Top 10: Great Wintery Reads

Between Shades of Gray - Ruta Sepetys A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens Jane Eyre - Charlotte Brontë Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone  - J.K. Rowling Warm Bodies: A Novel Reprint Edition by Marion, Isaac published by Atria/Emily Bestler Books (2011) - Isaac Marion A Walk to Remember - Nicholas Sparks Daughter of the Forest - Juliet Marillier The Shining - Stephen King Little Women - Louisa May Alcott Dash & Lily's Book of Dares -  'David Levithan', 'Rachel Cohn'

These are books that I think are great to read in the winter, whether they are holiday related, gothic, more serious in tone, dark, scary... etc.

 

1. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

[Good time for a historical fiction, and most of this is set in the wintertime!]

 

2. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

[One of my favorites book and my favorite Christmas story, going to reread it this year]

 

3. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

[Perfect time to read both a romance and a gothic novel]

 

4. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

[Christmas time at Hogwarts is so magical - best time to read or reread this amazing series :)

 

5. Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

[Great time to read "monster" books - vampires, werewolves, ghosts, and yes ZOMBIES!]

 

6. A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

[A Nicholas Sparks book is perfect for every time of the year, this one especially since it teaches you the true meaning of Christmas and more!]

 

7. Daughter of the Forest by Juliette Marillier

[Reading a great fantasy is also perfect for the winter, this is one of my absolute favorite series! (sevenwaters series)]

 

8. The Shining by Stephen King

[Great time of the year to read a horror novel, part of this is set in the winter too]

 

9. Little Women by Louise May Alcott

[It's also nice to read a classic book and this one just makes you feel warm and cozy inside, but sad too]

 

10. Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

[If you are looking for a fun christmas YA romance read, this is a good one!]
