TTT: Winter TBR
TTT is one of the memes I do…sometimes. As much as I like it, it can be time consuming to think about 10 of something and then actually put the post together. I never miss the season TBR posts, though.
Dead Queens Club by Hannah Capin
A modernized version of Henry VIII and his six wives. This is one of my most anticipated of the year.
Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen McManus
I started reading this a few weeks back but ended up putting it aside. Not because of I wasn’t enjoying it, but more because of who I am as a person. This is about a brother and sister who end up at their grandma’s after their mother goes to rehab. The girl ends up getting mixed up with the brother of the boy accused of killing a girl. It sounds convoluted, but it is pretty good so far.
Slayer by Kiersten White
A girl who attends an academy to become a watch of slayers finds out that she is, herself, the last slayer ever. I have to admit that I never got into the show, but I did love the movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer fiercely and have seen it a billion times. I’m cautiously optimistic for this one.
Death Prefers Blondes by Caleb Roehrig
A teenage socialite spends her days in front of paparazzi and nights doing cat burglaries.
An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanan
Although I still need to read these author’s collaboration, I am excited for what is one of the most anticipated thrillers of the year. I started it this week but haven’t gotten very far yet. I like psychological fiction that really delves into characters, and I’ll never say no to dual perspectives.
Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte
I so rarely ever enjoy (or get through) YA fantasies, but I cannot resist their covers.
The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley
A group of friends get snowed in a hunting lodge. Murder and mayhem ensue.
The Black Coats by Colleen Oakes
A secret group have been exacting revenge on the men who hurt girls and women for years, and the protag of the novel has just been invited to join them.
Best Babysitters Ever by Caroline Cala
This MG novel about a girl who read the Babysitters Club and decides to do the same…only to find out babysitting isn’t all it’s cracked up to be looks fun and nostalgic.
Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
A “Behind the Music” look at a popular band of the 60s.
Lovely War by Julie Berry
Aphrodite tells the story of two people who fall in love in the perilous days of the two world wars.
You Owe Me a Murder by Eileen Cook
This is a YA retelling of Strangers on a Train. A girl meets and talks to a stranger on a plane during a class trip. They “jokingly” talk about taking out someone for each other and then the protag’s ex-boyfriend ends up dead–leaving her to hold up her end of the bargain.
So these are the books topping my Winter TBR. Did any of them make your list? Hit me up!
