Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Winter 2020-2021 TBR

Hey everyone, it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday!

This week we’ll talk about books I’ve been wanting read recently (which, I guess is technically for the winter season 🤔). At this point, I keep forgetting that it’s almost the end of the year since, just like everyone else, my sense of time has been thrown off balance with COVID-19 and everything 😅

Anyways, Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl hosts Top Ten Tuesday’s every week, so go check out her blog (where you’ll also find more bloggers who participated in that weeks round of Top Ten Tuesday)!

So on that note, let’s go ahead and get into it!

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

…Yep I am picking up the Way of Kings again 😂 However, this time I am doing a buddy read, so at least I have someone to talk about it with/motivate me to keep reading! I’ve already gotten a few chapters further than where I was back in the summer, and my interest has been lost yet, which I consider a success!

Smash It by Francina Simone

I’ve been wanting to read Smash It since I got it, but I just haven’t gotten around to it yet, so I really want to read it sometime soon!

World of Wonders written by Aimee Nezhukumatathil; illustrated by Fumi Nakamura

This is Barnes and Noble’s Book of the Year for 2020, and since I work there, I’ve had to become more familiar with the book in order to talk about it with customers. It’s a collection of essays based on animals that relate to lessons she learned throughout her life. After reading the first essay, I wanted to read more of it, plus the illustrations are gorgeous!

The Mammoth Hunters by Jean M. Auel

I actually made it half way through the book before I stopped reading it… a few years ago 😅 Anyways, there is a readathon being hosted by Monika (@thelovelybookshelf) from December 28,2020-January 3, 2021 called “The Chunkster Readathon” where you read a book over 450 pages long. I originally was going to read The Way of Kings, but since I’ve already started it, I thought that starting over with The Mammoth Hunters and actually finishing it this time would be a great idea!

If you want more information on the Chunkster Readathon, check out the post below:

Also, just wanted to add that this is the third book in the Earth’s Children series!

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

I read Ninth House at the beginning of the year, but lately I’ve been in the mood to re-read this again. I don’t know why because I wouldn’t even say this is my favorite book I read this year. It isn’t high on my priority list, but I may read it again if I feel like it. 🤷‍♀️


On that note, that’s all folks!

For now at least, I think I’m going to focus on these five books. I know it’s a Top Ten Tuesday list, but depending on how much time (and energy!) I have, this might be all I can get through. What are some books you’ve been wanting to read this winter season? Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post, and don’t forget to check out That Artsy Reader Girl’s original post! Have a great rest of your day, and I will see you all in the next post!

    1. I remember really liking where the story was going! I wish I hadn’t stopped halfway through 😂 Thanks for stopping by, I’ll be sure to check out your post!

  1. I also need some motivation to read Way of Kings. I got like 100 pages in and put it down :/ I do want to finish it eventually though.
    Also Ninth House is one of the best books I read this year. I can completely see why you’d want to reread it 🙂

    1. Yeah, buddy reading with someone who has already read The Way of Kings is helping me a lot, I definitely recommend trying it out! Good luck 😊
      I also think part of the reason I want to read Ninth House again is that I was in the middle of a reading slump and generally wasn’t in the best place mentally, so I feel like I didn’t get as much out of it as I could have, especially as I love Leigh Bardugo’s writing. So hopefully I’m able to get around to it soon!

    1. I’ve gotten a farther into it, and I’ve really been enjoying the story more than when I tried reading it the first time!

      1. It definitely has been getting better! I’m about 170 pages in and just finished the first part, and I’m more into the story than when I tried reading it earlier this year 😂
