Today’s topic is books that are on my winter TBR. I’m super excited because my Christmas break starts tomorrow, and I’ll have 18 uninterrupted days of reading (this does include weekends).

Just checked this out from the library today and will probably start reading it tonight.

I’ve had a difficult time trying to read this. I’ve read about 70 pages, but I absolutely hate what my baby (Aelin) is going through. But I’m hoping to get through this over the break, and then start reading Sarah J. Maas’s new novel House of Earth and Blood.

An advanced ebook I have that I am super excited to read!

Another eARC that I need to read. I actually have started it just need to finish it. This month has just been too busy.

I checked this out from the library as well tonight, and I cannot wait to read it!! Sci-fi western with lesbians, yes please!

At the library I work at, some of us review books for the Heart of Texas Literature Quarterly. This is one of the books I’m reviewing. It’s about when American troops killed four American students protesting the Vietnam War. From what I can tell flipping through the pages, it’s mostly told through poems and free verse.

As with Kent State, this is also a book I’m reviewing for the Heart of Texas Literature.

I really need to get on top of my eARC’s. Here’s another one I’ll be reading over the winter season.

A book that I’ve placed on hold and hope to be able to pick up before the library closes.

Last week this was on my TTT Holiday themed TBR, this week I remembered that I actually own it. So, I’ll definitely be reading this.

TTT | Holiday TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly topic hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.

Today’s topic is a holiday freebie one, and I’m not one to read a lot of any holiday themed books. So, here are some holiday books that I would like to read.

I love the Victorian era and Victorian Christmas Ghost Stories sounds like so much fun to read with a cup of tea on a cold winter night! I also just found out that there are multiple volumes of this!

Definitely not the normal holiday read, but it sounds like a fun read around the holidays when everything is so stressful.

I love love love Agatha Christie so of course , I had to include Hercule Poirot’s Christmas on the list.

Christmas, poetry, Maya Angelou what more needs to be said?!

The Family Stone is one of my favorite Christmas movies, and this seems to have a similar theme. What can go wrong at Christmas when everyone is forced to quarantine together?

I’m not just choosing this one because the character has the same name as me…

A retelling of the classic A Christmas Carol but in YA form and the Scrooge character is already dead!

I’ve known about the Christmas Truce for years, but it would be nice to learn a bit more about it as I only know that it happened.

Love Madeleine L’Engle, and this is sure to be amazing!

I’m a sucker for books about self-care, but I’m also interested in this to see what it says about getting back to the authentic meaning of Christmas. I’m especially interested since I’m not a huge believer in God.

I’m all for learning new things, and as I’ve never actually thought about the reason behind our Christmas traditions, it’ll be nice to learn all about it.

Happy Reading Lovelies!
