Now is the winter of our content, made glorious summer by this array of books


Every Tuesday over at  The Broke and Bookish we all get to look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  This week’s topic is:

This is a nice easy one.  My upcoming reads for December, January and February include the following books that I’m really looking forward to:

  1. Firestorm by Lucy Hounsom
  2. The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air) by Holly Black
  3. The Queen of All Crows by Rod Duncan
  4. The Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson
  5. A Time of Dread by John Gwynne
  6. The Girl in The Tower by Katherine Arden
  7. Paris Adrift by E.J. Swift
  8. The Toy Makers by Robert Dinsdale
  9. Mister Tender’s Girl by Carter Wilson
  10. The Gone World by Tom Sweterlitsch

    The Cruel Prince has been getting some great reviews. I`m also very intrigued by “The Toy Makers”.

      I’m really looking forward to The Cruel Prince – it’s my next book. 😀

    I do love winter – I’m not convinced I really read more through the cold than I do through the summer, but it seems like such a good mental fit (and certainly Christmas as a kid was me and my new books curled up for days!)

    Looks like you’ve got some good company lined up 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah – I love Christmas reading, it feels lovely and indulgent.
      Lynn 😀

    There are so many books I want to read on your list! The Cruel Prince, The Queen of all Crows, and Paris Adrft just to mentuon a few. Looks like its going to be an awesome winter😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      There are so many good books coming out – I’m quite excited to get to them all.

    I have an arc of Mister Tender’s Girl and need to make some time for it even if it didn’t make the list this week. #bookproblems

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah – book problems – I know what you mean. Of course, I’d sooner have book problems tbh – they feel like good problems (if that’s not too daft a thing to say).

    • @lynnsbooks

      By the way – tried to leave a couple of comments on your blog recently but don’t know if they registered – wondered if they were going into your spam??

    I really hope that you enjoy these books when you get around to reading them.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks – I hope so too and the same back at you with your winter reads.
      Lynn 😀

  8. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    You will indeed not care for the cold of winter since these amazing titles will keep you inside visiting other worlds… 😉

  9. Anastasia

    I’ve not even read the Bear and the Nightingale and now you’re telling me that Katherine Arden has written another book! The Cruel Prince sounds interesting as well.

    Happy winter reading 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, I was so happy to see The Girl in the Tower. Loved The Bear and the Nightingale and very much looking forward to the Holly Black book.
      Lynn 😀

    This is a great list, Lynn. I need to catch up with Holly Black – she seems to write books that I constantly lust after… And I STILL have John Gwynne’s Malice on my TBR pile unread and pristine. Perhaps I can get hold of them during this winter! Enjoy these offerings:)

  11. Aj @ Read All The Things!

    Some of those covers look very wintery. I hope you get a chance to read all these!

  12. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    This is an awesome list! I have a bunch of these on my radar but only a couple that are on the TBR, so I’m definitely looking forward to your thoughts to see if I should promote any of them to the “must read” pile 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m looking forward to all of these – quite exciting really.
      Lynn 😀

  13. Lisa

    What a great list! I didn’t know Holly Black had a new book coming out — so exciting! I have to make sure to track down a copy. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes do – I love Holly Black – her fae books are so good.
      Lynn 😀

  14. Caitlin Stern

    I forgot about The Girl in the Tower, but I am very excited to read it! 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, that’s going to be one of my next reads and I can’t wait.
      Lynn 😀

  15. pagesandtea

    This is a great list. I just started reading The Bear and the Nightingale, and when I realized The Girl in the Tower is out soon too I ordered that from the library straight away.
    The Toy Makers was another one that caught my eye, it sounds so good. Will have to see if the library can get that one too.
    Enjoy your books 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks – hope you enjoy The Bear and the Nightingale – let me have a link to your review when it’s posted so that I don’t miss it and can come and check out your thoughts.
      Lynn 😀

    Great list! I just finished The Girl in the Tower and absolutely loved it. I’ve always been wanting to read The Cruel Prince. It sounds amazing!

    • @lynnsbooks

      So glad to hear you loved The Girl in the Tower – I shall be starting that shortly. I love Holly Black so I’m really excited about the Cruel Prince – plus I love stories about the fae.
      Lynn 😀

    I’m afraid I haven’t heard of any of these, however many of them have some wonderful covers, especially The Girl in the Tower 🙂 Happy Winter reading!

    • @lynnsbooks

      The Girl in the Tower is the second book in series by Katherine Arden – her first was The Bear and the Nightingale. I think you would really enjoy both. Beautifully written and based on Russian folklore/fairytales. Lovely reads.
      Lynn 😀

  18. Katie @Just Another Girl and Her Books

    Looks like a great list of books.

    Have a great week.
