Top 10 Books on My Winter TBR

12.10.2013

By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

Bears must hibernate in the winter. I’m not saying I’m a bear, but when it comes to winter, hibernation seems pretty appealing. There’s nothing more that I’d like to do in the winter than snuggle under the covers and well…sleep. But, of course, as a book lover, a wonderful treat in the winter is also snuggling up with a good book. That’s the thing though. I won’t know if a book is a good one, if I don’t open it up and read it, which is the best plan a bibliotaphe can have over the winter holidays.

While I must rush about in crowded malls picking up the last gifts on my long list of shopping; attend obligatory social gatherings in the name of political correctness,  a sign of interest, and pledge against severe introversion; cook and bake for parties I’d much rather eat at; and battle the snow squalls that are expected to hit the GTA this winter—I’d also like to pledge my commitment to reading more than a few, old, and new books.

Here are my top 10 hopefuls this winter:

1. The Orenda by Joseph Boyden
