This is the best time of the year to read. The weather is changing, we’re not used to the cold and we just want to find something to do inside. I’ve found myself done with everything about 8:30p.m. lately and felt stuck. Is it too early to go to bed? Is it too late to start a Netflix movie? My cure has been grabbing my iPad and finding a good novel. Apparently my favorite authors agree, because they all seem to have books coming out this season! Here are my suggestions for your reading and the best books for winter 2017.
As always, if you aren’t, follow me on Goodreads to keep up!
Winter Solstice, Elin Hilderbrand
This is the fourth in the Winter Street series by Elin and was one of the best! All of the four books are light-hearted, full of love and easy to read. They just make my heart happy. I finished this on Saturday while in a deer stand with my dad, and it was just what I needed to make me want to go home and decorate for Christmas. I’ve raved about other Elin Hilderbrand novels here. If you haven’t read anything by her, now is the time 🙂
Just an FYI – this is the only book of the four I’m sharing that I’ve finished. I wanted to share books that we should be reading at the same time. I’m saving them all for winter!
The Break Down, B.A. Paris
I read Behind Closed Doors by this author and knew I had to invest in a second novel when one of my favorite bloggers, Mix and Match Mama, gave it 4/5 stars. It’s supposed to be super surprising and have an incredible plot twist. A lot of the reviews say they “could not put it down”, so that’s a good sign!
The Dry, Jane Harper
When something has more than 4 stars on Goodreads, I know I have to put it on the list of best books for winter 2017. I also think there’s nothing better than cuddling up with a good mystery novel. PLUS, the bio has #1 after it, so there will be a bit of a cliff-hanger I assume!
Dead Letters, Caite Dolan-Leach
There must have a thing for suspense in the winter, because here’s another. “A missing woman leads her twin sister on a twisted scavenger hunt in this clever debut novel of suspense for readers of Luckiest Girl Alive.” That’s all I needed to hear, I’m in for reading it. I have been loving Lisa Gardner novels and this reminds me of one I finished last month on the plane to Seattle, Right Behind You.
Now, my only question is which to start first? I really want to read the dry, but the decision will be made tonight! What are you currently reading? I originally set my book goal at 40 books for this year (LOL), and I want to hit 20 by Christmas. I’m at 17, so here we go!
