Brrr! After an unusually warm autumn, the temperature has dropped and today I woke up to a chilly -4ºC morning. However, the sun is shining brightly and while there is a nip to the air, there is warmth in front of the fire and what better day to list my top 10 winter reads for those frosty days of winter.
1. The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
2. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (I’m reading it right now and try to read it each year)
3. Master and Man by Leo Tolstoy
4. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
5. Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton
6. Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak
7. Moominland Midwinter by Tove Jansson
8. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
9. Winter Holiday by Arthur Ransome
10. A Maigret Christmas by Georges Simenon
Whoo, I squeaked right under the Tuesday wire and what a list I came up with! Can’t wait to read some of them and for the next Top Ten Tuesday hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl!
My last Top Ten Tuesday was Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump
