Happy blogmas day 8, friends!
Today I wanted to share with you some wintery books I’m hoping to get to!
I love the idea of doing mini seasonal TBRs! I think I’ll be doing more of these in 2019!
But here are five books I’m hoping to read this winter (December, January, February).
The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand — This is a holiday story inspired by A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and is one I’m so excited to read this December! I don’t really read many holiday books, but after hearing so much praise for this one, I cannot wait to give it a read!
Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett — This book just screams winter and I cannot wait to read it this year! I meant to read it last winter, but I just never got to it. I love the idea of a fantasy book taking place in the mountains and if I remember correctly, this was in the “All that Sass” FairyLoot box which means we better get lots of snark!
Stain by A. G. Howard — The latest gothic retelling by A. G. Howard, Stain is a dark retelling of The Princess and the Pea and is one I am so excited to read! While many people thing of fall and Halloween when they hear gothic retelling, something about this one actually screams winter to me. I’m not sure if it’s the aesthetics of the cover or what, but I’m hoping to read this one shortly after its January release!
In An Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire — Book four in the Wayward Children series follows Katherine Lundy, the second in command at Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children. For those of you up to date with the series, you probably know all about Lundy…well kind of. This book follows Lundy as she goes through her door and visits the goblin market. I am in love with this world and seriously cannot wait to read more!
Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus — I loved One of Us is Lying and I am so excited to read more from Karen M. McManus! I love thrillers rooted in secrets and lies and I am SO excited to see how this premise is explored. As a small town girl myself, I know how dark these towns can be, especially with secrets.
What books are you hoping to read this winter (or summer for my friends down under)?
