Winter Reading List


We have a bit of snow on the ground now, and the nip in the air that told us it was Fall further plunged down to a chill that announces the coming of an even more frigid temperatures. With all the tv ads about the holidays reminding us that it’s just around the corner, it made me think that once again, another year is coming to a close, and I have a few books that I feel an urgent need to read before the year is out.

(Okay, I wanted to read everything in my TBR, but hey. That’s really impossible.)

I’ve never been one to make goals. Primarily because I don’t have the discipline to stick to anything. These books on my list are the ones that every time I see them on my shelves, I feel the irresistible urge to forget which book I’m on at the moment and damn the consequences.

So as soon as possible, these books are the ones I’m going to prioritize.

Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan

Sweet Tooth is a story about an MI5 operative who fell in love with the person she’s trying to spy on. This will be my first McEwan, but hopefully not the last. I just think it has an interesting plot point, and it will be my first read that features a spy.

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

This trilogy just put out its last instalment, which I thought is great since I don’t have to wait for another book to come out. I’m sure this needs no introduction since most of you have probably read this one already.

When the World was Flat by Ingrid Jonach

This book doesn’t look very well received based on the ratings in Goodreads, but I’m curious about the story. It’s supposedly Sci-Fi based on Einstein’s theories, so hopefully, I won’t be bogged down with all the pseudo-intellectual stuff.

 Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen

A woman having an affair with EAP, became EAP’s wife’s confidante. The plot thickens.

Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald

I’ve been curious about this novel since I saw it at the bookstore. I’ve just put off reading it for numerous reasons. Keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll be able to finish this one before the year is out.

Anyway, that’s my winter reading list.

Are you making one?
