Top Ten Tuesday: My Winter TBR

Disclaimer: Yes, I know it's Wednesday but just as I was preparing myself to publish this last night... I fell asleep. I know, it's a terrible excuse but it happens. I'm sorry.

November 25:  Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR 

  1. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy - This is the December - January pick for the I Like Big Books book club on Goodreads. It's a great group, if you like big books join us and read along!
  2. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe  by C. S. Lewis - This book just feels wintry to me. My first-grader loved the movie, so I think this might be the year we read this one together.
  3. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens - This one seems obvious, but I've never actually read it. This might be the year for it.
  4. Winter's Tale by Mark Halpern - This has been sitting on my shelf unread since last winter, I think it's about time it gets read, plus it has winter in the title so BOOM. Done.
  5. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens - I'm doing a read-along with Alysia of exlibris, she is totally awesome and you should check out her Booktube channel. This is my first Dickens and I'm both excited and nervous about it. I really want to like this one.

A Tale of Two Cities Anna Karenina Winter's Tale The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (Chronicles of Narnia, #1) 
A Christmas CarolThat's it for my TBR because three of my picks are so long. Here's what we'll be reading in our fort:
Once Upon a Northern Night by Jean E. Pendziwol
The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsberg
The Call of the Wild by Jack London
White Fang by Jack London


  1. Ooh, Anna Karenina! I've had a copy of it on my shelf for some six years now and haven't yet read it. Other books just pop up before I can grab that one, but I'm betting it's amazing!
    Good luck with your list :)

    1. Thank you! I've had the same problem with setting aside books I've owned for a while so I could read newer books. I'm grateful to book clubs for getting me to read books I usually already own.

  2. I just read A Christmas Carol! It's one of my favorites. Hope you like it. :) And A Tale of Twi Cities is excellent. :)

    1. Sorry for the delay in responding, it's been such a busy holiday season! I've been having a really hard time getting into Dickens, sadly. I am planning on reading A Christmas Carol, I think I'll save it for next Christmas :)
