Booking Through Thursday - Winter

btt button
It's Thursday, all my essays have been given in, more or less the way they're supposed to be, and now I have to revise for my Vikings' exam. But first: Booking Through Thursday, hosted by Deb over at BTT

It’s the depth of winter here where I live right now … what books do you like to read when it’s snowy and white? What books do you read to evoke a real feeling of winter (good or bad)?

Oh, there are so many books I love reading, all snuggled up under my blanket. I don't really have a special set of winter books, I don't even have a particular set of winter clothes! But here is a set of books I love reading when all huddled up and warm:
  • 'Wuthering Heights' - Emily Bronte. I will always read this book, no matter where I am. But there's something about being all warm and cozy and to then read about these cold heaths and these terrible characters.
  • 'The Lord of the Rings' - J.R.R Tolkien. My copy has all three books in one so it's a massive volume. I love just curling up around it and reading it to myself. 
  • 'Die Unendliche Geschichte' - Michael Ende. One of my childhood books and I just absolutely love it. It's beautiful. And it is just fun to have a nostalgic afternoon with a childhood read!
There are loads more because I love picking up the occasional romance novel and just read it through in one sitting, or lying rather. 
How about you? What do you like to read in winter?

On a side note, I just bought some posters for my room and I feel like I should share what is now the craziness of my wall. I will be very happy with Fili, Kili and Thorin on my wall!

  4. I love surrounding myself with posters, pictures, etc. My bedroom is filled with photos of Ireland, shot by my photographer son; and my office has family photos, bulletin boards with snapshots, and a crazy potpourri of STUFF. Thanks for visiting my blog. Enjoy your winter reading!

  6. I do enjoy reading winter books in winter, especially holiday themed books. OTOH, sometimes I will read a beach read as an escape.

  7. The LOTR is one of my favourites, but I don't think there is a particular time of year that I prefer reading it. It is due another read soon, though. Maybe that's what I need to do whilst it is so cold here. Thanks for visiting my BTT earlier and happy (warm) reading!
