Top 10 Books on my Winter TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
Every once in a while I participate in this one when I either
1) Like the theme, and/or 2) Have the time!

This week's topic:
Top Ten Books on my Winter TBR!

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is one of my FAVORITES. Every season, I LOVE picking out the top books I'm excited to read coming up!!!!

I can't wait to see what you guys are excited to read for in case I overlooked it, so make sure to share your links this week, okay!?

In order of publication
(Featuring releases from December 21st until March 21st, the official winter season!)...

1) BEFORE I LET GO by Marieke Nijkamp
Out January 2, 2018

I adored Marieke Nijkamp's debut novel THIS IS WHERE IT ENDS and have been looking for a new book from her. I was lucky enough to see her and tell her to her face how much I loved her book at this year's BEA. I'm so excited for this release!

2) LULLABY by L.R.W. Lee
Out January 15, 2018

I recently discovered this book because I loved the cover. And then I found out that Charlie Bowater (who has designed a lot of stunning artwork for the ACOTAR series, including the dress on the cover of the third book!) created this cover. AND the book is about the Sand Maiden, who is the Sand Man's counterpart. And it sounds AWESOME!

3) MARKSWOMAN by Rati Mehrota
Out January 23, 2018

I love a good fantasy with fierce females! This sounds really good. And look at the tagline: "The fate of the world hangs on the edge of her blade." Mandy is actually reading an early copy right now!

4) SIGHTWITCH by Susan Dennard
Out January 23, 2018

I love Susan Dennard's Truthwitch series, and am intrigued by the special formatting of this companion book! It's going to look BEAUTIFUL! I can't wait to see!!

5) REIGN THE EARTH by A.C. Gaughen
Out January 30, 2018

Elemental magic and A.C. Gaughen? Together in I've book??? SOLD!

Out February 6, 2018

Numair FINALLY has his own book. Do you know how many years I've been waiting for this!?

7) THE BELLES by Dhonielle Clayton
Out February 6, 2018

Ahhh, everyone has been saying the most amazing things about this one! Mandy has already read and loved it; I've been trying to be good and not read any of my 2018 ARCs until January because reading them early always messes up my BEST of The Year list if they're not really out! I've had this one since June, but the temptation is great!

8) SHADOWSONG by S. Jae-Jones
Out February 6, 2018

WINTERSONG, S.Jae-Jones debut novel, is heavily influenced by both Labyrinth and The Goblin Market. It ends cleanly, but I'm excited to see where this road takes us next!

Out March 6, 2018

There was a huge bidding war over this debut fantasy, so there has been buzz for a long time! I received a sampler at BEA and just got an ARC. it's huuuge and I can't wait to dive in!

10) TO KILL A KINGDOM by Alexandra Christo
Out March 6, 2018

I freaked out a little when I got this one in the mail this month! You know how much I love mermaids and sirens, right!? This sounds so kick-ass. I want to read it now!!!

What books are you most excited to read???
