Top Ten Tuesdays, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, feature lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to find bloggers that love the books you do.
Check out their blog for their top ten and lists by other bloggers!
December 4: Cozy/Wintry Reads (Make this prompt suit your current season if needs be.)
Here’s my Top Ten Wintry Reads (New and Re-reads)
- The Winter of the Witch; Katherine Arden. I’m going to have to wait a month for this, but it’s perfect for this list.
2. If on A Winter’s Night a Traveler; Italo Calvino. It’s right there in the title. 😉
3. The Pushcart Prize XLII; Bill Henderson. Short stories are perfect to fit into a busy holiday season.
4. Ice Wolves; Amie Kaufman. Ice and magic! Perfect.
5. An Elderly Lady is up to No Good; Helene Tursten. Cozy always makes me think of mysteries. And what’s more cozy that a bit of murder? 😉
6. Devil in Winter; Lisa Kleypas. A cold setting is best while inside, cuddled up with a lapcat and a warm drink.
7. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened; Jenny Lawson. The holidays can be stressful, so a laugh is great.
8. The Stupidest Angel; Christopher Moore. A Christmas miracle gone wrong.
9. Hogfather; Terry Pratchett. A special sort of holiday story by one of my favorite authors.
