Did I read my winter TBR? | 2022

Hello friends! I’ll be sharing my spring TBR for Top Ten Tuesday tomorrow so, as always, it’s time to take a look at my previous seasonal TBR and see how I did…

The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden

The Wolf in the Whale by Jordanna Max Brodsky

Jade Legacy by Fonda Lee

Elatsoe by Darcie Little Badger

Northern Wrath by Thilde Kold Holdt

Legendborn by Tracy Deonn

Dark Rise by C.S. Pacat

Thief’s Magic by Trudi Canavan

Amari and the Night Brothers by B. B. Alston

Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb


Well, it’s safe to say that this TBR was mostly a fail. On the plus side the two books I did read were 5 star reads – which is always nice for series finales! – but I made the mistake of putting quite a few chunky books on my winter TBR at a time when I wasn’t really in the mood to get lost in a chunky story.

I did borrow the audiobook of Thief’s Magic from the library and gave it a try but, sadly, I set it aside after a couple of chapters. I don’t know for certain if it was the writing I didn’t like or the narration, so it might be one I try again in future, but for now it’s not one I’m interested in!

I’m also currently reading Legendborn and I’ve made a start on Northern Wrath, so they’re both books I’m planning to cross off my TBR this year, but since January I’ve been loving taking advantage of my library and I’ve been borrowing more and more books rather than focusing on the books I already have on my shelves.

What did you read over winter?

    Hey, the fact that the ones you read were 5-star reads makes this list sound like a winner to me, for what it’s worth! πŸ˜„ I’ve read 5 of my winter TBR picks so far, and am currently working through 4 of them. I’m hoping to finish at least 2 or 3 more before Spring but I only have a few days, so I dunno if that will happen!

    I think having both of the books you read be 5-stars can be considered a total win! 😍 Legendborn has been on my TBR for what feels like forever and I was hoping to read it this year as well. I hope you enjoy it! πŸ˜ƒ
