Welcome to another week of Top Ten Tuesday! TTT is a bookish meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish in which bloggers are given a topic each week and are encouraged to list their top ten on that topic.
This weeks TTT is all about the books on my winter to-be-read list. I’m not big into reading books with Christmas themes or snowy covers just because it’s winter, so don’t expect to find any on this list!
As always, leave comments and post links to your own TTT!
The Man in the Crooked Hat by Harry Dolan
It’s funny because from when I started reading till college I didn’t like mysteries at all. I started with the classics by Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Dashiell Hammett. The last couple of years I’ve been getting in to modern writers, and I’m hearing good things about Harry Dolan. The title itself hooks me in.
The Man From the Diogenes Club by
Zombie Nazis, living snowmen, and a mastermind with an evil plot mixed up with a psychic investigator? This could turn out to be either really good or really, really bad.
Batman: Nightwalker (DC Icons #2) by Marie Lu
I have yet to read the first book in this series (Wonder Woman) and the second one is already coming out?! Augh. These are focused on superheroes just as they start out and are still learning to become heroes.
Everless (Untitled #1) by Sara Holland
This book reminds of “In Time”, the Justin Timberlake movie that was released in 2011. I’m really hoping that it’s not too similar; as in the author changed the characters, twerked the plot, and slapped a new title on it. That happens too often for my taste, and I really want to like this if it’s going to be a series!
The Disturbed Girl’s Dictionary by NoNieqa Ramos
I’m all over books that are in weird formats; especially the verse books. This one is written like a dictionary. It’s about a girl listed as ‘disturbed’ at her school with a dad in prison, a brother taken by social services, a not-there mom, and a need to protect her friend with a machete. Hm.
A Guide for Murdered Children by Sarah Sparrow
This one is a supernatural/mystery centering around murdered children. Apparently the ghost kids want revenge and inhabit adult bodies to cause a bit of chaos, all while a few cops probably find themselves in over their heads. And the cover is so pretty and innocent!
You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone by Rachel Lynn Solomon
Gah. I don’t know if I want to read this one or not! It’s been a long time since I’ve read a really sad book, and this one sounds like it’s going to be a real tear jerker. I’m hoping that it DOES focus more on family than romance as it seems to promise.
