Books on My Winter TBR!

Winter is my favourite time of the year. I love sweaters, chai, pakoras (all the Desi food that taste more delicious during the Winter time) and curling up with a nice and cosy book on my bed with a comfy blanket and a cup of chai or sometimes when I stay in bed all day eating junk food and binge watching a tv show I just discovered. These two are my happy places.

But here’s the thing, I never follow my TBR lists because I’m a moody reader. I pick books up randomly because reading books on my actual TBR makes me feel like I’m doing homework like I’m forced to read a book. Hoeverver, these are the books that I have either been hoarding for the past few months or planning to buy soon to read during Winter.

Here are some of the glorious books on my winter TBR:

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One and Two (Harry Potter, #8)

I know I know. Everyone hates this book and blah blah blah but I wanna read it on my own and decide if I wanna hate it or not.. I’m pretty sure I’ll hate it but I already have a copy so I’m gonna give it a shot.

Whichwood (Furthermore #2) by Tahereh Mafi


  • First of all, THAT cover! It gives you all the snow and winter-y feels.
  • Second, this a Tahereh Mafi book and DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE HER???!
  • It’s a dark Persian fantasy about a girl who washes dead bodies.  

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay

I know I’m always late to the party but I’m a cheap person who has been waiting all this time for the price of this book to go down. And I finally bought it during the Black Friday Sale! I’m gonna read the screenplay and then watch the movie for the first time because as I was saying, it’s my hobby to always be late to the party. But, it’ gonna happen… definitely gonna happen… soon.

Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle

Let It Snow

I bought this one 3-4 years ago when I started reading again and John Green books were a BIG thing back then. spoiler: I only liked one of his books. I either hated them or abandoned all of them halfway through. Anyway, I started this one a couple of times but didn’t really enjoy it at that time. But, I’m gonna give it a try again and hopefully, this time I’ll actually be able to read it.

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #1)

I’m a big fan of Buzzfeed Unsolved (the only good thing Buzzfeed has now) so of course, I was drawn to this book! It’s Fantasy but set in the 1800s and I have heard so many good things about this that I can not wait to finally pick it up and read it!

One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

One of Us is Lying

Not gonna lie, I don’t know much about this book. I like to go into mystery and thrillers without knowing much because I like that air of suspense. Anyway, this book is really popular on Goodreads and most of my friends loved it so I’m really anticipating it. I hope I love it as much as everyone else!

I have like 10 (or 20.. whatever) more books on my TBR that I’m looking forward to reading during Winter. Buuuuuut these books are the ones I’m most excited about that’s why I’m only mentioning them!

What are some books you’re excited to read during Winter? Are you a moody reader like me? Have you read any of the books on my TBR? If yes, I’d love to know your thoughts!

  1. It wasn’t that The Cursed Child was bad but it just wasn’t….good. lol.I felt like it was a script of some sort of fan fiction. Like a lot of the stuff was just weird. It wasn’t even canon (I felt anyway). I think it might have done better had it been a novel. But regardless, I hope you find some enjoyment out of it.
    You’ll have to let me know about the screenplay of Fantastic Beasts. I’ve had so many opportunities to buy it and I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. lol.

      1. I read this really good fan fiction years ago that was based on the song Face Down by the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. It was about Draco saving Hermione from an abusive Ron. Quite good, I must say.
        I’ve def seen the movie of Fantastic Beasts. I really loved it! lol.


  2. I think a couple of the books you have there on your TBR list I have to add to my list too!!! “Stalking Jack the Ripper” looks super interesting!!!! I have Harry Potter and the Cursed Child too but never got a chance to open it up and actually read it!! I need to go through my list again and make a must-read list. I have to try and read at least 1 or 2 more books before the end of the year!

    1. Maybe we can buddy read Harry Potter together? The torture would be less if we endure it together lol 😀
      Ah me too! I just wanna relax and read a few books! I hope you have a good reading month 🙂


      1. HAHA It’s funny because a part of me wants to read it, a part of me doesn’t. It’s like a part of me doesn’t want to be disappointed because it’s not the same as the regular Harry Potter book and I love Harry Potter sooooo much!! Ugh the dilemma!!


  3. I’ve seen a lot about Witchwood and only good things. I really love Tahereh Mafi so I think this would be a great one to read this winter. Hope you reach your tbr goals and enjoy all of them! 🙂


  4. Oh my gosh, pakoras sound so good right now 🤤. I get how feel about John Green. I’ve tried starting his books on multiple occasions but haven’t been able to get through one. But, Let It Snow looks like a cute holiday story, so maybe I’ll give him another shot. Also, Buzzfeed Unsolved is awesome!! Sometimes I’ll randomly narrate things my friends are doing out loud in Ryan’s voice 😂.


  5. don’t listen to those who say that cursed child is a bad book….its actually a really good one👌. I’m positive that you’ll like it☺


  6. I too only liked one book of John green (no need to mention name) . others were just a waste of time and ‘let it snow’ is similarly a dull read 😐


  7. I’m a moody reader as well! I don’t have a proper TBR and even if I set one, I don’t stick to it. I’m actually heading One of Us is Lying right now and I’m not that into it? I actually abandoned it a few chapters in and went on to other books. Hopefully I’ll get back to it and it’ll keep me interested.
    Good luck on your TBR!
