Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week the theme is my Winter TBR.

I have not done a TTT in a while. But after I found out that I have already three books on my current TBR that actually HAVE a book title that is a complete sentence, I thought why not do this one. Some of them I´ve already read, some of them are still on my TBR.

Thus, begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world. But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore, and he remembers her name.

A Court Of Mist And Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Feyre survived Amarantha´s clutches to return to the Spring Court – but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can´t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin´s people. Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms – and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future – and the future of a world cleaved in two.

The Heirloom Garden by Viola Shipman

Iris Maynard lost her husband in World War II, her daughter to loneliness, and, finally, her reason to live. Walled off from the world for decades behind a towering fence surrounding her home and gardens, Iris has built a new family … of flowers. Iris propagates her own daylilies and roses while tending to an heirloom, garden filled with stars – and memories of her own mother, grandmother, husband, and daughter. When Abby Peterson moves to Grand Haven, Michigan, with her family – a husband traumatized during his service in the Iraq War and a young daughter searching for stability – they find themselves next door to Iris and are slowly drawn into their reclusive neighbor´s life where, united by loss and a love of flowers, Iris and Abby slowly unearth their secrets.

Seventeen-year-old Ray is the biggest reality TV star in the world - without knowing it. When she doesn't behave the way the show's creators want it, a young actor is smuggled into her supposed reality to make her fall in love. The plan is working. Maybe a little too good.

Till There Was You by Marie Force

Lucas Abbott and his identical twin grew up sharing everything - including a reputation for funny, idiotic behavior. But now that Lucas is ready to shed that lovable-idiot image, grow up and have a real, adult relationship, the joke’s on him. He and his twin have fallen for the same woman. Crushed and hoping a few days on the slopes will work out his frustrations, he heads for Stowe, Vermont. All thought of fun and relaxation flies away as a car spins out in a snowstorm, and his firefighter/paramedic training kicks into high gear. Danielle Rowson is hoping to pick up the pieces and build a new life for herself and her daughter in Vermont. Winding up in a ditch in the middle of a blizzard isn’t part of the plan - and neither is the kind, sexy rescuer whose strong hands pull them to safety. Lucas has been a little kid, a big kid, and now an adult - and he discovers that adulting has more than one advantage. Especially when it comes to sharing with Dani and Savannah the one thing that’s his and his alone: his love.

A Very Large Expanse Of Sea by Tahereh Mafi

It´s 2002, a year after 9/11. It´s an extremely turbulent time politically, but especially so for someone like Shirin, a sixteen-year-old Muslim girl who´s tired of being stereotyped. Shirin is never surprised by how horrible people can be. She´s tired of the rude stares, the degrading comments – even the physical violence – she endures as a result of her race, her religion, and the hijab she wears every day. So, she´s build up protective walls and refuses to let anyone close enough to hurt her. Instead, she drowns her frustrations in music and spends her afternoons break-dancing with her brother. But then she meets Ocean James. He´s the first person in forever who really seems to want to get to know Shirin. It terrifies her – they seem to come from two irreconcilable worlds – and Shirin has had her guard up for so long that she´s not sure she´ll ever be able to let it down.

The Priory Of The Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

A queen. A dragon rider. A magician. They can only cope with the ancient enemy if they work together. Should Queen Sabran of Inys die childless, the dragons will return. Because their family is the only obstacle that holds back the beasts. But assassins are getting closer and closer to her. Fortunately for her, her maid, Ead, is actually a mage from the Order of the Secret Tree who protects her.
