Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Winter 2022-2023 To-Read List

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Here are ten books scheduled to be released this winter that I’d like to read.

The Love Match by Priyanka Taslim

Publication Date: January 3

Why It Interests Me: It’s a retelling of Pride and Prejudice.


Organizing for the Rest of Us by Dana K. White

Publication Date: January 11

Why It Interests Me: I love the idea of having an organized house, but the actual process of figuring out how to organize things makes me feel anxious and overwhelmed. Maybe this book can help?


This Is Not a Personal Statement by Tracy Badua

Publication Date: January 17

Why It Interests Me: Dreams don’t always come true…or at least not in the way one thinks they will. My ears perked up when the blurb mentioned this begins after the main character’s application to attend her dream college was rejected. it will be interesting to see what adventures she has as she figures out what to do instead.


Someone Else’s Life by Lyn Liao Butler

Publication Date: January 17

Why It Interests Me: Stalking is such an interesting (albeit disturbing) topic. I hope this will be a good exploration of what encourages someone to behave that way.


Transitional: How to Live Your Authentic Life by Munroe Bergdorf

Publication Date: February 1

Why It Interests Me:  It’s interesting to read the perspectives of people who have experience gender dysphoria and who have transitioned. I’ve never really had to think about many of the topics they’ve needed to figure out, and I hope to learn all sorts of helpful stuff in this memoir.


Cold People by Tom Rob Smith

Publication Date: February 7

Why It Interests Me: Antarctica is a harsh environment. It would be extremely difficult for people to survive there longterm without regular replenishment of their supplies from the outside world, so I’m curious to see if these characters will figure out how to do it.


The Friendship Breakup by Annie Cathryn

Publication Date: February 7

Why It Interests Me: Losing a friendship can be just as painful as losing a romantic partner, and yet there are very few books that talk about what happens when friends are no longer part of each other’s lives. This looks like a great read.


Venco by Cherie Dimaline

Publication Date: February 7

Why It Interests Me: The thought of a magical spoon makes me giggle. Isn’t it marvellous when authors come up with creative stuff like this?


The Writing Retreat by Julia Bartz

Publication Date: February 21

Why It Interests Me: Some paranormal horror stories rely on honestly rather flimsy reasons for characters to want to remain in a home that turns out to be haunted, but I can see how the promise of a large cash prize and a a quiet place to write would be enticing for a lot of people!


My Dear Henry – a Jekyll & Hyde Remix by Kalyan Bayron

Publication Date: March 7

Why It Interests Me: I’ve never actually read the original Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story. Maybe this will convince me to give it a try so I can compare and contrast these books?


  1. This Is Not a Personal Statement and My Dear Henry are on my TBR list too. I hope we both love them!

  2. The Friendship Breakup sounds kind of sad.

  3. The Friendship Breakup looks really good. I hope you enjoy all of these books.

  4. The Friendship Breakup sounds intriguing. Hope you’ll enjoy all of these!

  5. The Love Match sounds fun!

  6. Ooh The Writing Retreat I want just for the cover. And the one about antarctica sounds suspenseful.

  7. What a cool mix of books….The one that immediately went on my list is VenCo – witches & magic, yes please. Thanks for the visit.

  8. I haven’t read the original Jekyll & Hyde either, but it has always fascinated me. My Dear Henry sounds great.

  9. Ooo, My Dear Henry looks good (I am waiting for this series to be picked up in the UK so I can afford them, haha)

  10. This is a great list! The remixed classics series has motivated me to read classics that I have never had any desire to read, and My Dear Henry is only the latest – I got an ARC of this one and can’t wait to read it! I hope you enjoy each of these when you get to them.

  11. The Love Match looks so good! I’ll definitely have to add that to my list! Here’s my list:

  12. I haven’t heard of any of these books, I also haven’t been very good at keeping track of upcoming books. The Love Match looks like something I’d enjoy, so I’ll be adding that to my TBR.

    • May you enjoy it!

      Honestly, I have trouble keeping track of new releases, too. Thank goodness that Goodreads has so many pages of them.

  13. Enjoy your reading. The organizing book looks fun, as do a couple of others

  14. The Friendship Break Up sounds really interesting

  15. Very intrigued by The Friendship Breakup. Definitely would like to see more books like this.

  16. Organizing for the Rest of us sounds good. I am an organizer and love it when my stuff is organized. We are still unpacking our house so any book that sounds helpful will appeal to me, LOL! I hope you enjoy all of these when you get a chance to read them.

  17. The Writing Retreat and Venco are a couple of my top anticipated reads for this coming year. I am really looking forward to them. I hope you enjoy all of these!

  18. I hope you enjoy these! The Writing Retreat is on my Winter list too.

  19. I hope all of these are great reads for you!

  20. The Love Match isn’t one I’m familiar with but that cover is really cute. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting my list this week, and happy winter TBR-ing. Hope you can read and enjoy these all.

  21. The Writing Retreat looks good. Great list and thanks for visiting my TTT!

  22. I read an ARC of The Writing Retreat and I loved it!

  23. A great mix. Enjoy!

  24. I hope you enjoy all of them!

  25. My house could do with some organization. Maybe I need that Dana White book, too! Happy reading, and thanks for stopping by my blog!

    • You’re welcome.

      I’m glad I’m not the only who isn’t the best at keeping a house organized. It’s clean but a bit cluttered.

      May that book help both of us. 🙂

  26. I’m intrigued by The Friendship Breakup and Someone Else’s Life. I hope you enjoy your winter reading!

  27. Interesting looking books. I love an Austen retelling.


    Have a great week!

  28. Wow, really awesome reads if I may say so. I hope you’ll enjoy them 😀 I kind of liked original Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

    • Thank you. I’m glad you liked Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I’ve enjoyed a lot of other classics but never got around to that one…yet? 🙂
