Top 5 Tuesday: Winter Reads

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah, the Bionic Book Worm!

So books that make great winter reads:

1. The Bear and the Nightingale & The Girl in the Tower (Katherine Arden)

Both of those books make great wintery reads. They are full of atmosphere and wintery spirits. They feel pretty cozy too in their strange magical way.

2. Portrait of a Murderer (Anne Meredith)

Meredith, Anne - Portrait of a Murderer

This story takes place around Christmas and I thought it was incredibly well done. A bunch of siblings visit their father for Christmas and one of them ends up murdering him.  You always know who committed the murder, but will the others figure it out? Full of unlikeable characters, but so well written!

3. The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern)

Morgenstern, Erin - The Night Circus

One of those magical stories that suits those cold dark days.

4. Winterdance (Gary Paulsen)

Paulson, Gary - Winterdance

A non-fiction recommendation! It does not get more wintery than dog sledding! Gary and his team of dogs take part in the Iditarod, a ridiculous long distance dog sledding race in Alaska. I intend to re-read this one this winter as part of my Winter Project.

5. Happiness (Aminatta Forna)

Forna, Aminatta - Happiness

This is just an amazing book for any time of year, but it’s a beautiful heart warming story to curl up with in winter. Highly recommended!


Apart from Winterdance you can find my reviews in my review section 🙂 Link me your Top 5 Tuesday!

  1. I have had “The Bear and the Nightingale” on my shelves for awhile. It was recommended by a fellow blogger. Your description of it makes it sound amazing. Maybe I should add it to my December TBR. Thanks!

    1. It seems to be a love or hate kind of book. I absolutely loved it, but I know some other people don’t get on with the writing. I hope you will love it!
