    Booking Through Thursday – Winter

    It’s the depth of winter here where I live right now … what books do you like to read when it’s snowy and white? What books do you read to evoke a real feeling of winter (good or bad)? BTT

    I don’t really read for the season. I do think I read much more in summer and spring. This partly due to a habit I grew up with when I went to school. Winter was exams and midterms and summer was free time. Even now, winter is more fraught with responsibilities, work and less for free time. I’m disappointed that I haven’t really had much time to read this month, and I doubt I can make more time.

    As for books that evoke winter, all my favourite young adult series use winter very well: Harry Potter (just reread last week), His Dark Materials (ditto), and Narnia (particularly TLWW).
