Ten Books on my Winter 2015 TBR

I'm  at the very end of my university degree so the next few wintery months are going to feature odd hours in and out of various offices, soaking up the winter sunshine on the windswept beach a lot it's not raining and curling up with hot chocolate and my cat when it is. Here are some of the books I'm planning to tackle during winter 2015:

Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu
I reread this deliciously enchanting middle grade Snow Queen retelling about every year, and 2015 will be no exception. Do yourself a favour and find yourself a copy. You'll thank me for the recommendation for the rest of your life, I promise.

An Echo in the Bone (Outlander #7) by Diana Gabaldon
The Outlander series has dominated my reading life since I discovered it in January. I'm almost there! The seventh mammoth novel is the second-to-last that's out... Who knows how many more there are to come?! Some huge things happened in the sixth book, which I finished this week, so I'm excited to get onto this one soon!

Masquerade by Kylie Fornasier
I started Masquerade months ago then put it down and I've been meaning to restart it ever since, because the few pages I've read were great!

Venom (Secrets of the Eternal Rose #1) by Fiona Paul
I know next to nothing about this historical romance, but look at how pretty that cover is! Sometimes I judge a book by its cover. This is one of those times.


Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King (The Guardians #1) by by William Joyce and Laura Geringer
This is the first of the illustrated middle grade fantasy stories upon which the lovely Dreamworks animation Rise of the Guardians was based. I don't know why I've been putting off reading this series since they'll only take a few hours to read each, but it seems like winter time is the right time to read about hardcore Santa Claus.

Shadows (The Rephaim #1) by Paula Weston
I care so little about angels, but I've only heard glowing reviews of this Aussie paranormal series so I went ahead and bought the ebook the other day. I am ready and willing to change my mind about angels.

Every Breath (Every series #1) by Ellie Marney
I bought this whole series a few weeks ago and still haven't opened them! This is another Australian series I've only heard amazing things about.


Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo
I have strong (mostly positive) opinions on Laura Buzo's new adult standalone Holier Than Thou, and Love and Other Perishable Items has been sitting on my ereader for over a year.

The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) by Maggie Stiefvater
I adored The Raven Boys so much when I read it, finally, earlier this year. I don't even know what's wrong with me, that I haven't caught up with the rest of the series. I don't own them, but I'm going to go reserve them from the library right this very second.

Crown of Midnight
(Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas
I know, I know, I'm years behind the times! I've finally started this series though, I need to continue before the release of Queen of Shadows!


What's on your TBR for this season? What are you favourite wintery reads?

  1. Breadcrumbs. Must buy immediately. Any book that deserves a reread each year is something I need on my shelves. I'm the same when it comes to Alice in Wonderland. Venom I LOVED! It's really luscious and opulent.
    Shadows I need to start this series too, waiting to grab the matching covers. I have books two and three already. Every Breath. READ. IT. I'll be the bestest life choice ever!
    Love and Other Perishable Items. I read this one when it was titled Good Oil. I loved it. Reminded me so much of my teen years with the awkwardness and first crushes. It's really lovely actually.

    Crown of Midnight. Get ready to put on your swoony pants! Actually, start with that one Soph, I really want to see what you think of it. I need to sort myself out a reading list too. Thanks for the brilliant idea and for sharing Soph so many awesome reads! <3

    1. Yessss I can't wait to see what you think of Breadcrumbs! It's just so so lovely. I adore everything about it. I'm pretty excited for all of these winter reads but okay, I'll start with Crown of Midnight and let you know!
