Oh, winter is a time for reading! (So she says while she isn’t currently reading a thing.) Hey, I’m editing. That’s a valid excuse. 🙂
But you don’t have that excuse. So here are seven awesome books you should totally be reading this winter.
BITTER WINTER (Jaye L Knight)
I haven’t read it yet, but it just came out, and seriously, that cover.
But it’s book five, so if you haven’t read the series, start with book one.
LACY (Jaye L Knight)
Now, while we’re on the subject of Ilyon Chronicles, this one I have read, and I LOVED LOVED LOVED it! It’s pretty short and perfect for a winter day read.
BEYOND THE BRIGHT SEA (Lauren Wolk)
This precious book is middle-grade and perfect for any reader. Seriously. This story is so beautiful! And so is that cover . . .
The friend who recommended this book has also read it at least twice.
UNBROKEN (Young Adult Version) (Laura Hillenbrand)
I haven’t talked much about this book since reading it, and I should have. This is a true story, and it’s the most powerful, inspiring story I have ever read, ever. Read it when you have time to sit down and not get up for a good long while.
DARE (Tricia Mingerink)
What can I say? There’s snow on the cover. But aesthetics aside, it’s an awesome story that begins a terrific series. You won’t be able to stop at book one.
WINTER HAVEN (Athol Dickson)
This book. This. Book. Twists, turns, suspense, and a totally logic explanation at the end that you never saw coming . . . My kind of book. Prepare to be swept away.
And last but far from least . . .
Fawkes. What can I say? It was amazing. PERFECT for a winter read because you can just settle in and not move for a while.
Okay, today we’ve got to chat in the comments. What are your favorite winter reads? Have you read any of the books on this list? What’s your favorite kind of book to read when you’re cold- or snow-bound? (Or does that analogy not apply to your part of the world?) 🙂 Readers, let’s chat!
