#AMonthofFaves – Winter Reading

A Month of Faves is hosted by GirlxoxoTraveling with T and Estella’s Revenge

Mon. | Dec 17 – #AMonthofFaves Winter Reading – Your fave reads from last Winter, and /or seasonal reads you love, and 5 books on this year’s winter reading list.

Other than reading some horror novels in the run-up to Halloween, I’m not really much of a seasonal reader. Some days in summer I might opt for a book set in winter, just to take my mind off the heat, but that’s probably the opposite of what seasonal reading means, right?

So instead of seasonal reads, how about some of my favorite reads from last winter!

Cork Dork by Bianca Bosker

What a fun journey full of wine

The Book of Dust Vol One La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman

It’s Pullman!

My Favorite Thing is Monsters Vol 1 by Emil Ferris

Beautiful and breathtaking illustrations!

What’s on this year’s winter reading list?

Well, here’s the thing, the end of the year is when major publications churn out their “Best Books” lists and I am obsessed with these lists. I love them. I love poring over them. And I love finding out that I have read like 5 out of 100. And then I love making plans to read them – which never really happen because I’m too easily distracted by other books. But I do HOPE to read some of these books which are on the Kirkus Review, NYT, and Tournament of Books lists.

Asymmetry by Lisa Halliday. I love that cover.

The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea. I loved Urrea’s previous works: Into the Beautiful North, and The Devil’s Highway. And for some reason kept mistaking this title as The House of Broken Angles and really that was what intrigued me.


How Long ’til Black Future Month? by NK Jemisin

Because it’s by Jemisin!

Washington Black – Esi Edugyan


  1. I just added Cork Dork to my list. And I’m so annoyed because my husband read Washington Black and returned it right as it was announced as this year’s Giller prize and now there are 81 holds on it. I’ll get to read it — eventually!

  2. Yep! I’m here for it. I want to read so many of these books on your list. Although, I hate to admit I get a tad overwhelmed by the “best of” lists.
