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!
