Top Ten Tuesday: My Winter 2021/2022 TBR

Hello, everyone and welcome to another seasonal TBR through Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Like I always do, I start by looking back on my Fall TBR to see if I actually managed to read all the books, and for the first time in a long while, I haven’t. I missed There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool, and to be honest, I kind of forgot about it until I checked that post a week ago. It’s the third time that has happened with that exact book so I’m thinking it must be cursed. Because of that, I won’t include it in my official winter TBR, but I still want to read it this winter.

It was really hard for me to pick the books for this TBR. Most of these books are going to be read in 2022, and it was like my brain insisted I couldn’t possibly plan that far ahead as if 2022 doesn’t start in a few weeks. But anyway, here they are!


I’ll be honest and I say I’m not feeling too confident about this TBR, but a lot of them are rather short so it should be doable. Something like Sistersong is also dependent upon my parents getting it for me for Christmas, and if they don’t, I’ll probably switch it out with a third Robin Hobb book. But what do you plan on reading this winter? Any of these books you’ve already read?

  1. I’m very excited about these plans of yours, obviously, since about half of this list consists of books I’ve already read and loved (or, in the case of Unwind, liked and then started appreciating more once I’d also read the sequels 😂) and the other half of books I really want to try! 😊
    Sistersong is also on my Christmas wishlist, but I’m not really sure if I’m even going to get books, since I’ve also “subtly” hinted to my parents that I would like an e-reader at some point, to cut down on the bookshelf overflow problem without constantly having to read stuff on my phone 😄 And I’m also looking forward to your opinions on Spinning Silver! I really enjoyed Uprooted back when I read it, but it was also one of those books that I forgot about immediately after I put it down and never reread. So somehow, Spinning Silver was never a priority… But a good fairytale retelling might actually be perfect for winter! 🥰

    1. An e-reader can definitely help with the bookshelf overflow problem so I hope you get one! Buying ebooks is so much easier than buying the physical ones (which is also kind of dangerous 😅). I’m also not at all sure I’m going to get Sistersong because my parents will do whatever they can to avoid buying me books but my wishlist this year literally only consists of two books, so I’m slightly optimistic 😂

      And I’ve seen Spinning Silver compared to Winternight too many times to not give it a go. I’ve no idea what it’s about other than it’s a retelling and the cover gives me winter vibes 😄 I haven’t read Uprooted but I do know it’s one I’m going to try if I love Spinning Silver.

    1. Thank you! 😊 I only read the first book in the Outlander series before I gave up and just watched the show, but I do know that those books are massive so good luck! I hope you end up really liking it.

    1. I’ve been enjoying the series so far and given ratings between 3 and 4 with book two as my favorite. I really like the characters but it is a bit too rushed at times for my taste. I’m really excited to see how it ends!

  2. What an exciting list! Spinning Silver is just exquisite: the romances are marvelous, the prose is lovely, and it’s rare that fantasy a standalone manages to feel so vast. Also––super wintery and snow-filled! Perfect for December! I hope you have a wonderful time with it. (I’m diving into yet another Rumpelstiltskin retelling, Gilded by Marissa Meyer!) Happy reading 💕
