Top Ten Tuesday: Winter TBR

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1. Warcross by Marie Lu - This is one of my most anticipated reads this fall and I'm dying to pick it up. My next read will either be this book of Renegades, so I'm ready for it!

2. Renegades by Marissa Meyer - This is the other most anticipated book of the fall and like I said above, I'm going to be reading it very soon!

3. A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab - I listened to the first book in this trilogy and really enjoyed it, so I thought I'd keep with tradition and listen to this one in the next couple of weeks.

4a. Hawkeye Vol. 5: All-New Hawkeye by Jeff Lemire
4b. Hawkeye Vol. 6: Hawkeyes by Jeff Lemire
5. Hawkeye: Kate Bishop Vol. 1: Anchor Points by Kelly Thompson
After binge-reading the Matt Fraction run of Hawkeye this fall, I decided it's time to pick these beloved characters back up. I'm hoping to read these back to back near the end of the year, so I don't have to wait too long for Kate Bishop's vol. 2.

6a. The Fade Out: Act One by Ed Brubaker
6b. The Fade Out: Act Two by Ed Brubaker
6c. The Fade Out: Act Three by Ed Brubaker
I've been waiting for a good time to read this story in three acts. It finally feels like the right time to do it. This winter I'll get a little bit of the noir vibe in my life.

7. This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab - I've been meaning to read this book since I got it, more than a year ago. I'd like to get to it this winter, but there are just so many books out there.

8a. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
8b. The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
It's time to read this series. I only have the first two on the list because it seems more realistic that I'll get through a couple of them, rather than all four. But who knows maybe I'll just marathon them all!

9a. The Assassin's Blade by Sarah. J. Maas
9b. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
I started this series at the beginning of the year with the intent that I'd read at least three of the books. Now it's almost December and I've yet to read more. These books are on here in an effort to read more before I forget what happened in the first book. Hopefully, I'll enjoy them as much as I did Throne of Glass.

10. Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill - I loved the first Lauren Morrill book I read and since then I decided I wanted to read all of her books. I own this one and haven't read it yet, so now is the time to pick it up!

Notable Quotable: Stephanie Garber (#174)

"Hope is a powerful thing. Some say it's a different breed of magic altogether. Elusive, difficult to hold on to. But not much is needed."

Notable Quotable: Kat Spears (#173)

"There was no reason for me to think everything was about to change. That's the way life happens, why you have to be able to see all the angles every time you make a choice. What's true today might not be true tomorrow."

Notable Quotable: Brian K. Vaughan (#172)

"The world is a terrifying place, more than I ever realized. But if I had my whole life to do over again, that's literally the only thing I'd change. I'd stop being so afraid of other people."
     --Paper Girls, Vol. 2

Notable Quotable: Lauren Oliver (#171)

"And I guess that's when it starts to hit me: the whole point is, you do what you can."

Harry Potter Moment of the Week #114

hosted by Uncorked Thoughts and Lunar Rainbows Reviews.

What store would be your first stop in Diagon Alley when picking up your supplies for your first year in Hogwarts?

Without question it would be Ollivanders. I would get up early to be first in line to get my wand! All the other shops are pretty exciting and I definitely would love Flourish and Blotts, but the wand is where it's at! Plus, I want to meet Ollivander himself!
