November 25:  Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR

Winter (in my hemisphere, at least, starts on Dec 21 and ends March 19. So these are books I will probably be reading in that period.)

(no cover.)

1. Cast in Honor; Michelle Sagara. Part of a fun fantasy series, with dragons and some seriously scary magical buildings.

as chimney sweepers

2. As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust; Alan Bradley. Flavia de Luce is a spectacular girl, and the last book had some interesting character development I can’t wait to see carried out.

dirty magic

3. Dirty Magic; Jaye Wells. This book has been out for a time, but I haven’t gotten around to it, despite it being on my list for a while. Christmas reading seems like a good time to change that.


4. Fairest; Marissa Meyer. While I’m waiting for Winter this story about Levana will tide me over.


5. Firefight; Brandon Sanderson. I can’t wait to read more about these evil superpowers.

foxglove summer

6. Foxglove Summer; Ben Aaronovitch. This one may be overly hopeful, considering how long it takes these books make it to the library, but it is supposed to be published in the US in January.

7. Hidden Legacy #2 (Untitled); Ilona Andrews. Because the first book was amazing, and anyone named “Mad” Rogan needs more page time.


8. Ravencliffe; Carol Goodman. Magical boarding schools are fun!

vision in silver

9. Vision in Silver; Anne Bishop. Blood prophets, a variety of frightening non-humans, and some stupidly agressive humans.


10. Willowgrove; Kathleen Peacock. The last book in a trilogy about a werewolf “rehabilitation” camp, and the werewolves trying to stay out of it.


About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

    The cover for Fairest looks kinda creepy…

    Just wondering, are these all YA books?

      She is the evil Queen, after all.

      I read a fair degree of YA, so some of them are. Fairest is, for example, and As Chimney Sweepers… As well as Firefight, Ravencliffe and Willowgrove.

      So, half! 🙂

    I read Rivers of London and enjoyed it but haven’t got around to reading any of the other Ben Aarovitch books! Really need to get around to it!

    I’ve read Dirty Magic and enjoyed it tbh. The Lunar Chronicles I still haven’t started – I will get round to it but I might just wait for the full series to be complete and then I don’t have any long waits between books.
    I need to catch up with Aaronovitch. Everybody seems to love this and I’ve only read the first.
    Lynn 😀
