Top Ten Tuesday: Holiday/Seasonal Freebie

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Click on the link for more info and to find out about future topics.

This weeks theme is:  Holiday/Seasonal Freebie

For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday Seasonal Freebie I’ve gone for a bit of variety with a selection of book covers.  Some of these are books with a festive theme, some simply have colours or themes that seem wintry. There’s at least one sequel amongst the list (Shiang, the first book is Darien, just in case you’re wondering), and at least one series beginning with The Bear and the Nightingale.  I’ve linked the covers to my reviews where possible in case anything catches your eye. On to the books…




So, have you read any of the books that made my list this week?  If so, what did you think of them? See you again next time for another Top Ten Tuesday.

    Great list! Spinning Silver and The Bear and the Nightingale both made my list this week, too. 🙂 The cover of The Christmas Lights makes me wish I was sitting on a snowy hilltop with a flask of hot chocolate, waiting for the northern lights.

    Fun list! I did something very similar today. I should really finally try out some Agatha Christie. Since I read mystery/thriller’s all the time. Do you have a favorite you would recommend most?

      One of the earliest Christie books I read was And Then There Were None, it’s a great murder mystery set on an island, and was quite eerie at times. If you’re interested in Poirot novels I really enjoyed Murder on the Orient Express and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was memorable too.

    The Bear and the Nightingale has such a striking cover! I will have to check it out 🙂

    The Toymakers sounds great as well; I love a good historical fantasy!

    Okay. Now I’m just going to have to go back and re-read some Agatha Christie books. I don’t think I remember so many holiday-ish reads from her!
