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)

New Reads

  1. 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? 😉

Re-Reads

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.
