Winter novels part 2

Told you I’d be back! Here are five more of my favourite books to read in the dreary months:

6) A New York Winter’s Tale by Mark Helprin.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/New-York-Winters-Tale/dp/1447247558/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1478267582&sr=8-3&keywords=a+new+york+winters+tale

Yes, you guessed it, snow snow and more snow. There’s a flying horse in it as well.

7) Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Inkheart-Trilogy-Cornelia-Funke/dp/1908435119/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1478267735&sr=1-1&keywords=inkheart

OK, so not very wintry seeing as most of the book takes place in Italy, but the beginning scene where Dustfinger is waiting out in the night-time rain staring at the house is Hallowe’en-ish.

8) The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Witch-Wardrobe-Chronicles-Narnia-HarperCollinsChildrensBooks/dp/B00SLUAKTC/ref=sr_1_7?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1478267919&sr=1-7&keywords=the+lion+the+witch+and+the+wardrobe+book

For the snow again, obviously, and the faun under the lamppost, and the White Witch. Also Aslan. I read the Narnia series when I was a child, and still have those books…hiding in my wardrobe.

9) Angels, Arguments, and a Furry Merry Christmas by Karen McCombie.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Angels-Arguments-Furry-Merry-Christmas/dp/043994287X/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1478268131&sr=1-2&keywords=angels%2C+arguments+and+a+furry+merry+Christmas

A touch of humour. I love the voice these books are told in and I love the family in them. Who wouldn’t want to visit their favourite family at this time of year?

10) Viking! By Kevin Crossley-Holland.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Viking-Myths-Monsters-Kevin-Crossley-Holland/dp/184255283X/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1478268274&sr=1-5&keywords=Viking%21+Kevin+crossley+holland

And finally this one. (This list is not in order of preference, just random.) More Norse myths. Yep, can’t read too many of those.

That’s all of ’em. I can only apologise for the long jargon-filled links, but not being very techie I don’t know how else to put them in. Perhaps I will go back and tidy up after myself when I work out how. But first I have to hunt around inside my wardrobe…
