TTT: Winter TBR List

TTT

Wow, I can’t believe it’s time for another TBR list, but I guess freezing temps are upon us. I didn’t do so well with my Fall TBR; out of twelve books on the list I read five. Hoping I do way better than that!

The first five books are ARCs that I’m planning to read, so I won’t go into detail on why they are on my TBR list this season.

6 Annihilation – Jeff VanderMeer

I recently saw the trailer for the movie coming out in February and I’m so pumped to read this book now. This seems to be the type of Sci-Fi that I dig. Can’t wait to write about both the movie and book later this winter.

7 The Bone Clocks – David Mitchell

I’m a huge fan of Cloud Atlas, but I was a tad lukewarm about Slade House. I’ve been pushing this book back all year, but I’m finally going to get into it before the year ends.

8 Her Body and Other Parties – Carmen Maria Machado

Most of the recommendations I get are from other book bloggers, so I was hyped that a friend of mine loved this book. This short story collection was already on my radar, but that made me want to read it right away. Just waiting for the library to send the book my way.

9 The Signature of All Things – Elizabeth Gilbert

I was on the fence with Eat, Pray, Love, but I was interested in the subject matter, so I decided to give Gilbert’s fiction a try. Maybe I’ll be more of a fan after it.

10 Sing, Unburied, Sing – Jesmyn Ward

I already had this book on my library holds list, but after Sing, Unburied, Sing won National Book Award for Fiction I’ve gotten antsy to read it. Don’t know if I’ll get it by the end of the year, so maybe it can open up the new one?

  1. The Bone Clocks and Signature of All Things – lucky you!
    I’ve heard good things about Sung, Unburied, Sing, even all the way over here in Australia.

    Love that your covers almost make a theme on their own – lots of lovely vines and trees.

  2. Ooooh. I was really intrigued by Annihilation (and am looking forward to the movie – the trailer does a good job of capturing my initial response to much of the book, which was ‘huh? what? waaaaait. No, wait. What?’ – but in a good way). I never read Eat, Pray, Love as it’s reeaaaally not my thing, but I enjoyed The Signature of All Things a lot – I think you’ll find it very different and I’ll be curious to hear your thoughts when you get to it.

    1. That is what I’m hoping for Annihilation!
      Eat, Pray, Love wasn’t bad, I was just far more interested in the countries she was visiting than her personal journey (sorry Gilbert). I’m glad to hear that her fiction is different.

  3. I LOVED Annihilation and the other two in the trilogy. I’m not a huge sci-fi reader but this was the kind that I like! It was like a literary cross between “LOST” and “The X-Files,” but creepier! I would reread those books. The Gilbert book is good too.
