1.) The Harry Potter series (J.K. Rowling): Some of the most beautiful winter scenes are in the movie versions of these books. Hogwarts is my dream place to be during the cold months. It’s so festive and wonderful with all the snow and the holiday decorations!
2.) Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier: There’s something so fitting about gothic settings when reading during the wintertime. And this is one of my all-time favorite novels in general.
3.) And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie: What is more perfect to curl up with on a cold winter’s day than a cozy “who-done-it” mystery?
4.) The Raven Cycle series (Maggie Stiefvater) : Honestly, because this my favorite series and any chance I have to recommend it, I will.
5.) The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley: Oh my, I can’t say enough about Susanna Kearsley’s novels, but out of the many I have read so far, this is definitely my favorite. If you want to get transported straight to historical Scotland, this is the novel for you!
6.) Heartless by Marissa Meyer: Because this was release not too long ago, just in time for the end of fall/beginning of winter, and this is definitely near the top of my current TBR pile.
7.) Snow Child: Eowyn Ivey: This has been sitting on my kindle forever, but it’s set in Alaska and the couple builds a child out of snow. Sounds perfect!
8.) Violets of March by Sarah Jio: or any Sarah Jio book (this one just happens to be my favorite!) She write the kind of books that you start and find it impossible to put them down until the last page. Perfect for when the days get shorter!
9.) The Boleyn Trilogy by Laura Anderson: Like mystery novels, there is something so cozy about Tudor fiction. This is a wonderful series that I adore and I think it’s so underrated in the book community!
10.) The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons: I mean, just look at that cover. Another one of my all-time top favorites. This story begins in summer, but spans into the Russian winter and beyond. If you’re looking for an epic love story to melt your heart this winter, pick this one up!
