How Did I Do With My Winter TBR?


Yesterday I posted my Top Ten Tuesday about the books I hope to read this spring. After seeing a post over on Jesticulates’ blog, I remembered that I did a similar TTT for my Winter TBR. So let’s take a look and see how I did with the books I had hoped to read over the colder and darker months!

The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates: It was the author’s first fiction novel and was magnificent. Lyrical and mesmerizing, I really fell for this story.

Recursion by Blake Crouch: Another complete mindf&*k from the impressive imagination of Blake Crouch. It was fascinating, but it really did a number on my head.

Wilder Girls by Rory Power: It was all right. It didn’t really go anywhere, but I was interested enough to not be mad about reading it. Some people were upset with the ending but I found it to be satisfactory.

Miss Iceland by Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir: A charming ARC that I’ll be posting a full review for in May. Keep an eye out!

The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood: THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING. Everything about it was divine. Read my review here!

The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver: I started it but had so many ARC’s I needed to read that it got put on the back burner.

A Warning by Anonymous: A pretty grim take on the Trump administration. It didn’t reveal anything new, but the book laid the insanity of this presidency out in a cohesive and downright frightening way.

The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester: This has now rolled over into my Spring TBR!

A Beginning at the End by Mike Chen: Probably not the best book to be reading right now if you have virus fears, but it was definitely a compelling story of returning to a semi-normal life after a pandemic. Read my review here.

Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein: Perpetually at the top of my TBR, this book is still languishing there. I will read it soon, I promise!big-blue-divider-hi

It looks like I managed seven out of ten which I don’t think is too shabby at all. Hopefully I will have similar success with my Spring TBR!

Have you read any of these? How have your TBR lists been going? Let me know in the comments!

    1. I’ve never actually followed up on my posted TBR’s so it’s good to see that at least in this instance I read quite a few. And how awesome was The Unspoken Name?!


  1. I’m always so impressed by how some people can even remotely stick to a TBR. You did really great :))) I’m the type of person that just would stubbornly refuse to read a book if I’d told myself I was gonna read it during a given time period oops! 😬 🙊😂

    1. Honestly, I almost rarely ever do. Every year I set up a themed mini-TBR challenge for myself and I’ve never even come close to achieving it. Last year I had a list of 12 classic sci-fi books I’ve always meant to read and I think I made it through about 5.
