Winter Reading

Snow, Snow, Snow! While the novelty of the area’s historic snow falls have been fun, one can only shovel (or play in) but so much snow. As an often snowbound reader this winter, I would like to recommend the following weather appropriate titles:

1) The Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck;
2) Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
3) Winter’s Tale by Mark Helprin
4) The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare
5) A Rose in Winter by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
6) Winter’s Bone by Daniel Woodrell
7) Winter in the Blood by James Welch and Louise Edrich
8) A Winter Haunting by Dan Simmons
9) Winter Moon by Dean Koontz
10) The Winter of Her Discontent by Kathryn Miller Haines

Pour a cup of hot cider, pull up a chair and snuggle in for a cold winter's night read!


  1. Great list; I love seasonal reads. I've been curious about the Hannah and Simmons titles.

  2. Sounds like an excellent Idea :D

  3. Wonderful post! Thanks for the list.
