Winter Reading List




I am an avid reader all year long, but there is something special about curling up with a book on a cold winter day. Especially if the snow is falling, the fireplace is burning and a warm drink is within reach. It's all part of the coziness of the winter months and I plan on taking full advantage of any down time I have. My calendar for January is not full at all and after the business of the holiday season, reading time is my priority.

There are a few books in particular that I have been wanting to read, mostly based on recommendations and reviews from other blogs and Amazon. I really need a good book to choose as my pick for an upcoming book club and I am hoping that one of these will fit my criteria. A list of new books, from new to me authors, is so exciting and like a gift just waiting to be opened. You never know what surprises are inside.




"A psychological thriller being compared to Girl on the Train."



" A book written by a bookworm for other bookworms"


“In Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League, Jonathan Odell uses an unlikely friendship between two women--one white and one black--to explore the roots of the civil rights movement in the South. With its deftly drawn characters, delicious dialog, and deeply satisfying and hopeful ending, this fine novel deserves to win the hearts of readers everywhere."

Happy Reading!
