Winter is definitely here. You already know I’m a big fan of the blanket/hot chocolate/book combo. To make things even more perfect, I thought I would suggest a few wintery, snowy books to get you fully in the spirit. Because nothing beats having all the excitement of reading about cold wintry weather while enjoying all the comfort of warm clothes and hot drinks!
