As you know I love seasons and according everything to them. I have been recommending you books based on seasons since 2018, and I’m not ready to stop yet. When last year I focused on three different moods you can have for each time of the year, for 2020 I decided to focus on age ranges.
Therefor, after my middle grade recommendations, here are three young adult novels to read this winter!
❥ The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand
I read this book a few years ago and it truly surprised me because for the first half of the book I was really annoyed by it and thought it was cliché, and then it took a turn for the better and I ended up adoring it. It’s a retelling of A Christmas Carol but it has its own twists and turns and I think it’s the best YA Christmassy book out there!
❥ Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn
I wasn’t the biggest fan of it when I read it last year, but I think it deserves a place on this list. To be honest, if you are looking for something cute and quirky maybe, then this is the book for you. I personally enjoyed the tv show more because, as I suspected, I think the tv show format serves the story better, but to each its own! You should still try it this winter. You may fall in love with it.
❥ Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones
Finally, I’m staying away from Christmas for this one and am recommending a book which I think is perfect for the season, and the title speaks for itself. I read it in November many years ago and thought it was the perfect time to do it. The setting, the story… it was mesmerizing and enchanting. You should definitely give it a go if you love fantasy!
And that’s all!
What books would you recommend to read in winter?
