Top Ten Tuesday

Feeling those winter-vibes coming your way yet? Or maybe it’s summer drawing nearer and nearer? Whatever the season, there are always those reads that give us all the fluffy feels and that’s exactly what I’ll be sharing today!

I’m not just going with fluffy, though. I’m going with books that actually speak to me right now. Some I’ve read, others I haven’t yet but feel like I should sometime soon. Set TBR be damned and all.

TTT general

Today’s topic is “Cozy / Wintry Reads” and that’s.. pretty much what you’re getting this time? Cozy, at least. Fluffy. Contemporary. Not necessarily wintry.

All covers link back to Goodreads if you feel like checking them out!

Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle, #1)The Upside of UnrequitedGirl Hearts GirlA Song of Ice and Fire, Leather-Cloth Boxed Set (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1-5)

I just.. wanted to start with one that somehow does give me wintry feels anyway. Nevernight. I’m pretty sure the black and white cover does it though, because apart from that it seems more like a fall / autumn read? The Upside of Unrequited is a fluffy read – or so I’ve heard! Multiple people told me it’s uplifting and cute and.. well.. that sounds plenty of cozy to me. Girl Hearts Girl sounds like that as well, so.. yup! These three are actually on my December TBR so let’s hope I actually read them.
As for the A Song of Ice and Fire-box.. If someone says winter-books, I can’t help but think “Winter is coming!” so.. I feel like these belong in this post anyway. I wanted to reread them this year, but.. fail. I do love those leather editions though. They feel so soft and small and.. like I’ll be ripping the pages without meaning to.

180 SecondsSimon vs. the Homo Sapiens AgendaFangirlMerry Inkmas

These first three are three of my favorite books. I actually reread 180 Seconds and Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda this year – which is saying a lot since I rarely reread anything! All three these books gave me all the feels, which.. sounds perfect for this season? Even though it’s definitely not about the wintry vibes with these, at all. The fourth book is one I only read last week and couldn’t help but fall in love with. There are some steamy scenes, sure, but the diversity in Merry Inkmas really was the cherry on top for me. I definitely need to check out more of Talia Hibbert’s writing!

Are there any books on your TBR you kept purposely for the next season?
[Whether it be winter or summer.]
What’s your favorite winter read? Or your favorite winter genre to read?

Feel free to leave a link to your TTT so I can check it out!

  1. I love dark & gritty stuff for winter. Scandinavian thrillers fit really well for me 😀
    I have Fangirl, haven’t read it yet, but for me it feels like a late summer/early Autumn book. I could be wrong tho…

    1. I think, should I be in the mood for darker books, I might actually find myself in a thriller hole as well? But so far my mood has been all cozy and romance with some fantasy thrown in, haha.
      Fangirl is definitely more of a Summer / Autumn book, but the coziness of it is also perfect for me in Winter. Personal preferences and all that. 😀

    1. Hahaha oh lord. Four times?! I admit there are some POV’s that are dreadful to get through though. I’ve struggled with some of them in the past myself, when I read them in Dutch. [But I should just keep in mind that there’s a 80% chance those characters will get killed off eventually?]

    1. haha, it made me mad at myself for not having read Carry On yet, to be honest!
      Right?! The only thing I’m struggling with is.. the hope that they’ll do a small leather-bound edition like these when the sequel finally releases? :/


  2. I don’t generally save books for any particular season (although I did read Fawkes right before Guy Fawke’s Day). Okay, maybe except the obvious ones that are specifically written for Christmas or summer. This week’s post make me want to read some books this winter though, like the Grisha Verse trilogy and Wintersong.

    I loved Fangirl!

    1. Oh, is Fawked any good? I’m totally in love with the cover but just.. don’t know about buying it yes or no, haha.
      Is the Grisha-trilogy an obvious Winter-book? I might have to keep my fingers crossed I haven’t packed them up yet. I really want to read those soon.. ish..

      Same! I’m hoping to read Carry On next year!


  3. I discovered 180 seconds because of you. I saw it on your past posts though I haven’t read it yet. 🙂 But it’s on my TBR. All these books are familiar to me except merry Inkmas and what you said about it made me want to read it. Hopefully I do this Christmas.
