What to read on a blustery, winter afternoon…

Hello from the Groundhog Day Storm/Winter Storm Kayla 2016 in central Wisconsin! I hope everyone affected by this storm, here and in other states, are staying inside their cozy homes, reading good books, and enjoying a warm beverage (hot cocoa is my favorite!).

Not sure what to read? Here are some of my favorite snowy day reads!

 

Let It Snow by Maureen Johnson, John Green, & Lauren Myracle

Summary: “In three intertwining short stories, several high school couples experience the trials and tribulations along with the joys of romance during a Christmas Eve snowstorm in a small town.”

 

 

 

My True Love Gave to Me by Holly Black, et al.

Summary: “If you love holiday stories, holiday movies, made-for-TV-holiday specials, holiday episodes of your favorite sitcoms and, especially, if you love holiday anthologies, you’re going to fall in love with My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories by twelve bestselling young adult writers, edited by the international bestselling Stephanie Perkins. Whether you enjoy celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah, Winter Solstice or New Years, there’s something here for everyone. So curl up by the fireplace and get cozy. You have twelve reasons this season tostay indoors and fall in love“– Provided by publisher.

 

 

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Summary: “In all the years she has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house, Grace has been particularly drawn to an unusual yellow-eyed wolf who, in his turn, has been watching her with increasing intensity.”

 

 

What the Dickens by Gregory Maguire

Summary: “When ten-year-old Dinah and her two siblings are trapped by a terrible storm, cousin Gage keeps up their spirits with an unlikely fantasy. A tale of a newly hatched, orphaned skibberee, or tooth fairy, called What-the-Dickens, who hopes to find a home among the skibberee tribe, if only he can stay out of trouble. Dinah is skeptical at first, but stories told by candlelight on stormy nights have a way of becoming real, and Dinah begins to believe.”

 

 

Cheers! And stay warm!
