I don’t know about you, but I’m something of a seasonal mood reader. Meaning, with every change of season I tend to feel a pull to read a certain type of book. It’s not always the same mood each time winter comes around, though. Some years I crave books in hot locations to feel the warmth. Some winters all I want to read is Harry Potter. Sometimes it’s more genre based. But this year, curling up with a book that takes place in a cold or wintry environment is particularly appealing. There’s just something about getting cozy with a blanket and a coffee while the chill is both outside and in my book that sounds just right this season.
Although each of these books features a chilly atmosphere, they couldn’t be more different. This list contains a variety of genres, from historical fiction to contemporary and gothic mystery to Nordic noir. So hopefully there’s something for you in the mix!

Ah, fall. When I was younger, I loved the end of summer only because it meant school was starting soon again. Yes, I was that kid. But the change of season that brought cooler temperatures, changing leaves, and back to school clothes and supplies was a fun and exciting change after the lazy days of summer.
This time of year, I typically like to read books that have a certain atmosphere. It might be through a setting that has cool and crisp fall weather, a tone that is slightly eerie, or just a nostalgic mood that reminds me of when I was younger. If any of that sounds like the kind of book you’re looking for this season, you’ve come to the right place!
As usual, most of the books I’ve picked have been previously published to make it easy for readers to find a copy. But I did have to include one newer option that I think is absolutely perfect for this season!

I don’t know about you, but I get excited for summer reading every year! Even when I was younger, I used to bring my school’s summer reading list to Barnes and Noble and proceed to stack them all together instead of picking the two or three that were required.
Summer reading means something different for every reader, though. In the following five selections there are a variety of styles and genres to choose from. Most have been previously published so if you’re a library lover it should be easy to get your hands on them!
