Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Normally today was reserved to talk about wintery reads, but honestly? I don’t have any particular wintery reads. In winter I often do like to re-read old favorites, but I didn’t feel like that warranted a post. Now, what I do love to do in winter more than any other season, is binge-watch short and addictive tv series.
You know, the kind of show that doesn’t have too many episodes, but just enough to get you hooked and looking forward to watching a new episode (or two, three) every evening with a cozy blanket and a hot chocolate. Here are some of my favorites!
Yuri On Ice
I first watched this anime during winter 2 years ago and now it’s a rewatch must every winter. It’s the cutest little anime about Yuri, a professional figure skater with self-confidence issues. He’s about to give up figure skating when a video of him skating his idol’s routine inspires that same idol to become Yuri’s coach. It’s funny, cute, romantic and will have you wanting to go ice skating yourself.
The Good Place
The Good Place is about a woman who finds out there is a Good Place and a Bad Place after death. Luckily she ended up in the Good Place. Except… they made a mistake and she really shouldn’t be there. Hilarious shenanigans ensue. This is a super funny series with only 3 short seasons, so perfect for your winter binge-watching!
Trust me, you need the amazing Sherlock-Watson bromance in your life. Though the episodes are rather long, each season only has 3-4 episodes so you could easily binge this!
This Chinese drama is available on Netflix and I highly suggest you to give it a try if you’re looking for some seriously addictive romantic drama. Though there are quite a few episodes, this series about a girl getting into her dream college and befriending the 4 most popular and rich boys at school, is so addictive you’ll fly through in no time!
The End of the Fxxxing World
If you like your humor with a lot of darkness in it, The End of the Fxxxing World is your thing! In this, two teens go on a roadtrip together, except one of them thinks they’re a psychopath and is planning to kill the other. It is addictive, funny and the eight 25-minute episodes are over before you know it.
While You Were Sleeping
I always suggest Kdramas if you’re looking for a short, highly addictive, binge-worthy story and While You Were Sleeping was one of my favorites of the year. And look at those visuals, perfect for winter right? In this story, a woman who dreams about the future meets a man with the same weird dreams and they end up working together.
Queer Eye is more than just a make-over show. It’s so good and pure, it’ll make over your soul.
But seriously, this show is soo good and made me so happy just watching it.
Good Morning Call
How about some Jdrama this winter? I have watched both seasons of Good Morning Call during winter, so it’s linked in my mind. It’s fluffy, adorable goodness about a girl who accidentally becomes roommates with the most popular guy in school.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Who says Halloween can’t last throughout the winter? I loved this dark Sabrina retelling and highly recommend it if you want the spooky Halloween atmosphere to last just a little longer.
Big Little Lies
Just look at that cast! I mean, this mini-series is already based on an amazing book, but with that cast you have a masterpiece. A murder mystery set around kindergarten mums will definitely keep you hooked thoughout the winter months!
