Winter Reads

Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with my Kindle e-reader (Note to self: charge your Kindle!). You can usually find me during the winter months with a hot cider (or glass of wine) and my Kindle on my lap. Since it’s raining in San Francisco and Marin County tonight, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite winter reads – and some that I’veย been wanting to read. If you want to amp up your book collection and spend more time reading, look to see if there’s a book club you could join. I just joined one a few months ago and have read way more than I ever have.

Here are my top picks:

* = haven’t read yet

1. Harry Potter Series


2.ย The Cuckoo’s Calling, Book 1 in the Cormoran Strike Series


3. The Girl on the Train


4. The All Souls Trilogy


5. All The Lights We Cannot See *


6. Ready Player One * (started but haven’t finished)

ready player one

7. The Rosie Project


8. Game of Thrones*


9. The Nightingale*


10. Everything I Never Told You*


Have you read any of these books? Do you have some suggestions for good winter reads? Let me know in the comments or follow me on Goodreads!

    You have big series to read with Harry Potter and A Song of Ice and Fire (once you read A Game of Thrones, you’ll keep reading…) but I’d like to suggest The Name of the Wind, a fantasy novel by Patrick Rothfuss, which I really enjoyed.

      I’ve read the Harry Potter series about eight times already! Haha… I am looking forward to A Game of Thrones series since I’ve watched the show and love it. Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll definitely add it to my Goodreads “to read” shelf. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Patrick Rothfuss is my all time favorite author! He currently only has the one series, which goes without saying means its my all time favorite!, but he also has a bunch of short stories out there. I also follow his blog, kind of obsessively. Warning before you get addicted though, he’s a slow writer, so if you start the series, realize that it is not finished yet.

        ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks for the Rothfuss support!

        I saw him recently live, on tour with Joel from Mystery Science Theater 3000, and the musicians Paul and Storm.

        He read aloud a story about a princess and a thing living under her bed, which was amazing.
