Missing Winter Reading List

Sure, we had a blizzard last week, but today it hit 60 degrees and, as a winter lover, I can't deal with that. When I was watching The Revenant (go Leo!) in the theatre I started to feel cold just from watching Leo's character deal with the cold on screen. So I started thinking, what better way to pretend like it's proper winter again than to read some books that will give me the same chilly feeling. So grab your scarves, and let's dig in!

OF SCARS AND STARDUST by Andrea Hannah. This was a sensational book about Claire, who heads home when her younger sister goes missing and she battles demons, both real and fake, to try to figure out what happened to her. The book takes place in the cold of Ohio and a lot of the plot occurs in the snowy fields in the town. 

SNOW LIKE ASHES by Sara Raasch. As a true winter lover, this book was filled with perfect imagery and lines about snow and the cold. Great adventure and love triangle, too. Bonus!

LIFE AS WE KNEW IT by Susan Beth Pfeffer. To be honest, this one might be a bit too cold, but I enjoyed the story so much that I just advise you to make some tea, grab a blanket scarf, and read read read! In this one, an asteroid knocks the moon closer to earth, which messes up everything and ends up (among many other things) causing a very long and intense winter.

SHIVER by Maggie Stiefvater. Soo much of the plot in this book relies on the temperature and, since it takes place in the very cold midwest, there are a lot of cold days. I love how Stiefvater included the temperatures at the beginning of each chapter. 

GAME OF THRONES by George R. R. Martin. Winter is coming! 

All right, get reading and let's bring winter back!
