Now is the winter of our content…


This week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday over at The Broke and Bookish is:

Top 10 books on my winter TBR:

Well, I have a lot of books that are coming up for reading and reviewing that I’m looking forward to. These are going to be my December/January reads and I’m so looking forward to them all and yes – some of these have already been published for a while but I’ve not read them yet and want to do so:

  1. The Ice Twins by S K Tremayne which is due out in January 2015
  2. The Walled City by Ryan Graudin – already out
  3. The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon – January 15
  4. The Just City by Jo Walton – January 2015
  5. The Eterna Files byΒ Leanna Renee Hieber which is described as the X Files meets Harry Dresden – February 2015
  6. Horns by Joe Hill – already out
  7. Golden Son by Pierce Brown – January 2015
  8. Half the World by Joe Abercrombie – Feb 2015
  9. The Iron Ghost by Jen Williams – Feb 2015
  10. The Damned by Andrew Pyper – don’t know if this still counts as Winter but I’m going to put it on here – March 2015

What books are you looking forward to for the next few months?

    Ooooh The Damned looks good. I’ve really liked some of the Andrew Pyper books I’ve read. Had The Demonologist on my shelf for like a year though…

    • lynnsbooks

      Well, this will be my first Pyper read so I’m looking forward to it.

    Great list! I have Golden Son on my list too, that may be the one I’m most excited about. The Eternal Files looks really good, I think I may have already added it to Goodreads. Have fun reading!

    • lynnsbooks

      Thanks. I’m really looking forward to Golden Son – I only recently read Red Rising so it’s all lovely and fresh for me.

    I love the title for your post haha. A lot of these look really good, I’m pretty excited about The Mime Order!

  4. Genki Jason

    Interesting list. Some of these titles look enticing. I’ve read three Andrew Pyper books – The Guardians, The Killing Circle, The Demonologist – and enjoyed them to a certain extent. Great set ups and descriptions that lead to feelings of paranoia and subtle urban horror but when the ending comes, it’s like the steam runs out.

    • lynnsbooks

      Maybe my first read of Pyper will be his first all steam ahead, no holds barred ending book! Do you not recommend that I read his earlier works then??

      • Genki Jason

        Absolutely, give them a shot. I liked them all but I found the atmosphere and character building were so strong that the endings felt lacking, sort of like when you watch an action film full of mayhem and violence and you get to the final battle and expect a helicopter full of bad guys to get shot down only for it to fly off and the lead character to walk in the other direction. Not that I begrudge quiet endings and I’m sort of glad that a book like the Demonologist ended the way it did.

      • lynnsbooks

        Well, I’ll start with this latest one and if I like it maybe I’ll go back and look at the others. We’ll see – perhaps check out the Demonologist – simply because I like the name!!

    I shouldn’t make lists of new books instead I am focusing on what I already have. I would love to read The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens and A Storm of Swords 2 by George R R Martin. I think they’ll be great winter reads. I hope you enjoy your winter reading πŸ™‚

    • lynnsbooks

      Those sound like great winter reads. I actually pretty much want to read David Copperfield by Dickens – I should buy it for kindle because I don’t want to read the book I have – too heavy!

  6. AudaciousTori @ InToriLex

    Walled City and Golden Son are definitely two I want to check out asap, but I’m currently trying to get through some older books now so well see. I know we all strugglle with prioritizing when we read books Here’s My Top Ten Tuesday

    • lynnsbooks

      Thanks – prioritising books – one of life’s pleasures!! I really think it’s a good idea to go back through the older books – I’m just too distracted by the new ones at the moment – need to sort my act out!
      Lynn πŸ˜€

  7. jenclair

    I really liked The Walled City and The Just City! But your list includes some that I haven’t heard of and sound good, so I’ll have to check on a couple of them!

    • lynnsbooks

      Ohh, I’m glad to hear you liked Walled City – I’m looking forward to that. I hope they’re all going to be good!
      Lynn πŸ˜€

  8. Claudia {SparrowHawk}

    What a gripping selection; hope you enjoy them!

