Top Ten Books on my TBR List for Winter

It's nice to have some books to save up for the cold winter months.  Time to grab a blanket, a nice hot cup of tea and a good book :D

Poison Study by Maria V Snyder - This has been sat on my tbr for a while now.  I have finished the Opal Cowan series - which I really enjoyed - so I need to move on to this series.  I've been saving this one up.

The Sookie Stackhouse Companion by Charlaine Harris - This looks such a cool book, jam packed full of information and stories all related to the series.  This book will be read in snippets, I'm going to savour this one :)

The Golden Compass  by Phillip Pullman - The cover has a polar bear on it.  It looks like a winter scene, therefore it would be ideal as a winter read.  I did see the film a long time ago, I've left it long enough now to read the book.  I don't know about you, but I much prefer to read the book first before I see the film.

The Island by Victoria Hislop- set in Greece, this conjures a picture of a warm sun filled Greek setting.  Perfect for getting away from the cold wintery weather.

Sepulchre by Kate Mosse- This was my Read it Swap It book challenge for this year.  I've had a whole year to read it but I haven't...... ooops.  I still have a few weeks to go.  Maybe I can squeeze it in and read it before the end of the year.  Mind you it is a thick book, so wish me luck!!

The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde - I need a book by this author to bring me out of my winter blues.  His books are brilliant and I haven't read this series yet.  One to savour in the cold months.

Around The World in 80 Days by Michael Palin - I can travel the world with Michael Palin and not leave the comfort of my armchair.  His books are full of travel information and his superb personality.  

Ill Wind by Rachel Caine -  Book one in the Weather Warden series.  I tend to be aware of the weather a bit more in winter.  So the Weather Warden series seems quite a good series to read.

The Winter Ghosts - This is another book by Kate Mosse.  But seeing as though this book has a wintery name and cover, then I will add this to my list.  It's been on my tbr for a while now, I must get it read soon and moved onto my read pile.

Wolfsbane & Mistletoe by Charlaine Harris et al - This is a festive anthology with different authors including Charlaine Harris.  I think this is about the only book I have on my TBR pile with a festive theme.  I bought this book when I was on holiday in the US, so it's a very special keeper copy.

What books do you have on your TBR pile for Winter???

I would love to read The Golden Compass. I love the narnia books.

I still need to read Poison Study. I have an ARC of it- that's how long it's been sitting on my shelf...

You know, I didn't think about the idea of reading something perky during winter....that's a smart idea. Not sure if my reads are very uplifting....
