Top Ten Books
on my 2019 Winter TBR

TTT for December 17, 2019


TBRs are a great source of both treasures and anxiety for book bloggers. I constantly purge and organize, and lament as it keeps growing anyway. I bet many of you reading this post feel the same way. So, what are my top ten books on my Winter TBR?

2020 releases

   Dreamland Perfect Little Children Second Sister

I got Dreamland directly from the publisher,
because I’m a big fan of Nancy Bilyeau
and her historical novels
as you can see in my review of The Blue

I got Perfect Little Children.
I do enjoy mysteries by Sophie Hannah,
with her new official Hercule Poirot stories

and Second Sister
through Edelweiss Plus,
as I enjoy books in translation – here from the Chinese
