Top Ten Tuesday – wintery reads, from cozy to scary


It’s TTT time! As usual, if you’re curious about this, Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl hosts these weekly challenges (so, see her blog for more info). Today’s theme is cozy and wintery reads. Well, as y’all know, I love me a good scary book, and there is something about being snowed in and being frightened out of my PJs. But I also love a good wintery romance or cozy thriller. So, here is going to be a hodgepodge list of winter-themed books.


  1. Snowy fantasy books based on folklore
  2. True Crime
  3. Anything Stephen King
  4. Favorite rereads
  5. Childhood favorites
  6. Thrillers, mysteries, and suspenseful books
  7. Bleak or post-apocalyptic themes
  8. Romantic plots
  9. Short Stories
  10. Poetry

  1. These are all great! I love how you sorted this. So many good reads, and genres, to be found! I’m especially excited to see some poetry and non-fiction on someone’s list. ESPECIALLY since you picked two of my favourite true crime novels. Thanks for sharing!

      1. From King, definitely ‘Salem’s Lot and The Stand. From Roberts it changes depending on my mood but right now I’m really loving her Bride quartet.


      2. I just read those last month or the month before. So good! I’m currently super into an her Irish stories. I loved Salem’s Lot and I’ve saved The Stand to read this month during the dark hours!

  2. I like a good scary read too in the winter, along with occasionally a more cozy type mystery. Something about the cold months! Anyway Murder on the Orient Express sounds great- I’ve never read it but I did see the recent movie and that made me want to read it! Also I’ve never read the Road- I’ve heard it’s pretty bleak but winter is good for post- apoc too! 🙂
