There are so very many books on my TBR shelf. I think I have well over 100 books in my house that I would like to read. These are the books that I am hoping to read this winter.
Books off the shelf:
I loved both Boy21 and Sorta Like a Rock Star. I am super excited to read Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick and was happy to get a good deal on Black Friday so that I could get a copy of this one.
I am a little embarrassed to admit that I have not read any books by Ellen Hopkins. I have Crank and Glass on my shelf at home and need to read them so I can get them to my classroom.
The Dark and Hollow Places is a title on my dystopian challenge list. I have read the first two books in the The Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy and want to finish the series.
I have been avoiding Out of My Mind because of the content. My stepbrother, who had severe cerebral palsy, passed away last December. I was a little afraid that this book would bring things a little too close for comfort. I am still a little nervous about reading the book, but I think I am now a little more able to deal with it now.
Books on my Kindle:
I am traveling to Spain over the holidays to spend Christmas with my in-laws. I know I will have time to read so many of my Kindle titles will get read while I am traveling.
The Silver Linings Playbook looks like such a great book. I am really interested to read this adult book by Matthew Quick.
I am trying to read my way through all the Printz award and honor books. On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta is a book that I want to get to soon.
The Forsaken looks so good! I have been completely intrigued by this book for over a year now. It is a title that I have had on my Kindle for a while and I just keep forgetting about it.
I have never heard a single negative thing being said about any of these books. I loved Eleanor and Park and cannot wait to read another one by Rainbow Rowell. A.S. King is also an author I have recently discovered. Ask the Passangers was amazing and I have big hopes for Everybody Sees the Ants. I am also very interested to read The Miseducation of Cameron Post.
I have SO MANY books on my TBR shelf and waiting for me on the Kindle and yet I keep going to bookstores and looking at the daily deals on Amazon. I hope I can at least get through these top ten books this winter.
Time to curl up with a nice mug of hot cocoa and get to reading!
What is on your TBR pile? I would love to hear from you in the comments.
