Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week she asks us to share lists on the following:
December 4: Cozy/Wintry Reads
This week I’m going to select books I’ve not read but have been holding off for a cold winter night.
Ten books that I held for winter.
- Often I will hold a really long book for the dead of winter. I did so with the Game of Thrones series and it seemed to work out. I have been meaning to try this one and it is a brick so maybe it would be good winter read.
- Another brick that also happens to be high fantasy. Hmmm, maybe it is less about long stories but I get in the mood for fantasy adventures when the temps drop.
- Starting a new series is another thing I will do in the middle of winter. I recently brought home almost this entire series maybe I will make this my January read.
- Or finishing a series that I already started. I read the first books in the Old Man’s War series a couple of winters ago before I burnt out on it a bit. I could pick this back up and finish it this winter, or maybe not.
- Last winter I started reread a couple of series that I love and if I wanted to go that route then I have been meaning to reread this one for a while now.
- I keep meaning to set aside a month and read nothing but Star Trek books. Maybe midwinter would be a great time to get my Trek on.
- Then again a nice travel book that shows me of places I’d rather be than hip deep in snow. Like Vulcan ;).
- A funny trilogy also might be fun!
- I’ve also been to catch up on some of my favorite series by my favorite authors. I keep falling behind in Kenyon’s series maybe winter would be a great time to catch up.
- Wasn’t sure what else to select for the list so I thought it might be fun to add another trilogy to the list. I have all of these books sitting on my shelf waiting for their turn.
What types of books do you like to read in the dead of winter?
