My Winter 2017/18 Reading List

I love making these quarterly to-read list posts. It's always fun to think about what I feel like reading, and see what new books are due out, and browse my very long Goodreads TBR -- even if I don't end up following it completely (I do try!).

I had a pretty topsy-turvy reading year in 2017, due in large part, I think, to focusing on new releases. So for the first couple months of 2018, I'm going to read predominantly backlist. That shouldn't be a problem -- there are approximately 10 zillion older books on my to-read list.

I'm linking up with The Broke and the Bookish to share my list for Top Ten Tuesday.

winter 2018 to read list

1. Illustrated Harry Potter books 1-3
I just had to have the first two books on their release days -- and then they wound up sitting neglected on my shelves! I guess I was sort of saving them? For what, I'm not sure. But I recently bought the illustrated "Prisoner of Azkaban" and I decided the time has finally come to do a HP re-read and savor all three.

2. A Treacherous Curse by Deanna Raybourn (Veronica Speedwell #3)
This is the one winter release that I absolutely must read, despite my commitment to backlist. I love this historical mystery series!

3. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn #1)
I've been in a major fantasy/sci-fi mood lately and this is the first of a few books in that category on my list. I've had this one on my TBR for quite a while; I'm fairly new to the fantasy genre, but I'm pretty sure it's time for me to finally read some Brandon Sanderson!

4. Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb (Farseer #1)Another fantasy series I've been dying to start!

5. Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie (Imperial Radch #1)
This sci-fi series is a fairly new discovery for me, and it immediately went on my to-read list!

6. The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
My Broke and Bookish Secret Santa gave me this well-loved WWII novel last year, and I never got around to reading it! It's time.

7. Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
A Broke and Bookish Secret Santa gift from two years ago. Sensing a trend... (though if you read the blog regularly, you'll know I'm horrible about reading my own books).

8. Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
Ahem. See #6-7.

9. A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman
I have heard only good things about this book and I'm so excited to read it!

10. Adulthood is a Myth by Sarah Anderson
I've been wanting to read this comic collection forever, but my library in Hawaii didn't have it. I just checked again recently, and it turns out they finally got in this book and the second in the series, which came out in 2017. Yay!


  1. I have the illustrated HP books on my Christmas list so I hope I get them this year. I have been bad about reading my TBTB secret santa books too!! Hope you enjoy all these!

  2. My Book Club just read A Man Called Ove. We loved the writing style and the beauty in the words as well as the story. I hope you get to enjoy it soon!

  3. I hope you get a chance to read all these! I just got a copy of A Man Called Ove, so I’ll be reading that one too.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  4. Loved Life After Life and The Nightingale. I love anything Fredrik Backman but somehow haven't read A Man Called Ove so I'm looking forward to that one as well. Great list!

  5. Love the cover of a "Treaturous Curse".

  6. I have the illustrated Harry Potters and I haven't even really thought about reading them even though I really should...I just like to leaf through them a little every so often and feel satisfied that I have them on my shelf!

  7. I have been thinking a lot of my backlist--all my TBR books that have been on my shelves for--dare I say it?--years. I need to focus more on those, I know.

    I hope you enjoy Ancillary Justice. It took a moment for me to get into, but I really enjoyed it. And I can't say enough about how much I loved A Man Called Ove. I need to get to The Nightingale and Life After Life one of these days.

    I hope you are able to read all of these and that you enjoy them, Lindsay!
