Top Ten Tuesday — Winter TBR

27 Nov

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join.  If you can’t come up with ten, don’t worry about it—post as many as you can!

I’m cheating this week.  The real topic is “2013 New Releases I’m Looking Forward To,”  but here’s the thing: I don’t usually keep up with new releases. Sure, I grabbed them from time to time, but it’s usually because someone else recommends.  I don’t sit and wait for the new releases.  Instead of the real topic, I’m sharing my Winter TBR list.  The topic seems to have been left off the list for this season.  These books are all those that I need to read by the end of the year to knock out some reading challenges.
