Which books are you looking forward to getting your hands on this winter?

Tanya – I’m checking books off the challenges that I’m participating in and since the January 2017 Monthly Motif Challenge is to read diversely, I’m choosing to read The Ballad of Black Tom, Victor LaValle.

Charles Thomas Tester hustles to put food on the table, keep the roof over his father’s head, from Harlem to Flushing Meadows to Red Hook, NY. He knows what magic a suit can cast, the invisibility a guitar case can provide, and the curse written on his skin that attracts the eye of wealthy white folks and their cops. But when he delivers an occult tome to a reclusive sorceress in the heart of Queens, Tom opens a door to a deeper realm of magic, and earns the attention of things best left sleeping.

Diverse Wicked Good Reads

I have an Advanced Copy of The Bone Witch, Rin Chupeco that I’m looking forward to reading too.

When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother from the dead, she learns she is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy means that she’s a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and ostracized by her community.


Kim – I have been giving a lot of thought about what I want to read in the next couple of months. Here’s what’s at the top of my list…

Dark Matter, Blake Crouch

This has been in my Audible library for awhile now and I’m hearing some good things about it. For whatever reason, I always like to start the new year with a thriller of some sort. This fits the bill.

The Bone Season, Samantha Shannon

I heard this is going to be a seven book series so I decided to get reading before I feel too far behind.

Throne of the Crescent Moon, Saladin Ahmed

I’m reading this for the January Monthly Motif Challenge. Saladin Ahmed is an Arab American whose short stories have been nominated for the Nebula and Campbell awards.


So … what’s one book you absolutely must read this winter?

  1. […] Books On Our Winter Reading List and 7 Books From The “Best of Lists” That We Missed and Unfinished Series That Need […]

  2. I have the audiobook version of Dark Matter and I’m hoping to get to it sometime in 2017. We’ll see…

  3. Dark Matter seems to be everywhere! Even though it doesn’t sound like my kind of book, I’m starting to have second thoughts.

  4. I am not a sci-fi fan, but I have been seeing Dark Matter pop up at Twitter a good bit! Hope you enjoy it!!!

  5. I read Dark Matter and liked it. Blake Crouch obviously isn’t Dickens 🙂 but I found his style to be engaging and I couldn’t put this down. As a matter of fact, this book caused me to grab his trilogy The Pines & my husband and I read through all three books rapidly.

    Winter reading – I have a list and hope to link up with your Motiff Challenge. DCI Banks mysteries by peter Robinson and Stir by Jessica Fechtor.

  6. ENJOY…I don’t read sci-fi, though.

    I read historical fiction, women’s fiction, and mystery. 🙂

    Have a great day…..you wrote another awesome post.

  7. I’m not into sci-fi at all so have been avoiding Dark Matter, but some people I trust who also aren’t into sci-fi have said it’s fantastic, so I’m now giving it the side-eye. Will be interested to hear what you think.
