To see my updated Autumn 2019 list head over here.

You can listen to my Winter Reading List below or keep scrolling to read the post and grab the links to the books.

Before I dive into the list I want to share a new reading structure I have set up with myself to help me have a little more reading variety in my months.

Every month I am going to try and read 1 or 2 fiction books, 1 non-fiction book, and 1 memoir.

Feel free to try this out for yourself and let me know how it works for you.

My Winter Reading List

1. Harley Merlin 4, The First Ritual by Bella Forrest

I have actually already read this as I’m writing this post and I’m really enjoying this series, more than I thought I would.

There are some similarities to Harry Potter, but I don’t actually mind this. the more Harry Potter in my life the better!

I won’t’ say too much about this particular book so I don’t ruin the previous 3, but I recommend trying out this series if you like YA, fantasy and need a light read.

You can buy the book here*.

2. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

This book is from the Mortal Instruments Series and is book one. Another that I have already read, I am well and truly hooked on this series. It is so good!

It’s also YA/fantasy (my favourite kind of fiction) but a few steps up from Harley Merlin. It has some interesting themes going on and I am excited to see where the author is going with them.

3. You are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero

My non-fiction for January I am reading this book to help get me in a better money mindset for 2020 and pay off some debts!

This book is very actionable with many tasks to really get you thinking about how you think about money and how you were raised to think about money.

4. Know My Name by Chanel Miller

This book is my memoir choice for January and is a book that has come from the “me too” movement.

I am looking forward to reading more of Chanel’s words about what happened to her. Her victim statement moved me, made me cry and even laugh; that awkward laugh where you are like that must be a joke, and can’t possibly be true. But it is.

5. City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

The second book in the Mortal Instruments, I am so excited to jump back into this series and see how the story unfolds.

It’s going to be very hard not to dive into these books and forget about the rest of the world!

You can buy the book here*. But I did notice that it is much cheaper to buy the set of books which you can do so here*.

6. Harley Merlin 5, The Broken Spell by Bella Forrest

This is the half-way mark for this series and I am quite eager to see how it starts wrapping up, and hopefully learn more about Harley’s parents.

You can buy the book here*.

7. You are a Badass by Jen Sincero

As I am enjoying You are a Badass at Making Money, I would also like to read her other, non-specific badass books.

This one seems more general self-help and I like her style of writing in the money book so think this book will be just as good.

You can buy the book here*.

8. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb

This book is probably the one I’m most excited to read, and I’ve put it at the bottom of my list! (I do try and stick to the order I write my lists in if I can).

A therapist that goes to therapy, I’ve heard nothing but glowing reviews about this book and I think it sounds so interesting.
