Booking Through Thursday: Winter

Here's this week's Book through Thursday, hosted by Deb. To see all the responses and to read the whole meme, click here.

What I want to know today is . . . what are the most “wintery” books you can think of? The ones that almost embody winter?

Each of the following books are bound to make you cold! Great wintry scenes.

Blizzard by Jim Murphy (nonfiction)
Iron Lake by William Kent Krueger (mystery, Minnesota)
Virgin of Small Plains by Nancy Pickard (mystery, Kansas)
In the Bleak Midwinter by Julia Spencer-Fleming (mystery, upstate New York)

Be sure to have your favorite hot drink with you before you start to read!

And, again, let me wish you Happy Holidays and a Book-Filled New Year.

I've had In the Bleak Midwinter on my TBR list for quite a while now. Maybe when the weather warms up a little, I'll give it a try - right now, I'm cold enough already! Have a great Christmas Day.

Great question. I don't know any of these books but that last title sounds intrigueing. My first BTT is posted.

It's gonna be Dostoevsky all the way: White Nights, The Heavenly Christmas Tree.

Merry Christmas. :)

Wow! Most original list I have seen. Must search these titles out for the fun of it. Merry Christmas!

Don't ask me why, but winter always makes me think of Dr. Zhivago.

Thanks for the recommendations, especially the Nancy Pickford novel. I've been looking for a book set in Kansas, and this sounds like a really interesting one.

Merry Christmas! :)

I always think of "The Long Winter" by Laura Ingalls Wilder when i think about winter books.
I even start getting hungry when i read it as if I was running out of food too! LOL
