9 Wintry Books to Read This Season

It may not officially be winter yet, but let’s be real—we’re feelin’ it already. I don’t know about where you live, but here in Ohio, we don’t really have normal seasons anymore. Spring and Fall have been reduced to like, maybe two weeks before coming to an end. Fall did not last long—we’ve already had snow here, and the temperatures never rise above 35 anymore.

But that’s okay. Winter means hot baths, hot coca, and evenings dedicated to curling up in a blanket with a book. And I’ve got some of my favorite books that will help keep you feeling those wintry vibes. There’s a genre for everybody, here. Click the titles to see the book on Goodreads!
