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
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!
