TTT: Books on My Winter TBR

This week's TTT topic: Books on My Winter TBR

Shadowed Heart by Laura Florand (December) This is a rare thing-a sequel to a romance that is about the same couple as the original (The Chocolate Heart) and I absolutely can not wait. Florand is superb with character development and Luc and Summer are two of her more complex characters.

Party Lines by Emma Barry (January 12) This one is a CAMPAIGN romance. Democrat boy, Republican girl, opposite teams: this should be a whole lot of fun. And there will probably be amazing banter because its Emma Barry and there's that set-up.

Perfect Couple by Jennifer Echols (January 13) I read the first book in the Senior Superlatives earlier and LOVED it. It was my first Jennifer Echols experience and I have been making my way through her backlist. I'm most interested to see what she will do with this couple.

All the Answers by Kate Messner (January 27) I adore Messner's books and they are such easy sells to  MG readers I know. Also, I've already heard a ton of great things about this book.

Love, Lucy by April Lindner (January 27) I haven't read any of Lindner's other books, but this one is a retelling of A Room with a View so I have no power to resist it.

Beastkeeper by Cat Hellisen (February 3) Any regular reader of this blog knows I have a weak spot for fairy tale retellings and since Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairy tale....and this is gender swapped.

 I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios (February 3) I adored Demetrios' Something Real. She is an excellent writer of realistic fiction, and the letter she wrote that went with the ARCs to this is amazing.

Villain Keeper by Laurie McKay (February 3) There are so many books about kids who are transported to the real world from a magical land. I love that this is the reverse of that. And that it takes place in Asheville,NC!

Listen Slowly by Tanhha Lai (February 17) It's a new Tanhha Lai book. I don't need any other reasons.

Death Marked by Leah Cypess (March 3) I am wary about where this is going to take the story, but absolutely unable to resist its allure.

What are you looking forward to reading this winter?


  1. I didn't realize that Love, Lucy is a retelling of Room With A View. I just got an ARC of it but had never heard of it before.

    Beastkeeper seems absolutely magical. I hope you enjoy reading the books =)

    Here's my TTT

  2. You know what? I haven;t heard of any of these! But they sure sound awesome so my TBR as just got even longer!
    Cora @ Tea Party Princess

    1. That's the problem with these TTTs. I'm always adding to my TBR!

  3. I might have to check out Listen, Slowly. I absolutely loved Inside Out & Back Again!

    1. Oh me too. It's so beautiful. I've been able to teach it too and love the way kids respond to her writing.
