Here we have a sneaky peak of one of my most anticipated releases of 2019. I’ve been waiting for this book for years. It’s not out until February but that’s still winter and I want more African-inspired fantasy in my life.

Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend: Another series I’ve heard such good things about and one I still haven’t got around to!

Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson: I love the covers of this series but I still haven’t started it. It’s set in America during the Gold Rush, which is giving me western vibes, and considering I’ve enjoyed books like Blood Red Road and Dread Nation I think I’d really like this one, too.

Which books are on your winter (or summer!) TBR?

    Oooooooo this is such a good list, I’ve been wanting to read a lot of these too! I’ve been dying to get my hands on The Lies of Locke Lamora and Walk the Earth a Stranger because I’ve heard they’re excellent!! And I’m always curious about what people think of The Cruel Prince because I’m so split down the middle about it. It’s a fun book though! Hopefully you love all of these!!

    I’ve had The Lies of Locke Lamora on my shelf for years! I’ve heard such good things — but if I understand correctly (and I could be wrong), it’s an open-ended series, or at least not complete. I’ve been so reluctant lately to start a series without knowing whether I can finish it! Good luck with all your winter reading. 🙂

    “I’ve been meaning to read Libba Bray for years and still haven’” SO RELATABLE. Also, I hope you like all of the books on your list. Shadow and Bone was pretty solid and fun! I loved Six of Crows a lot more, though.
