This week's question...
It’s the depth of winter here where I live right now … what books do you like to read when it’s snowy and white? What books do you read to evoke a real feeling of winter (good or bad)?
I like to read books set in whatever season I happen to be in at that time. Around Thanksgiving/Christmas - I like to read books with those themes (usually a cozy or romance). During October, I like to read spooky/paranormal type books because of Halloween. During the winter, I like to read books that are set around storms - usually snow. Although I've learned that, in real life, there's nothing romantic about a blizzard. LOL
All that being said, since I began reviewing, this hasn't worked out at all for me. I think I only read two holiday books between Thanksgiving and Christmas (and one was for a review). Before I was reviewing, I would read primarily holiday books from Thanksgiving through January (or until I got bored of them).
OTOH, when the weather is cold or stormy here, it's not a terrible thing to read a book set in a warm climate. For a few hours I feel like I'm getting away from the dreary winter.
What do you prefer?
