Today’s Topic is: : Books on My Winter 2021 To-read List (or summer if you’re in the southern hemisphere) Okay, so I decided I’ll mostly go with the books I’m currently reading because *lol* I want to finish them all either before the year is over or during winter! So wish me luck! I’ll need it. *lol* T_T
1.) The Gravity of Us – Phil Stamper
I’m currently about 24% into the book and I alreadly like Cal! I have no idea where „The Gravity Of Us“ is heading but I’m very intrigued by the concept of a Mars mission and hidden secrets that shouldn’t be exposed into the light of day. Also a m/m love story! I’m always here for a good LGBTQAI+ content. 😉
2.) Mexican Gothic – Silvia Moreno-Garcia
I was supposed to read this in October but then my library had troubles to get it in time and in the end I borrowed it in the middle of November and only started to read it at the end of it. I recently watched „Crimson Peak“ and the old house and the mystery surrounding it kinda reminds me of the movie. I guess we’ll have to see where this is going. So far I’m 23% in and I didn’t get scared… yet. *lol*
3.) A Court of Silver Flames – Sarah J. Maas
My reading buddies (Hello Jello & Kaitlyn!!) and I are sooo close to finishing this!! We’ve made it to 83% and I really hope we’ll be able to finish ACOSF during the winter holidays. We started to read this in April but life always seems to get in our way. >_< Still, we’ve come so far we’ll read the rest too. =)
4.) Now I Rise – Kiersten White
Yes, this is also on my currently read. And yes I have way too many books on my currently read. I’m aware of that. *LOL* But argh! I was in a reading slump and instead of sitting it out and waiting for it to be over I tried to fight it by starting new books and now I have the salad. XD Still, I really like this so far, but I’m very worried about my babies Radu and Lada. Guess only time will tell if they’ll finally find their happiness.
5.) Rule of Wolves – Leigh Bardugo
I’m sure you already guessed it: Yep, it’s on my current list too. T_T (Someone send help! Please! *lol*) This said I’m kinda undecided whether I like the direction in which this is heading or not. There doesn’t seem to be all too much of a plot but the characters most definitely make up for it. XD Can’t wait to see if my Zolai ship will sail. ❤ I really hope it will even though I have no idea how!
6.) A Small Hotel – Suanne Laqueur
I am still reading this! *mental breakdown* Why am I such a horrible reader?! I was supposed to finish this in September but you know…. life! >_< I love Suanne’s books but my reading slump was horrible and I just couldn’t read „A Small Hotel“ because I knew I wouldn’t be able to give it all the attention it deserves. Still, I’ll finish it before the year is over! You have my word on this, Suanne! Promise and pinky swear!
7.) The House of Hades – Rick Riordan
And here comes the last book on my currently reading! „The House of Hades“! You know you’re in a really terrible reading slump when you can’t even read one of Uncle Rick’s books! *lol* Guess that’s what I learned the hard way those last couple of months! T_T I’m so ready to dive into this book now that my slump is over though so my precious sons Nico and Percy here I come! ❤
8.) Girls of Paper And Fire – Natasha Noan
In My December TBR video on BookTube I asked you which should be the third book I read in December and in the end „Girls of Paper and Fire“ made it on my TBR! So I’m totally ready to tackle this over the Christmas holidays because I’ve been dying to read this f/f fantasy book for ages!! (Don’t ask me why it always takes me so long to get to books! I dunno! *lol*)
9.) The Final Empire – Brandon Sanderson
„The Final Empire“ also made it on my winter TBR and since I’ve never ever read a single Brandon Sanderson book before I’m totally ready to find out what all the hustle and bustle is about! I’ve been told that this is a good start to read Sanderson’s books so I hope I’ll love it as much as all the other people who read this series before me.
10.) Frankly In Love – David Yoon
This doesn’t only have a fake dating trope but is also about Korean culture and when I found it in my library I just couldn’t resist to borrow it. I’m very curious if this is as good as it sounds and I guess the only way to find out is by actually reading the book, so this is definitely on my winter TBR too. =)
So what about you? Which kind of books landed on your winter TBR and do we have some in common? Did you already read some of the ones that are on my list and if yes, did you like them? Did you ever fall into a horrible reading slump like mine and how did you get out of it? (Most definitely not by adding even more books to your list, I bet. I kinda dug my own grave there. RIP V.! *lol*)
Talk to me and let me know!
And as always take care and stay healthy and safe!
