Weekly Geeks/Booking through thursday : Winter Reading

btt button

#Posting this for the BTT post of this week, which is on winter reading.

"The northern hemisphere, at least, is socked in by winter right now… So, on a cold, wintry day, when you want nothing more than to curl up with a good book on the couch … what kind of reading do you want to do?"

For this week's Weekly Geeks, share with us the books which call out to you during the cold, wintry months. Are there genres which appeal to you most? Why do you think you are drawn to these types of books during winter? Do you have some book recommendations for other readers who are looking for some escape from the blustery weather? Give us some of your favorites and tell us why you recommend them
.


I am one of those, who doesn't let the weather affect my reading habits. I read pretty much what I want. It can be anything, poetry, memoirs, fiction etc etc. However, this year we had severe winters, which is unusual for Delhi. Somehow I picked up a lot of romances and read those at a stretch. Maybe the warm feelings those romances aroused helped me combat the winter. I found myself hooked to those books. In January, I did not read much but what I read were romances or had underlying romances even if those came under suspense/thrillers too. What do I reccomend?

Do check out the following:



15 romances in two months? Thats a lot!

Well done hon..

Fantastic reading list... I am pleased to say I have read Hearts Blood - And for me it was fantastic...

I have earmarked a few from your list to try out... I am not a big historical fan, but who can resist Coulter...

Have a good week...

The new year always reminds me of the books I bought in the last year and haven't made the time to read yet. You can see my list here.

It's so interesting to see whether or not people's reading is impacted by the weather. Glad you enjoyed your romances.

I don't think the weather affects my reading either. I do read more children's books when school is in session though.

That is a lot of books! I'm interested in the Catherine Coulter books. I may have to check one out.

Happy Reading!

That is a lot of romance but great list and I love suspense mystery with a glimmer of romance.

I cannot remember the last time I read a romance novel...it might have been high school, and it would have been Danielle Steele. Does that count? I also don't tend to let the weather affect my habits, but I admit that my current "thing"--Victorian England--lends itself well to winter.

Great list! I don't read much romance, but I can see how reading it during the winter would be nice. My answer is at The Crowded Leaf.

Rachelle said...
