An appropriate wintery book for the weather?

  1. Mentioning snow, log fires and the lead up to Christmas?
    I can only think of 'Winter Solstice' by Rosamunde Pilcher ...

    I can't think of any particularly Christmassy ones, but "Miss Smilla's feeling for snow" and "The tenderness of wolves" are suitably wintry.
  4. As is The Siege by Helen Dunmore
  5. The Collected Ghost Stories of M.R. James.
  6. 'The Little Stranger' or 'Affinity' by Sarah Walters.
  7. the Charles Dickens Christmas books. It's not just A Christmas Carol.....

    This is a long shot and you may think "never" but I guarantee you'll love it: Sir Gawain and the Green Giant" translated by Simon Armitage. Perfect for a winter's day.
    Also, The Woman in Black, by Susan Hill.
  9. I have just finished "The Winter Ghosts" by Kate Mosse. It's not great literature but a pleasant read for a wintry evening.

    I am currently reading "The Twelve Days of Christmas" by Trisha Ashley. It is a trashy girly book along the lines of Jill Mansell's work, but it is set at Christmas, and involves snow and open fires and a lot of food. I am quite enjoying it so far. The BEST thing about it - it has a SPARKLY COVER!!!!
  11. Brambly Hedge Winter. Utterly enchanting drawings.
