BTT: Winter Reading

Winter Reading February 4, 2010

The northern hemisphere, at least, is socked in by winter right now… So, on a cold, wintry day, when you want nothing more than to curl up with a good book on the couch … what kind of reading do you want to do?

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

Definitely historical fiction, preferably one that takes place in Britain.  I want swirling petticoats, lavish gardens, and noble families plotting against each other to win the king’s favor.  High fantasy would be a close second.  Sadly, in Southern California it’s not often that we get the kind of weather that would make for a perfect, cozy day of Winter reading.  But we did have several storms last week and I took every advantage of curling up under a blanket with my favorite pastime.  If only my fireplace was in working condition!

What about you?

    I’d go for anything really, especially something that had some adventure or excitement (and plotting for the throne certainly counts!) to balance out a stormy day of being indoors.

    I love getting really absorbed in a good fantasy when I’m trying to escape the outside world!
