Even though winter is still a good month away, I’m glad this is the topic for TTT this week! It gives me a chance to get excited for winter vacation and catching up on my reading!! I feel like since I started working full-time, it now takes me a week or more to read 1 book when it used to take 2-3 days. But no complaining! I’m so thrilled and thankful to be employed again, I just wish I could read all night instead of having to sleep ;)
So, here you go!
Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR List:
Full Steam Ahead by Karen Witemeyer – For some reason I LOVE reading western historical romances during Christmastime. I think it’s the weirdest thing since most of them take place during the summer, but then again I think they’re the perfect reads since they instill that warm, family-time mood. Karen Witemeyer is one of my favorite authors, and I actually just checked out Full Steam Ahead from the library yesterday! I may read it BEFORE winter starts ;)
A Match Made in Texas – To continue on with the western historical romances theme, this book is a compilation of novellas by four different authors: Karen Witemeyer (Full Steam Ahead, The Short Straw Bride, To Win Her Heart), Mary Connealy (Kincaid Brides series, Lassoed in Texas series), Regina Jennings (Ladies of Caldwell County series, A Most Inconvenient Marriage–which I’m reading during Thanksgiving break!), and Carol Cox (Truth Be Told, Trouble in Store). I’m particularly excited about reading Witemeyer’s novella since it is a spin-off of The Short Straw Bride, my favorite book of hers.
A Sweet Montana Christmas by Roxanne Snopek – I don’t know much about this book or the author, but I saw it on Netgalley as a Read Now and decided I needed to read it during Christmas :) Like I said, I’m a sucker for western romances this time of year.
The Life Intended by Kristin Harmel – The Goodreads synopsis compares this book to P.S. I Love You only a bit darker. I requested this book to review and I’m excited to actually open it up!
Legend by Marie Lu – I just checked this out from the library yesterday as well! I’ve heard so many good things about it and picked it up on a whim.
The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick – I was a HUGE fan of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (and it’s what got me into watching YouTube series). This diary came out earlier this year but I never saw it anywhere because I was in France. But yesterday at the library I saw it on the “New Fiction” shelf and grabbed it up in a heartbeat. Can’t wait to dive back into the sarcastic and theatrical mind of Lizzie Bennet!
Can’t Always Get What You Want by Chelsey Krause – I know, this book cover does not fit the typical winter read, but it’s on my shelf for review and I think I’m going to enjoy it. It’s all about letting go of your past and healing broken hearts.
Soulprint by Megan Miranda – The book summary describes Soulprint as part Minority Report and part Looper, both of which are movies I really enjoyed. So that means I should love this one! Plus, the cover is pretty :)
The Dress Shop of Dreams by Menna Van Praac – This book sounds like a warm and fuzzy read, and those are the types of books I love reading in the winter! Maybe it’s to help overcome the cold ;)
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty – Ok, my Secret Santa sent me this book last December, but I never got around to reading it :( But now that Liane Moriarty’s other novel has been out for a while and it also looks like an interesting read, I actually want to read The Husband Secret and find out if this is the type of author I’m going to enjoy.
What books are on your winter TBR list? Is there a specific genre you find yourself turning to whenever it’s cold outside?

Great list! I really enjoyed The Husband’s Secret. I hope that you like it too. I don’t particularly turn to a certain genre in Winter. I just love curling up with any book! :D
Thanks! Every time I see it on my shelf I’m like, “Ohhh I need to read that!”
Hope you enjoy The Secret Diary of Lizzy Bennet, it really adds to the web series!
Warm and fuzzy books are definitely perfect for the winter season! (though I also read a lot of Russian-related books around this time too; something about the weather and the cold, lol)
Happy reading! :) My TTT
That’s interesting! I really have no experience with Russian Lit. Any recommendations?
No real French-y books, though, this winter?
Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday!
Well, I will be finishing Journey to the Center of the Earth (in French!) next month :) I’m sure I’ll fit another French read in there somewhere.
I read Lizzie Bennet a few months ago and it was cute! Hope you enjoy it!
Thanks! I’m sure I will :) It’ll probably make me want to rewatch the show!
I haven’t read any of these, but it looks like a great list! Here’s my TTT. Happy reading!
I’ll definitely be reading Soul Print as well and hopefully Legend someday also now that the series is finished!
I’ve only read one book by Karen Witemeyer, but own a couple others and always but all her books on my TBR…. hmmm I really need to read more of her books!!
Good luck with your TBR! =)
Thanks! Which of her books did you read? My favorites are Short Straw Bride and To Win Her Heart.