    Sparrow’s TTT

    • lynnsbooks

      I’ll certainly give them all a good short! Here’s to hoping for them all being great books πŸ˜€

  9. Molly Mortensen

    I can’t wait for Golden Sun! Why did Netgalley have to just tease us? I had Horns on my list, but then I was afraid of the horror aspect. Eterna Files looks like it could be good and I’ve heard good things about Mime Order. Happy Reading! πŸ™‚

    • lynnsbooks

      Well, I haven’t read any Joe Hill so I think Horns should be a good start. NetGalley were indeed very provocative with that little trick weren’t they – I think it’s made us all want the book more than ever!!

  10. Maija Reads

    I’m interested in Samantha Shannon’s and Joe Abercrombie’s series, but I haven’t even read the first book of those series yet. πŸ™‚ I’ve only read Horns from all the books you’ve listed – I haven’t read anything from the authors of the other books!
    Haha, and I really like your choice of a title for this post!

    • lynnsbooks

      I’m looking forward to the Shannon and Abercrombie books – well, obviously I’m looking forward to all of these and now I’ve read a few other posts I realise I’ve missed quite a few off! Drat!!!

  11. Joey @ anotherafterthought

    I’m wondering to myself whether or not anyone else thought that Ryan Graudin was a guy at first (because I know I did…oops). Oh whaaaat–Shattered Seas #2 is out early next year too ~__~ le sigh. Time to go ahead and rearrange that TBR again!

    joey via. thoughts and afterthoughts

    • lynnsbooks

      Hi Joey
      To be honest I hadn’t really thought about that name but yes – I would think it was a male too. Yep, Shattered Seas early next year – woohoo!
      Lynn πŸ˜€

  12. Lisa (@TenaciousReader)

    Some great choices on here! I’m also waiting on Half the World and Golden Son. And I love Joe Hill’s books, so Horns is a great choice! Although NOS4A2 is a bit more festive πŸ™‚

    • lynnsbooks

      Haha – I would have never have thought NOS4A2 was festive – that’s great – do you think I should swap them and read that one first?
      Lynn πŸ˜€

      • Lisa (@TenaciousReader)

        I think this coming month is the perfect time to read about Christmasland (major feature in NOS4A2)! πŸ™‚ But I also love Horns, so I will never say its a bad time to read it.

      • lynnsbooks

        Christmasland – omg – sounds ace!

  13. caitlinstern

    None of these are familiar to me, but there are some dang interesting looking covers on here…

    • lynnsbooks

      Wow – that’s a major surprise – you usually know all my choices!
      There are definitely some good covers on there.
      Lynn πŸ˜€

  14. Tabitha (Not Yet Read)

    I really need to read my copy of The Copper Promise – I love those covers for these books. I just saw Eterna Files and Just City on yesterday I think I might go in for Eterna Files. I need to read Red Rising before Golden Sun officially comes out arhhhhh so much to read.

    • Nathan

      How did you get The Copper Promise!?! Half a World for me. Like, need it right now!

      • lynnsbooks

        Yeahhhhh, Half a World right now would be awesome!
        Lynn πŸ˜€

    • lynnsbooks

      Yes, so much to read!! I loved The Copper Promise I can’t deny it and can’t wait for the next one.
      Lynn πŸ˜€

  15. Mogsy

    So many great books on there…I’d love to get my hands on The Iron Ghost but something tells me I’ll be waiting in vain for a US release date when The Copper Promise doesn’t even have one. To the Book Depository I will go!

    • lynnsbooks

      No release date for the Copper Promise? Wow – I hadn’t realised. Yep, there are lots of great books on there – and, maybe I should have pointed out – I don’t have them all!! I would just like to HAVE them all!
      Lynn πŸ˜€

  16. romeorites

    The Iron Ghost! Gosh I cant wait for that one. I recommend everyone who hasnt read The Copper Promise get thee to a Book Depository. Its wonderful.

    • lynnsbooks

      I agree – it’s a really good book and I can’t wait to read Iron Ghost.
