Thursdays – how do I love thee? Although honestly, this Thursday snuck up on me as it means I have nine more days until my next certification exam. Yikes! I better write this quick so I can get back to studying!
Thursday means Booking Through Thursday, my very favorite bookish meme that gets me to think about and talk about books. (But honestly, do we ever really need an excuse to do so?)
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?
I have a very shameful confession. I have not done this once this winter. Trust me; I am neither proud or happy with this fact. I plan to remedy it as soon as I pass this third exam next week.
As for what kind of reading I like on winter days where staying inside under blankets is a must? I am not picky. My only stipulation is that the book keeps me engaged. I read according to my mood, and my tastes vary so much that I will read just about anything if given the time. But, if I am going to spend an entire afternoon reading, then I want something that will suck me right into the story, absorbing me so fully that the afternoon is over before I know it. That is the best type of winter reading, in my opinion.
As for specific books, I honestly cannot think of a one right now. Again, I read according to mood. Some days I might be in the mood for a thriller, and at other times for a romance. Sometimes, I am looking for a quick read and will peruse one of the many young adult novels hanging out on my shelves these days. Either way, if I am reading it on a long winter afternoon, no matter what it is, it is the type of reading I want at that time.
Do you like how I hedged that answer? ;-D Are there specific genres that interest you only in winter? Are there any novels that just scream “winter reading” of which I should be aware?
