Books for a Blizzard

It is snowing like crazy here!!! 7 inches is on the ground, and it is still going. Most sane people are staying indoors (I love to go outside and play in it!) and keeping warm. If you are stuck indoors and need a little reading inspiration, I have a few reading suggestions for you.

Blankets by Craig Thompson: Hmm maybe I need to read this again today..

The Shining by Stephen King: For those of you who would like a different sort of chill

Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton: A classic snow covered story

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater: When I first read this book, I wasn't sure I liked it. But I haven't been able to stop thinking about it for months! I asked for the series for Christmas and my husband bought it for me. Yay! I am actually reading it again today.

A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick: Stark and cold.

The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder: This would be a fun family read aloud, especially if you turn out all the lights except one to read by. You can all imagine how isolated it would have been that winter for the Ingalls family.

So slip on your slippers, grab a mug of your favorite warm beverage, and enjoy your snuggly reading time!


  1. Great suggestions! I hear we might even have a touch of snow here in Texas next week. I know, right? Crazy talk. I enjoyed The Long Winter, A Reliable Wife, and The Shining. Maybe I'll pick up Ethan Frome if we really do get some snow next week. :)

    1. Wow snow in Texas! That is crazy talk! Ethan Frome was really good! But also really messed up. Lol. It's a short read though. :)

  2. First, I am mad jealous you're getting snow! Secondly, these are all excellent snow reads, although I haven't read A reliable wife yet. Get out there and play, then come back into read!


I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
