Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on my Winter TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish.

I’m going to be honest from the outset: it’s unlikely that I will manage to read ten books over the winter. Between the craziness that is Christmas and my writing commitments, I’ll be doing well if I manage to read half that number of books. After all, I have barely made a dent in my Autumn TBR. Therefore this week’s top ten is going to be a more realistic top five. I’ll also add in a couple of books I’m looking forward to, which haven’t been released as yet.

Into the Water – Paula Hawkins

Like millions of others I loved The Girl on the Train. I can’t wait to read this next book by Paula Hawkins.

Days to the Gallows: A Novel of the Hartford Witch Panic – Katherine Spada Basto

This looks like the perfect book with which to indulge my love of historical fiction based around witch trials.

Warrior Daughter – Janet Paisley

I read Paisley’s White Rose Rebel a few years ago and recently stumbled across her other works on Goodreads. A novel based in Iron Age Scotland – perfect for winter nights.

By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept – Paolo Coelho

Coelho’s Veronika Decides to Die is one of my all-time favourite novels. It’s Coelho’s titles which always catch my eye and I’m very intrigued by this one.

Love at First Flight – Tess Woods

Something a bit lighter and perhaps not my usual genre, but I have heard good things about Woods’ books. I suspect this will be the perfect read to go with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.

And I’m really looking forward to…

By the Time We’re Forty and A Case of Serendipity, both by K.J Farnham. No release date for these novels as yet, but both books now have pages on Goodreads. As I have enjoyed all of Farnham’s previous works, I can’t wait to read both of these and I’m sure they will appear on a future TBR list.

While you’re here…

Thursday November 30th 2017 will see the release of my third novel, Ethersay. To celebrate I am holding an online launch party on Facebook, to which you’re all invited! Join the party here, and apologies for the shameless plug.

So what about your own Winter TBR lists? Please feel free to share your own plans in the comments or via social media.
