Winter TBR: Southern Hemisphere Edition

It is winter this side of the hemisphere and the days are shorter and the sun takes forever to rise. While everyone is doing their spring/summer tbr lists I give you my winter reading list. For me winter is a great time to dedicate to a book series. Something about the gloomy weather, warm drinks and staying indoors encourages lengthy reading sessions. Until I find employment my days will be spent indoors reading books.


The fourth book in this series was recently released and a lot of people don’t seem to like it. There’s nothing like a good rant-review to put a book higher up on my TBR.

I read the first book in this series a few years ago and I loved it. This winter I’ll attempt to finish the series, starting with the first book.

I need to finish the last few chapters of this book out of basic necessity. I think what made me flake on this series so close to the end was that I tried to read the entire trilogy one after the other with nothing in between.

I first read this duology at the start of the year and was completely won over by Leigh Bardugo’s writing, her characters and the world they live in. I’ll be rereading it again this winter because I loved it so damn much.


I shelved this book in 2012 and 6 years later it’s still waiting to be read.

It’s one of those books that even if you haven’t read it, you know all about it. I know there’s an Andrew Minyard that everyone fawns over constantly. Perhaps this winter I’ll fawn over him too.

Noah Can’t Even was released last year and it’s the cutest, hilarious, most adorable book ever. It’s the kind of book that puts a smile on my face when I think about it. The sequel is being released on June the 7th and I hope I’ll be able to read it before the end of the year.


Hopefully I’ll finish the books on this list before winter ends. There are so many books that I’d like to add, books that were published earlier this year and books that I’ve been meaning to read for years but I’ll start here. I’ve been in a reading slump lately so maybe this list will keep me focused.

What season is it where you are? Are there any books that you connect to that season? Let me know in the comments.

  2. Wow ! wierd to see winter in this part of the year, logic of course but .. still odd, heheh.. We are in thoses going into summer; although it’s pretty cold still atm, eerh.

    I haven’t read anything on your tbr, but “noah could never” is appealing me ! the between of Autumn and winter fits perfectly to “In a dark dark wood” by ruth ware in my mind .. I really loved that atmosphere! Hopefully this list will help your slump, best of luck xx
