The Winter Solstice is coming up, which means it’s time to embrace the snow! What are some books that you’ve enjoyed that feature winter?
I love winter! Even though I’m probably one of the few people who actually like this season, I actually enjoy cold weather and snow. Plus, is there anything more magical and beautiful than waking up to a view blanketed in snow, with crystals of ice covering the trees? So naturally, I also love reading books featuring winter. Here’s some amazing books from a variety of genres featuring winter:
- The Matzah Ball by Jean Meltzer
- Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
- The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi
- Five Total Strangers by Natalie D. Richards
- The Hunger by Alma Katsu
- The Nature of Witches by Rachel Griffin
- The Children’s Blizzard by Melanie Benjamin
- The Ancestor by Danielle Trussoni
- Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
- The Revolution of Marina M. by Janet Fitch
What are some of your favorite books featuring winter?

I also love Spinning Silver. Well, another favorite is A Christmas Carol.
Some of my favorite books might have a moment of Christmas, and not primarily set in Winter- but still love reading those scenes.

That makes sense, since Christmas is in winter, although I personally don’t read Christmas books.
I’ve only read Shiver, but several others are on my tbr! I’m hoping to finally read Five Total Stranger this winter. Great list!

Thanks! I actually didn’t love Five Total Strangers as much as I was hoping, but the winter vibe always suckers me into reading a book!
