I’ve really missed doing Friday Favorites, and since no one was currently hosting it, Cait @ Functionally Fictional decided to jump into the gap. Each week, she provides a prompt, and I get to talk about my favorite books that fit the topic. Feel free to join in – the more the merrier!
Winter is my favorite season, so is it any surprise that I love reading books set in winter? Here’s some of my favorites:
- The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi — set in winter, the characters have to visit the Ice Palace in Russia, and I wanted to visit this place so badly!
- The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden — this book is set in winter, in ancient Russia, and I could almost feel the snow.
- Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik — this book just made me feel chilly and want to sit under a blanket with a mug of hot tea, no matter what the weather was like outside.
- The Revolution of Marina M. by Janet Fitch — this one is a book set in Revolution-era Russia, and our protagonist has to deal with some pretty serious winter.
- Moon of the Crusted Snow by Waubgeshig Rice — this is a dystopian story set in the dead of winter, and I was HOOKED.
- The Hunger by Alma Katsu — can’t have a book about the Donner Party without snow, right?
What are some of your favorite winter-themed books?
