Top Ten Tuesday - Winter TBR

 Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl which is all about lists.  Since lists are one of my favorite things this is one of my favorite linkups!  Today's topic is my Winter TBR.  I love making these lists.  I don't always read all the books that are on the list but I do enjoy making them!

1.  The Last Garden in England by Julia Kelly - This one was tempting me because of the absolutely gorgeous cover but when my friend Tina told me how much she was loving it I just couldn't resist anymore.  It might be my first book of the year.

2.  Mrs. Jeffries Demands Justice by Emily Brightwell -I love this historical mystery series with kind of an upstairs downstairs vibe and thoroughly entertaining characters.

3.  An Unexpected Peril by Deanna Raybourn - Another favorite series and one I absolutely can wait to read.  I love how Raybourn sets a scene and Veronica is such a fun character.  

4.  Cold Wind by Paige Shelton - I've read previous series by Shelton and enjoyed them but this one sounds a bit darker and more intense and I'm seriously intrigued.

5.  Chilled to the Cone by Ellie Alexander - Another new release in a favorite series!  I love seeing what Jules and the crew at Torte are up to even though I know I have to have a good stock of pastries on hand to snack my way through while reading!

6.  It Takes a Coven by Carol J Perry - I have been listening to this series and absolutely loving it.  I had read a few of the earlier books and really enjoyed it but the audio might be even better and I'm excited to get caught up.

7.  Brat Fararr by Josephine Tey - I have been exploring classic mysteries a bit more this year (or meaning too) and this one is up next on my list.

8.  The Tuesday Club Murders by Agatha Christie - I'm rereading the Miss Marple books and this is the next one - and it just happens to be one of my favorites!

9.  The Elusive Mrs. Pollifax by Dorothy Gilman - Another classic series that I'm reading my way through and one that has consistently been so much fun.  I can't wait to pick this one up!

10. The Shadow Sister by Lucinda Riley - This series has a high page count which tends to scare me off but I always enjoy it so I'm really looking forward to picking up the 3rd book in the series.

What is on your Winter TBR?


  1. The Last Garden in England looks good!! And I really want to read the Deanna Raybourn series.

  2. Thanks for the mention :-) I love the Last garden book and now I am looking for more by Julia Kelly! I just tagged you on Twitter about the Nigella Pudding Hunt. Fun stuff.

  3. I don't always follow my lists either, but, like you, I love making them.

  4. Hi Katherine! I'm done with all the Seven Sisters and are now just waiting for the last one to come out. I've enjoyed them all. I think you will love The Shadow Sister!!

    The Tuesday Club Murders are on my kindle, I actually haven't read it yet. Not this year, but I'll try next year!

    Glad you could join TTT again. I'll join again next week. I am busy sorting out my blog a bit and it takes forever....!

  5. Yes to a list you make but don't necessarily totally follow through on. I am up to date on the Lucinda Riley series - made the choice of listening - long hours but I got through them! Hmmm will note Carol J Perry, I can't get her books on Audible but maybe a read of them will be good.

  6. This is the second time my planned Connect 5 on Friday post matches the Top Ten Tuesday post. :-) These all sound like fun reads, Katherine. I don't always read the books on my list either, but I do enjoy making the lists. :-) I haven't read any of the books on your list. I hope you enjoy whichever ones you do read!

  7. The Brightwell series looks fun- I've looked at those before- and I want to try An Unexpected Peril. Her series look great to me as well.

  8. AN UNEXPECTED PERIL is on my list today as well. The Veronica Speedwell series is just so fun! I have an Ellie Alexander book on my list today too - the newest in her Sloan Krause series. Another fun series.

    Happy TTT!

  9. The Last Garden in England looks really good!

  10. I love the cover for The Last Garden in England, too. 📚✨

  11. I can't wait to get to An Unexpected Peril as well!!!

  12. My winter TBR is just the same lot of books as my normal TBR-too many!!!

  13. Numbers five, six, and ten are series I want to continue. I have learned that I need to read a couple of books of one so I can retain more what's been going on. I really liked the bake shop one but my library only has certain installments. I may start buying it.
