Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR

This week's theme: Top Ten Books on my Winter To Be Read List. I'll consider winter to be from December 2014 to February 2015 for this.
A loose sequel to Horowitz' 2011 House of Silk, Moriarty is apparently set after the death of Holmes and Moriarty, and follows a new character, a Pinkerton detective arrived in London fresh from America to investigate a criminal mastermind...
Stephen King. Enough said.... Seriously though, I have heard very good things about this book, which sees King take on the Frankenstein story.
Oh My God! Cannot wait for this book! I loved Nix's original trilogy set in the world of the Abhorsen, where the dead are controlled by the magic of bells, and cannot wait to get back into it again.
Weber and Zahn, two of the biggest hitters in military SF, working together in an earlier timeframe of Weber's Honorverse. The short story that kicked this off in one of the latest anthologies was great fun, so I have high hopes for A Call to Duty.
Mark Charan Newton's take on the historical mystery, set in a Roman Empire-ish fantasy world, had a strong start with Drakenfeld. Here's hoping Retribution will carry it even higher.
Hamilton is a fantastic epic space opera author and The Abyss Beyond Dreams returns to his seminal Void universe to start off a brand new duology.
One of the débuts I am the most excited to get a look at, translated from Chinese and apparently by one of China's most beloved sci-fi authors. With so much hype building up about this one, here's hoping it will live up to it!
The writer of the Malazan Book of the Fallen tries his hand at a Star Trek pastiche. I loved Scalzi's Red Shirts, so I hope this will be as good.
Following on from what for me was the fantasy debut of 2014, The Providence of Fire continues the Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne, picking up the story of the three children of the Annurian Emperor as they return to the capital, and promising more action, magic and giant birds!
I was so gutted when Myke Cole's Shadow Ops series apprently came to an end this year with Breach Zone, so you can imagine how excited I am to read Gemini Cell, a continuation of the world without being a sequel to what is a very contained and nicely wrapped up initial trilogy.
There you have it. Ten books on my TBR list for this winter. What about you?

    1. Thanks! Have you read any of Garth Nix's other work? If not, they are well worthy picking up.

  2. Looks like some wonderful books. I am just about to begin the Honor Harrington series. Also our SF Book Group is contemplating reading the The Three-Body Problem so I will look forward to your review.

    1. Oh man, you're in for a treat. I LOVE the Honor Harrington series, devoured them a while back. Hope you enjoy the Three-Body Problem.
      Thanks for the comment.
