TTT- Top 10 Books I Want With Me When I Get Snowed In!

This top 10 weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and can be found HERE.  Each week they focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading. This week is a freebie, meaning you can chose your own topic, and since I am doing this ahead of time, and in my neck of the woods we are anticipating Winter Storm Jonas, I thought this topic would be very appropriate.

Mr. Mercedes
Since I haven't started this series yet, and I think it would make a great winter read.  Could have easily substituted The Shining because I LOVE that book and it takes place in winter, but I've read it 3 times and thought I should add something new.

I really need to get this one read so I am ready for the next one, even though I have heard horrible things about where this series is headed.

Dying for a Cupcake
I love cozy mysteries when the snow is falling and the wind is howling.

Harley Quinn
In a snowstorm, I would definitely need this so I could satisfy my "ornery" side.  I adore Harley Quinn and want to see what trouble she finds next.  I personally think she is a villain with a heart of gold...or at least part of her heart.

The Small Act of Kindness
I love Lucy Dillon and almost always read one of her books each winter.  This is her newest.

I'd have to have a dog book and I bought this one when it was released so a snowstorm might be a good time to pick it up.

Looking for Mr. Good Witch
 Another cozy mystery where I loved the first one.

What the Dog Ate
This is the only book by Jackie I haven't read and since I don't know when her new one is coming, I have been holding off on this one.  This would be a wonderful Kindle read if the snow knocks out the electricity - provided I have it charged!

The Killing Jar
Gotta have a dark read or two.  I think this one would do the job!

Winter, snow, howling winds, limbs cracking - all that's missing is the haunted house and I think I found it!

Hope Winter Storm Jonas didn't leave everyone looking like this.  So what made your Top Ten Tuesday this week!


  1. Yikes I hope you are surviving the snow! One thing I'm okay to miss the being snowed in part but the books you chose sounds like fun.

  2. With all the books I have plus warm blankets, self heating meals, sleeping bags, battery operated candles and a tbr of 589, I think I'm ready for winter storms! The one we're having is rain and wind, nothing bad. Hope things are ok on your end.

  3. I hate snow! I hope that you are doing okay being snowed in. I do enjoy staying home with a big stack of books to keep me company. I love your choices!

  4. Those sounds like some good books. :) But I hope I don't need a snowed in list. :)

  5. The Haunting of Blackwood House sounds awesome and is goig on my tbr list right now! :)

  6. YAY! Great choice of topic this week. I always love freebie week as people always do such amazing topics! I would love to get snowed in for a few days just to be able to read some great reads. Good luck with the storm, hope it doesn't hit you too bad.

    Here's my TTT post if you want to check it out. I picked non-book romances I would love to see get book adaptations.

  7. we got 16 inches of snow and then today it was 46! (PA).Definitely would have Mr. King book, always engrossing!!

  8. Oh, thanks for including me on the list! That last pic is too cute! But hope Booker T isn't looking like that when he goes out! Stay warm!

  9. Some lovely looking books on here - the Haunting of Blackwood House definitely appeals to me.
