Last Week on Inked Brownies

My Winter TBR-List

It’s almost the 21st of December, meaning I should’ve almost completed my Autumn TBR-list. Well, I’m still 2.5 books behind and, for the next season, learned to:

  1. Set it to a smaller amount of books. I chose 7 books for my Autumn list, which should be totally doable within 3 months, yet I chose a couple of really thick books, which made the progress go slow as balls.
  2. Go for a more versatile selection. I thought I’d done a nice job in combining different formats/genres, but it turned out 6 out of 7 books were about dragons (some more than others, but still). Nothing wrong with dragons, but then I should’ve just called it my Dragon TBR-list.
  3. Keep it realistic.

So here are the books of which you can expect to find reviews  here before the 21st of March, 2016 (eep!):

1. Snowflakes and Coffee Cakes by Joanne DeMaio




I saw this cover a couple of years ago and was like, damn, I need this book for Christmas! For some reason, I was unable to get it in my country, but huzzah, I’ve got it on my Kindle now! (can’t admire the cover this way, but oh well)



2.Dragons of Winter Night(Dragonlance: Chronicles #2)by Weis and Hickman





I know, dragons again! But I’m on a roll now when it comes to reading this first trilogy in the Dragonlance series during the right seasons!




3. A book by Charles Dickens. I have a vast collection of Dickens books on my bookshelves and like to pick one to read every winter. I usually go by whatever compels me the most right then and there, so I can’t give you a title yet. All I can say is that I’ve already read Christmas Books, Oliver Twist, David Copperfield and Bleak House(I believe I read Great Expectations as well, but I’m not 100% sure).

4. The Subtle Knife (His Dark Materials #2) by Philip Pullman

I read the first part in the trilogy last year and loved it. It ended with a big cliffhanger, so tun tun tuuuuuuun!






5. Pursue Friendship (Frank Friendship #2) by R.G. Manse




A little bird told me part 2 of the Frank Friendship series takes place during this time of the year, so w00t, a good reason for me to read more delicious awkwardness!






Now here comes the part where I would like to add more, but shouldn’t for the sake of my cortisol levels during the upcoming three months.

Books I still have to read/finish from my autumn list are:

The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss




I’m at roughly 15% now and it’s GREAT! Just…ARC’s. I think I’m developing a request addiction. Anyhow, I’m 98% sure I won’t be able to finish this one before the 21st of December, so it’s going on the Winter TBR as well.





A Hero’s Guide to Deadly Dragons (How to Train Your Dragon #6)by Cressida Cowell





I should be able to finish this one in time, but if not, it’s also going on the Winter list.





The Cursed Towers (The Witches of Eileanan #3)by Kate Forsyth





I will definitely not be able to finish this one and because it’s quite a thick book, I won’t add it to my Winter list. Not officially at least.







Back to the ARC addiction! You can expect reviews of these ones in the upcoming months for sure:

Daughter of Sand and Stone by Libbie Hawker

I wished for this on Netgalley and actually got my wish granted, so damn rights that this is on top of my list at the moment.






Girl of Myth and Legend (The Chosen Saga #1)by Giselle Simlett












A Fantasy Medley 3 (The Iron Druid Chronicles 0.3)- A short story collection





This one doesn’t have the greatest rating on Goodreads, so I’m rather curious to check it out for myself.

4 Comments on My Winter TBR-List

  1. Pretty awesome list- look forward to reading the reviews, Dragongirl! 🙂

    The Wise Man’s Fear- I really like the cover and the title gives me a feeling this is something I should read… “wise” and “fear” are keywords to interesting stuff!


  2. BACK THROUGH THE MOUNTAINS OF ROARING FIRE, WHOOOOSH! I somehow doubt putting on a dragon costume will look very appealing, though 😀

    It’s pretty awesome if you’re into slow paced fantasy and lutes :). (that might sound sarcastic, but it really isn’t!)


  3. Snowflakes and Coffee Cakes sounds so cute! I think I also snagged Daughter of Sand and Stone.

    • I know right! 😀 I think most of her other titles have the same cozy sound to it. Her latest book is called Snow Deer and Cocoa Cheer. high fives!
